‘Coward Duterte’: Senator De Lima demands court show evidence against her

Amnesty International has listed her as a “Human Rights Defenders Under Threat” after, they claim, Duterte made her a “target of his divisive rhetoric.” … In an open act of defiance as she left the court, De Lima shouted a scathing tirade against the president, calling him a coward for pulling out of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

After it was revealed… that drug charges were dropped against suspected drug lords Kerwin Espinosa and Peter Lim due to lack of evidence to bring them to trial, opposition lawmakers also called for the release of De Lima. Their request was unsuccessful, however, after Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the DOJ resolution that freed the two kingpins “will not affect” De Lima’s case as “there are other witnesses who would testify against the lady senator,” … De Lima’s arraignment was reset once again and is now set for May 18, 2018, meaning she will have been in custody for one year and three months without seeing trial.
