Did Corona report it in his SALN?


Malacañang on Saturday mocked Chief Justice Renato Corona’s lawyers claim that they have “cracked the code” in Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales’ testimony on the impeached magistrate’s alleged $12 million in 82 dollar accounts.

“They didn’t have to crack the code. All they needed to do was ask their client if he had dollar deposits,” deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said over government radio station dzRB.

Defense lawyers on Friday that they were confident Corona would be acquitted after the trial. They said that out of the 82 accounts Morales testified to, only three or four actually exist and they don’t necessarily belong to the Chief Justice.

“It doesn’t matter whether there’s three, whether there’s four, whether there’s 82. What matters is what’s in them. How much is the amount that is in those [bank accounts],” Valte said.

“These are simple questions that must be answered. First, is it true that there are dollar deposits? Second, if it’s true, how much do they contain? Third, if there are indeed deposits, were these declared in his SALN (statement of assets, liabilities and net worth)?” she added.

Quezon Rep. Lorenzo Tañada III, a spokesperson for the prosecution panel, also said the number of accounts and how much was in them didn’t matter. What matters is whether Corona declared those accounts or not.

For Sen. Franklin Drilon, that is the issue. “Whether or not there are eight or 82 accounts, or $12 million or $1.2 million, is immaterial to me,” Drilon said by phone. “What is material to me is whether these amounts were reported in the SALN.”

Corona is scheduled to testify on Tuesday. With reports from TJ Burgonio and Leila B. Salaverria

    This is my position – The mandate of the office of the OMB, coupled with the waiver on the
    SALN are enough to satisfy the “written permission of the depositor”
    clause stated on the FCDA. Besides, no one can argue the OMB has too
    much powers since the OMB’s mandate only covers government
    employees/officials NOT private citizens. Sen. Miriam Santiago, there
    lies the flaw on your argument. Yes, the OMB has powers over you but
    not over me. The power is not unlimited, though vast. So who should be afraid of the OMB doing his/her job? Certainly, not ordinary citizens like me. Corrupt government officials, MOST DEFINITELY!

  • quirinomayer

    The line of defense of Corona is to drastically cut down the number of accounts as compared to the 82 cited by the Ombudsman. But then that would not get their client off the hook because he has not declared the reduced number of accounts in his SALN either. So this futile and foolish exercise on their part is just like the Ampatuans admitting they only slaughtered three to four of their 50 plus victims.

    All those who think that there simply is no way Corona can explain his dollar hoard Like this comment.

  • joshmale2004

    Lest we forget and start assuming conviction for the CJ, the fact is that the USD10m testified by the Ombudsman is a transactional balance which is very different in what we call in accounting as year End Balance. The transactional balance will hold true and will have a very significant importance for the Ombudsman, as she is investigating a complaint on ill-gotten. The Who and How will have to be explained on every dollar transaction in case of Ill Gotten Wealth cases. However, in this impeachment, the issue is whether the CJ includes his dollar deposits every year. In this case, what matters is the ending balance or year end balance figures of his deposits. The transactional balances he made before Dec 31 of every year will not matter if at the end of the year, the account balance is reduced to zero or have been closed.
       The prosecution should be aware of this and must be alert at all times in case the defense will eventually open the Thief Justice’s year end balances with no substantial amounts. Further, they should not rely solely on Article 2for conviction. They should also prepare well to Cross Examine the TJ on the Betrayal of Public Trust in case the TJ can defend will the article 2. They should keep in mind that if the TJ is acquitted, then even the case being built up by the Ombudsman on the Ill gotten wealth complaints will also go down the drain and perhaps will have to wait again another year to initiate an impeachment.

  • johndcross1

    Iyan ang tama.  Kung tutuo na may dollar account si Corona at saka magkano, ang tanong ay kung ito ay sinama niya sa kanyang SALN o hindi.  Hindi na kailangan kung isa o dalawa o 82 accounts.  Ang importante kung idiniklara niya sa kanyang SALN. Dito nating malaman kung siya ay honest or dishonest.  Kung dishonest din guilty siya sa BETRYAL OF PUBLIC TRUST!  Tapos ang boksing!!!

    Ano bang ending ending balance ang mga pinagsasabi ng mga aso ni Thief Justice Corona.  Kahit na ba ang ending balance ay zero, kung ang ipinasok na pera sa taon na 2004 ay sampung milyon, at ang inilabas ng taon rin iyon ay zero, ang kuwestiyon ay kung saan galing ang pera ipinasok.  Galing ba sa pagbebenta niya ng kaso sa Supreme Court?

        For clarity
        The omb is doing investigative work… analyzing available data for further verification..omb is not a bank  task to maintain subsidiary records for bank transactions.
        Given the amla report..forensic financial analysis was done… result,,, for further verification.
        Ok…705 (?) line transactions for the 82 (?) accounts opened and closed period 2004 to 2011.
        A transaction reported by the financial institution to AMLAC represents either a deposit/placement or a withdrawal/transfer for an amount more than 500,000 pesos covered account unless these are suspicious accounts which are also reported by the bank to amla  within 5 working days. these were the red flags.
        To RECONSTRUCT  the aggregate transactional balance, assume all 705 line transactions as transactions for a single “mother account”. Using the T-account, a tool of the accountants in determining account balances, post/place all deposits reported by AMLA (additions/inflows) in the left side of the T-account; also post/place all withdrawals (deductions/outflows) in the right side of the T-account. Add all entries in the left side and also those in the right. Get the difference (net) or the transactional balance. This procedure will not give you the beginning and ending balance of the account as it can only be determined by the banks and not by amla or the ombudsman.
        Ok..2 million net outlows (28 million inflows and 30 million transactional outflows. The deficit 2 million represent deductions from existing beginning balances of dollar accounts as of 2003. So there are dollar accounts since then.
        Within the 705 line transactions, there may be a time deposit that was opened and closed within a time frame, but for purposes of reporting this is considered an account (with zero balance). However, there may be a time/savings deposit that was opened and remained outstanding as of 2010… I believe these were what was termed as fresh deposits by the OMB and there were 12 of them aggregating 10 milion dollars. … as conclusive analysis that there were no more movements from the time of the opening up to the present.
        Ok… according to the defense .. Possible remaining active accounts ( accounts closed not considered)  may be only 3 or 4.
        If given all the leeway to get (audit) the bank records and determine the actual number of accounts and their individual outstanding  balances as of a given year, the aggregate amount in question may be more than 10 milion dollars.
        Individual balances for each account could not be determined from the AMLC records as it is the responsibility of the official to report the same in the SALN for the period 2003 to 2011… unless he has a different theory.
        Defense argument that you get the individual balances from the bank is a trap  for they will invoke the confidentiality of bank accounts… its like there is air.. your breathe air.. but you are not in the position to see the air…
        The fact remains that there are dollar transactions during the period 2003 to 2011…Even claiming that there are only 3 or 4 active accounts.. it should be reported according to the prosecution… THIS IS THE BONE OF CONTENTION.
        Extra…What is the basis of 1 billion asset declared by pacquaio in his saln… considering that pacquaio is earning dollars. Mas alam pa ng isang boksingero magfill-up ng SALN ke sa CHIEF JUSTICE?
        .how about income of resident filipinos  from outside sources…hindi na ba kailangan I edeclare ito kasi confidential???…Whaa.. magait ang bir dito.. baka maraming tax evasion cases ang resulta nito

  • albuster

    It may be that Corona was able to unload most of his dollar accounts before he became a CJ so that the defense can claim that the dollar accounts and large transactions happened before he was a CJ thus he cannot be liable for non disclosure of his dollar assets while sitting as a CJ. Maybe the timeline is the “code” that Salvador mentioned.
    Still, OMB Morales said that there is a “fresh” amount of dollars currently sitting in Corona’s accounts.
    Regadless, even without the Morales bombshell, Corona has to explain his undervalued assets and his dubious “sale” of his other properties, his 36million in two banks and their admitted existing dollar accounts which was confirmed by the PSBank president.
    If the senators are true to their duty to the country, which I do not really expect, and find their conscience, at least for this trial, then there is no way Corona can truthfully get away with his guilt.

    All these waste of time and efforts could have been avoided if only the senate impeachment court has not subordinated itself to the SC. If the senator-judges just voted for the opening of Corona’s dollar accounts then all these “codes”, “lantern of lies” and what have you would be all moot and academic by now.

    If TJ Corona would still insist at the stand that the 3, 5 or 82 dollar accounts are not his, then the senate impeachment court should assert its constitutional mandate and order the banks to open those accounts once and for all.

    Goodluck na lang sa future ng Pilipinas.

    >>> Gng Valte at Senador Drilon… tama po kayo hindi mahalaga kung 3 o 82, ang mahalaga ay ano ang naroon. KAYA DAPAT KAYO ANG MAGBIGAY NG EBIDENSIYA NA MAY ACCOUNT SI CJ AT SAAN AT PAANO NAKUHA NINYO ITO DAHIL MAY BATAS SA $ ACCOUNT.
    >>> ayon din sa mga nakaalam, ang dollar account ay no place in SALN dahil na rin sa mahigpit na pinag-uutos sa RA6426.  AT ANUMAN DOLLAR TRANSACTION AY HINDI DINIDEKLARA SA SALN.
    >>> ayon din sa nakakaalam , ang dollar account ay hindi pwede idekalra bilang asset sa SALN dahil this will not affect his /or her net worth (HINDI NETWORK).  At ang increaase nman sa NETWORTH ay taxable under Section 24 of the Tax Code, kasi net worth comprises such acquisition sa PESO LANG.

      sir, maari bang sabihing hindi pera ang dollars at sinsabi natin na hind assets ang mga ito? ano ngayon ang puwedeng itawag dito ? ano nga po pala ang tawag sa tagalog ng assets ?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_AR3F3RNQX4U3PKBI526NJI6BYM Jose

        Pwede bang tawaging hidden wealth?  Di daw kasi kasali sa impeachment yung hidden wealth, he he he.  Pero teka pag wealth eh di ba asset yun? english na parehas yan.  Magulo itong mga tinamaan ng lintik na depensa, paikot ikot lang ang usapan. 

      • deadlyshooter

        assets ay pag aari o ariarian…ganyan ang lawyer…pinabaril ang batas hanggang mabutas….

      kadugong Eltee, mawalang galang na po…. payag ka ba na halimbawa may pera na pesos c corona (hindi natin alam kung saan nanggaling) at itoy ipinalit niya sa dollar dahil alam niya ang RA5425 pdi mabuksan kung maimpitz siya ay di na nasabing kayamanan niya o pera niya …? 

      pakisagut nga lang po….!  salamat.

    • tcbernardo

      – Hay, naku … matagal nang inamin ng presidente ng PSBank na may dollar account sa kanila itong si Coronarroyo, kanya nga lang tumakbo sa Supreme Court ang PSBank para h’wag silang i-obliga na buksan ang sinasabing dollar account.
        — Saan ba sa RA6426 nakasaad na ang “dollar account ay no place in SALN” dahil ito’y “mahigpit na pinag-uutos”?

      — Sino ba yang sinasabi mong “nakakaalam”  na nagsabing “ang dollar account  ay hindi pwede idekalra (sic) bilang asset sa SALN dahil this will not affect his/or her net worth”? Siempre, pag hindi dinaklara, di walang epecto sa net worth. Pag dineklara (converted to pesos), kasama na yan sa asset (minus liabilities, net worth na). Wala naman yatang alam yang sinasabi mong “nakakaalam.” 


    • fojar

      I am a Government employee and we are mandated by law to declare truthfully our SALN and we don’t make any distinction whether it is peso or dollar account because we are talking here of assets. It’s just sad that some people make a twisted interpretation of the law just to suit their whims.

    kunwari po xe ung impeachment court hinayaang mg accept ng ebidensya base sa haka haka, xerox, small lady, kahit hindi tau atty, alam naten dapat original na papel ang ipakita, hindi ipasubpoena para madala ang original, ung sa saln po, nabanggit na laht ni eltee and i definitely agree, ngbabasa nman lahat tau, mas plausible ung rason ng retired bir kaysa kina atty valte, sen. drilon, sabi nga nya, sino ba ang high official ang ngdeclara ng dollar account sa saln? THE IMPEACHMENT court allowed itself to be insulted by parties who submitted evidence that as they say napupulot sa basura, wala nga sa complaint pinag uusapan pa, pano po ung RULES nyo?

    • deadlyshooter

      hijo, kung hindi assets ang tawag doon sa mga ariarian na mga dolyares, puwede bang sabihing tagong yaman ang mga ito ?

    ilang oras na lang at makita natin ang paglakad, pag-upo at pagsumpa ni cj sa trial niya.

    ilang oras na lang at maipakita na niya ang prinaktis niyang pagngiti-pagmamakaawa at parang galit na galit dahil inosente sa mga paratang sa kanya….!

    ilang oras na lang at magamit na niya ang abilidad niyang sasagot sa mga tanong kung dapat pa bang manatili sa puesto niya bilang tj, est cj….!  ang tanong kung totoong kanya ang mga dollar accounts na sinasabi ni madam ombudsman……!  ang tanong kung may tatatlo lang naman na $ acnts ay saang galing….!

    ang tanong na bakit mayroon pala siyang mga ari-arian na kahit lilima lang ay hindi lahat nailagay sa SALN niya…..!

    at iba pang mga tanong galing kay jinggoy, kay manong johnie, kay drillon, kay escudero, at pag may time pa ay marami pang tanong sa kanya…..!

    at baka sa mierkoles at huwebes pa babalik para masagot niya lahat ang maraming tanong….!

    How long will they end their constant beating of the CJ? This only shows that all the prosecution, Morales etc., all their allegations against the CJ is just nothing but only a bait. Lawmakers are the one who made the law and now they want to break the law. If they wanted the CJ or anybody else to open the $ accounts they they should first repeal or amend that RA6426 law. This is the problem of the prosecutors, before they thought their evidence is strong, now that they feel the CJ can disprove all those allegations they want Corona to sign a waiver and open the $ account? If the CJ or his defense can disprove all these allegations then this case should put into rest, or case closed so that we can move on. Just follow the legal process and from that time if they think this law is grossly disadvantageous then they should repeal, scrap or amend that RA 6426.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/JS3RT4LED3KK6XU4FEK3E7CIQY kupal-ka!

      simpleng tanong sayo, kung walang tinatago si Corona bakit hindi sya mag sign ng waiver para mabuksan yung mga binibintang na dollar account sa kanya? kung hindi talaga ito sa kanya di madali nyang maidedepensa. kagaya ka ng mga lawyer ni Corona, ang palusot ay puro technicality ng batas.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IE6OU4ODQIVS6F5HKL6QPTTDNI RonnieV

        Simpling sagot kung ganun pala ang gusto nyo bakit idinaan pa sa ibat ibang mga alegasyong walang katutuhanan at walang ebedinsya, pinapahiya ang tao, ang daming batas pang tao ang hindi sinunud, e dapat noon pa lang bago mag fiel ng impeachment ay ini repeal na nila yung batas RA 6426 at sa ganun pwedi na nilang kasuhan si Corona, kayang gawin ng mga congress yan. Ngayon may complaints sila pero pakiramdam kasi nila na makakalusot si Corona dahil nga gawa gawa lang kasi ang mga charges gusto na naman nilang pa buksan ang accounts ni Corona. Akala ko ba malakas at matibay ang ebdensya nila?

      • parekoy

        Sino ba nagpapahiya sa idol mo?Siya rin mismo nagpapahiya sa sarili nya dahil sa mga lumabas na baho niya pero hindi maamoy ng mga kagaya mo..dapat hindi na humaba ang proceedings sa IC kung sa simula pa lang binuksan na lahat ng dapat buksan pati $ACCOUNTS niya. Ang taong walang itinatago, kahit kalkalin mo ang lahat sa buhay niya, walang sisingaw na baho..kaso dahil sa dami ng mga itinago, talagang magpapakamatay sa pagtatago para hindi mabisto…THE TRUTH IS NOT DIFFICULT TO EXPLAIN..YOU CAN LIE ALL YOU WANT, BUT THE TRUTH WILL ALWAYS FIND ITS WAY TO COME OUT AND EXPOSE YOU…ITS BIBLICAL, YOUR SINS WILL FIND YOU OUT..Let’s wait and witness how your idol will speak lies and hide under the technicalities of the law..CORONA never speaks any truth.BE IT HIS SALN, BANK ACCOUNTS, HIS ACADEMIC RECORDS, HIS APPOINTMENT ETC…it’s his way of life.HE THRIVES in darkness and like to keep things in secret…there is no truth in him..Wala sa lakas ng ebidensya ang kaso ng idol mo..ANG PAGKATAO NIYA NA SIYA MISMO ANG SUMIRA SA TULONG NG ANAK AT ASAWA NIYA MISMO..

      • la mona segrestat

        oo nga kuya.. public official sya so dapat willing syang ipakita sa mga tao ung mga assets nya, peso or dollar.. 

        saka isa pa, judge sya, so dapat fair ung mga transactions nya.. bakit sa dami ng mga issues na lumabas during the impeachment trial, why did i have the impression na ang dami nyang dinayang tao.. regardless kung anak or asawa nya ung sinasabi nilang nagmamay-ari nung mga assets na namention during the hearing.. ang daming nabaluktot, nakalimutan, etc.. daming excuses..

        chief justice pa naman sya, dapat he should be the most fair person in the philippines.. kaso, sa lagay na to, nakakatakot na magtiwala sa justice system ng pinas.

    • tcbernardo

      The provision is very, very clear: the owner of the account CAN consent in writing to the opening of his account. What law is being broken there? By the way, if you have to argue in English, better hire an editor who can straighten your grammar. Okay?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/JS3RT4LED3KK6XU4FEK3E7CIQY kupal-ka!

    Sa mga pro-Corona, isang tanong lang sa inyo. Bakit hindi pabuksan ni CJ yung dollar account nya kung wala syang tinatago? at bakit hindi nya nilagay sa SALN yun? Kung ano ano ang mga palusot pero yang simpleng tanong na yan hind nyo masagot. Kung walang tinatago, mag sign sya ng waiver para mabuksan. Ganun ka-simple.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IE6OU4ODQIVS6F5HKL6QPTTDNI RonnieV

      Hindi ako pro Corona, ako ay para sa batas na kailangang sundin at hindi ina abuso. Maghintay ka nalang sa Martes at doon mo masasagot ang hinihingi mo kupal.

        Alam mo ba kung ano ang kupal,? Kung hindi, iyon ay yung maputing accumulated buggar like sa loob ng uncircumscised ari na napakabaho. Kung hindi ka pa tuli huwag mong ipagmalaki dahil may kupal ka rin.

    Just open your bank accounts by issuing a waver. It’s that simple. Or is it difficult because you have something to hide? 

  • Rigoberto_Tigdas

    After all these revelations, including the ones from the defense’ witness themselves. On how the Coronas robbed their relatives in broad daylight. Stolen money from the dead. At the end of the day, the Senators just need to ask themselves this…

    Is Corona still deserving to be the Chief Magistrate of my Country?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ESOLZFVKAWYGCVFPVUANFVV4W4 Efren

    Corona, his defense team and his loyal fans have been drumbeating the following lines of defense :  “Hindi totoo ang 82 accounts” ;  “Hindi totoo ang “$12M” ; “Hindi totoo ang 45 properties” ;  ” Si Carla ang may-ari ng BGEI ” !

    Mental Dishonesty !  Evading the Issues !  Palusot !

    Did Corona report “it” in his SALN?

    I am confused with the question “Did Corona report it”
    What is the ” it ” being talked about.
    The it, it is really confusing.
    Don’t make us guess on the it…possibly like it bulaga.

  • anu12345

     For Sen. Franklin Drilon, that is the issue. “Whether or not there are
    eight or 82 accounts, or $12 million or $1.2 million, is immaterial to
    me,” Drilon said by phone. “What is material to me is whether these amounts were reported in the SALN.”

    At kung saan nanggaling. Kaya lang bad word sa IC ang “ill-gotten”

  • http://rltjs.wordpress.com/ Rod

    Everybody is talking about it. But as far as the court is concerned, the dollar accounts are good as non-existent yet. Hindi nga tiningnan ni Senator Enrile mga iyon na ikinalat ng “Civil Society group” because it smelled like poison fruit of a poisonous tree.

    • Rolly257

      Eh ano ang ibig sabihin ngTRO para huwag buksan ang dollar acoount ni Corona…bakit kailangan pa ng TRO.

  • http://rltjs.wordpress.com/ Rod

    Kung ibasura natin lahat na bagay at simpling politika na lang, I think Corona  to stay is best for the Filipino people. He is better than any probable replacement.

    Pareho lang yan sila lahat kung may hinahanap ka.
