Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Leila De Lima on Thursday brushed aside claims of death threats against former President and now Pampanga (2nd District) Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
However, De Lima said that she was unaware where Arroyo spokesperson Elena Bautista-Horn got her information about a supposed plot to kill the former president through an operation called "Oplan: Put The Little Girl To Sleep."
"Saan ba nanggaling iyon? What are they insinuating?," De Lima told reporters in an ambush interview.
"Saan galing ang death threat.. sa gobyerno? Masyado na yatang ano na yon..at the height of paranoia already," De Lima said.
Horn on Wednesday said that a "very reliable source" from a government agency contacted Mrs. Arroyo's camp several days ago to warn them about the supposed plot.
Horn said that their source warned them to be careful about the food being served to the former president, who is currently confined at the St. Luke's Medical Center in Global City, Taguig City.
