Defense presents letter of Mrs. Corona to The Columns detailing problems of the condominium unit. Lim says after submitting the letter to the board of directors, P18,000 was waived.

Lim explains amount waived.

Enrile to Defense: The only question is her acceptance of the unit? And yet this was not included in the SALN of the Chief Justice.
