Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonio Carpio has a dissenting opinion on granting the TRO on the subpoena for the dollar bank accounts of Justice Renato Corona.
The High Tribunal’s decision in granting a TRO on the Senate Impeachment Court’s subpoena is making the Philippines dollar accounts haven for ill-gotten wealth.
The Associate Justice said the TRO undermines laws meant to uphold transparency and accountability of government officials and employees, although there were compelling legal grounds to access the Corona dollar bank accounts.
It makes a mockery of all existing laws designed to insure transparency and good governance in public service and it also encourages government officials and employees to hide their true wealth by simply opening a foreign currency bank account.
