‘Small lady’ no-show on Senate CCTV


BUT WHERE IS SHE? House prosecutor Representative Reynaldo Umali is caught on the Senate CCTV being interviewed by the media in this still-frame shot taken at 1:39 p.m. on February 2. SENATE CCTV

The prosecution’s “small lady” is apparently so tiny that she can’t be seen in the closed-circuit television (CCTV) videos of the Senate.

In a report to Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, a copy of which was obtained by the Inquirer on Monday night, Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Jose Balajadia Jr. said he had reviewed the CCTV videos and found no sign of the woman who, according to Mindoro Oriental Representative Reynaldo Umali’s account, showed up at the Senate on February 2 and handed him an envelope containing documents involving Chief Justice Renato Corona.

Basis for subpoena

The documents, including supposed photocopies of Corona’s specimen signature cards concerning his dollar deposits at Philippine Savings Bank (PSBank), served as the basis for the subpoena issued by the impeachment court on February 6 for the records of the Chief Justice’s bank accounts.

Enrile has ordered the prosecution, of which Umali is a member, to “explain in 24 hours” why it was able to obtain copies of the cards that Corona purportedly signed when he first opened a dollar account with PSBank’s branch on Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City, in 2008.

An unfazed Umali said Tuesday in one media interview that he was standing by his story, and joked that the woman he had earlier described as a “small lady” could have been so “microscopic” as to evade detection by the Senate CCTV.

Shooting whistle-blowers

Umali also told reporters that he would not have risked losing his lawyer’s license “had I not believed these documents were accurate.”

He said he did not know the woman who gave him the envelope.

In a press briefing, Marikina Rep. Romero Quimbo, the prosecution’s spokesman, expressed confidence that the impeachment court would not set aside the evidence presented by his team regarding Corona’s bank accounts.

Quimbo said there was no need for the prosecution to produce the woman who gave Umali the documents.

“Why are we shooting the whistle-blowers? Whoever the person who [provided the documents] has shown to us that we have a Chief Justice who was lying under oath. So why are we shooting that particular individual?” he said.

Quimbo also said the prosecution had full trust in the impeachment court’s judgment on the admissibility of the bank documents.

“We know and we trust that the Senate will always make the appropriate judgment in terms of ruling on the evidence because what they have right now were actually presented by the witnesses, not the ones attached by the prosecution,” he said.


Last week, Umali described the woman as “definitely heaven-sent” to the prosecution in its struggle to present the truth on Corona’s supposed unexplained wealth.

“I don’t really know who she is,” he said then. “I can’t remember her face. She appeared to be very ordinary, definitely not that beautiful because otherwise I would have paid more attention to her.”

The lawmaker said the woman gave him the envelope “probably in the Senate premises” while he was on his way to his vehicle to attend a meeting with other prosecution members in a hotel on Roxas Boulevard.

Iloilo Rep. Niel Tupas Jr., the chief prosecutor, told the impeachment court that Umali turned over the envelope to the team during its regular meeting in the hotel.

Tupas said the prosecution attached the contents of the envelope to its request for subpoena because it believed in the documents’ accuracy.

Umali said the woman’s identity was “irrelevant” as long as she helped the prosecution in bringing out the truth about Corona’s local and foreign currency deposits.

Told that the documents were illegally acquired in violation of the Bank Secrecy Law, Umali said: “I don’t think [the principle of] the fruit of the poisonous tree applies here. After all, it’s the court that agreed to subpoena the bank documents.”

Umali’s movements

In a report to Enrile dated February 7, Balajadia said he reviewed the CCTV footage that recorded the movements on February 2 of “a person bearing the appearance of Congressman Reynaldo Umali” in the Senate from the time of arrival at 1:07 p.m. until the time of departure on 3:19 p.m.

Umali was seen entering the lobby at 1:07 p.m. and proceeding to take the stairs to the Padilla Room on the second floor, which houses the prosecution staff members and also serves as working area for the House press corps.

Shortly after, camera No. 11 captured Umali while having an interview with the media at 1:39:20 p.m.

The footage showed Umali talking with “a short female, although we did not monitor anything that appeared to be a transfer of documents or objects between the two individuals,” Balajadia said.

Media and Senate security personnel surrounded Umali while he was being interviewed in the hallway leading to the Senate press room.

The next footage captured by camera No. 10 showed Umali taking the elevator from the second floor to the fifth floor at 1:42 p.m.

Another ‘short female’

Umali entered the Pendatun Room, which serves as the temporary office of the prosecution, but at 2:28 p.m. “he was seen standing outside near the Pendatun Room appearing to be talking to an individual who appears to be a short female,” Balajadia said.

“Their interaction lasted until about 2:33 p.m.,” he said.

Camera No. 14 footage showed Umali entering the Senate session hall at 2:26 p.m. when the impeachment trial had already started. He left at 3:15 p.m. using the exit stairs on the second floor.

No camera has been installed in this area, which makes it a blind spot. It took Umali only a minute to surface at the main lobby on the ground floor.

Umali boarded his car at 3:19 p.m.

“Please note that we did not monitor anything that appeared to be a transfer of documents or objects from his interaction with an unidentified person in the fifth floor, not at the Session Hall, second floor hallway, and ground floor lobby up to the time he exited the Senate lobby and seemingly boarding a vehicle,” Balajadia said.

‘Fake documents’

Under questioning by Senator Francis Escudero at the February 6 hearing, Umali said he could not recall the identity of the woman, or where exactly in the Senate he had met her.

But he recalled meeting her before leaving the Senate for the Department of Public Works and Highways’ main office in Port Area, Manila, where he followed up some of his pending projects before proceeding to Midas Hotel and Casino for the regular post-trial briefing with members of the prosecution.

He said that while in his car en route to the meeting, he looked at the documents that he later turned over to Tupas at the meeting.

But when she testified at the impeachment court on Monday, PSBank Katipunan branch manager Annabelle Tiongson said the specimen signature cards submitted by the prosecution to the Senate Clerk of Court were not genuine.

“[These] are fake documents,” Tiongson said. “These did not come from our bank. [These] are not replicas of genuine documents.”

Enrile, Escudero and Sen. Jinggoy Estrada took turns in questioning Tiongson on the authenticity of the signature cards.

‘Short’ custodians?

According to Tiongson, signature cards are kept in a cabinet in a vault at the bank.

She said two bank officers held the key for the “safekeeping” of the cards, but that she could access the documents as well.

Enrile’s said: “Not one of them can open the filing cabinet without the other?”

She replied: “Yes, it’s a joint custody.”

Asked by Sen. Jinggoy Estrada whether the custodians of the signature cards were “small ladies,” Tiongson said they were “shorter than I am” but that the height of a person was “relative” to the observer.

    Why would the prosecution team presenting an evidence that is not certified by the bank or directly came from the bank itself. I think that is a negligence and total stupdity. If piece evidence  does not show proof of it’s genuine originality, then it is trash and the prosecution could be charge for comitting false evidence. That will devastate the case. You can not say “it came from him, her, and this and that, and so on. The presentation must be valid and genuine.

  • SeanPhilippe

    The document maybe FAKE however, there was no statement of denial that such dollar account did not exist.

    In fact, PSBank went in length on this issue by going to the Supreme Court, which the court later granted and was given a TRO.

    Impeachment Court is NOT a judicial court. It is a court whose main objective is to find the TRUTH. The accused will never go to jail nor will be fine with hundreds of millions of pesos. The accused will simply be removed from holding public office.

    Holding a public office carries a great weight and with it, comes great moral responsibility. It is expected that these people will render service honestly and fairly, without fear or favor, and will comply with our laws completely. The higher is the office, the greater is the responsibility, the greater power is entrusted.

    With all these talks about dollar accounts, CJ Corona never stated in his SALN that he owned a dollar account. However, his lawyer, Karen Jimeno made a statement that Corona’s dollar accounts were part of his savings before he became Chief Justice. And Corona only became Chief Justice on May 2010. All his previous SALN before being the Chief Justice stated NO DOLLAR ACCOUNTS.

    Now, the impeachment court is given the chance, the opportunity to get the TRUTH. Will they allow their hands to be tied simply because of LEGALITIES? 

    If the impeachment court would rather observe all legalities, then they are not qualified to sit as impeachment court. Let the justices of the Supreme Court sit as impeachment court since, as all the Senator-Judges had been saying, Supreme Court is the last interpreter of the law.

    Indeed, TRUTH is very elusive especially now that the TRO encourages everyone to be in public service, steal as much money as you can, corrupt the position to its full capacity, convert the ill-gotten wealth into dollars, and no one will know how you’ve become the richest man in this country. 

    And being a public servant, forget about being honest and truthful on SALN. The Supreme Court’s TRO made it a piece of junk.

    The more the impeachment court allowed themselves to be entangled with legalities, the more it tells us that IMPEACHMENT IS A FUTILE EXERCISE. 

    The best course would be: OCCUPY PADRE FAURA !!!

    • erick_1972

       If really Corona is guilty then so be it remove him from office but at the expense of violating a law. The law in confidentiality on bank records are absolute and clear. Even If Corona had foreign accounts specially dollars ,how would have they known this when the law is strict . The end does not and never justify the means .They have charged the Chief Justice with 8 articles then why concentrate on the other articles. If there are no laws in these land to follow what more would the country become. That banking law have been there for more than 35 years ,to protect not only one person but the entire nation, This nation is facing tougher task to survive and to expose the law would put more brunt on this country to survive. OFW ,BPO ,manufacturing and trading would be surely be hit with those foreign having to transact their business with these banks. Banking confidentiality has already broken what reassurance can the banks give to its depositor nor foreign investor that they can transact their business.Indeed the country looking for the REAL TRUTH, but what expense .Economic turmoil,  more unemployment ,more hungry mouths to feed.

      • SeanPhilippe

        He is a public official and as such, he is required by law to DECLARE ALL HIS ASSETS. Public has the RIGHT TO KNOW. No secrecy law applies here when there is another law that requires you to disclose your assets being a public official.

      • erick_1972

        All public officials should declare their assets and liabilities.That is there a Statement of assets and liabilities.Agreed on that but to break the foreign currency law never. This not a question of legality nor truth but a question of the economic significance. Even the greatest assurance by all of the senators would they give the money lost by the bank if there was a bank run.Would they give money to factories , business that were affected by a closure of a bank.Is the truth that important or mouths to feed not that important.They always assure but what is an assurance to the real world .A word for the a money at hand. The end does not justify the means.

      • SeanPhilippe

        As a public official, he needs to abide by what RA6173 demands from him. That same law is telling him, informing him, that the PUBLIC HAS THE RIGHT TO KNOW.

        To respect the bank secrecy law, you have to respect the Constitution and other laws first especially if you are a PUBLIC OFFICIAL.

    I think the best way to check if Umali is telling the truth is to:

    a.  Ask him how many people gave him papers on the day he said he received the envelope from

    b.  Give him  a simulation test.  Memory test ,For sure though he will be playing amnesiac  
          Recognition  test kaya. Pwede din pshchological test kung may amnesia, or lie detector test.   
          Whatever,   mahuhuli din ang kasi nungalingan niyan.
    c.   I set up siya.  lagyan bugging devices sa mga places or things that is with him,  mahuli sa bibig.

      It does not matter if the evidence is not acquired in good faith, what matter is the account exists.

    Look how Justice Cuevas masterfully played with his legal gambit. When Osmena and Drilon jointly pursued other accounts and investments of CJ Corona in BPI, the two noynoy allies played their cards well by creating in the minds of the public that CJ Corona has additional investments in BPI which are not known to the public. Cuevas took their bluff and played as if CJ Corona was hiding something. It took a long while, or at least two hearings and appearances of witness Dizon, only to tell Osmena flat on his face that there are no such accounts except one bank current account. To his consternation, Osmena remarked “Then why is the Defense counsel so worried?” To this Cuevas replied, “I thought you are addressing the question to Sen. Drilon your honor” to the amusement of the gallery. Cuevas reply was a veiled suggestion that they are lawyering again for the Prosecution by obtaining evidence. This time they appear to be jokers of the senate. When the time of the Defense comes, the same scenario will be revealed to the public.

    Fakes and lies, FAKERS and LIARS.  That seems to be the order of the day.  Still smarting embarrassment from defending the caper of Ronald Llamas buying pirated DVD’s, the Palace is defending the lies pf Congressman Umali, declaring to the press that the leaked documents are authentic.

    The Palace spokesman has thrown all cautions to the wind in this exercise, unabashedly assuming the role of being the propaganda mouthpiece of the prosecutors.  His actions betrays their former claim that they have nothing to do with the impeachment initiation at first, followed by his statements to the press that they will stay away from it and leave the matter to Congress. 

    We were not born yesterday, however.  Blatant lies however expressed are detectable because the event is fully covered by media, and the people are very interested and observant.  It would be the highest state of folly for the lying spokesman to believe that his lies will stick.  

    Only those who want to deceived out of fanaticism will stay deceived.

    It does not matter if the evidence is not acquired in good faith, what matter is the account exists.

    The PSBanks accounts/docs presented as evidence are fake if PSBank’s
    definition of fake is that the information is not printed in the
    official and duly signed PSBank’s documents i.e. passbooks SA & CA,
    Certificate of Time Deposit, etc. However, the evidence could be true if
    the “source” is a legit or existing Account Number with its
    corresponding Account Name that is current. The only problem is that it
    can only be printed or written on a piece of paper. Securing the
    original docs is impossible.

      • sorbetero

        And to follow your reasoning, did you or anybody see and compare Umali’s copy with the original so that your conclusion can hold water? Wala pang original na na-iprisinta so hindi mo pwedeng sabihing fake. What is uncontested ,as the records of the president’s testimony has shown are – that the account numbers are all correct (5 in pesos and 5 in US dollars) at ang signatures ng branch manager at ni CJ on the so-called “fake” are real, so at this point, prima facie ,genuine ang kay Umali.

      You are correct and may we add, the bank accounts were confirmed by the bank president to belong to the respondent CJ, five (5)  of which were in pesos and the remaining five (5) in US dollars. Exacto.In addition , the signatures on the document were confirmed to be those of the branch manager AND , take note, that of the depositor himself. Now, how can it be loosely claimed as fake when the entries are undeniably genuine? Lalo na kung verbal lang ang katapat, wala ng iba pa? Katakataka!!!

      • marriondale

        The problem is di naman ma-authenticate yung document; hence, spurious and inadmissible.  Pati ngayon, sinabi na ni senate president enrile that he takes full responsibility over the subpoenas he issued on the strength of that document.  Isa lang ang ibig sabihin nito, kung wala naman talagang small lady, nagsinungaling at posibleng nanghingi ang prosecution ng dokumento sa bangko kahit illegal ito.  Baka ma-disbar pa yung mga abogadong gumawa nito if they had the intention in the first place.

      • sorbetero

        Ipagpalagay nating tama ang theoria mo na “nanghingi ang prosecution ng dokumento(mismo) sa bangko”,  samakatuwid galing mismo sa PSBank ano, eh di lalo ng hindi “fake”ito,  tama di ba. At kung ibinigay na kusang luob mismo ng bangko, eh di sila mismo (bangko) ang dapat usigin, tama ba ulit? Samakatuwid, baka taga bangko ang tinaguriang “small lady” but that description is inconsequential to the issue of whether Umali’s document is “fake” DAW? Anyway, authenticated naman lahat ng entries duon and that is now uncontested.

    To be a lawyer one has to posses good brains, undergo arduous hardships and engage in court battles.  In the case of Mr. Renato Corona, I would assume that he told his defense team the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.  It is only then that he can be fully defended well by his lawyers.  The defense team has the obligation to defend Mr. Renato Corona at all cost.  That is why both panels are employing everything legal that they know at their disposal, either to defend or prosecute.  Remember the case of O.J. Simpson?.  Bottom line:  is Mr. Renato Corona worth the peoples’ trust and confidence after everything has been said and done?

      NoyNoy is a known compulsive person.

      The fact that he chain smokes shows his mental framework to be OC.

      He would stay up late until the wee hours of dawn, and sleep until noon.

      i agree. if this impeachment trial is being done by adhering to all proper legal procedures and relying on unquestionable facts and solid evidence, it would be fair to the people as well as to corona whether he’s impeached or not. the problem is the imposition of dirty tactics particularly by the prosecution  which made the entire process a failure from the beginning…furthermore, how can we expect a fair judgment with some senator judges blatantly revealing  whose side are they on? the defense will always make “palusot” but if the prosecution will just stick to the facts and come up with one solid evidence in just one  article, tapos na ang laban. kaso nawala ang professionalism pati na rin ang credibility  dahil sa kahambugan.

    The prosecution has really fouled up the impeachment proceedings. They are terribly ignorant of the law and totally incompetent. If Corona is acquitted, the prosecution will only have himself to blame. The situation is compounded by the lack of introspection by senator-judges like Drilon, Osmeña and Pangilinan who have not been behaving as jurors, but as prosecutors. This kind of behavior by the supposed judges only undermines the impeachment proceedings. These senators, by their naked show of partiality, have only cast doubt on whether the proceedings can be fair and according to procedure.

    The “small lady” is none other than the PS Bank branch manager, Tiongson, who is related by affinity to chief prosecutor Tupas. Tupas’ involvement in skullduggery is emerging. Tupas, by engaging in illegal acts, has single-handedly destroyed the case for the prosecution.

    The “small lady” character is a mere pseudo name to complete the script  created by the Prosecution Team, which unfortunately, EXPLODED ON THEIR FACES……Shame…

    • deejhay

       sarap sabihin..IN YOUR FACES!!! hahahahah!!!!

  • pogisinats

    Si “small lady” ay isang matalinong tao.
    Bakit iaabot ni small lady ang envelope sa lugar na alam niyang may CCTV camera?
    Kung ikaw si small lady, gagawin mo ba iyon?
    Hindi lahat ng lugar ay abot ng CCTV camera.

    • seve rino

    paano makita ng CCTV e masyadong small ang lady…kasing liit ng langgam nakakagat sa bayag ni Cong Umali-s !!!

  • katabay1106

    She was no small lady, He was a small man and he is a Congressman. He most probably get it from the Manager of PS Bank whose family is their political ally in Iloilo. Sen Estrada is very smart. He learns very well from Senate President Enrile. Kudos Senator!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/MVQTXYYHXZF5LNAQFNQ6CU6W6M P P

       Kaya magkakalink sila Tiongson, Tupas at Brenda kaya ipatawag na lahat ng mga taga Iloilo kung taga San Juan din sila kasi tyak kamag-anak incorporated sila nila Junggoy

      • seve rino

        Sama na si Drilon kasi taga Iloilo yan at si Osmena kasi may kamag anak yan na ilonggo

  • seve rino

    Nalusutan ni small lady ang defense kaya marami ang nagalit.

  • Lolo_Basyong

    Naku, yari itong si Umali and the prosecution.  Walang naniniwala sa ‘small lady’ na kwentong barbero.  Hehehehehe…. Did they really think the senators, like Enrile, are that gullible?  

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PZCN62UBWNKFSNDJ2D3JQBBBWQ max m

    i have a invisble friend too. thats only when i dont take my medication or listen to the antics of the senate

  • 711sense

    It is very obvious to me who is lying… Umali is.

  • 711sense

    The ilonggo kamag anak gang strikes again… Watch out for Miriam, she’ll be after all of you. I have the feeling that the dots conenecting between the gang will be revealed soon… some photo or video evidence would be a plus.
