  • Highlights
    - Santiago asked Napoles to spill the beans before Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile, among the respondents in the plunder complaint, orders for her assassination. (Enrile is Santiago's known rival.)
    - Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago, presiding over the cross-examination, taught Napoles to say "I invoke my right against self-incrimination" instead of answering "I don't know."
    - Santiago: Is it true that you are close to a certain Catholic congregation? Are you familiar with the Ten Commandments? Are you familiar with the commandment: You shall not steal? Are you familiar with the commandment: You should not tell a lie? And still, with the plunder case against you, you remain and consider yourself to be a devout Catholic? (Napoles says she is aware of the commandment but did not welcome Santiago's questions.)
