Bam on Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago's passing
(Transcript of media interview)

Sa unang pagpasok namin, akala mo matapang, masungit but in fact, she was very gracious, very generous with her words of wisdom and her kind words.

We have really lost someone who made a dent in our history. Someone na hindi makakalimutan ng tao.

For me, having served with her for a few years, isa siyang tao na mapagbigay sa kanyang oras at sa kanyang kaalaman.

We will miss her and the country will miss her as well.

I think she was never not important. (She was always important.) Until the end, she was still very popular and a lot of people would listen to her.

Hindi naman iyon nawala sa kanya. From the time that she served in government, in the executive department, all the way to the legislative department, palagay ko never naman siya nawala in that sense. She's always someone that people look up to.

During the Mamasapano hearings, the Napoles hearings, iyong times na mabibigat sa Senado in the 16th Congress, she always made a point to come out and say something, lalo na sa mga panahong kinailangan ang boses niya.
