Chief Justice or Dramatic Actor?
Is it just me or is there a trend here? Why is it that when public officials are put in to trial for their “alleged” corrupt acts they end up in the wheelchair? I mean seriously? I feel like this is a repeat performance with a different actor. Come on!
Not so long ago Gloria Arroyo pulled the same act when she and her husband tried to leave the country while in the middle of an investigation. Are these politicians frustrated actors? I’m sorry but they should know better that Filipino’s are not that stupid!
Corona gave a dramatic performance while giving his testimony at the witness stand and even signed a waiver giving the court full access to his bank accounts as well as his wife for investigation. Everything was going really well until he said that there is a condition to this waiver. He wants all the senator judges to sign the waiver as well and have their bank accounts be subjected to scrutiny. I’m sorry but to me ALL PUBLIC OFFICIALS are corrupt so that doesn’t change anything. It’s like him saying “Hey I stole money from the government but everyone does it right?” Poor Philippines! I really wish there would come a time when we can get rid of all these corruption or at least to the point where we can minimize it.
Enrile, said that if the chief justice will not be able to return on Wednesday for cross examination, his testimonies will be stricken off the record and the case will be considered submitted for resolution. As of the moment Corona’s camp appealed to the court to have him come back on Friday due to health reasons.
Better be ready with your popcorn and soda for another telenovela.
