Walkout sealed Corona’s fate, says Sen. Estrada



Senate President Pro Tempore Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada

Would Chief Justice Renato Corona’s returning to the Senate impeachment court Friday save him from a fate he had sealed for himself by walking out on the senators on Tuesday?

Senate President Pro Tempore Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada on Thursday said most of the 23 senators had already “made up their minds.”

“He virtually hanged himself with that walkout,” Estrada told the Philippine Daily Inquirer in a phone interview. “It’s practically suicide. Or he’s killing himself slowly.”

The defense panel insists Corona, a longtime diabetic, did not walk out on the senators, but left to seek medical attention for an attack of hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar.

But his sudden departure after making a statement in his own defense did not look like spurred by an emergency.

“The Chief Justice of the Philippines wishes to be excused,” he said, then stepped down from the witness stand, shook hands around, and headed for the door.

He failed to get out, however, as the impeachment court’s presiding officer, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, ordered a lockdown.

The Senate sergeant-at-arms, Jose Balajadia Jr., said he stopped Corona and his wife at the exit area.

“It made life easier for the senator-judges,” Estrada said, but stopped short of saying the court would hand down a unanimous verdict against Corona.

Another senator, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Corona’s behavior might have swayed “three or four” of his formerly “undecided” colleagues to vote for Corona’s conviction.

“He placed himself on the defensive when he disrespected the Senate,” the senator said.

Still, the defense is not losing hope. Tranquil Salvador III, one of Corona’s lawyers, said the Chief Justice would return to the impeachment court this afternoon despite being under intensive care at The Medical City in Pasig City as of Thursday.

“He will appear barring any more medical complications that might arise,” Salvador told the Inquirer.

“I believe we could still swing it given the right circumstances,” Salvador said. “Until the clock is ticking, you cannot really say it’s over.”

Until fat lady sings

Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III said the outcome of the trial remained unknown despite mixed reactions to Corona’s testimony on Tuesday.

“There may be some leanings (among senators) but for all you know, the closing arguments may be compelling,” Sotto said. “It’s not over till the fat lady sings.”

Corona offended most of the senators by leaving the trial without being properly dismissed.

Senator Gregorio Honasan said Corona should not have left the court nor imposed a condition on disclosing his bank deposits.

“Whether it’s in a normal court proceeding or the impeachment trial, I cannot imagine a situation where a witness imposes a condition on the judge and the prosecutors,” Honasan said in a separate interview.

Estrada said Corona had been doing fine until he suddenly left.

In a three-hour-long opening statement on Tuesday, Corona explained his finances, admitting he had four US dollar accounts, not 82 as claimed by Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales.

Morales had said Corona had $12 million in those foreign currency deposits, but Corona denied he had that much. He did not disclose, however, how much he kept in his four US dollar accounts.

He said he and his family had been investing in foreign exchange since the 1960s. At certain points during the trial, he looked senators and prosecutors straight in the eye and denied ever stealing from government coffers.

Substance of testimony

Salvador said the senators should “look into the substance of [Corona’s] testimony,” which was “lost amid all the high drama that was instead highlighted in media reports.”

“The case should not be decided based on the perceived disrespect of the impeachment court,” he said.

Senator Francis Pangilinan  played down the importance of Corona’s return to the impeachment court.

“Considering the prosecution has expressed willingness to waive cross-examining him and that no less than the Chief Justice himself has said that the defense can rest its case should there be no waiver on the part of the 189 members of Congress, then his appearance on Friday can actually be dispensed with,” Pangilinan said.

Senator Franklin Drilon, the 189th member of Congress dared by Corona to sign a waiver for the investigation of their bank accounts, said, “Even without Corona returning, the senators already have enough materials to render a decision.”

Senator Panfilo Lacson did not exactly agree with his two colleagues, who both belong to President Benigno Aquino III’s Liberal Party.

Full circle

“It is very crucial for CJ Corona to return [Friday] and subject himself to further direct [examination] and [to] cross-examination for the simple reason that a witness must go full circle in his testimony before any court of law,” Lacson said. “Otherwise, we will simply appreciate his opening statement at its face value and nothing more.”

Lacson said he would decide “after hearing the final arguments” of both the defense and the prosecution next Monday.

“That’s why during our caucus yesterday (Wednesday), I asked that we hand down the verdict on Tuesday, not Monday, to give us at least a day to weigh all the pieces of evidence even if capsulized in the final arguments,” he said.

How they will vote

The senators’ caucus decided to hold the vote next Monday night or Tuesday afternoon after the closing arguments of the defense and the prosecution.

The senators agreed to vote in alphabetical order, with Senator Edgardo Angara voting first and  Senator Manuel Villar voting second to the last. Being the presiding officer, Enrile will vote last.

The senators will vote first, then they will have two minutes to explain their votes. They can ask for an extension.

Unlike in the US jury system, the senators will not retire to deliberate before they vote.

Three articles

“Impeachment is different—it’s an individual decision, not a collective decision,” Sotto said. “There’s no need to argue with each other.”

When the House prosecution panel rested its case in late February, it only prosecuted Articles 2, 3 and 7 of the eight-article impeachment complaint transmitted to the Senate on Dec. 13, 2011.

The senators, then, will decide only on those three articles.

Once a guilty verdict is reached, there is no need to proceed with the voting on the other two articles.

“The penalty is removal,” Sotto said. “You can be removed only once.”

Sixteen votes are needed to convict; only eight are needed to acquit.

Truthfulness, moral fitness

When decision time comes, it will all boil down to whether Corona has been truthful in disclosing his finances.

Regardless of how the prosecutors and the defense close their cases, which a senator said would just be a summation of evidence, it may be over except for the vote.

In a text message, Senator Pangilinan said the issue would boil down to this: “The truthfulness of the entries in the sworn statement of assets, liabilities and net worth, as mandated by the Constitution, and his moral fitness to stay in office.”

Failure to report

Senator Drilon said the issue at Corona’s trial was his failure to report an asset. “A dollar account is an asset,” Drilon told reporters. “If you have a dollar account, you either report in foreign currency or in peso equivalent. But what is required is the reporting of the asset.”

Senator Sergio Osmeña III said senators had to come up with individual verdicts based on key issues. Osmeña said in a text message: “Has he betrayed public trust? Is he fit to be our highest [judicial] official? Has he conducted himself in a manner that has earned for his position, the high court and the entire judicial system, the admiration, respect and confidence of the Filipino people?”

How crucial is the issue of moral fitness?

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV said: “Moral fitness is a major issue because he has the power to deprive a person of freedom as a consequence of certain acts so justices/judges should be above every other ordinary citizen in that regard.”

Besides, he added, Corona was not an “elected official who gets to submit himself to public scrutiny and judgment every election.”

“I am ready [to vote]. To be swayed at this point by the closing arguments would be a very long shot,” Trillanes said.

Damaging testimony

Drilon said that should Corona fail to appear today and explain his accounts, he would conclude that at one point the chief magistrate had US dollars in 82 accounts, as reported by the Anti-Money Laundering Council to Ombudsman Morales.

The damaging testimony came from Corona himself and Morales, whom the defense presented as a hostile witness, Drilon said. With reports from Michael Lim Ubac and TJ Burgonio

      • wil15

        Why, is he not? Did he not steal the position of Chief Justice by accepting an obviously illegal appointment from an illegal president? Why is he unwilling to disclose his peso and dollar bank accounts, which he admitted if those monies were not stolen or came from illegal source? Threatening to use force can not and will not win arguments.

      • Wackawackawacka

        He didn’t respect his position or the Filipino people who entrusted him to embody the constitution.  Instead, he is a self-serving, biased disgrace to the nation.
        When your Chief Justice is corrupt, the country is corrupt in the worst possible way.

      He did not walked out? How can anybody even say that? It is on national TV, live pa naman. Now that the proceedings is almost done, is this all the defense can do? Lies, technicality, TRO, drama, and more lies?

    Senator Gregorio Honasan said Corona should not have left the court nor imposed a condition on disclosing his bank deposits.

    yes, right…this is challenging all there present who heard it…..they are all government men whom he accused of like him, having huge dollar bank deposits…thus a direct insult !!!

    • kolambogan

      Just asking, how can an alleged deceiver insult persons whom he believe is like himself? Unless, maybe he’s throwing the questions or implying to everyone, even the non-corrupt government officials are also deceivers like them, whom in my opnion will not be offended nor insulted cause they are never the same in the first place. No harm no foul. What Midnight Appointed CJ corona did was just dug his own grave in his non defense.  

      • deadlyshooter

        yes you’re right, he dug his own conviction…his desperation, having no arguments to substantiate his defense to proved his case, sold him out…thus, the easy way out, challenge them, having in mind, the jews, who  one by one departed away from the sinner…but, he failed, he already admitted, he sinned…

  • quirinomayer

    This is a classic case of “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18

    In a way, Renato Corona did an Angelo Reyes. Not with a .45 but with his arrogance.

  • nti_boohaya

    Yes, it’s not over until the fat lady sings but she is humming right now in the tune of “another one bites the dust.”  I can’t wait to hear the closing arguments.  Except Tupas, both panels have great orators.  My barbershop opinion sways towards conviction simply because Farinas will take the podium last.  History is on his side. He has won all the cases he represented, including his own. And the outcome of this case will be no different- IMHO, a win for the prosecution.   

  • Concur_Dissent

    Corona has another not-to-far-out exit strategy… once worse really comes to worst, corona’s supreme court with a vote of 8 to 6 will declare corona incapacitated to discharge the duties of his office for reasons of physical and mental instability , under section 11, article 8 of the constitution…. thereafter, corona will voluntarily resign claiming that he NO LONGER WANTS to divide the people any further, notwithstanding only 10% believes in his innocence…  

    Being declared incapacitated by reason of mental instability (an official depression diagnosis would suddenly be disclosed by the family) will effectively prevent the senate from convicting him given that he can not intellectually defend himself…. Corona will then have a golden parachute of enjoying his pension without a conviction ruled against him…. perhaps even run for a senate seat next year!!

    • http://jaoromero.com/ Jao Romero

      err, mental incapacity disqualifies you from running for office. also, if he can voluntarily resign, that will invalidate his claim of mental instability. since resignation requires the power of reason.

      also, a defense of insanity will not protect him from anything. if he resigns, that means the criminal cases against him will continue. conviction from this impeachment will have no effect in his pension since conviction in impeachment is merely removal from office. all his benefits would be intact. it is a criminal conviction that would remove those.

        depression is not permanent in nature… next year’s election is still quite a bit away… it would not take a miracle for someone to recover from depression…. the government would not have to establish anyones power of reasoning if they want to resign but the government has to establish that an accused is capable to fully discern charges and appreciate consequences of someone’s action….. I do agree though that the criminal aspect against corona will continue…but those 8 to 10 cohort-friends in the SC who were also appointed by GMA will still be handling his final appeal…   

      • http://jaoromero.com/ Jao Romero

        depression is different from mental incapacity. i hope you can appreciate that difference.

        naturally, the govt doesn’t need to establish sanity if Corona wants to resign. was that my point? my point was, resignation is a sign of sanity – since resignation requires the power of reason. is that hard to understand? so if Corona resigns, then that means he is not insane. get it? smh at ppl like you that need to have everything explained to them fully.

        as for those remaining justices on Corona’s side, many of them will change their stripes once Corona falls. or else they’ll suffer the same fate as Corona’s. look at Mereceditas Guttierez. hardly anyone ever remembers her impeachment and the criminal liability she still had. is anyone even actively pursuing her case? remember, her resignation never removed her culpability. yet she has been forgotten, and now lives a quiet life. those remaining in the SC would not be remiss to notice that difference. if they would like to avoid Corona’s fate, they’d follow Mercy’s way. otherwise, it is impeachment and criminal cases awaiting them.

      • Simplify1

        I wish to inform you that mental incapacity encompass a wide range of mental impairments including but not limited to psychotic illness,  emotional disturbance, dementia, acute confusion and yes….depression!

        I think it is you who need detailed explanations for everything… you still can’t get the point.  So let me explain… If corona is “certified depressed” he would not be able to perform his function as a judge, surely you wouldn’t want a depressed individual making decisions that may impact on peoples lives, right?  Similarly, he wouldn’t be able to fully defend himself in court, right? On the other hand, he can still very well resign and nobody can stop him.  A resignation is a resignation…it is a unilateral act and does not bind anyone to it except the executor and this is the reason why the test of sanity is not required.  get it??

        as for the remaining justices, only time will tell… ..

      • http://jaoromero.com/ Jao Romero

        ok, i concede depression can be classified as a mental impairment. however, his resignation, again would not be valid, because if his thinking is impaired, then how does that make his resignation not impaired?
        if a resignation does not bind anyone except the executor, then how does that free the organization from hiring a replacement if the resignation is only binding for the resignee? the individual can just go right back and claim he was illegally removed because his resignation should not have been valid because he was suffering depression when he signed it. and since you said it is not binding being a unilateral act, what protects the organization from suit?
        so to clarify, since resignation is unilateral, and since a judge with depression cannot make good decisions, he must be replaced because we don’t want him judging cases. so we must accept his resignation on his word that he is depressed. a test is not needed because a man with impaired thinking can judge for himself whether his thinking is impaired. the resignation is binding only for the resignee. what else? i miss anything?

      • Simplify1

        The unilateral act of resigning binds the executor to his desire (in this case, to be separated from the organization). The organization will naturally declare the position vacant and thus need replacement… The person who resigned is “estopped” from reclaiming his old position because he bound himself to his own separation regardless of his state of mind…

      • http://jaoromero.com/ Jao Romero

  • Godio

    Corona already sounded like he delivered his closing argument last Tuesday. But in case he testifies again, I hope the Senators will ask for the account balances of his dollars before they were drained. 

    I noted in his speech that his waiver would be “Specifically the Opening balance and Closing balance”. Hmmm very sneaky.

    “Has he betrayed public trust?” “Is he fit to be our highest [judicial] official?”
    ” Has he conducted himself in a manner that has earned for his position, the high court and the entire judicial system, the admiration, respect and confidence of the Filipino people?”-Sen Osmena

    I hope all the Senator-Judges will base their decision on the basis Sen Osmena laid for himself. These questions are very crucial, they correspond to the requirement for a justice as written in the Constitution article 8, sec 7, par 8-of proven competence, integrity, probity and independence.

    “Has he betrayed public trust?” 
    Yes,definitely, no question or doubt about that. The whole nation knew that.

     “Is he fit to be our highest [judicial] official?” 
    Never! From the day he accepted his midnight appointment!

     “Has he conducted himself in a manner…?” 
    Absolutely not! That is undeniable! With the manner he carries himself, with his display of sheer arrogance not only last Tuesday but from the day he was impeached.

  • JosephNess

    what transpired last tuesday, has a great impact to this case…it showed his other hidden character which is one of the requirement for a chief justice… as sen. osmena mentioned, ”…
    Has he conducted himself in a manner that has earned for his position, the high court and the entire judicial system, the admiration, respect and confidence of the Filipino people?”…this alone can ruin all his defense…

    • Simplify1

      the reality is that he did not earn his position…it was merely illegally rewarded to him by an equally illegally elected and disgraced GMA…. in effect, he did not lose any respect and confidence from the people because there was none to begin with.  The people did not admire, respect nor had confidence in a midnight appointee…  

      • JosephNess

        meaning…with respect to the supreme court…he did not exist…just, non-existent…a ghost !!!

  • Simplify1

    I believe that the walk out was just the icing on the cake of corona’s conviction… I’m sure many undecided senators were convinced on corona’s guilt after corona declared a conditional waiver for disclosing his dollar accounts… corona was effectively saying in open court that “he is merely hiding from public knowledge his unreported dollar accounts that he knows is also being done by other politicians”….  such audacity by the guilty!! 

  • juantamadnatamad

    If the Impeachment Court would like to show the people that they are not biased for or against anybody, they should find the chief justice for contempt for walking out of the court. His doctors can attend to him now but once the doctors release him he should serve time in jail.

    To save a tree sometimes it’s necessary to cut a rotting branch.

    To restore the integrity of Supreme Court, Corona must go.
    And he can bring his lapdog Midaz Marquez with him.


    To be fair to everybody, I think what the chief justice would like to tell the prosecutors and the senator-judges is that they are all similarly situated. They all enriched themselves while in public office. Although, he categorically said that he is not guilty, he acknowledged that he has wealth, hard earned that is. But this is essentially being challenged.

    His waiver challenge to the 189 prosecutors-senator is an indication that he is telling us that all the prosecutors and the senator have their respective hidden wealth also.I was hoping that the prosecutors-senator would sign their respective waivers, but only very few of the prosecutors agree to sign a similar waiver. He is correct, all those politicians are as dirty! MAGNANAKAW SILANG LAHAT. All hypocrites!

    By it as it may, this case is about the CJ. His “walk out” is akin to the digging of his own grave, sad to say. He was doing very good for the three hours talk, but the “walk out” really sealed his fate!

      and you are right…this is all about a man who dared to escape but caught, so he challenged everyone…. 

    • wil15

      I am in favor for the signing of the waiver, but it should not be limited to the 189 mentioned by Corona because that would be selective. All senators and congressmen – to start with – should sign the waiver. However, the signing of these waivers should not be used as a condition for Corona to open his dollar accounts. In the first place, it is Corona who is on trial and needs to prove his innocence. In the second place, that condition could not be met because the Arroyos will not sign their waivers. Never in my life  did i expect a lawyer, much less a Chief Justice, to impose such a condition in submitting evidence to prove his innocence against charges leveled against him. He is a disgrace to the legal profession, to the judicial system and to the country. He is not fit to be a Chief Justice.

    Walkout sealed Corona’s fate, says Sen. Estrada….

    Jinggoy, make your decision on the evidences presented and not on the alleged walkout of the Chief Justice.
    Make it substantive, make your decisions based on the substance of the law, evidences and not a witness mistake of walking out.

    Besides, the Chief Justice because of low sugar, he became incoherent, he became confused, he did not know what he is doing. That is the effect of low sugar, losing one’s senses and discretion, totally blackout, he did not know where he was.

    If I were the Senate Impeachment Court, ask the opinion of the doctors on what is effect o low sugar and why Corona suddenly got up.
    Again, Jinggoy, an intelligent and wise Court uses wisdom and law in deciding a case and not on a walk out, that is another case.

    Kahit na ano pa ang gagawin nilang paghuhugas sa kanilang nagawa na panlilinlang ay hindi na nila agad maibalik ang tiwala ng taong bayan.

    Sobra kasi ang tiwala ni corona sa sarili. Wala siyang respeto sa kapwa tao niya. Akala niya ay siya palagi ang nasusunod. Akala niya malulusotan niya ang lahat. Akala niya ay hawak niya ang lahat.

    Nasanay siya sa akala niyang mababaliktad niya ang lahat dahil siya ang CJ of the Supreme Court dahil ito ang nakasanayan niya.  Akala niya ay sobrang galing ang mga abogado niya na magtakip sa kanyang kasalanan.  Nakalimutan na niya na siya ay tao lang at hindi superman o kaya’y Apo Dios.

    Wala ka nang magawa. Tanggapin mo na lang ang katotohanan. Huwag ka lang mag-suicide para hindi madagdagan ang kahiyaan ng iyong pamilya. Ang mga apoko mo ang isipin mo. Wala silang kamalay malay sa iyong mga nagawang katarantadohan.

    Umamin ka na lang. Total wala ka naman ng maidagdag pa sa tatlong oras na drama. Huwag mo nang  dagdagan ang galit ng taong bayan sa iyo. Mas maawa pa sila sa iyo kung tanggapin mo na nagkamalika.

    Hindi masyadong galit sa iyo si Manong Johnie. Maintindihan ka niya.

    Kakaunti na lang ang oras natin sa mundong ito.  Bakit gustuin mo ba na ang mga huling araw mo ay palaging puno ng kaba at takot ang iyong nararamdaman…..?

  • cogito728sum

    Corona’s return to the IC, with the invidiously insidious caveat by the hospital doctors  obviously crafted by the defense and Corona himself-meant mainly to further deceive the people- the imperative of closing oral arguments, and the unnecessary cross by the defense to sustain its position, are now relegated to the sideline.  They are now mainly procedural not substantive issues to arrive at a verdict in compliance with legal requirements of the trial.  Of course, in compliance with the law, the IC has to adhere to the procedural requirements to mitigate claims of mistrial on the part of this devious Corona.  But the paramount issue now is the moral fitness of this despicable creature, a disgrace to a noble profession and to the Filipino people, to return to the Padre Faura compound.  His arrogant utter disrespect to the IC as an august body said it all.  He should not be allowed to return to the Supreme Court.  To do so would more than rub salt to a gaping would.  The Filipino people do not deserve this.

    • mad_as_Hamlet

      I think the Impeachment Court should just declare immediately the penalty of “Removal from Office with Warning that He Cannot Take Home Any Government Property from the Supreme Court.” The penalty can even be proclaimed this morning before the hearing starts in the afternoon. The verdict can come later. Anway it’s just a mere formality. It can just even be txted to Mr. Corona to save him the trouble of going to the Senate Building. Nothing like being a step or two ahead of the situation.

      • cogito728sum

        You know what my friend, I’m in deep thoughts right now trying to fathom the rationales for Corona’s embarrassing behaviour the other night.  I don’t believe that his last utterances (now the Chief Justice of the Republic of the Philippines wishes to be excused) were part of the script.  I view them more as the impulsive and spontaneous assertion of air of supremacy in an individual the same flaw in character that inflicts that distinguished lady from Iloilo.  Ever conscious of their higher position in the rung of social order, these people cannot suppress their egotistical urge of superiority over others.  And this is really sad.

        Corona knows but he purposely forgets that the constitutional protection of his removal from office only thru impeacement is to insulate him from the pressures of politics, not to shield his illegal and morally questionable behaviours from the scrutiny of the people.  A people that, thru their elected representatives, want him now to account for those infractions.  But rather than comply, his lies go on.  And now he’s on a scorch earth policy.  Idamay na ang lahat.  I don’t think the president who can cleanse the germs that bring decay in our government and society as a whole, even with the most potent antiseptic, is already born.  This makes the success of Aquino in mitigating corruption extremely doubtful.  And I don’t envy him at all in his position.

    That’s really funny.  Corona is convicted because he walked out. “He virtually hanged himself with that walkout”,

    Does it mean then that Corona would be convicted of CONTEMPT, and not the charges under the articles of impeachment?

    Come on Senators….guilty as charged, or innocent of the charges, nothing else.  To find Corona guilty of contempt is not an impeachable offense.

    Because he walked out, Corona is guilty of not including some assets in his SALN? Because he walked out Corona is guilty of betraying public trust?

         And I think you too only choose what you wanted to hear . . The prosecution was confident for a non cross examination of his testimony last Tuesday for the very reason that he did reaffirms their accusation on non disclosure of his dollar account in his SALN. As what senator Pimentel earlier stated that if corona was his law student, he would have failed him for using the interpretation of the law as his defense . .

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/FPGLAYFLIRUSI2NAEG3Q5E6PGU R

        Firstly…wrong…Prosec would drop their cross to bring the case up for resolution already (while Enrile is mad, and the senators have an easy reason to “convict”), that is the tactic there.

        Corona’s tactic of the “walkout” actually exposed the “voting”, which he suspected all along.

        Koko…lol….if he does not understand how accounts flow in banking and likens it to bacteria…then no…Koko is a very poor professor. In the first place, koko is being presumptious about his law proficiency, he is just lucky he is a senator….  does not make him an expert nor an authority in law.

        I heard koko and I heard all the others.

    • gerrkits

      You don’t get it do yo? His walkout proves that his testimonies are purely lies, if he is telling the truth why is it that he don’t want to be cross-examine,with common sense one can simply realize the implication of his action. We don’t have always to rely on strong evidence to give our judgement, we should not forget that the SOLOMONIC way of dispensing verdict is more accurate than today’s scheme where in technicalities and the rule of law sometimes undermine the truth and what is morally righteous. 

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/FPGLAYFLIRUSI2NAEG3Q5E6PGU R

        If the prosec’s evidence were true, then it must be attributable to someone definite. If they claim 45 properties, then show the evidence.Not a list from BS Aquino’s appointed classmate. If it’s $12M then show proof, not surmised reports. 82 accounts, that has been explained.

      Guilty for Betrayal of Public Trust. He was forced to admit he had hidden wealth by not declaring dollar accounts on his SALN. While I have never believe he stole any money directly from government, he did so indirectly by Tax evasion. However it is very possible he have corrupted our Judicial system by selling decisions ! I was definite sure that he was responsible for wresting the BGEI property from the Basa-Guidote family even as he twisted the fact on the Libis property and make it a cause to wrest away BGEI by all necessary means ! I hope this will mark the beginning of true Judicial Reform and the end of TRO that is wield by judges wantonly to favor litigants and drag cases indefinitely ! I have high school classmates who’ve used corrupt officials (including law enforcers/military) to wrest business controls from foreign partners who’ve used them initially as dummies for our ultra-nationalist policy of banning them from local businesses. Those are just a few examples of corruptions and the Thief Justice have clearly participated as such. I’ve long hated Thief Justice from the time GoLiar appointed him as her spokesman and then he dip his hands to the BGEI property dispute where the late Art Borjal exposed his shenanigan in that case ! I was horrified to find we have such kind of lawyer aspiring to join the SC then. FVR must be made to account how he have allowed this craven cretin eventually corrupted our entire Judicial system in his own image ! That is the big damage that Thief Justice have inflicted on the country and leave us a legacy that may take a while to clean up as he left us a Judicial bureaucracy that may be as dirty as he is ! We could clearly see by the posters here who are probably mostly from the Judicial bureaucracy valiantly defending Thief Justice and then excoriating PNoy for his determination to get rid of him. While we can now see the dawn on getting rid of corruption, we should continue to be vigilant to prevent it’s resurrection in other forms. Perhaps PNoy can institute a policy for amnesty for those who’ve enriched themselves similar to Mandela’s policy for true reconciliation with complete admission of guilt by those who’ve committed crimes against the country.

        Good to see you Wilson.  How’s the old IBM mainframe?

        It would be interesting to see  Filipino society where, prejudice and bias does not exist. Why are most of the people here quick to judge and surmise like they have these special abilities to read thru a man’s soul, or guess someone’s background thru a computer monitor.

        I will venture a guess….the anonymity of the internet! People can just hide behind a screen name and not have to be responsible for whatever it is they say, whatever words they hurl, or what demeanor they may display.  It merely shows the immaturity.

        Free speech…yes, but that comes with responsibility.  Free speech does not mean that anyone can be highly opinionated and then force themselves on someone else. Fora, such as this, are meant to be places where ideas and opinions are exchanged….not rammed down someone else’s throats.  There is an utter lack of respect. Posters who do not have the same views as the most active commenters are often pounced on with accusations and insults.

        If I say I like Coke and someone else happens to like Pepsi….they can say so, but for them to criticize my choice and intimidate me into agreeing with their choice is just so grade school…schoolyard bullies on the internet.. but what will that ever prove or accomplish.

        So…do you want to talk about changing society in the Philippines? Let’s begin by respecting one another regardless of the differences in politics and opinions. You can’t force anyone to admit what you say is their their guilt.  That is pre-judgement, or much worse, duress, coercion or torture. No, utopic changes can not happen without basic respect and a sense of responsibiity in each and everyone. You and I included.

        I will defer discussing your comment  and the more esoteric things until such time.

    respect and confidence of the Filipino people?”

    First of all he didn’t “earn his position”, he was appointed illegally by his soul-mate Gloria.

    Secondly it was 10 days? ago he denied the existence of any dollar accounts… then he admits to 4 before the senate and nation…so he’s a proven liar…does that betray public trust or inspire admiration?

    Thirdly, whatever is in those accounts are not peanuts… he has never claimed them in his SALN or likely paid BIR tax on them…does that gain his respect?

    The Senate President should have sentries posted around the Senate Building today and advanced monitoring teams in the vicinity. Upon information that Mr. Corona and his convoy are now approaching the Senate, the Senate President should order another immediate lockdown. Mr. Corona must be taught a lesson.

    Let him knock first. He should not be allowed inside until and unless he says the magic password. If he doesn’t, let him stay outside. That’s where he wanted to be anyway.

    But I bet that upon being told that he cannot enter unless he says the magic password, Mr. Corona will say “WAIVER”? And, upon being told that it’s the wrong password, he will try again saying, “OPEN SESAME”?

    He should be given only three tries.

    On what I saw and read, Mr. Renato Corona planned to walk out of the Impeachment Court. He even mentioned his being the Chief Justice of the Philippines casually & walked out without any sign of hindrances or illness. His wife, Mrs. Cristina Corona was even ready to go with him. To me, this is a big insult and disrespect to the authority of Mr. Enrile and the IC. This only shows how arrogant Mr. Renato Corona became. He must have lost his sanity and to him he is the most powerful man in the Philippines. He should realize that as a government servant, he gets his paycheck from the Filipino taxpayers. The Filipino people should never forget that Mr. Renato Corona is working for them and not the other way around.

        You are right! But I will go a little farther. Every Filipino working for the Philippine government gets their paycheck from the Filipino taxpayers. That includes Mr. Aquino, Mr. Drilon, Mrs.Gloria Arroyo as a Congresswoman (not a President, anymore), all the Prosecutors, Mr. Marcos, Jr, Mr. Enrile, Mr Jinggoy Estrada or Ejercito and even Janitors, Janitress in the government. The only difference, right now, is Mr. Renato Corona is the one on trial as an impeached government official. If you read one of my blogs, I said that after the trial, convicted or not, of your man, Mr. Renato Corona, the lawmakers should pass a law to compel everyone in the government to sign a waiver. If they do, this will serve an obviation to the out of control corruption in the Philippine government. If it happens, your man, Mr. Corona, might even be remembered for initiating this measure and the Filipinos would say: At least something good happens out of the impeachment of Mr. Corona in 2012. This supposed law will definitely improve the lives of the impoverished people of the Philippines. No one will dream anymore of going to the dangerous place like the Middle East to be a servant or slave (domestic helpers) of the Arab people, no more Filipinos will live under the bridges and on the side of the railways, no more squatters, professional or otherwise and no more urchins walking like zombies in our country, Philippines.

  • victorts

    Trillanes does not know what he is talking about so he is excused for his unreasonable comments.  But Jinngoy and the other senators who have brains should not be guided by emotions over Corona’s leaving the impeachment court.  As it turned out, his medical condition was the big factor in his leaving.  These senators who are not embarassed to get their porks and more, should not be so onion-skinned in discharging their duties.before thinking about them. 

    These senator-judges may not have experience in impeachments, but that should not be an excuse for not weighing the evidence presented before they render judgment.  I don’t believe the laypersons in a jury in the U.S. have more fairness in them than these supposed to be knowledgeable and honorable senators. 

    If these senators blindly convict Corona, the whole impeachment process should be abolished because the senators are not up to the task to  be fair and objective as judges.  If their reason for their judgment would be Aquino’s lobbying, the senate itself should be done away with. 

    Salonga, Tolentino, Sumulong, Pelaez, Puyat, Marcos, Perez, and others as brilliant, are really sorely missed in the erstwhile august chamber.

    We hope this comment goes through. CORONA’S leaving the Senate Impeachment Court without permission is a “BLATANT INSULT” to Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, & the Senator-Judges. His alibi that being a DIABETIC, his blood sugar went down (termed HYPOGLYCEMIA – refers to a blood sugar level that must be below 50 mg/dl) was found out to be 167 mg/dl at the time he WALKED away. Normal blood sugar level is between 70 – 105 mg/dl. So, in short, CORONA’S blood sugar was very normal (a little high, but that is an acceptable range because CORONA has already eaten (termed  POSTPRANDIAL blood sugar).  His also alibi of having a “HEART ATTACK” was also a BIG LIE, and that’s why he is going to the Friday, May 22, 2012 trial (against medical advice) – well it’s because CORONA is just pretending to be sick just like GLORIA MACAPAGAL ARROYO. We hope that CORONA will attend his much awaited trial and will not do another premeditated, well planned tactic to point fingers to others and will say I WILL SIGN A WAIVER with the condition that Senator Drilon, etc. will also sign a waiver. CORONA must remember that he is the one on trial before the Senate Impeachment Court and nobody else, and therefore must be GRILLED regarding his already admitted DOLLAR BANK ACCOUNTS and must justify with credible supporting documents how CARLA (Daughter of CORONA) is now the owner of the BASA-GUIDOTE ENTERPRISE, INC. business. Sister Flory Basa must be summoned and testify as to what really happened to this BGEI ownership issue.

    The CJ is returning to the witness stand against the advice of his doctors.  That would give the senators and the public the opportunity to know first hand why he wanted to be excused.  Our perceptions can do us in, because not all of them are true and could be a misreading of events only.  I remember somebofy in one small community who was considered a witch only because of prejudice and perception and she sufffered a lot.  The fact was she was not, even heroic in a calamitous moment.  It doesn’t pay to be rash or come to quick conclusions because somebody appeared to “walk out on you.”  Better clarify first, and this opportunity can be the moment when the CJ returns to the IC. If true that he walked out on the senators, the verdict should not be conviction; it could be contempt which is not impeachable.  I think it is misleading the public to say that now that he admitted that he has 4 dollar accounts, therefore he should be convicted.  If I rmemeber correctly, what he denied was having 82 dollar accounts which his powerpoint presentation smothered to the ground!  We should not belittle his knowledge of the law; it was his belief that due to the absolute secrecy of the Foreign Currency Deposit Law,  the same may not be included in his SALN.  We could differ in our views about it, but nobody could be convicted out of sincere, honest belief.  You could believe the CJ to be a thief and nobody can stop you; that is your belief.

      No matter what he says wont change anything since he has no

      While I respect your personal opinion, I based my conclusion from his track record of lying for so long starting with embellishing his own academic records and lying as GoLiar’s spokesman by brazenly twisting facts to deodorized GoLiar’s accomplishments.  Then he masterminded the wresting the BGEI property from the Basa-Guidote family even as he twisted the fact on the Libis property and make it a cause to wrest away BGEI by all necessary means ! I’m no psycho analyst, but I try to draw psychological profile of Thief Justice as I try to analyze his actions (past and present) to fully understand who are we dealing with. In my amateur practice, I have correctly anticipated his moves and reactions and have drawn a profile of an EVIL hiding in a sheep’s clothing no difference from GoLiar who is as public to show her fervent prayers for photo-ops ! While you may be impressed with his apparent knowledge of the law, I beg to disagree with you because he twisted them and I’m no lawyer to see it clearly but you easily swallowed his lies like how Fr. Bernas have twisted them also to let knaves like Thief Justice get away with impunity ! Remember the saying, for EVIL to Triumph, it only takes Good Men to Do Nothing ! We have been under an Evil regime for a long time under Macoy and it was very hard to get rid of him and took a lot of lives from the cream of our youth that most of us have probably remembered them like Enrique Voltaire Garcia II (or III) a UP student leader who became the youngest 1973 ConCon delegate and imprisoned by Macoy. While he died outside of prison, he was released only by Macoy when it was clear he was dying and not wanting to be blamed for his death ! I’m glad that JPE finally saw the Evilness of Macoy when Ninoy was brutally killed and solemnly/secretly vowed justice for him. While it looks like EDSA I was an easy venture in retrospect, JPE was forced to put his life on the line upon the discovery of the plot to remove Macoy. That should be a lesson for us to get rid of Evil, before it can take it’s root in the country and my own little effort to wage a battle against the Thief Justice. I’m no lawyer but have successfully engaged a lawyer in the Midnight Appointment decision and willing to debate the stupid Ponente named Lucas to destroy his ponencia and reversed his decision that marked his association with the Evil Thief Justice ! While stupid Lucas will never accept my challenge to debate me on his stupid ponencia, making it as unchallenged is a big mistake that should be overturned, because it overturned a precedent decision under the Narvasa court that was decided unanimously while the overturning was by a mere majority only. That happened because then CJ Puno did not have the courage to defend the ponencia where he also voted with it.  Thus I hated walang bayag Puno for acquiescing to GoLiar’s wish, while CJ Davide flatly turned down Thief Justice’s initial ascension to SC during FVR’s attempt to appoint him during the same transition period for Erap and clearly explained to aspirant Thief that it falls on Midnight appointment that is banned by Constitution (who was salivating for the position then).

      You must be intelligent enough to sense what is genuine & what is fake, see all angles not just what you perceived is right. Accroding to Cuevas, he insisted CJ to go back to the senate court, what do you mean by this? he is actually going back to the senate IC not because he is eager to but again, he knows the gravity & the implication this will make for his defense. 
      he is returning t the senate against the advice of his doctors? what a crap. c’mon don’t make it like his returning is like “utang na loob” of the filipinos. he is doing this for himself alone, not to the benefit of the public, not even to the benfit of the senator judges.
      can’t you see how this whole BS now is unraveling, it’s all insulting to the whole country. the world is watching us, the very chief justice, the highest magistrate of the country who is expected to have the most respect of the law has the nerve to disrespect the IC.
      sometimes, the real truth is not seen or heard, it is felt.

  • F_U_FedUp

    The audacity of the man to plea bargain: “I’ll open mine if 189 others open theirs”. He, not they, is the subject of the impeachment.

    Today if he appears he should come with his bank statements (all 82 of them) to show which ones are still current (4 accounts). This would produce hard evidence, evidence that was not capable via AMLA. Time is of the essence and he was aware of this yet he chose to waste 3 hours and 3 days after his walk-out.

    As for other matters he stated, unless they can be supported by hard evidence, then such would be regarded as hearsay and not admissible. He as a law professional is expected to know the rules of evidence.

    His justification for what was done to the Basa Guidote people smacks of envy and had nothing to do with what was right. The public cannot expect to receive just treatment from any institution presided over by such a person. The position of Chief Justice demands the highest level of morality; sadly, this unscrupulous person is devoid of this quality.

    I eagerly await today’s theatrics.

    This is one of the Articles of Impeachment that the prosecutors missed to include:

    1. Ang ating punong mahistrado ay pinalaki sa magulang na walang modo, walang respeto, tarantado, maninikil, magnanakaw at bastos. Then the prosecutors will proceed with evidence such as the poking of gun on the face of his poor and helpless tenant, the BGEI trail, the acceptance of his appointment in the middle of the night, etc.

    After all, I realized it was not Drilon who helped the prosecution strengthen its case; it was Corona himself as he walked his way out.

      Sa mga Basa naman ang tatay nina Ana na si Jose ay lumalabas na paborito ng kanyang ina o lola nina Ana at noong panahon na yon ay walang magawa ang magulang ni Cristina na nagngingitngit at etong c Cristina hinintay ang tamang oras ng mamatay na ang mga magulang nila at doon na nag umpisa ang kalbaryo ng mga Basa sa tulong at impluwensya nitong c corona. Kasalanan ba ng isang anak tulad ni Jose III na malapit at paborito ng magulang? Mag isa yatang lalaki etong c Jose III. Masama ba na lumapit ang anak sa magulang para humingi ng tulong para mapag aral ang mga anak? Ke Corona at Cristina alam na natin ang sagot sa mga katanungang eto. Kaya nangyari ang ganito sa BGEI. MORAL, eto ang importante sa isang tao.

      • beatmanny

        karapatan nya yun binigay sa kanya ng batas hindi lamang sya kundi kahit sino kaya dapat maging patas tayo at gamitin ang tamang proseso sa paglilitis at siguraduhing walang karapatan ang mayuyurakan. kung sa tingin nyo ay ginagamit ang batas para pagtakpan ang mga kabalbalan ng mga kurakot, amiyendahan ang batas. kaso yung mga congressman lalo na sa kampo ni noynoy sila mismo ang ayaw pumirma ng waiver.

      • antonioluna

         kung hindi mo naiintindihan ang batas na iyan ay para sa protection ng mga foreign investors para mahikayat silang mag invest dito sa pinas at ginagamit namang protection ni asong corona para hindi mahalungkat ang mga dolyares nya na kailanman hindi nya maipapaliwanag ng legal

      • beatmanny

        paki cite po ang batas na nagsasabi na hindi absolute ang fcdu law para naman malinawan ako. kaya nga pinapapirma din ni corona ang 189 congressman + drilon kasi alam nya hindi rin pwede basta bulatlatin ang kanilang mga accounts kung meron man. at agree si drilon dito (alam mo yung response nya).
        mukhang wala ka po kasi alam mawalang galang na butas butas ang paliwanag mo at inconsistent pa.

      • antonioluna

        basahin mo po ang kasaysayan ng batas na iyan para maintindihan mo
        at basahin mo na rin ang salitang batas na nagsasabing lahat ng assets ng isang public official ay dapat ihayag at walang sinasabing exemption kaya doon pa lang palsu na kaagad ang sinasabi mong absolute, oo maaring absolute iyan kung ang layunin mo ay manggulang

      • beatmanny

        again, hikayatin nating ang mga kongresista na amyendahan ang batas para waiving all public officials their right about foreign deposits. mas maganda yun kaysa naman tirahin mo si corona lang at pagkatapos ay wala na.

      • antonioluna

        tama yan pero naiintindihan mo rin ba ang strategy ni cheap dog? maari mo bang usigin ang lahat ng akusado sa pinas ng sabay sabay?sabihin na nating lahat ng tao sa gobyerno ay magnanakaw sapat na dahilan ba iyon para hindi ituloy ang impeachment?
        tama ang sinasabi mo huwag ng amyendahan ang batas irepel na lang parehas dahil puro magnakakaw lang ang nakikinabang sa mga batas na iyan samantalang kung walang kang itinatago ay bakit ka aasa sa protection ng batas na iyan

      • beatmanny

        hindi ako agree kung sinasbi ni corona na dapat kasuhan din kaagad ang mga kongresman. pero ang pagssign ng waiver ay isang napakagandang step kung sakali man in the future ay maakusahan sila sa tamang pamamaraan ay magagamit ang waiver na ito para mabusisi ang kanilang mga yaman. yun lang naman. napakasimple. kung ipipilit na litisin si drilon sa korte ngayon kasama ng 188 ay naku sasama ako sayo sa pagtuligsa kay corona.
        napaksimple hindi mo kaya intindihin.. tsss.

      • antonioluna

        ikaw ang mahirap makaintindi dahil alam mo naman na hindi gagawin nila drilon at 183 congressman iyon na para na ring sinabi ni asong corona na wala talaga syang balak magbigay ng waiver sa dollar accounts nya katulad ng ipinangako nya, wala syang palabra de honor sabagay ang mga taong sinungaling ay wala talaga nyan
        itanim mo sa isip mo na si cheap dog ang nakasalang sa impeachment hindi si drilon at 188 tongressman, hindi ako ganyan kabobo para kumagat sa diversionary tactic nya.
        sa ibang banda sa palagay mo aalisin nila ang dalawang batas na nagpuprotekta sa mga magnanakaw?kahit mga magnanakaw may self preservation din at kung lalawakan natin ang argumento, hanggang ngayon ba hindi mo alam na ang mga nakaupo ay mga negosyante kaya ang mga ipinapasang batas ay puros pabor sa mga negosyante at karamihan sa mga negosyanteng iyan marami diyan gumagawa ng illegal kaya ano ba ang inaasahan mo tangalin nila ang mga batas na nagpuprotekta sa mga illegal na gawain?

      • beatmanny

        walang imposible sa 188 congressman. napatunayan nila nung pirmahan nila ang complaint sa loob lang ng 1 1/2 hour. kaya di ko na binasa rest of your post una pa lang sablay na.

        ungas. hindi pinapapirma ang 189 para pigilan ang verdict. yun ay para i-waive din ni corona ang right nya na hindi naman kailangan pala kasi di naman pala kailangan i-submit sa SALN yung dollar account (bago ka mag lecture bigyan mo ako ng batas para pasinungalingan ito wag mo pabasa history gawain ng tamad yan)

    Presidential system of governance has a lot of damaging effects if not properly maintain its independence. If an appointed Supreme Court Justice will be like a Good Follower, then what happen next to our Democracy? A big bargain and a waste of time of having this type of government. Pnoy will consume his time be-witching the past, and not good for the progress of 
    this nation. Parang natulog ang lahat sa panahon ni Pnoy!

        Troy, kung di ka lang kapangalan nung close sa akin… Anyway, pwede ba kitang i-enlighten konti? Di sayang yung ginagawa ni Pnoy na isa2x nyang pinapanagot ang nakaraang rehimen at para di pamarisan. Bilyon2x ang nabubulsa ng mga opisyales ni gma at maging kultura at pag-iisip natin ay naging corrupt. Kelan natin umpisahan magbago kung ating mga anak ay matuto na ring mangurakot at sabihin nila na tama ang magsinungaling para takpan ang krimen? Of corz, di agad perfect ang “daang matuwid” ni Pnoy but what better way to start it than with jailing gma and corona. Big fish muna para matakot na yung mga small fries at di na pamarisan. Don’t worry, on schedule pa rin si Pnoy at di mauubos ang term nya marami na tayong naipakulong na mga tiwali at magnanakaw sa kaban ng bayan, kahit sino pa sya, ok ba , Troy? May na-miss tuloy ako. .;-)

        I support Noynoy’s actions in getting rid of corruption. In fairness, wala pa namang nagiging issue kay PNoy na siya ay corrupt.

        The only issue i have this early, is that nilalagay niya sa pwesto yung mga taong miyembro ng kanyang KKK. Which is a standard practice ng mga TRAPO. Ang daming mga more QUALIFIED career civil servants sa bansa natin, and yet mga KKK ang kanyang nilalagay sa pwesto.

        At DEFENSIVE siya kaagad nung mabulatlat yung isa niyang cabinet member at napatunayang mali din yung nilagay niyang property appraisal sa kanyang SALN.

        Isama mo na yung pagiging DEFENSIVE niya dun sa opisyal ng gubyerno na inakusahang humihingi ng bribe sa isang public bidding ng PAGCOR.

        The Defense and the Prosecution panel have already submitted their evidences and positions before. The prudent thing to do for the Senator-Judges is to judge based on the evidence at hand. Corona’s arrogant behaviour is irrelevant to the case.

        In the US, many accused people have been arrogant to the Judge (for example, Lindsey Lohan). But their behaviour only affected their sentencing, not the verdict. The verdict is still based on evidence.

    Corona needs to cook some very convincing ALIBI this morning, to explain his action. His medical condition is not enough to convince that his walk-out was not pre-meditated.

    the senators now see the same dirty tricks employed by the mob to oust the cj. fortunately, the senators see through this and are reminded of the erap debacle. will they allow this to happen? i don’t think so. not after being shown the real reasons for the ouster campaign.

Kulang lang sabihin niya ay lahat sila nakapag isip na ano ba talaga ang resulta ng voting, he is insider as one of them beside his group has the most influential group in the senate control. Kaya alam na niya ang pulso ng mga kasama niya sa senado. Your speculation is 100 % wrong. See the decision next week? CJ Corona was convicted of the Art of Impeachemnt.

      Because whatever happened, either there’s evidence presented or not against CJ Corona, ethier strong or weak, solid or substantial, the 2 senators will vote for acquittal. In my opinion even Sen Marcos will vote for acquittal to affirm his hatred to Pnoy for rejecting the quest for the Marcos family to heroe’s burial of the late dictator…..Probably these 3 senators are for acquittal, others according to Sen. Jinggoy had almost made up their minds….

    Senator Drilon said the issue at Corona’s trial was his failure to report an asset. “A dollar account is an asset,” Drilon told reporters. “If you have a dollar account, you either report in foreign currency or in peso equivalent. But what is required is the reporting of the asset.”  
    I don’t understand why so many government officials don’t understand the SALN.  The instructions are very clear.  Foreign currency is to be converted to peso based on the value of the currency as of Dec. 31.

    Maybe someone needs a power point presentation to show government employees how to fill out their SALN.

    • adminmycom

      I think the issue is because they are trying to DISPUTE that foreign currencies need not be disclosed in the SALN by virtue of the FOREIGN CURRENCY DEPOSIT ACT.

      Pwedeng pagtalunan na yung non-disclosure ni Corona ay dahil lamang sa “interpretation issue”. Hindi pa naman na-e-established na ito ay dahil sa CRIMINAL intention.

      Mga PAYASO kasi ang binoboto ng mga tao na siyang sumusulat ng mga DEFECTIVE na batas. At pag itong mga BATAS na ito, ay mali-mali ang interpretation, nagagalit sila.

      Kasalanan ninyong lahat ito!

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NU25UAHRAOFV3M63M2XTFBQIFI bong

        Sa CSC law doon nakasaad sa SALN ang sinasabi ni Sen Drilon ang lahat na assets, local or foriegn sa lahat na government employees ay required to fill up,  meroon pang space provided na waiver na pipermahan, doon nag base si Ombudsman Morales makakuha ng tulong sa AMLC. Alam na lahat ng sino man naging Government employee kc when I was in government nagpi fill-up din ako. Palusot lang iyan foreighn Currency Secrecy law na dahil daw kung i declare pa sa SALN ang dollars nila y hindi na secrete. That’s illogical reason, para bang nagpapa inosente sa batas. Mali ang interpretation nila. Sen Drilon is correct. Corona is Chief Justice pa naman, iyan pa logic niya? Aba kaya pala flip flopping ang mga decision nila sa SC dahil mga bukok ang pagkakaintindi sa batas, o talaga sinasadya nila sa pag interpret sa mga batas ay para meroon sila pinapaboran?

      • adminmycom

        Maaring tama ang interpretation mo.

        But to qualify this as an example of BETRAYAL OF PUBLIC TRUST, kailangang ma-establish na merong deliberate criminal motive to hide an asset. Kaya nga ang tanong ni ENRILE nung simula pa lang ng impeachment: “Is it a HIGH CRIME?”

        Ang mga high crimes, ay tulad ng PLUNDER ni ERAP. Accepting BRIBES in exchange for a favourable decision. etc.

        It’s the reason why the Supreme Court is a COLLEGIATE body. Maaring magkaka-iba ang interpretations nila.

        Tulad halimbawa, magkaka-iba ang decision nila nung ACQUITTED si HUBERT WEBB. Pero yung majority decision syempre ang masusunod.

        I’m not sure if a wrong interpretation of the law, by itself, is impeachable. So ibig sabihin it is criminal for a Supreme Court judge to make an error in interpreting the law.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NU25UAHRAOFV3M63M2XTFBQIFI bong

        Have you not remember bago itong impeachment trial ni CJ Corona ay meroon ng 2 government employees na nasibak sa serbesyo tungkol sa hindi nila na declared sa SALN nila ang mga ari-arian? Latest of that cases was uphold by the SC headed by CJ Corona a decision of lower court dismissing a BIR collector who failed to disclosed in his SALN a market stall he owned. All his retirement benefits were forfeited pa. Pipetsugin ba naman empleyado, Kawawa siya diba? Kaso wala ka magagawa dahil if you break the law, so be it! How much more if higher officials of our country na dapat ay mga modelo who are facing the same case? Eh ano ba ano ba talaga ang batas pag ang nasasakdal ba ay ang pinaka mataas na JUDGE sa bansa ay hindi impeachable or dismissal? Ito ang ginagamit na argumento ng taga depensa na the SALN’s undisclosed properly is not impeachable offense which is in my mind is a double standard interpretation law again used by the Defense team. Mismo nga si CJ Corona ay isa sa nag vote noon i- UPHOLD ang kaso ng ordinary BIR collector, eh ngayon ito-tolerate sa kanya na non-impeachable offense? O dahil ba iyon BIR Collector ay nasibak dahil walang kakayahan mag hire ng gaya ninanina Atty Former Justice Cuevas?

      • adminmycom

        Ang argument kasi ng DEFENSE is that may reason daw naman na hindi i-declare yung dollar accounts ni Corona by virtue of the Foreign Currency Deposits Act nga.

        So meaning to say, if we will follow the Defense argument, hindi niya ito nilagay sa SALN dahil ito ang kanyang interpretation ng batas.

        Unlike the poor man who was convicted, he had no reason why he did not include his assets in his SALN.

        So what is now being disputed is the interpretation of the law, and NOT the motive to hide the asset. So if you WRONGLY interpreted the law with a clear conscience, how will it be tied to being a BETRAYAL OF PUBLIC TRUST?

        Betrayal of Public Trust is you know it is wrong, and yet you still committed the act. Corona did not include such asset in his SALN because he believes the Foreign Currency Act allows him to do so.

      • turkak

        I worked at FNRI-DOST for 7 years, evrytime period to file a SALN arrives. the institution just gave all the SALN forms to all employees without the benefit of educating the employees how to fill up such form properly. Now if we apply the law that filing incorrect is a crime, then all government employees in the government service are guilty of such crime. No one will be innocent because all of them filed incorrect SALN.

        Guilt is determined by the court…

        The proper way in accordance with the rule of law, is;

        1. File a case against those whom you think committed a crime.

        2. Present evidence and witnesses to substantiate your claim.

        3. Let the accused rebut your accusations by letting him present his own evidence and witnesses.

        4. Let the court judge whether your accusations have legal bases or not.

        5. Let the court judge the case based on evidence and witnesses presented by both parties.

        6. If the accused felt that he was deprived or there was an error in the judgement, he can pray for reconsideration or make an appeal to the higher courts. (However, in the case of an impeachment of an impeachable official, it was provided for in the Constitution that the Senate has the sole power to try and decide an impeachment case. It means, there is no way to make an appeal.)

    Corona will go back today, apologize to the court and sign an unconditinal waiver.

    The prosecution and Penoy senators will then grandstand and try hard to humiliate Corona publicly and dissect his bank account.

    The defense will prove that there are no anomalous transactions worthy of impeachment.

    Based on this evidence, the people’s minds and perception on Corona will change, proving that there is still hope for the Filipinos.

    Oral arguments will be set, the pro Corona Senators will have a field day saying why they will acquit,  The anti Coronas will still ride on emotions of the people, muddle up the issue and convict based on an unimpeacheable offense – that he did not declare his FC in the SALN.  Well, who even does that declaration? Drilon?

    Ultimately, CJ will be acquitted, making Penoy lose his face once again.  He’s fuming mad now.

    The people will clamor for the 188 Congressmen and the Senators who convicted Corona to release their waivers…  everybody’s a suspect now.

    And that will be the change everybody is looking for..  that is genuine change, not the Aquino fabricated, media-hyped, all-talk, vindictive type!

    • pinklace88

      Whatever he does today is just damage control & a desperate attention/ sympathy seeking move, remember the article of impeachment was about non declaration in the SALN and he already admitted that with a reasoning non acceptable to those literate of the constitution.
      signing the unconditional waiver will only benefit the search for the ending balances, amounts in the accounts, then how much was not declared will be answered. at the same time, this will make the investigation of the OMB easier as supporting evidences on ill gotten wealth. got it?

    judge and the prosecutors”  – Right, Corona is the Chief Justice dapat alam niya eto, yun complications ng actions niya ang tagal na niya sa korte bakit ganito siya mag-isip… ito po yun sinasalamin ng ating Judicial branch at sa buong gobyerno. halos lahat trapo!

        Kahit takutin niya or hindi… dapat hindi siya gumawa ng makakasira sa kanya, sa kanyang integridad, baka sa huli tuluyan na siya i convict. hindi kasi biro ang impeachment or kahit normal na paglilitis pa ito. Ang batas dapat laging sini-seryoso.

      • adminmycom

        I’m not sure if you are referring to the WALK OUT, or yung hamon niya kay Drilon at sa ibang Congressmen na i-waiver din yung mga bank accounts nila?

        Alin sa dalawa ang tinutukoy mong ginawa ni Corona na nakakasira sa kanya?

        Sa palagay ko, magandang “dare” ito dun sa mga Liberal Party congressmen. Tutal si Noynoy naman ang nagsabi na TUWID NA DAAN, then hindi dapat mahirap sa kanila na patulan yung hamon ni Corona. Tutal bubulatlatin lang naman yung bank accounts nila? Madali lang gawin, diba?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CXSAKSY3PCRQRSVZH4LOEO2RQ Marko

         Well maganda kung sa maganda para mahatak na lahat ng trapo. Pero dapat hindi niya ginawa yun hamon, kung may alam siya na katiwalian din, eh di mag sampa rin siya ng kaso, ihabla niya rin… humanap siya ng ibidensya. Alam niya naman ang batas eh… di ba madali lang? di ba?

      • adminmycom

        Mahirap humanap ng ebidensya, lalo na kung tungkol sa SALN at bank accounts. Nakita mo nga si TUPAS gumamit pa ng ILLEGAL leakage ng bank account ni Corona.

        Pero kung ang Liberal Party ay isinasapuso ang tinatawag na TUWID NA DAAN ng kanilang padrino na si Noynoy, wala pang 15 seconds ang PUMIRMA sa waiver, tapos na! Tama ba, dre?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CXSAKSY3PCRQRSVZH4LOEO2RQ Marko

         So wala ng silbi ang ebidensya, dahil mahirap makahanap nito? tsk tsk tsk at ang “tuwid na daan” that you keep referring to is just words that does not really mean anything, kaya nga marami ng nawawalan ng kumpyansa sa presidente dahil sa ganyang puro salita. The bottomline dre? I disagree. So respect that and I will respect what you have.

      • adminmycom

        Wala naman akong sinabing walang silbi ang ebidensya.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CXSAKSY3PCRQRSVZH4LOEO2RQ Marko

         Well dre wala pa sa batas ang Waiver, kaya may right parin silang tumanggi, nag agree naman ako sa iyo na dapat isa batas ang ganyang waiver, pero sa ngayon with respect dre eh may karapatan silang hindi pumirma at dapat hindi siya gumagawa ng ganung condition lalo na kapag ikaw ang nasasakdal.

      • adminmycom

        In effect, PWEDE ring tumanggi sa waiver si Corona.

        Problema ito ni TUPAS kung paano mako-convict si Corona kung hindi naman niya nakikita yung laman ng bank accounts ng nasasakdal.

    With what happened in the impeachment last Tuesday, Corona’s sudden walk-out after his three-hour lambasting of his perceived enemies and proclaiming himself and his family as clean and frugal, and admitting he has dollar accounts – Corona has proved beyond reasonable doubt that he is unfit to be our Chief Justice.

    In my opinion, a senator should consider his/her decision to
    Corona Trial for possible violation with the Art II of Impeachment filed
    against him.  We have 3 laws very important in connection with this Impeachment processes to observe. 1. The Art.XI Sect 17 of 1987 Philippine Constitution; 2. The Rep
    Act 6713, An Act Establishing A Code Of Conduct  And Ethical Standard for All Government
    officials under  Sect . 8  Statement and Disclose (SALAN) ;  and the 3. Foreign Currency Act # 6426.

    If Corona, on his self serving interpretation, as he claims
    not guilty for these mentioned above laws in keep maintaining  Accounts in US Currency and failed to
    disclosed in his SALN  as not impeachable
    offence then this will give precedent  to all government officials or
    employees to hide their ill-gotten wealth to open and deposit these US Currency
    under Foreign Currency Act to protect their personal self serving purposes.

    The very  purpose of
    the Impeachment trial is to investigate the Impeachable officer if he/she is
    qualified to continue his/her post or be  removed from office for possible
    culpable violation of the Laws.

    Therefore, as CJ Corona as the highest Judge of the country,
    must have the highest integrity, probity and he should know how to interpret
    the Philippine Constitution with highest integrity for the interest of the
    Filipino people not for self-serving interest like he did in hiding his US
    Dollar in his US Dollars Accounts. Therefore,  he deserves a  guilty verdict.

Sana tayong hindi nila kapanalig na mayroon ding dakilang adhikain at pangarap para sa ating Inang bayan ay wag manatiling tagamasid bagkus sumuporta sa mga grupong nagtataguyod ng mabuting pamamahala.

    Walkout sealed Corona’s fate, says Sen. Jinggoy Estrada…

    Senator Jinggoy, your fate is sealed.
    Dahil hindi ka na mananalo sa susunod na election. You have done nothing in the Senate.
    It is now time to elect with brains and ideas. No more decorations.

    Just like your father said, hindi lang walkout sa Senado ang aabutin mo, Pupulutin ka pa sa kangkungan.
