Lawyers of Chief Justice Renato Corona have reservations about amending his statements of assets, liabilities and networth (SALNs) by April 30 lest this would be misconstrued as an admission of inaccuracies.

“We will have second thoughts on this. Anything that would be introduced at this point will prompt people to say, ‘Ah they’re admitting errors, or this is an afterthought,’” defense counsel Tranquil Salvador III said in a recent interview.

Between now and April 30, deadline for the filing of SALN, Salvador admitted that the matter “would require deep thinking on our part and on the part of the Chief Justice.”

Another defense counsel, Ramon Esguerra, said Corona still “has to meet his accountant” this weekend to discuss the matter.

At the impeachment trial on March 22, Senator Loren Legarda inquired if Corona would amend his SALNs, and lead defense counsel Serafin Cuevas said he could confer with the Chief Justice.

Internal Revenue Commissioner Kim Henares had testified that a SALN could not be corrected otherwise its filing would be useless.

Cuevas had been quick to argue that this was her own opinion.

Corona is accused of betrayal of public trust for his alleged nondisclosure of his SALN from 2002 to 2010, as well as his wealth, among other things.

It emerged during the trial that Corona declared his properties based on their fair market value, not acquisition cost, in his SALN from 2002 to 2010. Defense lawyers said this was the practice then.

According to Salvador, there are two schools of thought on amending SALNs. One is that every filing of SALN is considered separate, and hence, it can no longer be amended. The other is that every filing is a continuation of the previous ones, hence, it can still be “cured.”

He, however, said the defense lawyers have “second thoughts” about this idea since the SALN was the subject of the impeachment trial, which was suspended March 23, and resumes May 7.

Brainstorming among defense lawyers before Holy Week had been geared toward the same goal: To have the Chief Justice acquitted, defense lawyer Rico Paolo Quicho said.

“That will always be the agenda: how to accomplish that objective. Other than that, we really have to make sure that our witnesses are ready,” Quicho said.

The defense lawyers also aired second thoughts about allowing Corona and his wife Cristina to take the witness stand.

“If we feel that we have enough evidence to rebut [prosecution evidence] without presenting the Corona couple, that is an achievement for the defense team,” Quicho said.

Salvador said the cast of defense witnesses should “revolve around” the evidence so far presented at the trial.

    • JasminCubacub

      what is your business to know about his assets considering even the prosecution couldn’t allege any ill-gotten wealth on Corona’s part? you just want to be engaged in tsismis? 

      • KapitanBagwis

        If you think wanting to know how corrupt you idol is tsimis, then you are another one corrupt to the bones like him or maybe more than him. I am one of the Filipino people who want him out of the supreme court and eventually go to jail for betrayal of public trust.

      • JasminCubacub

        Do you have any sense of logic? I am not interested to engage in any tsismis or to have any dealing with you.. I am aware that you are one of those fuuuuuulish people who unlawfully seek Corona’s ouster. You belong to a lawless group.

  • http://pedestrianobserver.blogspot.com/ Political Jaywalker

    The idiocy never ends, SALN is submitted under oath therefore you attest to the accuracy of the factual statements contained therein. If you swore to the accuracy of what you declared how can you “cure” or correct what you swore under oath to now be “incorrect”?

    Is that the same reason why the SC keeps on flip flopping on their decision on the PAL labor dispute?

    If sworn statements are “curable,” what’s the point of swearing to the accuracy when it was never accurate in the first place? If that is the case people with decided cases in the SC must not respect it as it can change depending on how good your lawyer can write the justices letters.

  • dannyflorencio

    Ganda ng ngiti ni Corona kasi alam na niya na malapit na siyang ma-acquit.  hahahahaha tingnan mo picture ni Abnoy problemado kasi minumura na siya sa Mindanao ngayon. Malamang mabato pa yan ng sapatos ng mga tiga-Mindanao sa dialogue na darating eh !!

  • wyl5326

     From recent actions of Thief Justice, I’ve added more elements into his psychological profile from my amateurish/unlicenced practice.      It is human nature for us starting as  a child to begin with childish behavior, and I remember growing up as a little boy aping lead Actors that we saw on movies, because that is how we wanted to grow up. On the part of movie aspiring movie personalities, we have seen them striving to get as much publicity to further their acting career. Then as their stature in the moviedom was established, they tend to stay away from paparazzi and hated them ! That is pretty much how the life cycle of human beings work, no matter which career path we choose to take in life. We start from innocent childhood who knows nothing about life and some of us may have even eaten own feces as hungry babies when nobody have watch over us ! That is facts of life. Then there was the stage in our growing up when we crave to be center of attention and loves to have plenty of friends. However, there are some who grew up to be shy with others, but craves for lovenonetheless, but may not possessed the ability to get praises on their own merit. As children grows, they acquire skills and get praises for it, thus, some kids grew up to become great comedians, always making people laugh.      Some possessed innate intellectual intelligence very early and others are late bloomers, but both can become academic achievers later. Then there are also others who possessed neither inherent abilities, but learned to aced the system by whatever means they resorted to that was known to their fellow childhood playmates who then give them some monickers that stuck to their adulthood.  One such monicker that was given to Thief Justice in his biographical interview was “Siraniko”, a word play for his tinkering ability that he proudly claim that he have and led him to initially take up Management Engineering at Ateneo ! In his interview, he was proud to claim ability to fix things, but I seriously doubt it, because we have seen professional mechanics who intentionally disable machines/cars and then put it back together to claim credit/bills customers for part replacements that never happened ! If his childhood friends have given him that monicker, he must have been an aspiring mechanic but mostly failed to put it back to working condition to earn that name ! His craving to get praises is probably what drove him to embellish his academic achievements even from the elementary level in his own resume and biography ! Why resort to such craven dishonesty as if he have no fear of getting caught with his lies ?      As we just celebrated Holy week, Thief Justice have the temerity to commit blasphemy by comparing his impeachment to the Injustice of Christ himself ! How dare he thinks so highly of himself, and that must have turn-off lots of Senator-Judges that I sense his own stupidity is probably more of them are incline to convict him now ! That must have what caused him to claim lately that PNoy was sending out feelers for him to resign or retire now ! Unfortunately for him, he is finished and I hope the trial can end quickly and decisively !

    why the BIR is so powerless? i mean, why the BIR is subservient to the capricious intervention  of the lawmakers and the judiciary.  the BIR is supposedly a independent govt. dept. that is free from outside political influence and pressure.

    and yet, juan dela cruz is still wondering why the legal tax-evasion are so common and a pervasive practice by those who are in the know of the loop-holes to how to put their cash in dollar accounts out from the reach of the govt. scrutiny.

    the cj. corona’s SALN and dollar account issue are the living testimony  of this kind of erred application in SALN and exploitation of the legal loop-holes in tax codes.

  • mad_as_Hamlet

    Reading this jolted me a bit, “Ramon Esguerra, said Corona still “has to meet his accountant” this weekend. . . ” The thought of a lawyer announcing that his client would commit suicide this very weekend very briefly flashed through my mind. But upon reading further I realized he was talking about a mere accountant here on Earth—-one you pay for to produce the results you want. Not the one who makes you pay for the results you produced

    Anyway, if Mr. Corona’s lawyers do decide to have his SALNs corrected, they better not neglect to also change the certification there to read—“I hereby certify AGAIN to the best of my knowledge and information that these are complete and true statements of my assets, liabilities, net worth. . . .”

    And, of course, the so-called jurat will also look better this way, “Subscribed and Sworn to, AS USUAL, before me this . . . . . “

      Here in Germany, tax advisers who helped taxpayers “doctor” their income tax reports to evade paying high (read truthful) taxes are sent to jail and are made to pay stiff penalties for the transgressions they committed.

    If the SALN can be corrected anytime, then it is a useless document. Anybody being investigated will just say, wait a minute, I will make a correction…
    So palabas lang pala yung pronouncement ni Corona na I will reveal all, including the dollar accounts, in due time. Bola lang pala yung sinabi nya na he did nothing wrong, and he and his wife will testify.

    If you want to get a glimpse of Corona’s character, read his interview by Mia Gonzales in Raissa Robles blog. Corona is now known as “ISANG TAWAG KO LANG”.  He was boasting about his perks as a Malacanang official back then.

    Couldn’t we leave the lawyers out of this one?  They’re probably innocent and just fed with lies.  HEHEHE.

  • Rex_Ranhilio

    If I am not mistaken, the defense lawyers said Corona accomplished his SALN forms in good faith – which impliedly means that there are errors, but there was no malice intended.

    Now Salvador is concerned that they may be “admitting errors”.

    And now they are having “second thoughts” about “allowing” Corona and his wife to testify.

    If Corona truly believes that he has nothing to hide, he will testify, whether or not his lawyers will “allow” him. After all, he is the one on trial and not they.

    So what?  He can amend it as law allows, as long as his wealth came from honest source and as the CJ claimed before is because of years of hard work and saving.

    What his lawyers can do:

    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). 

    Corona lied about academic honors?

    http://wwwdotrapplerdotcom/newsbreak/652-updated-what-we-asked-ust-about-corona-s-thesis 

    just change the dot…

    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.

    College Degree without honors. Masters Degree without thesis. Doctoral degree without dissertation. SALN without acquisition cost.

      Chief Justice without any sense of justice

      • oracle888

        CJ Corona has “College Degree without honors. Masters Degree without thesis. Doctoral degree without dissertation. SALN without acquisition cost. A Chief Justice without any sense of justice”; but he did has a lot of ill-gotten wealth and unexplained dollar accounts. Furthermore, he had cornered Basa Corporation 34.8 millions plus ten years of interest (@8% annual compound interest shall give him a huge sum of 75.13 million).

        If he claimed those money are not his, then he has to return the 75.13 million to the corporation. Instead, he swallow it all but did not include them in his SALN.

    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.

He fired away his affirmative answer even when Sen. Loren was still talking. Now, they have second thoughts? Mag depins lawyers with out salt lol.

      • GProf007

They are sociopaths living in our version of reality except their concept of decency, morality empathy for others is different than ordinary people. The filtered layers in their prejudice brains make them think they are smart and believes that they comprise the majority despite evidence to the contrary. Like any sociopaths, they will eliminate any perceive threat to their social standing in any way possible. If this sickness progress, they became psychopaths. And then there is no cure.

    According to Salvador, there are two schools of thought on amending SALNs. One is that every filing of SALN is considered separate, and hence, it can no longer be amended. The other is that every filing is a continuation of the previous ones, hence, it can still be “cured.”

    I don’t understand why the defense lawyers are having problem with CJ’s SALN when they said the prosecution doesn’t have enough evidence to convict the CJ. When Marcos asked U.S. Sen. Paul Laxalt for advice on what he should do with his impending ouster during EDSA revolution; the famouse reply of Sen. Laxalt was  “You should cut and cut cleanly. The time has come.” The defense lawyers should also advice Corona to do the same.

    this is exactly the point of justice artemio panganiban in his article “Bitin” dated 25 march.

    an excerpt from the said article

    “By April 30—during the recess—all public officials will have to file their SALNs for 2011. Respondent will have to make a few crucial personal decisions. Will he disclose in his new SALN the acquisition cost of his assets, as opined by Senate President Enrile? Will he abandon his claim that he needs only to declare the market and assessed values that are used by city assessors to collect real estate taxes?
    So also, will he declare the actual deposits in his peso accounts? Will he also disclose the sums deposited in his dollar accounts which are already admitted by PSBank to be his? After all, he has promised to reveal his dollar deposits, which promise—by his own timeline—is now overdue.
    Will he admit to owning more than five real estate assets? Will he correct all his previous SALNs? If so, will he admit “errors” in them? Will such corrections exonerate him? Or will they in fact be deemed admissions of guilt?
    In addition to the above, the 6-week recess can produce new twists and turns, which may alter the complexion of this case. Or which may altogether make it obsolete, if the Supreme Court voids the entire Senate proceedings. In this event, will the Senate surrender its “sole power to try and decide” the impeachment trial? And will our people agree? Or will they again short-circuit the process by another nonviolent people power revolution?”

    Whether Corona amends his SALN or not will be problematic. Amending will mean an admission of guilt, while letting the SALN stay the way it is is contrary to revelations in the impeachment trial that he has various undeclared/underdeclared assets, in addition to his peso and dollar accounts.
    Another interesting development is the case filed against corona with the Anti-Money Laundering Authority (AMLA). This will show not only the deposits revealed during the trial, but all other deposits as well. Patay kang bata ka!

  • zahraff

    The truth will set you free. Once a SALN has been filed, it cannot be corrected, this CORONA knows vey well because it has already convicted and sent people to jail for such an infraction. NOBODY IS ABOVE THE LAW, and the law must be applied to anybody, whether you are the chief justice of the supreme court or not. Whether CORONA testifies or not is immaterial, because if CORONA testifies, he will be convicted, and if he does not testifies, conviction is still the verdict BECAUSE CORONA IS GUILTY of all the charges in the Articles of Impeachment!

    There is no issue whether he will correct his SALN now or not. Well and good if he file the correct SALN this year, include all his assets, peso deposits, dollar deposits and pay back taxes from the last 10 years including penalties. However, as good as his intention to disclose the correct SALN, the question is, will this correct filing and tax adjustments merit an acquittal of an offense committed for so many years? Will this correction be sufficient to acquit him? And lastly, will this correction of his SALN bring back the trust rating of the CJ and the SC from the people they serve? Will he be fit to run the SC after declaring a corrected SALN?
          If yes, then it all succeeding cases on misdeclaring SALN by Government officials will render an automatic acquittal by just correcting their SALN and remain in their position after.

    Mga inutil na abogado ni Corona. Paano ma-co-correct ang SALN ginawa noon pang 2002?

    The real question is, what will happen if the corrupt Senator Judges, such as Arroyo, Revilla, Villar, Santiago, Lagarda, Honosan, Marcos, and others (Enrile), acquits the vile pig faced Corona? Will the People just sit there and accept this cancer in their stomach, or will there be enough protests to override the decisions of the corrupt?

Pero elib ako talaga sa mga Cuevas and Co. na mga abogagos. Magaling idiretso ang baluktot at baluktutin ang diretso. Tagisang ng kasinungalingan tungo sa katotohanan. Tagapagtanggol ako ng hustisya. Sasaguting ko punto por punto ang mga articles of impeachment. lalabanan ko sila hanggang kamatayang ng aking mga dangal, puri’t katauhang. Teka teka! Mayroon pa ba ako ng mga iyung. Bahala na si Cuevas para sa mga judicial review petition sa SC. What are we in power for! Hanggang makakalusot eh di magpalusot.

  • F_U_FedUp

    How stupid is the defense team. They have openly admitted that they are afraid of the truth, so much so that they have no idea as to how to now tell the truth in what is expected in Corona’s SALN to be filed on April 30. They know this because they fear the scrutiny that will follow.

    I feel sorry for Corona’s accountant who must by ethical standards ensure that the SALN is documentarily correct, particularly as to income earned, allowances paid, liabilities incurred and the assets (all assets) referencing at least their acquisition cost and bank accounts in whatever currency held. Anything less would render the accountant to potential disbarment as a CPA. If he is a clever accountant (perhaps with a batch of competent defense lawyers) he may get away with it.

    A SALN can be corrected without punishment if the errors were as a result of an honest mistake. We ordinary mortals are not permitted to claim ignorance of the law as an excuse in making an error; the standard applied to a lawyer is even harsher as they are supposed to have knowledge of the law. This is the defense team’s dilemma. Were the errors as a result of an honest mistake(s); and were the mistakes/omissions something a lawyer should not make?

    As I have stated in a previous article regarding the impeachment, the only evidence that is necessary is that of Corona himself appearing and stating the irrefutable truth. His lawyers are only mudding the truth in order to have him acquitted. The defense has forgotten that his character is on trial more so than any other issue presented. How is he perceived by the public ….very poorly …. because he is hiding the truth which will convict him.

  • indiosbravos2002

    Ok lang iammend SALN ni corona basta ba ideclare nya dollar account nya para mag-kaalamanan na!

  • Garote

    Ang yabang naman ang defense lawyers “brainstorming on CJ’s acquittal”? Don’t make me laugh. These defense lawyers are not real trial lawyers. They are “chamber-practitioners or case fixers.” That the prosecutors’ evidences are strong  to show  Corona is unfit to stay as CJ is undeniable. That these evidences are public documents and cannot be refuted is also undeniable. Finally, that the impeachment is a political trial and the only issue is Corona’s fitness is equally undeniable. Because of this, the defense lawyers are throwing all complicated legal technicalities to muddle the simple issue of fitness, and hope they might get an acquittal. This muddling of issue is not without a little help from their friends — Enrile, Honosan, Santiago, Escuedero and Marcos. Even with these technicalities and help, they cannot acquit Corona that easily because the people are watching and the next election is next year. Corona has 2 choices left — either he resigns or do an Angelo Reyes.

    The word is “resign”, give up the post and this public humiliation will end, then Corona will just have to prove his innocence if indeed he is (i doubt), once the other cases of graft, tax evasion, etc.. will be filed against him. spare the nation of more lies and betrayal the way his defense lawyers are shaping up.

    Corona lawyers are indeed in dilemma on how to make the lies appear as the truth.

    Shameless, dishonest, bully, and dishonorable corona was already convicted by 47% of 
    the filipino people. Only 3% favored his acquittal.

    Ordinary people sees the truth better than those powerhouse lawyers who can only see 
    the pesos sign paid to them by their very rich client. 

    Impeachment trial is about knowing and telling the truth; not how brilliant the 
    lawyers are in distorting or covering up the truth from coming out.

  • oracle888

    Corona does not dare to amend his SALN because how can he include the huge dollar account?

  • oracle888

    Corona defense team spokeperson Salvador said there are two schools of thought on amending SALNs. One is that every filing of SALN is considered separate, and hence, it can no longer be amended. The other is that every filing is a continuation of the previous ones, hence, it can still be “cured.”

    So if SALN can be “cured”, then what’s the point for being honest in submitting the “true” SALN. This will only encourage dishonest government officials such as CJ Corona to falsified his SALN, and try to amend it when caught red handed.

    I don’t believe the original purpose of SALN allows it to be amended even after 10 years when found purposely falsified.

    Cuevas and Salvador surely do have crazy school of thinking. Do they think SALN as cured ham?

    Another defense counsel, Ramon Esguerra, said Corona still “has to meet his accountant” this weekend to discuss the matter.
    translation: mag-uusap pa raw sila kung pano dodoktorin ang SALN.

    Salvador admitted that the matter “would require deep thinking on our part and on the part of the Chief Justice.” 

    translation: nauubusan na ng palusot si Corona. kailangan ng maghukay sa baul ng mga bagong palusot.

    “If we feel that we have enough evidence to rebut [prosecution evidence] without presenting the Corona couple, that is an achievement for the defense team,” Quicho said.

    translation: even us lawyers know our clients are lying. putting them to the stand knowing deliberately they are lying (perjuring themselves) would put our licenses in danger if ever we lose this case. so ofc, we would never put the Coronas to the stand.

    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). 

    Corona lied about academic honors?

    http://wwwdotrapplerdotcom/newsbreak/652-updated-what-we-asked-ust-about-corona-s-thesis 

    just change the dot…

    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.

    College Degree without honors. Masters Degree without thesis. Doctoral degree without dissertation. SALN without acquisition cost.

  • jgl414567

    Corona was dishonest in the filing of his SALN that is why there was an impeachment had he been honest there won’t be any problem and no impeachment in the first place!! An acceptance of a midnight appointment is in itself the height of dishonesty on Corona’s part because the constitution prohibits it but instead he accepted it and had the constitution interpreted by the SC to favor him!!

  • noypisiTED

    Now, why were Corona lawyers in a “dilemma” over the SALN he will file
    on or before April 30, 2012? Is it because Corona’s earlier SALNs were
    erroneous? Why were ordinary government workers like us do not feel any
    sense of panic or anxiety with the SALNs we had or still to be filed? I
    know – it’s because we never cheated or hidden anything in our SALNs

    Corona and his defense are in a no-win situation; the result of all the lies. If he files the same numbers for his 2012 SALN, then he remains status quo, as far as his position is concerned; that is until those undeclared bank accounts will be revealed, and other unknown assets still to be made known are opened, then he will be accused of under reporting and lying under oath, again.

    Now if he declares the “correct” assets for 2012, he will be met with, “See, he has been concealing assets and lied about his previous SALNs.”

    And that is the true dilemma of the defense team. How to lie yet again……

    CJ Corona and Mrs. Corona are the only persons we want to explain their suspicious Bank accounts and proprties perceived as Ill Gotten Wealths. Not Cuevas or Eva or the other clown lawyers of Corona.

    “Reporter asks – Why did you take up Management Engineering?
    Corona: I was interested in engineering. I’ve always 
    been good in math. Even now….” Kaya pala ang galing rumetoke ng SALN! HEHEHE!

  • Hurtlocker1

    ummmmmmmmmmmmm…..
    nasaan na kaya ung mga paid commenters dito? meron ba?
    sana mag comments sila dito.
    ayan! kc pati sila, tuliro rin paano i-correct ung SALN…waaahhhhh

  • aSwedishguy

    why face a dilemma? is there more then one way to fill in that SALN?

    If Corona do not know how to declare HOW can he rule SC cases on the same matter?

  • Mario_Garcia

    So let the truth be  buried till kingdom come.  I felt so sorry for the Chief Justice, he is supposed to be upholding the law and the truth, now his lawyers are having reservation on presenting the truth.

    This must be a real paid site for many of the coolies of SIMEON & CARPIO as seen from their [paid bloggers] blind talks about Corona’s accounts. Now, SERENO is out of this picture because she is CONVINCED that she is not the choice of her AMO to be next CJ. She already started with LUCY TORRES’ case in an effort to take her revenge on SIMEON. NICE IMPROVEMENT.

    Regarding Corona’s NEW SALN [yet to be filed], my humble opinion is that it could be now filed either in the same old manner in accordance with RA 3019 which requires declaration of assets for purposes of taxes [which only seeks assessed values]. 

    If ever the DEFENSE is contemplating on filing SALN  TO SUIT THE EXPECTATION OF JPE AND THE IC MEMBERS, under RA 6713 & CSC SALN FORM,  which is declaration under oath of the ACQUISITION COST OF THE PROPERTIES, it will still be okay. There is no admission of guilt here, even granting that this is the first time Corona’s SALN is filed under this requirement.  VOLUNTARY CORRECTION SHOULD RENDER THE ISSUE MOOT AND ACADEMIC..  ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THE DISCREPANCY BETWEEN RA 3019 AND RA 6713.  But I think that requirement of declaring acquisition cost of properties is senseless as there would be no such value in case of DONATIONS/INHERITANCE. Does it mean, we should also only donate or not accept any consideration in case of alienation of the properties?

    CERTAINLY, VOLUNTARY EFFORTS TO MEND ERRORS CAN’T BE TAKEN AS ADMISSION OF GUILT OR GROUND FOR CONVICTION.  

    The IC won’t give opportunity to the defense to correct any error, as JPE himself has declared “how can we ask him to correct his SALN Forms, because this is an impeachment case,not just any ordinary case?”   But if Corona corrects his errors voluntarily, the IC can’t refuse to admit it and render a ruling on it in favor of Corona because such correction is also done within the allowed period. It is a big opportunity for the defense to make such correction before any decision is rendered on that matter. SUERTE NGA TAYO.. WE HAVE UNTIL APRIL 30 TO FILE NEW SALN, AND THE IC WILL RESUME ONLY ON MAY 6, 2012.

    SO, JUSTICE CUEVAS & ATTY. TRANQUIL, and others, FILE THE NEW SALN AS PER IC’S EXPECTATION..  So that JPE  will immediately DISMISS ARTICLE 2 OF  THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT [FOR THE ISSUE HAVING BEEN RENDERED MOOT AND ACADEMIC BY THE VOLUNTARY CORRECTION OF THE DEFENSE].

      Yes the law allows corrections of SALN… BUT… the question that will be in the minds of the people is if he corrects the values in the new SALN (which would include his $ accounts this time) is that he’s been filing and taking an oath on the wrong SALN values since 2002? 

      Yes. There’s no problem correcting errors but 10 years? o.o Took him 10 years and an impeachment case to correct it? This is the “Chief” Justice we’re talking about – not someone who does not know the law or requirements.

      Heck! As a citizen I’m expected to follow requirements from government especially when filling different documents – now the CJ can simply say “oh, it’s just an ‘honest’ mistake for 10 years… I thought I was not required to do it… everyone was doing it… etc… etc…”. I assume he knows by heart what was the reason for the SALN… what the heart of the law means when government officials should be filling their SALN under oath… I assume that he knows all of this since he’s Chief Justice… especially when faced with items stated and expected of government officials as placed in the constitution.

      Sorry medyo naiinis lang ako kasi sana mga nasa gobyerno (at mga nagbabalak) ay seryosohin ang binigay tiwala sa kanila ng bayan… at hindi magtago sa mga technicalities nalang lagi. Hindi naman mga bata eto at alam naman ng mga eto ang tama at mali.

      • JasminCubacub

        People will never be satisfied with the explanation of any politician for his actions. For more than the past 10 years, Corona filed his SALN as per RA 3019. No one can deny this. BUT NOW CORONA WILL FILE HIS SALN IN ACCORDANCE WITH RA 6713.That’s all. However, people will only wonder why only now he has to comply with RA 6713. They can’t give consideration to the fact that he had been previously filing his SALNs under RA 3019  BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE GENERALLY MALICIOUS IN THINKING.. IT IS THE ANIMAL NATURE WHICH IS BASIC OF MANKIND. Because we are basically animals. 

      • parekoy

        So basically, its also the malicious, animal instinct of CORONA that caused him to to continously file an erroneous but can be corrected SALN under RA 3019..Humans were created in the image and likeness of GOD..They  have a conscience  that tells them what is right and wrong..and CORONA has a better understanding of the law and to say  he has committed wrong entries to his SALN unintentionally is an insult to people who understands basic human nature..the intention was clear as the sun…he is not an honest person and does not deserve to remain as the CJ of the SC…Many are  clamoring  for a better replacement…

      • JasminCubacub

        It is animal nature of a public official to comply with RA 3019? TRY TO SAY THIS TO OMBUDSMAN MORALES OR EVEN THE SENATE!! 

        We are aware that many, Simeon, Carpio, Sereno, Roxas are aspiring to remove Corona.. I AM NOT BLIND TO SUCH FACT. 

  • JasminCubacub

    I  honestly feel that the Senator-Judges will appreciate the VOLUNTARY CORRECTION OF SALN BY CORONA. It is not an admission of guilt..  kasi COMMON SENSE yan sa COURT PROCEEDINGS the difference between correcting actions before and after DECISION is rendered. THE LAW ITSELF ALLOWS CORRECTION OF ERRORS IN FILING SALNs. The IC won’t ask or ORDER  correction, but it will ALLOW  voluntary correction. GOOD LUCK TO THE DEFENSE AND THANKS TO JPE & IC!    

  • cliff_castillo

    Two dilemmas of Corona: whether to amend his SALN and whether to testify.  That’s because it is difficult to hide the truth.  As CJ, the more it is important for him to be truthful but unfortunately he cannot be truthful without revealing all his crimes.

    Oh! I’m sorry… is this still on?
