In a report released to the media over the weekend, the Commission on Audit questioned the Supreme Court’s (SC) declaration of savings amounting to P3.19 billion ($73.3 million) in 2012 even as obligations for that year were still unpaid. Allocations for the following year were instead used to pay 2012 obligations. At the time, Renato Corona was chief justice.
