Duterte on Miriam's death: A senator who ate death threats for breakfast.

SHARE:

The president expressed his sympathies over the former senator's death.

On Thursday following the death of former Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, President Rodrigo Duterte paid tribute to the former during his speech in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Duterte spoke of Santiago's firm stand against corruption and her respect for the law.

“Senator Santiago has left a sterling career in public office. She is best remembered as a graftbuster ‘eating death threats for breakfast,’ earning her the Iron Lady of Asia,” he said.

“A constitutionalist, she has always been an advocate for the rule of law,” he added.

Duterte then hoped Santiago's hard work would serve as an inspiration and guide to Filipino citizens.

“Rest in peace, Madam Senator.  May your legacy continue to guide this nation for many years to come," Duterte said as he bid farewell.
