DOJ Secretary de Lima considered resigning

Abandon Shet quoted Bloomberg:

Philippine Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said she’s staying at her post hours after saying she may quit over President Benigno Aquino’s failure to adopt some of the actions she recommended against persons involved in the August bus hijacking that left eight Hong Kong tourists dead.

“I continue to fully support and remain dedicated to the President and to the fulfillment of his dreams for this country,” said in a statement. “Certain positions are bound to differ, even oppose each other. We cannot be so onion-skinned as to contemplate resignation every time our perspective is not adopted in its entirety by the President.”
