Duterte committed treason - De Lima




The remaining attack dog of the opposition – detained senator Leila De Lima has accused the sitting president – Rodrigo Roa Duterte of the crime of treason.

This was brought about by Duterte and his officials remarks on the alleged alleged ramming of a Chinese vessels to a Filipino fishing boat by a Chinese vessel in Recto Bank.


Duterte has described the incident as “maritime incident” that should not be blown out of proportion.

In a dispatch from his detention cell in Camp Crame, De Lima said Duterte’s pronouncement was a “treasonous defense of a foreign aggressor” never committed since the Japanese puppet government of President Jose Laurel.
“But at least in the case of the Laurel puppet government, the foreign aggressor was already an occupying force pointing a gun at the Filipino officials,” De Lima said.
The opposition senator further said that the administration of Duterte, “once again acted like a Chinese puppet government, at their own volition.”

“Unlike the Laurel puppet government, their treason is voluntary,” she added.
Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Salvador Panelo, defended the change of the governments statements,  saying they were presented with different sets of information since the ramming occurred.

The lady senator, meanwhile, said President Duterte’s warning of war in cse the Philippines  challenges China’s aggression “is his excuse for this treason.”
“In the past several days, Duterte has whined without end about the hopelessness of the Philippines as a nation. His treason is the logical conclusion of this frustration. Duterte is no longer invested in the Philippines, but in China,” she said.

“The Philippine national interest, as we know it, is now against his own personal interest and fortune. More than a traitor, Duterte is just a glorified carpetbagger, with loyalties to no one but himself.”
