casino slots nz Women’s rights group Gabriela on Tuesday reacted to Sen. Leila De Lima’s statement saying she fell for her former driver, Ronnie Dayan, due to the “frailties of a woman.”

beetle mania slot bedava oyna In a statement, Gabriela said the so-called frailties of women even men or any gender can never be cited as a defense for crimes, be it adultery, abuse of authority by a public official or drug trafficking.

casino royale oyna “It should not be used—especially by one who holds position of power like Senator Leila de Lima—as an excuse from criminal accountability or to paint herself as a victim,” Gabriela said.

Gabriela’s statement was released after De Lima admitted she had an affair with Dayan, who is a married man. President Rodrigo Duterte last July branded De Lima as an immoral woman for having an affair with her driver.

De Lima for her part, however, defended herself from the accusations saying she cannot allow her personal life to affect her work in public service.

“My track record as a public official, first as Commission on Human Rights chair and next as secretary of justice, speaks for itself. My record and my reputation have been untarnished until now because of all these unjust, unfair and false allegations and fabricated lies against my alleged involvement in the drug trade. I have made my peace with my past and my family. I don’t know if my primary attacker can say the same,” De Lima said in a statement, adding that her mission is to stop the extrajudicial killings and summary executions happening in our country, as well as to address other social issues.

“I am even more determined in pursuing this goal despite the danger to my life and reputation,” the senator added.
