Panelo To De Lima: The Law Of Karma Has Finally Caught Up With The Senator

"Unlike when she affected the arrest of former President GMA despite the absence of criminal charge and a warrant of arrest issued by a competent court. She is being given due process which she shamelessly denied FPGMA when she was Secretary of Justice."
Panelo De Lima
The message of Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo on Thursday after the Muntinlupa Regional Trial Court (RTC) branch 204 issued warrant of arrest against Senator Leila De Lima went viral on social networking site, Facebook.

The issuance of a warrant for the arrest of Senator de Lima means the issuing court finds probable cause that she may have probably committed the crime charged.

She should welcome this development herself as she is now given the opportunity to refute any and allegations and/or evidence to be presented by the prosecution against her.

This is where the real battle begins and not in the media that she relishes to use against the President.

The rule of law, as President Duterte keeps on harping every time he has the opportunity, must prevail.
Unlike when she affected the arrest of former President GMA despite the absence of criminal charge and a warrant of arrest issued by a competent court.

She is being given due process which she shamelessly denied FPGMA when she was Secretary of Justice.

The law of karma has finally caught up with the senator in terms of being arrested and detained.

She, however, remains constitutionally presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt, a presumption she viciously denied the critics of the previous administration.
The statement above was shared by Mocha Uson on her Facebook page and captioned it with:

Karma.

Noong Secretary of Justice pa lamang si De Lima, ipinagkait niya ang ang due process kay GMA at ipinaaresto ito kahit na walang warrant of arrest at kaso laban sa kanya. Tinrato nila si GMA na guilty na kaagad kahit na sa mata ng batas, siya ay inosente pa.
As of writing, Panelo's statement shared by Uson has generated 1,000 shares and more than 8,100 different reactions from her Facebook followers.
