Liberal Party elated over US Senate show of support for de Lima

Filipino senators from the Liberal Party (LP) are both happy and elated so much so thanking some US senators for the support they are showing for their beleaguered colleague detained senator Leila De Lima.
The opposition Liberal Party (LP) headed by senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan showed there support for the United States of America Senate proposal to ban those government officials involved in the “unjust and arbitrary detention” of senator Leila De Lima.

“We do not consider the US Senate’s action as an interference in the affairs of a sovereign state. Human beings everywhere — regardless of ethnicity, nationality, class, religion, or gender — must speak out against mass murder,’’ Senator Francis N. Pangilinan, Liberal Party president, said.

‘’We welcome this move of the US senators, an act of solidarity not only for Senator Leila de Lima, but for all the murdered victims, and their orphans, widows, and mothers and fathers, who are now doubly burdened by the absence of a loved one and in many, many cases a family breadwinner,’’ he stressed.
Senator Kiko said Senator de Lima stood up against the ‘’mass murder of our people — as we all should.’’
‘’She is being unlawfully detained — for almost 1,000 days now — for speaking out against the killings of poor, powerless Filipino citizens in the Administration’s so-called war on drugs,’’ he added.

The opposition senator said the LP is more than ever encouraged by the growing number of world leaders recognizing the unjust detention of De Lima.
‘’This US Senate action, as well as the Iceland UN resolution, shows that we are not alone in this fight,’’ he stressed.
