Miriam's Sister Criticizes & Lectured Ombudsman Morales for Allegations Against Pres. Duterte


International lawyer and sister of the late Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago, Atty. Paula Santiago-Knack criticized the Office of the Ombudsman particularly its head, Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales who made headlines earlier for criticizing Pres. Duterte.


In an interview with Japanese media giant NHK World, Ombudsman Conchita Morales has accused Pres. Duterte of "goading people to kill people," with the President's tough rhetoric against drug pushers and losers.

According to Ombudsman Morales in an interview with NHK World, the repeated public calls of Duterte to kill drug personalities is "not acceptable" since her office is also investigating the alleged Extra Judicial Killlings (EJK).

Atty. Paula Knack on her part criticized and lectured Ombudsman Morales as she noted that under the Philippine Constitution, the Office of the Ombudsman is independent. It is supposed to be neutral.


Miriam's sister also revealed that it was Ombudsman Morales who also allegedly delivered hearsay evidence in Chief Justice Corona's trial according to Sen. Miriam. The European-based lawyer also accused Ombudsman Morales of sitting on massive plunder cases in her office and prosecutes only helpless small court.

Here's the Complete Statement of Atty. Paula Knack:

CONCHEATA STRIKES AGAIN ! : Under the Constitution, the Office of the Ombudsman is independent. It is supposed to be neutral. Here is Concheata Morales AGAIN ! The one who delivered hearsay evidence in Corona's trial, accdg. to Sen. Miriam ! And who SITS on massive plunder cases in her office and prosecutes only helpless small people. She refuses to prosecute Aquino and his Cabinet and here she is - high and mighty again ! How fair is that ?!
