Corona risks conviction by not testifying, prosecutors say

MANILA, Philippines—Chief Justice Renato Corona would be risking conviction if he opts not to take the stand at his impeachment trial, House prosecutors said Saturday.

Only Corona, not indirect witnesses, could shed light on his statements of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALNs), dollar accounts, the sale of properties to his daughter, and his vote on key cases, prosecutor Bayan Muna party-list Rep. Neri Colmenares said.

“All this he has to testify on. Otherwise, they’re courting conviction especially since many senator-judges think he has to testify. That means they’re not satisfied with defense evidence so far presented. I don’t think the defense has a choice,’’ Colmenares said in a telephone interview.

Besides, Corona’s failure to testify would be taken against him, said Marikina Rep. Romero Federico Quimbo, the prosecution’s official spokesperson.

The defense panel has balked at presenting Corona and his wife Cristina as witnesses when the trial resumes on May 7 to shield them supposedly from intense grilling and ridicule.

“We completely disagree,”  defense lawyer Tranquil Salvador III said in a text message. “The manner by which we present evidence is what we think is the best way to defend the chief justice. The ploy of the prosecution now is to push us to follow their dictates on how we should present our evidence.’’

The defense panel  refuted the prosecution’s initial claim that Corona had 45 properties through the testimony of various government officials, without the need for Corona’s testimony, he said.

Corona is accused of betrayal of public trust, graft and corruption, and culpable violation of the Constitution stemming from non-disclosure and inaccurate preparation of his SALNs; bias in a decision favoring Philippine Airlines on the retrenchment of flight attendants and in a ruling favoring former President Macapagal-Arroyo.

Colmenares said he understood the defense lawyers’ concerns that Corona would be grilled by the senator-judges on Articles 2, 3 and 7, but this was the only way the issues could be clarified.

“All this is damaging to the chief justice. If he testifies, the chances that he will survive are small. He has to admit to one thing, like how much is his income, and how did he manage to buy this property of this cost. He’ll crack during the cross-examination,’’ he said.

“He’s forced to good. He has to do it. All this could not be explained by indirect witnesses,’’ Colmenares added. “It would look bad if he allows his wife to testify, but he himself won’t testify.’’

Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and other senators have said it would be wise for Corona to take the stand.

Quimbo said that the trial, being political in nature, demands that the accused take the witness stand and answer questions from the senator-judges, “otherwise this will be taken against him.’’

“If he doesn’t show up, people will take this against him and think that he’s hiding something. They have no choice but to present him,’’ Quimbo said.

Quimbo agreed that only Corona could testify on the entries in his SALNs, including the acquisition costs of his various properties, and source of the P32.6 million withdrawn from his account on Dec. 12, 2011; and the sale of their properties to a daughter, among others.

“He has spoken in public. All the more the public expects him to testify under oath,’’ he said.

Colmenares said he believed that there was no need for the impeachment court to define whether non-disclosure of SALN and wealth constituted betrayal of public trust.

“For me betrayal of public trust is very clear. Your oath of office is to follow the law, follow the Constitution and serve the public. Any act which is in violation of the law is betrayal of public trust,’’ he said.

    This is another vindication of Comenares’ foolishness! if Corona is risking conviction by not taking the witness stand in the IC, why should Colmenares be worried about it? It is the problem of the defense panel.. NPKA TNGGA SI COLMENARES! He doesn’t even know that it is a reason to rejoice!! BBO!

  • popeyee

    Another propaganda by the prosecution team. Whether Corona testify or not, for them and the palace they already concluded that Corona is guilty. At di ba sabi nila napakalakas ng kanilang evidence, so bakit pa nila hihikayating mag testify si Corona? It is none of their business whether to let Corona testify or not. 

  • aldhins

    Siguro  mas mapapadali ang impeachement trial pag si CJ Corona ang humarap at ipagtanggol ang sarili pero  baka ganyan talaga ang gusto ng  depensa may iba pa silang paraan at saka  may mga bagong witness na mas makakatolong sa kanila mag hintay muna tyo.

  • popeyee

    If Corona is risking conviction by not testifying in the court, wouldn’t it be good for the prosecution, Cong. Colmenares? Di ba usto nyo siyang ma-convict, by hook or by crook? Ikaw lang yata ang nasa prosecution side na ayaw ma-convict si Corona.

    • Rex_Ranhilio

      Given Colmenares’ statement i think it’s time for you to re-think your claim that the prosecution wants to convict him by hook or by crook.

      • popeyee

        No amount of rethinking can disprove the palace’s eagerness, through his allies in  congress, to convict the CJ. Their plan B just in case the CJ will be acquitted is a solid proof…

      • Rex_Ranhilio

        Are you saying that if the Chief Justice is convicted by the impeachment court, it would not be because of the merits of the case?

  • Rex_Ranhilio

    “The manner by which we
    present evidence is what we think is the best way to defend the chief
    justice.” – Tranquil Salvador

    Correct. But if you exercise your right not to present your client as a witness, don’t complain of miscarriage of justice/ mistrial if he is found guilty.

  • cliff_castillo

    Normally, when you are accused you always want to present your side.  In this impeachment case, Corona is being given the chance to present his side but he is even reluctant or afraid.  What does this mean?  It is obvious he cannot explain his side because he is guilty.

    • popeyee

      Any accused can present his side with or without personal appearance to the court…

      • aristeosj

        forrtunately or unfortunately,this is an impeachment trial,not
        an ordinary trial.corona went media-hopping awhile back
        defending himself.i do not know why he is hesitant to
        take the stand just because his ‘abogados-de-campanilla’

        say so who are treating this trial as an ordinary trial and
        corona as an ordinary client..this will also shorten the life of
        this trial.why prolong the agony when,according to corona,
        he has nothing to hide.

      • relojero1

        What you saying aristeosj was done by the prosecution panel before what goes around comes around I cannot imagine why the prosecutors are teaching the defence what to to. They are just presenting evidences lets wait and see

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_O5TQQYPGVHXCQLU4BRQR4FVBNA ramone

        But that is precisely the problem – he presents his side outside the court, where the listeners are chosen by him. He has presented his side only before his loyalists. Can his testimony stand before the scrutiny of logic and adversarial cross examination. In the eyes of the people, hiding behind the a friendly audience is a sign of guilt.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/JERRIXDILGTSWZ43WTHPAF4RF4 Rodger

    Corona already testified in public! He failed miserably to convince the public! What more do you people want?

    I’m certain Cuevas already grilled him saying:
    Cuevas: Mr. chief justice, do you know what will happen if you don’t tell the truth?
    Corona: I imagine that our side will win.

    So, why take the risk? Let the defense prevent Corona from testifying at all cost!

    Only the innocent will benefit from testifying……….

    and Corona knows his law.

  • MGS12

    Yun naman pala e… Higher probability of conviction pag hindi nag testify. So why are these prosecutors bothering to make these statements? E di hayaan na lang sana nila na hindi humarap sa IC para mas maganda chances nila na manalo.

    • Rey Baltazar C. Tolentino

      puede rin yung sinasabi mo kaya lang baka mag dahilan pa si Corona na sa ‘technicalities’ at ‘politics’ lang siya natalo. Oh di may puntos pa siya sa Criminal Case na isasampa sa kanya sa susunod.

  • mad_as_Hamlet

    “It is easier for God to make a camel out of a needle’s eye, than for Corona to pass through the door of the Impeachment Court and testify.”

    Epistle of Mad, 20:12

  • oracle888

     Three circumstances under which will determine if CJ Corona will testify or not:

    (1) If Corona camp thought that they will get enough votes from the bias senate-judges, Corona may either testify or not. He will testify to pretend he has nothing to hide; but will not testify due to the risk of being interrogated by several impartial senator-judges that could result to his unbearable embarrassment..

    (2) If Corona camp thought they have only 50-50 chance of being convicted, Corona may still either testify or not. He will testify only if he is really innocent to ensure that he be acquitted; but will not testify if he is guilty of the charges.

    (3) If Corona camp thought they will lose the impeachment case, Corona will take his last chance by presenting himself; and by truth and lies, to over turn the table in favor of himself.

    I am sure in Corona camp’s point of view, they believe currently that they have more than 50% of having Corona getting acquitted or obtaining a mistrial – not because they have disproved all the prosecutor’s evidences and witnesses, but because they think they have enough biasing pro-Corona judges on their side.

    And that’s why, Serafin Cuevas is still taking a “wait and see” approach with regard to Corona’s taking the witness stand.

    Nevertheless,  in the mind of the majority Filipino people, CJ Corona was already convicted of his violation and should be removed from the office.

    so what was the point of the comment? isn’t conviction what the prosecutors are after. how come they are telling Corona how to save himself? Haven’t they heard of Napoleon’s adage, when the enemy is making a mistake, do not interrupt him?  Almost every statement that comes from the prosecution tells you why they are considered the dumbest lawyers in the country.

  • tiopaero

    Senator Miriam Santiago said yesterday at University of Rizal graduation rite that Corona has a strong case in the impeachment trial but it will be more stronger if he personally testify.

    So what is the use of testifying if Corona has already a strong case according to Mirriam Santiago ?  dumb dumb prosecution once again !!!

        hehehe!!!you and your kind who are supporting corona are pathetic.
        they will cling to anything just so they can defend their patron and
        even believe the pronouncements of a certain sen santiago…waah!!!

      “more stronger” – If you call others “dumb dumb,” then it is better that you correct your grammar. Otherwise, you may just be describing yourself. 

  • oracle888

    The many bias and pro-Corona senator-judges, to name a few such as Miriam, Joker, Honasan and Legarda, have mocked the democratic constitutional process and fooled the Filipino people by pretending they are fair and unbiased either sitting quietly or raising up their loud sarcastic voices in their “political-showbiz” dramatic acts.

    Many of these senator-judges have already forgotten their sworn duty but continue to put politics into the impeachment proceeding.

    When those judges sit on their chairs, they should have kept in mind to put aside all political alliances and personal reason; and to be mindful only to the TRUTH and JUSTICE, and to differentiate between right and wrong with the goal of national interest.

    Otherwise, we the people are once again wasting our time watching this “stupid” drama, with a false hope that an unfit Chief Justice could be impeached and removed from his office by a court made up of majority bias and partial judges.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IZHI74IQXRUXUVEDHVAW2EKOLM Jonald

      • oracle888

        To be bias is to show prejudice for or against someone or something unfairly.

        While my subject is the senate-judges in the impeachment court who are expected to be neutral but to render verdict fairly according to the truth and justice, yet you are talking about someone else.

        Apparently you are bias too.

  • padrefaura

    by saying that if CJ will not testify, he risks conviction, then the prosecutors are saying that they are advicing CJ to testify so he would be acquitted.

    do you honestly think the prosecution are sincere in telling corona what to do in order be acquitted?

  • BatangSingapore

    Corona started testifying in public thru TV /Radio station visits but was cut-short due to his inability to execute his promised publicly (i.e. like opening his dollar account), his involvement in the BGEI family scandal, etc.. surely the defense will do everything not to bring him to witness stand… CORONA CORRUPTION IS JUST A SAMPLE OF OUR ROTTEN SUPREME COURT SYSTEM… WE NEED A CHIEF JUSTICE WHO WILL OVERHAUL THE JUDICIARY SYSTEM, A SYSTEM FOR THE PEOPLE FOR COMMON GOOD.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LLPTRPFUTYJXKI3KJS4B2UO4LI Jim De Garman

    the corona’s has no intention to testify before the IC, how could corona justify where his dollar deposits came from, his undeclared properties in the USA and the Philippines, BGEI money and dummies.

    ang sinungaling at magnanakaw na gaya ni corona ay di dapat manatili sa puwesto anuman ang kahihinatnan ng verdict ng mga judges, taong bayan ay nakaantabay para tanggalin si corona.

  • EdgarEdgar

    Corona risks conviction by not testifying, prosecutors say.

    Too little too late. That’s the risk of conviction. At this point, the senators especially those mulling over 2013 reelection and life after senate are becoming ever more grounded on reality. Thanks to their human qualities, they will vote for what is right. Not that they believe in what’s right, but they have more to gain by voting for acquittal. Take our favorite Kiko for example. If he votes to convict, he will only increase the competition and diminish his chances for the senate presidency. Even Tonto, or better known as the rebel without a cause, has not gained much favor for his efforts to get on the good graces of the fairy president. Quimbo of course knows that his is a lost cause. He’s just making the most of it just like any losing politician would. He should be fasting, repenting and flagellating as early as now, but instead he chose to talk. Because that’s all Quimbo’s got, cheap talk.
     

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_O5TQQYPGVHXCQLU4BRQR4FVBNA ramone

      The above comment assumes many points which need to be proven. Among other things, it assumes that voting for acquittal is what is right. Second, it assumes that senators can gain more politically if they vote for acquittal. The second assumption fails to take into account the current pulse of the people. Even if we grant that pragmatic considerations would influence the vote of the senator judges, it is doubtful that they consider a vote of acquittal to favor them politically. So far, there has not been a survey, conducted by by schools or reputable survey firms, that reports that majority of Filipinos want Corona acquitted. Corona’s defenders of course question the reliability of these surveys but they have been proven right several times in the past.

      EdgarRdagar, a commenter here in PDI says that you are MidasMidas. Are you?

      • EdgarEdgar

        That’s the beauty of the Internet. We can always reinvent ourselves. In real life, I’m just Midas the court jester, but here I can be a dead comedian or anyone I want to be. I’m sure Noynoy is hiding somewhere in this forum or elsewhere under his girlie pseudonym. So are Lamierda and Apigail who are desperately wreaking more damage than doing control. Just the other day, before I took to my bed, I saw our little lady of VMMC or her picture in a forum. I’m sure she’s having a grand time in her little garden planning for what turns out to be a wet summer. Far from the maddening crowd, I suspect she has a better handle on things in there than when she was out here. Truth be told, I am bubby dacer, straddling between the afterlife and this life eternally waiting for justice over my dead body.

      • TGM_ERICK

        Hahaha!

      • TGM_ERICK

        Who do you think killed bubby dacer? I am speculating on Almonte and his big time close friend.

      • EdgarEdgar

        At this point, with layers upon layers of cover up, we’ll never really know who did it. We can only speculate as to who stands to benefit from Bubby’s passing. And there’s no shortage of candidates. Just like we’ll never know if Galman really pulled the trigger. But my guess is Ninoy desperately wanted to be a hero so he’d look for anyone to take him from behind sooner rather than later. We can rest assured though that when those really involved are gone, the truth will reveal itself. I may not live to see that day myself.

      • TGM_ERICK

        At this point in time do you believe that the truth about Ninoy’s death are known to some?

      • EdgarEdgar

        I think they do. But they’re just not talking. And since Noy and Tito Danding are now close, I don’t suppose it was him.

      • TGM_ERICK

        Who are you supposing. Come on I am intrigued. Although we are almost of the same age you seem to know more than I maybe because of you have closely worked with them and you re well read. :-)))

    Don’t Bite the Bait.
    The Defense has solid evidence. Evidence that shows there are no ill gotten wealth.
    The properties are just ordinary properties, legally acquired.
    The Prosecution has no evidence but only allegation, so far the allegations are all speculations and inuendos.

    The Prosecution are bunch of trash talkers not law wisdom gentlemen.
    For sure, trash talkers are only good as garbage and not in the courtroom.

      You are trying to say you are better than Sen. Enrile and Sen. Legarda, Sen. Drilon, and Sen. Escudero when they announced that taking the witness stand can clarify everything if he is clean or not. The Corona case is indefensible and there is never never instances that the Defense has evidence since your line of attack is object and delete ,suppress and exclude motions.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Elroy-Ampuller/100000287998302 Elroy Ampuller

         those senators only want CJ to appear on witness stand( except drilon because he wanted  CJ to be stripped  naked) to unburden them if they vote on acquittal because they know that this impeachment is only an act of vengeance from Abnoy bec of HL ruling…it’s more Funnot in the Philippines !!

      • RomyLitz

        Your logic and arguments are conflicting. How could Sen. Enrile et al can unburden themselves in acquitting Corona when Sen. Drilon can singlehandedly unmasked the inveterate liar Corona? The reason of Enrile et al is to let Sen. Drilon and patriotic senators to remove the veil that Corona is a fake fighter of democracy and judiciary via his unexplainable fat dollar account and BGEI and Gun poking act to an octagenarian and fake scholastic awards and so on and so forth. Re read your comments before posting as I repeat, they are very conflicting and revealing one’s IQ level.

  • RomyLitz

    Based on UP Dilliman surveys, Ateneo and de La Salle, and internationally accredited by world’s Gallup SWS and Pulse Asia and lately the CEAP showed that Corona is guilty. Chiz and Miriam already said, the surveys and the people’s pulse greatl affects their decisions. Majority believes that if he is CLEAN why not take the witness stand. TRUTH will set him free if he is innocent ,BUT the TRUTH will convict him too if he comes to court with very dirty hands.

  • RomyLitz

    If the Corona case is not indefensible how come the Defense talked only of the inaccurate 45 properties but very quiet as the sea when these three items are discussed, (1) BGEI Co. Ltd. (2) Sis Flory and Ana and (3) PH.D ( Pheso, Dollar) accounts.? Why the Defense insist that these are irrelevant when what they actually meant was that the Corona case is indefensible.

  • RomyLitz

    To Corona Lawyers,

    Stop talking about the 45 properties, let us start new issues you long wanted to hide or suppress, they are, BGEI, Dollar Accounts, Sis. Flory and Ana, Gun poking incident and lastly, the embellishly fabricated scholastic awards of Corona? Why dont we talk about these?

    Corona lied about academic honors?

    False claims

    In college, a commencement program dated April 19, 1970 indicates Corona graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He did not qualify for academic honors, as  he claimed in his resumé and on the SC website.  
    Incumbent SC Associate Justice Antonio T. Carpio and the late activists Edgar M. Jopson and Emmanuel F. Lacaba were among his batchmates in college. Jopson was the valedictorian of Corona’s high school batch.

    High School

    Corona graduated from the High School department of the Ateneo on April 30, 1966 and was merely awarded a silver medal under the category of “Activity Awards.” This was for his involvement in the Science Club.

    But he was not a part of the elite list of those who graduated with honors, contrary to claims in his resumé and the SC website.

    Amplified

    From the grade school, he graduated on March 22, 1962 with an “Honorable Mention” academic award, and not a “gold medal” as claimed in the SC website.  

    The gold medal he received was for an “Academic Contest Award” in spelling (Pilipino).

    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.

    The Senators will likely vote for acquittal because majority of them lives in glass houses. They know that if the impeachment is successful, none of them will be rest assured that it will not happen to them in some form or another. Can you seriously believe that these senators has never betrayed public trust, committed graft and corruption, and culpable violation of the Constitution?

  • False_Prophet

    In most civilized nations, this would be true, and the case would be a convincing impeachment. But this is the Philippines, where there are corrupt election rigged Senator Judges, who are part of the cabal of thieves, and are intent on setting the vile pig faced Corona free. The people know that these Senators, like Arroyo, Revilla, Honosan, Santiago, Legarta, Lapid, Marcos, and Villar, and others who are not putting the welfare of the People and Nation first, before their own greedy interests. One can hope that there will be a change of mind in these Senators, but the Prosecutors should never take that for granted, no matter how convincing the evidence is.

    • Ulipur

      Arroyo, MDS, Marcos, Revilla, and Villar are widely perceived to be for the acquittal of Renato. Lapid may be included. So if the perception is correction then it is a matter of just obtaining the support of at least two or three more senator and Renato and Gloria will be singing HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN.

      • False_Prophet

        But the story will not end there. It will and must continue, even if the People take the demand of Corona’s resignation to the streets, or even in the next round of Senatorial elections where the pro Corona Senators are booted out of office.

  • GKid

    It will be surprising if the CJ doesn’t testify at the end of the trail. The defense is already setting up their finale by presenting corroborating witnesses that will affirm the CJ’s testimony. It will be hard to prove that the CJ is lying when other witnesses have already attested his testimony.

  • tarikan

    Chief Justice Renato Corona is likened by his supporters and Manong Johnny to Jesus Christ. Christ was crucified because of the demands of a lynch mob. It’s foolish to compare Renato C. (Christ) Corona to the Lord Himself. Corona poked a gun to an old, hapless caretaker. He expropriated the wealth of the relatives of his wife. He accumulated high end condos/penthouse/prime lots as if he has a harem to take care of. He maintains a multiple bank accounts in pesos and in US dollars (to park his kalakalan earnings?). Yes, I know you Corona supporters will say “that amounts to nothing, no evidence.” I think Christ did not do all of this. He did not betray people’s trust. 

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/JERRIXDILGTSWZ43WTHPAF4RF4 Rodger

      You don’t think or assume what Christ did, you just believed! You take it or leave it.
      RC and JC has no comparison and it’s a wrong analogy.

      Christ sacrifice His life so that others may live and have a better life. Corona sacrifice the life of others so that he may live and have a better life.

      • johndcross1

        Amen to that!

    • Rey Baltazar C. Tolentino

      I think senate president Enrile is not comparing CJ Corona
      with Christ but rather he give emphasis on people’s clamor as against right and
      wrong because of the outcome of survey. He is simply saying ‘popular views does not necessarily mean the correct one’.  Nonetheless, I do not agree with him because, in a
      democratic country, people’s decision is always the correct one. Christ died on the cross not because of people’s choice. He died because it is planned by God to save us.

  • Rathbumo

    You’re engaging the Chief Justice and his defense team in a psy-war. I hope you succeed since you’ve proven nothing against Corona so far. All your evidences particularly on those 45 properties turned out to be a dud. Pagbutihin nyo. Corona and atty. cuevas are too wise to bite your bait.

    • hukom2

      That is your presumption! Can they be wiser than the majority of the Filipinos? I don’t think so!

      • Rathbumo

        Still, the prosecution has to prove that Corona is guilty beyond reasonable doubt. That judgement will be rendered by the Senator-judges and not the surveys done by False Asia and SWS.

    • johndcross1

      Baloney!  Stop harping on the 45 properties.  No evidence?  Are you blind?

      • RomyLitz

        John, Rathbumo is definitely one of Corona’s cronies therefore they have to cast furious aspersions on the several surveys group.

      • Rathbumo

        I don’t care what happens to Corona. Whether he will be acquitted or convicted doesn’t change my life. I am just one of those who believe in the rule of law that a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt. I don’t believe in surveys also because they are self serving.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/MT3VVU4H6ALEJNPBICFBBDOMHU Rex

        If you will recall, the prosecution was walloped in two days of faulty witnessing by LRA Administrator Eulalio Diaz III who turns to be the nephew of Justice Antonio Carpio, about the 45 properties allegedly owned by Corona. That’s why Diaz was castigated by Senator-judges Loren Legarda, Jinggoy Estrada, Pia Cayetano, and Miriam Defensor Santiago. Legarda even demanded that the prosecution and Diaz issue an apology for misleading the Impeachment Court. Inamin din ni Tupas na hindi aabot sa 45 properties ni Corona.  Be objective and realistic, boy. At yung ibang ebidensiya, kailangang patunayan ng prosecution na kay Corona nga ang mga yon.

      • jiroarturo

        Naintindihan mo ba kung paano lumabas ang 45 properties? Sa Metro Manila lang yon. Hindi pa nga nag research sa Batangas at Amerika at sa iba pang sulok ng Pinas. Lalabas ang mga iyon sa next impeachment. Baka lalong titibay ang ebidensiya ng prosecution next time around.

    Corona lied about academic honors?

    False claims

    In college, a commencement program dated April 19, 1970 indicates Corona graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He did not qualify for academic honors, as  he claimed in his resumé and on the SC website.  
    Incumbent SC Associate Justice Antonio T. Carpio and the late activists Edgar M. Jopson and Emmanuel F. Lacaba were among his batchmates in college. Jopson was the valedictorian of Corona’s high school batch.

    High School

    Corona graduated from the High School department of the Ateneo on April 30, 1966 and was merely awarded a silver medal under the category of “Activity Awards.” This was for his involvement in the Science Club.

    But he was not a part of the elite list of those who graduated with honors, contrary to claims in his resumé and the SC website.

    Amplified

    From the grade school, he graduated on March 22, 1962 with an “Honorable Mention” academic award, and not a “gold medal” as claimed in the SC website.  

    The gold medal he received was for an “Academic Contest Award” in spelling (Pilipino).

    “Thief” Justice Renato Corona on Wikipedia

    Fake Chief Justice finished doctorate without required dissertation

    First, UST requires a dissertation. Dissertation writing takes all of 15 units spread out in four
    courses.Second, only students who complete their doctorate degrees in five years are qualified to graduate with honors: “A student who has overstayed beyond the residency limit…will also be disqualified to graduate with honors.”Corona does not have a dissertation. Neither did he fulfill the five-year residency requirement.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/JERRIXDILGTSWZ43WTHPAF4RF4 Rodger

    It does not end with corona even if he’s acquitted. There is still next year to file another impeachment and the next and the next. There is still the election, we will have a sympathetic representative reflecting the majority’s voice by then, we will go with others and expose their corrupt practices irrespective who they are be it the president, senators, congressman, justices, judges, commissioners and any public servant. Fighting for truth & justice has no timeline.

        Pagkatapos ng ilang panahon, lumabas na ang mga akusasyon.
        Sabi ko na naman, totoo kaya lahat yan? Bakit naging justice yan kung hindi maayos mag-isip, parehas at matalino yan? Paano nakalusot yan sa konseho ng mga abogado?

        Sa isang banda naman sabi ko, kung ako si Corona malamang na
        aalis ako sa puwesto pag sinabi ng isang presidenteng mapagbintang pero malapit sa mga tao. Kung baga sa kuwento, okay lang sa akin tutal hindi naman ako ang nawalan ng karangalan eh. Sila ang nawalan ng isang katulad ko.

        Pero ang siste, nung magsalita na si Corona para ipagtanggol

    Good. Now let’s all stop those idle speculations and give him the chance to decide his own destiny.

  • w4d

    Corona is hesitant or refuses to testify because he will be ridiculed, per his defense team. This after publicly proclaiming that he can easily smash all the evidence presented, and explain the details of each cent in his peso and dollar account. What he failed to consider then were the Basa family showing up and the Robles expose’. Now his story suddenly aren’t realistic anymore.

    He will have to “face the music” if he was a man of principle. Of course, if you are one with dirty secrets to hide, then it is best to shun away, albeit he will still be ridiculed for years to come.

    “We completely disagree,”  defense lawyer Tranquil Salvador III said in a text message. “The manner by which we present evidence is what we think is the best way to defend the chief justice. The ploy of the prosecution now is to push us to follow their dictates on how we should present our evidence.’’

    not just the prosecution demanded this but the senators themselves, especially JPE who believed that only corona can give light to these allegations against him…the people too, clamored and demanded it, that he testified…

    • RomyLitz

      It is highly probable that Salvador is speaking for himself. Atty. Esguerra, weeks ago, if Corona is holding the TRUTH, any cross or redirect cross cant break him. Goes to show, that the Defense themselves are disoriented, disorganized and as a result more so of becoming illogical in justfying Corona’s by passing the witness stand yet allowed him to proceed with media blitz uncensored. The Defense Team are on the verge of breaking up if they want to keep their precious sanity, at least to the millions watching and observing them.

    If one truly believes that he hasn’t done anything unlawful, why not testify? The defense team has claimed its client would be grilled by senators and prosecutors. Are they saying that’s more important than the truth Mr Corona has to say in court? Maybe if they think more skeletons are in the closet!

    • gray_c

      I concur.  If the CJ has done nothing wrong then he must stand up like a real man deserving of respect and present his accounts – disclose all.  If indeed he is innocent of any wrongdoing, then let him to be acclaimed.  After all, this was his promise?  Presently, it appears that the CJ may not stand behind his own words, and that quite simply, would be nothing less than a national disgrace. The impeachment court is not a court of law – it is the people vs Corona.  The onus is upon him to clear his name – nothing less.

    SPECULATION, SPECULATIONS AND MORE SPECULATIONS PLEASEEEEEEEE

    some said that the prosecution were dumb…yes, they are dumb, but, they never lost their composure, they never lost their mind, the never lost their civility…all they did were accept those attacks, going through one ear, passing to the other end…in spite of this, they stand their ground, waiting for some more beating, insults from these senator judges, such that, these judges lost themselves, their sanity in so doing their attacks, forgot that they are judges, raved and ranted the litany of insults, mad as a rabid wolves, one after the other rammed their attacks until they lost their composure, bare themselves of their true self, and looked dumber than these prosecution lawyers  were… so by these seemingly display of intellect, who among them looked dumber after all????

    • ALONZO15

      He who laughs last, laughs the best. It seems like it’s just a matter of time the Prosecutors will prosecute Corona. Sen. Santiago and Arroyo are doing their best to defend Corona pero mukhang mas lalong sumasama ang tingin ng tao hindi lang sa kanilang dalawa kundi pati kay Corona. Arroyo has forgotten his famous slogan “Kung Bad ka, lagot ka.” and is now living up to his name JOKE-er. Well for Santiago. it seems she has totally lost her mind.

    oh nasan na ba yung dollar accounts? ilalabas na ba?

    sa dollar accounts palang wala na lusot yang si corona. talona na siya sa hindi pgdedeclare ng dollar accounts niya. boom!

  • oracle888

    According to the Interaksyon News:

    “MANILA, Philippines – Senator Lito Lapid, one of the judges in the impeachment trial of Chief Justice himself the subject of a discreet inquiry by the Office of the Ombudsman, its curiosity triggered about the lawmaker’s reportedly fabulous assets here and abroad.

    The anti graft watchdog, mandated by law to conduct investigations motu propio or even in the absence of a formal complaint, started making quiet inquiries about the senator’s own assets and liabilities shortly after his wife Marissa was caught red-handed by US authorities with some $50,000 at the McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas on January 15.”

    The story then elaborated a short background of Lito Lapis and the discrepancies of his 2011 SALN with those properties he owned, especially the “mansion” he owned in Las Vegas which was not included in the SALN. It then publiced a picture of Lapid’s mansion which could cost millions of dollars.

    It will be interesting and beneficial to the Filipino people if each of the Senator, Congressman and other high government officials shall be required by law to publish and open their books showing their actual assets and business connection to the media so we shall know if one is corrupt or not. A civic organization in coordination with the media shall monitor and analyze the SALN of each officials and shall be financed by the Administration immediately.

    As a side comment, how can a person who was himself suspicious of ill-gotten and unexplainable wealth becomes a senator-judges to judge someone who was charged of the same crime?

    • anu12345

       By “a person”, you mean he’s the only one of the senator-judges?

      If this is the case, then I would assume he’d have a hard time convicting CJC of Article 2.

      Not unless its a political decision, which the Impeachment, after all, is.

  • Pepe Smith

    Hahaha, these dumb prosecutors are still dreaming despite being jolted by a 10 million lightning. They know that they FAILED TERRIBLY in their case because of their poor preparation and lack of evidence. The only thing that keeps them going is the knowledge that whatever happens in this case, they will be generously rewarded with bloated pork barrels by the Palace occupant.

    • JosephNess

      on the other hand, let us know about how your boss clear his name on these hidden dollar accounts, which if not found by these you called dumb prosecutors, these large deposits dollar bank accounts will stay hidden…what say you ? and don’t forget too the illegal sale of the BGEI property, not for long, this will be known too, the surviving Basa heirs were just standing by, you know…the way people see it, the other side were trembling in panic…just watch…

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        You seem to be very familiar with the ‘LARGE’ amount in the dollar accounts. Do you have personal knowledge of these accounts and their amounts?

        If that is the case, please provide us with factual evidence that will stand in court.

        If not, then, please tell us you’re just speculating.

        Just the facts, because 5 is 45 only when you’re speculating something.

        I too, can speculate, you see.  I speculate around 7.2K in the usd bank accounts.

      • JosephNess

        what is important to this issue was these five dollar bank accounts were found and in existent under the name of the CJ personal bank accounts at PSBank…

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_SS36UV5JGDGV2KAKNQKZJSASCA Hernando

    atty salvador , for us ordinary citizens , it doesnt matter wether it’s  45 or 25 properties . what really matters is why he was able to buy a property at the bellagio or at the mackinley … 

    Another what matters to us is why in hell , that the  thief justice does not allow to open his account .. BAKIT MAY BAHO BA …. 

  • JosephNess

    just for the sake of considerations and credit to the defense, that indeed the 45 properties where accepted as a lie, then, can anybody here clarify where did the CJ got the money paid in cash to these pricey condominiums, knowing fully well and not clarified to be sufficient, his inadequate income ? it’s just cleared by his being smart and clever how he got all his riches…it seems that by this assumptions of having his income intact untouched, to justify that he can afford the amount of these sales, but indeed failed to account for the expenses for their personal needs such as, money allocated for food, social functions, perks, private occasions, celebrations, and the likes, for sure they did some of these, which were costly too, to consider, yet, still have enough to pay these pricey condos in cash…there’s not just an ordinary accountant who can indeed make these both ends meet without losing his mind and making his hair gray…so, how did he really got all these money paid for these pricey condos, and in fact, still have various bank accounts with huge deposits, not counting the dollar accounts…it seems that he never lack riches in his pocket…

    • RomyLitz

      Rightly said, this Corona is in the SC not to serve the poor litigants nor the innocents but ostensibly to serve his base needs. His public and media TV and claimed he is fighting for democracy and the oppress judiciary is actually a travesty of justice and TRUTH. Now, listen this, the Defense had a problem justifying the 34.7 million Pesos yet they oepned their carelessness again that Corona is actually worth 90 million pesos?? They are like Corona, he sain in his media blitz to explain in IC about his dollar accounts, BGEI isses and gun poking in due time, yet the Defense says ” no need”. Doing so will be like taking the bait of the Prosectution? How come, Sen. Enrile and Sen. Legarda wanted him to appear at witness stand??
