Senator Leila de Lima was reunited with her ailing mother Norma in their Iriga home in Camarines Sur on Thursday, August 15.

De Lima arrived at their family home past 7 am on Thursday. It was very emotional.

“It’s a glorious day for us because after [903] days, our sister is able to come back here in Iriga to be with her family, to be with our ailing mother,” De Lima’s younger brother Vicente “Vicboy” de Lima III told reporters.

“And for the first time, in a long, long time, kumpleto po kaming apat na magkakapatid para samahan ang aming nanay (the 4 of us siblings were complete to accompany our mother),” Vicboy added.
