Interview with Leila de Lima, political prisoner

On August 21, her 181st day of incarceration and a week short of her birthday, Senator Leila de Lima gave me a wide ranging interview, perhaps the most extensive she has ever given.  The last time I saw her was in totally different circumstances, when we faced off as opposing candidates for the Senate at a debate sponsored by Rappler in April 2016.  I never imagined that at our next meeting she would be a tightly guarded political prisoner at Camp Crame.
