Two ALARMING REALITIES were proven by Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales with her expose and testimony on the $10 million she claimed was owned and kept by Chief Justice Renato Corona in 82 bank accounts.
First: FAIR PLAY is a ‘NO-NO’ when it comes to people perceived as enemies or disliked by Pnoy
DON’T FORGET, guys: Morales admitted she DELIBERATELY DID NOT MENTION in her order to Corona the documents she had on the $10 million, which she says came from the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC).
Kumbaga, pinaratangan si Corona ng kawalanghiyaan, at inutusan pang magpaliwanag, pero HINDI NAMAN SINABI kung ano ang nasehan.
But take note: Morales GAVE A COPY of the supposed AMLC papers to Speaker Feliciano Belmonte THREE DAYS OR SO IN ADVANCE before she testified on and bared the documents in the Senate Impeachment Court.
Even if Belmonte, or for that matter any other member of the House of Representatives, WILL NOT testify in the impeachment court, or was not linked to the issue in any manner whatsoever,
And, therefore, had NO IMMEDIATE NEED for the documents.
This apart from the publication of Morales’ order to Corona to explain the supposed $10 million, again without mentioning the AMLC documents to give the Chief Justice an immediate chance for an effective defense.
Where is fair play?
Pangalawa: Kapag kalaban o kinaiinisan ni Pnoy, WALANG BATAS-BATAS sa gobyernong ito.
Under the law, Morales should have GOTTEN A COURT ORDER FIRST before asking the AMLC for documents. The AMLC cannot release any document without a COURT ORDER.
But Morales herself ADMITTED that the EXACT OPPOSITE happened.
She did not have a court order with her when she asked for, and was given, the AMLC documents.
If the law can be DISREGARDED WITH EASE just to destroy Corona, what guarantee do we ordinary mortals have that we won’t suffer the same fgate once we incur the ire of the powers that be?
As I’ve written before, only a DICTATORSHIP has little or no regard at all for the law and fair play. 30
