Miriam's Sister Lambasts Raissa Robles & Jim Paredes for ICC Statements

International lawyer and the sister of the late Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, Atty. Paula Defensor-Knack lambasts Pro-Yellow supporters Raissa Robles and Jim Paredes for their unsolicited statements regarding the impending withdrawal of the Philippines from the International Criminal Court.


According to Atty. Paula Knack, if Robles and Paredes were not close to the President they should not speak for him and even called them idiots. She also advised that if they are not experts in International Criminal Law, they should not render legal opinions on criminal law treaties.

The veteran lawyer and Miriam's sister explained that it is extremely difficult to convict with a sitting head of state and the Philippines complied with its obligations under the Rome Statute by filing cases against erring law enforcement officials under the complimentarity principle.



Atty. Knack noted that withdrawal is as much as right as joining is, that's the reason why there are provisions for withdrawal in the Rome Stature itself. The international lawyer also added that the President's critics should stop saying about panic because Pres. Duterte is not the type who panics at all.

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

VIRAL !!.........Naku, nagsilabasan na mga pseudo-experts sa Rome Statute at Intl. Criminal Law. Kagagahan at kagaguhan !

FACT : It is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to convict a sitting head of state and the PH complied with its obligations under the Rome Statute by filing cases against erring law enforcement officials under the complementarity principle. It is left with no option. Withdrawal is as much a right as joining is. Thats why there are provisions for withdrawal IN THE ROME STATUTE ITSELF.

So stop saying about panic because PRRD is not the type who panics AT ALL. You are deluding yourselves. The country is exercising its RIGHT UNDER THE ROME STATUTE. Your posts are, as usual, useless and uninformed.
