  • Miriam Defensor Santiago was elected in December 2011 as a Judge of the International Criminal Court. She had to waive the post because of chronic fatigue syndrome, which was later found to be lung cancer. She continues to be a member of the 24-person Senate of the Philippines. She is a lawyer, former trial judge, and professor of constitutional and international law. She was the youngest judge of the Regional Trial Court in Manila during the 1983-1987 judicial reorganization.
