Defense counsel comments on President Aquino's latest tirade against Corona

MANILA, Philippines – Defense spokesperson Karen Jimeno told the media that they are saddened by President Benigno Aquino III’s speech where he attacked Corona and urged the public to take a stand.

Jimeno said that despite Aquino’s statements, she hopes that the public will continue to trust the impeachment process. She also pointed out that counsels are not allowed to speak about the merits of the case in public precisely to avoid judgment by the public, and expressed hope that the President will follow the rules as to not violate the rights of Corona.

Tranquil Salvador III, the defense’s other spokesperson also said the President is entitled to his own opinion as is the Chief Justice. –
