#TalkThursday: Chel Diokno on Corona Trial

Maria Ressa talks to Chel Diokno to tell us what to expect and what's at stake when the Chief Justice and Ombudsman meet in the #CoronaTrial
MANILA, Philippines – Philippine Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona will testify in his trial, but his lawyer says he will make it personal – dragging in President Benigno Aquino III. Also expected to come to a head: a confrontation with former SC Justice Conchita Carpio-Morales, now the Ombudsman who led the investigation into Corona’s alleged $10 million. Carpio-Morales is a relative of the man Corona identified as his rival in the High Tribunal: Antonio Carpio.

Chel Diokno, Dean of the De La Salle Law School, tells us what this means, what to expect and what’s at stake.
