D-day: Historic vote on Chief Justice Renato Corona


After 44 trial days in more than four and a half months, it’s decision day for the Philippines.  23 senators will vote to convict or acquit the Philippines’ Chief Justice on impeachment charges against him.  The prosecution and defense summarized their arguments Monday.  The key points: should public officials declare their dollar accounts and commingled funds?  Each senator will announce his/her decision and then have 2 minutes to explain why.  The vote will be done in alphabetical order.


Read and watch the prosecution arguments here,  the defense arguments here, the key issues here  and where the senators stand here – all on Rappler.
