Malacanang Releases Official Statement on Renato Corona Guilty Verdict

Malacanang, through Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte, released an official statement related to the guilty verdict of 20 Senator-judges on Chief Justice Renato Corona Impeachment case.

Here are the full text and video of Malacanang’s official statement:

"This afternoon, 20 Senators voted to convict Mr. Renato C. Corona on Article II of the Articles of Impeachment.

Our democratic institutions have been strengthened and have been proven to work.

Mr. Corona is merely the public face of the things that ail our justice system.

Let us never forget that those who come to court, be they rich or poor, must do so in the expectation of receiving impartial justice from those who uphold both the spirit and the letter of the law.

The verdict of the Senate is a step forward in terms of restoring public confidence in our courts, and trust in the members of the judiciary."
