Sen. Leila M. de Lima's Handwritten Notes
Dispatch from Crame No. 39 & 40

Dispatch from Crame No. 39

3 / 24 / 17

8:40 p.m.

A small group of elderly women came to visit me this afternoon. These are total strangers. Decent-looking and well-mannered, they claim to be parishioners from a church near Crame.

To my amazement, they came across well-versed on the goings on in our country. With unsophisticated candor, they talked about Duterte's rudeness. His cursing, his dark psychology and obsession with drugs, while neglecting other urgent concerns such as the economy, jobs and traffic.

These women were also aghast about Duterte's handling of the Benham Rice issue and sell-out to China. They expressed disdain towards Duterte's men - Alvarez, Aguirre, Calida & Panelo - their arrogance and propensity to lie.

Voters were clearly duped, so they concluded.

I told myself as I feel it in my gut that there must be a multitude of like-minded citizens out there, sharing exactly the same sentiments. There must be a silent majority now.

And so there is HOPE...



Dispatch from Crame No. 40

As I become stronger each day, this is what I honestly think--

I am their problem. I am their curse. Those evil elements who orchestrated this grand travesty of justice foisted upon me must now be shaking on their knees.

Amidst their continued vilification of my person and honor, they don't really know how to handle me. They know that they cannot persist in their lies and machinations.

With the whole world watching, and more and more people gaining discernment about this regime's capacity for evil, my tormentors must realize that locking me up in jail and stripping me of my rights is a huge mistake.

They must tremble where they stand....
