Senator Leila de Lima on Wednesday dared President Rodrigo Duterte to have her arrested immediately amid accusations of her involvement in the illegal drug trade.
“Tama na. Hulihin ninyo na ako ngayon. ‘Yun naman talaga gusto niyo. Ikulong ninyo na ako ngayon. I’m here. Do what you want to me, Mr. President. I will wait for you,” De Lima said.
The embattled senator said she will not run away from the allegations against her, no matter how concocted these are, as she reiterated her innocence.
“What am I supposed to do now? Tell me now. I’m not going to leave this country and escape anything because there is nothing to escape from,” De Lima said.
“I want to fight here in the country. Hindi po ako duwag dahil wala akong kasalanan. ‘Yung mga nagtatago lamang, at tsaka ‘yung mga duwag ang umaatras. Hindi si Leila de Lima. Hindi ako pinalaki ng tatay ko para maging duwag,” the senator added.
