Lawyers of Chief Justice Renato Corona had better ask for a subpoena for Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte.
She might know something they don’t on how the PSBank records of the Chief Justice ended up in the hands of the prosecution.
In a radio interview Saturday, Valte practically cleared the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) as being the source of
records, categorically stating that “we know that the BSP, being the regulator
of banking institutions, will not allow these things to happen.” Corona
Think about these, people:
Valte is not an official of the BSP. She is not a senator or a staff member of the Senate committee investigating the leakage of
bank records. Corona
Anybody correct me if I’m wrong but neither is there a separate investigation being conducted by Malacanang on the issue.
So what legal, professional or moral right does she have to immediately and sweepingly clear the BSP of any wrongdoing in the leakage of
bank records? Corona
When a person declares another person (s) as innocent of an illegal act, he or she should have a basis for doing so.
Valte should be asked to reveal hers.
Especially since she also categorically declared that there would be no cover-up when asked to comment on BSP examiner Jerry Leal, whom some senators suspect as being the source of the leak.
After all, truth and transparency are two of the favorite words of his big boss Pnoy.
So as Malacanang often puts it, if Valte has nothing to hide, then there should be no problem for her to testify in the impeachment trial and explain her basis for acquitting the BSP.
If Valte won’t testify, then she and the rest of Malacanang officials including Pnoy, deserve NO CREDIBILITY from now on for whatever they say against
They should all have the decency to SHUT UP once and for all!

ARE YOU IN THIS WORLD, PNOY?
Theft should never benefit anyone. Yet, here we have personal information, OWNED by the Chief Justice, and entrusted to a bank, obtained unlawfully by the prosecution, and no outrage is heard by the country's chief enforcer of laws! Stealing is stealing, and all who are parties to it must be punished. Worse, the anti-Corona crowd condones it. They sanction it under the battlecry of "letting the truth come out." So what then will I tell my children -- it is OK to steal, if it is in the service of truth?
We are the world! 30
