Senator Leila De Lima walks out of the session hall on Monday’s Senate hearing about the alleged extrajudicial and summary killings imposed by Duterte administration in war against illegal drugs.
The senator moves out of the room when Senator Alan Peter Cayetano started to hit the credibility of the senate witness Edgar Motabado during his privilege speech and accused De Lima of destroying the image of the Senate and the Philippines abroad.
Watch on the video below.
When asked why she walks out, De Lima said: “I cannot stand it. I’m gonna deliver my own privilege speech tomorrow instead of confronting him now.”
