Senator Leila de Lima was infuriated and hurt when her personal life was dragged and became the topic during the hearing on the alleged New Bilibid Prison illegal drug trade.

According to De Lima the hearing was merely a spectacle which diverted the members of Congress from focusing on more important issues.
Soon, she believes, she will be facing her detractors.
De Lima said that the glaring inconsistencies in the statements of the witnesses “speak for itself.”
“As a woman, it breaks my heart that my private life and personal relationship has become subject of the public and Congress' ridicule,” said the Senator.
She emphasized that no woman, regardless of her status in life, deserves the kind of disrespect she got.
She lamented the fact that people whom she trusted fell to “deceit and intimidation,” such that they twisted the facts just to save themselves.
