Hello Lotters, I don't know about your assesment with the impeachment trial of Corona, but i feel in my view that he is obviously delaying himself from testifying in this case. Just remembered that when he got impeached solely because Gloria Macapagal Arroyo almost got away when he approved their petition for a surgery abroad. her not pursuing to leave has taken the toll of the palace to have a warrant of arrest on her. and then Impeach the Chief Justice. All of the trials now are about his unexplained wealth and not how and why he save and approve arroyo's get away. Any one kinda confused on this matter?

Every one was excited when it came out on public that there's a plan to impeach no less than the supreme court chief himself. In the first few days, everyone's watching it, we're all interested. We found out how brilliant or stupid those who are directly involved in the case. And then it starts to drag and now, a lot has become lost with what's going on and has lost interest with the case entirely. Bottomline? it's boring.

I think the only watchers a now are the law students and the people knowledgeable about the law. In a sense, they are having a monopoly of the situation. Common folk seem to be bored with this stuff. I agree that it was interesting at first but everything went down after some mistakes revealed in the trial. Just shows who are really the lawyers who deserve their degrees, titles and paychecks. Hope everyone will get something positive about this, one way or another.

Hello there, Who is interested with the trial anyway? I hate to listen too. For one thing, it is obvious that Corona has unexplained wealth although it is not among the reasons for his impeachment, it is clear he accumulated ill gotten wealth. In other countries if the involved official is on trial and he knows he is guilty, he volunteers to get down from his post. But here in the Philippines, offocials have no delicadeza!

I am interested in this Corona case, specially now that his dollar accounts were made public and are being contested by the defense lawyer. I think Letran, what they are trying to prove is Corona has a lot of ill gotten wealth and then became plentiful during the reign of Gloria Arroyo. Thus, they can connect why Corona permitted her for a surgery abroad. They think it's a case of "utang na loob" (debt of gratitude).

I do always watch the trial, updated to what's happening. so far I'm positively hoping that the impeachment court will decide for what's the truth and what's need to be done for those corrupt like CGMA and CJRenato Corona

I have been an avid follower of the Corona impeachment trail since day 1. If you will closely analyze the scenario, they veered from the true purpose of the impeachment. All the while I thought they were charging him for the wrong entries in the SALN, now we are into the dollar deposits. I believed there was already a Supreme court ruling on the dollar deposits. They are now throwing everything at the Chief Justice in an effort to remove him from office. and if Corona is acquitted, there will be another impeachment on December. How's that for the books? The administration should be thinking of the more pressing issues right. If China wins over the Scarborough Shoal, what's next? Do we always have to rely on the US for the defense of our territories? Are there no plans of strengthening our defense? Will the money again be invested in the next coming elections just to gain the upperhand in the political system of the country? All the while I thought there will be positive changes but it seems that I was all wrong.

hi, the only thing i am interested in right now is how he can explain those 80+ dollar accounts that the ombudsman revealed through information furnished by the AMLAC ( anti money laundering council)Wow it might be really hard to be in he's shoes, anyway if it were a game of chess I think he's under check with a big possibility of a check mate, but then again a person is presumed innocent unless proven guilty so let's just hear what he has to say on Tuesday, think it's a make or break situation for him right now.

I am also not interested on his trial and you are right its kind of confusing. Maybe there is more evidences on his hidden wealth than the approval of Arroyo's get away. But still that should be cleared too since the issue is about public trust on his leadership as the cheap of the Supreme Court.

Instead of wasting the country's resources in this waste of time our freaking President should focus in our security. Our country is being invaded because the government have too many detraction, yeah corrupt officials should be jailed but economy and security should be the main focus. North korea targeted our country for their rocket testing because we dont have security.

I'm so tired of watching and hearing those news everyday. Why they keep on trying their best to put Mr. Corona down? This case only shows that the past administration is very weak.. The Presidential Commission on Good Government, the Office of the Ombudsman that promote accountability and the Coalition Against Corruption that monitors pork barrel are showing that they failed to do their duties and that would show to the public that corruption will prevail in the Philippines thus it demeans the integrity of public offices. I know that case would only end up on nothing just like the Maguindanao Massacre Case that became silent without giving the public about the progress of the said case. It's not the priority case that the country is facing and that the officials need to find solution for. Why not focus on poverty and other projects that would result in nation's development? All this sad news would only hurt our image in the international community.

I am really not confused because I honestly don't know what's going on with his trial. I really don't like to listen or watch news or any issues about our politics. For me, it's really crazy and really don't understand most of it. I just hope that it will all be settled and that if proven guilty then proper payment and jail rules should be followed.
