ENRILE: Soon to be 88, oozing with diligence and stamina

Older and definitely wiser.  This best describes the leading lights in the current trial to impeach Chief Justice Renato Corona.

At day’s end, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, soon-to-be 88, holes up in his study at his Makati residence to contemplate the trial proceedings.

On days when key issues are raised at the trial—such as whether to admit evidence on the CJ’s alleged illegally acquired wealth—Enrile says he stays up till the wee hours, weighing the options according to the law.

In a law office somewhere in Salcedo Village, his contemporary, retired Justice Serafin Cuevas, 83, puts off going home to reread the law, review the documents and plan legal strategy, all in preparation for the next day’s trial.

“Every night I never fail to check on things because I haven’t been teaching in a long time,” he told the Inquirer in an interview Saturday night.  “It’s not every day that there’s an impeachment case. I have to dig deeper into the wisdom of the ages.”

Such is the strict discipline Enrile and Cuevas still impose upon themselves, more than half a century after graduating from the University of the Philippines College of Law.

They may look frail and slower now, but their participation in the trial, not to mention their exchanges, have kept the other judges and lawyers on their toes, and have proved riveting to the onsite audience and those following the proceedings on media.

“People tell me that we both study, that we’re always correct when it comes to the law,” said Cuevas. “His thinking and my thinking probably jive on many occasions because we are both litigators.”

Diligence and stamina

Sen. Gregorio Honasan, to whom Enrile has been a father figure, attested to the old man’s diligence in the Corona trial. There had been times, he said, when Enrile would sleep at 2 a.m. then wake up three hours later.

“You can tell what the man is made of,” Honasan said. “He agonizes over issues in the impeachment trial. He studies and prays a lot to understand the issues.”

Sen. Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada, the Senate President Pro Tempore, said many of his colleagues were concerned about Enrile’s health given the rigors of the proceedings.

Trial days are from Monday to Thursday, beginning at 2 p.m. and with no fixed time of adjournment. Unlike other senators who could take a break anytime, Enrile has to stay at the rostrum and traffic the proceedings.

Senators’ concern

“That’s our concern. We don’t want him to tire. We need him to be 100 percent throughout the trial,” said Estrada, who helps “preserve” Enrile for the afternoon’s trial by presiding over the legislative session in the morning.

“No one can handle the job better than he does,” added Estrada.

Save for a little hearing difficulty and an eye problem, Enrile, who is turning 88 on Valentine’s Day, is ready for the long haul, agreed both Honasan and Estrada.

Cuevas, on the other hand, is on maintenance drugs for his diabetes.  But other than that, he is a tough one.

He stands at the podium for at least a couple of hours during trial, trying to keep the prosecution at bay.  Most of the time, he has been successful, based on the number of times Enrile has sustained his objections and prosecutors have had to “reform” their questions to witnesses.

Free lectures

CUEVAS: At 83, still digging deeper into the wisdom of the ages

Such exchanges have served as “free lectures” for the young lawyers involved in the trial and those who have been following the proceedings.

“I get paid P10,000 per lecture. You guys should be thankful because I’m giving it for free (at the trial),” Cuevas said during the interview.  He might have said it in jest, but it’s a point well made.

‘Shining stars’

Lawyer Florin Hilbay, Constitution and philosophy professor at the UP Law Center, described Enrile and Cuevas as “amazing” when asked to assess the performance of the impeachment trial participants.  Hilbay was attending the forum “Reflections after Week 1 of the Latest Political Novela: Impeaching the Chief Justice,” which was sponsored by the National College of Public Administration and Government.

“They are senior citizens yet they are the shining stars of the show,” Hilbay said.  “Enrile is extremely sharp as presiding chair, while Cuevas sets the pace and tone of the trial.”

He also said lawyers watching the trial could not help but be astounded by Enrile’s knowledge of tax provisions, citing them as if it is something he does all the time.  He gave Cuevas extra points for witticism.

Despite positive reviews of  his performance so far in the trial, Cuevas claimed no mastery of the impeachment proceedings, this despite having defended former President Joseph Estrada in the famous and rigorous impeachment trial in 2000 that has gone on record as having spawned Edsa II.

Cuevas said he was determined to finish the job even if he admitted getting tired at different stretches during the trial.

To keep fit, he sets aside at least 30 minutes each morning to jog around his sprawling property in Quezon City. After breakfast of two soft-boiled eggs and a glass of milk, he is ready to go.

Specialized in taxation

Though younger, Cuevas finished law ahead of Enrile, but the latter passed the bar at No. 11 the following year with a 91.72 percent general average and a “perfect score in Commercial Law.”

Despite being contemporaries, the two hardly met in the courtroom, owing to the type of cases they sought to handle.

Enrile specialized in taxation, having earned his master’s degree in international taxation at the Harvard Law School in 1955.

Cuevas got his feet wet right away in litigation and won his first big case as a fresh grad in 1953.

Substituting for his mentor Pepe Africa, the young Cuevas found himself defending a construction worker accused of homicide.

Rookie Cuevas scares

The late Judge Bienvenido Tan, who was known as a “terror” among the magistrates in Manila, heard the case and denied the motion to postpone even before Cuevas could finish his sentence.

Rookie Cuevas later asked the clerk of court to schedule the case for the last-time slot “so when the judge gives me a dressing down, no one else would see it.”

As it turned out, he had no reason to worry. The young lawyer shone during the trial and succeeded in having the case dismissed.  His happy boss promptly gave him a P100 raise, quite a whopper considering his monthly salary had only been P150.

“I’ve been trained for antagonistic conditions,” said Cuevas, who went on to become a fiscal prosecutor for nearly 20 years, a judge, and later an associate justice of the Supreme Court.

Frowns on Santiago’s tirade

In the current Corona impeachment trial, the man has been generally polite with his counterparts from the prosecution, whose years of law practice are easily dwarfed by his own.

Cuevas said he sympathized with prosecutors whenever they got scolded during the televised trial. He said he particularly felt bad when Tupas and private counsel Arthur Lim were castigated by a fuming Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago on separate occasions last week.

“I could not affix my stamp of approval on that kind of an actuation,” he said. “Para bang hiniya mo ’yung mga tao eh naghahanap-buhay yan. Masasabi mo naman nang maayos. (That amounted to embarrassing a man who was only trying to make a living. What was said could have been said nicely.)”

Comparisons

Compared to Estrada’s impeachment trial, he said public opinion was not as heavily against Corona.

“It’s good that the Chief Justice is a very religious man,” he said, adding that Corona has no reputation for being a womanizer or a drunk.

And unlike in his previous impeachment experience, Cuevas seems to have gained a few fans of his own this time, judging by people from all walks of life who express their admiration for him outside the trial venue.

But the retired justice said he wasn’t losing focus on the job ahead, which is to prove Corona’s innocence.

“We might be lulled into a false sense of security that we are winning but lose when the voting comes. That’s what we are trying to avoid,” he said. With a report from Nancy C. Carvajal

  • Saint Luci

    I want Corona jailed if he is truly proven guilty… of course in the proper process and as per the rule of Law.

    But you have to give credit to Cuevas for a real brilliant performance.

    Naiinis lang ako sa mga kababayan nating pati si Cuevas pinagbubuntunan ng galit kagaya ng galit nila kay Corona at GMA. Naghahanap buhay lang siya kagaya nating lahat. May iba siyang pananaw at kelangan nating respetuhin yun.

    Kung sa palagay niyo walang moralided si Cuevas dahil sa pagpanig niya kay Corona, palagay niyo ba may moralidad din kayo kung saka-sakaling si Noynoy naman ang may (ALLEGEDLY) ginawang anumalya?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JHYGNXUWU6AG54XRDATEXPITSY susan

      bat naman napunta ke Noynoy ang topic mo? pilit bang ipasok name ni Noynoy.

      • Saint Luci

        Because these superstars won’t show how superstar they are if there is no impeachment. And who is the mastermind of the impeachment? Siyempre si Noynoy. Ganti niya yan sa SC for taking away his precious Hacienda… “my precious”

    • jurbinsky77

      What do expect as my answer if your question is hypothetical?

      Sanay na sanay tayo sa kuwentong palengke.

      I was a supporter of Gloria Arroyo, being the daughter of  President Diosdado Macapagal and once a classmate of Bill Clinton. But unlike others, I can only be with her if she is in the right path. So if I find Noynoy as evil as Gloria or Marcos, then I withdraw my support for him.Nang makita ng lalaki na may sungay ang hari, hindi niya ito ikinuwento sa kanyang asawa o kanyang kaibigan. Humukay siya sa lupa at sumigaw na “may sungay ang hari!”. At tumubo ang ang puno ng kawayan.

  • TinimbangNgunitKulang

    What we need are not people who are brilliant with the laws but people who are enlightened enough to know what is right. Kudos to Cuevas for stating that Miriam went over the boundaries of decency. What sick satisfaction does she get from insulting her countrymen? She belongs in a mental institution.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/FHUSNIZU4ALDEMZIMO66MIUQ7Y Bahia

      To know what is right means you have to be brilliant. Brilliance doesn’t mean you are top of the bar, received numerous citations, etc. Brilliance as a lawyer means you have performed your task based on the existing laws.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JHYGNXUWU6AG54XRDATEXPITSY susan

    i think atty cuevas has a style. he will object to anything he could possibly object to against the prosecution, tapos he will hope that enrile will side with him (objection sustained). sayang nga naman kasi di ba, baka kumagat si enrile, eh di nakapuntos si cuevas. at nadelay pa ng ilang segundo or minuto ang proceedings. hehehe.

    but am glad on what he said, in fairness, about santiago. enrile should put santiago in her place next time she bawls out again at anyone in the proceedings. pwede naman magsalita ng maayos si santiago. di nya kelangan manigaw at manghiya. kapwa professionals naman ang kausap nya.

    stop singing praises it is too early to tell. the filipino people will make the final verdict not this newspaper and so called experts. we have been ignoring the people’s desire in this process as a result of our culture of entitlement and recipient of a culture of impunity by those who will do any thing to take an advantage available to them to diminish our system of governance. we need to change this. the unfinish business of EDSA are still continuing and this impeachment trial has again exposed its weakness and faults. filipinos are beginning to realize their power and can make things change. even the bishops of the church are worried by the sudden awarenes of our people of their rights and assertiveness to determined their future. this are good signs for our democracy to rid ourselves of pretenders and opportunities and can not focus on solving our immediate concerns which are to live life with decent jobs and in a decent neighborhood

        There are two set of judges in this impeachment trial. Count three of you consider the most omnipotent Being. One is the senator-judges. The other is the Filipino people, majority of whom exercise their right of suffrage every election year.

      • pangitbudhiko

        but, The filipino people are not exercising their right to vote. Instead they are selling their rights to vote for a measly sum of a couple of hundred pesos. The equation is not right here.

    When you have Marcos’ son, two former failed coup plotters, an ex-police chief once accused of murder, action movie stars, a comedian, and businessmen moonlighting as Senators, it is certain that Enrile, a dictator’s former defence minister with a law degree background would stand out.
    We need Senators with impeccable backgrounds to push the envelope of knowledge and ability in the senate. If we keep on using Enrile as the standard, the Philippines would certainly spiral on a downhill trajectory towards the dump.
    Don’t forget Enrile is an expert chameleon, a multi-faced politician who would not hesitate to change his political leanings to protect his own interests and not to protect the interests of the people. Learn from Marcos’ martial law years he fully supported and then withdrew from once he knew Marcos’ time was up.

    • jurbinsky77

      Very good observation.

    • JK1000

      VERY WELL SAID , Make no mistake ! Enrile was the Chief Architec of the brutal Marcos Martial Law rule that resulted in the killings,kidnapping,salvaging,imprisonment thousands of our kababayans who only stood up against the brutal Marcos government.  Also, Enrile was also linked to many Coup attempts led by his boy Honasan during the Cory Aquino government. And during the early years of GMA government. Good thing they didn’t succed grabbing the power. It shows we still have a lot good officers and soldiers in the AFP.

    • pulungdagal

      a very sage and precise observation.

  • jurbinsky77

    I can only look up to a lawyer or an individual for that matter, if he can, when circumstance demands it, to do battle against the evil. How should a lawyer be measured against some subjective benchmarks?

    If I go along with the writer of this article and with the opinions of many of the posters here, the best defense counsel  in the country is Seigfrid Fortun. 

    In the impeachment case, the defense team or Atty Cuevas could not prevent the prosecution in portraying that Renato Corona is dishonest. It has been established in the 4th day of the prosecution. 

    In the case of Mindanao massacre, as of this writing, the proceeding can be characterized as moribund. If that situation can be attributed to the defense counsel, then Fortun is superior to Cuevas.

    Since betrayal of public trust is another bone of contention, additional evidences and testimonies should be allowed by the impeachment court. That will lead to, without saying it, that the respondent Renato Corona has amassed wealth beyond his means. In 7 years he was able to purchase properties that even a billionaire would be cautious to do. He acted like a “nouveau riche”.

    A dishonest person is a cheat. He cheated in his declaration in SALN, he deliberately made himself under the category of being an alpha list taxpayer because he could not show any additional means of income. However, during a short period of time, he was able to purchase expensive properties.

    With regards to Miriam Santiago, she should learn how to participate in a chamber that requires mutual respect. I am not amused by her antics, her show of outright irritation to Dinky Soliman because she is a founding member of Black and White movement. Only evil and the stupid would be mad upon hearing that the movement starts their activities by praying and asking guidance from God.

    Miriam should not allow her meanness to dominate the impeachment court. If Miriam faces someone who has been against her relative or friends, then she takes the opportunity to bully the person with her nastiness, Atty Tupas relatives were against Miriam Defensor’s brother, Dinky Soliman quit Arroyo’s cabinet subsequent to “Hello Garci” controversy. I wonder if Miriam voted in favor of Dinky Soliman in Arroyo’s cabinet.

    However you slice it, Miriam is a pitbull in the leash of Gloria Arroyo and all her minions, like Renato Corona. Try reviewing what Miriam has to say just few months ago in the matter of Gloria Arroyo and few weeks ago in the matter of Renato Corona.

    If Miriam froths in her mouth, it means that she is in front of a person whom she has an ax to grind.

    Folks, I want the truth. If you cannot handle the truth, then join these 3 individuals who think very highly of themselves. Let them not “open the second envelop”, in fact the country could have been cursed because of your choice to side with evil-doers. Asked yourself if you don’t deserve a President who aims for the best of all well-meaning Filipinos. Asked yourself if the hairline is more important criterion than what comes out from the heart. Until I have a single relative or friend who live with you in the country that everyone should call our own, I will continue to involve myself in your affairs of government. But when the my family’s diaspora is completed, then I will have my silent oath to this country that takes care of my immediate family, that “I will love her from now until forever”.

    • makulot

      It seems that you know something about law and your tone of argument is too biased to not know where you’re coming from.

      Comparing Cuevas w/ Fortun is just like comparing apples & oranges. Fortun is lawyering for criminal action that took place while Cuevas is lawyering for a person’s integrity in defiance of the government’s by hook or by crook effort to get rid of CJ Corona. They are two different bananas.

      If you’re trying or studying law & want to be one of them or just want to be bystander, still you have to consider to conceal your emotion, be practical and it should ruled by what knowledge you gained to weigh things so as to dampen the emotional tantrums & outburst.

      Be calm and be guided by the wisdom and you’ll be enlightened. This is a forum where the bloggers are fed with ideas and facts coming from the observation of the writer of the article and out of that facts we can weigh the formation of the subjects (as lawyers) rather than what they are representing for. They are just doing their job as mandated on their profession. They are professional trying to perform what they have practiced for a long time based on what they have gained by studying hard during in college.

      • jurbinsky77

        our response to my comment is way off line. d not to me.Maybe you intended to someone else rather than me.

        Howbeit irrelevant your comment on my comment, I am acknowledging your right to do so. But for you to assert that “…hook or by crook effort to get rid of Corona”, that notion completely preclude me to engage further even in a light banter. 

        apples and oranges, then 2 different kinds of bananas..completely lost me.
         

  • Belekoy

    We disagree with your kind angle in your write-up of Enrile, the trial’s presiding officer. You could have asked him why he did not stop Senator-judge Santiago when she was disrespecting, insulting and belittling a 42-year lawyer. Is it because Enrile is scared that once he stops Santiago from her “boorish” act, she might bring Enrile to Hague Switzerland once she reports for work as an ICC judge-elect?

    • Belekoy

      We find Tupas to be credible and lucid, truly a genuine emerging hero of this new Philippines under President Aquino. Your characterization of him is therefore flawed and full of bias. We find his request for the court to be “flexible” is one of the most reasonable legal requests yet, since the defense and even the presiding officer, who seems to be leaning towards obstructing the search for the truth, are always blocking any and all efforts by the prosecution to present their arguments and hence their stand against the accused CJ Corona. They want this impeachment trial to be just any other criminal trial and therefore, technicalities and all kinds of procedures and due processes are invoked. This is just mind-boggling.

    One should doubt, and consider the possibility that Enrile, just by his association with Arroyo’s  Lackey Honasan, will betray the trust of the Philippine People and favor acquitting Corona. This must Not be allowed to happen. If Enrile allows this to happen, He will exemplify the corrupt cronyism that has kept the Philippines a third world nation with all the superficial ostentatious trappings of the corrupt. If Enrile wishes to be remembered as a true Patriot, and a Civil Servant who made a positive difference to the people and Nation, he will see the obvious facts presented to him in the Court of Law, and dispense justice as the People expect him to do. To face God and his conscience with Peace or Damnation will be a choice that Mr. Enrile will profess with this great burden of responsibility he has undertaken.

  • el_latigo

    Who listens to Miriam anyways who loves to subtly grandstand but of course she will not admit it. Di halata kung mag-grandstanding siya. Pagalit kasi kung magbigay siya ng kanyang lectures. That’s the reason why ordinary people, instead of listening to her self-gratifying “intellectual discourse” simply would brush her aside. She loves listening to her own (angry) voice. Meanwhile, we ordinary taxpayers who are on the opposite sides of this taxing, sometimes irritating and tedious but necessary political exercise in search of truth should take our hats off to Enrile and Cuevas. They are the best in their fields nowadays. Conducting themselves with such uncommon professionalism and true gentlemen of the highest order inside the impeachment court. Lawyers and the public will learn a lot from these two legal intellectual giants. As for that character Miriam, we need her also in this ongoing telenovela. After all, all courts have their own in-house jesters…. As for the others like Lito Lapid, Bong Revilla and Tito Sotto, I’m not holding my breath because I’m not expecting too much that I will get my taxpayer’s money’s worth.

    Kudo’s to Enrile and Cuevas but not to maid Mirriam and Tupas. by the way the family of  Mirriam and Tupas are political rival back in their hometown Iloilo, that’s one way of scolding Tupas to get revenge. the Depensor always lost to Tupas in Iloilo.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_FE44WA5U5VGL267SV6SRN5FZFY earldiao

    Why is it that Sen. Mirriam is being demonized? She is just doing her job as a senator judge. It is not just her privilege but her duty to insure that only material and relevant facts are presented in relation to the issues of the impeachment. They are hitting Sen. Mirriam for grandstanding but for the trial to conclude with the least wastage of time, and media mileage by the “politicos” who want to impress the audience and the viewers, unnecessary manifestations and comments must be controlled. P-noys minions want Corona convicted even if the evidence could not stand the scrutiny of admissibility of evidence. They peddle on hearsays and innuendos. The reason why the rules of evidence must be observe is to make sure that a person charge is not convicted on the basis of lies and prevarication. The mob rule should not dictate the conduct of the trial. And by the way, yes Manong Johnny and Atty. Cuevas prove that like vintage wine, the older the better.         

    • Ulipur

      To Mr Ms ealdiao:

      At the moment I see the two OLDEST SUPERSTARs as having attained the unbeatable adeptness in using the LAWS for whatever objectives they want to attain.

      Cuevas is not capable of not hiding the truth if that is what will serve Corona.

      What is the objective of Enrile?

    I think we should preserve these two. They are what we call Endangered Species.
    Medyo nawawala na ang lahi.They should be given protection.
    or they should be cloned like Dolly the  sheep para di mawala ang lahi.

    Kidding aside,I fully admire these two octogenarian.
    I think Alzheimer disease is not in their vocabulary. Their thinking and knowledge of law is still embedded on their brains.
    Or was it a case of nagiging isip bata kaya bumalik ang galing sa batas.

    These two are the best examples of what a lawyer is. They concentrate only on law.
    Unlike today’s lawyers, they parade their resume and alway given a juicy post in gov’t or board of director in a company.
    They dont start from scratch so they forget to be hands on lawyers.

    I hope these two Enrile and Cuevas would outlive the Impeachment Trial.

    I have to give it to Cuevas that he is good at keeping the truth about Corona inside a cave – so far warding off attempts to penetrate the cave by his brilliant handling of legal technicalities. Filipinos will best remember him as the man who ably defended the foremost defender of the most corrupt president this country ever had.

    As for the stinking secrets of Corona, we have a saying that the truth will out in the end without doubt. And when it does, there goes the masterpiece of Cuevas down the drain. What a way of capping a brilliant law career.

    While it is obvious that Justice Cuevas is a much better lawyer than the prosecutors, the fact is he was unable to elicit anything damaging from Kim Henares despite a  lengthy cross. We should congratulate Ms. Henares.
     
    And, since most of the evidence in this case are documents, which speak for themselves, the lack of skill of the prosecutors will not matter much. The issue really will be voting by the senators. Will the prosecutors be able to get 16 votes on any of the articles?

      Reform is not forthcoming for the Philippines from this ‘DOG AND PONY SHOW’. All the central ‘COMEDIANS’ are one and the same. It is hard to differentiate who’s who. We should  ask all the Senator/Judges/Kurakots to show their SALN’s. And only then we can truthfully say they are worthy of their so called ‘REFORM’ goals.Unfortunately, it won’t happen. Again, the poor and hungry filipino masses are the losers.

      • sacrebleau

        The pessimism is understandable but once the SC has some semblance of credibility, and the backlog of cases are attended to, then I think positive things will start to happen. If cases are solved with speed as a right, within 90 days as prescribed by the Constitution, then that there is already a winner. So perhaps judges will look at a case also in the context of meaningless motions vs speedy resolution.

        Then there are those questionable TROs that only serve to make criminals escape, how do you deal with those? Only a cooperative SC that sees the big pic can deliver just reforms.

        Then there are the SC employees who are behaving as if they’ve been hypnotized to believe that the SC is their own private corporation, that they are only accountable to themselves, how do you deal with those when the likes of Corona and Midas only perpetuate that kind of attitude?

    ITO ANG HINAHANAP MONG KATOTOHANAN:::
    The truth is that  Noynoy wants CJ Corona out in SC to clear obstruction in his desire   that Hacienda Luisita will be paid  5 Billion by the government out of 5000 hectares distributed lands to HLI farmers under CARP law. SC’s earlier ruling indicates that only 400 million will be paid to HLI for  5000 Ha. @ the price of 80,000.00 per hectare. SC ruling was correct considering that the HLI lands was suppose to be distributed to the farmers last 1989 as per Agrarian Reform Law.  The truth is that Noynoy deceived the heart and minds of the filipino people particularly his supporters w/ CJ Corona’s impeachment by using GMA’s case to justify his propaganda of self righteousness  to cove-up his greedy self interest

    • SeanPhilippe

      ITO ANG TAMANG KATOTOHANAN….

      How can CJ Corona be an obstruction when he is just ONE VOTE in a collegial decision?

      How can he say he is an obstruction to Hacienda Luisita when HE IS NOT THE ONLY ONE TO DECIDE about the case?

      Is CJ Corona influencing other Justices’ decision?  

      I guess, it is based on your statements.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LHIWGAYTSGJDTVKOHUFKD7JRBI Jasmin

        @SeanPhilippe: If that’s your belief that Corona’s one vote can’t change the decision of the SC, why, then, do you think that the Hacienda Luisita Inc is moving for his inhibition from the deliberations on its Motion for Reconsideration?  Though Corona has only vote, his arguments are convincing..  Initially he was the proponent of the nullification of Stock Certificate Option (SCO) as he explained that “the spirit of the Agrarian Reform is defeated under the SCO as the tenants can’t become absolute owners thereunder”. 

      • SeanPhilippe

        It is the right of everyone to asked inhibition to any Justices who had shown partiality on a case. This is one proof that CJ Corona is biased. Even if he is just one vote, if you had shown your partiality, you have to inhibit. This is how democracy works.

        And this is one proof that the whole impeachment case is all about CJ Corona and not the Court as an institution. It is about CJ Corona showing partiality, bias, and he already made up his mind way before the case is heard.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LHIWGAYTSGJDTVKOHUFKD7JRBI Jasmin

        @Seanhilippe: What is the partiality? For talking in favor of the poor tenants who had been deprived of ownership of the lands for almost 3 decades? You talk about partiality if the act is contrary to the provision of law.

      • SeanPhilippe

        Looks like you do not know what is going on.

        The case on HLI was voted by the SC 14-0 with Carpio inhibiting for conflict of interest, and the decision also includes the President’s appointee, Sereno.

        What is being discussed here is the blatant declaration of CJ Corona, calling himself “malaking hadlang” when everyone concerned is entitled to due process and that includes the right to appeal the decision and the right to request for reconsideration on the amount of compensation.

        A Chief Justice like him should exercise restraint and show propriety. You are not appropriate to be the Chief Justice if you are declaring, for all the world to know, that you are the “malaking hadlang” when the case is still pending and being decided by all justices.

        You do not talk to people and telling them “binabraso ni Carpio ang kaso mo”, which will you deny later on.

        Better for him to be a politician than a Chief Justice.

      • rtgrtg

        Pag ang tao ginagamit ang salitang “binabtraso” malamang “nambabraso” din ito.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LHIWGAYTSGJDTVKOHUFKD7JRBI Jasmin

        @SeanPhilippe: What is your source for saying that Corona said “malaking hadlang”. At any rate, he has no personal interest in the case of Hacienda. Secondly, regarding the allegation that Corona told Vizconde “binabraso ni Carpio ang kaso mo”,  we are also not sure of it considering this Vizconde is attributing a lot of statements to so many justices in the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. This old man LAURO  is really insane.

    as far as i know and remember my father kept on saying the ilongos are very malambing, galit na malambing pa rin, but the exception to the rule yata is miriam, i’m not sure if the ilongo’s are proud of her, she may be very intelligent but she lacks the so called professional etiquette. during our college days, i think we have this engineering ethics as one of our subject and one of its many coverage is how you should behave as a professional and i believe this etiquette will fall under this subject category.i don’t know if you’re taking law whether they have this kind of subject, if they did, i wonder how miriam passed this subject. just the same, the lady senator is nothing but a complete show of arrogance. i wonder how she will fair in the icc. it’s better for her to stay home rather than listen to her antics. the exchange of wits between enrile and cuevas is far more than enough for me to be entertained and find the impeachement trial more interesting to follow. kudos to enrile and cuevas, tupaz, better hand the torch of prosecutor’s leadership to other who can represent his team in a more efficient manner.

    BIR Commissioner Kim Henares is better.

    Cuevas: Did he tell you ‘Go ahead. Sundin mo ang subpoena. Mag-appear ka, tumestigo ka at sabihin mo ang katotohanan’?

    Henares: Opo.

    Cuevas: Did he also say ‘Durugin mo na si Corona kung maaari?’

    Henares: Wala ho siyang sinasabing ganoon.

    Cuevas: So you were holding your punches in connection with the subject matter of your testimony because there was no such statement on the part of the higher up, of Malacañang?

    Henares: Sir, I do not hold my punches. I only do my job. I am a very professional person. Even if you’re my worst enemy I will just do my job.

    Cuevas: I hope you do not have enemies.

    • TGM_ERICK

      and you believe henares?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XIRUKSJA2DWBBI4I4T6CJVN6NY Gerald

        Henares will be put on the spot one of these days.  She will have much explaining to do.  How does a CPA lawyer who graduated from Ateneo and worked at SGV once upon a time content herself with the meagre salary of a BIR commissioner? 

        There’s more to her than what she claims.  Somewhere in those layers upon layers of fats, Henares has hidden and undeclared wealth tucked away. 

      • TGM_ERICK

        many of those who were watching the most recent epizode, didn’t get to see that cuevas scored a point in cross examining henares who could not answer whether she is privy to the fact that corona’s daughter worked abroad for 10 years the reason for not having filed her itr at certain years. and i read from another newspaper that the daughter has a doctor for a husband.

    oh guys, i can’t help but admire these two septuagenarians.  they have the diligence to prepare for the trial  i wonder if tupaz et al are also burning  their midnight oil like these two superminds are doing.  i will adopt the breakfast routine of ex sc justice cuevas, 2 eggs and a glass of milk, though i am not. diabetic. 

    i hope sen. santiago reads the comments of cuevas of her, she has to change.  sayang naman katalinuhan niya kung nasasapawan ng hindi maganda.

    After Marcos, it was Enrile who has dragged the Phils to oblivion. He and Honasan are the ones who didn’t give a chance for us to stand up setting waves upon waves of coup d etat to a very new & still weak Cory’s government. He could have done better to suppressed his personal ambition. He could just have wait, wielding his immense influence during that time, he could have been instrumental for Cory to suceed and we could have a better and healty new republic. I still admire Ramos for waiting and we all know that he didnt wait in vain. For Enrile, yes he is still sharp and admirable but I regret that he lost all the oppurtunities of greatness in Philippine history.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XIRUKSJA2DWBBI4I4T6CJVN6NY Gerald

      Jose, anong pinagsasabi mo? Oblivion?  We are not oblivious to the outside world, nor they us. 

      Where did you get your history — from Wikipedia?  Enrile and Honasan pulled us down?  Then why did your parents and many others like your parents vote for Honasan and Enrile to the senate?  You sound like some kid fresh from high school with little knowledge of what truly transpired in those days.  Both Enrile and Honasan, despite their personal ambitions, had and still have widespread support.  That’s something you and your romantic notion of Cory Aquino cannot take away from them.  Not even your revisionist history.  Cory was kind, nice, unassuming and lovely in yellow.  But that’s all she ever was and will be.  She was not prepared for the job, she came in with too much emotional baggage and focused on vengeance and ultimately caused massive power shortage and severe traffic congestion due to lack of planning.  Yes, she was religious and she probably left everything up to God.  If you cared to check the economic figures, it was during Cory’s time that MY and TH slowly surpassed us in GDP per capita and many other areas.  Sorry to burst your bubble kiddo.

      • Jose_Mercado

        That’s what i have said, we were pulled down economically during Cory’s era because of what this duo has done to the country. (as you have confirmed, so were so behind MY and TH now) And please stick to the issue, I can’t remember writing about voting and my parents and i didn’t even have the notion you have stated with Cory. What I am emphasizing here is whoever have taken running the gov. from 20 years of Marcos rule will be weak, Enrile, since he’s one of the Marcos’ boys could have done better in helping the next government. And sorry to say that i dont have bubble for you to burst, i dont pretend and im entitled to my opinion and yes im not ashame using Wikipedia.

  • Atlason

    Yes, Corona’s impeachment is all about Pnoy’s Hacienda Luisita really, although his apologists don’t want to admit it. Pnoy is just a rich, spoiled and vindictive haciendero who’s only achievement is to persecute Corona and GMA, and unlawfully at that. Look at all the years (12 in all) that Pnoy was in congress/senate, what is his acievement? Zero – no bills passed at all in the extended time that he was there. All he really cares about is fast cars and his shooting buddy like Rico Puno (infamous for receiving jueteng payola) and Llamas whom he lets off the hook whenever they’re in trouble.

  • dinddong

    Chief Justice Corona should resign immediately if he still has the word delicadesa or shame. Senate wasting too much time in the impeachment trial

    • dannyflorencio

      dinddong  why should CJ Corona resigns when the prosecution is already losing ground in the impeachment trial ? other than that members of prosecution are scrambling for position to be seen on National TV just like Farinas  causing conflict and disunity among themselves.

      Now they want to bring 100 witnesses in the trial not to win the case but for the appeasement of some members of the prosecution for non-exposure in the previous 2 weeks of hearing.  Equal exposure for all congressmen is the bottom line not  winning the case is the priority of this prosecution team.i Believe it or not, after all you are old enough to comprehend what is going on.

      why should corona would resign, the impeachment starts, so it must proceed till the end.. corona has nothing to hide , just only abnoy pnoy wants him out bcoz he will be the barrier of his satanic plans. only poor filipino people would suffer and not even abnoy pnoy, he wants corona out bcoz of thier haciendas..even his mother cory have done nothing w/ thier haciendas and also to the country… just only a democracy.. nothing else.. now since abnoy pnoy became president, did you feel any changes now ?.. what he did is chasing all his enemies and doing nothing w/ the country…

  • alluhrey

    If Enrile and Cuevas appear amazingly brilliant, it is only because the prosecution panel is amazingly inept.  There is very little in what Enrile and Cuevas are doing at the impeachment trial that a lowly-paid judge in a trial court and a private counsel in an ordinary judicial proceeding defending a poor client pro bono are not doing on a daily basis. 

    If Drilon, in the simple ascertainment of truth, was deemed biased for eliciting corona’s SALN from an unwilling witness,  then Defensor-Santiago is a zealot for procedure and technicalities in an apparent sacrifice of the truth. 

    I’d rather be terminally bored than be a terminal fraud.

    Si Enrile parang tubig yan eh. Kung anong sisidlan yun ang kanyang anyo. Kahit anong isulat nitong mga bayad na mga kolumnista, di nila mabubura na minsan, sa kasaysayan ng ating bayan, si Enrile ang nanguna sa executive committee ni Marcos na nag-akda ng Martial Law.

    Kung gusto nyong bigyan ng parangal si Juan Ponce, eto dapat ay Best Palusot award. dahil nagdusa at napiit ang karamihan ng nagpatupad ng martial law, pero lusot siya.

      i was once a student activist shouting profanities in the streets, marching from Diliman to the gates of Malacanang during the Marcos era. i was jailed and to some extent tortured! Some of my friends i never get to see again. But whatever we do then, the Marcos political structure is stronger than ever. It only takes someone from within to corrode this structure and eventually put to end a dark chapter in our nation’s history. Come EDSA’s people power, or so termed by many. Enrile had been vital to the success this upheaval. i think we should give him credit for giving us back our “democracy”.

    I admire the brain savvy, wit,wisdom,memory of the law of these two Super Lolos.
    Their brains are functioning well with no trace of senility, much more Alzhmeirs disease or in tagalog what we call Uli uli or isip bata.

    On the other hand, what makes these two octogenarians special is their Physical Health. They can sit, stand for a long time with no tireness.Much more their hair are still malago and black. Wala pang uban.And they still work and not dependent on their relatives.

    Unlike most filipinos who reach the age of 55 or 60 are already sick and weak.
    They become couch potato, wala palang couch sa pinas na gaano..
    And most of them become afflicted with disease called Bato or Batugan. They don’t move much but always asking for alm.

    I think we should emulate these two Super Lolos, Enrile and Cuevas not only mental but physical aspects of life.
    These two are the embodiment of what a filipino should be.

    These super olds are just bragging about their rusty knowledge of the rules , nothing more. Enrile, Cuevas et al. are just showing off what they know of the basic rules of court, which every law student, who is worth his or her salt, should know. If for this, these octogenarians are superstars, then we have thousands of these young superstars waiting in line in our law schools. If this is how easy it is to be a superstar, just to know the basic rules of court, it will not take long for the Phil, to have a “superstar-talentado boom.” All that Enrile and Cuevas are displaying on TV is how  “out of shape” they are to join in the arena of court trials. They are the “have beens” and they are re-living their “past glories.”

      Easier said than done mate. I would like to believe in what you say but from how I look at it, it takes a lot of wit to master a dynamic justice system just as ours and you can never digest all the bits and pieces of law when there is a cacophony and conundrum of opinions to look into and at the end of the day, only one opinion must be followed.
