Miriam targets Cabinet men who snubbed probe
MANILA, Philippines - Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago said on Monday she will snub sessions this week to show her resentment towards colleagues who did the same during the probe she initiated against former Interior and Local Government Undersecretary Rico Puno.
She warned, however, that they should expect her to attend if the Committee on Appointments will tackle the nomination of Transport chief Mar Roxas as the new Interior and Local Government secretary.
“If a Cabinet member who snubs my hearing is presented for confirmation this Wednesday, I will attend the confirmation hearing to cast a veto, to fulfill my promise that I shall veto all cabinet members who were invited, but snubbed me,” she said.
