to DOJ chief designate Leila de Lima – it is the constitution and the law, stupid

we celebrate noynoy aquino’s choice as DOJ chief in Leila de Lima. this woman knows her laws and has more balls than all the men in arroyo’s cabinet members have.

in her new role, we hope de lima will remember her true role – defender of the constitution and laws of the country, nothing more and nothing more. she serves the people in doing that job.

we are saying that as we have seen the various DOJ chiefs under arroyo forgetting what their job is.  under arroyo, the DOJ chief lawyered only for gloria macapagal arroyo, the person and the president, not for the country, not for the people and certainly not for the constitution and our laws.

we hope de lima will return DOJ  to its rightful place.

Rights chief to head DoJ

De Lima’s job: Pursue big grafters

MANILA, Philippines—A woman is poised to take on the toughest portfolio in the Cabinet of President-elect Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.

Leila de Lima, the outspoken chair of the Commission on Human Rights (CHR), met with Aquino at his Times Street residence shortly before 2 p.m. Tuesday and left an hour later.

“He offered the position, I accepted. He will make the announcement,” De Lima told reporters after the meeting. She did not specify the position but it is widely assumed to be that of the justice secretary.

She said she would have to resign from the CHR where she is in the second year of a 7-year term.

The feisty legal eagle rose to prominence as a tough-talking election lawyer for the Genuine Opposition in 2007. She was appointed CHR chair when President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was parrying criticism for the record number of extrajudicial killings in her term.

Aquino had earlier told the Philippine Daily Inquirer that the justice portfolio was very crucial in his fight against corruption. He said his justice secretary would serve as his attack dog in pushing corruption cases against the First Family and its allies, crime syndicates, drug lords and smugglers.
