Atienza was already presented by the defense team before the Senate, sitting as an impeachment court, in connection with the sale of a property in Manila owned by the family of Corona’s wife, Cristina.

Rivera’s name on the other hand was mentioned in the trial as the alleged owner of a property in Ayala, which is being linked to the Coronas.

Esguerra said Kintanar will testify in connection of another property in Taguig City while he identified Castro as Manila market administrator and Cadangen as the law division chief of the Bureau of Internal Revenue.
