    A resolution delivered by European Union lawmakers said they had serious concerns that the charges against Senator Leila de Lima, who was arrested last month, “are almost entirely fabricated”.

    De Lima has been the most outspoken politician against Duterte, vowing to keep fighting the “sociopathic serial killer” even as she was arrested by armed police.The EU text said De Lima was a human rights advocate who could face a sentence from 12 years up to life in prison and be expelled from the senate if convicted.
    It raised concerns for her safety in prison. “There are numerous claims of torture in places of detention that are not giving rise to inquiries … Senator De Lima was exposed to a torrent of harassment and intimidation from the authorities,” it said.
    Responding to the resolution, Philippine presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella denied the charges were politically motivated.“You know, they seem to have a misunderstanding of what’s happening to De Lima. The lady is being charged with crime, not political persuasions, so I think they ought to respect that,” Abella was quoted by local outlet Rappler as saying.

    1. De lima is outspoken and outrageous as part of her defense mechanism aiming to let the people believed on what she is trying to say that is very rude. Majority of the people want her to be sentenced to life or death. International court believed on her of many lies. The people found her to be desperate woman that she is doing what she could do and whatever it takes she can be out of prison.
