De Lima walks out during Sen. Cayetano's privilege speech

Senator Leila De Lima walked out while her colleague Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano was giving a privilege speech during Monday's regular session.

The former justice secretary appeared angry and irritated as she gathered her documents and personal belongings before going out of the plenary hall.

In an ambush interview, De Lima said "I cannot stand it" adding that she plans to deliver her own privilege speech on Tuesday.

In his privilege speech, Cayetano slammed De Lima for presenting an incredible witness, self-confessed hired killer Edgar Matobato, to pin down President Rodrigo Duterte.

When Cayetano was done, Sen. Manny Pacquiao moved to declare the chairmanship and membership of the Senate Committee on Justice and Human Rights, which De Lima chairs, vacant.

As the motion was pending, Sen. Frank Drilon, De Lima's co-Liberal Party member, pointed out that the chairmanship cannot be declared vacant.

Another senator asked that the session be suspended.
