MANILA – Opposition Senator Leila M. de Lima maintained that Mr. Duterte’s refusal to apologize for drug war deaths will never erase his crimes against humanity which he will pay for in due time.

De Lima, the staunchest critic of the Duterte regime’s “War on Drugs”, said that she does not expect Duterte to ask forgiveness from his victims considering that history’s tyrants and mass murderers never apologized for their crimes.

In a tweet, the Senator quipped that “The devil does not apologize. If he ever does, it is never sincere and never without an ulterior motive.”

In a separate message, Dispatch from Crame # 1200, the Senator added, “Since Duterte’s days are numbered in Malacañang and as we ache for better days, it cannot be simply ‘let bygones be bygones’ for the people to whom he owes apology.”
