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.
