MANILA, Philippines – Chief Justice Renato Corona on Friday gave the Senate, acting as an impeachment court, “without any condition” his waiver authorizing all banks to open all his dollar and peso accounts.

“Nais ko po sanang i-sumite na po sa kagalang galang na Juan Ponce-Enrile yung aking waiver po [I would like to submit to your Honorable Juan Ponce Enrile my waiver],” Corona said, referring to Senate President and presiding officer Juan Ponce-Enrile.

“Hindi ko na po hihintayin yung waiver noong 189 [I will not wait for the waiver of the 189]. I’m submitting this without any conditions whatsoever,” Corona said.

Corona was referring to the 188 congressmen and Senator Franklin Drilon, whom he challenged last Tuesday to sign their own waivers, a condition he set before he would submit his own waiver to the Senate.

“Alam nyo po kagalang na galang na mahistrado, ang problema namin dyan kahit may waiver kayo, kaninong witness ang pupunta ditto [You know honourable Chief Justice, our problem with the waiver is whose witness will go here]?” asked Enrile.

“Kung mamarapatin po ninyo, pwede naman pong patawag yung manager ng bangko [With all due respect, you may call the manager of the bank],” Corona answered.

Senate Majority Leader Vicente “Tito” Sotto suspended the proceedings to “formalize” the acceptance of the waiver. But Enrile decided to instead call all senators to a meeting to discuss Corona’s waiver.

Before this, Corona’s lead counsel and former Supreme Court Justice Serafin Cuevas announced that they would no longer give additional direct examination of the respondent since the Senate accepted their client’s statement last Tuesday as part of the testimony.

Cuevas also recalled the prosecution team’s promise that it would no longer conduct a cross examination of Corona if he would return to the witness stand and no additional direct examination would be conducted by the defense team.

“We found it unnecessary anymore to proceed any further by going into additional direct examination, your honor and we are through with your direct examination,” Cuevas said.

Also before submitting his waiver, Corona apologized to the Senate and the public for what happened last Tuesday when he excused himself without getting the approval of the chamber after giving his opening his statement.

“Ako po ay nagpapakumbaba at humihinging paumanhin sa nangyari noong Martes. Hindi ko po inasahan na ganun ang mangyayari kaya lang po alam nyo naman po ang pinagdaanan namin, particularly pinagdaanan ko sa nakalipas na anim na buwan [I humbly apologize for what happened on Tuesday. I did not expect that to happen but you know what I’m going through, particularly what I’ve been through these past six months],” he said.

“Hindi po madali ang pinagdaanan namin. Mahirap pong i-describe yung sama ng loob at sakit ng loob na aming pinagdadanan the past six months kaya nga lang po ay siguro nagkasunod sunod na po [What we’ve been through wasn’t easy. It’s hard to describe the pain we’re experiencing the past six months that’s why perhaps one thing led to another],” he said.

Corona admitted that he had sleepless nights for almost a week now.

“Hindi po madali o masarap ang kinalalagyan ko ngayon. Nakatutok sa akin ang mata ng milyonmilyong kababayan natin at ako ay hinuhusgahan sa trial na ito [Being where I am right now is neither easy nor comfortable. The eyes of millions of our people are on me and I’m being judged in this trial]],” he said.

“Kaya po siguro hindi rin ako makakain noong [That’s why maybe I couldn’t eat] lunch time before I came here last Tuesday dahil [because] I have to admit with all candor and honesty, nagbabaligtad po ang aking sikmura dahil sa nerbyos [my stomach was churning due to nerves]. Kayo na po ang bahalang magpatawad sa akin [I ask for your forgiveness]…”he added.

Corona clarified that he did not walkout last Tuesday but said he was saddened because it appeared that some people wanted to see him dead first just to prove that he was telling the truth.

“Para bagang kailangan pa bang ako ang mamatay para patunayang ako ay nagsasbai ng totoo [It’s like do I have to die first to prove that I’m telling the truth],” he lamented.

Enrile accepted and even thanked the Chief Justice who could not stop himself from taking a swipe at President Benigno Aquino III.

“I have been disrespected by our President several times. You did not hear me speak one bad word against him because it’s not how I am. I’m not a disrespectful person,” he said in Filipino.

    finally this will show that the CJ has nothing to hide compared to the 189 , CJ really is the beacon of anti-corruption in the government, he was only doing his job in HL and was the victim of a revenge job

    nagulangan yata ang prosecution dito…hinintay munang mag waive ng cross exam tapos doon nag submit ng unconditional waiver…

    bad move din yata ang sinabi ni tupas last wed na mag-waive sila ng cross…kung mag waive sila,dapat di sinabi ng advance…something like showing your arsenal to the enemy…

    ok ang ginawa nya..pero nais ko pa ring makita at marinig ang 189 about sa kanilang waiver..dito natin makikita kung talagang para sa bayan ang paglilingkod nila then the rest of the goverment officials para magkaalaman na….

    All lies, watch the YouTube video ng walkout nya. He finished his speech properly. Wala nang remaining 2 pages. Hindi rin sya naduduwal. Wala syang nararamdaman. Proud at tuso syang umalis. Lumihis nga si Cristina sa dinadaanan nya. Matagal na silang mag-asawa kaya alam ni Cristina kung may nararamdaman sya. Dapat lumapit sya hindi lumayo sa asawa. Lahat kasinungalingan. Go to YouTube and search Corona Walkout. Ginagawa na naman nyang BOBO ang mga Filipino. Dyan ako naiinis kasi the last time I checked, di naman BOBO ang mga Pilipino.

    Now finally the CJ is offereing his waiver without condition, so it wold be right to turn the table to the 188+1 to sign waiver even after the trial. And we will find out who is clean. I’m sure most of them have dollar accounts. Sem Osmena for one who was exiled in the US during Marcos time for sure have dollar accounts. so with the others, then be man enough to show mr congressmen and senators. Because if don’t then it simply they are the on who are hiding something or we could say they affirm absoluteness of RA6426. 

  • dan4321

    Corona,no matter how you apologize and present evidences,your behavior last Tuesday was more than enough to prove that you are not fit to be the Chief Justice of the Republic of the Philippines. To Pro Coronas,is this what you wanted your Chief Justice?- no Discipline and unable to maintain calmness and respect under pressure,worst responds with Arrogance?
    Then knowing that his behavior would indeed backfire,he tried to apologize and gain sympathy?
    Is this what your Chief Justice wanted to be,divert the issues and even blame his in laws-one who is already dead? Isn’t it too UNBECOMING for a Chief Justice? Isn’t too childish and unpofessional even for a regualr guy,how much more for a Chief Justice? Tsk tsk.I hope you use your brains.

  • nolipunzalan

    For me, I want to know the contents of the waiver first.

    Waiver has been given unconditionally.  What is the excuse of the 189?

    • yellow_zombies

      Excuse? Wala kaming excuse! Ah basta! Hindi naman kami ang impeached. hehehe…

  • Hey_Dudes

    Enough of this farcical theatrics from this eskambag and his battery of lawyers.  Too late to be submitting additional documents knowing it is close to weekend with the banks close and witnesses to be summon.  Lokohan talaga ito and clearly another attempt to stall a trial the senator judges resolved will have to be decided by end of May.  GUILTY as charged.  No more leeway, courtesy, respect and others.  Finish the trial now and make this bvvastarrd realize his folly.

    • yellow_zombies

      Agree ako dyan. Wala ng waiver2x kasi sayang lang ang pinaghirapan natin na pera na ninakaw natin. Idol ko talaga si Drilon at Tupas nakita ko mga mansion nila, daig pa ang mansion ni Pacquiao.

  • dawdawmo

    the waiver will show that the CJ has nothing to hide, he is just the victim because of the decision to turnover HL to the farmers

  • yellow_zombies

    Hoy Corona wag ka naman ganyan. Paano na ang mga ninakaw namin? Hindi pwede yun conditional waiver na sinasabi mo kasi meron na kaming SALN. Honest kaya ang mga politiko dito sa Pinas! Cross my heart!

  • dawdawmo

    I wonder what the anti CJ will say now? one by one the complaints have been rendered as hearsays, finally we will know the true nature of the CJ, may he live long and prosper for standing up, lesser people might have succumbed 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XAOQAB3SY5O4XMZHB4IEFWMGQQ Fehtuhs

       Let’s wait for the real contents of those accounts. And we should press all government officials (member of administration or not) to also waive there accounts so we’ll know those who have ill-gotten wealth.

  • kenpascual

    I still would like the CJ to get the waiver of the 189. 

    I also want the CJ to request that audited SALN of candidates has to be one criteria of the COMELEC. Congress should enact law requiring all elected government officials, including incumbents, must have their SALN annually audited.  The audits must be conducted jointly by big external audit firm and COA.  The audit report must be published to be available to the masses.

    If the CJ can able to do the above, then he will earn my fullest regards. This is despite he will be impeached and convicted of his crime, if proven. Only then he can regain his honor.

  • kismaytami

    Nagtatatawa siguro sa kanyang loob itong si Corona, dahil mapapaikot na naman niya sa kayang kamay ang Impeachment Court.

  • Je Lourd Lamoste

    For me, I want to know the content of his bank accounts. 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XAOQAB3SY5O4XMZHB4IEFWMGQQ Fehtuhs

    Ayos. Lahat ng government officials, administration man o minority, magsign na rin ng waiver para malinis ang gobyerno para sa matuwid na daan.

    • dawdawmo

      agree, and history will show CJ as the man who gets rid of corruption in the Philippines, CJ for president!

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XAOQAB3SY5O4XMZHB4IEFWMGQQ Fehtuhs

        Haha. Let’s first have to check if he indeed not having an unexplained wealth based on the contents of his accounts. Signing the unconditional waiver isn’t proof yet that he doesn’t have such unexplainable wealth. Goodluck to him.

    • yellow_zombies

      Hoy di pwede yan. Honest kami sa SALN namin. Hahahaha! Wala kaming mansion, kotse, lupa, tsiks, etc.

  • ofwme2807

    the Senators should set aside temporarily their decision whether to call bank managers in his corona, start questioning the thief about other matters other than his bank accounts…also question to the defense you already rested your case by no longer questioning nato that is why prosecution on lolo cuevas appeal to the prosecution to waive cross-examining the thief due to their no longer

  • sacrebleau

    Nilalaro lang tyo ni CJ Baboy. He is just toying with the Senate. The waiver again looks like a trap to prolong the impeachment trial.

    • yellow_zombies

      Oo nga trap yan. Siya lang naman talaga ang ini-impeach. Kebs sa kanya pag nagsign siya ng waiver, Ah basta, sapat na ang SALN. Honest talaga kami mga politiko. Hehehe…

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QKIKXLTZATX3UJQM2OE4PED2UE Shinigami

       No person under trial with lots of negative publicity thrown at him will want to prolong his agony, at least think about that. What will he get from an extended trial? The waiver I think is not a trap, at least he opened up the idea that his accusers should live with their words of accountability and transparency, it should not apply to Pnoy’s political enemies. Look on the bright side, he will go down dragging all the crooks with him. Let’s see if Pnoy and his allies is all about “Daang Matuwid”.

      • sacrebleau

        Let the “other” crooks have their own trial, their own right to due process. Corona is not a hero, he’s a midnight appointee. He was put there by Gloria to distort the law.

    SO FAR SO GOOD, STEP ONE IS DONE JUST AS I PREDICT IT WOULD HAPPEN

    I expect this afternoon to be the start of GENUINE CHANGE everybody is looking for:

    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!

    • dawdawmo

      exactly, it is ironic that the CJ is the agent for anti-corruption in the country, there is no more impeachable offense left in the trial

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/J4X5RZIRHCGVSXJWSH7DEFN6WI rodger66

      very well said, although I am not for acquittal nor conviction since I do not see the impeachment as an effective solution to corruption.While most of us if not all wants changes, one cannot make fault to convict someone for the sake of changes.

  • WeAry_Bat

    Has the pro- camp ever thought the possibility the 188 were carefully selected as those not exceeding the AMLC limits on dollar accounts?

    Assuming P2B was plundered, of which 40% went to bribes and 10% went into operational expenses, the P1B Corona moved around is all there is of illegal money taken from the government by the previous administration.

    Wow thats generous actually…but what was the challenge to the “188”?…just playing games with the senates and countries time?

    And why didn’t he do this when the allegations of 82 dollar accounts came up instead of wasting all this time and trying to make the ombudsman look like a liar?

    Time waster!!… This country has greater issues than pouring all its resources into your silly games. The poor and unemployed especially. Those in dire need of health care either. 

    Even if these accounts are dry and always were…you are guilty of consuming and abusing an extraordinary amount of time, not to mention the cost…which should be deducted off your severance….when they impeach you Tuesday…time waster!

    • yellow_zombies

      Huh? Time waster? Si CJ ba ang nag-impeach sa kanyang sarili? Bwahahaha… Itong impeachment na to ang waste of time. Dahil sa impeachment na to pipirma na kami ng unconditional waiver. Huhuhu… Paano na ang mga mansion, bank account, kotse, lupa, tsiks, etc namin?

    CJ Corona’s earlier deposition/oral speech and eventual walk-out is enough. His accusation that the late Mr. Basa clearly maligned the Basa Clan. Can he charge a dead person in court more less accuse him? CJ Corona’s mindset is clearly distorted. His fiery speech seethe with resentment and contemptuous arrogance. CJ Corona already insulted the Impeachment Court, the millions of viewers and the public. That speech alone is a guilty plea.  Betrayal of public trust no less.!!!

    • yellow_zombies

  • kenpascual

    To all my fellow countrymen, be it anti or pro CJ, this impeachment case is no longer about the CJ. It is now for the country and the next generation to come. 

    Please jointly rally to hold all public officials accountable. 

    Congress should amend the banking act to waive the bank secrecy law for all public officials, be it elected, appointed or career government employees.

    For high ranking officers, jointly audited (prominent external audit firm and COA) SALN is a must on an annual basis.

    All employees of BIR and Bureau of Customs this requirement applies to all levels including janitors.

    This law should also apply to AFP officials from the ranks of Lieutenant up to five star generals, except for the PNP where auditable rank should start from seargent particularly those assigned in the metropolitan area.

    Those who comply and able to have a clean audit opinion for the successive 5 years or term for those elected or appointed officers, a legitimate and reasonable “paba-on” bonus be given as a token of appreciation. The amount has to be published.

    • boypalaban

    The drama and twist continues. 
    The Impeachment Court says they are not producer of evidence after the waiver was issued.

    The Basa and Corona were seen hugging on “live television”, which they could have done in their own home or someplace else.

    And again, with a question from Miriam Santiago, CJ Corona is on the acting mode again, repeating what he already said.What a MORO-MORO. What a travesty of justice.

    Plan B yang pagbawi ng waiver with condition.  Yung Plan A, he will have a fake sudden a) heart attack b)hypoglecimia, whichever of thw two looks believable thereby illiciting sympathy from the public. If Plan A didn’t work, Plan B, take off the condition from the waiver and reconcile with the Basas (he was working the phone yesterday, that’s why he can’t come back to the IC), appear in court and make an “Analiza” paawa effect to everybody.

    Is this really a chief justice??? ayawan na…

  • marionics

    $2.4M wala sa saln, ok.

    • Satticus

      He didn’t declare because of the confidentiality provision under the Foreign Currency Deposit Act. 

      SALN is a public document, a declaration of an official’s worth perhaps. Why would you declare something that the law (which ironically was enacted by our representatives who seem to be oblivious of its existence) says to be confidential in nature? Maybe he really is not a fool for abiding that provision. Lack of information and understanding yields poor judgment.

      • marionics

        well that is exactly the issue. what prevails, a 1973 law or the constitution? bahala na sila. matanda na sila

      • Satticus

        The Constitution. But the Constitution also states as provided by law. I guess that explains it. The Chief Justice knows. It is basic in statutory construction.

      • marionics

        i did not really check but i heard one legal expert say that the “as provided by law” pertains to the manner of the disclosure rather than the disclosure itself. pero i think the spirit really especially of the 87 constitution (which was a direct result of the abuses of martial law) is for full disclosure and transparency.

      • Satticus

        Yes. But the problem is there are two laws which seem be in conflict. One directs disclosure and the other provides for confidentiality. A jurisprudence on that matter is yet to be rendered, I think.

      • Satticus

        Yes. But the problem is there are two laws which seem be in conflict. One directs disclosure and the other provides for confidentiality. A jurisprudence on that matter is yet to be rendered, I think.

  • PaengSaAmerika

    Now that the senate will render judgement, he will open all his bank account. No more time to check all his account. This is really the proper time for him so that they could not check all his accounts. Remember Friday already and the judgement will happen on Monday. Thief justice you are really one of a kind. Low life garbage.

    • yellow_zombies

      Pwede naman i-extend ah. Kun ayaw ng Senado na i-open ang mga bank accounts, baka miscarriage of justice yan. We should look at all the evidences. It’s better to free 100 guilty persons than to convict one innocent man.

    The question to ask is “is the absolute confidentiality” mentioned specifically in either SALN and the FCDA.  So if his only asset is $2.4M, he will report zero net worth? Bakit may SALN pa?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_DVP4NE2IHZLHNZIQODT3RNGNSM Lawrence

      It is my understanding that “absolute confidentialty” refers to the bank. Pag tinanong ang bangko, pwede nila ideny.

      Pero sa SALN hindi talaga pwede maging confidential.

  • robertomadarang

Are we assured of his/her integrity? If not noynoy, who is who? These leaders today are well educated by prestigious schools here and abroad. These leaders today are the same people who were shouting for change way back time immemorial. But look at them now. What have they done to our country? Each one has his/her role to play. If we just wait for them, we just waste with them. I am trying my best to become better. However, no matter how hard i try, kung wala cooperation ang iba, useless. It’s like driving your car with so much caution, but no matter how careful you are but your fellow drivers aren’t doing their thing, you will still meet the accident. Haist…ang gulo…

Also, bakit si Sen Drilon lang ang sinama nya at di lahat ng Senators kasi takot ba syang i-convict ng mga ito? Bakit di nya isama si Santiago? Bakit di nya isama sina Marcos, Estrada, di ba mga nuno ng pagnanakaw ang mga yan kaya siguradong may tagong yaman/nakaw na yaman ang mga yan, bakit si Drilon lang? Anong klaseng Chief Justice ang sya pang nagpapasimuno ng discriminasyon sa gobyerno? DISCRIMINATION ang tawag dyan!

Simple logic lang, the prosecution desperately want to open the Dollar account, now that the waiver is signed, bigla na lang ayaw nila. don’t tell me walang time, Its an impeachment trial of SC chief justice and just 2 to 3 days di nila makuha o maibigay. come on. let us all be neutral first and then know the truth.

        Sorry wala pang dollar deposits nung late 60’s. So change tune to 1973. Ooops, 1974 pala nagsimula magkaroon ng dollar deposits sa Pinas. Haynaku. Rehearse ulet ng script.

      • wyl5326

        His old dollar account will never turn into hundreds of thousands of dollars in a few months period. Besides, how much do you think he had when he opened his dollar accounts ? I bet he could not have more than $20,000 when he graduated college then and even at 8% compound interest for the next 40 years would never yield an accumulated total of $1 million ! With that the source of fresh fund source could only have come from illegal sources where AMLC reports have transaction detail records of deposits in hundreds of thousands of dollars happening within months from each other.  

      • opinyonlangpo

        The court already got the info from the defense witness. It is up to Corona to disprove their own witness and not the senate. There is no need for the waiver, what is needed are documents to disprove their own witness-the ombudsman. He does not need a waiver to open his own accounts. I was neutral at the start of the impeachment, the lies they fed to the public are unacceptable. I am after the truth.

      While I’m glad that Midnight CJ have finally come clean and reconciled with the Basa-Guidote family, I will commend him for lifting his obstructionists stand to hide his shenanigans. From the AMLC records, it is very clear that he have received fresh funds from unknown sources that is very suspicious in nature. I’ve never believed he is involved in corruption, but it is becoming very suspicious that he may have traded favorable court rulings for money. So opening his dollar accounts would expedite the finding of the TRUTH that he have protected more than his life.  Perhaps he belatedly realized that he can longer hide his multiple lies and all his protestations have not shielded him from attacks.  Don’t try to muddle issue Edgar, it is Midnight CJ who is on trial. It is much better for you to just wait for verdict, instead of continuing to wage a losing battle for the truth. Don’t be bitter if you lost, just move on instead of biting back that won’t make any difference to his case ! Haven’t you learned anything at all in their reconciliation with the family ? It is you who have yet to accept that you tried to hide the truth by waving the flag of RULE of LAW that he tried to subdue himself believing that he is above the Law !

    For me the only reason why Corona did not declare his dollar income is to avoid paying taxes. He tried to hide this income behind a law.  He is saying that he did not declare his dollar income  because there is that law that allows him. But why in the first place would he want to use that law unless he wanted to hide and avoid paying taxes? Pity the other gov’t employees who have only peso accounts and are faithfully declaring all their income.

His problem is he have to disclosed where and what is the source of the fund that was deposited in his dollar accounts. It is not the interest income that is miniscule only for the principal amount running in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Unless one is running a successful business, only very few people can get a return that can explain the principal amounts he got even if he tries to claim he invested in foreign currency trading in a long time, because he never have that much at the start in his professional life to begin with.

      i believe you miss the point. withholding taxes for interests earned in bank accounts are taken by the bank. you can see it in your bank statements but it will not credited anymore in your account. also, it is the bank which will remit the taxes to the government.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/BDM6LB2H5BBAVMXTCOZTR5TUNY Victoria's_Secret

         Thanks. Pardon the ignorance as I am still trying to understand banking. So if that rules out the motivation for hiding the dollar accounts to avoid taxes, there must be another reason. If dollar accounts are legitimately acquired, why hide them? Just because there is a law that allows you to do so? I think that is a very shallow reasoning.

    Madadagdagan na naman ng istorya sa Philippine Law Jurisprudence nyan regarding CJ Corona vs The People of the Philippines! Aside from this,an amendment of Philippine laws regarding SALN´s…Waiving of all assets…it´s rules and bank secrecy will give a big impact to our Laws in the Philippines.

    “I have been disrespected by our President several times. You did not hear me speak one bad word against him because it’s not how I am. I’m not a disrespectful person,” he said in Filipino.,,,,,
    ” Q U OTE ”

    Being Respected

    “We observed earlier that when God commands us to respect certain individuals it is assumed they are respectable. One of the difficult lessons to learn in life is that we are sometimes disappointed by those whom we have come to respect. Parents sin (Colossians 3:21); elders digress (1 Timothy 5:19-20); governments become corrupt (Psalms 9:17); men become wicked (2 Timothy 3:13). In times like these, we remember that the honor we give others, even the undeserving, is a reflection of the esteem with which we hold Christ (Ephesians 6:5-7).U N Q U OT E

      HUMAN effort without GOD will not produce any lasting good results….Because we have to admit, in GOD, we live and move and have our being..apart from Him we can do nothing..

      America is the best example of a country who has forsaken GOD..They do not allow even  the mention of God’s name in any of their insitutions…the result is catastrophic..they are even worst than SODOM and GOMORRAH..

      Our country is no different…we are a nation who calls on the name of GOD but do not  obey his commands…So Immorality and Corruption continue to prevail in all the branches of the government…We need righteous leaders who will honestly lead  our county to greatness again…not TRAPOS and POLITICAL DYNASTIES who only enrich themselves when installed to power…SAY NO TO THEM THIS COMING ELECTION..elect only candidates with high moral values..but do we have really  many options?

        kung ang mahalal na presidente ay kasing linis at moral ayon sa sinasabi natin., sigurado, after 1 week  vice president na ang presidente.,

         ano po iyon? di ibig sabihin ang Presedente natin ay walang kakayahang labanan ang nakapaligid sa kanya at takot siyang gumawa ng aksion laban sa kanila? dahil baka patalsikin siya…..wala talagang pag asa ang bansa natin kung ganyan ang pananaw ng ating presidente…

    to quote a carole king line, “it’s too late baby now, it’s too late.” indeed  you blew it renato corona. your fate is sealed. an angelo reyes option may be the only honorable thing  left to do.

      Bakit ang mga Aquino supporters e mahilig sa suicide….halatang mobster

    Corona clarified that he did not walkout last Tuesday but said he was
    saddened because it appeared that some people wanted to see him dead
    first just to prove that he was telling the truth.

    That’s the price CORONA has to pay to regain the credibility he lost for his arrogant behavior and deceitful nature…To prove he is really sick, people wants to see him dead and then, they can conclude he’s telling the truth..so sad…that’s why the BIBLE said in PROV. 22:1-A good name is more desirable than great wealth. Respect is better than silver or gold…

    Just like the many corrupt officials in our goverment, CORONA may have all the luxury of life while he lives, but one thing is sure,  he cant buy RESPECT..He has to earn it by living a life of integrity, propriety, honesty,respect for the law and FEAR OF GOD..There is no room for any compromise…PRIDE without HONOR is nothing…it’s useless…its a life not worth living..

      tugma ang ating opinyon  parekoy. sa inasal at inusal niya noong martes, wala ako nakitang magandang katangian upang siya ay maging punong mahistrado.wala siyang PDI. prinsipyo, dangal/dignidad, integridad

    hindi na gagamitin ng prosekusyon ang waiver ni corona dahil panalo na sila sa trial by publicity., aminin ma natin o hindi hinusgahan na natin sya bago paman sya humarap sa senado.  dahil ang lahat ng nababasa , naririnig at nakikita sa ano mang porma ng media ay hindi pabor sa kanya, lahat ito ay naka disenyo para humobog ng isang opinyon., BLACK PROPAGANDA ginamit ito ng mga kano sa CNN BBC sa panahon ng cold war, ngayon ginagamit parin ng mga politiko para sa pansariling kapakanan.  at kung talang transparancy at pagpapakita sa tao na malinis ang gobyerno ni ninoy bakit hindi niya rin himukin ang mga ka alyado at myembro ng gabinete na magpa labas ng waiver., ganun lang kasimple., walang kurap walang mahirap ika nga., maglabas ang waiver ang mga ka alyado para malaman kung sino ang kurap at may tinatago, SIMPLE LAMANG HO ITO, ITO AY ISANG KONTRADIKSYON NG DALAWANG PANIG NA ANG ISA AY GUSTONG KONTROLIN ANG LAHAT AT ANG ISA GUSTO PARING MANATILI SA PWESTO KAHIT WALA NA AT HINDI NA KAYA. UHAW PARIN HANGANG NGAYON ANG PINOY SA KAPANGYARIHAN AT KWARTA.

      noong nakaraang martes ko lang hinusgahan ang punong mahistrado. mabuti na lang at nasa youtube para paulit-ulit kong panoorin at limiin kung tama ang aking husga

     “Hindi ko na po hihintayin yung waiver noong 189 [I will not wait for
    the waiver of the 189]. I’m submitting this without any conditions
    whatsoever,” Corona said.

    This is what we called “Flip-Flopping” – a common practice in the SC.

  • ernie rivera

    Bakit parang ayaw yata ng prosecutor na tingnan ang pera sa bangko ni C.J. Are they afraid of the truth or what. Ayaw yata ng mga ito namalaman kung sino talaga ang nagsisinungalin eh. So sa tingin ninyo sino sa kanila ang ayaw malaman ang totoo 

  • parekoy

    FLIP FLOPPING HERO,That’s what the THIEF JUSTICE is..When he felt he earned the ire of the senators judges and the Pilipino people for walking out of the IC and offering an unconditional waiver, he then changed his fighting style..Now he completely acted the opposite..Don’t you think he’s got a double personality that’s is why he is acting this way? But its too late  now..He has completely destroyed his chances beyond repair..His double – mindedness exposed a character not fit for a CHIEF JUSTICE..He is not firm in his convictions..

  • http://twitter.com/IvydelaPacis Carrie Garcia

    Corona signed an unconditional waiver, the Senate went for a break to look at the waiver and confer about it. What was in that waiver? What is the date? Because if it was dated recently then the bank can only show the transactions from the date of issue and if the balances are closed, there will be nothing to see. Plus, he already admitted he had dollar accnts. The CJ, in his opening statement asked OMB Morales, if she could still sleep, yet he reasoned out that one of the causes of his “sickness” was that he wasnt able to sleep. He said “walang ka kaba kaba” yet he said he was nervous thats why he wasnt able to eat. He lambasted the Basas for selling the libis property, but put the amount of sale as the current price, what was the price when it was sold? Was Libis then like the libis now?

  • sitsiritsit

    waiver is only good for the open account heehehehe pag close na wala na.. so pano mo pa ma couner check ang mga previous transaction.. eh mukhang nilipant na lahat sa bagong account… ang galing ng diskerte ahhh

  • jga94

    I don’t trust lawyers in general (which is ironic) so I will wait until ALL his bank accounts have indeed been examined. As for the others, I am in the opinion that a case against them (like that of this impeachment case) should first be filed before such a thing as opening one’s bank accounts to public scrutiny be allowed….Corona’s the Chief Justice, he ceratinly has not acted like one with his over-the-top monologue that ended in all that drama….I know that he is really at high risk for a heart attack since he has had already 2 heart bypass…..so I am not saying that he feigned his reason for the “walk-out” but still…one cannot help but be a bit sarcastic about such things because the timing is lousy.

    And making this case seem like it was for revenge is for me besides the point….the administration has been at him since he was appointed (ie Midnight appointment at that)….even before the Hacienda case had its’ final verdict…and the case had been decided overwhelmingly by the other justices as well( even by Aquino appointees)….so I don’t see what good it will do to take out Corona for that purpose….
