MANILA, Philippines — A complaint against Senate Majority Floor Leader Vicente Sotto III was filed Tuesday by bloggers and a group of professors before the Senate ethics committee regarding the alleged plagiarism he committed.

Sotto had allegedly used parts of a blog post of US blogger Sarah Pope without attribution in his speech during the controversial Reproductive Health Bill debates.

He had also been accused of using a quote from the late US Senator Robert Kennedy which he translated into Tagalog in another speech.

Kerry Kennedy, daughter of Senator Kennedy, demanded that Sotto make a public apology.

Sotto, when asked by reporters Monday about the demand, said “what for?”

Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile said in a separate interview that “[Senators] cannot be questioned anywhere for what we say inside this chamber. Not because we are a special breed but because that is the immunity given by the sovereign people so that we can speak on any subject under the sun,” Enrile told reporters.

Professors from the University of the Philippines, Ateneo De Manila University, and the De La Salle University, joined forces in the filing of the complaint.

Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, chairman of the ethics committee, said in another interview Monday that he was already in the process of finalizing the rules to ensure a fair hearing.

“It … is the prerogative of the citizens to file a complaint against a senator. As long as it falls within the rules of the ethics committee then we will hear it,” Cayetano said.

“Now, whether or not a particular act constitutes a violation or unethical behavior will have to fall under the definitions according to the rules and the consensus of the members. But I can assure everyone of a fair hearing with all of these issues at hand,” he said.

    Mr Sotto, it is not what you think of yourself but what the world thinks about you; Mr Enrile, not being  questioned in the senate does not make one correct. You may have all your rules in your favor, but the complaints of the original authors simply leave bad taste. Think of the filipino people specially those abroad.

  • Simon Ward

    Sen. Enrile: Immunity may mean that Sen. Sotto is not obligated to respond to questions under Philippine law. It does NOT mean that he “cannot be questioned”. Big difference.

  • jorgecapulejr

    Walang mangyayari dito. Makakapal ang mukha ng mga politiko natin. Anong kalokohan ang pinagsasabi ni Enrile na parliamentary immunity.. Kalokohan.

  • ztefertilizerscam9

    Let us also not forget about Tito Sotto’s involvement in the Pepsi Paloma and Guada Guarin 1982 rape scandal.

    Yes Mr. Senate President, you are immune from suit on your speeches but for God’s sake, senators of the land should be honest enough to say that an idea being spoken to is from somebody’s.

  • quirinomayer

    Does the Ethics Committee have jurisdiction over known clowns? 

    Could we shame the shameless?

    The appalling thing about this fellow who unfortunately bears the title of a senator of the Filipino people is that he treats clowning and dishing out corny jokes in a television show and legislative work at the same level. Imagine dismissing the demand of the heir of the respected world statesman he plagiarized for a public apology with a sassy “what for?”! This man does not have shame.

Not because we are a special breed but because that is the immunity given by the sovereign people so that we can speak on any subject under the sun,” Enrile told reporters.

    Plagiarism is defined in dictionaries as the
    “wrongful appropriation,” “close imitation,” or
    “purloining and publication” of another author’s
    “language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions,” and the representation
    of them as one’s own original work… (see wikipedia)…

    it is tantamount to  “stealing”…  if these senators (enrile & sotto)  thought they are immune to “steal anything under the sun”, then pinoys are in deep, deep trouble…

    Enrile must be nuts! Who says the Senators have full immunity! Its only in his dream. That is why there is what you call ETHICS. Yun nga lang lulusot si Sotto kasi now pa lang sinabi na ni Cayetano their ethics rules are not that clear. Actually its VERY CLEAR taht when it affects one of their colleagues, the rules becomes vague. But when its about other people…ITS MORE CLEAR than the SUN!

    Ganyan ang gobyerno natin!

    Kung sabagay naman, honest academicians end up working for dirty Senators. People who are good in school end up as staff, while those who were bad boys end up as Senators or millionaires. Who said life was fair?

    • IsipPinoy

       Just wondering kung yung staff ni Sen. Sotto came from those honest academicians you mentioned. Honest academicians would have advised the senator that there is a thing called plagiarism. I suspect his staff were recruited from Wanbol University.

  • arthur1410

    Being a senator is not an excuse to steal from anyone whether dignity, material or ideas. 

    Being a senator is not an excuse to trample upon the rights of others.

    Being a senator is not an excuse to do whatever he wishes to do at the expense of others.

    Sotto did all those moronic things in just one sweep, by an idiotic and arrogant question when a journalist cited that the daughter of a US senator whom he plagiarized wanted him to apologize – “For what?”. 

    My Gosh. what kind of a senator is sotto? Does he think he is still in Eat bulaga clowning his way to elicit laughter and derision at the same time? 

    Is our senate that hopeless? Even this old enrile is showing our senate is badly occupied by dishonorable people when he justified sotto’s action. wow, when he rewrote our history by changing the facts in his biodata, that confirms that indeed, we have a hopeless senate. 
    Time for the senate to remove one of the worst senator in the history of that institution. 

    Sotto’s “For what?” is similar to another senator who few decades ago said-“What are we in power for?” Another case of arrogance of supposedly educated and dignified senator.
     
    sotto  is clueless about decency and right manners and what a senator should do and what should not do.
    In short, sotto is obob na ang kapal pa. palibhasa, graduate ng wanbol U. bwset.

    • IsipPinoy

       Ayan ang napapala ng nagmamagaling pag nabibisto. Ewan ko kung pinagaralan nila Sen Sotto ang pagkatao ni Sen. Robert Kennedy bago nila kinopya ang kanyang speech. Si Sen. Kennedy ay miyembro ng isang pamilya ng mga LIBERAL Democrats. Ang ibig lang sabihin nyan sila ay pabor sa gay rights, family planning, women’s equality rights, racial equality, labor rights, helping the poor, etc. Yan ang mga adhikain ni Sen. Kennedy. Isang paglapastangan sa alaala ng yumaong Sen. Kennedy ang pag gamit sa  portion ng kanyang speech to support Tito Sottos opposition to RH bill, a program that’s in line sa mga adhikain ni Sen. Kennedy.

  • Andres_Bagumbayan

Kung kasalanan at may moral na pananagutan ang pang-aagaw ng lupa, ganoon din ang plagiarism. Kaya may basehan ang mga taong yun na mag-reklamo.

    Academic freedom is not a defense for Sotto. Exactly academic rules prohibit plagiarism. Sotto can only say “I wnte to show my worldwide knowledge” and even that should be declared as not out of his brain.

  • jbadge

    Yes, as a Senator, he enjoys certain privileges in his speeches within the chamber. By the same token, people look up to Senators as individuals who possess certain traits, such as competency, honesty, dignity, and even humility. If Sotto does not acknowledge that he plagiarized, he is either incompetent or ignorant for failing to recognize such known phrases. He could also be perceived as someone who does not possess an intellect worthy of his position. Either way, there really is no upside for Sotto to be indignant. It would be a lot easier for him to accept that he erred and then go on with his business.

  • Ricgwapo

    As one of the highest representatives of the country, a senator has to act with the highest degree of ethics and manner befitting that position. If that is the argument of Sen. Sotto, then his level of ethical behavior is so low that make it very embarrassing for the Senate, as a whole, to even support such behavior.

    Shall lawmakers keep on quoting other people’s verses, esp. the popular one, even translated into local dialects, without quoting the sources of that verses.

    I don’t want to be led by government officials esp. lawmakers who are only good at copying others’ popular verses, expressions of quotations.

    Nakakahiya ito! 

    If Sen. Sotto is not ashamed of plagiarism, I am as a citizen of the Republic of the Philippines. Come one Sen. Sotto, have some originality, and if you can’t please acknowledge the sources. You can’t hide being a Senator or under our Constitution. 

    Even thesis dissertation needs to quote the source to avoid plagiarism, so much so as when one speak to the nation on certain issues or things that affect the lives of the majority of the people.

    Be sensible Sen. Sotto. I have the feeling that you have embarrassed the Filipino people, and if you don’t have that feeling, you need to reflect who and what kind of representation you are making on behalf of the Filipino people.

    We don’t want fake or borrowed quotations that are being represented as one’s elocution to make it strong statements, without quoting the original source. That is plain plagiarism and if that is not well understood by Sen. Sotto and some of those in the Senate, then it is time for the people of this country to clean up the Senate of people of high repute, and not those that embarrass that institution.

    to alner
    Senators and other higher ranks like judges in RP are entitled to “your honor” but not “your honest”.
    Honor comes from honorable, means here maybe honorarium or salary. The higher
    the honorarium, the more honorable. It has nothing to do ith honesty.
    Like
    a president is entitled to “your excellency”, no matter how excellent
    or lousy he may be. Funny that in RP the same title is given to the main
    mouthpiece of the president, very unique since all secretaries are just
    “honors”.

      the title “your honor” applies to lawmakers only when they act as senator-judges. the title is really reserved for justices and mayors

    Being a lawyer yourself, Mr. Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, you must know the aforementioned phrase very well.

    It is the sovereign people of this country who are filing a complaint against one of their elected officials. Senator Sotto cannot hide behind immmunity which only the “sovereign people” can give or take back. That immunity is therefore not absolute.

  • Fulpol

    after Cayetano finished his ethical inquiry, I doubt if Sen. Sotto will not  file a counter to the group who filed the complaint…

    by intention and being fair, I think Sen. Sotto might file a libel suit against the professors of UP, AdMU and DLSU.

    1. there is no copyright infringement
    2. the author like Sarah Pope will also take the pill because she also plagiarized
    3. the plagiarized text intended to inform the public, a serious issue of RH Bll, not for personal gain.

    as one legal mind says, “plagiarism is not in itself illegal, it is only illegal if it also breaches an established legal right, such as copyright, or offends against the law of misrepresentation or other legal rules.”

    I expect a battle in the near future, when Sen Sotto will file a libel case.

      That most famous speech of The Late Sen Robert Kennedy was addressed to the world for peace particularly to Eastern Europe,  Berlin Wall and growing problems of Africa. This was plagiarized by this idiot Philippine senator by emphasizing it with the use and ill effects of contraceptives. Now I ask you Mr. Polpol, what can you say about what Ms. Kerry Kennedy feel about this diversion of the noble ideas of the speech into condoms and contraceptives by this stupid guy Sotto? If you are Ms. Kerry Kennedy, do you feel happy about it? 

      • Fulpol

        did Sotto gain something from using the translated speech of Kennedy?

        if the words were taken out of context, that is wrong. because the words of Kennedy is universal..

        the daughter of Kennedy should be flattered because the speech of her father was used for different context, become universal, become classic.

    You double check some privileges speeches of politicians (Congressmen and Senators) and you will read a lot of copied materials without proper acknowledgement. You read Sen. Miriam Santiago’s privilege speech about RH and you will read some plagiarized statements and no one seemed to question her.

    It appeared Sarah Pope (who accused Sen. Tito Sotto as plagiarist) copied her materials from a certain medical journal without attributing her source. Sarah Pope is the original plagiarist. 

    Those bloggers, in connivance with politicians (who are like crocodiles whose mouth are wide open for billions of RH budget), foreign medicine manufacturers, US and United Nations, pro RH groups are derailing the real issue by focusing on plagiarism, a diversionary tactic.

    Sen. Tito Sotto has parliamentary immunity, thus, the legal and ethical complaints will not prosper.

    • Karabukov

      You’re wrong to defend Senator Sotto on his proven plagiarism Isidro. You – and Senator Sotto the more so – do no justice to his cause by denying the undeniable. All Senator Sotto had to do was apologize for his plagiarism – great men have done so and moved on to more successful endeavors – and he can go on to fight for his cause. But by denying something that he is so blatantly obviously guilty of, he will never leave this stupid issue and that’s what he will always be known for, perhaps his whole life. The sooner he gets it the surer he gets over it.

      The funny thing is, he can’t apologize for it, because he denies having done it, because he doesn’t know what it is he did. He needs to go back to Vocabulary 101.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3ZJRMG5UT3RDG7SXZIJHKCF7QE Camila

        Kaya. mga One sided kase eh, sarado na ang utak sa mga sinasabe ni Sen Sotto.

      Batikos ng batikos nde nmn nakakatulong sa problema ang mga taong umuusig kay Sen. Sotto sana kung nakakatulong sila. Kawawa naman walang magawa sa buhay.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3ZJRMG5UT3RDG7SXZIJHKCF7QE Camila

      Agree. Super duper naman magmalinis yung mga tao, especially yung mga patagong pinapabagsak sya.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/MI5N6JIP2HCC2YL5KYZBVGZHGM Vincent

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/LY4M3DBFTLKTZYQYCF5O46ADYA Mau

      tama tama kahit na anong uri pa ng pang huhusga ang isulong nila kay Sotto wala rin silang magagawa. bagkus lalo lang silang napipikon sa mga ginagawa nila dahil wala e. wala na silang magagawa tungkol sa issue na to,

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/ADVBD7KFCC5NTXH52PA5YBCZRE Jaja

      tama,.at kung may plagiarism man dati pa e di sana marami ng nakulong..uso kaya yan sa mga students.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3ZJRMG5UT3RDG7SXZIJHKCF7QE Camila

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/PQST6VXXSB5UEN6NPCGK6HUXKA Reps

    Against kayo sa plagiarism eh samantalang di nyo nga alam ibig sabihin nyan. Kung talagang alam nyo ang meaning ng plagiarism ibig sabhin alam nyo din na di ng plagiarist si Senator Sotto.
