Chief Justice Corona waiver now for real

Prosecution scoffs: Too little, too late, useless

By , |


LIKE LONG LOST RELATIVES. While the senator-judges huddle in a caucus to resolve an issue, real-life drama unfolds with a happy ending. The children of Jose Maria Basa III—Francesca, Ana and Isabel—approach Chief Justice Renato Corona and his son Francis (at right) at the witness stand moments after they kissed and made up with their estranged first cousin, Cristina Corona. SENATE POOL

With only a handful of lawmakers taking his challenge, Chief Justice Renato Corona on Friday submitted an unconditional waiver authorizing scrutiny of all his bank accounts, but the Senate tribunal rejected the move, saying it was a hearer, not a provider, of evidence.

At the close of Day 42 of the four-month impeachment trial, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile announced the tribunal considered case submitted for resolution and a decision would be rendered after the closing oral arguments by the two sides on Monday, or on Tuesday.

Before Corona submitted the unconditional waiver on Friday, lead defense counsel Serafin Cuevas said his panel would no longer conduct a direct examination. Private prosecutor Mario Bautista also manifested that his camp was forgoing cross-examination.

“In light of these reasons and the fragile condition of the Chief Justice, the prosecution will no longer cross-examine him. On the part of the prosecution, Chief Justice, we wish you speedy recovery,” Bautista said.

“I will no longer wait for the waivers of the 189 (lawmakers). I’m submitting this without any conditions whatsoever,” Corona said.

House prosecutors, who had been demanding the waiver, showed little interest.

They scoffed at Corona’s submission of the unconditional waiver.

“It’s too little, too late,” Rep. Juan Edgardo Angara said in a press briefing. “It’s too late in the day and it’s not necessary.”

Deputy Speaker Lorenzo Tañada III said Corona had already admitted in his testimony that he had dollar accounts and did not include them in his statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN).

Because of this admission, the prosecutors believed whatever the waiver would produce would be useless.

Earlier, Corona signed the waiver on his bank accounts but said he wanted all 188 complainants against him plus Sen. Franklin Drilon to do the same first. Except for four, the lawmakers rejected his challenge and branded the move as a stunt. On Friday, Corona said he was making an unconditional waiver.

No documentary evidence

Rep. Miro Quimbo said Corona had failed to present proof to counter the documentary evidence of his alleged $10 million to $12 million dollars presented by Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales, as well as his undeclared P36 million and P12 million peso bank accounts.

Corona said deposits in his bank accounts were “co-mingled” and included funds from his wife’s family corporation, Basa-Guidote Enterprises, and his children.

Corona also failed to present a plausible explanation as to why some of his real properties were not declared in his SALN for six years, Quimbo said. What Corona gave was just his open denial and narration, he pointed out.

“There is no evidence in the face of our documentary evidence. So what is the use of the waiver at this point in time?” he said.

No one interested

“I’m confused,” Sen. Francis Escudero told the prosecution, noting that senators had to vote on whether to respect the Supreme Court’s temporary restraining order on Corona’s dollar accounts. “But now that it’s opened, it seems that no one is interested all of a sudden. I cannot understand that… I’m urging both sides, for the sake of the country and the public, to make use of this opportunity.”

Rep. Niel Tupas Jr., the lead House prosecutor, said his camp would rely on the report by the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC), which formed the substance of Ombudsman Morales’ previous testimony. The defense has questioned the validity of the AMLC report, which, according to Morales, showed Corona had amassed from $10 million to $12 million in 82 accounts in five banks.

Apology

Corona returned to the witness stand against the advice of his doctors and profusely apologized to senators and the public for abruptly leaving the trial on Tuesday.

He said it was not a “protest or walkout,” noting that he still had two pages remaining in his opening statement, which he failed to read despite spending three hours on the floor.

“I was in a total state of confusion,” said Corona. “Because of my confusion, I felt that I was about to throw up and I didn’t want that to happen in front of the cameras,” he said.

“I’m humbly asking for forgiveness from the entire Senate, from our people, from the prosecution and the defense. You know what we have been going through for almost six months. What we’re going through is not easy. It’s very hard to describe the pain.”

A hep-lock was still protruding from Corona’s left hand, a precaution in case he would need intravenous fluid in the course of his testimony.

“I still feel weak but I would try my best,” he said when asked by Enrile, the court’s presiding officer, if he was fit to take the stand.

Court a hearer of facts

Enrile accepted Corona’s apology and said the impeachment court was taking judicial notice of his medical condition as revealed by his doctors through the media.

Corona submitted the waiver on his assets before fielding questions from senator-judges for about two hours. The move prompted senators to halt the proceedings and tackle the matter in caucus for more than 30 minutes.

When the session resumed, Enrile told the Chief Justice that the court would only take “note of the waiver, but we can’t act on it.”

“We can’t subpoena any other person mentioned here,” he said. “We’re not supposed to produce evidence for the defense and the prosecution … This court is not a producer of evidence. It’s a hearer of facts. It receives the evidence from the prosecution and the defense. On the basis of evidence by both sides, the court will evaluate and make a decision.”

Corona first mentioned the waiver last Tuesday, authorizing all banking institutions, the Bureau of Internal Revenue, Securities and Exchange Commission, Land Registration Authority, and the AMLC to disclose to the public any information about his assets, business interests and financial connections.

The waiver also allowed the Supreme Court clerk of court, with permission from the court en banc, to produce his statements of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALNs) covering 2002 to 2011.

Useless

Quimbo said that whatever results the waiver would produce would have no use because the AMLC report had already been able to show Corona’s bank accounts.

Quimbo also said that if Corona wanted to be transparent, he should have issued the waiver much earlier when prosecutors were dealing with bank officials to get his bank records.

The waiver was also a last-ditch attempt to prolong the trial, which was scheduled to end on Friday, the prosecution said.

Quimbo said the unconditional waiver was part of the defense’s strategy, which was being “perpetually” adjusted, “in their desperate attempt to win over the overwhelming sentiment against the Chief Justice.”

Best cross is no cross

He also said the prosecution’s decision not to cross-examine the Chief Justice was a point in its favor. The prosecution was so confident about its evidence that it was willing to abandon its long hours of preparation for Corona’s appearance on the witness stand, he said.

“In litigation practice, the best cross-examination is having no cross-examination. If you can actually come out and not do a cross-examination, that’s the best situation,” he said.

The 63-year-old Corona arrived at the Senate less than an hour before the trial was to open at 2 p.m. He was taken there in an ambulance accompanied by a team of doctors from The Medical City in Pasig City, where he was brought after his appearance in the Senate on Tuesday.

Not easy situation

Before he left to testify,  Corona signed a waiver which freed The Medical City of any liability for any “foreseen and unforeseen consequences” that may arise from his decision to resume his testimony in spite of warnings by doctors he risked an “acute coronary syndrome,” or heart attack.

“My attending physicians have explained in a language and manner easily understood by me, the dangers of leaving the hospital in my condition but I insist that I be allowed to leave,” he said in the waiver released by the hospital to reporters.

Corona walked slowly toward the witness stand, his left hand clutching the shoulder of his wife Cristina with the other hand on the shoulder of an aide. During the entire week preceding his first appearance in the Senate, Corona said he barely slept. On Tuesday, he said he took the witness stand having not slept at all and having eaten very little.

“My situation was not easy. Millions of our people are watching, judging me in this trial,” he said.

Before adjourning on Friday, the court admitted the defense’s formal offer of documentary evidence consisting of 267 exhibits contained in a 74-page summary. The prosecution, which needs 16 votes in the 23-member chamber to convict Corona, also submitted additional evidence to support its allegation that Corona fabricated entries in his SALN.

Secretary Edwin Lacierda, President Aquino’s spokesperson, said the Office of the Ombudsman has a pending investigation into Corona’s assets.

“If he is convicted (by the Senate tribunal), and he is removed, the only penalty in an impeachment case is …  disqualification from public office. It does not speak of any criminal liability,” Lacierda told reporters. He said the Ombudsman could pursue the case of ill-gotten wealth depending on evidence.

“[The] presumption of ill-gotten wealth has arisen because of the discrepancy in his income,” he said. With reports from Norman Bordadora, Niña Calleja, Philippine Daily Inquirer and Maila Ager, INQUIRER.net

    Corona`s waiver is a proof of his innocence

    • filipinaskoh

      wrong! 
      The waiver is just a devilish strategy!The waiver was issued too too late. If he’s innocent he should have issued it much earlier.Anyway the waiver could still be used by the ombudsman to prove he had amassed much more than he testified

      • TGM_ERICK

        It is a chronological strategy congruent to the presentation of the persecution that the CJ reveals his   dollar deposit accounts  at the last for this is where he will be judged.  It is the apex or the climax of the trial

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_V5VHQBOCVKHSTJNHNES75BJKGA allan

      Corona offer of waiver at this time is a well plan delaying tactic. Why only now? Because he is in a very disadvatge position. He is taking  ”bahala na” stance anyway the public opinion is now heavily against me. The waiver is his last card and would rely on come-what-may position rather than not taking action at all.

    • juantamadnatamad

      If it is a proof of his innocence why did he wait until the last minute to submit it when he could have avoided his nightmare of 6 months right there?

      No! It was a last-minute ploy to gain sympathy by a pathetic accused. It obviously did not sell.

  • filipinaskoh

    Why issue the waiver just now?
    When both counsels rested their case. Monday will be the oral arguments and Tuesday will be the Judgement day.
    If the prosecutors will be using the “Waiver” they need to call all the 9 banks representative that would take about 3to 4 weeks or more, considering the testimony of PSBank and BPI representative  it took about a week. The dollar accounts had different branches of about 9 banks

    They don’t need it. Coming from the mouth of Corona he had 2.4 million$ and 80 million pesos. . As what JPE said it does not matter if its 1$ or 1 million dollar$ the question is did he declare this.  That’s about 185 million pesos- such amount cannot be considered as unimpeachable offense nor a neglect that can be corrected.

    It does not matter if you had the dollar from the day you were born or just yesterday the question is did you declare it. It does not matter if its ill-gotten or hard earned, the question is did you declare it.

    Same for peso it does not matter if its co-mingled or not- the account is under your name. You are a public official, discretion and prudence is highly necessary, you could have opted for an “OR” accounts or “AND” accounts to connote the accounts is not solely yours.

    • TGM_ERICK

      It is the fault of the IC, it could have arranged for the testimonies of the banks personnel.  It could have acted at the appeal  for subpoena of Ms. Santiago  during the first appearance of the CJ.  In fact it did a little injustice  to the CJ not to be heard in this regard.  What is a day or two of moved of sched.  But these senate jurors are lazy, daig pa istudyante sa pahinga. Imagine they spent a longer lenten leave than the ordinary workers.  THey could have reported to work at the congress at the same time the workers came back from their Holy Week vacation. And then ngayon nag-aapura. tsk tsk tsk.

      What can you say about those tongressmen who completely hid their wealth by not filing their 2010 SALN and this case against them was dsmissed inflagrante  by the ‘honorable’ Konchita karpio Moraless (KKM)

  • opinyonlangpo

    What’s the use of the waiver now? He should have brought all his authenticated, verified, notarized whatever bank records instead. Corona’s “in due time” has passed, its too late now. He should have taken the impeachment court seriously instead of acting majestic above the senators. He can just hope that he was able to fool at least 8 senators with his paawa effect.

  • Yahilawod

    “In due time” means “it’s too late in the day”.

  • johnsonabadsantos

    Why was CJ Corona not cited for contempt?  Can his action be used by future defendants
    to appeal why they should not be cited for contempt for leaving a courtroom without permission? After all, none other than the Supreme Court Justice had set the example or precedent. This is a bad example specially coming from the chief justice of the Supreme court. Filipinos deserve a better standard, a better character for a Supreme Court Chief.  His belief about non discloure of dollars because of an old law is elementary. As a Supreme Chief, he should no better than to set an example of transparency. In short, he used the law and knew he could get away with it. I wonder if Gloria Arroyo has stashed dollars as  well. After all, if the Chief Justice can get away with it, his advise may well be the norm.  I vote for conviction.

    • TGM_ERICK

       Some  senate jurors’ and  Enrile’s empathy  to the person and respect to the office  made them not cite the CJ in contempt. Good you are not one of them!

    Those accounts he admitted exists under HIS NAME and did not reflect on his SALN. This is the bottom line. The Issue. It is considered his asset because it is under his name. Declaring the waiver is useless moot and academic.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_V5VHQBOCVKHSTJNHNES75BJKGA allan

    Matalino nga si Corona. In “due time”. He knows when to admit and declare the waiver when is he cornered and take a last stand on the last hours of the trial. Sukol na siya at bahala na kung ano magiging i nterpretasyon ng tao sa waiver niya pero huli ang lahat. A very hypocrite move on his part.

    can the senate buy some time in order to act on the waiver of the cj?………. just curios

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/NNAJQQUKFAB4DITXYZPSG26FYA Martin

    Corona won in round two of his testimony.  He fought back impressively aided by a dramatic reconciliation with Basa family.  His apology, humility, unconditional waiver and reconciliation have gained some sympathy from the people which otherwise could have mostly found him 100% guilty.  It’s now a 50-50 fight.

    • Wackawackawacka

      Are you watching the same proceedings as the rest of the country?  
      Apology, humility & reconciliation does not change the facts.  If this was based on feeling and forgiveness, then he’s playing a good game.  Though too bad for him, this is all about facts, the constitution and laws of the land.  You know, the stuff he is suppose to embody.  The stuff that is the bread and butter of the Supreme Court of the land.
      He is a disgrace to the Filipino people.  Lets hope this is where the country learns that we cannot steal from the nation without rendering it a banana-republic.

  • Freddie73

    I can see that the impeachment court was overly considerate of and lenient with the CJ, he was not even reprimanded for his display of arrogance and disrespect of the impeachment court.  Even if his testimony was clearly to elicit public sympathy the presiding judge did not censure him.  The feisty senator Mirriam did not raise her voice even if it was very evident that what the CJ was saying was unresponsive of her question!  Natameme sya!  

    I do not want to hazard any guess as to what the verdict of the tribunal would be!

  • Vin4862

    Here is the biggest question is having a dollar account that was not declared in your saln because of your interpretation of the law that you don’t need to declare it is an impeachable offense? Remember there are 2 conflicting laws here the saln and foreign currency deposit act. If the prosecution really believe tha CJ really commited an impeachable they should focus on where the money came from is it illegal or not. Isa pang malaking tanong bakit di makakita ng any evidence kr witness ang prosecution para sabihin na ang perang ito ay nakaw sa gobyerno? Siguro wala talaga silang maipakita.

  • UsoUso82

    UsoUso82,
    mga Kabayan ang issue sa impeachment ay hindi incompetence but hindi ka-kulay ni Pnoy! political moves ang major motive for removing Mr. Corona sa position. Encompassing of all accussations of wrong doing, he is still a good person for standing up of what he believes correct bec he is a steward of this type of governance. if he is like a weakling, Mr. Corona has quit already, but with his good educational background, he stands for what he is responsible for, a balance democracy. Mabuhay ang pamilya ni Mr. Corona for being brave & one family.

    In 1986 as a young programmer working for a bank, I was asked to write a program to look for accounts whose name matched or partially matched a list which came from Malacanang. This was the day after Marcos was forced out. At the time I felt proud that I did my part to uncover and recover stolen funds from whatever my reports produced. Fast forward to 2012 and I am saddened that nothing much has changed. Marcos left, Cory left, Ramos left, Joseph left, Arroyo left and the looters are still around. Walang laban ang bayan sa kanila o sarili natin. I remember the quote, “I saw the enemy and he was me”. Tayo ang sarili nating mahigpit na kalaban.

    Ano ang mas importante, ang medical condition ni Corona (na fake) o ang medical condition ng bansa (na matagal ng nasa ICU)? Bakit nauuna na naman ang awa? Ang tagal-tagal na nitong impeachment na ito wala pa ring conclusion. Kung 42 days bawat impeachment process, gaano kaya katagal aabutin na i-prosecute ang lahat ng corrupt. Kung ako kay PNoy, magbibigay ako ng grace period sa lahat ng nasa gobyerno na ayusin ang SALN nila. Lahat ng mahuli na nandaya o nagtago ng pera after that e automatically dadamputin sa kulungan. E ano kung martial law na – mas mabilis ang resulta. Kung masyadong malaki na ang kalat at dumi, hindi na uubra ang tiyani – kailangan ng malaking walis o vacuum cleaner.

    Quimbo is aJOKER.  Quimbo all you need is go to the banks and see for yourself who is lying, your AMLC and the ombudsman or CJ.  Better open up your accounts as well so we will know if you declared your dollar accounts or not. Do not be hypocrites claiming a man to be guilty when you yourself and colleagues have done the same.  You are all young yet so corrupt.  At the end of the day the question is, if it is a correctible item, is it impeachable?  The answer is a big NO.

  • UsoUso82

    UsoUso82,
    Kabayan, we are good in making laws but we do not update it that is why there are so many interpretations and have so many lawyers. Politicians who initiate on making laws are poor in updating it, and one reason is our presidential type of governance. We normally have laws that does not go along with the current time, and the reason of why we have so many of them today.People who elect those in-competent politicians are also part of the problem. kaya nila-laro lang kung sino ang Presidente, dahil hawak n’ya ang bread ng bayan. We need to see ourselves and share the governance to our own circle of friends until our society will gain progress. Until we have such attitude, we never learn to govern in this short term of life.

    With Due Respect
    Omissions in SALN

    By: Artemio V. Panganiban
    Philippine Daily Inquirer8:46 pm | Saturday, February 25th, 2012
    share838 739
    Article II of the impeachment complaint charges Chief Justice Renato Corona with failure to include “some of [his] properties” in his statements of assets, liabilities and net worth. If proven, what is the penalty for such omissions? So readers ask.
    Dismissal from service. In Rabe vs Flores (May 14, 1997), the Supreme Court en banc unanimously dismissed from the service—with forfeiture of all retirement benefits and accrued leaves and with prejudice to reemployment—a Regional Trial Court (RTC) interpreter for dishonesty and for failure to disclose in her SALNs her business interest, which was “a stall in the market.”
    The Supreme Court held: “Section 8 of Republic Act No. 6713 provides that it is the ‘obligation’ of an employee to submit a sworn statement as the ‘public has a right to know’ the employee’s assets, liabilities and net worth and financial and business interests. Section 11 of the same law prescribes the criminal and administrative penalty for violation of any provision thereof. Paragraph (b) of Section 11 provides that ‘(b) Any violation hereof proven in a proper administrative proceeding shall be sufficient cause for removal or dismissal of a public official or employee, even if no criminal prosecution is instituted against him.’”
    In Concerned Taxpayer vs Doblada (June 8, 2005), an RTC sheriff was dismissed for “his failure to declare a true and detailed SALN” for several years. “There were discrepancies, inconsistencies and omissions in his SALNs, consisting of properties and business interests acquired but which were declared in his SALNs only two or more years later.”
    Accuracy of entries required. Flores vs Montemayor (June 8, 2011) reiterated the penalty of dismissal for the respondent’s unjustified failure to declare “two expensive cars” in his 2001 and 2002 SALNs. Ruled the Supreme Court:
    “Pursuant to Section 11, paragraph (b) of RA No. 6713, any violation of the law ‘proven in a proper administrative proceeding shall be sufficient cause for removal or dismissal of a public official or employee, even if no criminal prosecution is instituted against him.’ Respondent’s deliberate attempt to evade the mandatory disclosure of all assets acquired … was evident when he first claimed that the vehicles were lumped under the entry ‘Machineries/Equipment’ or still mortgaged, and later averred that these were already sold by the end of the year covered and the proceeds already spent.
    “Under this scheme, respondent would have acquired as many assets never to be declared at any time. Such act erodes the function of requiring accuracy of entries in the [SALN], which must be a true and detailed statement. It undermines the [SALN] as ‘the means to achieve the policy of accountability of all public officers and employees in the government’ through which ‘the public [is] able to monitor movement in the fortune of a public official, [as] a valid check and balance mechanism to verify undisclosed properties and wealth.’”
    In Pleyto vs PNP-CIDG (Nov. 23, 2007), “petitioner was negligent for failing … to provide a detailed list of his assets and business interests … and for relying on the family bookkeeper/accountant to fill out his SALN and in signing the same without checking or verifying the entries therein.” Here, the Supreme Court ruled that petitioner’s negligence was “only simple and not gross, in the absence of bad faith or intent to mislead or deceive on his part … his SALNs actually disclose[d] the full extent of his assets … and his wife had other business interests.” Hence, the penalty imposed was only suspension for six months, without pay, not dismissal. Since petitioner had already retired, an amount equivalent to six months’ pay was “forfeited from his retirement benefits.”
    In OCA vs Usman (Oct. 19, 2011), the Supreme Court imposed only a fine of P5,000 even if the “respondent clearly violated (Sec. 7, RA 3019 and Sec. 8, RA 6713) when he failed to file his SALN for the years 2004-2008.” It seems that failure to disclose assets, when proven to show dishonesty, is more severely penalized than the failure to file the SALN.
    Integrity, uprightness. Indeed, Ombudsman vs. Peliño (April 14, 2008) held: “Under the laws governing civil service, dishonesty is classified as a grave offense the penalty of which is dismissal from the service at the first infraction. A person aspiring to public office must observe honesty, candor and faithful compliance with the law. Nothing less is expected. This ideal standard ensures that only those of known probity, competence and integrity are called to the challenge of public service. It is understood to imply a disposition to lie, cheat, deceive, or defraud; untrustworthiness; lack of integrity; lack of honesty, probity or integrity in principle; lack of fairness and straightforwardness; disposition to defraud, deceive or betray. Dishonesty is a malevolent act that puts serious doubt upon one’s ability to perform his duties with the integrity and uprightness demanded of a public officer or employee.”
    In sum, the penalty for the failure to disclose assets is dismissal if such omissions amount to dishonesty and are not due to clerical errors done in good faith. Otherwise, it is suspension. To stress, the Supreme Court decided the above administrative cases on the basis of strict legality. For impeachment cases, the Senate, after hearing the parties, has a wider policy discretion to decide whether the respondent is still fit and qualified to remain as the highest magistrate of the land.

    The simple question the senator-judges will have before them is: Does Corona deserve to remain as chief justice? Yes or no lang yan, no ifs or buts.

    Ha, ha, they have a survey on whether Corona will be convicted or acquitted!  That’s like asking a survey in Disney website whether Justin Bieber is hot or not!  This newspaper has not been impartial throughout this whole trial.  It is evident by the number of feel good articles about Pnoy including photogenic pictures compared to the ever present articles on Corona with his down and defeated pictures.

    Oh well, so much for balance reporting.  Good luck to the Senator-Judges! I hope you come to the right decision.

    To Chief Justice Corona and family, I hope your family can rest a little easier whatever the outcome of this trial.  May your health improve and live a long, good life!

    Corona finally approves waiver to open his dollar accounts, without conditions. Good?

    No, not at all. Because he did it when both the prosecution and defense have rested their case. 
    It was meant to win sympathy from the judges. But Enrile rightly rebuffed the anti-climatic offer when he side, “We are hearers, not seekers of information.”

    Again it was a cheap gimmick. And the people and the jurors will see through it.

    One thing Corona did in his two appearances before the IC is to provide a lesson — some kind of a template — for corrupt public servants to do when under scrutiny.

    Another lesson learned from the IC — its so easy for lawyers. They will lie at the drop of the hat.

    Final lesson learned from IC. A midnight appointee for chief justice will cling and claw to the job like a leech, even to the extent of dragging his children and grandchildren to the scandal.

  • Italpino

    Ang hina naman ng kukote ng prosecution team, ng mga IC judges at pati na ang Basa family. Napadala agad sila sa drama ng the Crown. The prosecution should have asked for some more days to carefully examine the movements of his bank accounts at hindi napaikot agad sa kanyang bank account declaration. They should have asked for more days before the verdict would be given so that they can conduct further investigations if the declaration really corresponds to the bank account movements. Given that today is friday and banks are closed on saturdays and sunday and the final decision will be handed out on tuesday, then there is no time to verify what he said. And also the Basa family, kaunting lapit lang, bumigay na agad, after being screwed for years. May mga yakapan pa at patak ng luha. Magaling ang director ng “comedy”. The only thing for sure if the Crown will be acquited, he will have give a big laugh and a dirty finger to everybody and will say to his cohorts and business clients sa SC…Hey I’m acquited…Business as usual. I really feel very sorry for all the concerned Filipinos because all will be screwed as usual by this Crown. All I can do is just wish that I am wrong.

      I would like to remind you that Atty. Bautista kept objecting that Mr.Corona’s opening statement was “all HEARSAY, IRRELEVANT, IMMATERIAL”…testimonies of such kind (NOT backed up by documentary evidences as clearly asked by Peter Cayetano rarely held strong grounds in court arguments)…sa tingin ng Prosecution ay mahina ang mga pahayag ni CJ…

      ANALYSIS: since Mr.Corona first appearance in the impeachment court, the STRATEGY of the Defense Panel is to appeal to the EMOTIONS of the senator-judges and the public…they cannot produce HARD documentary evidences that will require substantial counter-offering of solid evidences, they switched tactics…BLUNDER: the defense might forgot that the FINAL verdict will come from the judges, and NOT from a jury (these are lawyers where logical reasonings usually rule over emotions).sabagay, wala ka na maibigay na malakas na ebidensya…eh mag-drama ka na lang…PWE!

    WHY it took you so long to open your USD accounts, Mr. Corona?  I doubted the TIMING of your decision to open up…(ANG TAGAL NAMAN BAGO NINYO PAYAGANG IPAKITA ANG LAMAN NG BULSA NINYO?)
    Now, the Pandora’s Box is opened…both the Prosecution
    and Defense are not willing to use it…(As Mr.Enrile pointed out clearly that
    it is not the burden of the impeachment court to gather documentary evidences
    or summon witnesses, but to hear only facts presented to the court)…

    MY OBSERVATION:this trial won’t reach its 42nd session today, should Mr. Corona had appeared and testified at an earlier time to sign a waiver for his USD bank deposits…MY INSTINCTS KEPT BOTHERING ME…WHY ONLY NOW? 
     
    Any investigator would know the basics…delays are disastrous in gathering evidences…TRUTHS may be DILUTED through passing of TIME….because of this “very lengthy DELAYS”…I cannot help but to cast doubts…did the CJ able to systematically “clean the house” before the signing of his waiver?
    WHY ONLY NOW? a moral question that strike to the heart of this issue …this question stays in my mind…IS THE CJ MORALLY FIT TO STAY IN OFFICE?

  • SeanPhilippe

    The waiver is being requested because the defense never admitted in the impeachment court that CJ Corona has dollar bank accounts.

    Only when Ombudsman Carpio-Morales testified about the AMLC documents did CJ Corona confirmed he has 4 dollar accounts.

    That is all what the prosecution wanted and to connect these dollar accounts to his non-disclosure of assets in his SALN.

    To discuss further his dollar accounts is a futile exercise because issues of ill-gotten wealth will only be dismiss by the impeachment court.

    In short, CJ’s own testimony put the last nail in his coffin.

    Senator Escudero was disappointed with the Prosecution for showing lack of interest for the waiver after waiting for a long time. Of course, the Prosecution would ignore the waiver because if they do so otherwise, the court will find out that Ombudsman Morales was totally wrong when she said CJ Corona has 10-12 million dollars in different bank accounts, thereby weakening the testimony of Carpio Morales. Why would Prosecution do that ?

    • GOPHILIPPINESGO

       It was clearly the defense’ shortcoming. If they wanted to prove that the AMLC report was false they should have called the bank managers. But the defense did not. Thus, the AMLC report remains on record as evidence because there is presumption of regularity in its face.

    The prosecution decided not to investigate further because Corona already admitted that he has 2.4 M USD and around 80 million pesos that were not declared in his SALN. That’s the whole principle about the case, does he have or or none at all. It’s not a issue of proving how much did he have. Period.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YRHGKTVYNMTIBFJMBHHHHR7GNM Andy

    Chief Justice Corona admitted he has $2.4 million and P80 million in banks deposits .He only declared P3.5 million in investments and cash in his 2010 statement of assets, liabilities, and net worth (SALN).
    Therefore, he lied in his SALN.

      You got a point there. So now , let’s see how many of the “Impeachable” government office holder are clean and lily white. Let’s start with Drillon! As an “aid-to-legislation” at least this impeachment circus should result in a law that “Impeachable” office holder are not covered by the Foreign Bank Account secrecy provision.

    • turkak

      you are watching a different impeachment trial. I would advise you watch the replay and learn a lot. Drilon came up with powerpoint but it became powerless, he got nothing against Corona last Friday.

      The biggest loser last Friday was Senator pangilinan , he was flatly rebuffed by the Chief Justice for arguing with a wrong information and pretended to have 1 last question to cushion the impact of the humiliation but ended with no last question on his note.

      Escudero was disappointed with the prosecution for lack of interest in the waiver the Chief Justice submitted. This is so understandable on the part of the prosecution, scrutinizing the bank records of Corona by his waiver will only prove Ombudsman is lying with her accusation of 10-12 million dollar accounts of Corona on different banks.

      Noticeably, Senator Allan Cayetano was the happiest person in the court room, other than the basas and the Coronas who reconciliated, when he learned that CJ forwarded the waiver to the court, the critical Cayetano turned to be an ally of Corona, he was  smiling visibly for every answer the CJ tossed to his questions. Same way with Jingoy, he was able to convince CJ Corona to discussed more on the accurate balance of both accounts of CJ, dollars and peso accounts. The way Chief Justice handled the Senators it seems everybody was convinced except for Drilon with his powerless powerpoint presentation.

    The “director” decided to cut the first segment of Corona’s testimony due to lousy acting.  “C-U-T!” (Now the Chief Justice of the Republic of the Philippines wishes to be excused), he shouted.  Roy congratulated the actor, nonetheless.

    Three days of intense (ICU) rehearsal made little improvements.  The 2nd act was still a dismal performance.

    I was about to give credit to the actor at the beginning of the scene for average acting by pulling a pity-me and meek-as-a-lamb stunt but then again he failed or perhaps forgot his lines when Sen Pangilinan was on the podium.  The actor was back again to his old way, and looked as healthy as he was last Monday.  Adrenalin rush?

  • GOPHILIPPINESGO

    The waiver was too late renato. your lawyer serafin already said as early as last week that you will be the last witness for the defense.

    • turkak

      no it is not . according to Senator Escudero, he’s so disgusted with the prosecution why not scrutinize the  bank records of CJ Corona with the waiver.

      Of course, the prosecution will not do that because it will only weaken the testimony of Ombudsman Morales if they found out that actual dollar accounts of CJ Corona is way below the 10-12 million dollars accusation of Morales. Lumalabas ngayon sa argumento nila na ayaw nila na sa katotohanan kasi masisira si Carpio Morales pag tumestify ang mga bank managers ng banko. Kayo na rin ang maysabi kahit late malaman lang ang katotohanan pero ngayon sino ang takot sa katotohanan nandyan na ang waiver ?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_W4RTNUSX3BQCWCDQAA562BFC5I Lito G

        Obviously Senatong Escudero is sleeping during the trial. JPE already said that the bank account amount is irrelevant. What matter is do they exist or not. Now that everybody knows that at least 2 accounts exist then opening the account is irrelevant. If you have further argument, ask JPE.

    There is a legal principle that an old law is amended or repealed by a newer law which is inconsistent or incongruent with the old law.

    In this case, the absolute secrecy of dollar deposits that corona is relying on is the old law as it is a martial law era law. therefore, the SALN law, which is the newer law is more applicable. On top of this, the SALN law is based on the 1987 constitution, which in itself expressly mandates disclosure of all assets of govt personnel as provided by law, which is the SALN law.

    Corona is so lame. Every law student knows this principle.

    • turkak

         False, if you watched it, escudero asked first the defense. the defense said they will not call the bank managers. this is perfectly consistent with what serafin said since last week that corona is their last witness. that is why corona wanted the senators to be the one to call the managers.hahaha! but of course, JPE rightly ruled this can not be.

      • turkak

        Senator Escudero didn’t say he is disgusted with the defense. Since the very start, the prosecution is clamoring for the opening of the dollar accounts of Corona, now that the waiver is hereby presented the Prosecution backtracked and lost interest, why ? of course, scrutinizing the dollar accounts will only result to weaken the accusation of Ombudsman 10-12 million dollars of CJ Corona, why would prosecution do that ? now who is really interested to know the truth on that dollar accounts, it is never too late to know the truth but the prosecution doesn’t seems to be interested to the truth anymore !!!

        What truth? There is only one truth between the AMLAC report and the assertion of Corona. The former is an official document that can be used in a Court of Law and carries the presumption of regularity – meaning, if not accordingly debunked, can be used for conviction. While the latter is a self serving statement that has no probative value. Corona has the burden to disprove the AMLAC report and not the prosecution or the Impeachment Court. The waiver is for the consumption of the Filipino People, in the hope that Senator judges who will vote for conviction will not be re-elected by people who who will sympathize with Corona.

    For a chief justice to interpret laws that way, shows that he is not competent to be the final arbiter of the laws of our land. For him not to know basic accounting principles is also a sham as he is supposed to have worked in SGV as a senior officer. The reason he had all these accounts in his name was because he just feels so arrogant and untouchable in his position as CJ that he never expected that it would finally hit the fan. How in the world can you amass so much wealth? Do the math, for him to have saved that much even with interest that means he would need to have saved Php200,000 a month for 42 years. Impossible, he thinks everyone is so dumb not to see this.

    The Impeachment Court ruled per Enrile. it does not matter kung $1 lang ang laman ng account the issue is nakalagay ba sa SALN. Corona admitted he has 4 accounts left open with an estimate balance of $2.4 million. What else is there to prove or argue about? Case closed!

    Before the Ombudsman and Corona’s waiver the chief justice is saying he has no $$$ and in due time he will prove it that is why there was an argument. The chief justice already admitted that he has $2.4 million !!! which is not in his SALN. The chief justice now is saying he does not know what is an asset and what is a liability, the guy from Harvard and other expensive schools with honors at times who works with the banks does not know this?

    To convict a public officer by way of impeachment, the prosecutor does not have to have a quantum of “proof beyond reasonable doubt” all that is needed is “substantial evidence.  In coronas case, he already admitted owning $2.4 M and P80M that were not reported in his SALN.  These unreported assets are already “substantial evidences” against corona…. Article 2 of the artices of impeachment has already been proven… This plus his other real estate issues will ensure a conviction…

    “protective custody” of a fugitive Korean national arrested four years
    ago by the Bureau of Immigration.

    According to BI intelligence chief and spokesperson, Atty. Antonette
    Bucasas-Mangrobang, said the suspect, Ma Yoon Sik, was arrested by BI
    intelligence operatives in 2008 in Cavite province on the request of the
    Korean Embassy.

    We should have a chief justice who knows the law, implements it right and most of all  decides by evidences and not by emotions… I personally don’t trust CJ after hearing all of these from him… he said before his trial “walang kakaba-kaba” yet he made an excuse about being nervous and sick afterwards….he declared in his SALN way low compared to what he owns…..think of himself as a simple living and honest guy…..Sorry CJ but what you have shown is not a trait and personality of a Chief Justice. In my own opinion there will one out there that could replace you and really act and behave as a Chief Justice of this country….

  • Karabukov

    I am as disappointed as Senator Escudero. The prosecution needed to at least ask the obligatory pro forma questions to obtain categorical answers from the impeached chief justice and thereby nail their case. Even though I am now confident of a guilty verdict a surprise is still a possibility. If you want to win, you seal against all possibility of losing. You simply cannot count your chickens before the eggs are hatched. If they win, it’s not because they made the most of a good case.

    Ominous signs. After Corona’s walkout last Tuesday, Enrile had to muster extraordinary patience to avoid blowing his top. But the 88-year-old JPE had the wisdom and alertness to order the lockdown of all entrances and exits. Corona failed to leave and was stopped by Sergeant-at-Arms Balajadia and his staff.

    The jurors called a senators-only caucus, and one can only imagine the agitation of everyone, even the so-called neutral senators. During the caucus only Senators Miriam Santiago and Joker Arroyo did not attend. They were seen in their judges seats in the plenary talking to each other. Miriam and Joker were generally supportive of Corona, but after the shocking Corona walkout they too were ready to thrown in the towel.

    Cuevas was overheard muttering something and was very upset. He was clearly heard from an open microphone saying, “tira kasi kayo ng tira!” The old man must have been addressing somebody from the Corona team

    In view of all these developments and ominous signs, I just revised my prediction on the impeachment results: 23-0. Now, if Enrile opts to abstain as presiding officer and decide to vote only in case of a tie, it will be 22-0-1 (22 for conviction, 0 for acquittal and 1 abstention by Enrile).

    In late breaking developments:

    The prosecutors accidentally found $1 under the seat of a luxury SUV that the Chief Justice had rented. Spokesman, Rep. Kimbo, announced to the press that it was not declared in the CJ’s SALN, and according to the impeachment rules, everything must be declared.

    Kimbo declared that the CJ must be found GUILTY. Senator Koko agrees because the CJ grows dollar accounts like bacteria.

    The Police, upon investigation have discovered that several foreigners previously rented the same SUV to take them to the airport.  The driver of the SUV is still being held for further investigation. Police spokesman, Col. (name withheld) confirms the findings but officially denies that a group of foreigners have rented the SUV.

    Palace spokesman announced that the CJ has been hiding dollars.

    • isalexus

      One of the foreigner was said to be a little old woman whose identity was lost to the rental company agent. Unfortunately, no rental document was found on file. Lacierda and Valte were quick to report that although the mysterious lady is unidentified– they are sure she is a foreigner because of the nasal twang when she spoke.

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

        The little old woman was later identified by Cong. Umali as the one who handed him a brown envelope.  The same envelope that was left at the gate of another congressman. It was also the same envelope that was anonymously given to a very abled Harvey K.

        Meanwhile Cong. Banal has admitted to being the one who gave the brown envelope to Tupas. He however denied that it was his sister from Deutsche Bank who left it at his gate.  Furthermore, Cong Banal, did not deny that his sister is a big woman.

        Lacierda and Valte denied any knowledge about their jobs.

    Like any theater or movie production, timing is everything. The timing of the reconciliation is perfect if one sees it as a genuine effort to mend fences despite years of bitter legal battles about wealth/money. On the other side of the coin, I share the opinion of others that the waiver is a bit too late and has a negligible bearing on the contested issues. Admission of having more than $ 2 million on foreign currency and not including them on his SALN is tantamount to being dishonest considering Corona as the top dog in the magistrate. That alone in my opinion opens up a lot more questions about his integrity.  What else is he dishonest about or what else did he lie about?  As a result, at this juncture, he has lost the trust of the people. (I get this conclusion from what I hear in the barbershop, around the tricycle and jeepney parking lots, embornal, coffee shops, and what I read from the newspapers, blog sites, social media sites, etc.)  Guessing our senators’s votes is as easy as eating a soup sandwich and the monkey wrench brought by the timing of the upcoming elections doesn’t make it any easier.

  • McOlans

    Now, at last, Corona was forced to open his accounts to the public.  No one is taking the challenge?
    In the name of the people, I believe that the Office of the Ombudsman must initiate the opening of Corona’s $ and Peso accounts to see in detail the SOURCES AND APPLICATION OF FUNDS to prove or disprove that accumulated the same honestly and legally, as he proclaimed under oath.  Besides he accused the Ombudsman of lying during her testimony.  This way the people will know who is telling the truth.
    Why in detail?  These will show THE DATES significant DEPOSITS and WITHDRAWALS compared with the proximity of national events, like, but not limited to the travels of the First Family to China during the NBN fiasco.  Question: Was Corona used as depository of some “over-price”/bukol from this event or other events?  Nagtatanong lang po!  Where did Corona get these significant deposits?
    Another fact the CJ has to explain is:  The defense presented a witness that he sold two properties in 2010 amounting to P26M (P18M+P8M), yet his cash and investments in his 2010 SALN is only P3M+.
    If he mis-declared $2.4M and P80M his SALNs, as he stated, the re-construction of his SOURCES AND APPLICATION OF FUNDS will reconcile his statement and the TRUTH and nothing but….

     Chief Justice Renato Corona just showed the Filipino nation and the
    world his UNFITNESS for the job – MENTALLY and PHYSICALLY. We need a new
    chief justice who is honest and smarter, with a good family relationship
    background, strong moral character, healthy physical condition and free
    from political biases. Corona is full of hatred – personal and political
    – and now has some attachments and favors to the law firms of Serafin
    Cuevas and his battery of top-notch lawyers from his impeachment defense
    team who “voluntarily” helped him.

  • mikerocky

    If indeed lawyers are liars, CJ Corona deserves his post as chief lier in this country.

    Consider the theory of co-minglng of funds, both peso and dollar. In itself, it could be plausible, but if your children already has families of thier own and expenditures, lifestyles and educatons to pursue for the grandkids, unless they are swimming in money this is irregular and highly unlikely. Notice that he deliberately fail to mention how this co-mingled funds’ interest is distributed pro rate with the co-minglers. And no senator asked for they do not believe the same.

    Consider the Confidential Document from the OMBUDSMAN,I personally am a recipient of a lot of documents from said office regarding cases I filed and never received a Notice Requiring explanation within 72 hours that is not open and to be signed on the cover letter itself. This is to ensure compliance frm the date of receipt.

    Consider his deliberately false interpretation of the Foreign currencies act, feigning good faith, this could be accepted if the one offering it is not a lawyer and has no legal expertise wharsoever.But he is a CJ for crying out loud! this arrogant reasoning betrays his character.

    His voluntary submission of unconditional waiver is an obvious ploy to consider him to be in good faith. But what would further investigation do. the burden is on him to disproce the AMLAC report for this cannot bu debunked by the mere denial of the respondent, as well as a recitation of conspiracy theories.

    I am blessed to be a non-lawyer, but in my side of the fence, you are guilty as sin, mr. respondent. Burn baby burn!

    Is it possible to publish in the newspapers those accounts so the public will know? Does the media have access to them. We want to know the truth, as tax payers, we pay his salary.

    • isalexus

      Those so called bank accounts and amounts were proudly released by Morales. She also added them up to amount to somewhere like $12M in 88 bank account. What she failed to recognized was- they are just “rolled-over” term deposits– meaning that she and her trusted CPA counted the same money over and over again which “miraculously” was increasing over time because of compounding interest.

      • athenapallas

        I don’t think they are that stupid not to have realized what you are saying – they counted the same money over and over again. all transactions are recorded with corresponding date and amount and other pertinent details. those people are thorough and professionals and they sure do know their craft.

      • bechay64

        I believe in what you said. She is not a moron not to realize what was on those how many sheets of documents. It seems that there really was a very clear intent to fool us, the ordinary people. Nakapagpagawa ka pa nga ng power point presentation, tapos hindi mo alam ang content nito or kung ano ang ibig sabihin ng documents that you were presenting? Que horror! In the private companies pwede ba ito? You can not be presenting something na ikaw mismo, hindi mo naiintindihan. Ang kalabasan mo kasi noon pag tinanong ka at hungkag ang sagot mo e inutil di ba? Napagalitan ka pa ng mga incorporators ng companya mo, because youare wasting your time and thier time. Mantakin mo how many hours ang naubos sa pag gawa ng power point presentation at nung nag pressent ka pa na hungkag? Then how about the time spent by all those senators, etc? Multiply those hours to the money being spent for each. Magkanoa ng naubos sa kaban? Para sabihin mo lang na ibinigay kasi sa iyo ung document na un? Kalorkey kau…

         The presentation was about $$$ transactional value under Corona’s account. You know what that means? Maybe it was you who didn’t understand.

      • pinklace88

        well do you really believe in Corona’s lies? how would you dispute the expertise of COA & brilliant accountants all combined? this is their job for God’s sake, and you trust the expetise of Corona, one who claims not even knowing the difference between assets & liabilities?
        of course he knows right? for what he had occupied a top position in the SGV?? but when he uttered he is not an accountant when asked why he did not declare the co mingled funds as liabilities.. there you go again.. conflicting answers, he contradicts himself depending on the need..
        his explanation on the SALN is the most outrageous lie even the best defense will not be able to acquit him (well… if the judges are honest, that is), if he is not a lawyer, i should say i would him the benefit of an honest mistake, but indeed he is not just an ordinary lawyer, the highest magistrate even and you accept his line of reasoning???

  • GKid

    Forget about the wavier, the Congress needs to amend or repel the Foreign Currency Deposit Act and its Bank Secrecy Provision. At the very least, no member of government should be able to hide behind it. If the President and the people are sincere about rooting out corruption then we should immediately act on this. CJ Corona should only be the beginning since removing one man will not solve the problem of corruption. All members of the government, from the janitor to the President, needs to reveal their bank records and declare truthfully their SALN.

    It’s too late already and it’s a ploy. The Senate and Congress would not catch that gambit because they will be put in embarrassing position. If they accept the waiver, the public would also want the politician they same. So, it’s like putting a nail of their coffins. . “Utakan lang yang”  
    Anyway Corona had already admitted that he had dollars and others account that he did not disclose because he had his own interpretation of the law. . How dangerous this man would be. .

    It’s now a precedence and will become a practice that all government employees who plunder the government will now put their money in dollar account to protect these from the public. . Mabuhay ang mga kurakot meron na tayong pagtatagoang. .

    According to Certified Liar TJ Corona, the money of the Basa Guidote Corp. was in his personal bank account for convenience & safe keeping. 

    In 2003 or 2004 he borrowed 10 Million pesos from the Basa Guidote Corp, to pay for his condominium units all over metro manila, meaning he withdrew 10 Million pesos in his personal bank account. 

    And as per the certified liar he paid that amount full in cash & check to wife Cristina, which she regularly deposit back to TJ Corona’s personal bank account because that’s where the Basa Guidote money is, intact and full according to the certified liar TJ Corona.

    Let’s set aside your own conviction and for now leave the judgment on the judgment day.

    Let’s focus on what Corona is trying to say.  Is there something like ‘simple life and hardworking’?  Would you be successful in life?

    I say, I think so, I say, yah it’s possible.  Corona rose himself to the top and have earned a bit of money, that is not luck, that is self-determination and an intelligent investor.

    I think I admire Corona for having such a wonderful family and great people around him, I think people should recognize Corona as one of the hardworking successful person of the Philippines. 

    And put it this way, $ 2.4 M is not a lot  if Corona decides to retire somewhere in the US or Canada, he still need to stay and live a simple life considering he held one of the top positions in the country.

     I think people should step forward now and be recognized, filipinos should start looking after one another and stop bashing each other.  Hey, you guys are left behind.  Way, way behind.  So get over it and do something.

    CJ Corona you are the accused. Answer all the charges against you. You have no right to make any conditions to your accusers or prosecutors. Your answers in your testimonty just confirms you are a liar. You cannot ask the prosecutors a waiver simply because they are not the accused as you are asking. My goodness, Chief Justice Corona…you are the accused, answer the charges against you if you are not lying. But I believe you will be IMPEACH and out of your job.

        Ganito iyon.  Late 60′s nagsimula siyang mag-ipon.  Pero sinimulan lang maihulog noong 1974 na may batas nanagpapahintulot sa  mga bangkong tumanggap ng foreign currencies.  Kaya 1974 siya nakapagbukas ng account pero inipon-ipon niya iyon late 60′s pa.

  • jayoliver

    The mere fact that Corona does not understand the real intent of the SALN law, which is to check whether the official is not enriching himself in public office, is proof enough that he does not deserve to stay a minute longer in his lofty position.  The position calls for a legal heavyweight not a buffoon. 

    Furthermore,  his decision making process as was shown when he decided not to include morales and carpio into the senate electoral tribunal and his reducing the retirement pay of morales which was based on personal grudges and animosity rather than on competencies and what is right is not the decision making process expected of a chief magistrate but rather that of a thug or the head of gangster organization.

    “His wife, Maria Cristina Roco Corona, was appointed by fOrmer F a k e President Arroyo to the Board of John Hay Management Corporation. (She later became president and COO.) She was one of those who signed a paid newspaper advertisement supporting Former F A K E President Arroyo in early 2008 who was then besieged with allegations that she approved an overpriced national broadband deal knowing that the project was tainted by bribery.”

    These acts allegedly are the reasons why Corona, in 19 major cases against the Arroyo admin, voted for it. Among the 19 were: the grant of territory to Moro separatists, the Hello Garci tapes, and the ZTE scam (for which Mrs. Corona advertised support for the for the Former F a k e President ArroYo).

    First, UST requires a dissertation. Dissertation writing takes all of 15 units spread out in four
    courses.Second, only students who complete their doctorate degrees in five years are qualified to graduate with honors: “A student who has overstayed beyond the residency limit…will also be disqualified to graduate with honors.”Corona does not have a dissertation. Neither did he fulfill the five-year residency requirement.

    When the start of this impeachment I said yes go on Mr. President but during the process I saw how the Administration manipulate and used other branches just to get back to CJ no matter how the law says Pnoy what him out. Kya niuyang gawin sa mataas na tao mas lalo niyang gagawin yan sa mahihirap na tao lalo na ang mga nasasakupan ng HLI. Noon sinasabi nila lumagda sa waiver now lumagda hindi na raw kailangan dahil tama ang reports ng AMLC. Dito mo makikita na talagang ang gusto lang ay maalis kaya gumagawa ng gma paraan nariyan na ang 45 properties, 82 accounts 12 Mi USD etc, pero lahat sablay. Hindi nila kayang sagutin ang hamon na gumawa din sila ng waiver lalo na sa Drillon na hindi lang 10 USD ang pera na kinita sa Iliilo airport.

    Ala eh, too late in the day naman ang pag-volunteer niya ng pagbigay ng waiver naman eh! Sa mga unang linggo pa lang ng impeachment trial na kung saan tinalakay na agad ng prosecution ang Article  2 (very good move on their part),  hininihingi na sa kanya ang waiver na maglalahad dapat ng lahat ng deposits niya pero sagot niya “in due time”. Natapos at natapos na lahat ng due time ng ibang tao pati ng kay tehot, victorts, missaya, zurich, Kristian, etc., sa kanya wala pa rin kung kelan talaga ang due time niya. Ngayong nasa final stages na ng trial at idineklara na ng prescution na di na sila mag-pepresent ng mga additional witnesses at di na sila magko-cross exam dahil ang depensa iwinaive din nila ang direct examination rights nila. So nag-rule si JPE na wala ng dapat na mga dagdag na testimonies and evidences since ang parehong panig ay nag-rest na ng kanilang mga kaso. At ang pinakaimportante sa lahat: Umamin na niya na may limpak-limpak na dolyares (US$ 2.4M) at nakakalulang P80M siya bakit pa nga naman kakalkalin pa ang mga deposito sa mga bangko niya tatagal pa ang kaso?  

    Now na siguro ang sinasabi niyang in due time, because come Monday or Tuesday next week, perhaps he will pay his dues for what he has done to the justice system of this country when the Impeachment Court renders it’s verdict. At least isa lang ang medyo comforting thought (?) sa panig ni  Corona. He will be in this country’s history books forever for being  the 1st CJ to be impeached and removed from office if a guilty verdict is rendered. Let’s all pray that God bless this country and He guides & enlightens the impeachment court this coming week that justice be granted not only for CJ Corona but most of all for this country as well, amen.

    • thadeothadeo

      It’s not too late in the day for accountability and transparency if our elected officials have nothing to hide.  Pork barrels are the country’s chief source of corruption, and the S.O.P. (30% of skimmed from contractors and suppliers are the congressmen’s motivation in running for office).  

      Graft and corruption must be exposed by government officials, elected or appointed  volunteering to bare their bank accounts and correct SALN’, or be required by tougher laws.

      Now na.But almost all of them are evading the issue by the convenient excuse that they are the ones being impeached.

      What a bunch of hypocrites.  They have been taunting the CJ even before the start and all throughout the process.  And when the CJ challenged them to do the same, they shirked.  Now that he has waived his rights to secrecy, these hypocrites would not use them.

      Too many excuses.  Never running out of excuses.  What else is their excuse now?

    “Darkness cannot remove darkness, only light can do that.  Hate cannot remove hate, only love can do that…”  Martin Luther King

    The waiver is the light for transparency so that all government officials must now bare their assets and bank accounts if we want to reveal the darkest secrets of our elected officials.  He/she who prefers to hide their misdeeds and cover up for their loot (in pork barrel) must lead the way in volunteering their hidden wealth instead of making acusations.

    The Basa’s and the Corona’s were intrigued by the Yellow media and PNoy’s vindictiveness that fanned the hatred between families, but Baby Nebrida (who paved the way for their reconciliation) said the Holy Spirit was upon them thus paving the way for forgiveness and love.

  • BillyGregory

    The waiver is not proof that what he said regarding his peso and dollar accounts are all true.  It is just that–a waiver allowing access to his bank accounts.

    It was the job of the defense panel, however, to bring documentary evidence to disprove the accusations hurled against CJ Corona.  Why didn’t it bring bank records of transactions from all of Corona’s accounts, peso and foreign, instead? Or even just the statements of accounts detailing, at the least, the current balances of these accounts?

    The defense need not even go to the bank to obtain records.  Banks regularly send clients updates of their accounts and I am sure Corona had them all kept safe.

    I honestly and strongly believe the waiver was just for show.

  • nalasnaville

    according to kasabihan ” aanhin pa ang kabayo kung patay na ang damo” este ” AANHIN NA ANG DAMO KUNG PATAY NA ANG KABAYO” pala. yan ang nangyari sa waiver ni corona. any way kailangan yan nang ombudsman para malaman talaga kung yong mga pera na yan ay galing sa kaban nang bayan o galing sa pangongotong sa mga malalaking isda gaya ni lucio tan.. kailangan talagang ma CONVICT si corona para magiging huwaran na kahit gaano man kataas ang iyong posisyon ay magingibabaw pa rin batas. yong mga ginawa nya sa impeachment court, na pambabastos, ay nagpapahiwatig na siya ay hindi karapatdapat sa kanyang pwesto. final verdict: GUILTY!!!
               GUILTY!!!
               GUILTY!!!  

  • nes911

    the waiver is useless at this point in time. it was all a put-up. palabas lang in other words. corona is guilty beyond reasonable doubt. he even admitted that he had so much cash and assets that he did not list in his saln. the ombudsman should file now the cases against him for his unexplained wealth. a court employee was dismissed from his job because he failed to declare his stall in a market. in his saln…and why would corona be exempted from this supreme court ruling? in coronas case…he did not declare his millions in cash and assets.

  • your_honors

    WHY THE SENATE SHOULD ACQUIT CORONA

     

    Simpleng simple lang naman yan e, maliwanag pa sa umaga.

     

    1. Ang pandaraya at pagtago ng
    yaman, ok lang naman sa mga Pinoy. Kung nagawa ng CJ, e ginagawa naman ng
    karamihan sa gobyerno. ACQUIT NYO NA SI CORONA!

     

    2.  Dahil sa mataas ang posisyon ng CJ, mas may
    karapatan ang CJ na hindi sumunod at lumusot sa batas ng bayan, Para ano pa ang pagiging CJ nya, di ba? Ugaling Pinoy yan
    noh ! ACQUIT NYO NA SI CORONA!

     

    3. Basta nagsabi ng “I am
    Sorry “, ok na yun. Abswelto na.  No
    harm done.  Makakalimutan din yan ng
    bayan. Kita mo mga Marcos, andyan pa rin. Pati si Erap, kakandidato pa uli. KAYA
    ACQUIT NYO NA SI CORONA!

     

    4. Tinatanggap naman ng Pilipino
    ang  bulok na standard ng honesty and
    integrity sa gobyerno.  May governor na
    illegal logger, may pulis na drug pusher, may mayor na fixer.  Di gaya sa
    private companies, pag may mali
    kang ginawa, tanggal ka agad sa trabaho. 
    Kaya wag sisihin si CJ. Ganyan ang kalakaran sa gobyerno. ACQUIT NYO NA
    SI CORONA!

     

    5. Ang Pinoy wala ng pagmamahal
    at malasakit sa bayan yan. Lagi nasa isip kung ano lang ang pakinabang sa
    gobyerno.  Sa kapwa pinoy nga mismo
    galing ang corruption at paglalamang sa kapwa. 
    Sabi nga ng tatay ko pag may kailangan ka sa gobyerno, “maglagay ka
    na lang” para bumilis.  Kaya yan ang
    napapala natin.   So wag sisihin si CJ. BIKTIMA LANG SIYA NG
    SISTEMA. ACQUIT NYO NA SI CORONA!

     

    6. Madali naman makalimot ang Pinoy.  Sabi dati, si PNoy ang dapat para malinis ang
    gobyerno at makulong mga magnanakaw.  Ang
    iniisip lang ngayon ng pinoy gumaan lang sariling buhay nya, makinabing kung
    hindi laging magprotesta.  Kaya hindi
    magbabago Pinas kaya ACQUIT NYO NA SI CORONA!

     

    7.  Hindi naman
    gagaang buhay ng mahirap dyan!  Di ba yan
    ang laging dahilan?  Kaya nga madaling
    gamitin at magpagamit ang mahihirap. 
    Kita mo sa bawat eleksyon, saan galing ang flying voters.  so ACQUIT NYO NA SI CORONA!

     

    Hintayin na lang natin ang susunod na eleksyon. At kita nyo
    kung sino and uupo sa gobyerno. 
    Binebenta naman ang boto.  Yung
    nag-iisip na botante, di naman boboto. 
    Magaling lang mag-reklamo.  E sino
    ba ang may kasalan, si CJ?  KAYA ACQUIT
    NYO NA SI CORONA!

     

    So ano sa tingin nyo mga kabayan???  Tama ba ako?

     

    CASE DISMISSED !!!

  • 189mlq

    Do not fall for the Corona family’s show of reconciling with the Basa family. That, too, was planned and schemed  to make a difference in how they have been conceived to be. They will show, say, and do anything for the Chief Justice to be acquitted. I did not see it as an act coming from their hearts. Once the Corona gets acquitted, we will have a vengeful, untruthful, scheming, deceptive Supreme Court Chief Justice. Mark my word…he will use his power to exact revenge on the people who tried to remove him from power, and that includes the Basa family. It is a must to take him out.

    • thadeothadeo

      Guess who is arrogant with power to exact revenge?  This impeachment has proven who is the powerful vindictive person in the Philippines.  Your sentence reads”…will use his power to exact revenge…”  A futurist tense. 

       PNoy  has been doing that.

      • 189mlq

         I believe in Pnoy’s stand that a great hindrance to our country’s progress is the problem of graft and corruption. I believe, too, that you have to clean up the government, not from the grass roots, but from the top. If you do not believe these , then I will understand why you have responded that way.

  • elmersvd

    His apology to the Impeachment Court is a laudable gesture on his part. It suggest that the Chief Justice is acknowledging the authority of the Senate sitting as an Impeachment Court as mandated by the Constitution.

    It doesn’t absolve him though from any culpability if proven guilty by the Impeachment Court but what it does is that it gives the public an impression of the authority of the Impeachment Court and its power to check and balance any abuse that is excercised by government officials.

    The only thing that we have to wait for is the decision of the Impeachment Court and whether the Supreme Court would acknowledge its decision if the Chief Justice is acquitted or more importantly if he is convicted.

  • thadeothadeo

    If Corona will be convicted, (but not removed), at least he has exposed the following:

    1.  The touted anti-corruption drive of this administration is not sincere, targetting only the enemies, not the congressmen whose SOP (20 to 30% of contractors’s and supplier’s project) are the main source of graft and corruption.

    2.  There is a threat to the checks and balances of the three co-equal branch of government by way of intimidating impeachable officials.

    3.  That the SALN provisions of the Constitution does not provide for the manner of filing the SALN’s, and that there are loopholes that any government official can hide his loot.

    4.  That Conchita was lying and was used by the president to persecute his enemies.

    5.  That Pres. BS Aquino’s mind is not normal for his unusual obsession to exact his vengeance against Corona by using all the resources of the government within his power.

    • Marx Louis Wang

       Convicted but not removed??? Pa’no yon?? labo mo bok!

      • thadeothadeo

        The correct filing of SALN is a legal question that the Senate is incompetent nor not mandated to rule or to resolve.  Only the Judiciary can (the Supreme Court) do the interpretation of the law as is provided by the Constitution.  The Senate can pronounce Corona may be guilty of not filing the correct SALN but will remand the case to the judiciary or proper courts for that.  The Senate can only remove by way of impeachment, and they will vote for that.  The Senators may opine that CJ may have not filed his SALN correctly, and the legal question would be :  Is this an impeachable offense?  If it is not, then he will stay as CJ.

        JPE has voiced out his opinion by asking Cong. Barzaga if he thinks incorrect filing is a high crime, graft, high treason, etc.  He would not ask that question if JPE has no doubts about Corona’s culpability.

        Is that being malabo?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/A7NHL65QMB5OBZ5UFMS4XM4YKM joanne

        correct…    who’s malabo now?  : )

      • Karabukov

        As far as I know, strictly speaking, the impeachment has already been done by Congress. Corona is already impeached. Thus his conviction in the Senate should result in his removal (with 2/3 of the senators voting guilty). You’re the attorney and you probably meant his non-removal but that he will be censured.

        I doubt that will happen though. And the senate to vote to convict and then censure but not remove Mr. Corona will not be seen favorably by the people and the senators are very sensitive of what they think the people will view their decision.

      • thadeothadeo

        Both of us are entitled to our opinion, even if you’re a non lawyer. Corona, in my opinion did not file his SALN correctly, and he justifies that by his interpretation of the law – as a lawyer.  The next question is – who files correct SALN’s, when the manner is not provided by the Constitution itself.  There are laws which restricts the inclusion of FCDU’s or run counter to SALN provisions.  The CSC guidelines are not laws, hence they could be altered or amended anytime.

  • Filipinoflash

    He said there is no walkout…He said he still has 3 pages left of his opening statements…Corona wants to cover up his blunder by telling more lies to the Senators and to the public. Good thing is, nobody believes Corona anymore. He realized his blunder and all that he did yesterday i.e. waivers, apology and reconciliation are just for show. Corona is again using his only defense—appealing to the emotions. 

  • 2rey3

    Personally I am for the impeachment of the CJ but Friends kindly try to analyze the effect of the waiver of the CJ over his pesos and dollar accounts. If he is acquitted, he is in the best position to require the senators and Congressmen and PNoy to issue their waivers. If he is convicted, he will also demamd that the Senators and Congressmen and othe rofficials also issue their waivers or else he will complain that he is being singled out. Do you not see the brilliance of this move of the CJ?? But what concerns me most is the benefit this move will provide to the Filipino people as a whole where officials are obliged to open their accounts voluntarily for the the sake of transparency and accountability!!

    • Marx Louis Wang

       Patungo naman tayo roon sa transparency, di ba? Ano’ng singled out siya??? Wake up call na ito sa mga politicians na ang hangad ay magpayaman lang.

       ”If he is convicted, he will also demamd that the Senators and
      Congressmen and othe rofficials also issue their waivers or else he will
      complain that he is being singled out”

      He have no right to demand anything. In fact his next problem is the OMB. The waiver he signed will be used by the OMB to investigate how much money he really have and he will have to submit evidences to show the sources of the money or he will be convicted of unexplained wealth.

      It is next to impossible to ask government officials and employee to voluntarily sign a waiver to examine their bank accounts whether in pesos or in $$$. Congress will have to enact a law for that purpose or revise the FC secrecy law.

      • thadeothadeo

        The Filipino people have the right to demand transparency and accountability.  Don’t make excuses, because you have been demanding this from the CJ fos as long as I can remember.  

        Next to impossible is the same excuse of Cong. Tupas and Sen. Drilon.  They knew the law, there is Bank Secrecy Law and the FCDU law, but when the waiver was not yet signed by Corona, they dared him to violate that law.  Now that CJ has bared his, these hypocrites are hiding behind those laws.

      We should be happy for both Basa’s and Corona’s on their reconciliation. Whatever they do from here is their business now not ours. But if Corona used his position to manipulate the outcome of the cases in court like what the Basa’s were telling us, that is a different story. I am sure the Basa’s will not repeat those claim again. Lucky Sheriff!!

    • Loggnat

      Corona’s dollar account is greatly diminished now after he distributed it to the Basa family, who are the real owner of the money from the property sold to the city of Manila. A masterful move if that is what he did. He killed two birds with one stone; 1. It got rid of the huge amount of dollar deposit in his foreign/currency account and, 2. It resulted in the reconciliation of his wife’s family. A tremendous amount of pressure must have been applied by those corrupt politician on CJ Corona to let go of the booty and to end the trial as soon as possible. The trial had exposed a multitude of corrupt deals and have opened a pandora;s box of ways and means of hiding stolen government money in the foreign/  dollar account of corrupt officials. Even the prosecuting congressmen seems to be in too much of a haste to end the trial. They are sugar-coating their decision to forgo the cross-examination and are seemingly not interested anymore on what they claim was the real reason for this trial, ‘ the pursuit of  the Truth ‘. The acquittal of CJ Corona appears to be of less important anymore, maybe CJ Corona has made a deal to resign even if he is found not guilty and acquitted by the impeachment trial. The atmosphere in the trial has change dramatically in the last 24 hours and that is very unsettling and suspicious to me. I still hope for the best result that will benefit the country, I hope. An eternal optimist, that’s me. =))

    Answering the questions of Sen. Estrada, CJ Corona vividly narrated the incident about the letter of carpio moral less, which he was only able to open the following day specifically containing bold letters, Strictly Confidential. But before he even opened the letter, he was disgusted to learn that the PDI have already headlined the contents of the Strictly Confidential letter which CJ Corona had not even read yet. CJ said that when a negative news is published in PDI it has a distinction of a devastating impact to destroy a man’s reputation. I hope PDI will not change their name to Philippine Destroyer Incorporated someday.

    To moral less, ano pang hinihintay. You can always have a copy of CJ Corona’s waiver and use it for your witch hunt. Prove to the whole world that CJ Corona has 10 to 12 million dollars in 82 accounts, otherwise be brave enough to resign based on your own flaunt that “you have an untainted record after all these years.” Nakakahiya ka lola, we don’t need a lying Ombudsman because if this is so then wala tayong mapapanalong kaso kahit isa.

         the dollar account is still to be verified(with the IC its too late for now)if cj is really sincere he could have just presented the bank papers from the start..cj knows that IC is just hearer of facts not gatherer of evidence..cj is buying time..being mad is normal if someone think(or just playing innocent)that he or she is being accused of lies…i still go for track records..

      Now you can bet your life the OMB will use that waiver that Corona signed to ascertained how much money Corona have, will be ask to produce evidence of its sources or be convicted of unexplained wealth.

    This SAFE HAVEN OF CORRUPTION – this foreign account secrecy law -  was the WORK OF THE CONGRESS OF THE PHILIPPINES, CONGRESSMEN AND SENATORS ALL.  It was NOT the work of the Judiciary!!!

    Now that Chief Justice Corona, the head of the Judiciary, has signed his waiver to have his bank accounts open, the said law must now be DEEMED INTERPRETED AS EXEMPTING ALL PUBLIC OFFICIALS FROM THE COVERAGE OF THIS CORRUPT LAW. 
     
    President Nonoy Aquino,  Congressmen and Senators, Department Secretaries and USECs, and all government officials, please include your bank deposits in your SALNs and SIGN your waivers as did CJ Corona.  THIS IS THE FIRST THING THAT YOU SHOULD DO BEFORE RE-ASSUMING THE EXERCISE OF YOUR OFFICES!

    Signing a waiver does not mean Corona is not guilty.

    On the contrary, Corona provided the blue print of how to hide wealth based on his interpretation of the law (into his personal favor and convenience) as the highest justice of the Philippines. 

    Is this what everybody should follow since he is the Chief Justice?

    That is:
    1. Declaration of peso accounts under “co-mingled funds” are not part of SALN;
    2. Dollar accounts are untouchable and therefore non-taxable;
    3. Corporate dollar accounts are also untouchable and thus non-taxable too.

    Then consider the BGEI scandal and all the TROs he issued……

    The FCDU law and the Bank Secrecy Laws are inviolable.  No one, and repeat – NO one can go against those provisions, UNLESS – and here’s the catch – it is provided by law.  Predicate crimes, court order, or waiver by the individual depositor or account holder.

    The operative words are  - as provided by law.

    But PNoy and Conchita are the Law. They can violate or defy the laws.  They have done these deeds many times, and they are doing that to intimidate their objects of hate.

      • thadeothadeo

        ONly a fanatic lapdog like you are can conclude that Corona is a “thief” when he is not even charged as one, nor convicted as one.

        Morales has a chance to prove if there is 10 to 12 million dollars in the bank by virtue of a waiver.  She would not dare use the waiver because she will be unmasked as a liar, an accuser of lies like you.

        Stop whining.  Start proving.

      • pololoy

        there will likely be two ways to know if the ombudsman was telling the truth…

        1. If corona is acquitted, probably a second impeachment case will come in December. Possible article of impeachment will deal on ill-gotten wealth.

        2. If corona is removed from office, graft and corruption and ill-gotten wealth charges will most likely be filed in the Sandiganbayan.

      that only meant for the banks. otherwise all public officials convert their peso to dollar and do not declare in the SALN.

      corona did not declare by purpose, his dollar and peso assets.

    • pololoy

      I am not aware that there two laws, the “FCDU law” and the “Bank Secrecy Laws”.

      Perhaps, you are referring to Section 8 of RA 6426 which was approved on April 4, 1974.

      Be that as it may, I think you have not read Article XI, Section 17 of the 1987 Philippine Constitution and Section 8 of RA 6713 which was approved on February 20, 1989.

  • catmanjohn

    The audacious display of psychotic behavior by Corona should confound the minds of his most strident supporters, however corrupt that they may be. He is on trial as Chief Justice, and after all the charade and drama, he comes back and dares every politician to disclose his SALN, implying that they are a guilty as he is. It’s akin to a thief telling the police he has no right to arrest him for stealing, because he is certain that the cop has taken a bribe sometime during his lifetime. This morally depraved, and ethically challenged Corona is NOT fit to be a member of the Supreme Court, let alone Chief Justice.

    • thadeothadeo

      There’s something wrong with somebody’s mind if it is wired for vengeance and hatred.  He will unleash all his power to exact his vengeance to his object of hate.  Psychology calls it Hamlet syndrome –  a disorder brought about by excessive desire for revenge most likely to occur when someone’s father dies a violent death.  It may not be called depravity.  Insanity is the proper word.  He is inept and incompetent to hold office.

        The Desire of Justice is stronger in me than the Hate of Criminals and Lies, like Corona or his two bit lackeys like you who has to smell the stench of their corruption every day.

    it is obvious to me that the drama, narration and the grandchild story were all delaying tactics by the defense or by corona himself. he reappeared for trial on the Friday and submit the unconditional waiver knowing that witnesses can only be possibly  called the following Monday. his admittance to the dollar and peso accounts has made the waiver less important. his admittance to not declaring such assets made him guilty. moreover his denial of not understanding about liability and asset,  despite his years of experience working with banks, when drilon asked him of such, clearly indicates that he was avoiding answering questions why he did not declare the accounts as assets as well as liabilities since some money belong to BGEI and members of his immediate family (co-mingled).
    FCDA meant only for banks while the constitution states that …assets and liabilities must be declared in the SALN. corona purposely did not declare such assets. i voted guilty in the poll above.
    i want to see corona in his different acts at the sandiganbayan.

    Corona is again Faking by pretending to have a sudden medical condition.  No not quite Corona I’m sure the diagnosis was just a PANIC ATTACK out of FEAR.
     
    He signed a waiver and accepted the existence of the $2.4 Mil which at first he vehemently denied. That was so calculated in order to deviate the public’s attention about the reported existence of $10 – 12 Mil made public by the Ombudsman. In response he accused the Ombudsman of making it up. I wonder why the court cannot summon AMLC to clarify all the issue once and for all. JUAN DELA CRUZ wants to know.
     
    Corona is a pathological liar and the public (his employer) wants to know. It’s about time to bring the AMLC to the witness stand to shed light to all these. It’s hard for him now to get back and regain the public trust.

    Just a bit of observation. Having seen and heard the Chief Justice spoke and reason out on  television, I cannot, by some imaginable standard feel the aplomb and the sharpness of mind this person has who heads the highest judicial body of the land.  It seems this poor guy does not have wits, astute mind, the usual assertiveness, cunning and subtle but in-depth shrewdness we customary have seen of his predecessors. I am just wondering what’s his special qualities that GMA appointed made him for the post.

    During the 2010 campaign, Benigno Aquino III and Mar Roxas promised that they
    would sign a waiver authorizing full disclosure of their bank accounts
    should they be elected into office. “This is in line with the advocacy of Noynoy Aquino and myself for
    honest and clean governance … I will propose to Noynoy (Aquino) that
    this be made to apply to him and to all Cabinet secretaries,” promised
    Roxas.

    Corona is relying his absolute secrecy on a martial law era law which is now amended by a more recent law, the SALN law. This is a basic law principle that an earlier law is amended or repealed by a more recent law if the latter is inconsistent or incongruent with the former.

    What are you waiting for “Honorable” and “Magigiting” Sen. Drilon and the 184 Congressmen.  We are waiting for all of you to sign the waiver.  Don’t make excuses that you’re not the one being impeached.  Cut the crap!!  If you have nothing to hide you should rise to the occasion, sign a waiver and let your accounts be scrutinized by the people.  

    You also, Conchita Carpio-Morales sign a waiver too because we don’t need what you”ve been blabbering on tv when the reporter asked you if you will sign a waiver that he can just go to BPI and ask for your account.  You know that’s a lot of bull, so sign a waiver now!!

    BTW, I salute the four Congressmen who signed their waivers immediately after the challenge unlike these “so-called Kagalang-galang” politicians and OBW.  Huwag sana naming kayong matawag na mga “Kagulang-gulang” na Senator and Congressmen. So sign the waiver, NOW NA!!

    Perfectly clearly, indisputably, indubitably Guilty!
    that’s what Renato Corona is.

    His too little too late fake confessions cannot match the shining
    and absolutely believable truth and testimony delivered highly
    convincingly with documented proof by the present Ombusdman.

    If only Corona is a match for the Ombudsman, but he’s miles and
    miles away from having that kind of integrity, perspicacity and total
    dedication to duty and public service. And on top of it all, so humble
    the Ombudsman is, unlike the always fake demeanor of Thief Justice
    Corona.

    Case closed! Corona unanimously, or almost unanimously impeached!
    The coming Senate verdict is perfectly clear, indisputable and
    indubitable. Any senator-judge voting to acquit Corona would be
    committing instant political hara-kiri!

      CJ already admitted of owning the accounts. He even disclosed the total $ deposits. And even before he did, the AMLC report already provided the necessary evidence.
      So what for? They already got what they want.  Remember, the case is about incorrect SALN, not money laundering, so the exact amount is irrelevant.

    • sangandaan

      what for? there was an AMLAC report which he did not denied in his oratorical speech that they exists; only the figures matter, but they do; he admitted that he has amassed millions of dollars and pesos more than what he earned; he claimed a simple life yet his meal reimbursements with wife sa mga personal na mga lakad nya amount to 15,000 to 25,000 pesos (sa isang kainan lang, ha?). at the very least, he presented it at the eleventh hour of the hearing, as if to fire a lost shot to save his face from nationwide outraged over his conditional waiver beforehand.

    It’s all politics in the end. It’s also strategy after strategy by the defense but I like the prosecution strategy better for not taking the bate of the defense.  I agree with the prosecution with no more cross exam because they no longer want to prolong the process and for the prosecution to reach a resolution is a victory for them. I commend JPE for his exceptional decision making and control of the situation, he could have been a better President if he is younger. Senator Escudero demonstrated to me that he is not worthy to be a future President for not getting the point of the prosecution or the defense. The decision of the Senators will be judged by the people when election time.

    The AMLAC Report was most damaging….No documentary evidence was presented by the Defense to refute the data of the AMLAC.

    Some of the funds withdrawn, several hundred thousands, several times, did not get back to any other accounts. Where did those funds go?

    Very bad there was lack of time to go into evaluation of the transactions reported by the AMLAC.

    It will not be too late, however, acquital or conviction, such evaluation is needed to ascertain whether there was money laundering and if so, in what forms?

    If no Senator Judge has ever disclosed his/her dollar accounts (granted that some Senator Judges have dollar accounts), wouldn’t that mean that they too think that the FCDU law is absolute?

    “His wife, Maria Cristina Roco Corona, was appointed by fOrmer F a k e President Arroyo to the Board of John Hay Management Corporation. (She later became president and COO.) She was one of those who signed a paid newspaper advertisement supporting Former F A K E President Arroyo in early 2008 who was then besieged with allegations that she approved an overpriced national broadband deal knowing that the project was tainted by bribery.”

    These acts allegedly are the reasons why Corona, in 19 major cases against the Arroyo admin, voted for it. Among the 19 were: the grant of territory to Moro separatists, the Hello Garci tapes, and the ZTE scam (for which Mrs. Corona advertised support for the for the Former F a k e President ArroYo).

    Cuevas spoke about plans by his defense team to look at possibly filing with the Supreme Court a petition against potential conviction of Corona by the Senate impeachment court. He plans to cite possible grave abuse by the Senate judges.

    WHAT NONSENSE IS THIS? HIS PLAN IS REALLY DESPICABLE & DISGUSTING?
    DON’T SOME LAWYERS LIKE CUEVAS HAVE ANY SHAME & GOOD SENSE OF RIGHT & WRONG?

    Who abused whom?

    The Senate accepted Corona’s 3-hour self-serving declaration of innocence last Tuesday — despite HIS ABYSMAL FAILURE to present documentary evidence to support his empty claims of innocence.

    The Senate gave Corona and his defense team more than ample time to present documentary evidence to refute allegations against Corona. Corona and lawyers never did ….. until the last minute with a lousy offer of waiver on the secrecy of his peso and dollar deposits.

    And what about Corona’s walkout from the Senate court last Tuesday …. even before he was discharged by the presiding judge? Di ba pambabastos yon ng korte at ng madlang bayan na umasa at naghintay na siya ay ma cross examine?

    The extensive media coverage of Corona’s trial will do the Filipino people a very great and meaningful service.

    On one hand, it has unmasked to all Pinoys and the whole world the evils of people like Corona and his shameless lawyers like Cuevas. While lawyers have the mandate of defending their clients to the best of their ability, I believe that they should not lose their morality and sense of right and wrong in spite of the outcome of the trial of their clients.

    On the other hand, the trial has also shown to everyone that big-time white-collar grafters can be prosecuted, publicly shamed and made to account for their malfeasance. And that the frenetic fight against corruption is on and that Juan de la Cruz may hope for better and cleaner services from public servants.

    What’s going on here? They wanted a waiver, or a waiver without conditions but now that they got CJ Corona’s waiver, all of a sudden they seem not to want it after all. When someone like Congressman Angara says, it’s a little too late, it only gives ammunition to the suspicious minds that he could probably be hiding a dollar account or accounts. BTW, the signing of waivers by three of the congressmen, will have the domino effect to those without dollar accounts and whoever are left without signing their waivers will be presumed as  hiding something.

    While Chiz Escudero is wondering why is it that now that Corona signed a waiver, all of a sudden nobody is interested, I too question these Prosecutors and Prosecutor/Judge Drilon. 

     The same with the Corona haters.  They have been bombarding the airwaves, prints and blogs that Corona is hiding in the cloak of TRO but now that he signed a waiver, you will hear excuses after excuses that its too late, they’re not the one being impeached, etc.  

    You’re all consumed by your hatred that there’s no more reasons left in your minds.  You only see the speck on Corona’s eyes but you don’t see the log on the faces of these corrupt officials.  I would like to think that this thinking is brought about by persons with a corrupt mind.

    The only good I see in the trial of CJ Corona is the sidelight reconciliation of the feuding families that put an end to 30 years of misunderstanding.  But the trial itself is a testament of hatred and prejudice that cost millions of taxpayers’ money without benefit to the campaign against corruption and the drive for transparency in governance.  The exercise would have matttered if all of the 189 in favor of impeachment would have signed their own waivers, too, to open their own accounts to the scrutiny of the public so that we can test the sincerity and integrity of our lawmakers who seem more bent on condemning rather than honest cleaning of this government.  In fact, the “judge not and ye shall not be judged challenge” was met with scepticism, cynicism even and casual dismissal even after a non-conditional waiver was made, including on real estate, on all bank deposits, and on anything and everything imputably bad on the CJ’s ”ill-gotten wealth.”

    Even the interpretation of the Constitution became an issue: which is superior, the fundamental law of the land or subsequent laws passed by the Congress of the Philippines. But the senator-judges who have used the media to condemn the CJ, I think, are barking up the wrong tree.  The issue is not on which is superior; the issue is one of which in particular applies to the situation.  To misread the constitutional provision of “may” in the Constitution, which is permissive in reality, allowing for future laws or legislation, against the applicability of 2 laws at least with abolute prohibitions, is to put an unnecessary wedge between the intentions of complementary laws.  This is to mislead, and works very little for correctly understanding the delicate situation of the accused.

    When the CJ he had 4 dollar accounts with something like US$4 M, this is not to admit 82 accounts; in fact he countered very effectively with his own powerpoint presentation, the AMLC misrepresentation of the existence of 82 accounts in his name.  It would be a mistake, just because anyone had dollar accounts (who among those who accuse do not have?) to conclude that therefore this admitted amount constitutes an impeachable offence.  As the CJ stated in his direct testimony, he and wife Christina, with their children and monies from Basa-Guidote and others had “commingled” funds.  Under such condition that the prosecution does not contest, it is not correct to include the same in his SALN.  He wouldn’t know in such a case which, how much, etc. of such amount is his to be legitimately included in his SALN, since the money is not his alone.  In fact, had he stated so in his SALN, what guarantee will he have that the other contributors to the commingled funds won’t be exposed themselves?  The bank secrecy law and the FCDA are so explicit: prohibition to reveal foreign deposits is absolute and revealing them are limited only to certain conditions.

    Right is not a popularity contest.  The senator-judges should not be guided by the prejudice and pre=judgment generated by hate and publicity.  If we can live in peace, harmony and understanding of each other despite our individual differences, this country would go a long way and with the grace of God, walk the straight path to our heavenly home.

      Yes, that was a touching moment.  They were at war for 30 yrs and it took the trial to reconcile them.  Even if Corona gets convicted, he has won if only for the reconciliation.

    • thadeothadeo

      All of the senator/judges are aware that no one has declared his SALN correctly.  And if non-filing correctly is an high offense, then they must all hang. Ergo, except for the dyed -in-the wool senators – Drilon, Pangilinan, Trillanes, Guinhonal, and Osmena, the senators will look into themselves if they want Corona removed for such correctable lapse.

    • pololoy

      sir, as i see it, the ombudsman based her observation on the AMLC report of transactions under the name of renato c. corona… based on the report, some of the 82 accounts were the result of investment banking… for each investment made a new account is created… therefore, the 82 accounts actually existed at some point in time… and renato corona admitted that all those 82 accounts existed in some point in time during his own power point presentation… ang sabi nga lang nya, 4 na lang ang existing today… as i understand it, the ombudsman did not claim that all those 82 accounts are still existing today.  

      as to your claim that “it would be a mistake just because anyone had a dollar account to conclude that therefore this admitted amount constitutes an impeachable offense.”

      i humbly wish you read Article 11, Section 17 of the 1987 Philippine Constitution and Section 8 of RA 6713 which was approved on February 20, 1989.

      mr corona claimed he did not disclose his dollar deposits because of Section 8 of RA 6426 which was approved on April 4, 1974.

      now, mr corona seemed to be ignorant of the relevant provisions of the 1987 Constitution and RA 6713.

      if the chief justice is ignorant of the law or to put it mildly, deliberately distorted the provisions of the law to suit his purpose, can the country still trust him?

      is it not a culpable violation of the constitution and betrayal of public trust?

      • bgcorg

        The prosecution has to prove that he violated the Constitution and it is culpable and that in acting as he did, he betrayed the public trust.  It is as simple as that.  Sadly, despite the rhetoric, the prosecution failed to prove that he did!  In other words, beyond saying that he is ignorant of the law or distorted the provisions of the law to suit his purpose, did you cogently prove that there was “culpable” violation of the Constitution or that he “betrayed” the public trust?  There’s a missing link there!  So many SALNs do not include FCDAs and the CJ has just followed suit, if he did.  Moreover, the SALN can be revised: even reports to the BIR are subject to final audit or at most an investigation and the SALN is no exception.  The case often cited about a court employee who did not declare income from a store in her SALN is differently situated.  To be judgmental about “ignorance” or worse, the imputation of malice was not proven at all in court.

    • rosamistika16

      on the contrary, i don’t see that the reconciliation is for real. what i foresee is a judas kiss!

      as for JPE, he is very clever. Senator-judges are hearer of facts and will decide based on what the prosecution and defense have submitted. The proof to the allegation is with the prosecutor and they presented it based on documents submitted by them and the ombudsman’s testimony. It is the responsibility of the defense to deny the accusations point by point by showing tangible documents especially on bank deposit issues and not by providing the senator-judges a waiver for them to research and disclose his bank accounts for their use.  Corona’s move is a decision that he should have done before so the prosecution can really do the research but today is no longer the right time. For prosecutors and senator-judges to accept corona’s waiver only means prolonging the case. but why prolong the case if they already knew the answer for a question of his credibility and fitness as a chief justice?

      • bgcorg

        The prosecutors have rested their case already.  Nevertheless, they could have asked the court to subpoena the bank managers if they wanted really to know the truth.  The defense is not obliged to do so.  But, as it is, it seems that the prosecution is contented with shaming the CJ and not after the truth itself.  They have succeeded because in the mind of the public now, the CJ is guilty.  But, it could be wrong to misrepresent in his SALN even money that is not his or owned.  Luckily, he did not, but of course he had earned the doubt and ire of his enemies already by this time.

    • TGM_ERICK

      Agree! Super comments. But may I say that the CJ admitted to only $2.4M

    We’ll  just say that the dollar account is a non issue  due to the 
     FCDU law but on the account of his peso deposits which he describes and insists that those are  co mingled funds,  the bottom line here is the accounts are under his name of which only a portion of the funds were declared on his SALN. What does this constitute? The way i see it, it clearly a miss declaration of his SALN .As long as the funds are deposited in your account the presumption is those funds are yours irregardless if it is co-mingled or not.

  • yesyesyo

    Corona is relying on the dollar deposit secrecy law which is a martial law era law. this old law has now been amended by the newer SALN law.

    This is based on a basic principle in law that if two laws are inconsistent or contradictory, the newer law will prevail. In effect, the newer law amends the part of the old law which is inconsistent or contradictory to the newer law.

    All law students know this fundamental legal principle. Apparently, the chief justice dont know this.

  • jayemdee_412

    I’m just wondering why CJ Corona prolong the impeachment trial by not signing the waiver to open his bank accounts when it was being sought by the prosecution panel. He could have save Juan dela Cruz a lot of money if he did so. It took him more than 40 days to sign the waiver and even dared the 188 representatives and Senator Drilon to do the same. And now that he has signed a waiver the impeachment court says it is not a provider of evidence but a hearer of evidence. Was it one of Shakespeare characters who said “first kill all the lawyers.”

    • agong1

    “We are not on trial here.”

    This is the statement of the year.  And it’s a shameful excuse. The thieves are saying that -”too little, too late.”

    Why too late? It’s timely.

    The constitution is for transparency and accountability.  This is the spirit of the law – of the constitutional provision for the SALN.  Corona’s impeachment trial had brought that to fore. 

     The thieves must stop using the statement “We are not on trial here.”

     THE CHALLENGE must be taken up by these righteous wannabe’s – the 188 +
    Drilon: sign your respective waivers. For the many days before last
    Tuesday, the prosecutors were all a gaga asking, nay even demanding the
    CJ to sign that waiver. Now that he has signed it, what are they to do?
    The court will not act on it according to the presiding officer, and
    that is his prerogative, but now, this issue goes
    beyond impeachment. In the name and for the sake of transparency and
    matuwid na daan this issue should be put to rest by the 189 signing
    their waiver. I believe signing it is the moral thing to do for these
    189 holier-than-thou accusers. If they refuse, one thing is glaringly
    clear: they are the ones who have something to hide! Hypocrites. Mga

    The Prosecution capitalized on the disagreement of the families.  But in the end, the evil ploy of the Prosecution boomeranged on their faces.  Everything in their strategy always boomeranged on your faces, but always, to their disadvantage. Next time Prosecution, write a story with a happy ending that will favor your side.

    Yesterday CJ Corona brought with him a glucometer, a can of pop cola and a cupcake. Being a diabetic for 20 years he should have brought these things in his first appearance in the impeachment court last Tuesday and thus his hypoglycemic episode, if true, could have been avoided.

  • PH2011

    The unconditional waiver was given by the Chief Justice to the Senate
    Impeachment Court “AFTER” the defense and the prosecutor forego their direct
    and cross examinations.

    Everybody is watching, it’s a premeditated move again by CJ and the
    defense. Meaning if the prosecutor confirmed that they waived their right to
    Cross Examine, CJ will release his unconditional waiver to win the sympathy of
    the people…and IF the senator-judges pose a hard questions, he will just excused
    himself, as a sick person. Obviously, he consumed a lot of time in explaining irrelevant
    issues on his answer. Thus, several senator-judges failed to ask clarifications
    ( ie. S. Osmena etc..)

    BTW:Why the Senator from Sorsogon can not understand that? It’s the senate
    president who announced that they can no longer act on that waiver. Obviously,
    it’s too late, he should have done that earlier. Intelligent people won’t buy
    that idea, not even his earlier testimonies (e.g. No Aircon? In his property at
    The Column Condominium Makati, Belagio etc? No Maid/Househelpers? etc).

    Supreme Court/Ombudsman records will prove that, ORDINARY government
    employees had been discharged from the service due to non-disclosures of SALN. I
    believe, the Chief of Justice is no exception.

    Undeniably, he is tired and unfit to discharge his duty as the Chief
    Magistrate (unless he feign his sickness). Well, It’s time to enjoy his savings
    and/or unexplained wealth.

    He admitted a 2.4 Million Dollar and 80 Million  Peso Deposit, roughly equivalent to P188
    MILLION in total ( Not even mentioned in this news article, again check the
    authors name), whether  legally or illegally
    obtained, he’s very much luckier than ordinary Juan dela Cruz. With the tremendous
    wealth, his financial need is fully secured for rest of his life. Well, unless
    the government found a probable cause to sequester his assets.

    Hopefully, the Senator-Judges Guilty verdict will send him to rest, I mean
    to retirement.

    HE SAID THAT BEFORE JOINING THE GOVERNMENT, HE WAS ALREADY A VERY, VERY SUCCESSFUL PRIVATE LAWYER.
    AND HE TESTIFIED UNDER OATH THAT HE DON’T KNOW ABOUT ASSETS, CREDITS NOR LIABILITIES.
    IMAGINE A LAW FIRM HAVING TO DO WITH A LAWYER WHO APPARENTLY DON’T KNOW DOLLAR DEPOSITS ARE ASSETS.
    ARE WE TO BELIEVE A CHIEF JUSTICE IS IGNORANT TO THESE SIMPLE TERMS?
    THESE ARE SWORN STATEMENTS.
    WHAT HAPPENED TO THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH?
    WHAT ABOUT THE PUNISHMENT WHEN ONE IS NOT TELLING THE TRUTH UNDER OATH…

    SHOULD EVERYBODY JUST IGNORE THIS MOCKERY OF COURT RULE????

    I HATE TO BE LIED TO AND INSULTED LIKE THIS…

    HOW ABOUT YOU????

    • violet55

      Be elected as Senator first so you can sit as Prosecutor/Judge side by side with Drilon so that you will not feel insulted.  But for now, you can just watch and wait for the IC’s decision.  I expect you’ll say a mouthful and will feel insulted again once the decision is out.

    An excerpt from another website….

    Talagang sinungaling si Thief, Cheap, Cheat Justice

    A guard assigned at the fire exit told me that Corona appeared well. He was okay when he reached here, the guard said in Filipino, but appeared to weaken after he knew that he couldn’t leave. “Dito na siya nanghina noong nalaman niya na hindi siya makakaalis.”

    The video and photos, indeed, show no pain or discomfort etched in Corona’s face as he was stopped by security guards. His lawyers say the diabetic Chief Justice was already feeling sick toward the latter part of his three-hour testimony thus he abruptly left the session hall.If the Chief Justice were not feeling well, he could have gone direct to the medical clinic, which is about 10 steps away from the Senate session hall exit. Above the door is a sign that is hard to miss.However, he chose to go to a farther place, the fire exit. This was the same route he took when he arrived in the Senate.

  • thadeothadeo

    Reminder to all:

    Corona is not accused, nor alleged, to be a thief, to have committed graft and corruption, nor of ill gotten-wealth.

    All your judgments and accusations here are product of organized propaganda of hatred coming from an vindictive president who was deprived of 10 billion pesos worth of Hacienda Luisita’s close to 6 thousand hectares.

    • KapitanBagwis

       Your contention is correct, however his moral is  on trial here and from day 1 to the last day he appeared at the IC, he is found to be morally bankrupt to continue as the highest magistrate of the land. He is a pathological liar, finally admitted that he have several millions of pesos and $$ account in several banks and several high end properties not declared in his under oath SALN.

      Like the lady court employee who lost her job for failure to include her little flea market business in her SALN., Corona must be found guilty for non-declaration of his several millions of pesos and $$$ accounts in the banks and high end properties in his SALN.

      • thadeothadeo

        So quit those epithets that he is a thief or corrupt. Just because Moral less says he is a liar, you believe her.  How about Harvey Keh, Eulalio Diaz, and Moral less herself? Your prejudice is very ostentatious.  You are off topic about your example, totally irrelevant, just to justify your accusations.  Be objective and fair.

        I presume you don’t like the reconciliation of the Coronas and the Basas seen by the world yesterday.  Now you will not be using what Corona has done to the Basas, would you?

      • KapitanBagwis

        My opinion, that reconciliation is scripted and most probably huge amount is involve for the show under the glaring lights of the TV cameras. For me, true reconciliation is done privately, solemnly and with sincerity.

        Even before the presentation of the OMB, I know he is a pathological liar. You want me to believe he’s got no live in house help and air conditioning system even in a room? I am no chief justice but I have those. He is a liar.

    • Don Dee

      At the onset of the trial, SP JPE made a ruling on one of the sub-paragraphs under the general heading of “SALN”, that although the IC will not accept any evidence regarding ill-gotten wealth, the court shall take judicial notice that when the evidence presented to the court tends to prove assets not commensurate to the legal income of the accused, the charge of ill-gotten wealth shall be in play. Sorry I can’t remember the specific number. But that is what it is. 

      • thadeothadeo

        You don’t know or you don’t remember?  JPE is stern presiding officer.  Any mention of ill gotten wealth are stricken out from the record.  He was even adamant to the testimonies about BGEI knowing it was irrelevant.  The senators will be using only evidence about the items in the SALN, included or not, not about graft or ill gotten wealth, not according to your post here.

    • balut123

      oh yeah!…..maybe you have forgotten that this started when your patron accepted the post as Chief Justice during the election period where appointments were banned….and he aggravated it when he and his cohorts in the SC released a TRO to let his benefactor GMA  leave the country.
      That’s how this impeachment started….pero kay Thief Justice…gusto niyang papaniwalain ang mga uto uto niya na pinagtatanggol niya ang Judiciary sa kamay ng Presidente at dahil daw sa HLI….

      He brought all this to himself….

    The prosecutors objective is just to prosecute as what directed by PNOY Abnoy and the wants of Yellow Zombie Troupers.. they don’t care the explanation of the other side… all they want is to remove CJ on his post and reinstated the dog of Malacañang to fulfill their dream of MONOPOLY.

    The sudden denial of documents (bank accounts) which earlier the prosecutors and the Yellow Zombie Troupers around here were clamoring is a display of arrogance that themselves believe they were deprived of real information regarding the difference between fact and truth of CJ’s properties… 

    From the very start of their accusations of 45 real states until $10M to $12M bank deposits and 82 bank accounts, they failed to divulged to the senate court the fact of their allegations as witnessed by millions of Filipinos..

    However, they have the last option should the senate acquit CJ Corona… the “streets of opportunity”, this is how the yellow mob really want and the media will again ride with it to fulfill the last attempt of expelling CJ Corona.

    Opinion ko lang. It seems that most of us do not get the real story here. WE THE FILIPINO PEOPLE DESERVES TO KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT THOSE BANK ACCOUNTS. Are not we are after for the truth here. I do not agree that the Senate cannot call those bank managers. They are the Court and for the sake of finding the truth they can do this. They cannot be the evidence for the prosecutor or defense. But it can be the evidence of every FILIPINO people who DESERVES TO KNOW THE TRUTH. 

    • pololoy

      sige nga po… you call those bank managers

    • thadeothadeo

      It is now open to anyone to scrutinize the bank accounts with the waiver.  No need for the senate.  Corona has signed it.  Now the people deserves to know about our government officials – especially the congressmen, the most corrupt bunch with pork barrels.

    • KapitanBagwis

       The impeachment court can not afford to prolong the trial. They have to wind up asap.

      • thadeothadeo

        She did, and it’s either or both – she was confused or she lied.  Now she can check her accusations with banks armed with the waiver.

        What’s keeping her?.  If she can prove Corona is lying, she can investigate him, and call Corona a thief and a liar.

        She won’t.  That’d be embarrassing licking your vomit.

        The Ombudsman was merely testifying based on the document that was given to her by AMLAC. The Ombudsman do not know whether that document was accurate or not. She merely just presumed that the document is accurate. 

      • KapitanBagwis

        All documents submitted by several banks to AMLAC are all authentic. Banks will not submit spurious report/documents to AMLC or they will get in big trouble if found out that their reports are spurious. Therefore, on the assumption that AMLC reports are authentic, the OMB believe that the documents she presented to the IC are genuine or authentic. The IC or the defense can call the head of the AMLC to testify to the authenticity of the report but the defense did not do so because they know it is not necessary.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZVYGTQD62BG53XYZ5MD2ICMFGY yahoo-ZVYGTQD62BG53XYZ5MD2ICMFGY

        Why would the defense call those AMLAC officials to authenticate a document which the defense claim is not accurate? It should be the prosecutors. But then again the Prosecutors firmly believes that there evidence is good enough..

      • KapitanBagwis

        If you remember, the OMB is a hostile witness of the defense. The prosecutions has nothing to do with the OMB testifying. That was the big mistake of the defense to call the OMB. Many people are forgetting that the OMB was the defense witness. Now they are accusing the OMB of lying. They are stupid.

      • KapitanBagwis

        No sir, doesn’t work that way. JPE said the IC doesn’t provide, it hears, meaning it either the prosecution or the defense will request to subpoena the bank executives. But both sides deemed it no longer necessary to call them. The IC can make their resolution and verdict on the basis of evidences previously submitted.

        Several bank executives to witness will take more than a day.

    • sheldonbot

      The Prosecution Team need not call bank managers anymore. Their contention is Corona did not declare all his assets in  his SALN. The exact amount is not relevant. AND this was proven when the defense team called Ombudsman Morales. She had with her solid evidence, the AMLC report.

      Furthermore, Corona admitted to have $2.4 million dollars and P80 million. These were not reflected in his SALN. 

      Any government employee knows you must declare ALL assets including cash in bank. 
      Corona did not know this????  And he is the CHIEF JUSTICE????
      He is merely justifying his hidden wealth.

    He admitted he has dollar accounts that he purposely did not include in his SALNs, who cares if he signed a waiver or not. If a lowly-stationed civil servant was dealt with a life-changing punishment for not declaring a market stall, it would be anomalous to acquit Corona for not declaring, admittedly on purpose, ninety million pesos worth of dollars. Never mind his willingness to look stupid before the Filipino people with his flimsy legal interpretation excuse.

      What’s the relevance of his waiver when he already admitted having such huge deposits in his name and not declared in his SALN.. and moreover, ill-gotten wealth is not included in the article of impeachment. Just wait for the ombudsman to investigate his ill-gotten wealth..

      Yep.  Corona has thrown all cautions to the wind.  he will bare all, and challenges every government official to do the same.  This is our shining moment for transparency and accountability.  And avoiding it with the pretext – I am not on trial here – ek ek, is avoiding transparency and accountability.

      • billy31

  • yesyesyo

    Corona relies so much  on the martial law era dollar deposit secrecy law. This is now amended by a new law, the SALN law that provides all assets, liabilities and net worth of all public officials should be declared in the sworn SALN.

    It is a basic principle in law that when 2 laws are inconsistent or contradictory, the newer law will prevail and, in effect, amends the old law.

    Apparently, corona do not know this. so lame.

    • thadeothadeo

      Are you a member of the bar to hold this legalistic opinion?  Laws must be repealed or amended by congress and interpreted by the courts..  Should a conflict arise, which one is more superior, this is brought to the SC who has the last say for the correct interpretation.  

      Who are you to render such ruling?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YRHGKTVYNMTIBFJMBHHHHR7GNM Andy

        If interpretation of conflicting laws fall into the Corona Court, the country will go to the dogs. Stop talking of judicious interpretation of laws while Corona is in the Supreme Court. We deserve something better.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YRHGKTVYNMTIBFJMBHHHHR7GNM Andy

        The law is quite clear. Public officials like Corona must submit under oath a yearly Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth (SALN). Corona admitted in open court that he owned $2.4 million and P80 million in various banks. 

        Article 2 of the impeachment complaint against Corona accused him of failing to disclose all of his assets and liabilities as required by law (Section 8 of RA 6713 known as the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees.

        In his 2010 SALN, Corona reported only assets of P3.5 million. Clearly, he violated the law. Well, the law may be harsh like you said. So, Corona deserves to be impeached. He will be impeached 23-0, bro. Trust me. 

      • Matashari

        We do deserve better. We should realize that. Maybe it’s not anymore a question kung me nilabag na batas or whatever si Corona.

      • thadeothadeo

        So they must be repealed and amended.  Only courts can do that, by jurisprudence, or the congress if the conflict is so flagrant.

        Laws are not perfect, and there are hundreds of them.  That’s why court are necessary to make such rulings. Unless a decision is rendered by the court, or repealed by Congress, that law stands.

      • yesyesyo

         so dumb!hahaha! thadeo halatang wala kang alam. The courts dont amend laws.hahaha!

      • thadeothadeo

        Their interpretation is literally amending or altering the law.  That’s called jurisprudence.  If the law is ambiguous or inconsistent with another, their ruling is the law.  Notice how lawyers cite decisions from SCRA when making pleadings or when in such proceedings like what we heard and saw in this impeachment.  Miriam and JPE, typified the way lawyers cite various jurisprudence to assert their manifestations.

      • yesyesyo

         In the absence of the ruling, it is clear the legal principle applies that: a new law amends an old law which is inconsistent with the new law.

      You cannot incriminate yourself. Your testimony will not be used against you (unless you volunteer it or admit it.)You cannot be  forced to produce evidence against yourself in any court of law, You will be presumed innocent until proven guilty.

    This trial is better than watching the “circus de soleil”.  All the hoopla and intrigue, we end up with the same result which could have been done much earlier only if Mr. Corona have used his common sense and intelligent.  It would have also save a lot of time and taxpayer’s money.  Being a lawyer, I thought Corona would have been little smart to know that playing with crooks like him will not gain him anything.  Look at it now.  His reputation is ruin.  His family was put in shame including innocent people (Basa-Guidote family) which he could have just made amend by just admitting it.  Now, he tried to reconcile but too late as the whole country knows their family squabbles.  On top of this, the one thing that he was trying not everybody to know was, the money in the bank. Corona now willing to open with no pre-condition.  What a joke, I thought.  It’s now up to these senators to give their verdict.  I won’t be surprised if these senators will not convict Corona.  It’s just like convicting themselves if Corona is convicted because every filipinos knows that these senators were crooks themselves.  As I mentioned from the beginning of this trial, this was merely “the gathering of crooks”………that’s all.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YRHGKTVYNMTIBFJMBHHHHR7GNM Andy

      • pololoy

      • manual47

        Wow…you still don’t get it.  Who said I was blaming the current president.  In fact, I was really admiring him for what he is doing at this time.  However, you know for fact that there are still a lot of crooks in the government that still don’t believe on the strategy that the present government was doing.  These crooks still believe that business as usual.  Look around you and it’s the same politicians that’s running the show.  Year after year.  WHY….because they’re there and filipinos keep voting for them.
        Ask yourself now before 2016.  Would you still vote for these same bunch……..Binay, Estrada, Honasan, Marcos, Santiago, Revilla, Drilon, Enrile (he’s too old.  He should have been gone long time ago), etc…etc….etc….where are the goods ones, may I ask.  You got a president now who’s doing something.  Nurture it.  Maybe it’s the beginning of the new era in the Philippines politics.  Get rid of the corrupt politicians.  Use your “voting power” wisely.  It’s the only way to get rid of these crooks That’s the only way.  It’s your power that’s been there but was not being used properly….

      • pololoy

        My reply to your question in the second paragraph sir, is “secret”… :-)

        But seriously, I salute you sir for the desire to rid the country of corrupt government officials and also probably, even ordinary employees just as any other well-meaning Filipinos.. ( by the way, my perception is that corruption is also prevalent in the private sector)…

        Now, I think it is better to get the crooks one at a time… We only have one Senate and it would be almost impossible to impeach 5 or 10 high government officials all at the same time…

        As regards the Senators/Congressmen, there are some 292 members of the Lower House and 23 Senators. In total, there are 315 legislators in all…

        I fully agree with you that the citizens should exercise their right to vote wisely so that corrupt people are not elected to government positions.

        There are some 19 executive departments headed by a Secretary and perhaps triple or quadruple that number of undersecretaries, ambassadors and more numerous undersecretaries and directors, etc…

        Hindi pa po kasama dyan ang military at police and other government owned or controlled corporations…

        We could only imagine how tedious and cumbersome it would be to file and resolve cases even if we only charge one-fourth of the above mentioned officials..

        I am not saying it is hopeless, but I think, we should prioritize and start at the high places if there is evidence of malfeasance or misfeasance. The current impeachment case against the Chief Justice is a big start. He may or may not be acquitted but the bottom line is that the government is sending warnings to everybody…

    Game over na para kay Corona, but Ombudsman Morales must resign for bloating the dollar accounts to 80 accounts. And AMLA and LRA must be accountable for providing false reports/evidence.

    • willbillywilly

      morales never bloated the dollar account of tj, what she said was transactional balance. amlc doesnt know the balance. individual transactions beyond 500,000 are the only ones submitted by banks. indeed there were 82 accounts but  most  were closed & the only remaining ones are the 4 acc. but these are based on tj testimony only

    • albuster

      If you watched and listened closely to Corona’s powerpoint presentation he practically confirmed the existence of those accounts within the same time frame as that of the Ombudsman’s PPP. The time frame was from 2003-2011 and Corona showed he opened and closed a total of over 80 accounts. AMLC cannot provide any false evidence because those reports were automatically sent to the agency when a bank transaction exceeds 500,000 pesos at any given time. Besides, the AMLC is part of a worldwide network of agencies that monitor money laundering and that there is no way the AMLC can possibly fudge or manufacture information since international sanctions are pretty severe.
      Once again, Corona confirmed that he did have those accounts from 2003-2011, and also confirmed the statement of the Ombudsman that these accounts have been closed and consolidated into a few mother accounts. So, ayan para maliwanag.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/X2NCKKMAPUCK7KNEEJV7WHL42E Sitoy

        yun din ang nakikita ko, ang sinabi lang nya na 4 dollar account nalang at present time, yung presentation nya base sa sinabi ni moales na 82 from 2003-2011 eh parang aminado sya na losed account na yung iba mula hanggang dec. 2011

      • eae_eg

        minsan inde mo maalis sa isip mo na inde naman ganon ka talino si corona…

        why would he call morales testimony a lantern of lies, fabricated, hoax, etc..when in fact in corona’s testimony he practically agreed in the existence of 82 $accounts. morales never said that corona has 82 accounts as of dec/2011; she said there were 82 accounts from 2003-2011.

        the amlc report appeared to be correct then; the next question is how to prove the $10-12M now that corona signed waiver on all of his bank accounts..going further, the issue also is this – who are the real sources of these dollars, particularly in 2004, 2007 and 2010 where major transactional movements were noted by morales.

      • pololoy

        the $10M – $12M will unfold at the next impeachment case, if ever corona is acquitted. the article of impeachment, i suppose, is gonna be ill-gotten wealth…

        however, if corona is removed from office, it will unfold in a case before the sandiganbayan…

    • pololoy

      mang pete, ang AMLC report ay patungkol po yon sa mga bank transactions na nasa pangalan ni renato c. corona na sinabmit ng iba’t ibang bangko sa AMLC nang naaayon sa RA  9160, commonly known as the AMLC Law … 

      ngayon, ang bawat transaction na nagkakahalaga ng P500,000 pataas (or its dollar equivalent) ay nirereport po yan ng mga bangko sa AMLC… base sa AMLC report, ang isang tao na may pangalang renato c. corona ay nagkaroon ng maraming transactions mula 2003 hanggang 2011 na nagkakahalaga ng kalahating milyon o higit pa bawat transaction..

      ang paliwanag ni corona tungkol dyan ay dahil siya ay nag nenegosyo ng foreign currency… sa temang mga bankers, pag kayo po ay nagnenegosyo ng tinatawag na investment banking, bawat investment nyo po, kayo ay binibgyan ng bagong account… pag winidrow nyo na po ang pera doon ang account na yon ay isasara…

      kung ganun, itong si renato corona ay nag invest ng hindi bababa sa 82 beses… posible din na hindi 82 beses kasi posibleng ang ibang accounts ay savings, checking, time deposit accounts o anu pa mang mga accounts merong ino-offer ang bangko… 

      ganun pa man, pinatunayan ng AMLC na pirmado ng kanila Executive Officer, base na rin sa mga reports ng mga bangko na itong si renato corona ang nagkaroon ng 82 transactions (more or less) na ang ibig sabihin, siya ay nagkaroon ng 82 accounts in some point in time…

      kahapon inamin ni corona na meron lang siyang 4 dollar accounts, di po ba… na ang ibig sabihin, ang kanyang investment banking transactions ay posibleng 78 lang, ang apat ay either, savings, checking, time deposit, etc…

      kaya ngayon, totoo na nagkaroon siya ng 82 dollar accounts in some point in time, pero ang iba doon ay sarado na kaya 4 na lang ngayon ang natira…..

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GUDXSLGDJSVES3MAZKXXMXJXXM Ratzkey

    Galing naman ng timing ni Corona. Hinintay nya na magsabi ang prosekusyon na iwaive ang cross examination bago nilabas ang waiver. Tsaka tinayming talaga na last day of hearing. Napahiya na tuloy si Tupas na mag-iba ng isip dahil sa earlier pronouncement na magwaive in case wala nang direct. Kaya lang bagong scenario yun eh dapat inexamine pa rin ang dollar accounts para malaman kung kelan ang biggest inflow ng pera to discredit yung sabi na nakapag ipon nga since 1970. Wala namang masama dun kung inexamine kesa magrely lang sa Amlc report na questionable na ngayun kasi 12M USD ang nilalaman. Who knows baka 12M nga pero ngayun hindi na malalaman. Prosecution started weak and ended weak :(

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GUDXSLGDJSVES3MAZKXXMXJXXM Ratzkey

      Nevertheless, being a CJ klarong klaro ang pagiging unworthy nya to be in his position. Believable talaga si Morales about what she said na binawasan ang kanyang retirement budget contrary to what Corona said na humihingi ng mas malaki. I believe yung mga nagretire na mga justice should know by now kung sinong nagsasabi ng totoo. If Morales is telling the truth, that leaves us a LIAR chief justice. And to note, Morales declared her dollar accounts sa SALN being a lesser justice na shall we say far better si Corona to interpret the SALN. No question this person is corrupt.

      Another thing, believable ba na hindi siya nangurakot o tumangggap ng pera considering the best corrupt president Arroyo appointed him and was with him during the whole time he was CJ? And the PAL case na pinanalo nya by just a flick of his finger?

He cannot move on with his defeat with Corona (remember losing your pride and the Hacienda)… He will continue to drag this nation to another drama with Corona until he finishes his term…

    In the end, his term will end while Corona will outlast him…

    Then, a case will be filed against Aquino by his political enemies… And when he gets arrested, he wont be in a wheelchair but in as traightjacket instead…

    Pinauso kasi nya, he would reap it in the end..

  • padrefaura

    actually, the prosecution can still present evidence. all they have to do is simply ask the impeachment court to allow them to present more witness based on an supervening event, which is the waiver of corona. pero hindi nila ginawa. bakit? 

    kasi alam nila na mabubuking na bloated lahat ng paratang nila kay corona. hindi nila in-expect na mag-wa-waiver sya. mahuhuli lahat ng pagsisinungaling at pag-iimbento nila.

  • becivilized

    From the ABS-CBN News posted on 03/28/2012 – “Corona impeachment cost reaches P6M”

    The House of Representatives and Senate sitting as an impeachment court, have already spent close to P6 million for the trial using taxpayers’ money for 34 days of the impeachment trial. This amount is equivalent to P176,471.00 per day. The last impeachment court hearing last Friday, May 25, 2012, was on its 42nd day. There will be another impeachment court hearings this coming Monday, Tuesday and most probably on Wednesday, an additional of 3 days which will total to 45 days. At P176,471.00 per day, the total amount that the impeachment trial cost for 45 days  is P7,941,195.00, which is close to P8 million.

    Given the fact that Ombudsman Carpio Morales and CJ Corona are now involved in deep loggerheads or in simple words in a deep quarrel or feud, we can expect another impeachment case will be filed against CJ Corona this coming December, in case the CJ will be acquitted. Then we, the taxpayers will again be burdened of the cost of another impeachment.

    The way I look at it, Ombudsman Carpio Morales will not sleep or let up (tantanan) what has already been started of the deep feud between her and the Chief Justice, as it already involves personal issues including moral conduct.

    So, I am personally appealing to the Senator-Judges that it would be best to “CONVICT” CJ Corona, to avoid another impeachment case/trial and save the taxpayers’ money which can be spent for another noble purpose like building additional public schools.

    A decision would be rendered after the closing oral arguments by the Defense and the Prosecution on Monday, or on Tuesday. It means that we might never know how Mr. Renato Corona accumulated so much wealth while he is working in the government. We would never find out the source of his gargantuan wealth. On his testimony, he never fulfilled his promise to account for all this questionable wealth up to the last cent. He also promised that in due time, he would explain everything about his false SALN. I did not hear anything from him but the illogical accusations of Mr. Aquino being vindictive because of Hacienda Luisita, his tirades against the Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales and that Mr. Aquino has a leftist adviser. Where are those promises by Mr. Renato Corona? If Mr. Renato Corona is acquitted by the IC, most Filipinos will be demoralized. They will never have trust in the competence of the Supreme Court of the Republic of the Philippines. Only those corrupt Filipinos will triumph!

    • albuster

      Don’t worry, the BIR and the Ombudsman are continuing to investigate and build cases against Corona. The waiver might just help the investigation and truly nail this SOB pretending to be a CJ. After his conviction, he is going to face serious criminal charges that already seem to have substantive evidence against him.

      • tra6Gpeche

        I suppose Filipinos will just have to trust and have faith in the Ombudsman and the BIR Chief.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YRHGKTVYNMTIBFJMBHHHHR7GNM Andy

      After Corona is impeached, criminal and civil cases can be filed against him, if warranted, with the Sandiganbayan by any complainant or by the Ombudsman. The search for justice does not end with Corona’s dismissal from the Supreme Court. He must account for his bank deposits and prove they are not ill-gotten.

      • tra6Gpeche

        If that happens, that would be a great thing for all honest and decent Filipinos.

    • KapitanBagwis

       If Corona is acquitted, expect chaos in the judicial system. If people no longer believe in the judicial system, they might take the law in their hands knowing that they might not get a fair judgement.

      • tra6Gpeche

        I would not be too sure about that, kabayan. In the Philippines, it’s better to expect the unexpected. Most of the time, logic does not work in the Philippines.

      • KapitanBagwis

        Yep, I am not sure but but we can expect that some people might just do that. Particularly the poor people who can not pay the litigation expenses.

      • tra6Gpeche

        That would be my expectation. However, I do not think, at this time, that Mr. Binay will surely become President of the Philippines in 2016. Before the death of Mrs. Corazon Aquino, no one even thought of Mr. Aquino becoming President of the Philippines.

Alam kasi NG MGA  188 CONGRESSMEN NA ITO  na WALA, ZIP, ZERO, NADA   ang kanliang mga paratang. They were just persuaded by this VENGEFUL PRESIDENT na very obvious naman at iyong DA-ANG MATUWID   daw  ang kanyang  prinsipyo. NATAKOT KASI   ang 188 miuns 4 + One Sen Drillon na magbomerang  itong ginawa ni Chief Justice  kaya, AYUN ayaw na nailang  tingnang ang WAIVER na ginawa ni Chief Justice. PERO  SA ELEKSYION NA DARATING  BOBO LANG  ang  opposition candidates  NA hindi  i-brought  up sa madlang  electorate people ) sa mga  tao na makaboboto kung  hindi nila i-challenge ang  mga  re-electionaista na 188 congressman at mga re-electionista na Senador to show  to the people that they  will sign a waiver  on their SALN  so the  electorate people  can see that   THEY TOO ( THE  188- 4 CONGRESSMAN AT  re-ELECTONIST HAD NOTHING TO HIDE.  I hope those leftist  groups wno really CLAMOR  FOR TRANSPARENCY  OF THE ELECTED GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS  ( although hindi ako sang-ayon sa kanilang prinsipyo)  ay they will challege all those running for government office to  sign a WAIVER  gaya sa  ginawa ni Chief Justice.

  • junolivo

    Lets see what happen next week as the defense rested its case. For me, the best decision for the impeachment court to come is CENSURE admonishing the CJ for offenses committed not impeachable by nature as there is no impeachable offense proven. Corona shall remain in office and continue to be a sarcasm in the president’s throat. The senate can not be a tool for the president’s vendetta (HLI issues) nor can be a haven for private dispute (BGEI issues).

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/NNAJQQUKFAB4DITXYZPSG26FYA Martin

  • JosephNess

    if the impeachment court has no more interest in pursuing the waiver, there are other government agencies that may use this for their investigation. The office of the Ombudsman may now continue their investigation, as well as the BIR…the media may help prove his dollar disclosure, by publishing the report on media, if indeed they wanted the people to know the truth about these dollar accounts…through media, they can look into the truth to the transactions of these 82 dollar bank accounts, do their paper trails based on what documents they can get from the banks and produce their own power point media presentation… that will be good for all…on the other hand, will this still be significant if the verdict is already known? 

    • willbillywilly

        true, but lawsuit will still depend if the ombudsman found a prima facie case against him…if he is found guilty only of non-disclosure but granted that all his wealth are legal, then, he can be free from criminal litigations…just hope so.

Kaya hindi dapat ma-confused si Senador Chez na biglang wala ng interesadong bigla sa signed waiver ni CJ Corona na mabukas sana sa lahat niyang accounts – including his dollar accounts. Pero lalabas at lalabas din ang katutuhanan. The pattern has never changed, it seems. One time there was something that was 45 that became 21 that eventually became 5. Now we have 82 that became 3 or 4. Haaay buhay. Pag walang magpaluko, wala naman segurong mangluluko, ano?

  • Moonworshipper

    Does Corona’s Sworn Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth (SALN), match his real assets, liabilities and net worth? 

    If it does, let the big cry baby go. If it doesn’t, remove the expert manipulator from the Supreme Court.

    Family reconciliation on national television doesn’t make Corona guilty, as neither does weeping openly in front of the nation make him innocent.

    • thadeothadeo

      Hi MW.  You won’t believe Corona’s lifestyle according to his narration, don’t you?  But my friends in the Court who know him personally tells me so.  He is a Bato genyo (bato means kuripot).  He is spendthrift it even translates in the Supreme Court day to day activities that sometimes make him admonish  the SC staff for too much overtime work knowing they would consume so much electricity.  Anyway, that’s just FYI.

      Yes, family reconciliation on TV does not mean anything for his case, but the event touched the hearts of many as this is Filipino culture.  Of course his bashers were turned off by the sight.  They won’t allow any quarters of mercy for the CJ as that would mean that Corona is not the scheming crook who took advantage of his position to rob the Basa’s of their money.

      • Rolly257

        kaya pala maraming nakupit…tipid ng tipid

      • Moonworshipper

        Good to hear from you, T2.
         
        The Basa-Corona family reconciliation made me soft-eyed as well. Nothing is as heartwarming as seeing families forgive one another.

        But that is not at issue here. Corona’s SALN is— which translates to the question of his integrity, probity and competence.

        Loving one’s family to death and providing for them by being kuripot doesn’t make one innocent of not listing all of his almost P200M in assets; or, of other dark secrets that may take not only 42 days to unravel by future investigation.

        Frugality doesn’t exempt anyone from truthful accountability to the nation he serves. More so, because he is the highest magistrate of the land. More so, the doubts and questions about his honesty like irksome flies attcking a decaying wound, won’t go away.

        His diabetes notwithstanding, Corona’s unbelievable excuse of not knowing how to reconcile his SALN with his real asset, liabilities and networth, despite being a banker and lawyer for forty years, and currently being Chief Justice, is simply adding insult to injury.

        The range of his capability to play on emotions shows how manipulative the man can be. He’s street smart no doubt; and can get what he wants. But that’s not what the nation wants.

        All we want now is the answer to one question: Is his SALN truthful and accurate or not?

  • cliff_castillo

    Any right-minded person will say Corona’s interpretation of the SALN is absurd.  What’s the use of the SALN if govt officials and employees are not required to include their foreign currency bank deposits in their SALN?  The only decision a right-minded senator-judge should make is Guilty!  Those who will vote for acquittal cannot be trusted and voters should take note of their names to make sure they don’t vote for them because they are in favor of corruption.

    The waiver Cheap Justice Corona presented back in the impeachment court, as we quote Sen. Enrile is already immaterial and irrelevant.  They can not act on it as the court is a hearer of facts and not a producer of evidence.

    Corona smacks of insincerity as he perfectly knows that both the defense and prosecution can not produce witnesses anymore to prove his claim in his bank deposits as they already rested their cases.  If he is sincere, in thought, words and actions, he should have presented evidences – bank books, bank statements, certifications or any other physical evidence to prove the actual deposits he maintains up to now.  Has he ever done one so far?

    His integrity, actions and words are all in question.  Why does he still keep his position in the Supreme Court?  He is up to something even more, isn’t he?

        You’re just another bunch of paid and stupid commenter.  Magkano ba bayad sa iyo and you keep on defending your benefactor kahit baluktot ang rason at pinaglalaban?

        “When the session resumed, Enrile told the Chief Justice that the court would only take “note of the waiver, but we can’t act on it.”“We can’t subpoena any other person mentioned here,” he said. “We’re not supposed to produce evidence for the defense and the prosecution … This court is not a producer of evidence. It’s a hearer of facts. It receives the evidence from the prosecution and the defense. On the basis of evidence by both sides, the court will evaluate and make a decision.””OMB Morales will not jeopardize her position if everything she produced and said in the impeachment court are hearsays.  May pinakita ba yang amo mong cheap justice na ebidensya?  Wala kundi puro salita at kasinungalingan lang!  Si Morales may mga papeles e si Corona?  Ni isang bank deposit slip walang dala!Kaya walang asenso ang Pilipinas dahil sa baluktot na prinsipyo ng parehas mo Estenieta.  Puro dakdak wala namang action kundi puro akusasyon at kasinungalingan mapagtakpan lang ang sarili.  Pustahan tayo sarili mong buhay walang asenso dahil wala kang ginawa kundi manisi sa gobyerno sa halip na kumilos at umaksyon para sa sarili!

      • sheldonbot

        AGAIN, the complaint is about his non-disclosure of assets. 

        Corona admitted to having $ 2.4 Million and P80 MIllion in the bank which he did not declare in his SALN. His alibi na these are confidential and “co-mingled” funds do not hold water. Assets pa rin yan. Any government employee knows that. Kay nakakapagtaka na ang CHIEF JUSTICE mismo hindi alam yan.

        The AMLC report submitted is solid evidence. A collation of reports submitted by the banks themselves.

        Corona wants us to take his word and nothing more. Is he crazy??? His credibility and character is already in question that is why he was impeached and now facing the Senate Impeachment Court.

        He could have summon for his bank records, banks certificates to prove his claims… He could have submitted them but he did not. 

        The Prosecution team was right not to fall into the trap Corona set by submitting his waiver at the very last minute. It will only cause unnecessary delay. They have proven that he did not declare all his assets.

      • violet55

        Now that Corona signed the waiver without any conditions so as not to delay the trial, is it not right and proper for Drilon and the remaining 184 congressmen to sign a waiver for transparency and accountability’s sake like what their boss in the Palace has been advocating?

    • BillyGregory

      Right.  And he must have those documents with him because he was able to cite figures in his own Powerpoint presentation.  Why then did he not present those docs rather than the waiver?

      Isn’t it in his interest to present those papers to exculpate himself?  Or were those figures just made up?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NYOKKWJDJKP6HLLGJ7TVFKQVPI Rene

    FCDA is absolute to private citizens but when you become a PUBLIC OFFICIAL, you are mandated by law to declare your assets, liabilities, and net worth under oath. Therefore, the right to confidentiality on dollar accounts is waived. Ayon kay Sen. Kiko; kung malinis ang pinanggalingan WHY NOT DECLARE IN THE SALN?

    The waiver is irrelevant now that the CJ already admitted that he has huge amount of dollar and peso deposits (in his name) not declared in his SALN. It’s now the job of the ombudsman to probe for ill-gotten wealth. P88 million + $2.4 million = more or less 200 million pesos!!! wow!

    walang pagsaway sa pag-abuso ng kapangyarihan….In this regard, I hope ma-ACQUIT

    ng prosecution because in my opinion, these were acquired without due process…. It doesn’t
    follow na kung may malaking dollar account, ninakaw na agad ..… Sa paggawa ng

      sumakay naman po kayo kaagad kay aleng miriam eh…

      sabi nyo rin po “hindi admissible sa court ang mga ebidensya ng prosecution because these were acquired without due process”… kung ganun po ang iyong pananaw, ibig nyo po bang sabihin na mas alam nyo ang batas kesa kay Senate President Enrile at iba pang senador?

      “sa pag gawa ng SALN, hindi mo naman kailangan i-include ang asset ng magulang at anak mo”… sino po ang may sabi nyan, si corona lang di po ba?

      sa P80 milyon pesos na inamin ni corona nasa kanyang pangalan, may ibang tao pa ba na nagpatunay na kanya nga yong ibang pera doon? meron ba siyang prenisentang dokumento para patunayan ito?

      ang tungkol naman sa $2.4M deposito sa bangko na kanya ding inamin na nasa kanyang pangalan, meron bang ibang tao na nagpatunay sa korte na kanya ang ibang pera doon? may dokumento ba si corona na prenisenta upang patunayan ito?

      ngayon, sana po mabasa nyo ang Article 11, Section 17 ng 1987 Philippine Constitution at Section 8 ng RA 6713 na naisabatas noong February 20, 1989.

      sabi ni corona na dahil sa foreign currency secrecy law (RA 6426 na naisabatas noong April 4, 1974) kaya di nya dineklara ang kanyang dollar accounts.

      ibig sabihin ni ginoong corona na di nya alam ang 1987 Philippine Constitution at RA 6713.

      kung ganyan ang Chief Justice ng Supreme Court ng Republika ng PIlipinas na walang alam sa batas at konstitusyon, sa tingin nyo po ba kailangan pa syang pagkatiwalaan ng bayan?

      kung ang pagpupumilit nyang gamitin ang bank secrecy law bilang kanyang panangga sa akusasyon sa kanya, di po ba ito ay paraan lang nya upang maiwasan ang pag deklara nya ng kanyang mga nakatagong dollar deposits?

        estenieta, ibig mo ba sabihin eh head of judiciary hindi na pwde litisin dahil sa check and balance na sinasabi mo? bakit kaya pinipilit ng mga taga corona na hacienda luisita ang dahilan eh alam nman nila ABNOY na mangyayari talaga ang pagpapamudmod sa lupain nila dahil sa CARP law!

        I am speaking in general terms na sana walang kahit isang tao na mag dominate sa tatlong sangay ng gobyerno. Mas maganda yung independent at hindi maiimpluwensiyahan ng isang sangay ang isang sangay, I am speaking in general terms, wala akong pinatatamaan….

        I believe in kakayahan ng mga Pilipino (Manny Pacquiao in boxing and Jessica Sanchez in singing…hehehe).. I fully agree sa karapatang pantao, pati na rin yung human right ni CJ Corona sa privacy, against self-incrimination and others…

        I believe in our Senators. However, I hope hindi naiimpluwensyahan ng partidong kinabibilangan  ang nagiging decision nila in important issues para mapanatili ang check and balance.

        In my opinion, impeachment is not as broad as determining if a person is fit to the position. May focus ang impeachment, It is about determining if the allegations/impeachable offense are true and valid. In my opinion, the prosecution failed to prove his guilt. So ACQUIT.

        Regardless whether or not you like a Senator or not, kailangan pa ring i-respeto being lawmaker of the land. Kaya hindi dapat ganyan ang tawag mo kay Sen. Mirriam. (Just a friendly advice)…

      • BE_JUST_and_FAIR

        Your comment is a good rebuttal. However, he also explained and site some provisions of laws kaya hindi niya nilagay sa SALN. Wala namang tao na magsasalita para sa sarili niyang ikakasira…. Yung statement niya ay pabor sa kanya, Thanks for your comment :-)

        AT tungkol sa dollar deposits..IN GOOD FAITH and hindi pag declare niya…. before he entered public service…that amount has been there…..at consistent siya sa hindi pagdeclare those deposits since he started serving the public…

        Besides…there is strict AND ABSOLUTE CONFIDENTIALITY NOT TO DECLARE FOREIGN DEPOSITS in accordance with the FCDA law…

        LET THEM AMEND THE LAW..so that the strict confidentially rule will be amended

      • willbillywilly

         then read this

        “Sec. 8. Secrecy of Foreign Currency Deposits All foreign currency
        deposits authorized under this Act, as amended by Presidential Decree
        No. 1035, as well as foreign currency deposits authorized under
        Presidential Decree No. 1034, are hereby declared as and considered of an absolutely confidential nature and, except upon the written permission of the depositors, in no instance shall such foreign currency deposits be examined, inquired
        or looked into by any person, government official, bureau or office
        whether judicial or administrative or private: Provided, however, that
        said foreign currency deposits shall be exempt from attachment,
        garnishment, or any other order or process of any court, legislative
        body, government agency or any administrative body whatsoever.”

        San dyan nakalagay explicitly na ipinagbabawal si Corona i-declare yun dollar accounts niya?  Ang nakalagay…examined, inquired or looked into…..asan yun cannot be declared?

      • BE_JUST_and_FAIR

        Will you declare what the law described as absolutely confidential in nature?… Kapag di-neclare mo sa SALN, hindi ba makikita at ma-eexamine yan ng ibang tao?… declaring is an action leading to that violation… Kailangan ang written permission ng depositor… therefore, in my opinion prerogative ni Chief Justice kung ide-declare niya o hindi ung foreign account nya. I think we really need to uphold the rule of this particular law because it has international financial impact in the Philippines.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/NWE7GEECPQ24KEBK2KH6HLWP44 Eric

         pls let us NOT FORGET that the entire supreme court has kept its SALN from public view for more than 15 years!! so WHO will examine those SALNS?? hah?? NO ONE!!  what an idiotic interpretation of the law.  Saying that foreign currency deposit act supersedes the SALN law is only for IDIOTS!! therefore CORONA IS AN IDIOT!! and he doesn’t deserve to be chief justice, not EVEN an associate justice…he deserves to be IN JAIL!!

      • BE_JUST_and_FAIR

        Are you sure walang nakakakita sa SALN kapag di-neclare mo? FYI, sina-submit po yan sa Human Resource Division, and definitely dadaan yan sa at least limang kamay bago mai-file… Well, I suggest you study first the hierarchy of laws… Determine the difference between a constitutional and legal provision with caviat vis-a-vis those without caviat… :-)

      at ngayong panahon ni pnoy may check ang balance ba kung ang supreme court ay may thief justice na nakaupo at nadoon para iligtas ang among nyang si gloria, may check and balance ba kung ang isang pinunong hukom ay kayang gumawa ng isang bagay na aakalain mong low life lang ang pwedeng gumawa yaon ay ang baguhin ang resulta ng kanilang enbanc session, noong nov. 18, 2011 nagbotohan ang mga mahistrado kung nakatupad si gloria sa tatlong kundisyon para ipatupad ang TRO laban sa Hold departure order ang resulta 9-6 hindi nakatupad si pandakekak pero dahil sa kababaan ng uri ng pagkatao ni cheap dog thief justice nagawa nyang baguhin ang resulta at gawin itong 10-5 na biglang sinasabing nakatupad daw si pandakekak sa talong kundisyunes, sagutin mo may check and balance ba?

         mas maganda ng magkaroon tayo ng bagong chief justice na walang katiyakan kung magiging independent o hindi kumpara sa isang thief justice na alam na natin kung sino ang pinagsisilbihan.

        yaong mga sinabing ko tungkol sa enbanc session pumunta ka sa supreme court kumuha ka ng kopya ng dissenting opinion ni sereno at kung sasabihin mong hearsay makipag appoint ka sa kanya kausapin mo sya dahil sya mismo ang sumulat ng opinyon nya

    • Matashari

      Don’t you think that the impeachment process is a wonderful display of the “check and balance” concept? Without congress, who will “check” the judiciary. Lahat naman ng nangyayari ngayon ay alinsunod sa ating constitution.

      I share your view that check and balance system is essential to our democracy. I just do not subscribe to the idea that a “guilty” verdict will result in the collapse of that system. Corona is not the judiciary.

      • BE_JUST_and_FAIR

        Well, if the Chief Justice will be convicted, do you think the President will not appoint his ally? If his ally will be the Chief Justice, do you think he will decide against the President? You are right, the Chief Justice is not the Judiciary… in the same way that the President is not the Executive… However, the President has supervision and control of all executive offices….I think the Chief Justice has control over judiciary… I hope my opinion is now clearer to you :-)

      • Matashari

        Two points:

        1. With all this drama hogging the country in the last 5 months, do you really think a political appointee will sail through? Eh si Domingo Lee nga di lumusot. At sa dami daming matitinong Filipino, do you think wala man lang ni isa na me dignidad, above politics at re-respetohin ng buong sambayanan.

        2. You brought up the President. Let’s suppose it’s the president being impeached then convicted and Binay then takes over. Does that mean the collapse of the system? Does that mean the executive is now under the control of the legislature or judiciary?

      • BE_JUST_and_FAIR

         1. there is always such possibility given the politics in our country.
        2. Vice President is elected, hindi katulad ng Chief Justice na appointed… kaya i think hindi comparable yung dalawa sa effect sa system ng check and balance :-)

    Now tell me if there are any allegations of ill gotten wealth and corrupt practices in the charges?

      • Renato Cozener

        Hearsay ba ung may mga documentary evidences na ipinakita si Morales compare kay Corona na puro salita, kasinungalian at paninira lang ang ginawa?  Nung hiningan sya ng bank statements o passbook may ipinakita ba siya?  Sinungaling lang talaga at magnanakaw si Corona kaya dapat lang siya na matanggal sa puwesto!  At ang issue eh hindi dineclare ni Thief Justice Corona ng buong-buo at totoo ang kanyang mga pera at ari-arian.  Mahirap bang intindihin yun?

      • sheldonbot

        That’s right. The defense introduced the ill-gotten wealth. They were warned by Enrile when they called Morales about this. Enrile also warned Corona when he was delivering his testimony.

        But once the ill-gotten wealth issue was introduced by the Defense themselves, they cannot retract these. That is the rule of court. Pwede nang gamitin yan as evidence against Corona.

      • thadeothadeo

        Still they will not vote on the issue of ill gotten wealth.  They cannot contradict their ruling.

      • antonioluna

         let us wait and see

      • thadeothadeo

        That is a Senate IC ruling.  JPE was not even keen on allowing Moral less to testify (including Hontiveros and Keh), because it may just touch on ill gotten wealth which will be stricken out.  Remember?

        But in exchange for Corona’s testimony, JPE granted the defense motion for the appearance of Moral less.

      • JosephNess

        right, that’s why this came out, and why get angry then, with anyone having their own opinion about this, it will not have bearing to the case anyway…

    • violet55

      Its very clear that their charge is only about “WHEN HE FAILED TO DISCLOSE TO THE PUBLIC HIS STATEMENT OF ASSETS, LIABILITIES, AND NET WORTH AS REQUIRED UNDER SEC. 17, ART. XI OF THE 1987 CONSTITUTION.”

      Its non-disclosure of the SALN not non-disclosure of properties or assets.  But even the Senators are in a quandary on how they will treat this even if they will tackle the properties and assets not included in the SALN because the law on submission of the SALN and how to fill it up properly is vague.

    • Handiong

      Don’t worry, the ill-gotten wealth and corrupt practices charges will come after the impeachment trial. The Ombudsman will see to that.

    • pololoy

        Umiikot tayo…Tama ka.  Di nga nakalagay sa FCDA na dapat i-declare. Tamang tama ka.  Di nga nakasulat.

        Pero sabi ni Corona…Hindi niya dineclare kasi pinipigilan siya ng batas na i-declare. If dineclare ni Corona ang kanyang dollar accounts, ay lalabag siya sa batas,  Lalabag siya sa FCDU Law!  Kahit daw gusto niya i-declare, eh pinipigilan siya ng batas.

        Ngayon….saan nga nakalagay sa FCDU Law na pinipigilan ANG DEPOSITOR sa pagdeclare ng dollar accounts niya?  Gaya ng sabi ni Corona.

        Ang absolute confidentiality ay para sa mga tao…other than the depositor.  But hindi ang depositor.  Kasi if kasama ang depositor…meaning kailangan pa ni Corona magpaalam sa sarili niya?

        Oo nga he has been consistent in not disclosing his dollar accounts ever since.  But does that make it LEGAL?  Ibig sabihin lang ever since, lumalabag na dati pa si Corona.

        Kahit pa in good faith.  Pag nagmamaneho ka ng sasakyan at aksidente ka nakasagasa…di ba pinaparusahan pa rin.  Pero di mo naman sinasadya…in good faith ka.  Di ka nga kakasuhan ng murder…Reckless Imprudence lang resulting to Bodily Injury.  Kahit na in good faith ka at di mo sinasadya….may nilabag ka pa rin na batas.

      What is your understanding of “an absolutely confidential nature”?  FYI, I got this from thesaurus(dot)com: Confidential, Part of Speech: adjective Definition: secret, Synonyms: arcane, backdoor, classified, closet, hush-hush, hushed, inside, intimate, off the record, private, privy.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/S4W5SH35C5W6LRS23WA6UEMAYM Brian

        That refers to third parties meaning persons aside from the depositor. 
        In no instance that a third person….but that person must first obtain a
        written permission of the depositor.

      here it is “except upon the written permission of the depositor, in no instance”
      .

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/S4W5SH35C5W6LRS23WA6UEMAYM Brian

        That refers to third parties meaning persons aside from the depositor.  In no instance that a third person….but that person must first obtain a written permission of the depositor.

    • thadeothadeo

      Saan nakalagay na required niyang ideclare kahit saan o sa SALN?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/S4W5SH35C5W6LRS23WA6UEMAYM Brian

        Ang rason ni Corona forced against his will siya to declare his dollar accounts because the Foreign Currency law is preventing him from declaring them. 

        The question therefore is where does it say in the law that prevents Corona from declaring in his SALN his dollar accounts.

      • thadeothadeo

        Does the Constitution provide the manner how SALNs can be filed?  NO. It says as maybe provided by law.  The FCDU and the bank Secrecy Law  provides confidentiality and protection to the depositor. 

         This is a legal question and only the courts can rule it out if Corona is guilty or not.  The Senate IC can not rule on that, because IT IS mere impeachment court.  They can oust an impeachable official, but they cannot decide if Corona is culpable of violation of the constitution.  If the IC makes that ruling, there will be a mistrial – for grave abuse of discretion, because the Senate has legislative powers, NO JUDICIAL POWERS, CAN NOT INTERPRET LAWS.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/S4W5SH35C5W6LRS23WA6UEMAYM Brian

        I am not arguing and contesting that the FCDU provides confidentiality and protection to the depositor.

        My question is where does it say explicitly that foreign currency accounts cannot be declared.  Corona said it is against the law to declare them.  Simple question is where in the law says declaring these accounts is illegal?

      • thadeothadeo

        Maybe you need further reading of the law.  Or maybe ask Google to interpret the provision for you.  What does absolute means to you?  Google that too.  What does “secrecy or confidentiality” mean?  Aren’t this as clear as  it can be?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/S4W5SH35C5W6LRS23WA6UEMAYM Brian

        Again…not contesting the definitions of ABSOLUTE, SECRECY OR CONFIDENTIALITY…but these are for third persons other than the depositor…where does it say nga that the depositor himself cannot declare his foreign currency?

        You haven’t pointed that out.

        Are you saying ABSOLUTE, SECRECY OR CONFIDENTIALITY against the depositor himself?

        Eh di lalabas for Corona to declare his dollar accounts, Corona needs a written permission from himself to declare his own dollar accounts?

        So kailangan ni Corona magpaalam sa sarili niya?

      • bbguevara

        The Senate per se has no judictial powers. But the Senate as an Impeachment Court has judicial powers. And the Senate can convict or acquit the respondent simply based on what is good for the country. Now, is it good for the country for the Impeachment Court to believe Corona’s interpretatation of the SALN law and FCDAct. That is the question?

    AMLC report details interesting dollar movements in Corona accounts

    Corona remitted US$350,000 abroad amid Xmas rush
    One transaction: a withdrawal of US$135,359.01 from his Philippine Savings Bank Dollar Account No. 0141024292 was made on December 12, 2011 – the very day of CJ Corona’s impeachment.
    Another transaction: a US$350,000 remittance (or money sent from the Philippines to overseas) which CJ Corona made on December 22, 2011 or just three days before Christmas last year.

    • fairtruth

      Ikaw naman…kung may hearing na yong bangko mo will bankrun tomorrow..di ka ba magwithdraw kaagad…Its the same as saying that when a news will from a malacanang insider that your account will be frozen…..so that immediately you will withdraw your funds and transfer to a safe fund..

      Mali ang pag-analisa mo sa ginawa ng prosecution, alam mo ba ang dahilan kaya hindi na sila nag cross Examination kay Corona. para di na magtagal pa ang usapan. dahil sa pag-amin ni Corona na may dollor account siya. the game is over na. yon lang ay sapat na para i convict si Corona. as per presiding officer reminded earlier,  even only one dollor or million dollor which not declare to his SALN that is considered betrayal  of public trust.

  • Handiong

    Corona said that he has only $2.4 million in his bank accounts. It’s because he has already remitted the bulk of his dollars to his account in Metropolitan Bank & Trust Company-New York.

    Since he has already given his waiver, the Ombudsman should now look into the bank accounts and trace the movements of his dollars with great certainty.

  • thadeothadeo

    Based on their body languages and their manifestations addressed most of the time to the prosecution and their witnesses, the following is my fearless forecast:

    For acquital:

    Miriam Santiago, Joker Arroyo, Bongbong Marcos, Chiz Escudero,  Gringo Honasan, Tito Sotto, Loren Legarda, Jinggoy Estrada, Bong Revilla, Manny Villar

    For conviction:

    Frank Drilon, Serge Osmena, Antonio Trillanes, Kiko Pangilinan, Pito Guingona, Edong Angara, Ping Lacson

    Uncertain:

    Pia and Allan Peter Cayetano, Koko Pimentel, Johnny Enrile, Lito Lapid, Ralph Recto

    This trend is also along partisanship.

    • TGM_ERICK

      The only thing is for me Recto is for acquittal.

      • thadeothadeo

        Could be.  Kung hindi kababayan, si Recto, sensible yan.  Di fanatic ng dilaw.

      • Ulipur

        Escudero, Legarda and Honasan will be worried about their chances of being re-elected if they vote for conviction.

        Recto is in a quandary. His wife is up for re-election as Gov of Batangas. If he votes for acquital he may save his wife but his own political existence in LP may be untenable.

        There may be some reasons why Jinggoy may go for acquital. His brother JV Ejercito is one reason.

        Koko is for acquital because he does not agree with Renato in the CJ interpretation of the disclosures of FCD and co-mingled funds.

        Pia may be concerned with the re-election of her brother, Alan.And that goes with Alan. He has to ascertain what may be the consequences if he vote for Acquittal.

        The above analysis, obviously, is premised that the general public’s mode is for Conviction.

        Anyway, there will be plenty of gnashing of teeth either way.

        This should not be a problem for those who do not have teeth.

        But the camp of Harvey Keh may be ready to provide sets of dentures to  the toothless supporters of Corona in case at least 16 senators vote for Conviction.
         

      • thadeothadeo

        Objectively speaking, the senators now realize that the public will accept whatever verdict is handed down.  And that gives them the courage to play statesmen and truly senators of the republic.  If they do, whatever they decide upon is okay with me.  

        Except for Trillanes and drilon who sticks out like a sore thumb for being so beholden to the man.

    The waiver with no condition given by CJ is too late!…in the beginning he should had given this but he choice the zigzag way then at the final day  he gave his no condition waiver  but was rejected. This only shows that the chief justice decision is flip-flopping depending on who will benefit the decision. If you are honest,has integrity and there is nothing to hide you should have given this on the first day  to show his sincerity.

        He is really guilty, he was forewarned that accepting the position of Chief Justice as midnight appointment is prohibited by the constitution but on his desire to be chief justice he accepted it. And to make it legal his  judges cohorts in the supreme court affirmed the legality of the issue just to serve the purpose.

        Supreme court of the land is what we are talking here…his integrity
        must be above all, coz they decide the life or death of the accused in different circumstances  and no agency of the government that you can run to after the decision. Your point above does not apply in this case.

    For me, Senator Chiz Escudero is just grandstanding in calling for the contending parties to make use of the opportunity at hand, which is the now unconditional waiver offered by the CJ. He very well knows that the prosecution have rested their case because they are fully convinced that their presented evidence and the testimony of the CJ himself is enough to convict him even without the actual scrutiny of his dollar deposit and other financial assets offered by the waiver. Also, it will just be unnecessarily delaying the proceedings which the Chief presiding Officer, Senate President JPE have put a limit to. Why force the issue?  If he still have doubts, then vote for acquittal. We cannot wait for you.

        Why wait for the law when they can just sign a waiver?  Don’t make that law, that is still in the air, an excuse.  Transparency in government need not have any law.  If politicians are honest enough and is not hiding anything, why the excuse?  I salute Escudero.  He has nothing to hide that’s why he’s this bold,  unlike Drilon and the 184 congressmen.
