MANILA, Philippines – What walkout?

The defense team has repeatedly denied that Chief Justice Renato Corona walked out of the impeachment court after his testimony last Tuesday, May 22. Cuevas told reporters: “It was merely misconstrued. There was no walkout… I thought he was going to unburden himself. How is it a walkout? All the lawyers are here. Nobody left.”

Senators said they were offended by Corona leaving the witness stand. The prosecution said it was a ploy to avoid cross-examination.
