End is near for Corona Trial: what to expect

A CONVICTION: The prosecution is confident they presented a solid case to convict Chief Justice Renato Corona

On Monday, May 28, the prosecution and defense panels will sum up their arguments and evidences presented during the over-4-month-long impeachment trial of Chief Justice Corona. Did Chief Justice Renato Corona betray public trust and violate the Constitution? The votes to acquit or convict the first Supreme Court chief to face an impeachment trial will be closely monitored as the final decision will have an implication on Philippine politics, economy, and general future.

The senator-judges, with some up for re-election in 2013, will be briefly explain their votes either on May 28 or 29 as the nation awaits the final verdict.
