BREAKING: Philippines Senator Leila De Lima Seeks Asylum In The EU


CAMP CRAME, Quezon City, Philippines (The Adobo  Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Her spirits buoyed up by a recent resolution of the European Parliament, and seeing no immediate recovery from her failed love life, incarcerated Senator Leila De Lima is now seeking political asylum in any of the countries in the European Union (EU).

She made this manifestation today in a handwritten note on official Senate stationery from her jail cell in the National Police headquarters in Camp Crame. The note was slipped through a jail guard who sent it to Rappler and the Inquirer.

Yesterday, the European Parliament approved a resolution calling for De Lima’s release from prison, calling the drug-related charges against her “fabricated.”

When asked by The Adobo Chronicles which country in the EU she would prefer to be exiled to, she said whichever country imports Philippine bananas (saba).

Alas, none of the EU countries import bananas from the Philippines.
