The SC agenda on Tuesday included Corona's dollar accounts

MANILA, Philippines – The Supreme Court on Tuesday, March 20, postponed its voting on whether or not to allow the disclosure of Chief Justice Renato Corona’s dollar accounts in the Philippine Savings Bank.

Insiders told Rappler that the SC justices agreed to vote on the matter on April 17. The justices are taking a break starting next week.

Pending with the SC is an appeal of the temporary restraining order (TRO) that it issued on Corona’s foreign currency deposits in PSBank. The bank earlier sought the TRO from the High Court after it was subpoenad by the impeachment court that is now trying Corona.
