Renato Corona’s ‘Ill-gotten’ Wealth will still be Assessed by the Senate

Chief Justice Renato Corona’s alleged ‘ill-gotten’ wealth will still be discussed by the senator-judges, despite ruling on Article 2 of the impeachment complaint.

The Senate ruled Wednesday that the Article 2 will only deal with the alleged non-disclosure of net worth and not on the allegation of ill-gotten wealth.

Juan Ponce Enrile, the Senate president will still allow the prosecutors to try to prove that Corona owns properties he did not disclose.

The respondent have allegedly accumulated ‘ill-gotten’ wealth, acquired assets of high values and having bank accounts with huge deposits.

They have to present evidence because ‘ill-gotten’ is a conclusion. The factual matter that requires evidence is in paragraphs two and three.
