Senatorial candidate Jinggoy Estrada during the Miting De Avance of Makati City Mayor Abby Binay mocked detained Senator Leila De Lima after the sudden change of tide to their lives.
During a speech, Estrada who’s trying to make the audience laugh threw shade against De Lima who’s inside Camp Crame for alleged involvement in corruption during her time as the Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary.
De Lima was one of the officials who probed Estrada, together with other senatorial candidates Bong Revilla and Juan Ponce Enrile because of graft.
“Tignan mo yung nagpakulong sa amin? Kilala mo yung nagpakulong sa amin? Yung babae? ‘Yun ang pumalit sa amin sa Camp Crame!” Estrada said.
Estrada also described his detention as “vacation” saying that they’re ready to go back to their work as public servants.
“Mahirap talaga magbakasyon na napag-initan ka na, niyurak ang iyong pagkatao, binaboy ang iyong pagkatao, bigla ka pang kasuhan, bigla ka pang pinakulong.” Estrada said.
“Pero mga kaibigan, malakas ang aking loob, malakas ang aming loob na humarap sa inyo at sabihin sa inyo paulit-ulit na wala po kaming kasalanan sa taumbayan.” he added.
Estrada is facing a plunder charge and only got his temporary freedom by posting bail.
