Respect Miriam’s right to privacy
Bersyon sa Filipino.
Senator Bongbong Marcos defended the privacy of non-disclosure of the medical records of Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago during his guesting this morning at Unang Hirit with Arnold Clavio and Rhea Santos.
Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos, Jr. today said Sen. Miriam Santiago’s right to privacy should be respected.
Earlier, Santiago invoked her right to privacy in rejecting a doctor’s request to release her medical records. Dr. Sylvia Estrada Claudio said the lady senator should bare such records to prove she is fit for the presidency.
“Ako, pagka sinabi niya na kaya niya ang mangampanya, na magaling na siya, edi sino pa ba paniniwalaan ko kung hindi si Senator Miriam,” said Marcos in an interview at GMA-7’s morning show “Unang Hirit”.
Before filing her certificate of candidacy to run as President in the 2016 elections Santiago declared that she had won her bout with cancer.
Santiago later named Sen. Marcos as her choice for vice presidential running mate.
According to Marcos talks are still on-going between his camp and Santiago to discuss the details of their alliance.
“Mabuti naman ang takbo ng usapan namin dahil ang ginagawa namin ay we are forming a loose coalition sa aming mga kampo,” said Marcos.
