MANILA, Philippines – Blasted for its “ridiculous” move, the Department of Justice (DOJ) on Friday, October 25, defended its request to cancel the passports of 37 persons, including 3 senators, who face plunder and other corruption complaints.

Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said the DOJ, in fact, is considering a bid to cancel the passports of more persons linked to “large-scale graft and corruption.”

Katawa-tawa siguro sa kanila,” De Lima told reporters, “pero katawa-tawa kaya ‘yan sa milyun-milyon na tao natin na naghihirap dahil sa pandarambong ng mga public respondents?” (It may be ridiculous for them, but is it ridiculous for millions of our people who suffer poverty because of the plunder committed by the public respondents?)
