Navotas lawmaker hits Corona guilty verdict

MANILA, Philippines – Navotas Representative Tobias Tiangco does not agree with the guilty verdict slapped on now ousted Chief Justice Renato Corona.

In an interview with Radyo Inquirer 990AM Thursday, Tiangco said the impeachment complaint was flawed in the first place.

The impeachment complaint, he pointed out, did not go through the correct process in the House of Representative, referring to the two hours it took to get 188 congressmen to sign it.

Tiangco also questioned the veracity of the pieces of evidence that were accepted by the impeachment court.

He cited the infamous “small lady” and “mister anonymous.” These spurious sources allegedly provided confidential documents to members of the prosecution.

The Navotas lawmaker lauded the not guilty votes of Senators Joker Arroyo, Miriam Defensor-Santiago, and Ferdinand Marcos Jr. who he believes are seasoned and sensible lawyers.

Tiangco said he supports the move to make the statements of assets, liabilities and net worth of congressmen and other government officials public.

  • ncells

    must really be depressing to be corona right now, everyone who is at his side all seem to be nuts.

  • Sydneyboy

    You look pitiful Mr Tiangco. Say goodbye to your dreams of becoming a senator.

  • Nobayan

    Naku Toby — yung BAD (Bongbong, Arroyo, Defensor) lang ang seasoned and sensible lawyers sa senado para sa iyo? At lahat ng iba gaya nila Angara, Drilon, Enrile, etc. puro mga unseasoned and insensible kasi bumoto sila for conviction? Teka, teka, parang may mali. Di kaya nahawa ka na  kay Madam Brenda? Sabay na kaya kayong pakonsulta. Alam mo ‘pre, mismo yung na-impeach tanggap na yung naging kapalaran niya, wag ka ng humirit pa at wala namang sustansiya yang mga palusot mo.  Buti pa asikasuhin mo na lang yang mga baha-baha diyan sa lugar mo at wag ka ng sumawsaw sa gawain ng senado.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/HGX7M7YPQPWU7CPWP2DUHW2E4M Jeremy

      Tama po asikasuhin nya yung baha-baha sa lugar nya, alisin nya mga basura sa kanal, yan ang tamang trabaho nya, hindi dapat sa congress. Pagka na ubos na yung basura.. isama nya na ang sarili nya sa basura.

  • sacrebleau

    Tiangco is brainless. I cannot see any revenue for political capital in speaking for Corona’s side after the verdict. Tiangco should’ve just kept quiet.

    Unless of course they have a plan to raise the ante by trying to bring down the gov’t. One epic fail after another.

  • OlliuQ

    This Cong. Tobias Tionggo este Tiangco is pang-pagulo it is already been decided by the Senate Impeachment Court and ex-CJ Corona own admission is clear evidence, but now he is coming back, again and again with technicalities… proof of evidence and admission of guilt weighs heavier than technicalities.

  • TamadCTURKAK

    Isang corrupt na congressman si Tobias Tiangco na dapat ma impeach din .

  • just_and_equitable

    Why should we care about the opinion of this congressman who could not even pronounce the word congressman properly???

      I agree. Good luck to Toby in next year’s election. Let’s see how his constituents in Navotas will judge him.

  • Ed Molina

    hoping siguro itong tiangco na ito na may kikitain syang limpak limpak after the impeachment, that’s why he decided not to sign the complaint and jumped ship the last minute. WRONG!!!

    how does it feel to be on the losing side mr. tiangco?

      it is more appropriate to call his name Too Bias tiyangco….

  • Paliwaweng

    Madami talaga ang engot sa mga matataas na sangay ng gobyerno, tulad nila Miriam, Joker, at Bongbong.
    Sa mga sumunod na hanay, andyan ang court adminis-”traitor” na si Midas at karamihan sa mga Justices of the Courts.
    Na lalong pinagtibay ng mga ilang kongresista tulad nila Suarez at ito ngang representante ng Navotas, si Tobias.

    Hindi nila alam o makita ang tama sa mali.

    Sa kabila ng mga nagdudumilat na katibayan na nagkasala ang kanilang “idol”.

  • Paliwaweng

    We should congratulate Corona for standing and facing at the witness stand.
    He proved the prosecutors and most of the Senator judges right.

    He helped them to get him out.

  • JosephNess

    pagpasensiyahan nyo na ang musmus na batang si toby, di nya pa alam ang tama at mali…kawawang bata…

  • Sarkasmos

    The Navotas lawmaker lauded the not guilty votes of Senators Joker
    Arroyo, Miriam Defensor-Santiago, and Ferdinand Marcos Jr. who he
    believes are seasoned and sensible lawyers.

    In the first place, Bongbong Marcos is not a lawyer. But even if he were not a lawyer, I’m sure he knows the meaning of “iconoclast”.

  • 808reader

    I think even the prosecutors knew at the onset that the articles of impeachment were hastily put together. They may also have realized that some of the evidence they presented were shaky. Eventually, these were all moot since it all came down to Article II, on whether or not the Chief Justice failed to fully disclose his peso and dollar accounts in his SALN. To which he admitted on national TV that he did not. Now, as to that being an impeachable offense, the constitution supports it, and besides, that issue should have been addressed at the beginning of the trial, not during and after the verdict.

  • usapan2

    Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.  Ganyan ang nangyari kay Corona. Mag-testify man siya o hindi sa impeachment ay guilty din ang verdict sa kanya.

  • Adam Palma

    This is hilarious! Hahahahahaha! Remember when Sen. Santiago asked if he knew what an iconoclast is? The same senator he lauds now also told him that at the end of the trial, Rep. Tiangco would either become the hero or the fool. Now that the trial is over, he is definitely not a hero.

  • oracle888

    Too bad the fool is not a Senator! But he keep barking. What a human scrap…

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/27G4BBGO4TT3COI2THUZTIPMBU Kaya

    To our countrymen from Navotas: Sana naman po di na siya manalo sa kahit anong election diyan sa inyo. Mukhang high sa pag-inom ng tubig sa Tullahan river, or pagsinghot ng patis.  Baluktot mag-isip e. Kala niya kapanipaniwala sinasabi niya.

  • indiots

    tiangco, asan ka ba? ni hindi na tiningnan ng mga senador ang ebendensyang galing sa little lady and mister anonimous.

    ang ginamit na batayan ng mga senador ay yong galing sa defense witnesses at sa bibig ni renato mismo.

  • PinoySaPusoAtDiwa

    I also take my hat off to Ex-CJ for taking the truth path, that is by admitting under oath that he did not declare 2.4MUSD and 80MPHP in his SALN!

  • Adam Palma

    Wisdom or foolishness? 

  • Adam Palma

    Which is an admission that there was indeed an error.
