Miriam's Sister Slams VP Leni: "Robredo Should be Sanctioned by Courts for Commenting on a Pending Case"


The sister of the late Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago, who is also a veteran international lawyer, Atty. Paula Defensor-Knack slammed the Vice President of the Philippines for her unsolicited statements against the Judiciary.



According to Atty. Paula Knack, VP Leni Robredo should be sanctioned by the courts for commenting on a pending case after she claimed that the RTC Makati broke the law in issuing warrant of arrest with bail against Sen. Antonio Trillanes.



The veteran international lawyer also noted that the statement of VP Leni against the Judiciary "is not a comment on documents only, but on the impartiality of the judges and his finding on probable cause." Atty. Knack stated.

Atty. Knack slammed the Vice President for her statement against the Makati RTC as a blatant violation of the law and even called Robredo as an extremely stupid lawyer.

Miriam's sister also noted in a separate statement that how come the court broke the law as she was quoted as saying "Eh bakit binigyan pa ng hearing after the SC denial of the TRO at hindi inaresto kaagad? Magle-lecture ka pa sa judges? Pakinggan ka kaya? 2 courts pending ang kaso ni Trillanes sa RTC." Atty. Knack stated.



In a news report presented by GMA News, VP Leni Robredo was quoted as saying "Ang mga korte ang inaasahan nating maging matibay at patas na sandigan, lalo na sa laban para sa ating mga karapatan. Nabigo ang tiwalang ito sa utos ng Makati Regional Trial Court Branch 150 na arestuhin si Senator Trillanes, sa kabila ng malinaw na pagbigay sa kaniya ng amnestiya,” Robredo, a lawyer, said.

VP Leni also noted that "“Kung ang batas ay kayang baluktutin laban sa isang miyembro ng Senado, ano na lang ang posibleng gawin sa ating mga mas mahihirap na kababayan? Patuloy kaming naninindigan kasama ni Senator Trillanes, sa gitna ng panibagong panggigipit ng administrasyon sa mga kritiko nito,” she added.
