MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – While Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte may have drawn some parallel between himself and Adolf Hitler, Senator Leila De Lima, former Justice Secretary under the Aquino administration, has likened herself to Harry Potter, that fictional darling of awizard created by author J.K. Rowling.
The lady senator made this comparison in a recent speech.
She has been linked to illegal drug trade inside the New Bilibid Prison (National Penitentiary) during her tenure with the Justice Department. She has denied these allegations.
The Adobo Chronicles convened its top editors and writers to try to decipher what De Lima meant when she compared herself to Potter.
We couldn’t find any parallel except that De Lima and Potter both wore neck scarves. And stylish eyeglasses.
