During the senate inquiry on extrajudicial killings on Monday, December 5, former whistleblower Sandra Cam criticized Senator Leila de Lima after she ordered her to take a seat who was seen standing while Sen. De Lima was asking Philippine National Police Chief Director General Ronald ‘Bato’ Dela Rosa to name the officials who fetched drug lord Kerwin Espinosa from Abu Dhabi.

 “May I ask that lady (Cam) to sit down. She is not part of this. She’s not a resource person. Please ask her to sit down. That’s out of order!” Irked Sen. De Lima said.
According to Cam, she's willing to be requested as a resource person during the hearing to answer Sen. De Lima’s questions because it was her who advised the PNP on Espinosa’s whereabouts after receiving reports from her overseas employee that the alleged drug lord was in Abu Dhabi.

She even joined the team that fetched Espinosa at Abu Dhabi, ABS-CBN News reported.

 Well pinipilit niya (De Lima) chief PNP sino sumundo so pinangalanan ako, so tumayo ako. Gusto ko i-request mo paupuin ako as a resource person para lahat gusto mo malaman ibibigay ko.

Kinekwestyon niya (De Lima) [ang] aking presence, para malaman niya, it was Sandra Cam who tipped police para ma-arrest ang isang drug lord.
However, Cam said that there was no need for Sen. De Lima to raise her voice.

 Wag mo akong sisigaw-sigawan dahil this is the time for me na sagutin ka harapan.

Hindi ako senadora, secretary of justice na pumatol sa bodyguard-driver. Di ako ganyan Leila. Disente ako di gaya mo.

I [am] warning her not to raise her voice because I don’t care [kung] makulong ako, ma-contempt ako lalabanan ko yan dahil hindi naman yan disenteng babae.
