Corona lead defense counsel and Iglesia ni Cristo lawyer Serafin Cuevas has revealed to the Philippine Daly Inquirer that Malacanang is trying to pressure him to quit the trial.
Cuevas says a Malacanang lawyer has visited him several times and relayed that charges against ousted NBI Director and fellow INC member Magtanggoll Gatdula will be dropped if he leaves the
defense team. Corona
Reading the story on the Inquirer website, I found at least two reasons to take Cuevas’ claims as true.
First, Cuevas identified the Malacanang lawyer, a guy, but asked the Inquirer to withhold his name. But to give credence to his claim, Cuevas gave hints on the identity of the guy.
He said the guy is a former student of his at the University of the Philippines College of Law and a member of Malacanang’s ‘rah rah boys.’
If he’s lying, Cuevas will not give any clue to the Malacanang lawyer’s identity. As in nothing.
Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda tried to belittle Cuevas’ claim by asking the defense counsel to name the emissary. But the Inquirer said Cuevas NAMED the emissary but asked that it not be made public.
So all that Lacierda has to do is ask the Inquirer.
Second, the Malacanang guy will not approach Cuevas for a matter as sensitive as his resignation from the
defense team WITHOUT AUTHORITY from the bosses at Malacanang. Corona
For the simple reason that an ordinary lawyer WILL NOT GAIN ANYTHING PERSONAL if Chief Justice Renato Corona is ousted.
And remember, Pnoy himself has been very vocal right from the start of his term a year and a half ago about his desire to replace
as soon as he can. Corona
First, it’s the 100 witnesses the prosecution plans to summon.
Next, the SUPPOSED ‘people power’ rally organized by Social Welfare Sec. Dinky Soliman and the Black and White Movement today to pressure
into resigning. Corona
Now, it’s Cuevas who’s being pressured to abandon the Chief Justice.
All these can only mean one thing – Malacanang and the prosecutors know they have VERY POOR CHANCES OF WINNING in the impeachment trial.
That’s why they’re now resorting to HUGE WASTES of taxpayers’ money through the 100 witnesses and Soliman’s rally, and to dirty tricks like pressuring Cuevas to quit, just to win and SAVE FACE!
This is the real score, the real situation we’re in, people. This is the kind of leaders we have.
It’s up to us how long can they still get away with these bullshits.

BAGO KAYO PAGAMIT KAY DINKY SOLIMAN …
SANTOS of London, United Kingdom
Ang 'kapangyarihan ng mamamayan' o people power ay magiging makabuluhan lamang kung may tamang ipinaglalaban. Ngunit kung ang mga mamamayan ay gagamitin lamang sa pansariling kapakanan ng kasalukuyang pamahalaan ay walang saysay ito. Kung dahilan ng gagawing pag-aaklas ay upang hikayatin ang publiko na tuwirang maitiwalag si Corona sa kaniyang posisyon ay isang kahibangan. Bakit pa hinayaang magkaroon ng proseso ng pagtitiwalag kung ang kanilang kagustuhan din lamang pala ang gusto nilang manaig?

Siyempre, magbabayad sila sa sasali gamit ang government funds.
TAXPAYERS’ MONEY na naman pambabayad nina Dinky sa mga hakot nila.

Let us not be duped in participating into this chaotic and mob like process. The proceedings have been ongoing. Cannot understand why do they have to force everything. If someone is guilty, let the wheel of justice takes its course.
Pasok na lang ako sa work at may mapapala pa ako.. Ano mapapala kodiyanb? Vested interest lang nila iyan. Bagsak na nga ang economy eh makikigulo pa sila. Perwisyo sa lipunan ang rally rally na iyan.
Desperate move by somebody whose appointment could not pass the Commission on Appointments due to her questionable transactions in the past and present Administration...

ANTI-CORONA RALLIES IN THE WORKS!
PINOY NA AYAW KAY PNOY
Ang mga darating lang diyan sa rally ay mga bayaran for sure. Common Filipinos are not even interested with the case. Mga tricycle driver nga sa amin, hindi alam ang nagyayari. This is not as sensational and as emotional as the former EDSA. Ang akala kasi talaga ng abnoy na presidente ay nasa likod nya ang taumbayan. You don't have the charisma of Erap, Pnoy. And Filipinos are smarter now. Kayo-kayo lang diyan sa executive at legislative ang hindi smarter, kasi kitang-kita ang gusto ninyong mangyari.
Hindi naman siguro tanga at bobo ang taumbayan na madala sa mga kadramahan na ginawa sa prosecution. Maliban na lang kung nabayaran ka. Ang susuporta sa mga gawaing ito, yun nga, mga bayaran. CREDIBLE BA? Iyon ang tanong.!
Such waste of time and government resources just to get one man who refuses to be bullied by this administration. Behind all these is the greed to retain HACIENDA LUISITA or get a windfall in billions of pesos. If they can massacre farmers, what is it to remove a chief justice -- no sweat.
DISGUSTING PLAN 100 OF
Yon na nga! Kahit anong kaso, hindi kailangan ang isang battalion na witnesses at tambak-tambak na dokumento. Ang imptortante, ang withness ay personal na nakakita sa pangyayari at susuportahan ang mga dokumento para maging balido.
