Corona clears Supreme Court office, mends fences with media

Ousted Chief Justice Renato Corona on Wednesday tried to mend fences with the media who may have become angry or hostile because of his refusal to grant interviews during his impeachment trial at the Senate.

Corona on Wednesday met briefly with the journalists covering the justice beat when he and his family—his wife, Cristina, and daughter, Carla—went to the Supreme Court to cart away his papers and personal belongings.

“Thanks to you all,” a smiling Corona greeted the journalists who went to see him at his old office.

“I’m sorry if I appeared not to be cooperative at times. Rest assured that there was an urge for me to accommodate you, but the circumstances would not allow me,” he said gravely.

“I ask for your forgiveness. I tried my best to be accommodating,” he said in a mixture of English and Filipino.

Corona gamely posed with reporters who requested for a short photo session with him.

His wife who was wearing a black shirt emblazoned with the words “Not Guilty” and “Acquit” also joined the group of journalists.

Corona said he just realized that it was not that easy to move his stuff out of the Supreme Court where he had held office since 2002 when former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo appointed him associate justice.

“It’s like moving to a new house. I have been here for the last 10 years,” he said.

To a suggestion that he could just raffle off one of the paintings in his office to the members of the media, Corona said with a laugh: “I don’t have a job anymore. I will just sell it to you in ‘four gives.’”

The ousted Chief Justice said his health has been improving although he still has to continue taking maintenance medicines.

“I’m healthy enough to be discharged from the hospital,” he said.

    Hey Mr. Crown, you forgot to take all your trash with you.  You left your protege and  fcuk buddy  Midaz Marquez. Don’t worry the Ombudsman will take care of your man toy. He too will need the services of your brigade of lawyers soon. He needs to explain why he dipped his fingers in the cookie jar compliments of WB.

  • Barak_O

    bad acting!

    take two

  • blainz

    Good riddance… and please take that stooge Midas with you before you close the door.

    • doublecross

       sana nga mapaalis din si ms. midas, dhl PUTIK siya sa SC ngayon….at nang manalo ako sa pustahan namin!

  • Renato_SUPOT_Pacifico

    sa pilipinas kakasuhan ka at ilalathala na questionable ang pera mo sa national media pero walang ‘freeze assets’ na gagawin.

    puro moro-moro lang at siraan ng pangalan dahil karamihan ng politico magnanakaw.

    kung totoo nga na may ill-gotten wealth yang si Corona bakit hindi ma-ifreeze ang assets nya ?

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/CFZ2Q7RFJ6PWRYMM3NJ7JB4KSE Dynamic

      It’s a mickey mouse thing who likes to play hide and seek…

  • quirinomayer

    Atong, di ba  noong second year anniversary ng midnight appointment mo sinabi mo “See you next year”? Bat ka nag-impake? Saan na yong kayabangmo?

    • Ulipur

      Tulad rin ng mga sinabi niya:

      I know my Law.

      Pwede lang ninyo akong maalis sa aking pwesto kung papatayin ninyo ako.

      • juantamadnatamad

        Eh sino yung nag linis ng mesa niya sa SC?

  • UsoUso82

    UsoUso82,
    Adios Senor Corona! You have shown how this country loses its SALN ity today. Political leaders coud not support the good that it will provide to honest men in public service. Pinoys could swallow the CDF’s of million pesos but will not see the truth of how the political systems work.
    Kawawa ang next-gen Pinoys with this kind of Yuppies. Pa-pobre ng tuma-tanda!

  • panaloangtotoo2

    Marami ang matino na taga-Media. Yong kunwari galit kay Thief Justice ay yong di naambunan. Pero itanong mo sa mga bayaran nyang lapdog media personalities, di ba papuri to the max and high heavens ang ginawa nilang pagdepensa kay Crookna?

  • PutingAgila

    Who said Corona is  sick?

    • doublecross

       malingering illness is also a lied health….kaya KARMA na yan.

    • Ulipur

      Ang Hypogclycemia ay corrected agad just by a can of regular soda within 15 minutes.

      Kaya yaong lahat ng inarte niya noon ay in aid of deception.

       

    • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

      Find out what diabetes is.

      Find out how hyperglycemia and hyper hypoglycemia affects a diabetic person, how serious it is, what triggers it, how often, how it is corrected and how soon is recuperation.

      Just saying….

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/HFYQYPW6MLJC7OLGLCJRS4IAC4 Regd

        Fight out how to feign illness. I will offer my services.

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        Does he have diabetes or doesn’t he. Can you prove feigning illness or can’t you.

    • D L

      Just wait for 40 years to find out.

  • Ommm

    ” His wife who was wearing a black shirt emblazoned with the words “Not Guilty” and “Acquit” also joined the group of journalists.”

    Now it’s obvious Corona dresses his wife in Ukay-Ukay while hoarding millions in secret accounts… 

    • doublecross

       hehehe….panakip butas lang yan…sino ang maniwala sa kanila ngayon. kung dumikit sa katawan mo ng kasinungalingan, habang buhay na yan at di na maiiba. at bkit sa media lang siya mag=sorry….what for? taong bayan ang humusga sa kanya…

  • Tranquililing

    • Russell Ariola

      Oo nga naman. Tas wala pala kayong kinita sa impeachment kasi PRO BONO ang serbisyo nyo. LoL !

  • KarmaGMA

    the war isn’t over yet corona, u have the face the ombudsman and the BIR ….

    • William Tyre

      and this time the regular courts will determine the case on its merits and evidence, not with popular sentiment.

  • 1tiago2bangkilan3

    kala ko may sakit ito? in the pink of health naman pala.

  • Htee

    Ang susunod na pagtutuunan nya ng pansin ay ang pagiging speaker sa mga eskwelahan….

    Nanay ko poooo….manglalason pa rin sya ng mga murang kaisipan….

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/HFYQYPW6MLJC7OLGLCJRS4IAC4 Regd

    Teka ba’t andyan yan? Anong nangyari sa sinabi nya na ‘PATAYIN MUNA NILA AKO BAGO MAPA-ALIS’?
    Naghihintay kami na matupad yung pangako.

    • Russell Ariola

      Asa ka pa eh Chief ng mga pasaway yan eh. =P

  • Russell Ariola

    Four gives daw oww!

    Milyones dolyares ang deposito nya tapos papo-four-gives pa?

    Mukhang pera talaga!

    Ginang Tanodbayan tapusin na po yung folder ni Corona at nang masakdal at mapiit na.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MZOKC6X7Q52Z4E5VLYNB7GF72Y Kaloy

    Corona should have done this press media accommodating gesture before and during his impeachment period.

    Huli man daw at magaling, “convicted pa rin”.

    For mrs Corona: Ma’am tapos na po ang laban PART 1. Peace na lang po muna.

    Magagamit ninyo yang T-shirt ninyo sa susunod na laban sa BIR at Ombudsamn. Good luck!

  • doublecross

    corona…tsk…tsk…tsk…hugasan mo man ang kamay mo, kadiri ka pa rin, dahil tatak magnanakaw ang pamilya mo at lahi mo!

  • aim_up

    Lay low ka na lang, Mr. Corona.

    And what is the reason why he should repair his relationship with the media:  what does he need the media for . . . may balak pa ba siyang mag hayag ng mga opinion niya sa dyario.

    Hayyyy naku, Mr. Corona, you have zero credibility . . . please don’t make any more pronouncements, sayang lang.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/OODGNEQ7QD4MPKVKSR6CW6T3HA Carrmela

    There is a silent majority that supports CJ CORONA. We will support your advocacies. WAIVER, WAIVER, WAIVER !!!!!!

    • sojusakitofu

      Yes he still has supporters but definitely they are not majority.  Hope those people claiming to be his supporters would support him all the way to the jail coz co-mingling with other crooks in the can is not a walk in the park for a high life filcher.

    • Jerry_SeinfeId

      Majority ng nawalan ng trabaho sa Supreme Court dahil sa pagkapatalsik kay Renato Corona ay sumusuporta sa kanya… sa pag-asang babalatuhan sila ni Renato.

  • Jerry_SeinfeId

    Thanks to you all — for having let me accumulate $2,400,000.00 and P80,000,000.00 while serving you as Chief Justice of Gloria Arroyo.

    bat si corona lang pede maghamon? let’s raise the bet, papirmahin din ng waiver ang lahat ng religious organizations, unang una na INC, CBCP, El Shaddai..etc ng magkaalaman na kung pano nila gingamit ung abuloy na pinaghirapan ng mga pobre nilang miyembro habang ung mga lider nasa palasyo at mga mansion

  • 4kingdaddy

    corona had just been crowned with thorns….we are now waiting for the carrying of the cross and the crucifixion….

  • Rizal Bonifacio

    He he he magtanim ka na lang ng kamote, wa epek yang mga gimik mo. Lagot ka kay Ombudsman. kaw na ang susunod. Baka maghimas ka ng malamig na rehas ng bakal:-)))

  • concern_people

    it’s over!let’s move on.. Who are we to judge the person that we never know from his childhood. if we are only looking for the wrongdoings of CJ Corona..how about our wrong doings?we can justify our wrongdoings by ourselves just as what CJ Corona did in the impeachment court. Don’t let ourselves be divisive just because of one issue & contribute to a large scale divisiveness in our country. Don’t put yourselves in the skin of our politician. After the impeachment they are back now to their work. What we’ve seen & heard in the impeachment court is only a propaganda, to let people focus in the impeachment proceedings & give chance the people to hear both the defense & the prosecution to defend their clients; to balance all the evidence presented in the court but some of us confronted this as a PRO or ANTI..don’t complicate ourselves & be used by some politician or individual who have their own personal interest. Let’s work together as a citizen and show the world that we are far more competitive than what they think..

  • virgoyap

    After the sad goodbye from the SC it’s much better for you Corona to remain silent and mind for your health. And you will live (rest) in peace. 

    • FernandoBusi

      He can’t live in peace hahabulin pa rin sya ng government hes still under investigation by the BIR so the right move is keep on his call for transparency for everyone

  • denzel22

    biased reporting. Is there a need to say that GMA appointed him on this date? Everybody knows that he was appointed by GMA. Why can’ you just say “since he was appointed as assoc justice”. There is always malice when GMA is attached to a person. Much more when the reporter said that the subject mend fences with media. Parang sinabi niyo na na inaway niya kayo dahil di niya kayo pinauunlakan ng interview? or sumama loob niyo sa kanya dahil di kayo napagbigyan? Common, be responsible on how you report. O baka kailangan niyo rin ng envelope, gaya ng karamihan diyan

    hay naku mga kulay dilaw pati nagkocomment dito. wala pong naprove na-ill gotten ang pera ni Chief Justice. DI po nila napatunayan yon kase wala naman talaga silang ebidensya. Pulitika lang kaya napaalis si CJ. Mahiya kayo sa balat nyo sa pag-accuse sa taong hindi nyo naman kakilala as if ang Noble talaga ng mga taong nag-convict sa kanya. THE NERVE talaga ng 20 BUY-ASSED senators and you their minions! 40 years pong nagtrabaho si CJ at nag-private practice din naman po sya bilang magaling na lawyer, di rin sya galing sa mahirtap na pamilya kaya wag magbintang na nagnakaw sya gayong hindi naman po ito ipinaratang at lalung hindi napatunayan! Sa mga Anonymous at Small Lady lang naman kayo magaling Pwe!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_BNIYEYUFMFU3MMHIZNCSHKFEPI Erick Su

      as a chief justice, he must be like ceasar’s wife… he must not only be honest but must always appear honest…meaning he must be above suspicion…it does not matter who instigated the impeachment or the congressmen are more corrupt because they are not the chief justice who heads the highest court of the land…i hope you get what i mean…
