    Corona has severely damaged the reputation, credibility and independence of the Supreme Court by twisting the law to suit his own ends. He of all people has the least right to turn around and say that the impeachment complaint impinges on the Court's independence.

    No one is above the law. Not even the Chief Justice.

    Corona says.....

    "My silence does not mean anything more than caution and patience. Let no one mistake my silence as a sign of weakness... I have been quietly preparing and will be ready to take more determined steps in the coming days."



    ano kaya yung balak nyang gawin "in the coming days"?

    Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona impeached
    ANDREO C. CALONZO, GMA News December 12, 2011 7:42pm


    The House of Representatives on Monday night approved the impeachment of Chief Justice Renato Corona for alleged graft and corruption, culpable violation of the Constitution, and betrayal of public trust.

    In a matter of hours, 188 of 284 congressmen signed the verified complaint against Corona, which allows it to be transmitted directly to the Senate without undergoing House committee deliberations.


    Swift Action: How the House impeached Corona in a day2:30 p.m. – Members of the majority coalition gathered inside the Andaya Hall of the House of Representatives for a caucus. At the start of the meeting, House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. gave his opening statement. Majority Floor Leader Neptali Gonzales explained the House leadership’s stand on Chief Justice Renato Corona’s impeachment. Iloilo Rep. Niel Tupas Jr. gave a presentation on the articles of impeachment.

    4 p.m. – House majority members begin exiting the Andaya Hall. Deputy Speaker Jesus Crispin Remulla said members of the majority were asked to voluntarily sign the impeachment complaint against Corona. Bayan Muna Rep. Teodoro Casiño divulged that Corona is being impeached based on three offenses: betrayal of public trust, graft and corruption and culpable violation of the Constitution.

    4:40 p.m. – House majority ends caucus. Iloilo Rep. Niel Tupas Jr., House justice panel chair, enumerates articles of impeachment to the media, and revealed that more than 100 lawmakers have already signed the complaint. ACT Teachers’ party-list Rep. Antonio Tinio said congressmen lined up to sign the impeachment complaint. Read more Under House rules, an impeachment complaint has to be approved by one-third of all House members—in this case, 95 lawmakers—for it to be transmitted straight to the Senate for trial.

    Corona is widely associated with former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who is currently facing electoral sabotage charges in connection with alleged irregularities in the 2007 elections.

    House Majority Leader Neptali Gonzales said the House will transmit the impeachment complaint to the Senate on Tuesday, four days before the start of its Christmas recess.

    Deputy Speaker Arnulfo Fuentebella, who presided over the plenary session, proceeded to order the House secretary-general to transmit the complaint to the Senate despite opposition from House Minority Leader Edcel Lagman, who was questioning the swift action on the case.

    Lagman had earlier described the impeachment complaint as the "mother of all blackmails."

    Swift action

    The 57-page impeachment complaint was formally approved by the chamber just hours after the House majority discussed the grounds for Corona’s ouster in a caucus.

    House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. said majority lawmakers decided to impeach Corona on their own and not because of any orders from President Benigno Aquino III, who has been questioning the chief magistrate’s impartiality.

    “Hindi ito utos, but definitely, he [Aquino] is in favor of it. We can say that he had been talking about this but it is really our own doing but with his full support,” he said.

    The impeachment came on the same day Corona, at a flag ceremony at the Supreme Court, bared an alleged plan to oust him from office "by any means fair or foul." However, Corona vowed not to leave his post. His tenure ends in 2018.

    Corona’s 'offenses'

    Arroyo had appointed Corona to the high court in April 2002. A few days after the May 2010 presidential elections that Aquino won handily, and barely a month before she left office, Arroyo appointed Corona as chief justice, setting the stage for the high court's conflict with the executive branch.

    Corona once served as Mrs. Arroyo's spokesman and chief of staff when the latter was still vice president. When Mrs. Arroyo was catapulted to the presidency in 2001, Corona then assumed various posts — presidential chief of staff, presidential spokesperson, and acting executive secretary.

    CJ Corona is being placed in the same bind as Merci Gutierez; resign or you and your family will suffer public humiliation through a impeachment trial. Impeached Merci relented and quit before the trial. Will see if Corona sticks to his gun and how good is pandak's chosen one...
