Miriam's Sister Lambasts Sen. Hontiveros for Not Allowing Kian's Witness to be Under PAO (Video)


International lawyer and political analyst Atty. Paula-Defensor-Knack, the sister of the late Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago lambasts Sen. Risa Hontiveros for not allowing Kian's witness to be under the custody of the Public Attorney's Office as they needed the witnesses' statements.


Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre already confirmed to the media that the DOJ will put all the witnesses and closed family members under the Witness Protection Program (WPP) of the DOJ. The Public Attorney's Office (PAO) is under the DOJ.

Watch the Video Report by ABS-CBN:



Sen. Risa Hontiveros on Sunday said that the witnesses for the slay of the 17-year-old Kian Lloyd Delos Santos were already under her custody and protection. The senator stated that "The protection provided to the family will be extended to the key witnesses who will help in bringing to justice the perpetrators of the extrajudicial killings of Kian Lloyd Delos Santos.

PAO Chief Atty. Persida Rueda-Acosta said on Monday that the case of Kian Delos Santos will be taken over by PAO. This was confirmed by Kian's father Saldy Delos Santos who stated that his family has decided that Acosta will serve as their official legal counsel.

Aside from PAO handling the case, the agency also released an official autopsy report about the alleged killing of Kian Delos Santos but there's some problems with the handling of the case because Sen. Hontiveros could not decide to turn-over her witnesses under the custody of the WPP.
