Katrina Ponce Enrile said this in a Facebook post: “Senator De Lima forgets that when she was the Secretary of Justice she knew full well that she shamed some political individuals, one of whom was my father and she did it without abandon.”
Senator Enrile was among the politicians named by “pork barrel queen” Janet Napoles for alleged pocketing of government funds through fake projects.

Enrile and former senators Jinggoy Estrada and Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr – were the first top government officials to be arrested following revelations made by key whistleblower and former Napoles aide Benhur Luy.
De Lima was controlling the Justice department then.
“She knew that the cases she filed were less than forthright. She knew Benhur Luy forged their signatures. Yet she persisted. She handpicked a few Senators to persecute publicly and she was relentless.” Enrile’s daughter said.
“I do not wish any ill on the Senator but, just saying, that she also did the same thing when she was in power,” she added.
President Rodrigo Duterte has been attacking de Lima for allegedly being tied to drug lords under the Aquino administration. This is following de Lima’s investigation of the extra-judicial killings in Duterte’s war against illegal drugs.
De Lima has denied all of the president’s accusations.
More than 600 drug suspects have been killed in police operations all over the country. Police are also investigating 900 vigilante-style drug-related deaths. MJM
