LISTEN, AND THINK, BEFORE YOU JUDGE!
The statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN) of Chief Justice Renato Corona has finally been released to the impeachment court.
Start judging, ladies and gentlemen. More proof to follow from both sides.
But judge based on EVIDENCE to be presented, and not on the opinion of others or which side has more press releases and other media exposures.
Especially if the media exposure will come from a firm OPENLY FAVORING ONE SIDE, like ABS-CBN which assigned its own counsels to the prosecution.
Or from a media person who will make legal assumptions or issue opinions even though he or she is NOT A LAWYER.
LISTEN to, and THINK VERY CAREFULLY, of, EVERYTHING that will be presented by both the prosecution and the defense, before you conclude on anything.
Don’t judge, or be INFLUENCED by media, based only on what one side will say or present.
Again, if we let anyone manipulate our minds and opinions, truth and justice won’t be what it is and what has been established.
Truth and justice will be what and how that person(s) wants these to be.
In the process, if you find anything suspicious or objectionable, air your concerns in ALL possible mediums, from media to the Internet.
As I’ve said in an earlier blog, it’s the Senate as the impeachment court who will decide if Corona’s guilty or not. It’s not the prosecution, the defense or the media, or anyone in media.
Whether we all like it or not, EVERYONE is presumed INNOCENT until proven guilty. There’s no exception.
I’m sure NONE of us would want to be prejudged as guilty first before proven innocent. 30
