Firecrackers don’t get cracking at Supreme Court

The fireworks they prepared remained unlit but they cheered their fallen idol until the end.

Supreme Court employees on Tuesday cheered, booed and hooted. But in the end, they walked away as they watched members of the Senate impeachment court vote to convict former Chief Justice Renato Corona for failing to report all of his assets in his statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN).

“We are sad. As in, we’re really sad. We feel badly about what happened but we also accept it,” said employee TY M. Buensalido, a court employee for the last eight years.

“Maybe this is what the Lord had intended. For those who voted to convict, I hope their conscience is clear. To the three who voted to acquit, we salute you,” she said.

More than a hundred high court employees, some of them wearing red shirts, gathered at the Supreme Court main lobby Tuesday afternoon to watch how the senators would vote.

Applause 16x for Santiago

They cheered the senator-judges who voted to acquit Corona, especially Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, who was applauded at least 16 times.

On the other hand, they booed Senator Franklin Drilon, whom Corona’s lawyers had accused of lawyering for the prosecution.

But as it became clear that the votes were in favor of conviction, some of the employees at the lobby began leaving. By the time Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla cast the vote that sealed Corona’s fate, half the seats were already empty.

“We know that this is a political decision. Our public should understand that this was a political decision because if it had been judicial, we would have won,” said Jojo Guerrero, president of the Supreme Court Employees Association.

‘Chief Justice is innocent’

“We know in our hearts, CJ is innocent. They’re convicting an innocent person,” he added.

Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, the most senior justice after Corona, was expected to be the acting Chief Justice until after President Benigno Aquino III shall have named a new Chief Justice.

Guerrero said he was not surprised with how the vote went but still the employees watched the voting because they wanted to hear the explanation of each senator for his or her vote.

In fact, the employees even cheered one senator who voted to convict—Senator Francis Escudero—when he called on other public officials to now waive the confidentiality of their bank accounts.

Guerrero said Manila court employees had prepared to set alight fireworks while Supreme Court employees had also wanted to celebrate if Corona had been acquitted.

“Maybe we should also celebrate because this is democracy. At least there won’t be much traffic here (in front of the Supreme Court). We also have a lot of red shirts to give away. We have so many,” he said.

Good for judiciary

Judge Meinrado Paredes of the Cebu Regional Trial Court said Corona’s conviction was good for the judiciary.

“The conviction will strengthen the judiciary because one rotten egg (is) out of the basket,” Paredes said. “This is also a triumph of the system of check and balance.”

But Negros Regional Trial Court Judge Franklin Demonteverde, president of the Philippine Judges Association, disagreed.

“Today is a sad day for the judiciary. Judicial independence has passed away,” Demonteverde said. “But we will abide by the decision of the impeachment court,” he said.

With Corona no longer at the Supreme Court, the budget of the judiciary might be further reduced, he added.

Coronas sad

In Tanauan City, hometown of the Chief Justice, Benedicto Corona, a cousin of his, said his family was sad with the verdict.

He said that they were already expecting that the Chief Justice would be convicted since it was a political game.

“Even if that happened (the conviction) we did not lose our respect for him. He fought for what he knows is right. Proof of this is that he did not resign,”  he said.

Nothing personal

Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. wished Corona and his family “all the very best.”

“From the very beginning, it was nothing personal,” Belmonte said. “Many of us took our oath before him, and I’m sorry it has come to this but we need this cathartic experience for the nation to move forward.”

The Speaker said the prosecutors were sad that the impeachment had taken its toll on Corona’s health.

He acknowledged that this was a “very sad chapter in his life” but that it should not be the end of things for the county’s 23rd Chief Justice who is only 63 years old.

Belmonte said this “triumph of the people” should make all public officials more responsible and truthful when reporting to the people.

No House celebration

Iloilo Representative Niel Tupas Jr., chief House prosecutor, said there would be no celebration as the House members won under a very difficult situation.

“The lesson learned here is the power of the people, the power of the sovereign will of the people,” Tupas said.

In Geneva, Justice Secretary Leila de Lima wasted no time in trumpeting the conviction of Corona before the United Nations Human Rights Council, where she reported on the country’s human rights situation.

Near the end of the periodic review of the Philippine human rights record, which was shortly after the final vote in the impeachment trial was cast, De Lima announced before representatives of UN member countries that the Philippine delegation was “quite ecstatic” about the major development in the country.

Unprecedented

De Lima said the verdict of the Senate impeachment court was “historic,” “unprecedented” and a “major development.”

“This is one sign of the Aquino [administration’s] seriousness in combating corruption,” she said during the session.

Renato Reyes, Bayan secretary general, who is in Geneva for the periodic review, said there was no visible reaction from the delegates to De Lima’s announcement.

In a statement, the Makati Business Club expressed the hope that the process that led to the senator-judges’ final decision against Corona “will lead to the strengthening and deepening of the commitment to build a culture of integrity.”

With Corona’s conviction, the Aquino administration no longer has an alibi in not speeding up the prosecution of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, the Kilusang Mayo Uno, a militant labor group, said.

The Trade Union Congress of the Philippines called on the government to quickly move to ease the wounds of divisiveness and politicking that characterized five months of trial.

Most lawyers said the conviction should be accepted. “We must respect the verdict because that is how democracy works,” said Vicente Joyas, Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) governor for Southern Luzon.

Victory for justice

Jose Flores Jr., a former IBP Quezon president, said the trial was a victory for justice and transparency. “Hopefully, it will pave the way for honesty in public service,” he said.

Lawyers interviewed from Lipa City in Batangas, Legazpi City in Albay and in Sta. Cruz, Marinduque also believed the verdict should be accepted.

Earl Bonachita, president of the IBP Cebu City chapter, said Corona’s conviction would send a strong message to the nation “that our institutions are working and that the check and balance of country is also working.”

In Iloilo, Msgr. Meliton Oso, director of the Social Action Center of the Jaro Archdiocese, called the conviction of the Chief Justice a triumph of truth and justice.

“Now the fight against corruption can be pursued more vigorously! The corrupt in the past and present administration must all be brought to court,” said Oso.

Corona’s conviction has given teeth to the SALN as a means to check the corrupt in government, according to Andres Hagad of the Negrenses for the Conviction of Corona.

“Justice has been served today. Let this be a lesson to us lawyers and judges … We are not here for the money nor for profit,” said Roy Perez, president of IBP-Leyte chapter.

Democracy at work

Governor Mujiv Hataman of the Acting Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao said the impeachment trial was “democracy at work, with the people and truth the real victors.”

Maguindanao Governor Esmael Mangudadatu said the verdict should be “an eye-opener for political leaders and workers in government to be transparent, aware of the fact, that public office is a public trust, and therefore, they should be accountable to the people.”

But Jojo Gonzales, a resident of Kauswagan town in Lanao del Norte, was watching the voting on the television when a power outage occurred early Tuesday afternoon.

  • tweakthor

    Sobra naman kayong mga SC employees (hindi lahat) … depensa kayo ng depensa sa isang taong walang ethical standards at walang delikadeza …. accepting a midnight appointment from a lameduck, corrupt and FAKE president. … ambition over what is proper and ethical which is giving the president-elect the option to choose the next CJ.

    Depensa kayo ng depensa sa isang taong binabaluktut ang interpretation of the FCDA to suit his predicament. Absolute confidentiality daw.  OO nah, in favor of the depositor of the account. Hindi maari sino mang 3rd party to pry or inquire into the account without the consent of the depositor. Yes, it is only the depositor who can say YES or NO to the examination of his account.  On that context and logic …. it is only the depositor, who is a public employee, who can declare his account in any document, like in the SALN without fear of violating the law.

    If Corona is your champion, the Filipino is in trouble!!!!!! paktay tayong lahat!!!!

    “We know that this is a political decision. Our public should understand that this was a political decision because if it had been judicial, we would have won,” said Jojo Guerrero, president of the Supreme Court Employees Association.

    since when does government employees have the right to comment in public???…guerrero, are you running for an elective office too???…..you are a public servant and should be impartial, at least in front of public…we, the taxpayers pay your salary…you should be fired!!!!….think before you open your mouth!!…and you work for the supreme court????….how sad….

        Why the SC staff are so cynical about the result of impeachment…. It is because they lost a lot or a loyalty to a man? 

    • Byst1nder

      Jojo Guerrero is an ignorant person, no one can disagree. Wala ba sya nung kaso ni Delsa Flores, ay sinangayunan ng Supreme Court, na pinamumunuan pa ni Corona? Isipin mo market stall lang na worth wala pa siguro half a million, while Corono hid more than 100 million pesos from his SALN?

    “Political Justice and Judicial Justice”, in an uncorrupt society, these two are intertwined. They are  to serve the same purpose as what it is meant to be. Whether you are poor, rich, uneducated, selfish, murderer, pillager, and the likes, we are all human beings and in the eye of the law we are to be judged based on what we did and evidence presented. Politicians are voted by the same people who uphold the law and we the people expect fair judgement whether you are Chief Justice or just a mere clerk of the supreme court.

    Now we see that theres still  hope  for the filipino nation, being away from the Philippines for 60 years and following the trial every night in the Filipino channel, (normaly early morning broadcast) the second time in my life to be proud of the Filipino people, First is when they brave the soldiers against marcos regime and now that majority of the Seanators vote with their conciense instead of political survival.

      same as mine, saw how the dictator Marcos regime was toppled down by the First People Power at Edsa. Never in my life will I forget the intense feeling at Edsa & with my  30 years living in the US saw how our higher officials were back to graft & corruptions. Kept on participating, expressing my views on CJ’s discussions with the perception that my opinion will shed light to others. Hope & pray that this will be the start of a new Philippines free from corruptions & crooks.

  • totoy_15

    These employees need to remember who they serve. You are servants of the people, not of the (former) chief justice !! We, who pay for your salary and all the perks you get therein, expect you to do your jobs with unbiased resolve. However, if you feel that your loyalties do lie with Corona, the prudent thing to do is resign your posts and fervently defend your cause, in the private sector. And I do hope you all do so, because there’s no place for partisan loyalties in government service.  Try to drill into your heads that you are public servants, not Corona defenders in government service. I expect Midas Marquez to be the first one out the door, for the sake of delicadeza, it that’s still practiced nowadays.

    Those employees in the Judiciary should have ignite their fire crackers because they now have a “Saint” in the name of Corona. Corona has to be crucified to minimize future grafters in the government……………. He is the warning against those who steals “people’s money.”

    I will cannonize him, if they want…..to….. He he he! Right or Wrong. No amount of prayer will save him from his punishment. Many of his actions and statements are tainted with lies and he has the tendency to weld his influence as Majistrate to suppress other people’s rights. Just look what he did to the Basa-Guidote Inc.’s money. He deposited it under his name. The rest of the Board members of that Corporation were kept in the dark on what Cristina Corona was doing. The Board members did not even know that there was a bidding. He he he. Where on earth do you sue a person who has died before hand. Cristina executed a Motion for Execution knowing that the other party was already dead. In fact, she “doctored” the date to make it appear that the person she sued was still alive. He he he. 

    On the biddng process, there was no notification among the board members. Anyway, I will leave the case for the future. Unfortunately, the tentacles of Corona is very much alive. He can still malign those who seeks justice/

    Kung ako ay may P 180 million pesos, sa interest land’ wait a minute. May 10 million pesos na palang kinita ang P34 million ng Basa-Guidote Inc. O, kung papayag ang mga dependence ng Basa-Guidote, di, ibulsa nalang ni Cristina ang P 10 million pesos na galing sa Interest. Anyway, she also has a share to the P 34 million. The Corona’s should know that time is ticking. Many of those who filed the Complaint are dead. Paano ba ito. Do the Corona’s have to delay some more on the case until all the original members dies?

      Bakit lantaran at very vocal ang mga emplaydo ng SC sa pag suporta sa kanilang bossing?  Hindi ba bawal ito? Paki explika mga taga Civil Service.  (Wala bang unyon sa SC at association ang naka parada? Aba, kapagka association of employees malamang controlado ito ng management)

  • Karabkatab

    Ito ang hamon ng bayan sa mga taga Supreme Court. Panahon na para mag higanti kayo. Mag file din kayo ng kaso sa mga kalaban ni Corona.  Kung “weder weder lang yan” attitude ang paiiralin, aba wala rin.  Kung talagang nasa panig kayo ng katutuhanan bakit hindi nyo ungkatin ang mga anomalya ng mga opisyales ng pamahalaan. Join the genuine war of eradicating corrupt practices in the government.  O baka naman hanggang personal benefits and incentives na tinatanggap nyo ang pinaglalaban nyo.

May oras pa manood ng trial at magcourt holiday pag-gusto nila, not to mention, magprayer rally every week. OVER STAFFED. Dapat bagsakan to ng six sigma para malaman optimum number ng employees na kailangan. Daming savings dyan.
    Isang magandang example si Midas Marquez di naman yata sya administrator kung hindi personal butler ni Corona.

    Masama ang loob ng mga empleyadong mga ito,kasama na ibang mga judges hangang sa probinsya,kasi ang pag convict kay Corona,kaakibat ng pag convict sa mga katiwaliang pinag gagawa nila.Alam ng lahat na pati janitor,mapa RTC to SC,kailangan pakimkiman mo ng dalawa hangang isang libo para mapabilis proseso ng papeles mo,o maisingit papeles mo.Hindi lang sa SC ito,pati na rin sa NBI at NSO,kung wala ka pang meryenda sa mga Secretary o Interpreters
    o Security Guards,hindi mapapansin pangalan mo o numero mo.Hihina na kita nila,wala na sideline.Sana simula na ito ng pagbabago,at ito dapat lang magsimula mula pinaka mababang empleyado.Hindi lang naman mga matataas na opisyal nangungurakot,pati kapwa mo mahirap na empleyado,sasamantalahin ka at ang oprtunidad.

    To Justice Carpio,
    There is a strong possibility that there is MAFIA in your office headed by Corona and at least 300 employees are the members. The Mafia preys on rich clients in the court as detailed by Mon Tulfo. These reds in your staff are your starting suspects. Time to open their SALNs too.

    • Andres_Bagumbayan

      At may mga balita din na mismong si Justice Antonio carpio ang “Godfather” ng MAFIA sa korte suprema…gumagalaw ang mga miyembro ng MAFIA sa pamamagitan ng law office na kung tawagin ay “The FIRM”…Ito ay itinayo nuong 1980 nila Justice Antonio Carpio,Pancho Villaraza,Avelino “nonong” Cruz na kaalyado ni BS aquino…
      Ang unang opisina nito ay sa LTA building,Perea Street,MAKATI na pag-aari ni first gentleman Mike Arroyo…dating magka-alyado ang the firm at mga arroyo.ngunit ang balita nuon ay may hindi pinagkasunduan ang dalawa kaya naghiwalay ng landas

      May mga balita din na sa sobrang impluwensiya ng “The firm” ay naiimpluwensiyahan nila ang hatol ng korte na pabor sa mga abogado ng The firm…Ito ay kalat na balita sa mga abogado,negosyante at malalaking tao sa ating lipunan…

  • samarutan

    The apparent strong  support for the disgraced midnight CJ by the Supreme Court employees is anchored not on any lofty or  noble consideration but for personal interest. It’s no secret that Corona has been generous not only to himself but also  to his subordinates in form of JDF and similar  bonuses. And SC employees felt  they have “utang na loob” to him. Pera pera lang talaga ang usapan.

    • MaySenseBa

      @samarutan:disqus  absolutely agreed.  Because their idol is indeed bereft of any lofty or noble principles.

      You are right, Willie Revillame = Renator Corona.

    Mga dapat paimbestigahan sa loob ng SC:
        1.  Saan nanggaling yung ipinambili ng mga red T-shirts ng mga empleado ? Baka pera ito ng taong bayan.
        2. Saan galing yung ipinambili ng fireworks ? Sa taong bayan ba? 
        3. Yung rental ng SUV  na P12,000 per day, totoo ba yun? Kung totoo,  Grabe naman  ang mahal nyang rental na yan. Ang sabi nung gumamit nyan, simple lang daw ang buhay nila. . .

    Additionally, kaugnay sa kampanya laban sa corruption:

       1. Paimbestigahan na rin yung may -ari ng SUV  na may pekeng license plate at hindi pala nakarehistro sa LTO.  Dapat maalisan na din  ng maskara yung mga  kasabwat nito sa LTO NA NAGBENTA NG PEKENG LICENSE PLATE. . .  Imbestigahan din yung mga taga CUSTOMS  na nag release nitong imported na SUV na ito, tignan kung nagbayad ng tamang buwis sa gobyerno. . .

      i doubt that, he should have resigned beforehand to save face…now he tainted his name. his testimony of the claims in the deposit of both dollar and peso account, which although was lesser than reported, still was factual that it does exist, was the final nail on his coffin…he himself dug his grave, due to his dishonesty…

      • White24

        I beg to disagree! Corona chose to fight to what had been labelled against him maliciously. If he resigned, it means he has 45 lots, 82 dollar account, 10 million – 12 million dollar deposit and etc etc… He fought and that’s the right thing he had gone… I reiterated my CONGRATULATIONS to RENATO CORONA..

        the lots and dollar accounts were dug up weeks after the call for resignation. if you observe the politics in surrounding asian countries, singapore, taiwan, even european countries, if the media or if talks about doubts of ones integrity in office is already on the hot seat, they resign…true that it was false and not proven as was stated, but nontheless, the fact that he LIED and deceived the people and the country thru it was still considered a FAULT. most of all HIM being the CHIEF MAGISTRATE, the one who has the highest position and authority to TRANSLATE the law…
        bottomline, 20 senators, found him deemed to step down for his faults against our constitution, in the LEGAL manner. if he would of resigned earlier, his name would not have been tainted

      • White24

        Thank you for that observation.. Lest you forget, we have a different cultural background. Let us not use other Asian nations as standard to be imposed in our own. We have our own way of looking at things, let us not always imitate what we have seen in other countries. Let us be different.
        Renato Corona is liable for concealing what must be disclosed. But in my humble reading on this issue, it was never the intention of Rene to really hide his dollars. If he wanted to hide it, he must use other names which is so common and so elementary for people who has the intention to be dishonest. But in his case it was not. He made use of his name. Rene Corona relied on the bank secrecy law,, he may be misinterpreted the law,, but it was done in good faith atleast in my observation, a lapse of judgement!
        I am happy he was convicted. For this we level up our standard of moral fitness. But i disagree with you in saying the 20 senators convicted Corona on legal manner,,, sorry but it was not the case. The 20 Senators voted to convict because they have political ambitions… that is a plain and simple truth. most of them are re-electionists,, they wanted to appear beautiful before public… :) And if there were senators who justified there votes in legal manner, they were Arroyo, Santiago and Marcos.. for i believe that misdeclaration of SALN is not an impeachable offense. The sad note was that impeachment is not a legal battle, it is political.

        that is the point there, regardless if what his intentions are, THE LAW IS THE LAW…not disclosing is still an offense, and any fault as a public official mostly to that degree is still  lying, and of all people, the chief magistrate to do such things. 
        “He made use of his name. Rene Corona relied on the bank secrecy law,, he may be misinterpreted the law”” this is NOT acceptable, he is the head, the chief of the rightful interpretation of the law and yet he is doing this? not acceptable, think about the lowly people that he could have also ruled against due to MISINTERPRETATION of the law. 
        “20 Senators voted to convict because they have political ambitions” 
        ok, lets be real, listen to enrile’s comments, now he is a lawman in his heydays and listen to his interpretation to the impeachment…be real…do we want a dishonest magistrate or a magistrate that MISINTERPRETS the law? i think i would rather not. 

        “Lest you forget, we have a different cultural background” this is our problem or even your problem, we are too backward with this, we have the AWA culture, PADRINO, culture…let us STOP that, it is not gonna do us good. a criminal is a criminal, he must answer the LAW of the land.

    And because of that mandate there is now accountability on declaration of SALN!

These people would have been ousted from their jobs by using taxpayers’ time, money & offices w/ their rallies for Corona in other countries.  It’s so disturbing that state judiciary employees utterly lack objectivity & professionalism by rabidly supporting CJ who brazenly misused the laws to serve his interests. Indeed, GMA & Corona and the Marcoses before them have greatly corrupted our institutions by totally stripping them of decency. I hope Corona’s ouster will usher in much needed change & restore the SC’s lost credibility.

    “We know that this is a political decision. Our public should understand that this was a political decision because if it had been judicial, we would have won,” said Jojo Guerrero, president of the Supreme Court Employees Association. So you know its a political decision then why did you allow yourselves to be used for political purposes? You are all government employees and should be non-partisan in the impeachment trial yet you wasted the resources of the government through your actions. Your boss is not Corona, your real boss are the people who pay your salaries. The new Chief Justice should look into your illegal activities. 

  • njtp8

    Maybe the supreme court employees do not want Corona convicted because they want a status quo. A lot of employees in SC do nothing but sit on their desk and you wonder why there are so much backlog of cases. They are afraid any change will force them to work properly and efficiently. If only we can weed out all the bad eggs in the judiciary employees and the “hoods in robes” alike.

    Marami palang fans si brainda sa SC. Saan kaya mas marami sa SC or sa mental hospital?

  • tamakajan

    I feel bad for our Justice department because they have taken side, It’s better for them to be neutral all the way rather hooting for someone who might they say is innocent.
    Ano na ang mangyayari sa departamentong ito? Kapag di nila gusto ang iluluklok di nila susuportahan? Kapag may pabor lang silang natatanggap doon lang nila gagawin ang kanilang tungkulin? Maling halimbawa ang pinakita nila, dapat siguro alisin nila sa kanilang isipan ang favoratism at magtrabaho na lang sila ng marangal.

    tama si Carpio, certified liar si Corono.

    Midas, saan kinuha yung pambili ng fireworks?  It’s about time to audit the whole SC…  

  • akramgolteb

    Teka teak, impeachment trial simula 2pm ng hapon eh oras ng trabaho yan ah! Mga SC employees nanood ng TV sa oras ng trabaho may video evidence pa. Grounds ito para sibakin lahat ng nakikita sa video.

  • archangel uriel

They’re convicting an innocent person,”….. mahiya ka nga jojo guerrero, supreme court employee ka….ganun ka kung magsasalita… innocente pa ang turing ninyo kay corona after what enrile said in his speech before his verdict…. dapat kayong dalawa ni midas maimbestigahan din ng coa….kaduda-duda ang mga ikinikilos ninyong mga supreme court employees na pabor kay corona…… ibig bang sabihin nito hindi lang si corona ang dapat na italsik dahil marami sa inyo ay tulad din niya…..

      Ang sabi ko nga kay Pnoy tangalin lahat yang nasa SC pati mga secretary dahil kasabwat yang mga yan sa bribery at kawalanghiyahan. itira nalang diyan yong mga house keeper mga kitchen workers. jonitors. yan nalang dapat matira diyan. matagal na panahon na nagpapapasasa yang mga yan sa kotong.

      Yep,dami cla dyan. If cj was exonerated tuloy ang ligaya pero dahil guilty at sipa na ……… kabado cla na baka magkasilipan sa bagong papalit. Paktay ang pangita.  :)

  • archangel uriel

    dapat si leila de lima ang gawin chief justice ng supreme court bago ito ibigay kay justice carpio next year…… para maimbestigahan ang funds (billions) na nasa supreme court……. it needs an outsider to do it……hindi kasi maimbestigahan ng “to be” chief justice na galing sa loob ng supreme court…… dahil sa ‘matagal na pagsasamahan ‘ nito…. 

  • lennonpaul

    look at these people of SC..maliwanag pa sa sikat ng araw ang ebidensya at paliwanag sa guilty vote..ganun pa rin sila!!  utak makasarili…

    • fojar

      Karamihan sa kanila ay co terminus ang appointment kay corona kaya ganun nalang ang suporta nila.

      • lennonpaul

         kaya pala..so i guess minority lang sila sa court employees.

  • aleksis

    Those SC employees who supported ex-CJ Corona must resign also!

    • BatangSingapore

      Lahat ng Congressman at mga politikong namumpa kay Corona ay dapat din mag resign.

    hahahaha, kung na acquit si Corona, laki ng bonus ng taga supreme court.   eh nausyami. hehehehe

  • watchdoglang

    I can understand why those people in the Sc fully support the former CJ  because they are so blinded from the deceits/untrue spirits and their minds were poisoned for so long that they could no longer distinguish right from wrong. The corruptions in the SC and our judicial system is a norm in everyday business that is why former CJ Corona’s supporters could not see any wrong doing. The bottom line here is the truth came out and came out from the mouth of the former CJ. If Corona’s defense did not present the OBM and CJ himself shut his mouth he could have been acquitted because the prosecution never really have a strong case or evidence but everything was put in place for the Filipino people who seeks the truth. Thank God for his intervention the truth prevailed. Amen.

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

      That because they are blind they can’t distinguish the wrong from correct, lies and truths I better challenge them to tender their “MASS RESIGNATIONS” for all who had shown their supports to the former CJ. The like of Adm and Spokesman Midas and other co-terminous employees in Supreme Court are obliged to resign ASAP. To avoid DELIKADEZA they don’t deserve to stay longer. They should give a fresh air to incoming CJ to be appointed soon. A new CJ can not work in good harmony with these people whose loyalty was not to the institution they working for but to their idol they considered as GOD…

    Here is a discovery I found out from Rappler about Jojo Guerrero, president of the Supreme Court Employees Association, he does not support Renato Corona’s impeachment but he supported former Chief Justice Hilario Davide’s impeachment. This time it’s obvious how scripted the wearing of “red” clothes for Corona but not for Davide.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/NSBFOVMZYLY5EYZKVZIHHVHBWI adanr

      Jojo Guerrero deserve some life style check… I wish he would pass and not found out receiving extra check..

    Sa tingin ko po mejo maalikabok na masyado sa loob ng SC na maging ang mga kawani dito ay hirap na rin makita ang tama sa mali, tiyak malaki ang epekto ng uri ng pamumuhay at pamamalakad ng dating cheap justice at ni jejemong midas. Ang dapat yata ay linisin na rin ang loob ng SC at ng matanggal ang maalikabok na utak at pamumuhay ng mga kawani nito at ng makita kung anong klaseng pamumuhay meron ang mga ito.

  • akimaxx

    If the SC continued the fireworks display after their boss Corona was convicted, the spirit of neutrality, justice and fairness must have been felt by the Filipinos. Represent your office as a center of truth and justice because you are the servants of the people.

  • For_the_good_of_man

    How can these Renato Corona believers not see that by not declaring P180M plus of assets on top of twisting the truth behind FCDA — they are clearly being bamboozled none other by Renato Corona, their idol, himself. Judge not with your heart alone hear the voice of reason and you’ll see wisdom blossom.

      money…., ”
      With Corona no longer at the Supreme Court, the budget of the judiciary might be further reduced, he added.”

    This shows that there is big money in the SC and removing Corona, they will be like a regular government employee.
