De lima said,”Akala ko ba pinagtatawanan lang ni Senator Ping itong persecution and harassments being done to me as he recalls his own harrowing experience with the Mawanay episode.”
Mawanay once linked Lacson of involvement in drug trafficking but later recanted his accusation.
“Why Senator Ping saying now, based on media reports, that there’s enough basis to now file charges against me prescinding from what transpired at yesterday’s House hearing?”
De lima said “is he convinced of the authenticity and veracity of the stories of those obviously perjured witness? I’m aghast by some people’s propensity for doublespeak!” she said.
Lacson said in a text messaging that his statement was not only based on the witnesses’ testimonies but also on other pieces of evidence.
“I based my statement not only on the testimonies given in the HOR hearing yesterday but on other pieces of evidence that I happen to be aware of,” Lacson said.
“I can bet that once the preliminary investigation to be conducted by the DOJ against her is conducted, probable cause will be established, hence a warrant for her arrest will be issued by the court,” he added.
“I wasn’t referring to the credibility of evidence being presented against her now and against me before but the degree of harassment that former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and her cohorts in practically all the agencies of Government were throwing against me,” Lacson added.
“I was all alone at that time. I had practically nobody on my side except probably my family, while she has he LP allies supporting her now. She shouldn’t be twisting my statement to suit her purpose. Between us, I wonder who’s doublespeaking?” he added.
