SEN. Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go on Tuesday said President Rodrigo Duterte had expressed no objection if the courts will allow detained Sen. Leila de Lima to see her ailing mother.
Go said Duterte told him he had no objection if the courts would grant de Lima’s request for a temporary furlough.
In an urgent motion, de Lima asked Muntinlupa City Regional Trial Court Branches 205 and 256 to grant her a temporary furlough on Aug. 15, 2019, or as soon as possible, to visit her mother,
Norma Magistrado de Lima, possibly for the last time.
Since her detention in February 2017, de Lima has only seen her mother twice.
In her motion, de Lima said her mother was in critical condition at the Villanueva Tanchuling General Hospital in Iriga City and that doctors warned that her mother’s condition could further deteriorate.
