‘Silent witness’ for Corona: Cousin’s bonsai forest

By |


THE SILENT WITNESS FOR THE DEFENSE. As one of the country’s top bonsai artists, defense witness Demetrio Vicente welcomes the Inquirer to the bonsai forest of about 2,000 mini trees on Gen. Ordoñez Street, Marikina Heights village in Marikina City, which he claims as his witness for Chief Justice Renato Corona, who is accused, among other things, of owning the property where his creations have been thriving for the past 21 years. MARIANNE BERMUDEZ

To those who doubt if he’s really the owner of the questioned 3,400-square-meter Marikina Heights lot, impeachment trial witness Demetrio Vicente “invokes” his miniature creations as “witness.”

The 70-year-old cousin of impeached Chief Justice Renato Corona shows off his bonsai collection as proof that he owns the property that prosecutors argue still belongs to the magistrate now on trial.

“They can’t say this property is Corona’s. If I were merely a caretaker, how would this bonsai have roots like that?” said Vicente in Filipino, pointing to an aged bonsai with roots clawed firmly on the ground.

Vicente also said he’s the one paying for the lot’s real property tax.

Since acquiring the property almost 22 years ago, Vicente, once the country’s top bonsai artist, has filled the once empty lot with thousands of miniature trees, his collection hitting 3,000 in his heyday.

Hobby therapy

Now, he is looking after 2,000 bonsai pots—demanding wards that need constant watering, trimming, cutting and wiring. It may be a tough job for a senior citizen, but the enthusiast has no complaints.

“The hobby is very interesting. It’s alive,” Vicente said of crafting bonsai plants. “It’s not like a painting that can be set aside when you finish it.”

“Even if one tree has been adjudged as the best in a competition, you have to water it, wire it, trim it and use insecticide, fertilizer, fungicide. That’s why it’s very challenging,” he said.

The hobby served as his therapy and helped him recover from strokes he suffered in 2009 and 2010, said Vicente, a diabetic and hypertensive.

“I would walk little by little, trim the bonsai little by little,” said Vicente.

“It’s a different feeling when you are able to create something. You know that it won’t always look beautiful so you have to be careful in growing the leaves and branches,” he said.

The pastime was not that costly, he said, except for a bit of expense on fertilizers and water.

Moving to the Marikina property in 1990 gave Vicente the space he needed to pursue the hobby he had taken on years before.

Then a businessman renting out heavy machinery in Quezon City, Vicente was first drawn to cultivating bonsai some 30 years ago, when a friend introduced him to the art.

“I started with a few then I got more and more,” Vicente said.

Just as he was closing down his business in Quezon City, Vicente said he learned through an agent about the Marikina Heights lot and got interested in buying. He said he did not know the property belonged to his second cousin’s wife, Cristina Corona, and her sister Miriam Roco.

“I frequented this place … then I learned through a broker that this was for sale,” said Vicente.

He purchased the property for P1.018 million and constructed a house from scratch, he said.

“There was nothing here except for that big mango tree there,” said Vicente, pointing to the towering tree on one side of the lot.

“Then I constructed a house. I rented a house on the other block while this was being constructed. It took me four months before I moved in and it was still unfinished,” he said.

The only hitch was, even if he got the deed of sale, he still has not transferred the property to his name. Making that transfer today, 22 years after buying the property, would cost him P200,000 in penalties, Vicente said. He currently pays P35,000 in real property tax every year and he has all the building permits.

Vicente graciously welcomed the Inquirer into his Marikina home and garden on Friday while joking about his unflattering photos that appeared on the paper’s front page the day before.

Readers had complained that the photos, which showed Vicente’s different facial expressions on the witness stand, were offensive and insensitive to the subject, a stroke survivor. The Inquirer apologized, to which Vicente replied: “Apology accepted. Wala naman sa akin ’yun (That’s nothing).”

Slice of a quiet park

The house on Gen. Ordoñez Street in Marikina Heights may look plain from the outside at first glance: A red gate splitting a high wall, with some strands of vines cascading toward the street.

But once the gate opens, a lush garden welcomes the guest, almost like a slice of a quiet park.

The winding mossy adobe pathway is flanked on both sides by rows upon rows of bonsai pots, like green sculptures of different shapes and sizes. Most are varieties of the banyan tree while others are miniature camachile, kamuning, kulasi and Vicente’s prize-winning creation, a callos bonsai.

Fruit-bearing guava, macopa and mango trees dot his property, along with other ornamental plants. On one side, he keeps a few Japanese bantam chickens, which he turns his attention to during breaks from his bonsai.

In the middle of the property is his airy red-brick home, which he now shares with Estrelita, his “first and only wife” of 46 years. Their only daughter, 44-year-old Josefina Victoria, has long been away from home, working as confectionery chef in different parts of the Middle East.

“O, ganyan ba ang mayaman (Are the rich like that)?” Vicente joked.

It was near sunset but none of the lights were on. There was no television set in the living room, just simple old furniture, some bonsai picture books and family photos.

There was an old split-type air-conditioner, but Vicente was quick to the draw and said in Filipino: “You know why I never turn that on? Because it’s hot.  It’s too hot for me to pay for the power bill.”

In the open garage, there was an old green box-type Toyota and an early model of the Nissan Cefiro. He rarely drove since he suffered a stroke, Vicente said, but would sometimes do runs around the block.

The house is never completely quiet, though. Vicente’s Pomeranian Vine and bulldog Paj would at times have barking bouts, while his pair of cockatoos Inno and Bikoy would sometimes blurt out “hello.”

He devoted the upper floor of his house solely for his plants, which has remained unroofed so they would always catch the rain.

“A month before I enter competitions, I would be up till 3 a.m. or 4 a.m. trimming my bonsai. I just need music and lights and I do my job,” said Vicente.

2-time champ

Among his favorite plaques are a special citation from a bonsai competition in Japan in 1999 and a collection of seven trophies from a single competition in the Philippines in 1997.

“Out of the top 10 bonsai, seven were mine,” he said proudly.

The two-time Philippine bonsai champ last competed in an ornamental landscape exhibit in 2009, when he won second place. He is now pleased with just tending to his collection at home with the assistance of a helper.

Now living a retiree’s life, Vicente and his wife earn their keep from their 10-door apartment in Quezon City and receive regular remittance from their daughter.

Asked if he would sell some of his creations, Vicente said with a naughty grin: “If the price is right.”

  • rnoldrmada

    The prosecution might have stumbled on the wrong witness here. This seems like a guy who’s honest and sincere about being the real owner of the property at issue in the impeachment. Perhaps the prosecution has been overzealous in fingering Vicente as the frontman of the Coronas.
    I say leave the guy in peace and let him enjoy his remaining years with his true love….his family and bonsai collections.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/KISP4XFWDO7PMCBCIAG5XEYQ7M Peregrino Natividad

      Vicente remembered that himself and the Coronas went to Makati (of all places) to have the land sale notarised there… and again he does not know the name of the attorney. (But the prosecution traced that the Attorney is a bogus one). Did Renato arranged the deal with this said Attorney concealing his intentions?

      • TimeTraveller123

        Because a place is easier to remember than a name of a person. Especially since he said he used to go to Makati a lot and ride his bicycle. Ikaw ba naman, if they ask you to name all your classmates in school maalala mo kaya? Of course maybe, maybe not. But the likelihood is very slim compared to naming the name of your school.

    “He said he did not know the property belonged to his second cousin’s wife, Cristina Corona, and her sister Miriam Roco.”

    Hmm.. interesting.. when he was at the witness stand he said that he did not bother to transfer the titles to his name because the owner is a sort of a family member to him. Btw, it’s not an impossible task to relocate 2000 bonsai pots just to make the land appear to be his.

      read again so you can understand what he said, which is consistent with what he said during the trial

      kabayan, balikan mo ulit ang article… kahit ingles ang pagkasulat, very simple naman …

      hindi n’yan alam kung sino ang me ari bago n’ya bilhin … is that so difficult to comprehend?

      o sigue…. sinungaling si mr. vicente .. galing n’yang actor .. in fact hindi nagka stroke ‘yong matanda … niloko lang ang impeachment court para makuha ang simpatiya ng mga senador  …. mga manloloko talaga ang mga hindi kampi ke penoy ano?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/KISP4XFWDO7PMCBCIAG5XEYQ7M Peregrino Natividad

        Instead Vicente said “the real estate broker offered him the land”. He was asked which real estate agent was that?… and he conveniently forget.( I bought some parcel of land in Cebu long time ago.. and the name of the agent I know him by heart. Plus my agent wrote his name and address in my documents).

      • TimeTraveller123

        Magkaiba po kayo siguro ni Mr. Vicente, maaring makakalimutin siya maaring hindi kayo makakalimutin. People are unique, hindi mo puwedeng dahil hindi mo nakalimutan name ng agent mo ay hindi na dapat makalimutan ng iba. Atsaka he is 70 years old, a stroke survivor. Ikaw Sir, how old are and naistroke ka na ba?  Hehehehe

      • TGM_ERICK

        Don’t worry, the broker will be found.   There’s nothing wrong with forgetting that fact,

    • kawawang_bansa

      they managed to relocate “aged bonsai with roots clawed firmly on the ground” in a matter of 3 months? corona’s team is that good at special effects?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDXEVEFHW2ZT5VWHDWBNM6XGE4 RyanE

        In some countries, they even relocate full-grown huge trees and not just bonsai..

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/KISP4XFWDO7PMCBCIAG5XEYQ7M Peregrino Natividad

      After the land sale transaction was made, Vicente believed that he now owns the property. He said “he did not have it transferred to the buyer because he run out of money. Next question was: Did Vicente voluntarily approved that Christina Corona will continue paying for “land tax”?  The record in Marikina Assessor’s Office will show who had been paying “Tax Declaration” of that said property.

  • http://twitter.com/edgarcia53 Eduardo P. Garcia

    Pity are the meek who are being used as fodders for the beast. Mr Vicente was unwittingly used by the defense because with his look and demeanor he will gain public symphaty. But be wary of beast in sheep clothing. No matter how hard you hide your falasy, truth will pounce on you when you least expect it. There is no  better alibi than the truth.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_J7CZYPZWNB37S6GTPBJQF6Y7BM Fight D Bigots

      He just testified to tell the truth: that the prosecution was wrong about including his property into Corona’s. If that in the process favors the defense, that’s not their problem. That’s the problem of the prosecution who railroaded the process and simply used their number to lodge a lousy case against Corona.

    • pangitbudhiko

      yes, the truth will set you free. and that was what Mr. Vicente showed. No amount of pressure from the likes of Drilon, Trillanes rattled mr. Vicente.

      As I have said on this forum, That I have seen witnesses in trial here in Canada and in the Philippines being grilled by the prosecution, when a witness is telling the truth, his/her answer will alway be the same

  • EdgarEdgar

    That’s what happens when the likes of Noynoy and his persecution crew jump into hasty conclusions without doing due diligence. With the congressional epals mostly in their 40s and the president at 52, their lackadaisical work habits and unimpressive work ethic are difficult to change at this point in their lives. Too bad their constituents will  have to put up with them until the next election. How difficult is it to check a house in Marikina Heights, which is not really that far from Xavierville?

  • donvitoandolini

    It’s been 22 years and after two strokes why have you not bothered to transfer the property in your name Mr. Vicente? You cannot make a bonsai out of the tree of truth.

    • Alajero

      …for an ailing person…ownership paper is not a priority…it’s a filipino tradition to trust our relationship…to our peril most of the time…but, it is still a way of life…
      …as is common…most of our ancestral lands are still recorded under the name of our ancestors…

    • EdgarEdgar

      ‘you cannot make a bonsai out of the tree of truth’

      He just did. His bonsais are too numerous to be staged. His bonsai roots are too deep to be a recently acquired. His bonsai competition prizes are too numerous that even the first and second secretary of the Japanese Embassy along Roxas Boulevard are familiar with Mr. Vicente. And even the Ikebana Club of Japanese expats are familiar with him. Now that’s the veritable Mr. Vicente. Unlike the yellow poisonous tree, his bonsais are testament to truth, beauty, simplicity and longevity.

      • TGM_ERICK

        The anti Coronas are wondering why he isn’t able to transfer the lots to his name until now.  Don’t they know that he had stroke twice and having a bonsai hobby   is expensive and with that big  hobby and property  he needs one or two hands for upkeep.

    this is refreshing change from pdi. nakakalungkot lang na ang karamihan ng nagko-comments ay tungkol pa rin sa impeachment ang puna. Bagay sa isang taong walang tiwala walang paliwanag ang magiging sapat para mabago ang pananaw. I-appreciate na lang natin ang simpleng buhay ng isang taong mayroong karamdaman na ang gusto lang ay libangin ang sarili sa natitirang panahon sa lupa. Tantanan nyo na ang walang kwentang puna.

  • RJ

    Those Bonzai don’t prove anything who is the real owner of the property. For all we know, he is a resident caretaker of the property which explains he is living there the past 22 years. 
        The reason that he has no money to spend for the transfer of ownership after 22 years is just a mere excuse on the part of Mr. Vicente. Did he ever think that if he dies now as he is very old, since he did not transfer ownership of this property to his name, his wife and his daughter will have more difficulty in claiming this property for them as heirs. Gusto bang mamatay ni Mr. Vicente na hindi man lang nailipat ang property niya sa mga anak niya?
        Did he ever think na pag nawala na ciya, dahil hindi niya nilipat sa name niya ang property eh baka matulad sa BGEI ang property na ariin ulit ni Cristina Corona?
        After 22 years parang napakababaw ata reason niya bat di nililipat sa name niya yung property. Hindi man niya iniisip family niya pag pumanaw siya kung gaaon kalaki problem na ibibigay ng property na ipapamana niya. Wake up Mr. Vicente. Sana bago matapos impeachment, makita man lang namin na nakalipat na sa name mo yung property para maalis doubt namin kung sino real owner nito.
        By the way, why did the prosecution not checked the notary affixed in the Deed of Seal if the series is affixed 22 years ago or baka recently lang. Pwede namang ma check yun sa Notary Book ng lawyer nila.

    make sure that he owns the place lock, stock and barrel. Obviously,
    this property does not belong to him – and Demetrio will never be the owner of this
    property, which is firmly in the hands and the name of Renato and Cristina
    Corona, and Demetrio is merely being used for their evil scheme
    of trying to say they’re not the owner anymore, but all the legal
    papers attest that they indeed are, and intend to remain as the real declared
    owners.
     
    Besides, you won’t hear any complaint or lawsuit from Demetrio
    when the Coronas in future want him to transfer his bonzai to another
    location.
     
    He’s not the owner of the place. That’s why.
     
    And no more publicity for this nincompoop liar please. It’s abetting his
    ruse, in what’s become an open secret with the Corona couple – an
    insult to any intelligent man, woman or even child.

      Vicente confessed that for nearly 20 years he and the Coronas NEVER have made contacts with each other. I find this strange. I asked this question when originally they were very close friend and relative. The absence of communication between them could mean, I supposed,  that Vicente felt being cheated with that land deal. That is my mode of thinking Right or Wrong?

    as a bonsai afficionado myself, and had visited many bonsai growers and retailers from cavite, rizal  and northern luzon provinces, i usually inquires from the bonsai growers and retailers i met, if they have grown their specimen from the seeds .  and the usual answers are they bought from the people whom they hires to roamed and collected their specimens from the wild.  meaning the bonsai are collected from the forested hills surrounding their villages.

    judging from the pictures of mr. vicente’s bonsai specimens, it would took him 50yrs. to grow and create the desired forms to most of his prize collections.  did he grew the bonsai trees in his collections or it was collected from the wilds?

    either way, the collections are all in great form and symmetry. 

    • tadasolo

      he still did not have time to place that property under his name but have time last 22 years to meticulously tend to those bonsai trees. Does not make sense to me that explanation and beside those bonsai can be transported anywhere easy and for them to make it appear they belong there is ridiculous

  • Beguine

    Simpletons don’t know and will never know why Demetrio
    is not the owner of the property of the Coronas he claims
    to have purchased, but will not, will never be put in his name.

    Put this property in Demetrio Vicente’s name all the way to
    being the declared owner in the amillar, and that will
    settle everything.   

    Then, we can smile at Demetrio’s bonzai and congratulate
    him for putting one over the Coronas.

  • Beguine

    Simpletons don’t know and cannot figure out why
    Demetrio Vicente does not, and will never own the
    property belonging to the Coronas.

    Put this property in Demetrio Vicente’s name all the way
    the the amillar as declared owner, and this whole thing
    will be settled. No more quibbles and debate over who is
    the owner.

    Demetrio will be richer for sure, and the Coronas a bit
    poorer.

    Demetrio will be laughing all the way to the bank, and
    the Coronas will be shedding real tears of regret
    that their bluff has made them lose this property
    for real, if that should ever happen.

    Twenty-two years ago, somewhere in the early 1990’s, you buy more than one million pesos  worth of property and you would want it transferred in your name immediately. How much would it cost for the “new owner” to get the title during those times, I have no clue but it would not be like what it is now, (P220,000.00).  Had it not be known to the public’s attention, will Mr. Vicente be able to realize to have it transferred under his name now?  Common sense would tell us that getting the title to such a very important property is of paramount importance.  If he can pay the annual property tax for the last 22 years, which is a given responsibility, why not the expense for the title?  In the short or long run of it losing the property not having a title to it is more risky to say the least than “not” paying the property tax or be delayed in paying for it.  Also, being a proud champion and meticulous Bonzai grower why would he allow some of it to root on the ground?  If at all he could only be called “an owner by possession”.  So if the “real owner”,(by title) kicks him out of the house it would show that he doesn’t own the property. Just like the relationship between a mortgagor and a mortgagee.To me his “ownership” is highly suspect.

      Vicente said “the real estate broker offered him the land”. He was asked which real estate agent was that?… and he conveniently forget.( I bought some parcel of land in Cebu long time ago.. and the name of the agent I know him by heart. Plus my agent wrote his name and address in my documents).

  • donvitoandolini

    The ” not so silent ” witness of the people is the deed of absolute sale notarized by a non-commissioned notary public in Makati, and the non-annotation of the same document at the back of the transfer of certificate of title.

    Isn’t it odd that we have to rely on mere bonsai collections as proof of land ownership instead of legal documents and instrumentalities as required by law?

  • tadasolo

    those bonsai trees can be transported anywhere but the paper trail cannot. coronas lies and deceit is again taking center stage and now is using bonsai trees as an excuse. what an idiot would buy a property twenty years ago and not have it under his name and spend meticulous amount of time perfecting and tending delicate bonsai trees and not have time to place that property under his name. again this is a testament to the illogical way corona does his business. corona and his lawyers are mistaking Filipinos as FOOLS and think we will buy it

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_I4H2WMHPSR6JGHOTMDLUA6QYHU Observer18

    So, how does that prove that the property really belongs to Vicente and not with the Coronas? It still doesn’t rid of the doubt and suspicion that Vicente is just a dummy owner. Unless the title is under the name of Vicente, he doesn’t own the property. Does Renato Corona really think the people are naive and he can fool everyone?

      In year 2009, all of a sudden the Coronas made a surprised visit to Vicente inquiring the Deed of Sale. This was the time when rumours of Impeachment of Corona came out. (Vicente claimed he do not read newspaper or neither has he a television in his house.) What sort of deal Corona offered to the old man? Was Vicente thoroughly briefed by Corona what to say in the witness stand and  claim openly the ownership of that land with certain monitary promises if he cooperates?. Being uneducated, he did not really comprehend what he is doing to give in to the cunning Renato for the second time. Enrile made a point that “when Vicente  dies this property will not be inherited by his wife or daughter”.  

      • TimeTraveller123

        Sir, year 2012 po noong nagpunta sila Corona sa bahay ni Mr. Vicente. Kahit sinong expert sa pagkilatis sa witness, sasabihin na hindi nagsisinunangaling si Mr. Vicente. In fact even some Senators said that he really is very candid with his statements.  Makikita naman ninyo sa pagsagot niya, he is very consistent, very relaxed. Kung mali man ang ginagawa niya dahil hindi niya naitransfer ang lupa sa name niya then pagkakamali niya iyon. Pero naiintindihan ko rin ang situation niya. Sabi nga ni Sen. Ralph Rector, almost 90% ng mga lupa sa Pilipinas have thesame status tulad ng status ng lupa ni Mr. Vicente. And maraming reason, exchange between relatives, walang pang transfer etc. and Mr. Vicente cited both. Atsaka makikita mo naman matanda na siya, how much did he say he is making/ getting per month? 25,000 pesos per month. Pangkain niya, kuryente, tubig, at 2 sila or maybe more sa bahay nila ng asawa niya, plus iyong maintenance medicine niya. Madaling magsalita pero reasonable naman ang sinasabi niya. Atsaka puwede naman itransfer sa mga anak niya ito kahit mamatay siya, dadaan nga lang sa mas mahirap na prosesso. Sana kaunting respeto lang naman, desisyon niya na hindi itransfer sa name niya so let’s end it there.

    Mr. Vicente bought the property 22 years ago, he got the deed of sale yet the property still under Christina Corona’s name…..doesn’t make sense.  And Mr. Vicente was saying he owns the property.  I hope when Mr. Vicente die, there’s not going to be any squabbling between the two families.  Considering that’s always the case when money and properties are concerns, between related relatives and also as far as inheritance is concern……really, this doesn’t make sense if you ask me.  And Mr. Vicente said he trusted his cousin.  Mrs. Corona and the Basa-Guidote clan were all related and looks what happened to them.  They became enemies because of money and properties.  And Mr. Vicente was talking trusting the Coronas.  This is a lousy piece of evidence if you ask me just to depend Mr. Corona.  There’s no logic to it if we’re talking about truth….the defense can do better than this……..

      TRUE, so what shall we do, start somewhere, here in USA, we only have to sign documents with the Title co., they take care of all registrations and transfer of titles and documents for the assesors office., ten years ago, I went home to the PHL, and gave the same ideas to real estate people there, they told me to forget it, since any law to pattern it to practices  abroad will not prosper, since it is too efficient and armor plated against corruption.see, where this all goes, just follow the money.

    If I am Vicente, I would transfer the property to my name right away even it will cost P200,000 rather than risk losing my property to the known family vulture called Corona.

    But again his insistence not to transfer to his name defies all logic. I will not be surprised later if he will claim he sold the property to Corona’s daughter.

    If I analyze this more, maybe I can find a better answer than what have been reading and have been written on this forum……..Mr. vicente as a witness is a desperate move by the defense.  That tells you that the defense was “doing much ado about nothing”.  They can do better than that.  Mr. Corona is the best witness that the defense can present on this trial but we have yet to see that because I think the defense is scared of putting him.  You know why, the defense was just testing the water by putting all these kind of evidences and witnesses to see if they can get away with them.  But you know what, regardless of what or who you put in there as a defense materials and witnesses, it all boil down to only Mr. Corona who can shed light on this fiasco.   He was the one on trial and he’s the only one who can prove the prosecution wrong.   Filipinos already heard of the prosecutions evidences, then the defense, but considering what has been presented on both sides, people already made up their mind.  In the eyes of the filipinos, Mr. Corona is a good example of what is wrong with the system.  If you analyze more of this matter, Mr. Corona was just the scapegoat of what is the bigger picture.  All these members of the panel of judges, the lawyers on both sides, you name it, were part of elite of people who’s taking or have already taken advantage of the corrupt system.  I won’t be surprise if you check all their SALN, you will find some descrepancies or inaccuracy on their declarations.  It’s shame that what we’re seeing and hearing were merely smoke but “where’s the fire”.  If these panel of judges/senators were serious of eliminating corruptions, it should have started at the time when the Marcoses were kicked out.  To tell you the truth, it gotten worse.  Who are we to blame….the politicians for not putting the country and the people ahead of themselves, the filipinos for allowing these to happen, or the system itself because it was there and it just a matter of taking advantage of it.  The question now, “when will it end”.  If you notice for example on this forum, there are still a lot of our “kababayans”  who doesn’t believe on what Mr. Aquino was doing.  I am not a fan of Mr. Aquino, but for pete sake, we have to start on something.  If not Mr. Aquino, I dare anyone to name one who is better suited to do the job.
    I bet you none….but at least in the case of Mr. Aquino, he was elected and he’s trying.  And that’s a good start.  He’s only been there not even half way and some of our “kababayans” already giving him a negative reaction.  Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt.  What are we to lose.  Filipinos have seen and felt what it’s like under the Marcoses, then the same if not worse on the next administrations.  Now we have this impeachment trial which might be our only salvation for the damages that has been done to the country and it’s people…..let’s hope it’s step on the right direction.

    Only a few Filipinos see what is wrong with this country. They have a tunnel vision and they think only of themselves, their families and their barkadas. There is no feeling of community responsibility. Manual47 is very correct.Nalampasan pa tayo ng ibang bayan na marami naman ang marurunong dito. Ginagamit ba nila ang dunong para sa pagtulong sa kabus? ANG SAGOT AY HINDI.  Palibhasa’y hindi kayo nakatira sa ibang bayang umasenso … there is no way of comparing your situation from that abroad. I spent half of life abroad… I KNOW THE DIFFERENCE! Like maual47 I am not a fun of President Aquino… but for goodness sake  give him a chance for reforms ..and it should begin in Judiciary

      Thank you friend for agreeing with me.  I just wish that people writing on this forum would be more contructive in their comment.  Making comment just for the sake of comment or making comment without substance or sense at all, I found quite a few of them.   I hope that they find in their own conscience and heart that Mr. Aquino after all was elected just like the presidents before him.  Why not judge him at the end of his term.  Filipinos allowed the Arroyos to run the last adminstration in full term.  And look what the Arroyos did.  If Mr. Aquino is not  good enough, then elect a better one.  That is democracy.  As of now Mr. Aquino has not done anything wrong….

  • D_BystandeR

    Demetrio Vicente looks like having the wisdom of an ordinary man on the street but for him to deserve the fruits of his investment in that piece of land is but a wishful thinking. To think that after 22 years he did not bother to cause for the transfer of title to his name for posterity sake puzzles us no end. And the Midnight CJ Corona knows all along this is not the usual turn of events but he tolerated it because he is the beneficiary of Vicente’s negligence. And this brings back the case of BGEI where his wife’s relatives were deprived of their legal participation of their very own property holdings. If Corona was able to hoodwink the BGEI majority owners of the control of their property how much more for this man Demetrio Vicente whose only assurance that the land he bought will still be his even after his death is that because he trusted too much his cousin Corona not to “junk” him.

      shades of

(this is not in the defense of the one sitting now in da palace, coz everyone has the right to use it, especially when you are batting for reform), but his parents use yellow, to instill optimism and energy, during those dark days against makoy,  as well

        right ka dito tamaraw. marcos used red and blue. eh may sakit na si marcos noon. malakas ang energy ng red but marcos was already sick at the time of election against tita cory kaya hindi nakayanan ni marcos ang energy ng red. while blue is the color of mama mary, eh ang samasama niya kaya la effect ang color blue sa kanya. kaya hayun natalo sila. aura kasi ni marcos, grayish black at that time. let’s pray for pnoy his sign(numerology/eneagram) is prosperity and wealth, just like pres. reagan, pnoy will bring our nation to prosperity and wealth. itong si gma, sobrang baba ng numerology niya hindi pa gumawa ng kabutihan kaya hayun bilangguan ang punta niya.

        Katulad narin ng sinabi ni Michael “kung impossible, dapat madaling ma prove”.

        hehehe, yung prosecution, inabot ng ilang araw? walang ma prove. Yung 45 properties, 5 na lang ang natirang irefute. hehehe, sa korte tulad din sa logic (at stat), to prove that someone is guilty, you start with a null hypothesis (e.g., trial starts with someone is not guilty). If one cannot reject this null hypothesis, one has to accept it, i.e. not guilty siya. The prosecutors have done this already, they have succeeded in accepting the null hypothesis. hehehe, alam mo cguro ito, kc you’re trying to sound logical, hehehe, at alam mo rin na sinasagot lang ng defense ang kabobohan ng prosecutors.

    Bonsai artists train their bonsais by planting the tree on small pots, depriving it of nutrients and putting wires on the material (untrained plant) to thwart its growth  and manipulate the branches and twigs’ direction.

    Ganyan din ginawa sa atin ng isa pang bonsai, Si Gloria, pinagkasya nya ang buong bansa sa isang pinaliit  ng kurakot na budget (small pot) then hindi ibinigay ang nararapat sa tao (deprived us of nutrients) nag appoint ng ex-military generals sa cabinet (to manipulate the branches) and nag-appoint pa ng mga katulad ni Corona for the finishing touches para magjudge kung papaano siya mag exit(to direct where the twigs goes).

    Kaya nakaka tawa si Gloria habang naka suot ng braces sa leeg at ulo. para talagang Bonsai na tinetrain.

    Gloria stop acting
    Corona stop acting

      Yea, but there are other factors that one should factor in. Being old is expensive especially when you’re on medication.

    In the middle of the property is his airy red-brick home. It was near sunset but none of the lights were on. There was no television set in the living room, just simple old furniture, some bonsai picture books and family photos. There was an old split-type air-conditioner, but Vicente was quick to the draw and said in Filipino: “You know why I never turn that on? Because it’s hot.  It’s too hot for me to pay for the power bill.”The complete picture of the house might have a semblance of those along EDSA corner Quezon Ave.which houses plants and flowers for sale and which the structure and the business can be abandoned or be transferred anytime.

    Mr Vicente’s use of the 1700 sqm lot still titled to Cristina Corona since 1990 up to the present time is proof indeed that he needed the additional space to add to the 1700 sqm lot he purchased from Mirriam Roco in order to have ample space for his hobbies. But his use of the property and his claim of making the real estate tax payments in the name of Mrs Corona could very possibly have happened under a secret lease arrangement between the Coronas and Mr Vicente
    and also does not negate the important facts that Mr Vicente did not transfer the title to himself (for lack of 20,000pesos for the transfer tax!) and that the deed of sale purchase price an incredibly low 300pesos/sqm (!).

    Most of us, or maybe most of us, know the children’s story
    of “The Emperor’s New Clothes.”
    Briefly, it’s about the emperor’s tailor running out of his
    wits to create new clothes for the very vain emperor.
    He comes up with an idea. The most fantastic new clothes
    should be no clothes at all. He simply deludes the emperor
    into thinking that the new clothes are so flawless and beautiful.
    Then, the emperor parades the new clothes, and his subjects
    are astounded but cannot say anything for fear of reprisal, until
    a child says, “But he is not wearing anything!”
     
    This has its analogy in the conspiracy among the Coronas
    and Demetrio Vicente about owning this land. The Coronas
    want to have their cake, and eat it, too. Translation: Use this
    in their defense as not this property’s owners, when in fact
    they are, and remain so. Demetrio
    is used for their purpose and given a useless deed of sale.
     
    Now the property is full of bonsai, and because of that
    Demetrio says it belongs to him, because he wouldn’t
    have his bonsai there if it didn’t.
     
    But what does Demetrio really have? A useless deed of sale.
    He doesn’t have anything that could really and truly
    make him this property’s owner in legally accepted terms.
    The bonsai can be transferred elsewhere any time at all.
     
    And you can imagine how furious the emperor must
    be with the tailor, the part the Coronas play in this story.
    And who’s the emperor, you may ask. Well, in this
    version, it’s ambition, the Coronas’ ambition to
    become powerful and godlike. Both the emperor and
    the tailor are one? Yes indeed! The Coronas think that
    they can fool the people, when in fact by letting out
    this incident in their lives, they have only made fools
    of themselves.

    • el_latigo

       If I were Mr. Vicente, now is the time to effect the transfer of this prime lot to his name asap because anyways, the Coronas claim that this 25 million peso worth of property (at ave. P 7,300.00/sqm) is not theirs but sold it to Mr. Vicente, transfer or no transfer, because,  well, he “trusts”  them! But there is a risk though. With Corona’s many reported guns in his armory, he could point one of them to Vicente’s noggins just what he reportedly  did to that poor Basa-Guidote caretaker if it so happened that he is merely  a caretaker. But naaah, maybe Vicente is indeed telling the truth,  who knows? Maybe Mang Igme, the famous barber around your corner,  knows?

  • justomontevedio

    “They can’t say this property is Corona’s. If I were merely a caretaker, how would this bonsai have roots like that?” said Vicente in Filipino, pointing to an aged bonsai with roots clawed firmly on the ground.”
    The above does not prove ownership of the property.
    I have a vacant lot and I let the adjacent owner to use it to plant their vegetables. This arrangement benefits that adjacent owner and me. In my case, I have my lot cleaned of tall grasses and weeds and ensure that no squatters will come in – FREE of any expenses.
    It is more likely that CJ (‘In Due Time” fame) has similar arrangement and benefited, free of expenses, by having someone guarding and cleaning his property and at the same time have someone to absorb “ownership” of the property.
    Vicente’s action of having paid the property, but not transferring the ownership within that many years does not make sense and unbelievable! His alibi can only fool those CJ (‘In Due Time” fame) fans.

    • Satticus

      Yes, it indeed does not prove ownership. But I think Mr. Demetrio’s point is that if he is merely a caretaker then he would not use the entire lot for his own art. Maybe to his mind if he is only a caretaker then he only have to preserve the property, make sure that it does not deteriorate and not use it as if it is his own, tending bonsai for his hobby and art.

    • isaiditonlynow

      why would he be holding the original titles? it’s so common here. people have the deeds of sale and the original titles but don’t transfer. it’s the same at the used car lots. it’s to avoid paying the taxes when you transfer it to your name. the key here, is that he has the original titles in his possession. if you have the original titles it would be very difficult for the corona’s to sell it. no one would buy the property without them. but, yes, he’s still taking his chances of not having done the transfer. but i myself believe the guy is the owner. i think at the beginning this was his thought (avoiding payments and trusting that the former owners are relatives). now the penalties and taxes got bigger and he may not have the cash to do it.

Ang sa akin lang ay parang may itinatago itong si corona at sa mga press releases ng kanyang mga abogado ang mga katuwiran na ibinibigay ay napaka-babaw na hindi kapanipaniwala. Isa pa, laging sabi ni corona haharap siya sa trial at ilalahad niya ang kanyang bank account (in due time), pero ang kanyang mga abogado humaharang dito. Press release lang niya ang mga “in due time” na mga yaon. Alam niyang hindi mangyayari.  

    • pabs1957

      There are people who after buying a piece of property and taking hold of the title, did not bother to transfer the same to their name.  I know because being a real estate agent, I encountered clients , (actually I’m helping one right now, who bought a property in 1989, nothing he can do but pay the penalties due to BIR) who are in the same predicament of Mr. Vicente. 

  • Victor Magallanes

    Mr. Vicente and his bonsais was featured by PDI April 7, 2000  on its Lifestyle section. It seems that Mr. Vicente really owns the property albeit he still has not transferred the title to his name. He has the absolute deed of sale, the original titles and he is the one who has been paying the real estate taxes.Sen. Osmena  believes that Vicente is a credible witness and really owns the property.

    • el_latigo

       About 25 million pesos worth of real estate property not yet transferred to his name? Mr. Vicente must be filthy rich not to bother transferring to his name up to now this prime property. After the BGEI fiasco spread in all broadsheets involving the Coronas, would he still not effect the transfer? Hmm, for prudent persons, it would appear something is not just right in this piece of news considering that he has also his kids as heirs to consider.   

      • Victor Magallanes

        Latigo,

        Who are we to blame Mr. Vicente if he still has not transferred the title to his name? He sincerely believes that he owns the land. He has proof that he does. 

        Besides, this stemmed from the fact that the prosecution alleged that the 7 properties are still owned by the Coronas. Now, here comes someone who says that he already bought it more than a score ago and has the documents to prove it. The prosecution must rebut this evidence from the defense. You can say all what you want about why he still has not transferred the title to his name but this will not and never will invalidate the deed of sale. In fact, talking about it, the prosecution knows that the contract between the Coronas and Mr. Vicente is binding even if it was not notarized (again, subject for the rebuttal by the defense).

        There is no use dwelling on peripheral issues and collateral attack of personalities on this matter. Why don’t someone ask the Ombudsman what she thinks about this matter. She frequents Mr. Vicente’s place. 

      • el_latigo

         If this story is true, Mr. Vicente appears to be a not so prudent man, stupid even,  if I were to believe his claims. 3,400 sqm na lote di mo ipapalipat sa ngalan mo after FULLY paying for it? Eh kung iyon ngang 100 sqm lot lang ipapalipat mo sa ngalan mo kaagad, yun pa kayang 3,400 sqm (count ‘em Vic..) pa kaya? Mantakin mo may tagapagmana din siya: ang mga anak niya. Di ba magaalala ang mga ito pag nalaman nilang yung ganuong kalaking aria-arian sa Marikina City ay hangga ngayon wala pa rin sa pangalan nila samantalang bayad na ito? Kayang bumili ng ganuong kalaking lote, pero di kayang magbayad ng transfer tax, eh magkano lang naman ito nuong araw na binili niya ang lote? Sorry to say, but it taxes and boggles one’s imagination to believe what appears to be this fairy tale that not even the brothers Grimm’s fertile imaginations can concoct.

  • tarikan

    Cultivating bonsai trees since he moved into the property in 1990 does not mean he owns the place. Bonsai trees don’t substitute for real estate titles. The courts would only recognize whose name is on the title. And who would believe him that he did not know that the properties (7 parcels) were owned by his cousin? And why did he not transfer the title to his name when it cost only a few thousand pesos to do it back then now it would cost a cool P200,000. He claims he is paying the real estate tax but who knows that the money comes from the Corona’s?

      “But before House members should be faulted, perhaps Rep. Tanada could
      suggest that his Liberal partymate President Noynoy first answer queries about
      his own SALN, e.g., why P-Noy’s net worth in 2010 jumped by 55 percent over
      that of 2009?  Then too, as columnist
      Winnie Monsod pointed out in her Jan. 28, 2012 column, there are glaring
      discrepancies in P-Noy’s SALN: for instance, “a piece of agricultural land in
      Concpecion, Tarlac, acquired in 1987, was declared as inherited in 2006 but as
      purchased in 2009. Or another piece of agricultural land, this time in Capas,
      Tarlac, acquired in 1985 (inherited) was not declared in his 2006 SALN.”

      Winnie also pointed out that P-Noy declared his Times Street residence as
      acquired in 1985 (by inheritance), but it was not included in his 2006 SALN.
      Moreover, she argued, “the current market value he declared on the (Times)
      property in his 2010 SALN was P1.96 million—a figure which has not changed
      since 2007.” Said Winnie: “There is no way that the Times Street property could
      be worth, at current prices, less than P2 million.” From an article by Belinda Olivares-Cunanan.

        2. Dahil hindi nila binasa, wala silang evidence o katibayan para paghinalaan na si CJ ay guilty sa mga charges nila.

        In short, they are all clueless sa accusations nila JUST LIKE YOU

    • noeltabaz2

      As you said it looks like.  But the possibility that the property is still owned by the Corornas cannot be discounted.  If the property is still owned by the Coronas until before the alleged discovery that the title of ownership was not yet transferred to Demetrio Vicente, the payment of taxes may have been made by the Coronas and not by D. Vicente.  Most likely, the payment of taxes was made by checks issued by the Coronas.  Verify the mode of payment of the real estate taxes and see who issued the check to pay the tax.

      • Korean_woman

        As far as deeed of sale goes, technically Vincente is the owner and he is telling the truth, Commonly the real situation can be very different, there can be another signed undated deed of sale back to the Coronas, That is very common here isnt it?  he has to tow this line otherwise he is promptly out on the sidewalk with his bonsai, and will be treated like Sister Flory. Vincent is a senior citazen and not in good health, lets not make life harder for this family with their daughter working oversees and sending allowance to help her parents. Ask him to Register it in his Vincente and wifes name then , then there is a win win where Vincente gets the property and his daughter can return from overseas and take care of her aging parents, Then  Corona will win on this point, Who would you buy a lot from? the registered owner of course, not someone who is waving a deed of sale (are 10 a centavo,)==here,
        Stop this Tomfoolery on our nation now, !!!! pulling us down

      • noeltabaz2

        Unless and until the deed of sale is registered and the ownership is transferred to the seller, the owner remains to be the person whose name appears in the transfer certificate of title. The life of the Vicentes is not included in the case of CJ Corona.

      malikot na pagiisip dahil sa kaka noynoying…

      constantine, you should diligently follow posts here so you will be enlightened. 

      but just briefly i would say, the senators are convinced he’s telling the truth. yun lang yun. at sabi pa ni sen recto, mahirap paniwalaan ang ginigiit ng prosecution na simulated ang sale.

      if there are dummies here, it’s the noynoying crowd. really…

  • noeltabaz2

    Vicente Demetrio claims he is the one paying the real estate tax of the property allegedly bought from the Coronas.  Since the title and tax declaration is still in Corona’s name, the official receipts covering the payment of real estate tax must have been issued in the name of Corona.  To verify the veracity of his statement, there is a need to check the payments made on the real estate taxes.  If the checks used to pay the taxes were issued by the Coronas, then the claim that Vicente Demetrio was the one who paid the taxes was a big BIG lie.

    • caseydean

      As if ikaw lang ang nakaisip nyan…

      Sa palagay mo ba ang mga lawyers ng prosecution at ang batikan at lawyrs na sina Drillon at Pangilinan na harvard graduate, isama na ang senior senator na is Osmena na KAALYADO NI NOYNOY HINDI NAISIP YAN…

      Alam din nila yan.. eh hindi nila mapatunayan na si Corona ang may-ari e.. yun ang problema

      • noeltabaz2

        Don’t be too sarcastic.  You don’t know what you’re talking about.  Where in my comment did I say that I was the only one who knows that.  Also, don’t act as if you’re that smart.   You’re saying that the prosecution cannot prove that the Coronas own the property?  Wherever you go, whoever you ask, (just don’t ask yourself as you surely don’t know) the owner of a property is the one registered and appearing on the certificate of title.  And who was the registered owner?

      • noeltabaz2

        Your comparison is very far away from the topic. The case of Hacienda Luisita is very much different from the case of the properties allegedly sold to D. Vicente. Give me a good example if you will try to give me a lecture.

      • thadeothadeo

        Maybe if we shed our biases we can deduce that the senators are convinced that Mr. Vicente is the real owner.  If we all watched the trial, even the highly partisan Drilon was unable to demolish the truth, so he had to relent.  We heard Jinggoy, Loren, Cayetano, Escudero, Enrile. etc.  Did they sound incredulous to Vicente’s claim?

    • thadeothadeo

      It’s okay if to you it is a big lie.  You can only post this comment, but Sen. Osmena is convinced.  And he casts the vote, not you or anyone here who are clings to the notion that Mr. Vicente is lying.  Flatter yourself.  It won’t matter.

      • noeltabaz2

        Well, there is always two sides of the coin. If you and Sen. Osmena are convinced, then that is your belief. In my case, I don’t believe in their story. So just keep your belief to yourself and I will with mine. And try not to be sarcastic.

        Iyan ang hindi maintindihan ng karamihan, they treat Corona as a private individual na pwedeng gayahin yung style ng mga ordinaryong kriminal na patagalin yung kaso, nadadamay na yung credibility ng buong SC dahil sa interest ng isang tao. Ang reason lagi is “nasa prosecution ang burden of proof kaya bahala silang maglabas ng ebidensya”. Napaka-irresponsible na attitude, he’s the Chief Justice not some MMDA staff. He’s hiding something, eventually lalantad din iyan, mas pinapatagal niya mas lalo siyang nagmumukhang kahiya hiya.

    The yellow mob, still incredulous despite this PDI feature, is downplaying the veracity of the report for damage control  having been embarrassed for putting doubts on the testimony of the witness Mr.Demetrio Vicente.  They are showing insidious duplicity to hide their awkwardness, like a child caught with his hands inside the cookie jar.  They are doing a magician act to turn the humiliation into their advantage by spinning yarns to blunt the effect.  However, the damage is irreparable.  Like the overaged juvenile delinquent prosecutors who hurried up the impeachment charges – and be chastised daily for it, the yellow mob are still swaggering with arrogance despite such stinging setback.  

    The sympathy of the public was aroused when PDI published unflattering shot of Mr, Vicente ostensibly to make fun of him, a subtle way of discrediting him.  This report of correspondent Tara Quismundo is an attempt to make up for the the Editor’s distasteful gaffe.  The apology was accepted, but only after the social network deluged the PDI with biting criticisms.  Even Sen. Osmena believed his testimony the first time, and that does not augur well for the mob who are salivating for Corona’s ouster.  Osmena ‘s vote may have been lost, because of this.  When an accused presents credible witnesses, the prosecution loses points.  It is the same senator who admitted that the Articles of impeachment is fatally flawed.  And now this.  17 votes are required to unseat CJ and  Osmena’s nod is critical to  achieve that much to convict being a partisan senator for the PNoy.  With this development, the number is diminishing.

    Noynoying seems to be the only way out here.  Take your money and run.  With tails between your legs.

    Dummy lang yan si Vicente… DUMMY… Hindi yang Bonsai witness ang ebidensya… Kung kanino nakapangalan ang Titulo ng lupa YUN ang may-ari ng LUPA… At ang titulo ng LUPA ay nakapangalan kay Cristina Corona… Maliwanag pa sa sikat ng araw yan…. Yang deed of sale ay gawa-gawa lang yan ni Corona, pati na yang hand-written na letter of acknowledgement receipt ni Cristina Corona… Ang dali-daling gumawa ng letter na yan pati ng Deed of Sale “kuno”… Ang tunay na hindi madaling gawin ay ang pagpapalipat ng pagmamay-ari… Kaya hindi nailipat ang pagmamay-ari o ang pangalan sa titulo mula kay Cristina Corona sa pangalan ni Vicente ay dahil hindi naman talaga KASI si Vicente ang may-ari ng LUPA na yan…  Sa loob ng 20 taon???? Hindi nailipat ang pangalan sa TITULO???  Eh paano nga maililipat ni Vicente sa loob ng 20 taon eh kasi hindi naman TALAGA kanya, dahil kung sa kanya talaga yan noong 1992 pa inilipat na nya yan!!! IMPOSIBLE yang pinagsasabi nya… Linoloko lang NILA ang mga PILIPINO pati ang mga Senador…

      Siguro hindi ka pa bumili ng lupang may titulo. Ako bumili ng lupa na may titulo for 100 thousand. nang ipapatransfer kona sa akin pangalan dyan ko nalaman aside from paying 100 thousand mayroon pang akon babayaran na BIR TAX, ESTATE TAX, at kong anu ano pang mga bayaran sa BIR na hindi ko kasama sa budget, kaya ipinagliban ko muna. Hindi ko nabayaran ng mga sampung taon, ng makaipon ako ng pera saka nalang ako pumunta sa BIR at nalaman ko na magbabayad parin ang ng penalty every year na hindi naitransfer and title sa pangalan ko. Alam mo kong magkano ang babayaran mas malaki pa sa prisyo na lupang binili ko dahil sa mga penalty. Kaya hindi ko nalang ini transfer sa akin pangalan ang titulo pero mayroon akong deed of absolute sale. so hangang ngayon wala parin sa akin pangalan ang lupang yan at wala naman problima. Kung sakaling may mag claim na mga kamaganak ano ang kanilang basehan e wala naman sa kanila ang title kundi sa akin. At bakit sila magrereklamo hindi naman sila ang nagbabayad ng property tax.

    Noynoying cannot produce these masterpieces. Even the correspondent is awed at the sight – bonsais so old thay have taken roots firmly clawed to the ground that must have been there for ages. Yet the yellow fanatics are not swayed by such. I really have to admire their guts for clinging to the prosecutors yarn that Mr. Vicente is not the real owner of this property despite this news feature from an eyewitness reporter of a broadsheet who is supposed to be biased against Corona.  Of course they have to stay deceived for taking the position of being a Corona hater.  It is unbecoming for a fanatic to change his mind in the face of a glaring fact.  No fanatic changes his mind.  It is preset to be prejudiced.

  • Juan1102

    I think he is credible. Things like these (not formally transferring name to property) have been known to happen. I believe Mr. Vicente is credible—and he has added to his credibility because the ombudsman (Conchita Carpio Morales), will be releasing a statement to prove that as far as she knows, Mr. Vicente owns the property since she’s visited him several times. I doubt if Carpio-Morales, a known Pnoy ally, will suddenly be pro-defense…so her attestation will add to the credibility of Mr. Vicente.

      By definition po a bonsai is a tree trained and groomed to look like a midget old tree, in short it is a dwarfed fake old tree.

      About long time to settle and get rooted: Usually marcotting and grafting technique is used to minimize the waiting time. Nope, hindi sila directly itatanim sa lupa dahil masisira ang main root pag binunot mo na sila para ilipat sa pot. kaya what they do is after harvesting the material (through grafting and marcotting technique) itatanim na iyan sa pot para then duon mo na sila aalagan at buhayin. in that way, pwede mo silang ilipat anytime you want without disturbing the roots. just saying lang po

    Corona wife summoned forJHMC fund abuses

    As president of John Hay Management Corp. (JHMC), Cristina Corona, wife of Chief Justice Renato Corona, received P78,000 as monthly basic salary, JHMC records showed.
    She also received a P10,800 monthly representation allowance, P20,000 for communication expenses every month and P40,000 per board meeting appearance, according to the records.
    Data from the Commission on Audit showed she received P972,148.30 in salaries and allowances for six months last year broken down as follows: P469,986 for basic salary; P6,000 for personnel economic relief allowance and additional compensation; P334,000 for allowances; P154,962.30 for bonus, incentives and benefits; and P7,200 for other allowances.
    In 2009, she received P939,972 for basic salary; P320,000 in per diem; P200,000 for representation and transportation allowance; P12,000 for  personnel economic relief allowance and additional compensation; P4,000 for clothing or uniform allowance; P184,630.79 for bonus and incentives and P254,400 for other allowances, or a total of P1,915,002.79.

    These acts allegedly are the reasons why Corona, in 19 major cases against the Arroyo admin, voted for it. Among the 19 were: the grant of territory to Moro separatists, the Hello Garci tapes, and the ZTE scam (for which Mrs. Corona advertised support for the for the Fake President Arrovo).

      “The Case of the Philippine Supreme Court, an Empirical Analysis 1986-
      2010, authors Laarni Escresa and Nuno Garoupa tracked 125 decisions of
      the Supreme Court in politically-salient cases from 1986 to 2010. The article pointed out that:”                        

      JUSTICE ANTONIO CARPIO – who served as GMA’s Chief Presidential Legal
      Adviser cast 19 pro-administration votes as against 11 anti-administration votes or around 66% pro-GMA votes. 

      JUSTICE BRION – who served as GMA’s Labor Secretary cast 5 pro-administration votes against 8 anti-administration votes or around 33% pro-GMA votes.

      CJ CORONA – in this study cast 8 pro-administration votes against 28 anti-administration votes or around only 29% pro-GMA votes.
       
      So, what are you saying?  You’re making your own story, Mr. Ricky Carandang aka ztefertilizerscam3!!  Your propaganda won’t sell!!

    Inquirer ran a story of Demetrio Vicente and his bonsai plants way back in 2000.

    here is the proof: http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=2479&dat=20000407&id=RFM1AAAAIBAJ&sjid=ZyUMAAAAIBAJ&pg=2597%2C3753192

    BETRAYAL OF PUBLIC( MARITAL TRUST)

    Thief Justice Renato Corona wants to project the image that he is a loving husband to his wife, Cristina. The fact is, the Chief Justice has not only betrayed the public trust but most importantly, has betrayed his marital vow.
     
    If the Thief Justice is man enough, He should admit the fact that he has a long-standing romantic relationship with a gentle lady named EVA with whom the Thief Justice has two (2) illegitimate sons. EVA also hails from Batangas and had her education from Assumption College just like his wife Cristina who also graduated earlier from the same school.
     
    For Chief Justice Renato C. Corona not to mention his children with EVA as if they do not exist at all, is the highest form of ignominy and immorality that he can commit not only against his legitimate wife and family but against his oath as the highest magistrate of the land.
     
    An inquiry into his relationship with EVA and his illegitimate children in connection with the on-going impeachment trial becomes extremely necessary in the light of the properties given by the Chief Justice to them. EVA, who has previously undergone a heart bypass operation, is known not to have worked from the time she had this romantic liaison with the Thief Justice nor does she have any known business of her own and yet, EVA is luxuriously living in the United States, together with her two (2) illegitimate children with the good Chief Justice.
     
    The SALN of CJ Corona does not indicate any such properties.
     
    And the reason for the frequent trips of CJ Corona to the United States, the latest of which was late last year, was to visit EVA and his children with her. That CJ Corona could afford to support the kind of luxurious lifestyle of EVA and her children in the U.S. is certainly for the Thief Justice to explain considering his small salary.
     
    A simple investigation on the identity and circumstances of EVA can easily be done by a simple inquisition in Batangas as well as from the classmates, relatives and friends of EVA and of CJ Corona.
     
    I know these facts because EVA is a relative of mine and it pains me immensely to see the Thief Justice professing his love for Cristina on nationwide television when he has confessed to my relative that he loves her far more than his wife. In fact, the Thief Justice made EVA believe that he was already separated from his wife Cristina. This probably explains why for the longest time, the Chief Justice has not reported in his SALN the fact of Cristina’s working in government and the fact that Cristina has not signed the SALNs as his wife.
     
    Betrayal of public trust? This is a small matter than what the Thief Justice has done to his wife and family which constitutes the highest form of immoral act – BETRAYAL OF MARITAL TRUST.
     
    Real name of CJ Corona’s girlfriend – Eva Auria; She hails from Rosario, Batangas; She graduated from Assumption College (not from Maryknoll College) She has two (2) sons with CJ Corona who are now in their teens; She is residing now in the United States. CJ Corona’s wife, Cristina, knows about the elicit relationship of her husband with Eva. To know more about the details on Eva, a simple investigation of Eva’s background in Rosario Batangas and Assumption College would elicit the necessary informations.  Eva has plenty of properties in the US.  They keep secret the exact address.  The bagman of CJ Corona (who facilitates the transfer of funds from Corona to Eva is “Abet” who is a relative by affinity of Eva, being married to a stepsister of Eva.  (The wife of Abet has the same mother as Eva but different Fathers).  The biggest delivery to Eva involves the bribe money given by the Aguirres of Banco Filipino.
     
    If the bank accounts of CJ Corona and his wife are opened, it will not be a surprise to see a running balance of not less than P200M.  The bribe from the owner of the previously closed alone was a whopping P200M.  And most money went to Eva through the Assistance of Abet.
     
    The sons of Corona carry the name of the mother.  But CJ Corona has openly recognized Ate Eva’s sons as his. A simple search at the NSO using “Renato C. Corona” would readily reveal this.  For a time, when Eva was still in the Philippines, Renato and Eva lived as husband and wife.  In fact, all our relatives in Rosario, Batangas and in the United States, knew the long-standing relationship.  We all thought that Renato was already separated from Cristina.  Some of Renato’s relatives in Tanuan, Batangas where he hailed from, know about this relationship.  Some friends of Renato have seen the 2 sons and have been their ninongs.  All our relatives thought really that Renato will never deny his relationship with Ate Eva.  Sana hindi nya gagawin iyon kasi kawawa sya at ang mga bata.

    Marami ang ayaw maalis si CORONA na ang dahilan lang ay dahil kapritso lang ni
    P’NOY at wala naman talagang ginawang impeachable offense ang CJ..Ngayong may mga lumabas na  dapat pasinungalingan si CORONA, kailangan na pati ang asawa para dumipensa sa kanya..At pati pinsan tumestigo na rin..

    Nakapagtaka lang, kung talaga wala naman talaga itinatago, kahit ano iakusa  walang mapapatunayan..

    NO ONE CAN EVER PUT A GOOD MAN DOWN..yan ay magiging totoo kay CORONA
    kung malinis at matuwid talaga siya….pero kung hindi heto ang sabi ng Biblia:

    PROV  11:6 The righteousness of the upright will deliver them, But the treacherous will be caught by their own greed.

    PROV 13:5, “A righteous man hateth lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, andcometh to shame.”

        5.Walang ginagawa si P’NOY para iaddress ang kahirapan, pagtaas ng produktong petroleo etc..
        6.Pagtuligsa sa mga cabinet members ni P’NOY etc..etc

        Napakaraming nakabinbin mga kaso sa SC na hanggang ngayon ay walang mga aksyon…justice delayed is justice denied pero marami na nga ang mga tumanda sa pagkakulong na wala palang kasalanan dahil walang pera para kumuha ng magaling na abugado…Napakabagal ng hustisya dito sa atin at wala rin namang ginagawang aksyon para maimprove at maramdaman ng bayan kung mayroon man..

        Kung siya kaya ang umupong presidente, kaya ba niyang iaddress lahat ng isyung ibinabato niya kay P’NOY?Sariling bakuran niya ay hindi nya malinis?

        Sa klase ng kangyang pagkatao, na protektor ng isang gaya ni GMA na talamak sa corruption,for sure lalo lang mapapahamak ang bansa..magisip isip ka kabayan…

    A job well done to the Inquirer for a more humble and human story of Mr. Vicente.
    And i must admit…if there were any doubts about his ownership of that property….they have all been removed by this story.   Now the question is why did the house prosecution team fail to present the property ownership correctly?   Dirty politics…or just incompetence?

    2000 bonsai? It costs money to maintain them, ask bonsai enthusiasts. If you sell a few of them you have no problem paying the transfer fee including the penalty, so his reason of not having money does not hold water … believe me I am a bonsai collector myself, although I don’t have as many bonsai as he has. 
      

    • casaysay

      Kung may pera man at any given time si Vicente pero mas gusto pa niya mapunta uli ito sa bonsai expenses niya or whereever ay that is his own personal preference. At tama siya na he do not care kung hindi man ma transfer agad sa kanya ang Title kasi 100% legally binding ang Deed of Sale esp na nabayaran na ang required fees sa gobyerno. Masasabi ko with honesty na pag hahanapan mo fault ang tao dahil sa hindi nito pagpa transfer agad ng Title sa pangalan niya ay sign ito na wala ka pang experience as a lot seller or buyer hence you just cannot understand real estate transaction and legalities. Worst, ito ang inexperiences ng maraming kabayans ang pinupuntirya ng Pnoy at ng prosecution para mabilog ang opinion ng masa.

      did you grew your own bonsai or just bought it? or did you not understand the article? he said that there used to be 3k bonsai and now theres only 2k left. he is paying 35k as RPT anually, and all this years, his bonsai is his only income. compute your anual expense, and tell me if he can really pay about 300k to transfer the title to his name..

      our property is only 180sqm in manila but up to now, after 30 years, we still have not enough money to pay for its transfer. but because we hold the original title and the deed of sale we can anytime transfer it to our name. we don’t worry about the penalty because we already changed it in my mothers name when my father died in 2004. 

  • casaysay

    Kahit noong nasa witness stand si Vicente ay kitang-kita naman clearly ang pagiging totoo ng mga sinasabi niya dahil ang mga surrounding circumstances of events ay interelated at di kayang ma simulate lamang. Halimbawa ang pagbenta ng P3.5million  bahay niya sa QC Feb 1990 at pagbili ng P1million lupa July 1990. Ang pagkaroon ng agent o broker dahil di niya alam na sa pinsan pala niya ang pinagbiling lupa or else kung simulated sale ay dapat wala ng agent para maiwasan ang commission fee. Most of all, ang kawalan ng common sense na argument na gusto raw itago ni Corona ang owneship ng lot noon pang 1990 as if nagkaroon na noon ng prediction na sa 2012 ay merong impeachment trial. At bakit itatago e ito ay inheritance property. At papaano maging possibly fake ang sale gayong 50% ng lupa ay di pag-aari ng Corona but by the sister of mrs corona. Ahhhhh, ang maraming kabayans ay nagiging bobo na yata sa logical analysis mula ng magkaroon ng questionable Pnoy presidency.

    paumanhin po mr vicente its ironic your nickname is  identical to that of malacanang resident….while you are nonoy-ying with your bonsai, the other is noynoy-ying for nothing….

    ang ganda ng mga bonsai ninyo mang Nonoy……   

    • casaysay

      Our president Pnoy is working average of 6 hours a day as per reports leaking from palace reporters. Usual dating niya sa office ay 9 Am at umuuwi between 3-5 PM. Masama pa ba ang 6 hours work at ginawa itong joke na “noynoying”? I am just wondering and asking. 

      • KenKhoy

        ganon ba ah ok for explaining ……. it would be best and for the interest of everybody that the malacanang itself will do the explaining….. as you said “leaking reports” lang….baka hearsay tayo dyan…. let them publish the normal work sched and activities  of ” mr boss ko kayo” from 9am-to 5pm…so that this can be cleared….  if ang uwi niya is 3 pm … in my view its too early for a leader na uuwi na mabilis pa sa alas sinko…… unless he has other appointments or dates…. if 9am naman ang pasok medyo late ata , dapat sabay sabay o mauna ang leader para hindi tularan …at siya dapat ang nangunguna sa flag ceremony bilang isang leader ng bansa….

        but  noynoy-ying has another connotation, its not all about work ethics but of none action for his part, just like on the impending oil price increase when the malacanang knee jerk reaction is ” theres nothing we can do about” which i think not right .. instead of encouraging statement from our leader…. his none action on tuition fees, none action on his kkk, and among others…. they should not get pikon on this , but this serves as palakul (wake-up call) on their part para magising…. tayo nga ang boss nila  at galing sa buhis ang pasueldo nila… dapat lang mag serbesyo sila……  on my own humbol openyon… dapat pangunahan ng malakanyang na palitan ang pangalan ng  OP “office of the president”  to Office of Public Servant…. para hindi nila makalimutan na sila ay PS… yong IDs nila dapat before their given names ay… Public Servant… Juan Delacruz….. the same applies to all national government offices  and  LGUs, senado , congress…

        mr casaysay paki bulong nalang sa kaibigan mong reporter na ipabot yong opinion ko kay ” mr boss ko kayo”  baka naman pakinggan at gusto ko nang tumulay sa tamang daan kahit hindi matuwid basta tama lang… para hindi matisod..

      Critics of the President have hurled him the all the disgusting names and nomenclature, while the President is thinking and implementing some approaches that would result in the improvement of the economic level of the common tao. 

      Power rates should be regulated but how, should it by a presidential degcree or by legislative mandate? The inefficiency of electric transmission – losses and wates are being charged to the people. Napocor is a big useless agency. And very corrupt. When a govt would initiate some changes, Napocor would suddenly announce maintenance of a couple of power plants resulting to long blackouts and intermittent brown-outs. They did it 25 years ago, no shame at all, Up until this time there are areas in the country where electricity is only available sometime in the day. Napocor’s budget is a national appropriations item. Although this GOCC should be an earning corporation, it is a perpetually losing one. But check the lifestyle of Napocor officials and engineers. They have time-sharing apartments in Baguio and in Boracay and who knows where. They sport new and powerful cars as the Napocor supplier bundle these extra items in their bids, although written in invisible ink. They own beautiful homes and their children are in Ateneo and DLSU or UP. With so many private BOT power projects, I could not help but suspect the evil partnership of Napocor and Meralco and the local cooperatives in the rural areas.
      Just to consider that the country has geothermal, natural gas and local coal should put us in a position that would allow us to generate power and deliver it very cheaply.
      Well of course, most politicians are lawyers, and lawyers are blood-sucking leeches, they sell you to the hghest bidders; they are only good for well..making laws of no consequence and blocking bills that would cross-path with their interests.

      These antics of the good-for-nothing, leftists demonstrators give inspiration to the defenders of the crook and the corrupt, of those who brazenly emptied the coffers of the government. And so many of Filipinos who are so stupied that they try to fool themselves that the reason why they are poor is because of this President.

      • KenKhoy

        good point , may we know what he is thinking and implementing….. when his initial reaction  is  ” nothing  we can do about it”  ….  that defies lawtons law of motion if we put it in another perspective….. thats the last thing we need from our leader……this viral word serves as wake up call for him and the malacanang and let their hands full in running the country not in matuwid na daan … dapat sa tamang daan

      • jan lim

        your right the president should not be solely be blamed on this issue, but the fact that he controls NAPOCOR and everybody through his secretary’s, and as commander-in-chief, he would also be held responsible. why? if he can dictate in congress to impeach CJ Corona, that means he have the numbers to impose all the neccesary adjustments if he has one….

        it only meant that like his mother he is only up to revenge against the past administration and really have no agenda and just really is noynoying around, to improve the common tao as you have said.

        if he really wants change he can do so, because he has the numbers in congress. he controls the PDAF of all the congressman who does not follow his “matuwid na daan”.

        but where does his Matuwid na Daan led us? and isn’t it also the way the the past administration went through???

    Who is telling the truth? The old man in his testimony said that he could not pay for the transfer of Title from Renato at this time yet because his daughter has just started her contract in Kuwait (making arabic confectionery? Is she able to work with men bakers in Kuwait?). If he has not completed transfer of ownership Title payment, how could he say that he is paying P35,000 taxes annually? And if he pays for the tax, can he not pay for the “deed of transfer of ownership”? A bonsai can be sold for P25,000 which is enough for the registration purposes. Who is telling the truth? Even the body language of Mang Vicente betrays that he is not truthful at all.

    My godfather in my marriage to my wife issued an absolute deed of sale to Estanislao Fernandez. Fernandez asked for it becuase according to him his loan is not released pending a proof of intended purchase. My Godfather was a nice person and trusting. He gave the Absolute deed of Sale but the payment never came to him.

    The property at bar, the caretaker Mr Vicente is being used by Mr Corona. At that point in time, 1990, any additional properties that Corona would be construed already as ill-gotten weath.

    Mr Vicente had P3M to pay for the lots (7parcels from Cristina and a number N parcels from Miriam.). He paid for the lot’s “absolute deed of sale” from his P3M. But he did not pay for the transfer of ownership’s tax and documentation of around P2,000 – P3,000 according to him, he had no more money. Has he built his big house before paying the lot/s?
    Where is Miriam, why did she entrust Cristina with power-of-attorney?
    Atty Kim Henares testified that Mrs Corona’s never appeared with an ITR but in the alpha list when she was the CEO, director, president and COO of camp john hay GOCC.
    Let’s file a case of tax evasion for Mrs Corona, shall we?

    • jan lim

      yes, a bonsai can be sold at that amount, it is his passion, he would only sell his price winning creation at the right price. out of the 3k bonsai theres only 2k bonsai left in his garden, that means he already sold a few of his creation which he uses to pay for his passion and to have a comfortable life. as you have said he pays 35k annualy for his RPT.

      he only paid 1.018 M, from the questioned property (not 3M). he paid for it when his heavy machinery business was about to close down. that meant that he has no more income after buying the property and constructing his house. 

      thats right it would only take about 2 to 3k of taxes, but, in order to do so, you have to pay for the petiotion to clear all the encumbrances therein, and you have to pay the lawyer who would do so, and you also have to pay the court who woud hear it, and pay for the advertisement in the leading newspapers for 30 days, and still have to pay taxes upon taxes in the local RPT and in the RD, which in my estimate would take abou 30% of the purchased price, which is about 300k. 

      i don’t know about your godfather, maybe he is just too trusting to hand him over the deed of sale. but did he also handed him the original title without receiving any money? if he did then he is truly a trusting person.

      of course mrs corona would never appear with an ITR because she in in the alpha list, because she is an employee. her income tax would be automatically deducted by her employer. every employee whose income is automaticaly deducted would be in the alpha list, that’s why she appeared on that list.if youre an employee you would know this, because you are not required to file your ITR every january….

    When Demetrio Vicente testified that he owned the properties and yet after 21 years of alleged possession the title is still in Cristina Corona’s name,  he and Serafin Cuevas are mocking the intelligence of the Senate-Judges, and that of the Filipino people.

      if you are a holder of an original title, and its pertaining documents of purchase, its enough to claim ownership. in fact, its a common thing, a lot of lot owners have titles in different names, as long as they have all the pertaining documents. kami ganyan din mas matagal pa

      simple, bonsai is an art, a life’s passion, he could have sold that for more than 1k, but he didn’t because its his passion, his therapy, and his life. i food on my table, and roof over my head, thats enough. and granting that i have that money to pay the transfer tax, you would still have to pay for the petition in the court to clear the encumbrances therein, and after that pay for its advertisement in the leading newspapers for 30 days, pay for the lawyers, and still have to pay taxes after taxes. that’s also the reason why our lot, whom my dad bought more that 30 years ago is still not in our name, my dad past away in 2004, we are his heirs, and we have the original title and the deed of sale, that means, NO ONE CAN CLAIM IT FROM US…… also just like the lot we inherited we also sold it just using the original title (which is also not in our name, because its still in the name of my grandfather).

      so quit it, it not uncommon to see properties not in their name… im not saying not to put it in your name. anytme that you have enough money and time to spend then go ahead!!!, but until then, its enough to have the original title to claim its ownership..

        Your case is the cost of not transferring the property before our elderly dies. 
        That is related to what people are asking – why he didn’t want to transfer the property to his name when he is still alive because it will more expensive and more complicated issue for his wife and daughter once he die.The answer – the property doesn’t really belongs to him. Corona just make up a story in the past regarding the selling, fake selling using unlicensed notary public, to make people believe that he is not earning much

      • jan lim

        he died in 2004, which means its still over 21 years that my father did not transfer the property to his name, why? because; a) my father doesn’t have enough money left to transfer the property to his name, b; he bought the property to a relative thats why he is not in a hurry to transfer it, c; when he died we simply adjusted the deed of sale to my mom.

        i don’t think when you notarized any document you will ask the notary public for his license. its what everyone does, did you asked any notary public for his license before being sworned?

      i would say what you think is not what the old man is thinking…at his age and condition and being a stroke survivor like me, money and property is not much of a priority….what he is after for now is doing things that will makes him happy and satisfied, where money cannot buy…. and that something ordinary person without values may not be able to understand.

      paimbestigaan nga yan si tupas..nasa SALN kaya niya ang mga lupa yan at saan galing ang pera niya???????natural, nakaw sa kaban ng gobyerno,.. nagmamalinis pa,,,pwee..

      • jan lim

        hehehe, alam mo bang wala pang natatangal sa gobyerno regarding sa pagkakamali nila sa SALN, kasi may corrective measures yan, you can correct your SALN anytime. being in the government for more that 10 years, it is only now that we are taking time to coorect our SALN’s because of the impeachment of CJ Corona, pero kung hindi sya na impeach, everyone just take it as another requirement to get your salary.

        merong 2 empleyado ng SC ang tinanggal na dahil sa SALN.

  • kawatancila

    is it true mang demetrio owned a 10 door apartment, yet he said he has no money to pay for the transfer, I really dont believe you owned that marikina property, 
    22 yrs na d mo nilipat ang property sa name mo…wahahaha..
     what happen if you suddenly die ,,, laking problema  yan,,, deed of sell lang hawak mo…wahahha….. non sense yun razon na wala kang pera para ma gastos,,,
    kung 10 na parcels ang lupa,, why not mortgage one of those lot and pay the cost for transferring the title in your name……i do believe caretaker ka lang,,, una relative ka ni cj corona, second d mo pa nililipat sa name mo…. usually ang sistema ng mga madaming lupa ay mag gawa ng kunwaring absolute deed of sale sa kamaganak… siempre mahihiya ito na angkinin,,, besides pinatitira siya doon sa property,    o kaya me side contract sila….wahaaha
    me alam akong ganyan ang tactics ,, i knew a landowner whose agricultural land is subject to CARP or land distribution. ng DAR ang ginawa na paraan ,, hinati ang benenta kuno sa mga kamaganak ang lupa para ito ay d na ma kuha ng CARP… he divided it among his relatives kuno…   sabay pirma ng I owe you… ng mga relatives ,,, na wari me utang sila sa kanya, just in case angkinin nila me hawak siyang,, papers na naka sangla naman sa kanya ang lupa…

  • Patas

    SIge payag akong maging testigo itong mga bonsai plants….basta makakapanumpa sila sa harap ng hukuman, puwede silang maging witness.

    We will never know the truth about the ownership over this land of bonsais until Mr. Vicente actually applies and pays for transfer cerificates of title over said property and even then, it is still possible that he was just really babysitting over the property for Renato Corona with the understanding that in due time(borrowing a favorite phrase of RC), the old deed of sale will be ignored as if no property was sold and ownership stays as titled. For what consideration, who knows. A number of known Marcos cronies did the same for the dictator and presumably ended up with ill-gotten wealth in their portfolio after he died. But would Mr. Vicente actually have the title transferred to his name? We’ll see. Would Renato Corona sacrifice his wife’s property? We’ll see.

  • omg11

     No amount of evidence will suffice for the skeptics.

    • http://civilservice.boxpinoy.com/civilserviceexam.php Rorschach

      yeah, why can’t CJ just testify and prove that these skeptics are wrong.

      • omg11

        The defense aren’t done yet on their presentation, are they?

        But I agree with you… the best witness would be Corona himself. I hope they will let him testify.

      • http://civilservice.boxpinoy.com/civilserviceexam.php Rorschach

        He’s willing to testify?

      • omg11

         I thought he said he is willing to testify if the need arises. In the end, he might be forced to testify. We just wait and see because I believe all the senators are also expecting him to testify. If he really want to be acquitted, he must testify if his conscience is clear.

      • kambaltuko

        why took him ti long to testify his attorny is going to call senador to witness but senator have nothing todo with the saln of corona ia thought he is best attorny …if he prove that senator is not truth in thier saln is that mean itis ok that corona is not telling the truth too so corona is quilty ..

  • IronMan8888

    This is an example of how the Coronas steal from other people even to their close relatives.

    The guy is either a dummy caretaker or a known fool which the Coronas are taking advantage with.

    If the Coronas are honorable people, they should have insisted to this guy who is close to their family to transfer the land title to his name. Any sane and honorable lawyer knows this.

    I wonder how they stole the Basa Guidote company.

    The senator judges should remove Corona. The guy is of questionable character not befitting to a SC Chief Justice.

      This is judgmental to Mr. Vicente in so many ways. Neither the two of us, nor anyone here, really knows the story of this person, and yet someone who bash him stories just like that? I’m not for anyone, it’s just that I think let’s be more sensitive when we make comments like this.

      • IronMan8888

        @twitter-244862180:disqus Al Japney J. LoredoI stand by what I said based on my observations in his testimonies to the impeachment court.

      • http://twitter.com/akosijapney Al Japney J. Loredo

        Don’t get me wrong, sir. It’s just saddening that those were just mere prejudice. However in the end of the trial, and if and if your observations are correct, it’s only by then, your comment shall meet it’s end.

    If the people supporting the President are to be called fool because they support a person whose intentions are well meaning, I guess the people supporting someone, who in most probability unjustly enriched himself while serving the government, deserve better to be called fools of fools.  Calling the president bald may be factual as he is already sporting thinning hair.  But calling him gay is inappropriate unless the people calling him such are of the same feathers.  Are you also a gay?
