MANILA — Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II on Tuesday said that Senator Leila De Lima's tirades against President Rodrigo Duterte are totally baseless and have no factual basis.
"Totally baseless! Bereft of any factual basis. I just try to understand where Senator de Lima is coming from. She is under a lot of pressure lately. People in her situation can easily make accusations unfounded they may be. I try my best to understand her. All I can do now is to pray for her," Aguirre said in a statement commenting on the lady senator's press conference at the Senate.
