Panelo to De Lima :If you cannot help govt, better lockdown your mouth




Detained opposition senator Leila De Lima the other day called out President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to explain and prove that the remaining funds in the 2019 and 2010 budgets have been already exhausted before he can entertain in selling government assets to augment the war chest of government as it battles the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or covid-19.

This did not sit well with Malacanang as they refuted the detained senator her rhetorics, Presidential spokesperson and concurrent Presidential Legal Adviser Atty. Salvador Panelo called De Lima antics as “blabbering from ignorance.”


Duterte never claimed that the public funds were already exhausted, the Chief Executive’s statement as regards the P275-billion budget for covid-19 will not last ling as funds are never infinite.

“PRRD (President Rodrigo Roa Duterte) didn’t say we have exhausted our funds, he said the funds are not infinite,” Panelo said in a text message.

”She is not listening to the message of the President. She should read the transcript of his televised message,” he said.
“If she cannot help in the government’s efforts to fight Covid-19 she should at least lockdown her mouth,” he added.
