Manila (Philippine Daily Inquirer/ANN) 1Philippine senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, a long-time academic in the field of law, doesn't buy Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III's defense that speaking in Filipino gets him off the hook from charges he plagiarized English passages from a speech by the late US Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. 2"I don't accept that because as I've said in the academe, whether you translate or not, whether you interpret or not, it makes no difference. 3You have to attribute," Santiago said in a news conference following a speaking engagement on Saturday. 4"In this event, the Sotto event, he can be allowed a certain freedom, although I wish that he would adopt the general attitude that it's always best to attribute whether it's specific or general," she said. 5Sotto once again received criticism last week for plagiarism after his turno en contra against the reproductive health (RH) bill contained a Filipino translation of passages from a speech the late Kennedy delivered in 1966. 6The alleged plagiarism was posted on Twitter shortly after Sotto's speech. 8On the RH bill-the subject of Sotto's supposedly plagiarized speeches, Santiago challenged her colleagues to just put the measure to a vote. 9"Stop all dilatory tactics. Stop the filibuster," Santiago said. 10"Let us come to a vote. 11I challenge my colleagues in the Senate and even in the House: Let us come to a formal vote on the RH bill itself," said Santiago, one of the authors of the RH bill.
