/ 08:30 PM February 09, 2012

MANILA, Philippines—Lead prosecutor Iloilo Representative Niel Tupas Jr. said on Thursday they were confident that with Article 2 alone, they can convict Chief Justice Renato Corona.

He said because of the developments, “we are very certain that on the basis of Article 2 alone, we will get a conviction.”

The prosecution panel will also trim down its witnesses to half and are preparing to finish tackling Article 2, which covers the alleged ill-gotten wealth of Justice Corona, by next week.

“As of now our decision is to present all [articles but] with fewer witnesses. By next week, we will have to reassess but there is a possibility that we will stop with Article 2,” he said.

“We are very confident the tide has certainly turned in favor of the prosecution,” he said.
