The Corona impeachment trial resumes today with closing arguments from the defense and the prosecution. Live stream starts at 2PM local time.
A Malacañang official yesterday declined to comment if the conviction of Chief Justice Renato Corona is imminent, stressing only that evidence is already there against him.
Asked, however, if an acquittal is possible, deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte told dzRB, “you have to look at the evidence …again, you have to go back to the charges. That’s something you have to consider.”
Members of the 23-member Senate will rule on the fate of Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona after hearing final arguments from prosecutors and the defense. A verdict will be handed down on Tuesday.
