Liberal Party stalwart and human rights lawyer Chel Diokno is not taking things lightly, he said he is okay for him to be the subject of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s insults, as long as the Chief Executive should also focus on the needs of the people.

In his Twitter account Diokno said his piece : “Okay lang na pag-initan n’yo ako, pero tutukan n’yo rin ang pangangailangan ng mga tao.”



(It’s okay that you’ll criticize me, but you should focus on the needs of the people as well.)

The Chief Executive in one of his unannounced late public address accused Diokno and members of the opposition resorting to black propaganda amid the government’s fight against the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).


At one point, the Chief Executive also insulted Diokno for his appearance, calling him buck-toothed.

The Otso-derecho senatorial candidate recently took on a case of a netizen who was summoned by the National Bureau of Investigation(NBI), for posting online comments critical of the government’s alleged misuse of public funds.


“Balita ko pinatawag ako sa principal’s office kagabi. Tungkol daw sa ngipin ko?” Diokno replied to Duterte’s criticism on Twitter.

(I heard I was called upon to the principal’s office last night? It was because of the teeth?)

“Mr. President, may mga kliyente akong tinutulungan na tinitiis na ang sakit at gutom, ngunit wala akong sinabihang manggulo o lumabag ng batas,” Dioknofurther stated.

(Mr. President, I am helping clients to endure starving, but I never once told them to meddle or disobey the law.)
