MANILA — For Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, the senate probe on the Mamasapano incident were full of lies.
Through a speech delivered during a leadership forum in Quezon City on Wednesday, Santiago describe the senate as a “bunch of liars.”
“Sari-saring sinungaling. Gusto pa akong i-impress…,” she said.
(A bunch of liars. They just wanted to impress me.)
Santiago attended one of the hearings on the senate probe of the Mamasapano incident which killed 44 PNP-SAF commandos.
The senator was later asked during a press conference who she was referring as liars during the hearings. She only said, “Well, I will not have to identify personally but it was an orgy of truth twisting.”
“Many were not telling the whole truth. You know if you tell half a lie, or half the truth that’s no longer the truth. They were telling the truth but from their point of view…” she pointed out.
