Listen to what Basas have to say, Senate told

I agree with the Inquirer March 14 editorial, “An inconvenient truth”: Chief Justice Renato Corona’s defense team has been milking the Basa-Guidote Enterprises Inc. (BGEI) for all its worth, that is, to account for the yawning gaps in his financial records, but it is now erecting huge obstacles to the possible testimony of Ana Basa and Sister Flory Basa on how the Corona couple oppressed them and took arbitrary control of BGEI.

Poll results give senators space to actually judge

By

Right before the Senate went into its five-week Lenten recess, Pulse Asia released a study showing that 47 percent of Filipinos believed Chief Justice Renato Corona was guilty. Significantly, 43 percent are ambivalent as regards his innocence or guilt, and 58 percent believe that the nation will accept the Senate’s verdict either way.

Who has superior power?

By

Whence are the senators currently judging the impeachment trial coming from? They are the same senators who were elected to the Senate two or four years ago. And what was the extent of the power of the Senate to which they were elected? Their power was only coequal with those of the executive department and the judicial department. How explain the claim of some senators now that their power while acting as impeachment judge has suddenly skyrocketed to a level higher than that of the Supreme Court? The answer to this question is a mystery to me.
