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.
