Echoing the position of the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines (CEAP), the protesters call on the Chief Justice Renato Corona to allow the opening of his bank records involving foreign currency deposits.

The Supreme Court has issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) stopping the Philippine Savings Bank from releasing records of Corona’s alleged dollar accounts which the impeachment court subpoenaed. But LHS seminarian Mark Lopez, one of the protesters, says, “The process will no longer be credible if he is able to hide behind such laws.” –
