Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago took to Twitter Thursday afternoon to vent her annoyance at people who are pressuring her to resign from her post.
Elected as a judge in the International Criminal Court (ICC) based in The Hague, Netherlands in December last year, Santiago has yet to assume her seat in the ICC.
She said last week, "I have no discretion on when I should report to the ICC. This is why I cannot resign from the Senate until the ICC indicates that I should do so."
"I will simply have to wait until the ICC Presidency makes a decision on whether I should report to the Appeals Chamber, which is considered the most prestigious of the three chambers of the ICC."
Santiago's term as Senator ends in 2016. Some parties seem to want her out of the job immediately, however.
