On Friday, De Lima bared her plans to leave for the United States to accept an award and to Germany to speak before the Annual Conference on Cultural Diplomacy.

"Both visits are very important to me because as a senator, I will have a chance to speak before influential world leaders and global thinkers on raising awareness and support for human rights, an advocacy I am passionate about," De Lima said in a statement.

De Lima assured the public that she will return to the country after her official travel.

"I hope my brief absence would provide a welcome relief and respite to my detractors and critics. I will keep them in mind though," she said.

The senator's name is being linked to the illegal drug trade inside the national penitentiary.
