Corona’s alleged walk out: was he physically sick of the impeachment court?

Most of us have come to expect pandemonium when it comes to the impeachment trials of our public officials and that is usually what we get. I must say that this is one for the books. We all knew that Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona’s appearance in his impeachment trial would be filled with drama. But what we didn’t expect after his long-winded testimony was the added twist in the end, right before Corona excused himself from the witness stand.

The Chief Magistrate of the Supreme Court had a simple explanation for excluding his dollar deposits from his statement of asset, liability and net worth. (SALN). His dollar account was covered by the Foreign Currency Deposit Republic Act 6426, which states that dollar accounts by individuals are absolutely confidential in nature. And his challenge to his accusers, all 189 Congressmen including Senator Franklin Drilon, is to sign a waiver similar to what he signed authorizing the disclosure of his dollar accounts.

According to Corona, if they do not sign the waiver allowing the disclosure of their own dollar accounts, then his interpretation of the dollar secrecy law will be proven correct – that they are not required by law to include their dollar accounts in their own SALN. The first to react negatively to this was none other than Senator Frank Drilon who branded Corona “pathetic” and confirmed that he wouldn’t sign the waiver. Drilon made no secret of the animosity he felt for the Chief Justice by saying “I won’t stoop down to his level”. One wonders why the Senator still hasn’t inhibited himself from being a judge in the impeachment court. Surely he cannot remain objective with his kind of attitude.

After Corona’s remarkable testimony, most of his detractors are still saying that his words are not enough to exonerate him. They are so predictable, indeed. I have been saying all along that Chief Justice Corona’s testimony will not be enough to satisfy his detractors. True enough, a lot of people are now saying that he needs to provide proof to support his statements. Never mind that that was exactly what the defense team was trying to do earlier in the presentation all while being repeatedly told that only Corona could shed light to all the allegations against him. We recall that it was even Presiding Officer Senator Juan Ponce Enrile who was impatiently dispensing earlier testimonies by defense witnesses saying that they are “irrelevant”. But now Senator Enrile is adamant that Corona has to be cross-examined immediately or else his three hour testimony will be stricken off the record; this despite Corona’s poor state of health on his first day.

Private prosecutor, Mario Bautista even denied forcing Corona to testify but the records show that the prosecution has been asking in every day of the trial when the defense team will present their client. When Corona was finally narrating his own defense, however, some of the members of the prosecution team could be seen visibly joking around. It seems they were not really interested in what Corona had to say. Similar attitudes of indifference from the anti-Corona mob was noted with others saying his narration was boring them. It’s as if these people can see his mouth move but they can’t hear him over the sound of their narrow-minded views.

And what’s with some people’s cynicism after Corona fell ill? Is it too difficult for Filipinos to believe that a person could be sick? Does one have to die just to prove that he was sick? What is wrong with our society? Majority of us do not even seem to have an ounce of compassion for a man who was visibly affected by months of persecution by his political enemies. Corona was practically begging for people to hear him out plead for his innocence but his detractors can only give him scornful jeers and more accusations that he is just faking his illness or doing an a la “GMA” supposedly so he can get away from being cross-examined by the prosecution.

It is so easy for Corona’s detractors to ridicule him without bothering to consider what he and his family must be going through. I wonder how these people will handle being under scrutiny by the government, the media and the public for months. I wonder how they would feel about the idea of having the full force of the Aquino government bearing down on them and turning their life upside down.

Yes, the Filipino people’s vindictiveness is in full view once again as they prejudge Corona even before the court does similar to how they prejudged Former President Ferdinand Marcos, Joseph Estrada and Gloria Arroyo even before the court rendered a “guilty” verdict. Past witch-hunts did not change the condition of the poor in the Philippines though. It just changed the names of public officials in power.

To be fair, I can understand why some people are disappointed. Corona’s alleged walk-out from the courtroom was unexpected. It seemed like a sign that he was fed up with the Kangaroo Court. I can understand that too. If I were in his shoes, I would be mad at the Senator Judges of the impeachment court as well. Anyone with half a brain should have thrown the baseless and badly-written impeachment complaints filed by Congress out the window even before the trial started. It was probably obvious to Corona that some Senators tolerated the violations of the prosecution because they were allied with the Aquino government. How can you actually respect a court that you perceive to be too biased against you? Corona being only human can be forgiven for thinking that some of the Senator Judges were going to convict him no matter what he said or did anyway.

Most of us have come to expect a circus show when we watch our politicians conduct their “business”. Sometimes it ends with the signature street revolution. Sometimes it ends tragically with someone’s death. For Corona it can end both ways. The Aquino government with the help of the Filipino people and their total disregard for Corona’s wellbeing have already convicted him even before the trial ended. That is the way the cookie crumbs in the Philippines.

Yep, the Rule of Yellow rears its ugly, merciless head… I’m surprised we never abolished our justice system, what with all the trials by media.

I once told a friend who expressed objection to the execution of three Pinoy drug mules in Red China some time ago that our real SC was the Court of Public Opinion, wherein good publicity enables one to get away with anything up to and even including murder. At this point, I might as well be right.

FYI, there are a lot of countries who use a comma as a decimal mark instead of the period while the period is used to separate numbers every 3 digits.

Assuming this is a localization mistake, I believe Nelson is located in Europe or Africa (or works for a company from those areas).

Though the rest of his argument fails, I think it’s ignorant to hit him on the uses of commas and periods. He’s just another schmuck who can’t communicate properly to his audience.

“It is so easy for Corona’s detractors to ridicule him without bothering to consider what he and his family must be going through.”

The average Pinoy thinks this way – as long as someone is perceived to be “evil”, it is okay to do evil things to that person and his family. Never mind the fact that when the same thing happens to that Pinoy, he will be asking for pity and call the people ridiculing him as agents of the Devil.

“The Chief Justice of the Republic of the Philippines wishes to be excused.” http://www.tribune.net.ph/ This is the line that CJ Corona is reported to have murmured before leaving the witness stand; so, since he wished “TO BE EXCUSED,” which means that he was respectfully requesting permission from the Impeachment Court to leave, I don’t think his leaving should be regarded as a “walk-out” nor as a gesture of open disapproval. One who opts to “walk-out,” of course, never asks “to be excused.” But CJ Corona pleaded to “be EXCUSED” for reasons that we know now (but were unaware then) of… Read more »

And I’m offended by that remark; that’s why I want to confront you and give you the opportunity to repeat those words to me face-to-face, one-on-one.

the veiled threat is probably related as well. after all, “under PNoy’s presidency, that sense of decency, of propriety have simply been abandoned and discarded.”

just as it is also PNoy’s fault that Corona is a scumbag.

espresso
Guest

Meriam-Webster defines scumbag as a dirty or despicable person. Amassing unexplained wealth (it is unexplained because your Chief doesn’t want to present documentary evidence to prove otherwise) that is disproportionate to one’s income qualifies one as dirty ergo a scumbag. Lying under oath is another but the first one is enough to prove the point.

Ahh… probably your bias disallowed you to hear what his counsel, Serafin Cuevas, said during the trial yesterday. They will not present documents to back up your Chief’s claims. Your Chief’s self-serving statements are more than enough.

Well, thing is I keep on repeating that burden of proof has now shifted to Corona and his minions. The prosecution side already presented verified documentary evidences about his unexplained wealth that is grossly disproportionate to his income. It’s now Corona and his minions turn to explain his side.

@espresso: You’re clearly missing the point here. Most on the verified documents presented by the prosecution are illegally obtained and based on hearsay.

From a commenter at the GMA News Website about Corona’s failure to take the witness stand this Wednesday: “Plan A: get sympathy of judges and the people, create animosity in the gov’t preparation: step 1: don’t eat in the afternoon to look haggard and sickly after step 4 2: emphasize to the crowd that you’re suffering from a disease 3. deliver with passion as much as possible your prepared speech to sway viewers and crowd. 4. make them believe that youre going to sign a waiver 5. create suspense and drama and test whether plan A is successful by walking… Read more »

“The Chief Justice of the Republic of the Philippines wishes to be excused.” -Corona

He was too ill to say he was not feeling well but healthy enough to be arrogant. What BS!

Months of trial by media, mein herr, can literally sicken any SOB. If you’re going down, why not take some of your tormentors with you? It makes sense, ja?

I am sad to hear our fellow pinoys behave in this nature. I really start to question how much stupid filipino drama tvs have degraded the minds of the pinoys. Everyone is shouting crucify him! when they know not what is the real issue.

its history repeating itself.

What happened was a real life threatening medical emergency. I know about hypoglycemia. My grandmother died because of complications from her diabetes. Some trolls bothering the last article of Benign0 showed their true colors. They showed sadistic glee in even lying about the Chief Justice. This shows what kind of people the master yellow race is. True Nutzis! Add the bow well movement 188. The spokesmen of the prosecution continued their black propaganda lies. They claimed that the Chief Justice deliberately walked out. The truth is he never left the premises of the senate. He was taken to the clinic… Read more »

Thank you very much for validating your vindictive, sadistic nature. This proves that all yellow trolls have criminal tendencies. It also is proof of the continuing demonization of CJ Corona and all others who are against the yellow mob.

So what have YOU done to be of help in this sad, sorry mob society?

mob society? para sa iyo siguro….

Daido Katsumi

Nope. The joke is on YOU then.

So it seems that you prefer a government whored by media, telling that everything is ok and never look forward for progress as a society but to be part of a MEDIOCRITY.

Hindi ka na nga makasagot e kasi you are being misled by media so it’s ok to put the people you mention to bars w/o any credible evidence against them. Then what about those who are in the present administration, huh? Utak-squatter ka talaga, bord. 😛

Daido Katsumi

Oh yeah, you prefer a mob society because you wanted to see BLOOD on those who are allegedly corrupt; worse, is to break the rules in order to get the truth.

You never realized the fact that corruption in the AFP have existed before GMA. And the very reason for Angelo Reyes’ suicide is the arrogance of Antonio Trillanes III. Does that make sense?

@bujad: Your last question is for the likes of you. Who told you that corruption is the root of all problems in our society? Anyhow, you don’t even know the meaning of ‘dysfunctional culture’. Am I right? It all started when Marcos left the country. I’ll call you an idiot if you say that Cory is better but in reality, she is far more worse. If you count ‘fighting against corruption’ can lead to progress, then I feel sorry for you. It’s more than that. We can never move on if that is your way of thinking. So IKAW naman,… Read more »

ang pagbabago na naganap noong nawala si marcos ay paurong, dahil ang mga iilang taong nakikinabang habang si marcos ay nakaabang din na sila ang hahalili kung sakaling bitawan ni marcos ang kanyang trono. ganoon din ang mga nakapaligid sa kanya, kumokuntra at kumukutya ngunit wala namang may kakayahan na pangalagaan ang trono tulad ng pangangalagan nabigay ni marcos. ikapat na siglo na ang nakaraan ang nakaraan, ang produkto sa pagbabago mula noon ay ang paglala ng sakit ng lipunan at isa doon ang talamak ng kurapsyon na unti unting sumanib sa pagbabagong kultura ng pilipinas. naitulong ko? simple lang… Read more »

@bujad: Sablay pa rin ang argument mo since you never cited Cory’s admin. Still, wrong again on corruption. It’s more than just stealing. It seems that you wanted supposed ‘corrupt’ officials like the people you’ve mentioned to be put behind bars yet it is ok for you on PNoy having the biggest pork barrel, his acts of bribery, and his staunch defiance on the rule of law. Isn’t that corruption. Wala ka talagang naitulong; it’s just the opposite. Do you want to teach your kids to vilify a person, even he is accused? To judge him/her because he was a… Read more »

@Daido

Useless makipagtalo kay bujad. Inamin na niyang utak-iskwater siya. They use emotions rather than reason when thinking, and are very narrow-minded and cannot accept opinions and views presented to them that are contrary to the views their yellow master has fed them. Even if those views and opinions are supported by logic and facts.

@bujad naalala ko tuloy ang pagpapatiwakal ni angelo… bago nya kalabitin ang gatilyo, siguro’y humingi siya ng tawad sa Panginoon… sa mga kasalanan nyang nagawa lalo sa pagayon lang sa agos ng katiwalaan sa gobyerno at pagiging tapat sa kanyang piniling amo. Are you saying that Corona should just kill himself? And you consider yourself someone with the moral high-ground around here?!? You are nuts! You are probably one of those Filipinos who said that Angelo Reyes was a coward for killing himself. Hinde kayo ma-satisfy talaga. I think if it were up to you, you’ll just drag Corona around… Read more »

Hehe, so ano ang gamot na iyon? Hindi corruption ang puno’t dulo ng problema sa bansa natin but the dysfunctional culture and mediocrity.

You have been misled by the media, believing that the people you mention are crooks and you just wanted them to be put behind bars because that is what you see on TV. Di ba katangahan iyon? Ang tanging lunas lang is to change your mindset. No wonder why you prefer a chaotic life. In short, TANGA ka.

tulad ng mga nakasulat sa pahinang ito, bumabatikos ng wala ding pagpapatibay kung di ang kanilang pang sariling pananaw at pang unawa sa sitwasyong nagaganap sa lipunan.

akala mo lang yon kaibigan.. ang inyong pananaw at hahakahaka ay mas masahol sa paglason ng kaisipan gamit ang paraan ng magkabagong teknolihiya. ang mga pinagpipilitan nyong katotohanan sa antas ng lipunan ay mga pangsariling pananaw nyo lamang. ang kabulukan sistemang inyo pinanangalandakan ay siya rin nyong pinagpipiyestahan.

@bujad: Strike two, wrong pa rin. Kung sino man ang nagkakalat ng haka-haka, baka ikaw iyon. At sa tingin mo kaya puro katotohanan ang sinasabi ng media? Mas maraming haka-haka dun kesa dito. So do your research first

Hindi ko alam ang sinasabi mong ‘bulok na sistema’; probably that is your version since you get it from the media. Sa tono ng pananalita mo, I think you’re an anarchic leftist. And leftists wanted to destroy this country from within.

Source from the record or it was all hearsay, idiot.

Well, Either of the sides have their lapses and doesn’t listen to what others have to say, they want to push what they think it’s right but actually it’s wrong. It’s like a noontime show. We are just like a laughing stock. No wonder other countries doesn’t respect and trust our country, because of our government.

I visited the GMA news website and urge you guys to do the same. You will see firsthand how really vicious the yellow mob is in attacking the CJ with black propaganda lies. See the comments posted below the news bulletins.

I have never seen such gross inhumanity and very apparent human rights violations. The man is already sick. The extreme tension brought about by the continuous demonization triggered his condition.

God forbid. Should CJ Corona die before his time… He will be a martyr and his blood will be in the hands of BS Aquino and his yellow mob.

1. walang doctor na gagawa ng fake na medical certificate– lisensya nya ang nakataya

2.simple lang, sign the waiver para mapakita sa sambayan ang katotohanan. ang susi sa katotohanan ay ang pirma ng mga kongresista at kay drilon.

3. mahirap ba magbigay ng pirma???
