Justice Chief De Lima blows top on alleged ‘grandstanding’

Justice Secretary Leila De Lima on Friday blew her top on published reports describing her as “grandstanding”.

Reports had it that De Lima was allegedly “grandstanding” on her reaction in connection with the acquittal by the Muntinlupa City Regional Trial Court (RTC) of the two members of the so-called “Alabang Boys”.

It can be recalled that Muntinlupa City RTC Judge Juanita Guerrero acquitted Richard Brodett and Jorge Joseph of drug charges due to the break in the “chain of custody of evidence”.

De Lima had said that they are planning to file a motion for reconsideration seeking a reversal of the ruling of the Muntinlupa City RTC acquitting Brodett and Joseph of violation of Republic Act 9165, otherwise known as the “Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002″.

De Lima said that it’s unfair that she was accused of “grandstanding” when in fact she was just replying on the questions of the members of the media.

“Kaya ako sumasagot dahil tinatanong n’yo ako,” De Lima told reporters in an ambush interview.

Every time that she opens her mouth, De Lima said, every thing that she speaks about are being used against her.

She said that it’s also wrong to say that the reason why she often times speaks to the media was due to her plans to run for senator in 2013.
