De Lima claims PNP keeping media away from her

/ 07:18 AM June 16, 2018

Sen. Leila de Lima has criticized what she said were “efforts” of the Philippine National Police (PNP) to keep the media away from her during a hearing at the Quezon City Metropolitan Trial Court Branch 34 last Wednesday.

“They have a right, the media, let them be. And it’s also my right to say something, to express things,” De Lima said as police escorts tried to block reporters’ cameras.
