Rappler’s “Was Corona honest” map

By Emmanuel Mongaya
(Journalist & blogger)

I have been blogging about the discrepancies in the statement of assets, liabilities, and net worth of Chief Justice Renato Corona when compared to documents about his real properties and peso bank accounts.

But http://www.rappler.com has done an excellent interactive job regarding his SALN entries and his properties. Click on the graphics so you can browse and judge for yourself if Corona has been honest.

The distinguished members of the defense panel led by former justice Serafin Cuevas can resort to all the legal technicalities to get all these documents from becoming entered as evidence in the formal impeachment trial.

Expect the allies of former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo sitting as senator-jurors and the so-called independents who pretend to be blind and deaf to the truth to help Cuevas lock the impeachment trial into endless debates on whether to enter more evidences or not.

They keep on arguing about the so-called “fruit of a poisoned tree” referring to the evidences. It has been clear, as we monitor the live television coverage, that pro-Corona allies are the very ones doing the poisoning.

Corona has likewise resorted to bringing the Supreme Court into the fray in coordination with his own version of people power to force a constitutional crisis, stop the trial, and save his neck.

But we know that Corona was dishonest and not fit to become Chief Justice.

Some lament that the so-called trial by publicity has proceeded smoothly with the public already convinced that Corona is indeed guilty. But our decisions are based on solid documents and not false propaganda like what pro-Corona folks did to investigative reporter and blogger Raissa Robles.

We have seen the truth uncovered despite desperate efforts to keep it buried.
