"I'd like to think it's because of my stance against the extra judicial killings and other policies ng ating kasalukuyang administrasyon (of our current administration)," De Lima said.

"Napaka-deplorable po ng sitwasyon natin sa Pilipinas, hinggil sa usapin ng karapatang pantao," she said. "Walang katapusan, araw-araw na pinapatay in the name of the war on drugs... Talaga pong tinutukan natin from day 1."

"Bihirang-bihira naman tayo nakakita ng mga pinapatay nila na mga high profile drug lords so napaka-questionable talaga," she added.

"Meron tayong pangulo na talaga namang openly na pino-promote na openly ine-encourage ‘yung killings, di ho ba sa kampanya pa lang niya, ganun na, akala nung iba biro lang ‘yun," De Lima said.

"Eto po ay para sa Pilipinas, eto po ay para sa… I'm offering this award sa ating mga kababayan lalo na 'yung mga lumaban noon para sa ating demokrasya, 'yung mga lumalaban pa rin ngayon para i-preserve ‘yung gains of democracy," De Lima said.

  2. Delima is a fake human rights advocate, I don't think she was not informed about the crime rate index during the time of former president Aquino which is heigher than this present administration.

    During Aquino's presidency usually the victims of human rights are the innocents such like children who were gang raped, a woman who were stabbed by a criminals and etc. Atleast in this present administration criminals were hunted down not the innocents.

    But note, hunted down in accordance with law. The president ordered the law enforcment to go after criminals and arrest them, however if they offer violent resistance that may cause their life put in jeopardy, shot the criminal dead.

    I don't think it is unlawful! only delima says it is. Because she was allegedly the protector of druglords, she was also alegedlly responsible for opening the philippines in narco politics.
