A prominent lawyer who graduated from UP wrote an open letter to Senator Leila de Lima on her Facebook wall claiming the latter of using human rights and  rights of women in order to oust President Rodrigo Duterte.

Atty. Trixie said that she did not feel compelled to defend the president but felt that she should defend the country from a senator's "ill-disguised attempt to oust a duly elected leader,"

She reiterated while De lima sat as Secretary of Justice women were trafficked into Bilibid and the families of inmates would complain, adding that women were treated like commodities.

"You do human rights and rights of women a disservice. You have made these principles hostage in your attempts to stave off incipient criminal cases. You have made them strategic initiatives." she wrote.

She said now De lima have the gall to insist due process and the rule of law but failed to obey the decision of the Supreme Court during her term and was not above the Aquino naming and shaming campaign either.

"Are you really concerned about the dead, Senator? Are you really pro-women? Because right now, all I see is that you are pro-Delima".
