Locsin blames De Lima lawyers for ‘delayed’ acquittal in drug case

Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddyboy Locsin said Senator Leila De Lima’s abogados are to blame for the three-year wait for an acquittal in one of the three drug charges filed against her by the Duterte administration.

The Cabinet official refuted the remarks of activist Teddy Casiño, who claimed that she should not have been charged and sent to jail for that long.

:Her lawyers resorted to delaying tactics. Prosecution cannot ask for postponement because it either has evidence for probably cause or it does not. So it was her defense lawyers that dribbled the ball,” Locsin said, insisting that the local justice system “works.”
