Coronas, Basas reconcile
MANILA, Philippines – In a surprise move on Friday, the feuding family of the wife Chief Justice Renato Corona has reconciled right inside the session hall of the Senate trying the impeachment case of Corona.
It was Corona’s wife, Cristina, who first approached her niece, Ana Basa and sisters seated at the gallery of the session hall while the Senate acting as an impeachment court was on a break.
The Basas accepted and returned Mrs. Corona’s gesture. They engaged in small talk.
Just after a few minutes, Mrs. Corona got the Chief Justice who was seated on a wheelchair just steps away from them and brought him to the Basas.
For a few seconds, the Chief Justice and the Basas hugged each other.
They also posed for a picture as a remembrance of their reconciliation.
Coronas and Basas have openly fought over the ownership of the Basa Guidote Enterprise Inc owned by the family of Mrs. Corona.
