Ombudsman Hints On Plan To File 2nd Impeach Case vs Corona (Philippines)

If Chief Justice Renato Corona will be acquitted in the ongoing impeachment trial at the Senate, the Office of the Ombudman may file a second impeach case against him later this year.

No less than Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales said that it is possible.

“I don’t see any reason why there is no chance for me to file...if that is warranted,” Morales said when asked by senator-judge Miriam Defensor-Santiago about the matter.

Taking the witness stand for the second time on Tuesday, May 15, 2012, the Ombudman was pressed by Santiago if she would file a case in December. Morales replied in the affirmative.
“I must only abide by what the Ombudsman law provides,” she said.

A day earlier, Morales debuted in Corona’s impeachment trial as a hostile witness. She brought with her and presented to the Senate, sitting as an impeachment court, an Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) report on the alleged multi-million dollar bank deposits of the Chief Justice.
