Stop To Corona’s Dollar Account Probe Urged

MANILA, Philippines - The Senate impeachment court should advise the Office of the Ombudsman to stop its probe into the alleged $10-million dollar account of Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona.

Tranquil Salvador III, one of Corona's spokespersons, said the Senate can do so since it has jurisdiction over the impeachment case.

"Maaring hikayatin ng Senate ang Ombudsman para ipatigil ang investigation nito sa $10-million dollar account ni Chief Justice," Salvador told reporters in a press briefing at the Philippine Columbian in Paco, Manila.

Karen Jimeno, another spokesperson for the defense panel, agreed and said the Senate impeachment court can issue a ruling asking Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales to defer its investigation on Corona's alleged unexplained dollar accounts while the trial is still ongoing.
