Still unexplained: The gap between Corona’s wealth and SALN

Corona cousin in an SC car

It’s perfectly understandable for Chief Justice to take care of his cousin, Demetrio Vicente, who testified in his favor Tuesday at his impeachment trial.

The 70-year old Vicente is not in the best of health having suffered two strokes and Marikina is quite a distance from the Senate in Pasay City.

But he should have used his personal car, not the vehicle belonging to the Supreme Court,

Solar News reporter Albert Alicer and his crew caught on video Vicente riding in a beige Toyota Camry 1996 model with a red plate SEJ.953 after the impeachment hearings Tuesday evening. The vehicle turned out to be registered with the Supreme Court.

Another Solar News reporter interviewed Vicente and the old man, sans guile, admitted that he was “hatid-sundo (fetched and brought home) ” by the chief justice.

Marikina City Rep. Miro Quimbo, one of the prosecution spokespersons, has a valid point in saying that, “The fact that the resources of the Supreme Court are being used to ferry witnesses to and fro, I think this smacks of some violation pertaining to his misuse of government funds when it comes to that.”

“Certainly, the chief justice is entitled to his defense and in fact he has lawyers already defending him. But it is important that just like any person who is a respondent for a case pursuant to the performance of his public functions, you cannot use the resources of your office,” Quimbo said.

He asked that the Chief Justice consider taking a leave of absence to avoid further criticism. He said “unlike the congressmen who perform their constitutional duty as prosecutors in the impeachment trial, Corona should be prohibited from using the resources of the high tribunal to advance his defense.”

Surely, Corona with all his millions has a vehicle and driver, not paid by Filipino taxpayers, to bring home his cousin. Why he used the SC vehicle reflects his attitude towards his job. There’s a term in Tagalog for that attitude about a government position: “palabigasan.”

That’s why many of the items in the P21 million income that his defense team tried to dazzle the impeachment court were actually not supposed to be for his personal use but expenses to be incurred in performance of his duty. He was supposed to spend them for a specific purpose and not savings to be used to buy condominiums.

The past three days, the defense has been presenting witnesses disclosing the large income of Corona presumably to justify his purchase of a number of properties. Twenty-one million in ten years is P21 million. To majority of the Filipinos, that amount is mindboggling.

But Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV has a point in asking for the relevance of those testimonies because the P21.63 million that Chief Justice Renato Corona received over ten years from the Supreme Court may just be enough for his expenses and nothing more.

Trillanes said that based on his own computation for somebody with the stature of the Chief Justice who is maintaining a few households, “let’s just put a figure that he may be spending around P150,000 to P200,000 per month and with that you multiply it by 12, he’s spending P2 million more or less per year then times P10, P21 to 22 million, so …”

Cuevas, himself, completed Trillanes’ computation: “Ubos na. (Nothing left.)

What the public wants Corona to explain is why his millions in the bank and some of his properties were not reported in his Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Networth, which is required by the law.

That’s all.

    Naduduwag si Corona na umapir sa impeachment court kahit nangako sya sa publiko na aapir sa tamang panahon (kelan kaya yun?). Hindi kasi nya maipaliliwanag kung saang impierno nanggaling ang malaking halaga na dati ay $700,000 pero ngayon ay $1.3 million na. Kung malinis naman nya ay mas problema kasi hindi ito nakalista sa kanyang SALN.

    Isa lang kaso ito, yun pang iba na hindi nakalista sa SALN. Hirap ipaliwanag yan kasi kung madali para sa kanya at walang itinatago sana mas excited syang umapir sa korte. Hindi e, ang nangyayari nagmi-media blitz na walang kinalaman sa akusasyon sa kanya, inililigaw ang mga tao sa tunay na isyu.

  2. parasabayan - March 16, 2012 1:53 am

    Ang ginagawa ng kampo ni Corona, hinihilot nila yung mga figures so his income will be inflated, na pati yung mga allowances ng kanyang opisina eh idinagdag na sa kanyang total income para tumaas ito. Hinihilot din nila yung “value” ng mga properties niya para maging “accurate” yung inilagay niya sa kanyang SALN.

    I do agree with Lacson and some of the other senator judges. Wala yun sa halaga ng itinago niya, nasa “intent”on why he declared these as such. To think that this magistrate worked in SGV and knows all the tricks of the trade, he should know better. But NO, he leveraged on almost everything, inflating and deflating the values to his advantage.

    Vicente: “Hatid-sundo.”

    At least someone in the Corona bloodline can speak with honesty.

    Sya dapat yung CJ, hindi si Corona.

  4. joeseg - March 16, 2012 3:43 am

    Ubos Na!
    Kahit gurang na si Cuevas, nabighani rin siya kay Senador Trillanes kaya binigkas ang isang nagdudumilat na katotohanan na kahit anong gawing pasikot-sikot na kwentada, ubos na! Ibig sabihin, wah na at conforme si Cuevas na sagad na ang legitimate income ni Corona para makabili ng mga mamahaling condos at maraming properties kaya sadyang hindi tugma sa kanyang SALN.

  5. chi - March 16, 2012 4:07 am

    joe, si Senador Trillanes lang ang uniko na kinaringgan/kinabasahan ko ng katotohanang komento at simpleng matimatik na kapanipaniwala tungkol sa kaperahan ni Corona.

    Pati si Cuevas ay hindi naka-angal at walang nasabi kundi pagsang-ayon na ‘ubos na”. Para sa akin ay itong analysis ni Trillanes at sagot ni Cuevas ang so far ay substantial sa nagiging pasikot-sikot na usapan ng hindi tugmang income, propeties at SALN ni Corona.

  6. chi - March 16, 2012 4:23 am

    Si Trillanes kasi kung ano ang isip pribado ay sya ring isip publiko, walang kieme-kieme at inarte kaya nasuko si Cuevas. Madali syang sundan ng mga taong tulad nya ay hindi kumplikado ang takbo ng isip at buhay.

  7. Phil Cruz - March 16, 2012 4:37 am

    Ellen, ang daming smoke and mirrors and magic etong Corona camp. But I think you hit it right on the nose:

    “What the public wants Corona to explain is why his millions in the bank and some of his properties were not reported in his Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Networth, which is required by the law.

    That’s all.”

  8. Phil Cruz - March 16, 2012 4:40 am

    And the only one who can explain all that is Renato Corona himself. Not his lawyers, not even Mrs. Corona. Renato himself.. because it is his SALN.

    Repeat..Because it is his SALN.

  9. Phil Cruz - March 16, 2012 4:56 am

    The more the Corona lawyers play around with their magic tricks and delay Corona’s appearance, the clearer it becomes that they are really scared of putting Corona on the witness stand because his lies and the lawyers’ lame excuses are going to be wrapped around Renato’s neck like a hangman’s noose.

    And Mrs. Corona is going to be sucked into this later like in a whirlpool. And perhaps even the kids.

    Renato has dragged so many people into his personal problem. He has used even the court employees. Even the IBP. Even now the women judges.

    A decent honorable man should not have done this. But then is he an honorable man fit to sit as Chief Justice? That is what the Senators are going to judge him on.

  10. hawaiianguy - March 16, 2012 5:36 am

    How can Corona justify the golossal gap between his SALN and his actual wealth and assets? No way, that’s why he is afraid down to his bone marrow to testify personally. He knows that a fish is always caught in its big mouth. He must also believe in the maxim “no talk, no error.” :) Pero tuso man daw ang matsing, mapaglalangan din. Ayun, pati si Cuevas, nabuko ng sabihin niya na “Ubos na” matapos mg explain si Trillanes kung mgkano gastos ng isang tulad niya.

    Hay naku! paano ba naman makakaahon ang pinas kapag ganito lahat ng mga matataas na officials ng gobyerno. Sobrang kurap at abusado.

  11. hawaiianguy - March 16, 2012 5:36 am

    sorry “colossal.”

  12. Phil Cruz - March 16, 2012 5:43 am

    Corona’s lawyers are twisting in the wind. No matter how they try, Renato’s case is just too difficult to defend.

    Will they again try their intended “walkout” or “call for a mistrial”? I don’t think it would work now. Too much evidence against them has been brought out. And they have failed to counter these effectively.

    Will they try for a political solution? Get pressure groups to work on the Senators? I don’t think so. The INC population is too insignificant compared to the non-INC voters. The Women Judges Association? Nahh.. The IBP? More nahh..

    Corona’s last plane out (resignation) has long departed the airport. No way out.

    He’s headed for the gate marked “Disgraceful Exit”.

  13. chijap - March 16, 2012 7:20 am

    I think these are the two possible scenarios:

    (1) Corona will ignore the Impeachment court and let his Steve Jobs-trained lawyers do the convincing. Sa dulo nga they will simply rest the case with silence.

    (2) Corona will have to sit down and explain but it would be like how he said it on the TV channels. With a spice of truth but a whole meat of omission and redirection. In fact baka nga sabihin nya lang lagi is “what do you think” or “siguro.” But nothing will come of him sitting down and in fact he would use this to say he has nothing to hide (so advice to prosecution prepare for this scenario — prepare your 1000 questions now).

    Nevertheless, I anticipate this to go down to a vote. And at this point Corona is putting his pot on his backing with the likes of Miriam, Arroyo, and Bongbong. All he needs now is five more to side with him or to abstain (pede ba yun?) he gets to humiliate this nation one more time!

  14. juggernaut - March 16, 2012 9:51 am

    Ang problema dito nasanay na ang ibang opisyal sa gobyerno na gamitin ang pera ng opisina nila na parang sarili nilang pera, normal na lang, basta i liquidate lang kung saan ginastos, di na bale kung paano ginastos, okay lang basta napakinabangan ng opisina.
    During the time of Gloria balita ko pati pang grocery sa mga bahay nila charged to the office, boxes properly addressed to which house (Mikey’s, etc) and delivered pa ng government drivers. Lately I hear its not the case with the new occupant, may sariling budget siya for personals.

  15. acibig - March 16, 2012 12:32 pm

    can anyone educate me on why people are always asking about CJ assets– it is a given that MOST politicians are corrupt, so why are we all asking?? si marcos ba , si enrile, si estrada , lahat sila, if based sa salary nila , can they accumulate their current wealth??? yes, kasama na si cj, eh di ninakaw ang asset nila , mystery ba yun? ang difference na lang whether mahuli ka o hindi, there lies the difference, ang nahuhuli, bobo ,ang hindi mahuli , matalino

  16. ningcho - March 16, 2012 12:49 pm

    #15@acibig
    simple lang po ang sagot dyan. si corona ang nasasakdal kaya lahat ng mga tanong patungkol sa kanya or as u said his assets. hintayin mo na yung mga sinasabi mo ang masakdal at sigurado ako lahat ng mga tanong eh patungkol din sa kanila at assets nila.

  17. Rudolfo - March 16, 2012 4:53 pm

    # 16, ncho, tama ka, nasa katwiran ka at hindi pilosopo !..Kailangan talaga, magkaroon ding may-Kumanta, at mag-reklamo, bago magkaroon ng kaso..Siguro, darating ang panahon dyan..”weather-weather” lang sabi ni Erap !…Sa kason kasi ni CJ-Corona, 188 na congressmen, ang kumanta at nagreklamo, kaya nagkaroon ng Senate Court, para malaman ng taong bayan, kung karapat-dapat sya na maging Hepe sa SC ?..

    May dagdag na may-kalaboan o ugaling di pagwawasto ng records, galing sa “Rappler-report”, pati yata mga “honors” ng pag-aaral nya noon, ay pinalabo o “dinuktor” din, mapa-bilib nya lang si GMA, para sya ay gawing Hepe ng SC..Ang pinaka-magaling pala sa klase niya ay sina, (late) Edgar Jopson,”student activist” sa panahon ni FM, at isa sa mga Hurado ng SC, si Justice Brion yata?…palasak na pala, ang pag-uugali, sa di pag-wasto o pagtama ng mga records mula pa noon, na dapat ay Totoo o katutuhanan lamang!..Si Senador Sonny Trillanes, ay totoong magaling-malinis at matapang, kahit di abogado..Mapapahiya ang matatanda sa kanya, katulad ki dating Justice Cuevas..Dapat,ayusin ng defense, para di na mapahiya ng husto ang kanilang kleyente, kaya exit o “Resign” na lang…dahil, credibility nila apiktado na din..

  18. Manachito - March 16, 2012 9:00 pm

    “Palabigasan”.. Hindi ba halos lahat na nasa atin pamahalaan ay ito ang ginawa sa salapi ng bayan? Sana ay tapusin na itong “palabas” na ito at paalisin na si Corona. Sana lahat katulad ni Senador Trillanes… at sana ay magpahinga na rin si (dating) Hukom Cuevas. Matanda na rin siya na tulad ko. :)

  19. dan1067 - March 16, 2012 9:43 pm

    si Senador Trillanes lang ang uniko na kinaringgan/kinabasahan ko ng katotohanang komento at simpleng matimatik na kapanipaniwala tungkol sa kaperahan ni Corona.

    Tama ka Chi pareho silang istilo ni sernador jinggoy walang kyeme magtanong pero hindi kay Cuevas kundi sa witness. Ang malaking pagkakaiba nga lang ay itong si sen. Estrada pag umasta ng magtanong e may halong pagka intrigero at may pagka tsismoso at madalas wala kang napupulot na aral sa senador na ito. Gumaya na lang siya sa kaibigan niya sen. Revilla, no talk no mistake!

  20. chi - March 16, 2012 11:35 pm

    @dan1067, ano ba ang tawag sa ngisi at may pa-ismid at nakataas ang isang bahagi ng bibig? Yan ang itsura ni matsjinggoy kung nagtatanong sa wetness? :)

    Oo nga, hindi ko yata nababalitaan na magtanong kahit kabobohan si Sen. Agimat jr samantalang naghahari sya kung mga tulad ni Hayden Kho ang nasasalang sa senado? Well, in Corona’s case mas mabuti nga siguro na no talk no mistake sya baka sakaling maiklian na ang trial na pinahahaba ng todo dahil sa kakiemehan ni Corona na ‘to be or not to be’ sa trial.

  21. rabbit - March 16, 2012 11:42 pm

    “Mapapahiya ang matatanda sa kanya (Trillanes)” ….

    O di ba si Ex-Gen Reyes napahiya … o di nag-baril sa sarili. Sana ganyan din si Corona.

    Kaya etong si Trillanes ay puwedeng pamalit kay Pnoy sa 2016. Mukhang hindi namomolitika. Totoong tao ito. Kalimutan niyo na itong sila Binay, Escudero, Roxas … mga sala sa init sala sa lamig ang mga taong ito.

    Parang nakikinita ko na … Pnoy tapos Trillanes … ang Bansa ninyo ay uunlad at puwede na ulit ninyong ipagmalaki.

    #15 fighting corruption starts with one case. Its a bit of irony that this case involves the Chief Justice. Note the word, JUSTICE.

    Imagine this, if CJ gets convicted, then the likes of people you suspect are doing the same thing may end up realizing they may end up in the same boat with Corona next.

    And you should think, CJ is what you would classify as matalino. He got to be CJ in spite of all these accusations against him. So kung nahuli at naproven guilty sya, then walang matalino sa batas.

    Now if your reasoning “if everybody is doing it…” is still something you consider still acceptable and a norm, then you are part of the problem.

  25. Tedanz - March 17, 2012 4:02 am

    Sana nga von …. sigurado ko kinuha na ni Lord yang mga matatandang huklubin na hanggang ngayon naghahasik pa ng lagim sa inyong Bansa. Masamang pamarisan ang mga taong ito …. at sigurado ko yang mga mas bata ninyong mambabatas sa ngayon ay meron ng nakuhang masamang aral sa mga ito ….. sana naman wag gamitin o gayahin …. sana magbago na lahat para namang puwedeng ipagyabang kahit nasaan ka ang inyong bansang sinilangan.

    SENATOR-JUDGE KAY CJ: HUMARAP KA NA!

    Ani Trillanes, hindi siya kumbinsido sa mga iniharap na testigo ng depensa dahil hindi sila nakapagpaliwanag kung bakit walang acquisition cost ang ari-arian ng punong mahistrado base sa kanyang statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN).

    Bukod dito, wala pa ring malinaw na paliwanag kung bakit hindi nadeklara ni Corona sa kanyang SALN ang P31 milyong deposito sa bangko.

    “‘Yun na nga wala pa ring nangyayari. Ang hinihintay natin bakit walang nakalagay dun sa acquisition cost, du’n sa SALN at kung bakit ‘yung P 31 million na bank deposits hindi na-declare, ‘yun ang mga hindi nasasagot sa ngayon. ‘Yun ang hinihintay natin sa defense, magprisinta sila ng testigo na sasagot sa mga katanungan na iyon,” giit ni Trillanes.

    “‘Yung sa bank deposit­s, P31 million kailangan niyang i-justify kung nasaan ‘yun. Bakit hindi niya naideklara ‘yun?

    Tapos sa Bellagio (condominium), bakit na-under declared as well as other properties,” dagdag pa niya.

    Imbes na magprisinta ng 14 pang testigo sa mga darating na araw, sinabi ni Trillanes na makabubuting si Corona na lamang ang humarap sa korte upang sa gayon ay lubusan nitong maipaliwanag ang lahat ng ibinabato sa kanya. http://www.abante.com.ph

    Lalong matatakot nito si Corona na umapir sa senado, siguradong bugbugin sya ng matitinong tanong ni Sen. Sonny.

  28. vic - March 17, 2012 5:31 am

    Lately with the price of gasoline so high, it is much better for Corona to use the Official car in chauffering his cousin and charge the Gas to Midas Expense account…
    By the way, why not the Politicians settle their score the way this MP and an appointed Senator (very young at 37 until retirement of 70) will settle theirs in March 31…there is still some few tickets available at $1800 a shot…and the problem here it was the MP party who was blocking the Senate Reform…read and wonder why the Likes of the Tiangcos instead of stabbing his peers outside the House, can not do the Same.

    KEY PHRASES, for Article 2:

    - Chief Justice with more than adequate credentials and qualifications

    - inexcusable negligence of duty
    - betrayal of public trust

    - deliberate attempt to conceal assets
    - culpable violation of the Consitution

    —–

    This is our quest
    Don’t care how’t may sound

    No matter how hopeless
    Pro-CJ senators abound

    To fight for the right, without question or pause
    To be willing to march into Hell, for a Heavenly cause

    And we know if we’ll only be true, to this glorious quest
    That our hearts will lie peaceful and calm, when we’re laid to our rest

    And the world will be better for this:

    That one man, who gave us a runaround
    Be dismissed from his unrightful office

    To reach…an IMPEACHABLE ground….

    (Sung to the tune of a popular song everyone knows.)

    chi nasa safe mood palagi si sen. Bong Revilla kaya hindi nagtatanong para pagdating ng botohan impeachment man o re election nasa gitna lang siya, kaliwat kanan kakabig siya. Buti pa nga si leon guererro kahit walang ka kuwenta kuwenta ang tanong e nagkalakas loob. Itong si sen. matsinggoy ba kamo e nakaka asar talaga ang asta pag nagtatanong na naka pangumbaba pa sa rostrum na akala mo nasa kapehan lang at walang gagawain kundi ngising asong magtatanong iinsultuhin at gagawan ng intriga ang witness at prosekyuson. Sa mga nakaraang paglilitis lalo nat broadcast televised ito na ang istilo ng senador na ito nakakasawa na.

  33. dan1067 - March 17, 2012 3:11 pm

    Marami ang nagtatanong at nagtataka sa biglang paglutang ni Cong. Toby Tiangco pabor kay CJ Corona. Siguro may basehan ang narinig ko sa isang radio program months ago na may mas malalim na dahilang personal itong si Tiangco at hindi dahil ayaw niya sa railroading ng impeachment complaint against Corona. Mayroon daw siyang nila lobby na TRO sa supreme court para pagbigyan ang kontrata ng nakakasulasok na sanitary landfill sa Navotas kasama niya ang businessman na si Regis Romero sa proyektong ito. Sabi pa ng source dapat daw pina drug test muna si cong. Tiangco bago sinalang sa witness stand under oath. Obvious naman talaga sa itsura pa lang ng Conressman, hindi kaya ito napansin ng impeachment court?

  34. chi - March 17, 2012 8:37 pm

    #33. dan1067, I was wondering nga kung bakit si Toby ay naka-metro look at tanggal shoes while he is a rep of the pipol. Navotasan yata sya. :)

    Napansin sigurado ng IC but it’s irrelevant to Corona’s case kaya binigyan na lang sya ng freedom to ‘express’ himself. Ang narinig mo tungkol sa landfill, paksa ng isang grupo matagal na.

    #31. – Chief Justice with more than adequate credentials and qualifications

    bay, uber qualified sya for the position of CJ, uber qualified din as thief justice. Recto bound palagi ang paa ni Corona noon while erecting his monumental credentials.

    Bakit hindi nagbubunganga si Midas tungkol sa isyu ng amo na pamimeke. Even Corona himself is soooo silent on the issue covering it up with media blitz lambasting Pnoy.

  36. baycas2 - March 18, 2012 7:10 am

    Chi,

    Yan ang problema pag nag-engage ka sa fakery at ipaalam o ilahad (o, kamakailan, ipagyabang) ito sa bayan.

    Sa Article 2 pa lang ng AOI, paano mong masasabing “SIMPLE” negligence, “inadvertence”, o “little misdemeanor” lang ang nangyari sa kaniyang inconsistencies at omissions sa SALN?

    Di ba, siya na ang pinakamagaling sa lahat ng pinakamagaling sa Supreme Court ayon sa kaniyang credentials at qualifications???

    Paano siya magkakamali sa pagbuo ng kaniyang SALN?

    Sa akin, “INEXCUSABLE” negligence yan at pasok sa binigay na mga halimbawa ni Constitutional Commissioner de los Reyes para siya maging BETRAYAL OF PUBLIC TRUST.

    Masiyado niyang pinataas ang kaniyang sarili sa credentials at qualifications niya.*

    There’s nowhere to go but down.

    —–

    Ito pa ang isa, sa fakery wala ka ring lusot…

    Kailangang mailipat na sa pangalan ni Mang Demetrio Vicente ang lahat ng ari-arian na nakapangalan pa kay Cristina Corona. May handa nang magpautang sa kaniya dahil pag nakapangalan na sa kaniya ang titulo puede nang ibenta ni Mang Demet ang ari-arian niya.

    May balitang nais na niyang ibenta ito.

    Kung peke ang deed of sale, instant yaman si Mang Demet at ang kaniyang anak (na nasa Kuwait ba?).

    Ika nga ni Tongue, “GADEMET!

    *Ang sabi ni James Wilson:

    The doctrine of impeachments is of high import in the constitutions of free states. On one hand, the most powerful magistrates should be amenable to the law: on the other hand, elevated characters should not be sacrificed merely on account of their elevation.

    Oo, dapat maghinay-hinay ang kaniyang mga kritiko dahil itinaas siya diyan sa puwesto bilang Punong Mahistrado ng mga nakaraang pangyayari (circumstances). Di dapat siya ma-sakriprisyo.

    Nguni’t siya rin mismo ang naging palalo at naging mapagmataas.

    Ang patuloy pa ni James Wilson:

    No one should be secure while HE violates the constitution and the laws: every one should be secure while HE observes them.

  38. chi - March 18, 2012 9:48 am

    Paktaylo na si Atong at Tina, meron gustong magpahiram kay Mang Demet ng pera para panglipat titulo.

    Ang bilis umikot ng karma, pinagsasaliputan ang mag-asawang Corona.
