“Pasensiya napo kayo do’n sa outburst ko, sa pag-walk out ko. Hanggat maaari di dapat yan ginagawa pero humihingi ako ng paumanhin,” De Lima said.
“That’s my best expression of protest for the things happening. Di ko na po nagustuhan, I was being ganged up. Di na ko pinapakinggan.”
“Himihingi ako ng pag-unawa na wala napo akong ibang choice kagabi. It’s too much already. Ano po punto ko pa doon? Para lalo na nga ako i-crucify?” De Lima said.
“I still have my self-esteem, notwithstanding the cruel things being done to me by the members of the House, some members of the Senate, cohort’s nila sa labas,” she added.
“Di po sila huminto, nakikita nila na nakatayo pa ako. Kaya I have to continue standing because I don’t want to give them the pleasure of seeing me beaten dahil alam ko tama pinaglalaban ko,” she said.
De Lima maintained that she would not back down, because she don’t want to give her enemies the satisfaction of seeing her fall down.
De Lima’s still waiting for Gordon’s apology for accusing her of a serious violation of material concealment.
