Atty. Vitaliano Aguirre caught the eye of several senators as well as the photographers after he covered his ears when Senator Judge Miriam Defensor Santiago speak and lectures them of being unprepared.



Aguirre said it is normal court practice for prosecutors to withdraw or amend a complaint during a trial.


Atty.

Aguirre said that he do it purposely.
He also said that "Nasasaktan ang tenga ko"

Taylor Kitsch went to Indonesia

He added that in his 40 years of practice, it is the first time that he has seen a judge lecture lawyers. He said he could not object because he was not recognized by the court.

These is some part of their conversation

Santiago :  "Kung ayaw mo pakinggan, e di umalis ka sa korte,"

Aguirre : "Aalis na nga po sana ako e kaya lang..."

Santiago: "Granted! If that is in a formal motion, go ahead! Nanghahamon ka."
Senate President Enrile appealed that both side to be calm

Aguirre:  "Totoo namang shrill ang voice, nasasaktan ang tenga ko. Ang kuwan ko lamang ay kahit ang senador at mga judges at kami ay hamak lamang na prosecutor dito, ang importante po sa isang tao ay respeto. Kung nagde-demand ka ng respeto, dapat respetuhin mo din itong mga abogadong ito sapagakat yung human dignity wala pong katulad yan,"

Santiago:  "Now, he's lecturing me."

Enrile suspended the trial for awhile. And Aguirre walking out while Santiago talk to Atty. Tupas Jr.

Not a good move from the Prosecution Team.
