KAPAL NG FACE NG PROSECUTORS!
House prosecution team Deputy Speaker Lorenzo Tañada III says they are the underdogs in the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona.
I say this is ‘kapal ng mukha’ and pathetic ‘paawa effect’ to the max.
Tanada’s lone argument is
has acquired the “most expensive lawyers”, and “has a call center of lawyers” for his defense.” Corona
Deputy Majority Leader Miro Quimbo adds
’s lawyers have been practicing litigation law their entire lives. Corona
These are correct. But these definitely DOIN’T MAKE the prosecutors an underdog.
First, President Pnoy himself is OPENLY, and WHOLE-HEARTEDLY, supporting the prosecution. Remember, under Pnoy’s CONTROL and DISPOSAL are the thousands, if not tens of thousands, of lawyers in ALL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES!
Second, being congressmen, the prosecutors have their OWN people and funds/resources in the tens of millions at their disposal.
Third, the prosecution has media giant ABS-CBN at its side, as clearly shown by the inclusion of three lawyers of the network among their private prosecutors.
The mind-conditioning capability of ABS-CBN due to its popularity needs no lengthy explanation.
Fourth, the prosecution has ‘mysterious supporters’ who can spend as much as close to P1 million in one day alone for three full-page advertisements which appeared just days ago in the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
And has access to a supposed World Bank report on alleged dissatisfaction by the bank on the use of a loan it had extended to the Supreme Court.
A story which the bank disowned, and conveniently did not have comments from other Chief Justices before
. Even if the loan was granted SEVEN YEARS BEFORE Corona assumed office. Corona
And despite all these, you prosecutors still consider yourselves as the underdogs? As kids say nowadays, ‘KAPAL N’YO, (thick-faced), promise!’
If the prosecutors admit that the defense lawyers are more experienced than them, then it’s not the fault of
or his legal team. Corona
They should blame WHOEVER CHOSE THEM, instead of lawyers who are as seasoned and as smart as
’s defenders. Corona
And please, guys, don’t try to make idiots or suckers (utu-uto) out of the people by claiming the private lawyers with you were “not even given free coffee.”
The people are a LOT SMARTER than you think. We WON’T BLINDLY ACCEPT everything you say. You and your bosses, especially Pnoy, are not as popular and idolized as you think.
From the readers:
LISTEN, AND THINK, BEFORE YOU JUDGE!
For me, sometimes we are biased with our ideas for some reason. Let’s not be subjective. Be like a visionary who thinks a lot beyond the perspective of thinking.
Tama ka po. We shouldnt really prejudge a person until he or she is proven guilty, like in the case of Chief Justice Corona and Congresswoman Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. We should exercise critical thinking and give them the benefit of the doubt. Let’s not be blinded by biased journalism, for justice’s and democracy’s sake.
SHAME ON YOU,
Tinamad ako sa panonood ng Day 2. I was expecting a good and healthy debate. Ang dala lang pala ay papel na pamparingas at panggatong na ginamit nila para paniwalain ang masa at gamitin ang media. Are they really good prosecutors or firesecutors? Nasa gitna lang ako dito pero
, matapos itong impeachment na may lalabas na taong kapani-paniwala. Sa tutoo lang, sobrang nakakapaso. sana
Hi, Boyet. Ano ba naman ineexpect mo sa kanila? They are just following orders from a person na di nga alam kung ano gagawin sa buhay, eh! What do you expect?
Nahahalata ko, the hearts and minds of the prosecutors are not in this impeachment endeavor. They are good lawyers. Congressman Barzaga was provincial prosecutor of
before he won as congressman. I can sense they don't believe in prosecuting this impeachment. Parang napilitan lang sila dahil sa party discipline, release ng pork barrel funds nila at utos ng Malacanang. Parang half-hearted sila at ayaw manalo. Kawawa naman. Cavite
No matter how the defense tries to mask and hide the smell of shit, no matter how incompetent the prosecution is in proving that the shit is real, in the end, it will come out. It will stink. 30
