House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez said he is also a member of a DDS , but not the Davao Death Squads, but a member of DDS ‘Diehard Duterte Supporters’.
“DDS does not exist; the only DDS I know is the Diehard Duterte Supporters, and I’m one of them,” Alvarez said.
Speaker Alvarez also questioned the ‘true motive’ of Senator Leila de Lima, as he slammed de Lima for inaction during her term as justice secretary and head of the Commission on Human Rights.
“If indeed there was a crime committed based on the investigation, then she should have filed the case in the past,” he said.
He said Sen. de Lima might be using the hearing on extrajudicial killings as a ‘cover-up’, since the House inquiry on the proliferation of illegal drugs will start next week.
“I think De Lima already knows who those witnesses are; that’s why she’s been making a lot of noise in the Senate hearing,” Alvarez said. “She’s making it look like she’s being persecuted — of course not”.
