The justice committee report on the illegal drug trade at the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) was adopted in plenary Wednesday evening. Following that, the House of Representatives stood pat on its stand not to recommend the filing of drug trafficking charges against Sen. Leila de Lima.
It is first time in Congress’ history to have an overwhelming approval of the majority of 294 members even if the our hearings consistently indicated De Lima had accepted drug money.
This angered opposition Rep. Edcel Lagman of Albay, who branded the move of the members of the super majority coalition as nothing but another “railroad and lightning speed” where it “inordinately fast-track(ed) the approval of bills and resolutions by the plenary.”
“It must afford essential and indispensable debates and discussions on legislative measures before summoning its numerical ascendancy for the approval of measures,”
“The lightning speed by which the House approved the report, with irrelevant expositions and findings on Sen. De Lima’s alleged acceptance of drug money for her senatorial bid, was a thunderbolt which struck many members of the House,”
It is final, there will be no charges to be thrown at De Lima. How do you feel about this?
