Corona impeach trial resumes; more prosecution witnesses to be presented

MANILA, Philippines – The Senate sitting as an impeachment court resumed on Tuesday, the 9th day of the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona since it started last January 16, 2012.

Senate President Juan Ponce-Enrile banged the gavel to open the trial at around 2:00 p.m..

At the resumption of the hearing, the prosecution team is expected to present more witnesses, including representatives of different property developers, in connection with Article 2 of the complaint pertaining to Corona’s alleged failure to disclose his statement of assets, liabilities and net worth.

In the past hearings, the prosecution presented witnesses to prove its allegation that Corona did not declare all his properties in his SALN or that he has allegedly used his wife and some family members to hide his properties.
