Erin Tañada: Leila de Lima is detained due to ‘obvious political motives’
Former Quezon 4th District Representative Erin Tañada greeted President Rodrigo Duterte’s staunchest critic, detained Senator Leila de Lima, a happy birthday on August 28.
The Quezon politiko compared De Lima to his grandfather, former senator Lorenzo Tañada who was the opposition during the Marcos regime.
Tañada said that his grandfather was also unlawfully arrested by the Marcos regime like De Lima.
“He was unlawfully arrested by the administration to try and silence him,” he said.
“She is also one of the most vocal leaders of today’s opposition, but the Administration imprisoned her for obvious political motives,” he added.
