De Lima vows to “Continue opposing this murderous regime” after being inspired as recipient of the “Prize for Freedom”





"Political Prisoner" Senator Leila de Lima 


Inspired by the recognition for being chosen as the recipient of the “Prize for Freedom” award by the Liberal International (LI), Senator Leila de Lima felt elated and promised to “continue opposing this murderous regime.”

De Lima said in a statement on Wednesday that “I am humbled and honored to be chosen as the recipient of this prestigious Human Rights Prize, which was also bestowed to former president and democracy icon Corazon Aquino.”  

“More than a recognition, I regard this award as an inspiration that strengthens my resolve to continue opposing this murderous regime, its outright disregard for human rights and trampling of human dignity to my last breath, especially because I am not alone in my fight,” she added.

More than 100 liberals from 32 countries participated in LI’s 199th Executive Committee meeting.

De Lima would be the second Filipino to accept the Human Rights Prize since LI had conferred similar recognition to former President Corazon Aquino in 1987. The LI recognized Mrs. Aquino “for her world-renowned advocacy of democracy, peace, and the empowerment of women.”
