Sen. Leila M. de Lima's Tweet/quick reaction on the letter of the Calbayog police requesting for the names of lawyers

State agents have become so brazen under the cloak of impunity that they are now blatantly trying to weaponize our judiciary against lawyers. Talagang may nakalagay pang "mode of neutralization" sa sulat. Clearly, hit list ng mga abogado ang hinihingi nila. It is an obvious attempt to warn lawyers especially after the widespread outrage caused by the massacre of 9 activists in Southern Tagalog last week. That letter is a death threat and I trust that no one will accede to such alarming attempt to violate human rights, especially the right of anyone to legal services. ###
