The Palace sends birthday wish to De Lima following the allegations that she was linked in the drug trade in the National Penitentiary when she was still the DOJ secretary.
''According to President Duterte, Senator De Lima has been having nightmares. So my birthday wish to the good senator is I hope she sleeps soundly tonight and thereafter,'' Panelo told reporters.
This statement was made in response to Senator Leila De lima's birthday wish for President Duterte to leave him alone.
However, Panelo said Duterte's tirade against the former human rights chief is just the beginning. ''Patikim pa lang iyun,'' he said.
The neophyte senator last thursday said she don't like answering nonesense accusation from the President.
