Ana Basa: We’re talking only now due to revelations in trial


(Last of two parts)

(Editor’s Note: In this interview, Ana Basa, one of Jose Ma. Basa III’s nine children and one of the heirs of the original stockholders of Basa-Guidote Enterprises Inc., talks about the family corporation and what she says were the injustices heaped on them by Chief Justice Renato Corona and his wife Cristina.

For security reasons, Ana, who is here on a short visit, requested the Inquirer not to reveal her whereabouts. She has been in the casino business for more than 20 years in Las Vegas, Nevada.

She clarified on Tuesday a sentence in the introduction to Part 1 of the Q and A which reads: “Jose Ma. Basa III, one of the original BGEI incorporators, had filed an estafa case against his niece [Cristina] for her alleged failure to account for the P34-million income from the sale of a property on Bustillos Street in Sampaloc, Manila, to the city government.”

Ana said the estafa case against Cristina Corona, filed in 1995, was about the BGEI rental income, not the proceeds from the sale of the property. )

Philippine Daily Inquirer: Of the original stockholders of Basa-Guidote, how many are still alive?

Ana Basa and Cristina Corona

ANA BASA: Well, my Mom is 83 years old and she’s one of the stockholders. Sister Flor just turned 90; Cecilia Basa, spouse of Mario Basa who passed away; Cristina’s mom, Asuncion Roco, already passed away.

Basa is my grandfather, Guidote is my grandmother’s last name. That’s why it became Basa-Guidote Enterprises Inc. My grandmother, after my grandfather passed away, set up the corporation so that someday all her children would have a business, a life together.

I didn’t think in her wildest dreams that it would end up like this. BGEI is just a small corporation. It’s really about the injustice. It’s about us telling the truth. We just want the truth to come out, how these things just kinda got so out of control. Imagine one person being in sole control of a corporation? Her (Cristina’s) mom only had a 10-percent share!

PDI: How did it happen?

BASA: Like I said, we still have pending cases in court regarding BGEI. So we really would rather not discuss the cases right now.

PDI: I understand Cristina’s father was the president (of the corporation)?

BASA: Cristina’s father was a lawyer and he was the president of the corporation. Being a lawyer, we trusted him of course, Vicente Roco also being our tito. He eventually entrusted this to his daughter, Cristina, who  became like his administratrix. Since then we never questioned anything because, you know, why should you not trust your own relatives? It was not until 1989 when we started receiving complaints from the tenants of the property [the Basa-Guidote Building on Legarda Street corner J. Figueras Street (formerly Bustillos) in Sampaloc, Manila].

My dad felt it was time (for us) to find out what was going on. He asked for an accounting but we have never been able to attain that. So I don’t understand why an administratrix of BGEI refuses to show us an accounting. That’s why when that piece of property in Manila was sold in 2001, expropriated, to the city of Manila, we didn’t really know what happened to the funds.

PDI: Have you not talked with Cristina?

BASA: I wrote Cristina a personal letter years ago … my father had already passed away, if we could just work this out. We don’t need to keep fighting over this whole thing. I’ve never been able to get her to respond and I believe it’s because she knew, this is just my feeling, that we could not fight them because they were so powerful. Not her alone, because she could not have done this on her own but she obviously is married to someone (who) at that time was already in Malacañang.

When he (Renato Corona) was nominated to be part of the Supreme Court as an associate justice, my father tried to oppose that with the JBC (Judicial and Bar Council) because we knew that the abuse that they’ve done toward us. If he can do that to us, what more (to) those who are not rich, who are not powerful, who are just ordinary people?

It’s important for the people to know that they have someone in the Supreme Court, particularly a Chief Justice whom they should trust because cases are under the Supreme Court and is part of the judicial system. But if people cannot trust [the Chief Justice], then something needs to be done. Because as I said, [if cases are decided] based on merits, would we still have pending cases? But it’s not about merits anymore. It is based on who your enemy is. We were even told by the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) and others told us, “Your problem is you have a powerful enemy.” We knew that.

We were told that we had a good case but our problem is our enemy. We hired lawyers but they quit. They became afraid because they were threatened and followed. They no longer wanted to represent us because they said they, they too, have families.

I said: Oh my God! Even lawyers were afraid to represent us. That’s not good for this country to have that sort of fear of a powerful enemy. To me [striking fear in the hearts of your enemy’s lawyers] is an abuse of his power.

PDI: On the P11 million (Corona’s cash advance from BGEI), do you have any idea how Corona was able to obtain that loan?

BASA: We were shocked. We saw it in his SALN. How can they make a cash advance? Shouldn’t they get some sort of a board resolution to allow the cash advance?

PDI: How come there was a withdrawal? What’s the business of Basa-Guidote?

BASA: We had rentals there, about eight tenants. That’s why I’m saying that for BGEI to be included in the impeachment trial, it’s just our family corporation. My grandmother, Rosario Guidote Basa, my dad, Tito Mario, Tita Monina and Tita Chitang, bless their souls, can’t even be at peace right now because all of this is still happening. I don’t think my lolo and lola ever imagined that by setting up a corporation the family was going to end up like this.

PDI: You were renting out the building to tenants?

BASA: We were renting out stalls and Cristina at the time was in charge of collecting rent.

PDI: Is lending money also part of your business?

BASA: I am uncertain of this.

PDI: What about the P32.6 million in three PSBank accounts, which according to his lawyers, was the money from Basa-Guidote? Probably, Cristina just put the money in the name of her husband for safekeeping because of pending cases.

BASA: I don’t know why it’s even under Renato Corona’s name because it should have been deposited under BGEI’s account.

I don’t know what to say about all that. We’re here really to try to get answers because we have not been able to obtain any kind of accounting for BGEI as to where the money went. The cash advance surprised us. We didn’t bring this out. We only found out during the impeachment trial because it was in his SALN.

PDI: What’s the status of this company? Is it closed already?

BASA: Well, apparently. I only found out during the impeachment trial that it was already dissolved in 2003.

PDI: Yes, and that’s according to the SEC.

BASA: If Cristina’s saying she’s the administratrix of BGEI, why doesn’t she report to the SEC all that she’s supposed to do? I believe that SEC was formed to protect corporations, but I can’t understand how one person can have full control [of a company] and the other stockholders are deprived of their rights.

PDI: The SEC said it (BGEI) failed to report three times already that was why it decided to dissolve it based on SEC rules.

BASA: Well, because Cristina, I guess, didn’t report to the SEC. I don’t know because we were not in control.

PDI: Where is the office of Basa-Guidote?

BASA: It was in Manila. It’s gone. The property has been expropriated.

PDI: By the city of Manila?

BASA: Yes. That was sold to the city of Manila, through Mayor Lito Atienza.

PDI: How come Corona was able to take out a loan from BGEI when it was already dissolved?

BASA: That’s what we would like to know. We really want to get some answers. I think they said that they were paying back the loans. To whom are they paying back? Let’s say they borrowed money from BGEI, and are paying back, where are they depositing the payments? I don’t know.

PDI: If the money paid by the Manila government for expropriating the Basa-Guidote property belonged to the company, why was it deposited in Renato Corona’s account instead of being deposited in a corporate account or in an escrow account?

BASA: We’d like to know. I don’t have any answers because I don’t know the laws here in the Philippines as far as corporate and banking [matters are concerned] if the check was made out to Cristina Corona in trust of BGEI. We don’t know where that check was deposited.

PDI: All of you are American citizens? All your siblings?

BASA: Yes, my father was not and he was one of the original stockholders. We’re the heirs.

PDI: So how many more are alive?

BASA: Well, Tita Flory is still around. My dad’s side, we are nine kids. Cristina’s side, there are eight siblings. Then my Tito Mario has nine. The two nuns have no children, obviously.

PDI: But the other sister is still alive, right? Can she talk?

BASA: You know what? As a nun, she’s very forgiving and we are all very forgiving people. I have long forgiven them. This is just about telling the truth.

PDI: So all in all there are 26 heirs?

BASA: Nine, nine and eight. I don’t know if Asuncion gave 10 percent of BGEI shares directly to Cristina or to the family. I think it was given to Cristina but how about the rest of her siblings?

You know, what is sad is that a family is supposed to be family. It’s sad because all of this turned out like this. But the fight is not just for us—me, my family. The fight really is more for justice. And even now we continue to fight because I told my father, on his death bed, “I would continue his fight for justice.”

PDI: That’s why the pending cases?

BASA: Well, it’s justice for the sufferings that were done to [us]. I said somebody needs to be accountable. You know when you do something, you need to be accountable for what you do. So I believe the Coronas need to be held accountable.

PDI: The Chief Justice has been saying it’s a family problem.

BASA: I don’t understand him saying in front of TV and newspapers that he “purposely stayed away from this because this BGEI is a family issue.” But then I personally saw him in court during our hearings with his security (detail). So if he purposely stayed away, why was he attending our hearings and standing in front of the judge during the hearing? I saw them walking into the judge’s chamber just before the hearing started. So at that time, I wondered why they entered the judge’s chamber and talked to the judge just before the hearing started.

Is that allowed? I really did not understand why it was happening back then. And all we could do was just sit and wait for the judge to come out for the hearing. And so obviously we lost our cases.

Like I said, why would he say he purposely stayed away. If he purposely stayed away, why was the money in his account and not under BGEI? How was he able to get a cash advance? That’s not purposely staying away. That is actually purposely being involved.

We just want answers. If my dad did not get justice in his lifetime, we would like to see at least my mother, my Tita Flory and the rest to get justice in their lifetime so that they can move on and enjoy peace. They can at least enjoy life different from spending the past 20 years being afraid, being so oppressed and being under duress because of these cases. That’s not how you wanna live the rest of your life as you get older.

PDI: Have you tried reconciling with Cristina?

BASA: Well, we did. We tried that. I sent a personal letter to Cristina to please, if anybody had done anything, let’s forgive and just be family. But they never responded. We tried to reach out and I asked many people to talk to the Coronas to see how we can put an end to this. But at that time, apparently they were not ready to do that. Again, because they were in power, so why settle with us? Because they could just step all over us. They still have the power and I think all of this is an abuse of his power.

My entire family … I don’t even know the right words—pain, suffering, frustrations, heartaches, you name it. We felt all that. In the end, we just want our family and relatives to feel somehow victorious that we got justice in our lifetime.

Again, like I said earlier, we’re coming out now because there’s been a lot of revelations that we’re finding out through the impeachment trial. It’s almost like … I don’t know how to call it. Is that a blessing in disguise or is this what they call karma? Because now, we at least finally got some answers but there’s still a lot of questions like you said. But we’re still waiting to get some answers.

I would like to believe and feel… I don’t wanna be afraid of them retaliating because we were traumatized all those years. We knew that we could easily feel that fear. Why can’t the Filipinos just live without fear or favor, you know? If there’s a case, why can’t it all just be done fairly without feeling that you need to be afraid of who you are up against?

PDI: Why are you in tears?

BASA: Because it’s bringing back sad memories of how my parents were suffering… the fear in their faces. I even had to send somebody to pick them up at our house because they were being harassed—people with guns walking around our house. And so we had to bring them to a hotel.

It’s just really sad for me to watch my parents and my other aunts to be so afraid for their lives.

PDI: Do you fear for your life, safety?

BASA: No, I shouldn’t. I shouldn’t fear for my life. Before, yeah. My parents were so afraid. We were all afraid because of the harassment, phone calls from people you don’t know.

We should really be able to live our lives without fear you know. Our fear stemmed from the fact that they were capable of harassing us.

We have to stress that I’m doing this also for the good of the country. Not only for us. It’s for the good of the country that there’ll be justice for everyone.

    Specially for the Pinoys who have less in life, this story is the real/true issue of this impeachment process.

    Former Sen. Rene Saguisag has repeatedly and consistently called Renato Corona a “mata pobre”. This story, viewed from the eyes of the pobre, is a clear illustration of the perverted kind of “rule of law” very commonly perpetrated by the “haves” over the “have nots”.
    The senators can not fail the people on this one. The nation cannot afford to squander this rare golden opportunity for genuine reform in the justice system. “kapag puno ang salop…”.

      whoa! i just quoted you on this.  where did you get the article? please share and post the link if there is any, for everyone to read.  if this happened long before the impeachment case, ibang klase pala talaga si CJ. 

      • Lopez_Chaena

        Dont read anymore the article where Rene Saguisag called his “tokayo” mata pobre. Your blood will boil with anger at the ruthlessness of Corona.

  • Arthur

    I hope the Prosecution in the Impeachment Trial are reading this story. They can secure the cooperation of Ana Basa as a possible rebuttal witness after the Defense has presented its case. In doing so, they should also make sure she is safe and protected from parties who may not want her to testify.
    God really works in mysterious ways and may your family get the justice they deserve.

      Meron ka pang isang nakalimutan Richard, bagama’t tunay na napakarami nila, yung iba nga bumalingbing na. Ang tinutukoy ko ay yung binanggit ni Ana Basa na si dating mayor Lito Atienza, na siyang nag facilitate ng bilihan ng property sa Bustillos. Maybe the Impeachment Court should they decide taking cognizance of this development might also consider issuing a subpoena to Mr. Atienza on his involvement of putting the last nail on the coffin on the juridical life of BGIE. Both Corona and Atienza were fair haired boys under the former Arroyo administration and the connection was very telling to be ignored.

      • jiroarturo

        Kawatan din yata si Atienza. Overpriced yata ang bentahan ng lote ng BGEI. Meron sumulat na P26M ang bilihan. Bakit naging P34M sa cheke? Pwede kayang tingnan uli ang deed of sale? Nagbayad kaya ng tax ang BGEI?

    under his tuwid na daan ( most people would say tuwid na paa…sa gutom, patay na!), and

      Don’t bring in PNoy here.. The president has more serious things to do than meddle in family matters. But then you realize that it goes beyond family , its impact is like a tsunami. Here’s CJ bullying his own relatives, arrogant in the abuse of his power. The way he behaves and, his actions speak louder than words, befits a siga, Definitely not a Chief Justice!

    This was what the late Good Samaritan Foundation founder Art Borjal have written about when Midnight CJ was being considered for SC appointment and he boasted beforehand that he will be the next SC Justice. This events pre-dates the Luisita case and Midnight appointment decision and clearly showed what kind of character he really was ! Midnight CJ is now fully exposed in his nakedness as a Legal Bully who don’t care to use intimidation and explains why a Justice indulges as a hobbyist for gun shooting ! Perhaps, that is why he expressed the words that he can only be removed from his post by shooting him ! 

  • George

    Madam Ana Basa, on behalf of the Pilipino nation and Pilipinos around the world we are guaranteeing to you and your entire family that justice and honor may live and we will see to it that beyond a reasonable doubt the chief justice, renato coronado corona, will be given the justice he so deserves that he had denied to his wife’s relatives and to the many other Pilipinos who suffered injustices during his rule of law. we have seen a lot of erring public officials in the Philippines, but by far this is the most disgusting culpable violations of the constitution of the republic. God save the Philipines!!! Pilipinas ay que lindo y querido!!! ang mamatay ng dahil sa iyo!!!

    grabe pala itong ginawa ni cj corona at ni cristina….kung totoo yong sinasabi ni ana basa…

  • Political Jaywalker

    Perhaps this is the mindset of some people in the Philippines where they hoodwink their relatives who are out of the country and settled in the US. I have not encountered any FilAm owning a property in the Philippines who did not encounter sad experiences with their relatives.

    So this revelation of Ana Basa is very credible as this just validate the experience of others who are taken advantages of by greedy relatives in the Philippines. But this experience of the Basa’s truly is just too much to comprehend or fathom that Renato Corona a suppossedly honorable man will go to this length to oppress his wife’s relatives. To even admit openly that the BGEI funds was deposited in his personal bank account and withdrawing at the time of his impeachment truly shows the thuggery of this man…… do people still believe we deserve a Chief Justice like Corona?

    • anak_mahirap50

      No, thief Corona should be jailed, NOW!

  • George

    I distincly remember when serafin cuevas was cross examining the bir comm., kim henares, and was told that cristina corona got paid 34 million pesos from the city of manila gov’t. the wife’s cousin was wondering why the money was deposited under the name of cj corona, instead of basa-guidote ent. ito ang alibi ng depensa kaya may kakayahan bumili ng mga ariarian ang mga corona ayon kay cuevas. maraming heredero at naging opisyales ang nasabing corp. kaya hindi pwedeng umakto ang mga corona na walang pahintulot ang mga kamaganak na katulad ng magulang ni ana basa.

    maliwanag dito na si cj corona ay palaging gamit ang salitang, what are we in power for. power tends to corrupt, absolute power corrupts absolutely. kawawang mga basa-guidote goliath ang inyong bankala eh ano gah ang panalo ninyo. eh di himutok.

    at this point in time i am amenable to joker arroyo’s, bongbong marcos and miriam santiago’s vote for cj corona’s acquittal but i will not agree to the rest of the other senator-judges who are more independently minded and defender of truth and fortitude. from the quantum and preponderance of evidence against cj corona, he is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. his continued presence and the gma appointed associate justices does not and will not work well for the national interests and patrimony of the nation. mandatory radical reforms after the impeachable dream of cj corona, must be instituted immediately and without further delay at the supreme court.

    now, we know where renato corona and the family got their wealth, from the BGEI!!!!  thank you Anna Basa for sharing your stories and for coming out in the open. i believe in you 100%.  why? dahil tinataya mo ang buhay mo para lang sa katutuhanan kaya saludo ako sa iyo.  the good will eventually win against the evil.

       Hehehe And there’s so many Hudas in the Philippines specially in the government sectors  who deserves “Gaba or Karma” they are now gradually reaping what they have sown…sabi nila weather weather lang…now the weather seems too bad for those Hudases, para silang kutong nagsasanib pwersa para di matiris nag-aanyo silang parang balakubak sa anit, kapit tuko sa position at nagsasabing kamatayan lang ang magkakapagpaalis sa kanila sa puwesto. Kapal ng mga balat nyo!!!! Kitang kita na ngang mga “kuto at garapata” kayo dahil sa kapal ng bulsa nyo na nasipsip nyo sa gobyerno…ayaw nyo pang umalis, gusto nyo pang ibabad pa kayo sa Kerosene….

  • cogito728sum

    Now it is very understandable why the chief witness of the defense is a CPA/Lawyer.  This witness must really be working extra hard to extrapolate every figure there is in the book to make it appear that Corona’s lies are the truth vis-a-vis this revelation of this hapless scion to one of the original heirs.  But in the attempt to justify whatever figures this defense witness will manufacture, Corona will just be sinking deeper and deeper in the quicksand of lies he has built for himself.  The prosecution need not have the caliber of a Cuevas to debunk whatever testimony, whatever figure this defense witness will put up in his cross-examination.

    To determine as to who is credible between this lady and Corona, as to who is lying and who is not, all one has to do is go back a few steps on Corona’s part, piece together every action, every utterances Corona has made especially those words involving moral rectitude and it would not be hard to build a personality profile of this man.

    “Patayin nyo muna ako kung gusto nyo akong maalis” is but one example of unprofessional, unmagisterial behaviour that tend to show the quality of Corona’s inner self.  Would it then be surprising if he would indeed poke a gun to a poor caretaker to scare and harass him.  Would he then be incapable of doing what he is perceived to have done?  What he is being tried for in the IC?

    The entire membership of the SC better access the deepest recesses of their heart for that moral courage needed to disassociate themselves from this scourge of the judiciary and the legal profession or they themselves bear the stigma Corona has wrought upon that erstwhile venerable institution. Perhaps it is only by ostracizing this thug masquerading as a primus inter pares that the Court can be relieved of this heavy liability.

    It would be interesting to read rebuttals from Ernesto Maceda, Francisco Tatad, Father Bernas, Emil Jurado, Doronilla and Tiglao. These polished writers are capable of swaying opinions but I’d listen to Rene Saguisag If I were Renato Corona. Resign now and stop the bleeding. Spare your family’s good name further embarassment, honorable chief justice sir! 

  • Lito Belizario

    May God’s justice finally come to the oppressed members of the Basa-Guidote family. Renato Corona is the perfect example of Erap’s “hoodlum in robes” character. He exemplifies the hypocrisy of power because he still wants the honor and the distinction of being a magistrate while bullying his wife’s family and making them live in fear of his hired goons. Is it any wonder that he accepted an illegal appointment from a fake president like GMA?

  • Sooosnamn

    Hmmm, may nag sulsol dito sa Ana Basa…. Timing changes things. A very very old issue between family members. Why coming out now? Ngayon questionable ang credibilidad nang stories mo dahil halatang may bahid politika!!!

    • mykmiguel

      yes, this is an old issue and the reason why she came out is because the Thief Justice mentioned that there’s money in their dissolved corporation. P11M for a cash advance and P32M from the sale of the property. Their family was surprised may pera pala!

      • Sooosnamn

        So, does this means that the prosecutions were wrong about CJ Corona’s money in his bank ay nakaw niya sa gobyerno. If it is true that Corona got these money from an old family bussiness feud.,therefore these are now considered irrelevant to the present impeachment trial?! Kasi personal na nilang manga pamilya yun.. Kaya yung pera ni Corona sa banko ay hindi ill gotten wealth from being a public official, but could be ill gotten wealth of his wife from being magulang sa manga kamaganak niya sa negosyo? I rest my case…

        Kayo mismong manga yellowtards and nag sabi niyan hindi ako… Alam ku naman iyan hinuhuli ku lang kung sinong yellowtards ang papatol..kaya may sagot na aku agad diyan…hehehehe

    whatever the reasons there will be, the biggest question that needed clarification was, why were all these properties and bank accounts including the questions on the ITRs filed for the covered years, not properly declared and disclosed…the cj will explain how all these were acquired, he will cite his previous involvements working at various prestigious law firms, corporations, receiving various large allowances while in government, etc…having also told the people that their family was not of ordinary means… but all these will be beside the point, the question will still move to non declaration and disclosures of these contested properties, bank accounts in the SALN and ITRs…

      It’s only Corona that can provide the answers, so let’s wait for his explanation.

    Nag-iisip ako bakit yun tatlong accounts ni Mr. Crown sa PS Bank ay sinasabi nyang hindi kanya at sa BGEI….Bakit naman sa kanya naka-pangalang yun mga accounts kung hindi ito sa kanya?

    Ang mga accounts na ito ay mga time deposits. Ang tanong pa ehhhh.. kanino na pupunta yun interest ng time deposit?  ehhh….Kay Mr. Crown naka-pangalang ang mga accounts…. Alangan sa BGEI mapunta yun interest ng time deposit ehh hindi naman sa kanila naka-pangalan……

    Pero hindi raw kay Mr. Crown yun pera na naka-time deposit….

    Betrayal of PUBLIC TRUST ba ito?   Ano ba tawag dito?

  • tra6Gpeche

    This is a sad story for the family of Ms. Ana Basa. Mr. Renato Corona is now very powerful. There is no way she can win her case. In the Philippines, the law is always on the side of the powerful & moneyed Filipinos. Nevertheless, this is another setback to the character of the impeached Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. As such, the Philippines does not need a Chief Justice with highly questionable character, decency & honesty. The country does not need Mr. Renato Corona to work for the Philippine government especially as the Chief Justice of the Philippine Supreme Court. Nobody is indispensable, not even Mr. Corona. He wants to be in the government to amass more money, to wield more power and to protect his benefactor and patron Mrs. Gloria Arroyo. He will definitely not serve the interest of the Philippines. Instead, Mr. Renato Corona will only serve his own evil interest & agenda.

  • Harry

    Too early to pronounce any decisions. 
    We just heard only one side of the history and, for sure, the Senate will subpoena Ana Basa for clarification on certain matters; but, of course, she will also be subject to cross-examination by the defense.
    One thing that is very clear is that Ana Basa kept insinuating Corona as the source of their family problems without producing positive proofs and this is unfair to the CJ because is no way for him to defend against insinuations.
    The final curtains for the last Act has yet to rise.

    1) I asked who was the Corporate Secretary since its the Corporate Secretary who keeps company records. Seemingly adminstratrix is not Corporate Secretary.
    2) Why she did not show any original stock holders certificates that can prove her parents and relatiives were stockholders, or even majority stockholders ?
    3) SEC was not afraid of powerful people. I recalled that during Erap’s time, 1998 to 2001, Erap cant even replace SEC Chairman.

    I recently read somewhere that 2,500 court employees reiterated their support to their embattled chief. No wonder our justice system is rotten to the core! No wonder poor people would rather go underground and go to the mountains rather than wait for justice to be served. No wonder only lawyers and justices become rich while poor litigants become poorer. If 2,500 court employees who are supposed to work for justice in our country openly supports a leader who has been proven to have no qualms about lying, conceiling vital information, using his connections and position to tip the scales of justice on his side – and still act as if he is the most holy man in the universe, can we ever hope for real justice in this country? When all this is over, and Corona has been banished from his underserved perch, it is time to cleanse the entire judiciary of misfits and hoodlooms. We will never be able to trust people who have openly supported someone so shameless, so scheming and so arrogant.

  • John TWT

    It’s difficult to judge character, especially if information comes from one source. But if you connect this with how Mrs Corona was regarded in the Camp John Hay Devt Corp (she was allegedly petitioned to be removed by all of the other directors but stayed after being rescued by GMA), then you have a glimpse of the kind of personality this person has.

    Given this, I’d be more inclined to side with Ms Anna’s version of the story.

  • noypisiTED

    One gets speechless and troubled while reading this BGEI saga. I knew that squabbles (even more serious ones than what’s taking place between the Coronas and Basa-Guidotes) do happen on families of different lineage and beliefs. “One can choose friends but not relatives” were the often gripes. No amount of success can compensate for failure in the home, so goes the saying. Chief cook, errrr… Justice Corona’s own house is on fire but he just sat idly by. That’s very unbecoming (and revolting) of the Chief cook, errrr… magistrate of the land to let injustice happen to his own family yet do nothing to put an end to it. If CJ Corona failed to take on the shoe and summon the wisdom of Solomon on such a small family irritants (in the beginning) and settle it to everyone’s satisfaction, how does he think he can be a wellspring of justice and goodwill to his fellowmen? “Don’t believe her lies!” the CJ shot back via SMS. Imagine, a court whose fetish requires heaps after heaps of briefs and motions on tons of papers, on legal size, mind you, yet its Chief cook errr…manages to answer only by text. Can’t the courts introduce innovations starting with allowing the filing of motions through text? Anyway, if CJ Corona happens to dodge conviction on all the 3 Articles of Impeachment, the nation is confident he won’t on the BGEI mess. The Chief cook, errr… justice, no less, must be the epitome of virtues yet failed to muster them and instead allow a simple “family problem” become complicated. Is this the kind of Chief cook errrr. justice the Filipino nation deserves? If only for this reason, this nonentity humbly appeals to the Promethean senator-judges: If ain’t fit, convict!

    I am anxiously awaiting how the defense will explain why BGEI funds are in Corona’s accounts.  If this explanation acquits him, it will be a template for all other SALNs of so called “honorable” government officials and the refuge of hidden maybe even ill-gotten wealth.  The explanation, after all, is the product of  brilliant legal defense lawyers, including a former Justice and  law deans.  How sad, how very sad for our country…

    So, does this means that the prosecutions were wrong about CJ Corona’s money in his bank ay nakaw niya sa gobyerno. If it is true that Corona got these money from an old family bussiness feud.,therefore these are now considered irrelevant to the present impeachment trial?! Kasi personal na nilang manga pamilya yun.. Kaya yung pera ni Corona sa banko ay hindi ill gotten wealth from being a public official, but could be ill gotten wealth of his wife from being magulang sa manga kamaganak niya sa negosyo?

    • justiceandpeaceforall

      kung hindi ninakaw sa gobyerno pero ninakaw sa pamilya nya pwede na syang pagkatiwalaan?

      meaning if Corona and his wife can do those horrible things against the members of their own family, he can do more than that with the public. Sooosnamn kailangan pa bang i-explain yan? #@%!!!

      • Sooosnamn

        Did you read my comment correctly? I said “she could be” not assuming that she directly took money from her feuding family!!! The money deposited at their bank was still considered as a corporation money not Corona’s money. Being the head of their corporation Corona’s wife is just safe keeping their assets before it get distributed. Ana Basa’s family is no longer part of the corporation and has no claim for it. Ana Basa’s family for being so greedy, has change the prime property title located near Eastwood w/c is worth 2billion pesos and owned by both her father Jose Basa and Corona’s wife mother. Ana Basa’s father created a new title removing the name of Corona’s wife mother’s name. So, sino sa tingin mo ang nagnanakaw Sa dalawang pamilya? Worth 32million pesos in the bank or worth 2billion pesos property? Away pamilya yan at they still have 3 open cases in the courts..kaya let us not base it on these yet. Manga yellowtards talaga kayo lahat nalang makita niyo kay Corona kakalkalin niyo at ibabaligtad. Puros nalang kayo propaganda nang propaganda. Justiceandpeaceforall, na explain ku na!!!! #@%!!!!!!!

      Don’t rest your case yet Sooosnamn. The P32.6M was with three accnts with one bank only. There are other accnts with that bank and the other bank also in millions plus the $$$ accnt. This does not include the condos, penthouse, lots in Alta Vista (pag-aari nila Mike Arroyo) and in Marikina, house & lot in QC, parking lots. Also, the character of the CJ must be taken into account. Gusto mo ba ang chief justice natin ay mandarambong, maluluko, siga-siga (nanutok daw ng baril sa pobreng caretaker nila Basa), power tripper? Kung kaya nya gawin sa kamag-anak kaya nyang gawin kahit kanino.

If Corona feels his guilty of one of the things he is being accused of..he would have resigned from office after the impeachment was railroaded in congress. But, with a clean conscience and balls bigger than you..had the courage to fight!!! He is not doing this just to clear his name, but to protect the people, the rule of law, the constitution, and the country from being under one man rule.

As to conscience I don’t think he has something to bet considering that he twisted the meaning of midnight into after lunch jejeje. He & his wife also twisted the arms of ma’am Tina’s relatives to have BGEI for their own. Nanutok pa nga si Otoy eh. If he was the one to protect me…salamat na lang sa iyo na.

    The integrity issue of Corona seems so glaring now with this testimony.  If this story is the real truth (which seems to be)  where  the Corona couple “oppressed”   the BASA CLAN , how easy or difficult could it be for CJ Corona not to  betray the filipino people who are not his blood relation?

    Tama yan, God is good! In His time he unveils the truth.  And, He will make a way to surface the truth.  Anna Basa, your nun aunt’s and your family’s prayers must have been heard and God ‘s response to surface the truth and give justice has to be made public (by God’s strange means such as this impeachment trial).  A great redemption is coming.  Some call this  work of KARMA!

  • I_kabod

    kung away ng pamilya ito, bakit nasa SALN ni corona ang 32M? ibig sabihin kanya na ba yun? o dapat separately naka declare yun amount as “in trust of”? lumalabas na accomplice pala si CJ?

    • PinoyConcerned888

       At bakit sa account ni corona nakalagak ang pera ng BGEI, di ba dapat sa account ng BGEI since it is a family corporation? Something fishy has gone wrong here.

  • okidoki

    A ‘CLASSIC’ filipino tale. I believe in the old saying ” walang pinsan pinsan pag PERA ang pinaguusapan !!”.The only good thing about this story: At least the Corona’s didn’t ‘kurakot’ the filipino people as a whole. They did in their own ‘family’. So what’s the big deal now?? Compared to these so called Senator/Judges who rip-off the filipino people unabated, for some of them going on for the last 30-40 years, the Corona’s saga look very ‘saintly”.

    • Jomjom

      What kind of convoluted thinking is that?  How did you know that Corona did not steal from the Filipino people? He is trying to suppress evidence (dollar account).. so I am sure maraming tinatago yan. Kung yung kamaganak kinatalo nila, eh yun pa kayang hindi?… And even assuming kamaganak lang ang ninakawan at hindi gobyerno, how can you still see that as “saintly”..

      Ill gotten wealth, ill-gotten power (midnite), ill-gotten phD, hayyy naku.. and here is what takes the cake: He is THE Chief Justice of the SUPREME Court of the Republic of the Philippines!!!

    • Anna

      Abnormal ka pala! Eh sariling pamilya nga nya ninakawan, ang taong bayan pa kaya na di nya kakilala!

      • okidoki

        Abno??..speak for yourself!!! Am basing my comments on the printed interview of Basa and PDI.  (Isn’t it THE basis for all these comments???) Anyway, If you are suggesting that the Corona’s ripped of the filipino people,, none of that was ever discussed in this particular interview at all. And for you to suggest that, is pure speculation on your part. Still, nice try!! 

  • Jomjom

    These are new revelations that cannot be used in the present impeachment. If Corona is acquitted (I think he can get at least 8 senators: Joker, Miriam, Marcos, Revilla, Villar, Enrile, Sotto, Jinggoy, Escudero, Honasan.. even Legarda, Pia)… lets just wait next year for a new impeachment.. this time well crafted, more evidence, etc. Yung panunutok ng baril sa pobreng caretaker pwedeng isali. Pwedeng gawin witness yon, at saka si Ana Basa.. wala ng lusot yang si Corona.

  • Mac Navora

    hindi nga nakaw na pera mula sa gobyerno.. pero nakaw na pera sa sariling kamag-anak.. napaka-dupang tlga ng mga ito.. pati sariling kamag-anak gugulangan pa.. sna nga Ms. Ana Basa, makakuha ka ng Justice againts them..

  • Dagxawin

  • w4d

    These are very explosive revelations from Ms. Basa. Very damaging especially coming from a relative that has had first hand knowledge of the inner dealings of the firm. Now, I really would love to read an article from the PDI; a reply-interview from the Coronas’ regarding this matter, ASAP.

    This issue is outside the impeachment trial, so hopefully, the Coronas’ won’t plead the 5th to the interview.

  • sonic99363

    kaya pala ganun na lang ang support na binibigay ng mga supreme court employees kay cj corona eh marami daw dun co-terminus kay cj. ergo, pag nawala si cj ala na rin silang trabaho. eh ang perks and benifits paano na? yung kakilala ko nga na lawyer kpapasok lng sa supreme court last year mag amortize na sana ng brand new car kaya lang, halt na muna ang pagbili kasi baka masipa si cj sa puwesto. 

  • Joaquin Fernandez

    Here is another revelation about the character and integrity of the Coronas. The conjugal greed became the motivation to even cheat on relatives. What else do we need to know? What proof is there to be uncovered when every turn of events we see the fingerprint of the couple manipulating even court decisions for selfish interest. If and when Cristina takes the witness stand, prosecution must present Ana and her mom, possibly Sister Flor to controvert whatever version of their story regarding the P34.7M payment of Manila City government to the real property of the BGEI company.

    I’m sure Corona and his gang of hoodlums will try to do a demolition job on Ana’s character and try to divert the issues. They have called Ana a liar and questioned the timing of the revelation.

    IMHO, Ana is more believable than Corona. Timing is a non-issue since the stockholders of BGEI have consistently informed the public of the conspiratorial nature of the couple. It’s just only now that it reached the headlines.

    The money they stole from BGEI will be used by the defence to explain where Corona got his millions. Meriam will create a firewall so that the BGEI issue will not be used against Corona. If BGEI will be used as the source of the funds, then the senators can question issues related to BGEI. However, there is a case pending so they will be prevented to discuss the merits of the case. I hope senators can see through the firewall and vote to convict.

  • jgl414567

    It’s worth knowing if the Renato Corona who went to the judge’s chamber before the Basa hearing started was the Renato Corona of Malacanang or the one already an associate justice of the Supreme Court? If the account of Ms. Ana Basa is true, Mr. Corona personifies the word corruption both interms of power and money.

  • snickle

    I took this from the SC Public Information Office about Justice Renato C. Corona

    “His judicial philosophy is centered on his commitment to uphold the Constitution and the law in order that the rights of every man, woman and child are protected and enhanced.  When the voice of the weak and the oppressed is inaudible and unheeded, he believes that every effort must be exerted to provide them a forum where they can be heard and their rights recognized. 
    His personal advocacies include the formation of strong moral and ethical values in the legal profession, specially among the young lawyers. ”
    Very alarming as to what Ms Ana Basa reiterated who really this person was.

       Ganon din kasi ang sumatutal, kaya di sya nagresign kasi sa tingin nya makakalusot pa sya dahil sa magagaling nyang abogagong kaya syang pagtakpan at proteksyunan. At isa kaya nga sya tinaguriang Thief Injustice kasi he knows his law at kapag umiral ang kanyang law, siguradong mapagtatakpan ang katotohanan at maaacquit sya. Kung magre-resign naman sya, makakasuhan din sya at mapapatalsik din naman sa tungkulin so pinili na lang nya tong impeachment para habang under process pa ang impeachment may power pa sya sa Supreme Court na i-control at may time pang linisin ang mga documentong against sa kanya.

Hindi talaga karapat dapt siya maging Chief Justice, kasi Thief Justice siya at Cheap Justice! Pati pamilya sa asawa niya ina api dahil sa kapangyarihan.

  • zidyay

    Family feud is commonly both a messy and unpredictable matter. Not only that all the facts and reasons behind the conflict are brought out and made known accurately to the public but, there is also the prospect of settlement of the rift in the future because parties involved are related by blood. Therefore I will not comment who is at fault or make any judgement on Corona and his wife who are being badly accused here.

    Where I would like to make a comment on is about the very strong possibility of additional lawsuit from the Basa family that Corona may have to face right after being convicted or removed from the SC. One already has been filed against him  at the Ombudsman by Rep. Bello and law students from UP and Ateneo. BIR is prepared to file another soon regardless of the outcome in the Senate. And there are certainly many more to come. Corona is inside a deep rut right now he may never make to extricate himself out. He is destined to condemnation as well as to oblivion unless perhaps he resigns and sincerely admits his sins and asks forgiveness from the relatives of his wife but more importantly from the Filipino people he fooled and betrayed for so long.

  • Bad_Ong

    In 2001 on Renato Corona’s nomination to a vacant seat in the Supreme Court Ana Basa’s father wrote the JBC to oppose it in order, as per Jose Maria Basa III, “to save the SC from discredit and disrepute.” He also warned that Corona “will not be capable of rendering fair and just decisions as he has not exhibited such character” in connection with his actions regarding BGEI

    True as it appear in Justice Sereno’s dissenting opinion Mr Corona has molded the TRO to favor his benefactor GMA and to what’s happening now with the SC being drag to shame by the impeached Chief Justice. Add it now this more details mischief character by the CJ..

    Indeed, credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being!

    It is really about time for the Basa family to fight for what belongs to them.  Now, your family is not alone.  The Filipino people are behind you in this fight.  Actually, we thank you for coming out.  This is KARMA.  Renato Corona and Christina Corona have long been acting as if they are gods to abuse their own family.  They are a typical example of people who believe in “WHAT ARE WE IN POWER FOR?”  How can the Basa’s win any of their court cases when all the justices are under CORONA’S command and influence.  I hope people who read this will not doubt the sincerity of Ann Basa and support her cause.  Now is the only time her family can be assured of fairness.  Maybe all the money in Corona’s bank account belong after all to the aggrieved Basa family.

    ;  when one of you has a grievance against a brother, does he dare go to law before the unrighteous instead of saints? Do you not know that the saint will judge the world? And if the world will be judge by you, are you incompetent to try unimportant cases? Do you not know that we are to judge angels? How much more, matters pertaining to this life! If then you have such cases, why do you lay them before those who are least esteemed by the church? I say this to your shame. Can it be that there is no man among you wise enough to decide between members of the brotherhood, but brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbeliever? To have lawsuit at all with one another is a defeat for you. 1 cor. 6:1-7
    paul is reminding the group of believers,,, why present your case to a corrupt judge (like CORONA)? oo nga naman,,, bakit pupunta kayo sa judge na pwedeng suhulan? talo na kayo sabi ni paul,,sabi ni paul wala ba kayong pastor na pwedeng mamagitan?

    • PinoyConcerned888

       Agree ako sa sinabi mo simon…sino kaya ang maipapako sa Cross ngayon? Ang katotohanan ba or si Corona? Kapag naipako ang Truth instead of Corona patuloy na magsa-suffer ang mga mamamayang Filipino at patuloy na kawalan ng hustisya ang mananaig. 2000 years ago, the truth has been nailed to the cross. The law of men nailed the Truth who is Jesus Christ to the cross headed by the teachers of the Law – the Pharisees and the Saducees.

  • nycnoypits

    Corona is caught lying thru his teeth. He says Ana is not a stockholder but of course when the parent dies, the heirs take over the property. He admits that there are the BGEI cases and he has nothing to do with an inheritance issue, but he admits to being the lawyer for Cristina in the BGEI cases. Then he admits to receiving a cash advance from BGEI even though the case is still pending per his interviews. This instead of having the monies go to an escrow account. It was an excuse to explain how the expensive condos were financed or purchased. 

    Ana, Pinoys all over the world are with you.

  • okabato

    Accountability is a quality rarely found in public service in the Philippines. Pnoy is trying to put it back and he is facing a brick wall that seems insurmountable now that he is under threat of being forced out of office thru a civilian military takeover led by personalities he is trying to send to jail for their wrongdoings to the filipino people. It’s not easy to have as enemies a corrupt ex- president and former chiefs of police and military on the take and a sitting chief justice. I say good luck to you Pnoy.

    • PinoyConcerned888

      May God protects Pnoy and may He bless Pnoy on his advocacy to good governance, since this must be done first before anything else. almost all sectors of governments, the military, police, supreme court has been long attacked and infiltrated by unscrupulous pest of corruption headed by GMA.

    • GreenStallion

      Yes precisely that’s why we Filipinos should support wholeheartedly PNOY’s abvocacies rather attack, contradicts and making false statements against PNOY’s dreamed of this country. We should be one in attaining this dream of good governance, zero corruptions, etc.Our direction must be harmonized in one direction not the other way around. That’s why until now our country could not take off because sadly many of us are still not that serious of reforming this country, they still like the old way (w/out noticing it).

    The root of all the sufferings and shame of the Coronas is “GREED”. 

    GREED for money, that is why they took control of BGEI as if they own it and took control of its funds;

    GREED for material things, that is why they acquired a lot of real properties bought by monies they cannot explain where it came from;

    GREED for power, that is why Renato Corona accepted a questionable appointment as CJ to wield power over the judiciary; and

    GREED is KARMA that will bring RENATO and CRISTINA CORONA down.  Even when they are gone, their children will still feel the brunt of the SHAME their parents brought to them.

We can understand and sympathize with the acquittal votes of joker, miriam and bongbong but not the other senator-judges. This would be the height of an unforgivebable sin of mental bankruptcy if they will let cj corona walk away just like that.

    The national interests and patrimony of the Republic of the Philippines is paramount and supreme over and above any personal interest more so of cj corona. Complete overhaul and no-nonsense judicial reforms start with the present supreme court of the Philippines. Nothing more. Nothing less.

    Three monuments will rise at the corner of Padre Faura, Manila. A bronze replica of a small lady holding a brown envelope, a lawyer holding both his hands to cover his ears and a pretty lady named Ana Basa. This monuments will symbolize that nothing can be more Supreme than the voice of God through its people! 
    Vox populi, vox dei. 

  • iamph

    Let KARMA work its way to its SOURCE! How happy the Filipino will be if TRUE JUSTICE will prevail! You CORONAS, tell the TRUTH! For heaven’s sake!!!!

  • Anna_Banana76

    This needs to end now! We must not tolerate “demons” hiding behind robes in the Supreme Court. If this continues, it will be the end of everything that is true and fair. Huwag gamitin ang sobrang katalinuhan para man lamang ng tao! 

  • mmm choco

    nga engot kayo- di naman eto kasama sa case ni people.. let the senate decide.. not the people.. you voted for them.. now you wait for their decisions. 

    • Swee

      It’s like you are so sure that Corona will be acquitted. Don’t be so presumptuous.

    • bea3z

      hindi kasama? sa diba nga according to corona yung mga pera nya sa bangko ay pera ng BGEI corporation at kaya nya daw inilagay sa pangalan nya ay para ma secure ang money dahil sa may mga kaso pa ang BGEI. at the same date ng unang araw ng impeachment nya ay winithdraw nya lahat ang pera sa 3 accounts nya tapos idiniposit nya rin the same day in a new kahapon lang sa UH ay iba na naman ang dahilan nya kung bakit nya winithdraw ang pera dahil daw sa nawalan sya ng “trust” sa bangko..pero dun nya parin idiniposito ibang account na nga lang..huling huli na sa bibig nya ang kanyang pagsisinungaling.

    • cion

      Among the comments of my kababayan , you’re the only one who understands that Ana Basa is taking this issue  to the public, which is not right, this is a family dispute regarding their inheritance, and the impeachment is about the job perfomance of the CJ in the Supreme Court, it’s not about their family issue,

      • pinklace88

        isa ka pa naman hindi marunong mag analyze, this isn’t just talking about the family issue, eh pakialam nga ng senate impeachment court kung magsabunutan yang magkakamag anak na yan, ang pinag uusapan eh ung pagsabit ni Corona sa BGEI na pag aari ng mga kamag anak ng asawa nya. anung papel nya at yan ang idinadahilan nyang source ng pera nyas a banko at pinambili ng condo. sinu ba ang sumawsaw di ba si Corona?? isinawsaw nya ang sarili nya sa BGEI na yan ngaun pahinog siya…

  • mmm choco

    calling pulis – may  arrest warrant – pala etong nga eto.. arrest this ana basa.. please.

    • Swee

      If there is, they can post bail I’m sure. Hoy! Hindi na raw matatakot sa si Ana. Galit at lalaban na. I hope she testifies before the impeachment court. Para lalong madiin si Corona. Whaah!

  • mmm choco

    people dont read much do they?? they ( basa family) was found guilty of libel.. !!!  get it??  duhhhhh

    • Swee

      Then what about it? So what? duhhhh?

  • whammyy

     I salute you Ana Basa.  The road to truth and righteousness will never be easy. But don’t worry, my dear.  Bilog ang mundo.  Natural laws, those that we call ‘karma,’ will ultimately bring justice for those trespasses inflicted on you and your family that you never obtained in our courts of law.
    Malapit na ang katapusan ng paghahari-harian ng mga Corona at sila naman ang mamimighati nang masahol pa sa ginawa nila sa inyo.

    • romeo solina

      Huwag kang kasisiguro… marami pang senador-husgado na kampi kay Corona. Isa na diyan si Bongbong… at saka si Miriam at Joker. Tatlo na ‘yan, lima na lang ang kulang. Tingnan natin kung matatanggal nga siya sa Korte Suprema.

      • pinklace88

        hahaha.. alam na alam mo sinung mga senador na kampi kay Corona, bakit kaya? what d they have in common?

      • simon

        kahit na sampu pa, hindi natin alam pwedeng mangyari, kasi hindi naman tayo Diyos. para sa akin, marami gusto ang tao pero sa bandang huli kagustuhan parin ng Diyos ang masusunod.

  • Swee

    My wish is for you to testify in the impeachment court. The truth shall set you all free.

  • dipakosigurado

    Hahaha, it smells of the law firm floating this woman out of the woodworks now…shameless!

  • indiosbravos2002

    No wonder walang panalo mga Basa sa kaso nila. Lutong luto ni Corona sa judge pa lang.

  • rockinLeon

    The best part of the interview:
    PDI: How come Corona was able to take out a loan from BGEI when it was already dissolved?
    BASA: That’s what we would like to know. We really want to get some answers. I think they said that they were paying back the loans. To whom are they paying back? Let’s say they borrowed money from BGEI, and are paying back, where are they depositing the payments?

  • taureangirl24

    Now this is what you call “Karma”..Everything you do whether good or bad you will be accountable…I still do believe that the truth will set you free, & God will never permit that evil deeds will prevail. This is unexpected revelation…

  • Tito_Ces

    Why is there no mention of Eastwood property sold by the Ana Basa family for P2 billion which they did not share with Mrs. Corona? This family feud is typical of every rich family in PHL fighting over sharing of family wealth like the case of Madrigal, etc. It’s clear the P34 million is not CJ Corona’s money but the wife’s.

    • simon

       dapat inalam mo na rin kanino binagbili at kailan pinagbili at sino ang nagbenta para kompleto.

      • Tito_Ces

        Gusto mo palang malaman eh bakit hindi mo alamin at kailangan ako pa ang magsabi sa yo. Ano ka maswerte.
