Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago Impeachment 2012

quotable quotes from Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago

Santiago said she wanted to correct the “misimpression” by many people, including her colleagues, that the impeachment was either political or judicial in nature.

“It is both quasi judicial and quasi political, it is almost but not exactly like a political or judicial proceeding.”

“Huwag na tayo pa-epal dito,” (Let us not grandstand) Santiago said. “Justice delayed is justice denied.”

“Please don’t treat me as a mere observer. I am a judge in this proceeding! In any trial court, … you should not speak, you should not take any behavior at all unless with the consent of the presiding judge. Don’t drown me out by screaming in this courtroom! Only I can scream here and my fellow judges!”
