Solicitor General Jose Calida on Thursday described Senator Leila de Lima as "public enemy number one."

Calida made this pronouncement in a Malacañang press briefing as he enumerated his office's accomplishments while also citing instances wherein they opted not to side with the government entity for the public's sake.

Among the latter is De Lima's "test case" against President Rodrigo Duterte.

"There’s another interesting case concerning Public Enemy Number 1, and I’m referring to Senator Leila de Lima versus Rodrigo Roa Duterte in the case for the issuance of a writ of habeas data," he said, adding that he cannot yet argue the merits of the case because it is still under judicial consideration.
