Ponce-Enrile shared a similar experience to that of De Lima having witnessed the arrest of her father in the Senate back in 1990.

JPE’s only daughter recalled how her father was first brought to the office of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) with the arrest team being led by Alfredo Lim.
She also shared that none of the senators during that time accompanied his father but then senator Erap Estrada.
Comparing it to de Lima’s plea to not be arrested in the Senate halls, Ponce-Enrile said, “It has been done before.”
De Lime has mentioned that she refused to be arrested in her home and in the Senate but will willingly surrender to the authorities “when the sun has risen.
"I have nothing against the lady Senator. I actually know how it feels being in that situation,” Ponce-Enrile said.
Last year, Katrina hit Senator Leila de Lima for “forgetting” that once upon a time, when she was justice secretary, she “shamed some political individuals.”
“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,” said Katrina Ponce Enrile in a Facebook post.
