Today, May 29, 2012, Tuesday, The Chief Justice of the Philippines Renato Corona, who has been under trial for for 43 days, has been found guilty as charged under Article 2: which alleged that Corona betrayed public trust and/or committed culpable violation of the Constitution for his failure to disclose his statements of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN). Char.
The judgement against Corona proves that there is still hope for us the Philippines. it is a step forward to a much brighter future. And i am happy with it. Kudos to all the senator-judges and to the prosecutors and to the defense as well. The ride was highly entertaining(esp mention 2 senator Miriam Santiago haha). Now my dad and i wont have anything to look forward to every 2pm in the afternoon. Sad.
Below are the 20 list of senators who convicted the Chief Justice:
For me, as a simple Filipino Citizen, trust is essential for a public official. If the people no loger trust those who leads then their is no hope for progress. We the people do things for the government because we trust that the government will protect and do its best for us. We want those who will lead us to be truthful. And if that trust is betrayed then by all means you are no longer fit to serve.
