The solicitor general was quoted as saying "There is no need for investigation in aid of legislation kuno. Secretary de Lima, who was Secretary of Justice for 6 years... what happened during her tenure? Lalong lumakas and paglaganap ng droga even in her own territory, at the national pentitentiary." Calida stated.
Sec. Gen. Calida added further that "On the off chance that she's really true to stop this drug menace, let us ask her: what did she do as justice secretary in charge of the [National Bilibid Prison], the prosecution service, and the correctional?" Calida noted.
