SUPREME COURT CHIEF JUSTICE RENATO CORONA IMPEACHED


Today, Monday, December 12, 2011 members of the majority coalition at the House of Representatives formally impeached Chief Justice Renato Corona.

Iloilo Rep. Niel Tupas Jr., chairperson of the House justice panel which prepared the case, said a total of 188 members of the majority signed the complaint during a caucus earlier this afternoon. 

The figure is more than the required number for the case to be transmitted directly to the Senate.

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 able to be transmitted straight to the Senate for trial. 


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.

The ruling party’s move came a few hours after Corona, at a flag ceremony at the Supreme Court,
bared an alleged plan to oust him from office by any means fair or foul.  SC Chief Justice Renato Corona however, said he will not leave his post. 

The grounds of the impeachment case versus Corona are:


1.) Betrayal of public trust due to subservience to Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo during her presidency, from the time of his appointment as Supreme Court justice to his midnight appointment as Chief Justice.  Examples are his partiality in the Megapacific contract decision, Fernando Poe Jr. case, the Lambino versus Comelec case (people’s initiative), David vs. Arroyo and Neri vs. Senate (executive privilege.)


2.) Culpable violation of the Constitution for non-disclosure of the statement of assets, liabilities and net worth.


3.) Alleged graft and corruption. Refusal to account for judicial development funds, special allowances and other court collections.

This is a bad precedence. I'm sure this will have an adverse effects for those who were involved. God forbid, but this will happen. Anarchy in the making!

well we can still say he is innocent until proven guilty, i know all the facts are already outlined and submitted so we just have to wait for the final verdict...

we say our justice system is flawed but if we stop trusting it, where will we depend on?

I'm not that familiar with this case but isn't he the one who was shamed by PNoy publicly? Regardless of what he did (unless he molested a kid or raped a woman) it shouldn't have been handled that way.
