MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – “Buhay pa ako, binurol niyo na ako!” This was the reaction of incarcerated Senator Leila De Lima after she was told a “memorial” was recently held in her honor.
A video of the tribute held at the Senate has gone viral, prompting many gullible netizens to believe that the senator had passed away.
In the video, it appears that Senator Kiko Pangilinan orchestrated the “memorial.” He is shown leading the flower offerers into the Senate chamber.
The flowers were laid at De Lima’s desk and chair where her ‘spirit’ was represented by a blue shawl.
The entire drama was caught on video and was documented by mainstream news media.
Pangilinan has a lot of explaining to do the next time he visits De Lima in Camp Crame.
