MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Duterte critic Senator Leila de Lima told The Adobo Chronicles today that she is recovering from severe depression.
De Lima said that it all started a few weeks before the Miss Universe Beauty Pageant which concluded Monday in Manila.
“For those few weeks, the country’s and media’s attention were focused on the beauty contestants,” the senator said, ” I can’t even get into the inside pages of the newspapers.”
She called for several press conferences but there was not a single news media outlet that attended.
But now that the pageant is over, De Lima said she will again be the darling of the media, especially Inquirer, Rappler, ABS-CBN and GMA News, not to mention the blogs of Cynthia Patag, Leah Navarro and Raissa Robles.
The Adobo Chronicles scored the interview with De Lima as she was discharged from a local mental therapy clinic.
De Lima’s first after-therapy media statement?
“The PNP under Duterte can now be considered as the most organized criminal group in the country. When you speak of organized crime in the Philippines, you speak of the PNP under Duterte.”
