DID YOU KNOW: Estrada impeachment trial
On Dec. 7, 2000, the impeachment trial against President Joseph Estrada began. A first in Philippine history, it ended in January 2001 when House prosecutors withdrew from the trial. Millions immediately assembled on Edsa, leading to a second People Power revolution that led to Estrada’s ouster. —MARIELLE MEDINA, INQUIRER RESEARCH
