Sen. Leila M. de Lima's Statement on Sen. Lacson's remarks on international groups calling for her release
Dispatch from Crame No. 148

I hope I'm wrong in sensing some bitterness in Senator Lacson's scoffing at international groups, the latest being the Council of Asian Liberals and Democrats (CALD) in calling for my immediate release.

Sana hindi po maranasan ni Sen. Lacson na makulong na walang kasalanan.

Inosente ako. At hindi ako nagtago, sa kabila ng sobrang panggigipit sakin ng rehimen na ito na gumawa ng mga imbentong akusasyon laban sakin.

Sen. Lacson should not disparage these international organizations, all reputable ones, which are simply standing for what is right and just, hence, their expressions of concern, if not disgust, about the injustice of it all.
