If he has any decency left, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV should IMMEDIATELY WTIHDRAW as a judge in the forthcoming impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona.
His declaration that political acceptability, and not evidence, would be his sole criterion for his final decision is nothing less than an admission of INCOMPETENCE, BIAS and the START OF HIS CAMPAIGN for the 2013 elections.
How TRAGIC that for a senator who’s supposed to be a person of knowledge and wisdom, Trillanes seems IGNORANT of, or is DELIBERATELY IGNORING, the cardinal rule that a judge must be TOTALLY IMPARTIAL in rendering a verdict.
Not just a court judge but ANY JUDGE for that matter.
And that a judge should decide based ONLY on evidence or what had been presented before him or her.
So even if
successfully belies every article of impeachment against him with solid evidence, Trillanes wouldn’t care less. Corona
For Trillanes, t’s the people who will have to decide. Whatever the people want, whatever is acceptable to them, that will be his decision.
Then, why the hell did he agree to be a judge in the first place? If that’s his line of thinking, if he can’t be totally fair, he has NO PLACE in the impeachment court.
expect a 100-percent fair trial now? Corona, and the people,
Trillanes has just cast doubt on the impartiality of the rest of the senators, especially those who will run for reelection in 2013, as judges of the impeachment court.
I sure hope the rest of the senators realize this.
’s impeachment trial will be delayed because he will raise questions of fairness and move for the relief or, or sanctions against, Trillanes, don’t blame him. Corona
Blame Trillanes and the Pontius Pilate blood running in his veins. 30
