    The one who made the call to put the Ombudsman on the witness stand may have just inadvertently sunk the CJ. I mean, for trial lawyers, it's a rule that you don't put a witness on the stand or ask a witness questions unless you already know what he or she intends to say.

    I'm pretty sure Cuevas is giving the third degree to his co counsels now, especially Judd Roy (law dean, kuno).

    I raise a technical issue... Which may be irrelevant sa casi ni CJ... But relevant to us all...

    Granted na may constitutional basis si Ombudsman to do her work investigating CJ... Relevant ba malaman kung nauna ba nirequest ng Ombudsman from AMLAC yung records? Or was it AMLAC "volunteering" the records?

    kay CJ malamang it wont matter sa botohan... But for us private citizens... Who may happen to have some money....


    Lesson: don't cross the powers that be...

    The Ombudsman can investigate any goverment official on a mere "report". The law specifically says that the AMLAC may only investigate on a court order. The ombudsman however counters it may request 'assistance' from any goverment agency including AMLAC. Which takes precedent, the court order or the request 'assistance? Should the Ombudsman have gotten a court order first?

    Hopefully the BIR can't do the same to us lower citizens with such assistance...

    From what I know, the bank can or should notify the AMLAC if a depositor made transactions of 500K pesos or more in the said bank, especially if the said transaction is deemed by the bank as suspisious.

    As you've said the law mandate that office of the ombudsman can investigate on mere suspicion or report so we don't need to worry that BIR can do the same to us since they don't have the same mandate as the ombudsman...

    Saka I don't think AMLC illegally obtained the documents, can AMLC even obtain bank documents illegally, eh banks reports to them suspicious or P500k and more deposits...

    Yes. Per AMLA, the bank follows a set of rules to report transactions. The AMLAC doesnt have to make any request as these reports are automatic as long as it falls into the conditions set or if bank officials see anything suspicious.

Impeachment against CJ Corona..
