MAGIGING kakosa ni Sen. Leila de Lima sa PNP Custodial Center si dating Gabriela party-list Rep. at ngayo’y National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC) Liza Maza kapag sumuko sa mga awtoridad ang miyembro ng gabinete.
Inihayag ito ni Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque kahapon matapos manawagan kay Maza na sumuko at harapin ang kasong double murder na isinampa laban sa kanya, may 12 taon na ang nakalilipas.
Sinabi ni Roque na hindi mabibigyan ng seguridad ng administrasyon si Maza sakaling sumuko kahit bahagi siya ng opisyal na pamilya ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte.
“I don’t think we can give her security. But possibly, they can give her similar detention facility as what Leila de Lima has,” ani Roque.
“I do not know if they can be roommates with Leila de Lima. I don’t know if they will like each other, but similar treatment perhaps,” dagdag niya.
Tablado rin kay Roque ang ideya na mabigyan ng legal aid si Maza.
“Siguro naman po ay hindi siya madedehado because she’s a member of the Cabinet. I do not know if we are in a position to give her legal assistance because the choice of counsel is hers ‘no. We cannot impose our will. We could recommend if she wants. But I don’t think the courts will violate any of her due process rights because, as you said, she’s a former lawmaker and an incumbent secretary,” sabi ni Roque.
Matatandaang naglabas ng warrant of arrest ang Nueva Ecija regional trial court sa kasong double murder laban kina Maza, dating Bayan Muna party-list representatives Satur Ocampo at Teddy Casino at dating Anakpawis party-list representative at Agrarian Reform Secretary Rafael Mariano.
