After Sen. Leila De Lima's shocking revelation on her past relationship with her driver, Ronnie Dayan, who had allegedly transported money and drugs for her inside the national penitentiary, the Senator is under fire, this time from the partylist of women in the Congress.
The Gabriela Women's Party has spoken up about the issue and slammed De Lima for using her gender in defending her case. They stated:
“So-called “frailties of women”, even men or any gender for that matter, can never be citer as a defense for crimes, be it adultery, abuse of authority by a public official o drug trafficking. It should not be used–especially by one who holds a position of power like Senator Leila De Lima– as an excuse from criminal accountability or to paint herself as a victim”
Gabriela representative Luzviminda Ilagan further said: “She should quit or resign from the Senate because what she did was unethical, immoral and definitely wrong. She should not use being a woman and she should not use other women as an excuse that she was weak at meron iyang frailty. May kahinaan kaya nagawa niya yun”
