Santiago, who has been suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome, confirmed in a letter sent to Senate Majority leader Allan Peter Cayetano her earlier request for time to deliver a privileged speech as response to Enrile’s speech last week.

“I am sick and have energy only for two hours, after which I am attacked by chronic fatigue syndrome,” she said in her letter.

She added that she will reply to the personal insults hurled against her by Enrile, who denied Santiago’s claims that he is the brains of the pork barrel scam and that he is “murderous.” Enrile said that the accusations accusations were the work of “a distorted, degraded, and deranged mind”.

Enrile said that he is not bothered with Santiago’s upcoming speech.

“Ok lang yung tawagin niya akong demonyo, barumbado, tawagin niya akong sinungaling o tawagin niya akong satanas, (I don’t care is she calls me a demon, a thug, a liar or even Satan),” he told reporters.

The minority leader said he will be present when Santiago delivers her speech. “I will stay in my seat and listen to her, she will have all the time. But I cannot say yet if I’m going to interpelate,” he said.

    Very good idea for Lady Senator Defensor to deliver her privileged speech in the senate floor for the he nation to hear both side of the issues of corruption in the Philippines politics.
