Senator Leila De Lima Slams Selection Of Maria Ressa As TIME Person Of The Year

BA926A60-13CA-46F0-87D7-596FDDB7EC23.jpegMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Incarcerated Senator Leila De Lima has slammed the choice of Maria Ressa as TIME magazine’s 2018 Person of the Year.

“Unlike myself, Ressa is free to roam around.  I have been incarcerated for my political views, while the Rappler CEO is being charged for tax evasion. It just makes sense for TIME to honor me instead of Ressa,” De Lima said.

Neither TIME nor Ressa have responded to The Adobo Chronicles request for comment on De Lima’s statement.
