Many are still questioning the Philippine government’s decision to let Leila de Lima leave the country. This amid all the allegations of her involvement in the illegal drug trade, and cases already filed against her. Actress Vivian Velez is one of thousands, if not millions, of Filipinos question this decision.

In a social media entry, Velez thinks the allegations and cases against De Lima are enough to prevent her from leaving the country.

“Why was De Lima allowed to leave? She is on DOJ’s Watch List Order (WLO) but was not issued an HDO. The testimonies during the probes at the Senate and the House of Representatives on the illegal drug trade in the New Bilibid Prison should have been enough to prevent De Lima from leaving the country,” Vivian Velez wrote on Facebook.

The actress even doubts Leila de Lima will return as promised. In fact, Vivian thinks the senator will seek political asylum abroad.

“She promised and scheduled to return on December 22. Will she come back to the country after her official travel? I doubt It, she can and will seek asylum abroad,” she added.

Based on comments to her entry, many agree with Vivian Velez. Many think De Lima should not have been allowed to leave the Philippines due to the gravity of allegations being hurled against her. And, with the way she has handled herself since the issues surfaced, as well as her pronouncements about the allegations and testimonies of witnesses, it is not far-fetched to think that Leila de Lima may seek asylum abroad citing ‘political persecution’ as the cause.

On the other hand, there are also those who think Senator Leila de Lima should be given the benefit of the doubt, at this point. Somehow, this writer does not agree with this view.
