MANILA, Nov. 11 –Justice Secretary Leila De Lima is unperturbed by the threats of the camp of former President and now Pampanga (2nd District) Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to file disbarment case against her.

Earlier, Elena Bautista-Horn, spokesperson of the former president, criticized the statements made by De Lima to the media in connection with the alleged application for "political asylum" to the Dominican Republic of Mrs. Arroyo.

De Lima on Friday challenged the camp of the Arroyos to go ahead with the filing of the disbarment case against her.

De Lima said that she has now used to live with such criticisms and attacks against her.

Likewise, De Lima also clarified that such information on so-called "political asylum", did not emanate from her, but rather, she was just replying to the questions of the media. (PNA) RMA/PTR/rsm
