La Viña’s advice to Duterte: Free De Lima
The International Criminal Court has finally decided to conduct a preliminary examination against the Duterte administration over the alleged extrajudicial killings due to his so-called drug war.
Abogado and academician Tony La Viña offered an unsolicited advice to the administration in the light of the preliminary examination: Dismiss the cases against Senator Leila De Lima and release her immediately.
“Her continuing detention in processes tainted with lack of due process, legitimized even by a Supreme Court decision, is exhibit number one that our legal and justice system is not working well,” La Viña said.
Will Duterte follow such advice?
