CORONA WIDOW BLASTS GOVT MACHINERY FOR HIS OUSTER


MAY 6 -During the eulogy for the late Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona who lies in state at the Supreme Court, Cristina Corona, his widow, scored the Aquino government for his unconstitutional ouster. Cristina spoke of how her husband became the “first casualty” of the “war on judicial independence” that began when he was impeached in 2011 and continued until his removal in May the following year. It is on record that President Aquino showed in every way his displeasure of Corona having been appointed by then President Gloria Arroyo as the Chief Justice of the Hgh Court. Aquino, still a presidential candidate, insisted that he, as president, should be appointing the new Chief Justice. He insulted Corona by having associate justice Conchita Carpio Morales instead of the traditional head of the High Court to swesr him in. Morales, upon her retirement from the SC, was immediately appointed by Aquino as Ombudsman, who later acted as his attack dog against Corona, coming up during the impeachment trial with his claimed $12 million in his bank accounts which were not reported in his Statement of Assets and Liabilities. She testified before the Senate court that Corona had this in his 100 bank acocunts, which claims were all lies and proved fase. The dollar accounts of Corona were leaked by the Anti-Money Laundering Council to Ombudsman even before the impeachment trial started. The AMLC report was then leaked to the medi and anti-Corona forces. Moreover, Coroa was impeached and convicted on his failure to report the amounts in his bank in his SALn, which is not even a ground for impeachment. Corona was also tried, not just as the Chief Justice but as an associate justice, which is not done. War on independence lost “It has been five years since the war on judicial independence. Yes, I do not hesitate to call it that. The impeachment was atte nded by armed attacks on this stalwart institution, the last bastion of democracy,” she said in her eulogy. “Instead of guns and bombs, overwhelming government machinery and influence were used; tools which were in a way deadlier and far more effective than traditional weapons of war because of their heightened ability to permeate not just the physical bodies of the combatants, but the latter’s hearts and minds,” she added. Cristina said the impeachment of her husband was “to a large extent, a fight for the Filipino psyche” and that he was at the frontline. Cristina said despite the attacks on her husband and the judiciary, “the Corona court strove to lead a battalion of staunch and unwavering defenders of truth judicial soldiers and heroes through and through.” In his 10 years in the SC, two years of which he spent as chief justice, Corona, according to Cristina, made it a point to protect the judiciary’s independence. “He had a desire to shield it from any and all attempts to curtail the ability, nay the duty, of the court to dispense justice with utmost independence, integrity, impartiality, propriety, competence and diligence,” she was quoted as saying in a report.READ MORE...

Corona widow blasts gov’t machinery for his ouster

MANILA, MAY 2, 2016 (TRIBUNE) Written by Tribune Wires Friday, 06 May 2016 00:00 f- During the eulogy for the late Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona who lies in state at the Supreme Court, Cristina Corona, his widow, scored the Aquino government for his unconstitutional ouster.

Cristina spoke of how her husband became the “first casualty” of the “war on judicial independence” that began when he was impeached in 2011 and continued until his removal in May the following year.

It is on record that President Aquino showed in every way his displeasure of Corona having been appointed by then President Gloria Arroyo as the Chief Justice of the Hgh Court.

Aquino, still a presidential candidate, insisted that he, as president, should be appointing the new Chief Justice.

He insulted Corona by having associate justice Conchita Carpio Morales instead of the traditional head of the High Court to swesr him in.

Morales, upon her retirement from the SC, was immediately appointed by Aquino as Ombudsman, who later acted as his attack dog against Corona, coming up during the impeachment trial with his claimed $12 million in his bank accounts which were not reported in his Statement of Assets and Liabilities. She testified before the Senate court that Corona had this in his 100 bank acocunts, which claims were all lies and proved fase.

The dollar accounts of Corona were leaked by the Anti-Money Laundering Council to Ombudsman even before the impeachment trial started. The AMLC report was then leaked to the medi and anti-Corona forces.

Moreover, Coroa was impeached and convicted on his failure to report the amounts in his bank in his SALn, which is not even a ground for impeachment.
Corona was also tried, not just as the Chief Justice but as an associate justice, which is not done.

War on independence lost

“It has been five years since the war on judicial independence. Yes, I do not hesitate to call it that. The impeachment was attended by armed attacks on this stalwart institution, the last bastion of democracy,” she said in her eulogy.

“Instead of guns and bombs, overwhelming government machinery and influence were used; tools which were in a way deadlier and far more effective than traditional weapons of war because of their heightened ability to permeate not just the physical bodies of the combatants, but the latter’s hearts and minds,” she added.


Four years after her husband's ouster, Cristina Corona, widow of former Chief Justice Renato Corona, on Thursday hit back at the government for "unconstitutionally" unseating him. During the eulogy at the Supreme Court, Cristina lamented how her husband became the "first casualty" of what she called the "war on judicial independence" that began when he was impeached in 2011 and continued until his removal in May the following year. -FROM GMA NEWS NETWORK

Cristina said the impeachment of her husband was “to a large extent, a fight for the Filipino psyche” and that he was at the frontline.

Cristina said despite the attacks on her husband and the judiciary, “the Corona court strove to lead a battalion of staunch and unwavering defenders of truth judicial soldiers and heroes through and through.”

In his 10 years in the SC, two years of which he spent as chief justice, Corona, according to Cristina, made it a point to protect the judiciary’s independence.
“He had a desire to shield it from any and all attempts to curtail the ability, nay the duty, of the court to dispense justice with utmost independence, integrity, impartiality, propriety, competence and diligence,” she was quoted as saying in a report.

She added that the Corona court promulgated decisions based on fact and law, “despite earning the ire of the most powerful of enemies.”

It was the Corona court that ordered in November 2011 the distribution to farmer-tenants of the Hacienda Luisita, which is owned by the clan of Aquino.
There was a lot of Palace pressure for Corona from the Palace for him to resign, otherwise he would be impeached.

At almost every instance and in forums, Aquino would that Corona was a corrupt SC justice, even without basis.

Aquino is also known to have bribed some 180 plus congressmen to impeach Corona. The impeachment complaint and the congressmen’s approval were all done in four hours, then sent to he Senate for trial.

CJ Corona had repeatedly insisted that it was this decision that fueled the Aquino administration’s alleged desire to unseat him.

Remember CJ Corona


PHOTO GOOGLE.COM SEARCH -"He left us in 2012 with a lot of pain in his heart. He left in the worst possible way a justice could. He was bound with the worst accusation that could be hurled against a Chief Justice," Brion then said, "May malaki nga bang kasalanang nagawa si Rene?" Brion believes that the government did not just impeach Corona but also attacked the judiciary's independence. "It is the judiciary and its independence they dismissed, not Renato Corona," Brion said. FROM SUNSTAR HEADLINE NEWS MAY 5, 2016

Cristina, who was accompanied during the service by their three children Carla, Francis, Cherie, warned critics of the judiciary that the “war” is far from over.

“Each time an attempt, both continued and new, is made on the strength, integrity, and independence of this great institution, remember CJ Corona. Remember his legacy and its ultimate goal,” she said.

“In the name of the Filipino people and of the truest meaning of a democratic state continue the fight for the judiciary: Continue the fight for judicial independence,” she added.

GMAonline reported that Associate Justice Arturo Brion lamented how the former chief justice was removed “in the worst possible way... and carpet bombed with the worst accusation.”

Brion also revealed that prior to his impeachment, Corona had already been hearing rumors of moves to unseat him but “he was not sure of the grounds.”

Despite the threat of an impeachment, Brion said Corona told him that “to surrender is not the choice... and that independence too is not solely mine to give away.”

“In the end, he paid dearly for his cherished values. He suffered with utmost dignity,” added Brion.

Corona’s daughter Cherie later told reporters that their family has already moved on and forgiven those who had wronged them.
Elections

The GMA report also said that with the upcoming May 9 elections, the widow appealed to voters to choose the next set of leaders that would defend democracy, judicial independence, and Philippine institutions.

“In just four days, elections for the nation’s leadership are set to be held. The fate of our country and the future of democracy lie in our hands,” she said.

“Choose he or she who shall uphold and defend Philippine democracy and our democratic institutions and not those who wittingly or unwittingly, shall destroy its institution,” Cristina added.

‘Surveys manipulated to favor admin bets’ May 6, 2016 12:11 am by JAIME R. PILAPIL, REPORTER


Poe keeps lead, Roxas rises in latest Pulse Asia survey Mar up 10 pts; Grace down 4 pts, VP by 3 pts INQUIRER FILE

University of the Philippines professor Prospero “Popoy” de Vera on Thursday questioned two Pulse Asia surveys conducted only two days apart that showed different results, saying these may have been manipulated to project the rise of a candidate.

“What happened to the two days when many Filipinos suddenly changed their minds?” he asked.

The latest Pulse Asia survey conducted from April 26 to April 29 showed administration bet Manuel “Mar” Roxas 2nd gaining two points to overtake Sen. Grace Poe.

In the vice presidential race, Roxas’ running mate Leni Robredo jumped four points to overtake perennial frontrunner Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.
The previous Pulse Asia survey was conducted two days earlier, from April 19 to 24.

De Vera said he could not help but be suspicious of the results.

“It seems abnormal. It’s suspicious, that’s why the camp of Senator Marcos is apprehensive that the survey results are fixed,” he noted.

The UP professor added that he will propose that in the next elections, survey firms will not be allowed to release results a month before the polls to give the people a free hand in choosing their leaders.

Trending


MARCOS

Marcos also on Thursday warned voters against falling for rigged survey results.

He noted that in the latest surveys, he lost an unbelievable six to 11 percentage points.

With around 55 million registered voters, Marcos said this translates to up to around six million votes that he inexplicably lost last week.

“This is clearly an attempt to trend. Niloloko na nila ang tao sa pamamagitan ng surveys na hindi kapani-paniwala yung kanilang mga numero [They are fooling the people through surveys that are unbelievable],” he told reporters during the weekly media forum Kapihan sa Senado.

“Nothing has happened that could explain it. It would take a very large and important event for the change in trend in those numbers. I don’t remember anything big in the past two weeks,” the senator said.

Marcos warned that this scheme could lead to cheating.

“Who will be the biggest beneficiary of this trending, of this obviously concocted numbers that they have in the surveys? The administration is the only one who can do that. Nobody but the administration candidates are going up, everybody else is going down,” he stressed.

Marcos urged voters to take active measures to protect their votes.

He also asked all political parties to join in the efforts to protect the sanctity of the ballot.

Roxas and Robredo however warned their rivals against sourgraping.

“If ever there’s a party responsible here, then it’s the survey companies. These politicians are laughable. When they were the ones on top, they say these surveys are credible. Now that they are down, they say that those surveys could not be trusted,” Roxas told reporters.

Robredo echoed Roxas’ statement.

“When he (Bongbong) was number one, he believed the survey. Now that he is not on top, he does not believe it anymore. He should remember that this is not the first time that I ended up number 1. I have been on top in consecutive surveys,” Robredo said.

Roxas likened the surveys to a thermometer whose results cannot be dismissed when it is inconvenient for the patient.

“When we were trailing, they were so silent. Now that we are on the rise, they keep on complaining,” he said.

“When I was number 6 or number 4, we believed it because we used it as a guide. Now that I am on top and leading by two points, I know I still have to do more,” Roxas added.

Aquino to voters: Urge Roxas, Poe to unite By: Kristine Angeli Sabillo @KSabilloINQ INQUIRER.net 06:20 PM May 6th, 2016


Aquino to voters: Urge Roxas, Poe to unite

President Benigno Aquino III on Friday called on voters to convince their presidential candidates to unite against Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, who he said may be a “threat to democracy.”

“Talk to your principals and say we need to see a demonstration of country before self,” said Aquino during an exclusive interview with Inquirer editors and reporters in Malacañang,

He was responding to questions on a possible Duterte presidency.

Asked if he would again try to bring together ruling Liberal Party candidate Mar Roxas and Sen. Grace Poe, Aquino said he already tried. But now it will be up to the people to convince their candidates.

“Can I actually do it by myself? What if more voices start speaking now? And I need all of your commitment to unify us,” Aquino said.

The President said this a couple of hours before Roxas held a press conference to convince Poe to meet with him and unite against a looming dictatorship.

READ: Roxas to Poe: Let’s thwart ‘looming dictatorship’

Duterte, the current survey front-runner, has repeatedly dangled the possibility of a return to strongman rule to curb criminality and stop corruption.

“So if he starts doing all of these then really there is a threat to what we have established especially after Edsa (People Power),” Aquino told Inquirer.

In a later television interview, Aquino pointed out that Duterte has only 30 percent of voters backing him, according to the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey.

“Why don’t we remove that problem or that threat, or that insecurity by uniting the 70 and defeating the 30?” he said.

Asked who he was referring to when he said “everybody” should “try and get together,” Aquino affirmed that he was referring to Poe, Roxas, Vice President Jejomar Binay and even Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago.

“But the whole point is, any two of them unite … we have more than 40 percent. It defeats the 30 percent,” he said.

The last SWS survey showed that 33 percent of voters preferred the tough-talking mayor. His contenders are trailing behind—Poe with 22 percent, Roxas with 20 percent, Binay with 13 percent and Santiago with two percent.

DAVAO CITY — President Benigno Aquino III’s call to candidates shadowing front-runner Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte to unite was a desperate move of the administration, said vice presidential aspirant Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Friday.

“The desperation is showing. These are all desperate attempts of the administration … I also heard that Sen. Grace Poe turned down the offer so again, maliwang na naghahanap sila ng paraan na baguhin ang resulta (it’s clear they are finding ways to change the result),” he told reporters in a press briefing.

READ: President asks Roxas, Poe to join forces vs Duterte

Administration standard-bearer Mar Roxas reached out to Poe on Friday, through a press conference, for them to unite against a “looming dictatorship,” without referring to Duterte. Poe said she has no intentions of backing out from the race.

Earlier in the day, Marcos bared a supposed “Plan B” of the administration to manipulate the elections by making his rival Rep. Leni Robredo win. If she is elected, there would be moves to impeach Duterte and the current administration will remain in power.

The information on the plot was shared by a source from the Liberal Party, the senator said.

“Sila mismo alam nila na wala na silang panalo (They know that they won’t win). That’s why there’s a Plan B and they’re trying to make alliances,” Marcos said.

He said it was obvious that the administration does not want him to be vice president so they could impeach Duterte eventually.

“I suppose the best way to safeguard Mayor Duterte is to have me as his VP dahil siguro hindi siya tatanggalin dahil ako ang papalit sa kanya (probably they won’t remove him because I’ll be the one who will replace him),” he said. TVJ

Cayetano accuses Malacañang, Roxas, Poe of conspiracy vs Duterte By: Nestor Corrales @NCorralesINQ INQUIRER.net 03:40 PM May 6th, 2016


Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano on Friday accused Malacañang and the camps of presidential candidates Manuel “Mar” Roxas II and Sen. Grace Poe of conspiracy to bring down rival Rodrigo Duterte.

“I am confirming to you that there is a conspiracy between the Palace, Grace Poe, Mar Roxas, their supporters and some groups and of course with the participation of some people in the management of a network,” Cayetano told reporters in a press briefing.

Citing what he said were reliable sources, Cayetano said Malacañang met with representatives from the camps of Poe and Roxas to convince one of them to concede. The meeting, however, was unsuccessful because no one wanted to withdraw from the race.

“I have known about the about the meetings of Malacañang. That is Malacañang-sponsored between Grace Poe and Mar Roxas,” he said.

The senator said Malacañang was alarmed because the series of negative attacks against Duterte did not affect his ratings.

On Thursday, a television ad was aired on ABS-CBN, showing minors asking the public if Duterte, known for his profanity-laced speeches, among others, was a good choice for president.

Cayetano said the Palace and the camps of Poe and Roxas were behind the negative advertisement.

The TV ad was paid for by Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV, who Cayetano said was an attack dog of Duterte’s rivals.

Responding to Cayetano’s accusations, Malacañang said the senator’s claims were baseless.

“There is no truth and no concrete basis to the allegations of Senator Cayetano,” Communications Secretary Herminio “Sonny” Coloma Jr. said in statement.

“The government is focused on the goal of conducting elections that is clean and has integrity.”

Cayetano responded to this by saying, “tell it to the Marines.” RC/rga
