The Palace warned Sandra Cam on Saturday against using the Commission on Appointments (CA) as a venue to launch her personal attacks against Justice Secretary Leila de Lima.

Palace deputy Spokesperson Abigail Valte was reacting to Cam’s threats that she will release a four-part video of the Justice chief and her lover if the CA confirms de Lima’s appointment.

“The CA is not a venue for letting out whatever ax there are that you want to grind personally against Secretary de Lima,” Valte said in an interview aired on Radyo ng Bayan.

“It’s prudent not to respond to threats like this because what the CA evaluates is the competence of the President’s appointees, in the case of Secretary de Lima, as Justice Secretary,” Valte added.

De Lima, 54, is mother of two. She was previously married to Plaridel Bohol but their marriage was already annulled.

    >>>Ms Valte, ANG PANUNUNGKULAN SA PAMAHALAAN AY HINDI LAMANG SA PAGIGING “COMPETENCE”, KASAMA RIN AT DAPAT LAMANG NA SIYA AY ISA RIN TAMANG HUWARAN SA PANUNUNGKULAN. Noong kapanahunan ni dating PGMA marami rin sa inyong grupo na opposition ang kung anu-ano ang pinararatang ninyo personal na may kalaguyo si PGMA, si FG at noon din kay dating SC CJ Corona. NGAYON KAYO ANG NASA PWESTO NALALAMAN NINYO RIN PALA NA HUWAG IHALO ANG PERSONAL NA ATTAKE SA MGA GALAMAY NA GANID KATULAD NG AMO MONG SI NGUYNGOY.

    Am wondering about the motive of the personal attack against the highly qualified Secretary of Justice who has been in the job for quite sometime now. President Aquino put her there and was allowed to work that long already even without the benefit of confirmation protocol. And, so far, she is doing an excellent job. The late Secretary Robredo (may he rest in peace) was in the same boat (not confirmed as well I heard) until he met his creator. And the good secretary has performed an excellent job that will let history keep him alive. So, let’s leave Secretary Delima alone with respect to her private life most especially in physical exercises with the help of a partner. Who doesn’t do that anyway? Tell me? As long as her excellent performance as secretary of justice is not affected, I think not a problem.

  3. Doesn’t Valte know anything about politics? It’s a blood sport. Be prepared for a savage attack from your opponents through surrogates.

  4. Sexual relationships between two consenting adults should not be anybody’s business but when such person holds such a high profile position, in our government, then it becomes a sensation and public scrutiny follows.De Lima is no exception.

  5. Competence lang? Eh paano yung pagiging moral? Hhmmmhhh! malacanang, malacanang, malacanang! Ano ba talaga ang isip ninyo?
