    Salvador Panelo to Leila De Lima: Get medical help

    After the tirades of Senator Leila De Lima against President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo advised the former Secretary of Justice to see a competent medical professional to assist her in these trying times.

    Per Panelo, De Lima's recent pronouncements against the President such as "criminal", "sociopathic serial killer", "murderer" and "dictator" could be grounds for criminal liability.

    "Concerned with the mental and psychological state of Senator [Leila] de Lima, it is for her best interest that she engages the services of a competent medical 

    professional to assist her in these trying times," stated Panelo.

    He added, "Her continued and relentess tirades against President Duterte could lead to criminal liabilty for the commission of the crime of inciting to sedition... Under the law, inciting to sedition refers to a crime committed by someone who, without taking any direct part in sedition, incites others to inflict any act of hate or revenge against the person of the President by means of speech, among others.
    The Chief Presidential Counsel also pointed out that the existence of the Davao Death Squad and extrajudicial killings were already discussed and raised during the presidential campaign, still President Duterte won by landslide.

    "The electorate in giving President Rodrigo Roa Duterte an overwhelming mandate has factored such issue hence the people have spoken in repudiating such lie," he said.
