STATEMENT OF SENATOR CHIZ ESCUDERO ON SENATOR DE LIMA'S ARREST
As her colleague in the Senate, I am saddened by recent events. I know Sen. De Lima to be a fighter and a courageous person who will not let this dampen her spirits.
I pray that truth and justice will prevail in her case--whomsoever its face may look favorably upon--and likewise pray for her children as she faces perhaps the toughest battle in her life.
I will continue to work with her as a Senator, her incarceration notwithstanding, in crafting meaningful legislation and shedding light on the crimes and shortcomings of abusive and corrupt officials in government.
Finally, I pray that she keep the faith and not lose hope in the knowledge and belief that "this, too, shall pass."
