Corona Impeachment: The First 3 Days
The impeachment trial against Philippine Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona began January 16. Serafin Cuevas, lead counsel for defense and former SC Associate Justice, argued a motion for preliminary hearing and dismissal of trial. This was denied by Presiding Officer Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile.
Motions to summon Corona, his relatives, House Speaker Sonny Belmonte and other congressmen have also been dismissed. There are 8 articles of impeachment.
The sequence will be 2 (Non-Disclosure of Declaration of Statements of Assets and Liability Net Worth); 1 (Partiality to the Arroyo Administration); and 7 (Improper Issuance of TRO to Allow President Arroyo and Husband To Flee the Country). It's nonlinear, like Pulp Fiction.
Senator Joker Arroyo cautioned: If the Impeachment Court issues a subpoena for Chief Justice Renato Corona's statement of assets and liabilities net worth, then the Supreme Court counteracts with a temporary restraining order, then it could spark a constitutional crisis.
A question from Senator Franklin Drilon delivered a victory to the prosecution. The witness on the stand was SC Clerk of Court Enriquetta Vidal. SC Justices are required to submit their statements of assets and liabilities net worth. Did Vidal bring a copy of Corona's SALN? Apparently she did.
Senator-Judges Edgardo Angara, Jinggoy Estrada, Kiko Pangilinan, Chiz Escudero and Koko Pimentel assured her that she has nothing to fear if she gives it to the impeachment court despite an SC ruling forbidding it.
Senator TG Guingona made clear that the impeachment court is not Congress that's why they took a diffrent oath. Vidal gave the copy.
Happily, she won't be sanctioned, says SC Administrator Midas Marquez.
What REALLY Attracts Good Luck
Philippine Star Lifestyle columnist Wilson Lee Flores guested on Korina Sanchez's new radio morning show on DzMM on January 18, a few days before the Chinese Lunar New Year on the 23rd.
That episode was one of best and most illuminating conversations I ever heard. For me, it crystallized the things I've always believed in.
Wilson, of Chinese descent and good friends with business tycoons and other influential people, shares the true secrets of good fortune.
Feng shui is fine, but infinitely more powerful are: positive thinking, hard work, helping others, respect for parents, and of course, prayer.
I am extremely gratified to know I'm on the right track. Thank you, Will Soon Flourish!
