Corona to learn fate today

Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona will learn his fate today after prosecutors accused him of "deception of the highest order" and called for his sacking, as his historic four-month trial reached a climax.

The first Philippine SC justice to stand trial, Corona who is accused of hiding millions of dollars' worth of assets and other graft, claims they were cooked up by President Benigno Aquino to have him removed.

Prosecutors say Corona blocked graft-tainted ex-president Gloria Arroyo's prosecution and amassed $2.4 million in savings -- way above the limits of his salary and which he failed to declare as required by the constitution.

Senator-judges ready to hand down
verdict in ‘historic’ impeachment

MANILA -– Members of the Senate, sitting as impeachment court, are now ready to make their decision on the impeachment case of Chief Justice Renato Corona today after what they described an “enlightening” final oral arguments of both the prosecution and the defense panels yesterday.

“It’s very educational and enlightening,” Senator-judge Teofisto ‘TG’ Guingona III said after the court granted both sides one hour each to state their final arguments on the impeachment complaints against the chief justice.

Senator-judge Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. described the presentation of both sides as ‘very intelligent that requires us to listen well and pay attention to what has been said.”
