Following the heartbreaking news of Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago's Death, many notable personalities, including the senators paid tribute to honor all the sacrifices she has done for the country. According to his husband, Santiago died peacefully in her sleep.
Meanwhile, the President also expressed his condolences and sympathy for the late Iron Lay of Asia.

Santiago has also expressed her support for Duterte during the campaigns as well.
In a statement, the President said:
“We express our deepest sorrow over the passing of Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago.
Senator Santiago has left a sterling career in public office. She is best remembered as a graftbuster ‘eating death threats for breakfast” earning her the title The Iron Lady of Asia. A constitutionalist, she has always been an advocate for the rule of law.
Rest in peace, Madam Senator. May your legacy continue to guide this nation for many years to come.”
