Tony La Vina visits De Lima for birthday
Abogado Tony La Vina visited detained Senator Leila De Lima for her birthday. The abogado was able to exchange pleasantries with the former Justice Secretary who is detained for drug charges.
Visited Sen Leila De Lima & greeted her a happy birthday. She is in good spirits, telling me Bishop Ted Bacani quoted passages from my column. Bishop Ted in turn teased me for beatifying Sen Leila. An unjust detention can be a purifying experience and that is happening to her. pic.twitter.com/n8kKIOu8xs
