MANILA, Philippines – Senator-judge Manny Villar voted for the conviction of Chief Justice Renato Corona.

Villar said Corona’s interpretation of the law in not declaring his $2.4 million and P80 million bank deposits were enough reason to dismiss him from office.

Despite voting for the chief justice’s removal from office, Villar maintained that he believed Corona was a good man “pero naniniwala ako na dapat pantay-pantay ang implementasyon ng batas kaya ako ay bumoto ng guilty.”

       Kaya pala kulang na lang ma-tae sa pag-boto niya ng conviction para kay Corona. Hirap na hirap sa boto niya kala mo ina-almoranas.

    Sen Villar was disoriented, to say the least, when he casted his vote. Akala yata nasa miting de abanse ng Mrs. niya na ngayon palang ay nangangampanya na para sa Senado. Remember the on-going TV ads? Kadiri talaga si Manny Villar. Sobrang trapo. Pati ba naman Impeachment proceedings ginamit para iangat ang sarili. Mantaki nga naman, ang dami ng nakikinig. Magisin na tayo mga kabayan. Di na dapat binoboto ang mga katulad niya.

    i really think villar was supposed to cast a vote for acquittal, but changed his mind once the votes were overwhelmingly for conviction.  he looked like he was making up a speech right then and there!  tapos di natiis mag-campaign para sa sarili!  such a trapo! pero tapos na ang impeachment. time to move on. regardless of stand, let’s work for the benefit of the philippines! mabuhay kayong lahat!!!

    AS USUAL. VILLAR SPEWS HIS BUSINESS MIND….

  • VeryDisgusted2

    I will never cast vote for this man in the election. He is a confused person but an opportunist at the same time. He said, ” I believe Corona is a good person”, but he voted against him. Potentially, a traitor-type.

    Like Corona, he is psychology unfit to hold a high position. He seems to have a martyr complex and never forget accusations hurled against him during the last election.

    today’s last trial means a lot to all Filipinos. let us all remember the players of this trial as we see them right with our own eyes who the people in the government are true to us.

    Look who’s talking? si Mr. C5 at Taga! hypocrisy at it’s best! kung tutuusin mas kurakot pa ang mga senatongs na yan kaysa kay Corona, kung kurakot nga talaga si Corona. Nagmamalinis lang ang mga yan lalo na yung mga nag vote ng guilty verdict kay Cornona. Dapat isa-isahin din ang mga Tongressmen at mga senatongs para magkaalaman kung sino ang pinakakurakot sa kanila unahin si Tupaz na numero unong kurakot………….haaaay! kunyari ang mga epokrito! God save the Philippines!

      Mag-almusal ka muna o kundi iinum ka muna ng kape. Parang mainit pa rin ang ulo mo at iba na yong pinagsabi mo tungkol na sa mga tongressmen at binanggit mo pa si Cong. Tupaz. Hindi ka ba nagdadalang tao baka pagkatapus ang mukha ng anak mo’y kagaya ni Niel sa subra mong galit sa kanya. Relaks ka lang dyan. Kung kayo’y napikon dahil natalo yong “bossing” mong si TJ hayaan mo at baka sa sunod hindi ka na ma-”wrong number” at makuha muna ang tama kung sino talaga ang dapat mong kampihan, okey?

    We need business moguls like Villar to run the country on a “profitable” note but I question his character and integrity. 

    We need a PNoy, Gibo, Villar, Enrile combo to become the president.

    I commend all senator judges who voted guilty except for Villar.I believe he changed his verdict from not guilty to guilty right there and then, the moment he realized that majority of his colleagues have voted for the latter.Listen to his statement.It’s ill-prepared and disastrously delivered. His arguments are clearly bent towards acquittal yet he voted for guilty. Jumping on the bandwagon? Balimbing.Naku, Villa.Katandang tao mo na, nagpaapekto ka pa sa peer pressure?hehehehe.Nasira tuloy respeto sa yo, gaano man kakonti, wahahaha.
