  • The 20 who found the CJ guilty


    1. Sen. Edgardo Angara
    "I may grant CJ honest mistake of judgment, but given his wide public experience this willful omission and taking into consideration the large amount of money amounts to culpable violation."


    2. Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano
    "It is his moral, human, constitutional duty to choose the constitution and not himself."


    3. Sen. Pia Cayetano
    She said there are no exceptions in the law ordering public officials to disclose all assets in his statement of assets, liabilities and net worth.
    Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment

  • 4. Sen. Franklin Drilon
    Drilon said Corona cannot claim good faith when he failed to declare P80 million in peso deposits and $2.4 million in dollar deposits.


    5. Sen. Chiz Escudero
    Escudero said he disagrees with Corona's position that he need not declare his dollar deposits because of the Foreign Currency Deposits Act.


    6. Sen. Jinggoy Estrada
    Estrada said he is unconvinced by Corona’s explanation that he need not declare his dollar deposits in his statement of assets, liabilities and net worth. “I regret to say that I am not convinced because the Chief Justice is a learned man of law,” he said.
    Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment

  • 7. Sen. Teofisto Guingona III
    Sen. Teofisto Guingona III on Tuesday said Chief Justice Renato Corona is guilty of “constitutional perversion” when he failed to declare his $2.4 million in dollar deposits in his SALNs.


    8. Sen. Gregorio Honasan
    “What is clear is that based on the doubts, he is no longer fit to preside over the highest court in the land,” he said.


    9. Sen. Panfilo Lacson
    "I find the respondent guilty as charged under article 2," he said.
    Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment

  • 10. Sen. Manuel "Lito" Lapid
    He was convinced that the chief magistrate tried to hide his dollars.


    11. Sen. Loren Legarda
    “If we acquit the Chief Justice, we would tragically lift the floodgate for public suspicion and widespread distrust on the highest institution of the judiciary.”


    12. Sen. Sergio Osmeña III
    Did Corona violate the Constitution?  Did he do it knowingly?  Did he betray the public trust? 
    Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment

  • 13. Sen. Francis Pangilinan
    He said the chief justice displayed a disturbing pattern of deception and a blatant disregard of law.


    14. Sen. Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III
    Pimentel said any violation of the SALN law is ground for the removal of a regular public employee.


    15. Sen. Ralph Recto
    Recto said Corona's undeclared assets are so huge - $2.4 million in dollar deposits and P80 million in peso deposits - that "they cannot be brushed aside as innocent exclusions."
    Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment

  • 16. Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr.
    In his explanation, Revilla said Corona failed to live up to the standard set for the highest official in the judiciary.


    17. Sen. Vicente Sotto III
    (no reason quoted at source)


    18. Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV
    Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV said he did not accept Chief Justice Renato Corona's alibi that his undeclared peso deposits are commingled funds.


    19. Sen. Manny Villar
    He found Chief Justice Renato Corona guilty of culpable violation of the Constitution and betrayal of public trust for failing to truthfully declare all his assets in his statements of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALNs).


    20. Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile
    Enrile said Republic Act 6426 or the Foreign Currency Deposits Act cannot be interpreted as exception to the constitutional command to disclose all his assets.
    Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment

  • The 3 who thought otherwise


    1. Sen. Joker Arroyo
    Sen. Joker Arroyo votes Chief Justice Renato Corona not guilty of culpable violation of the Constitution and betrayal of public trust for failure to disclose his statement of assets, liabilities and net worth.  "I cannot imagine removing a Chief Justice on account of a SALN," he said.


    2. Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago
    Santiago said the omission of Corona's $2.4 million and P80 million deposits in his SALN is not impeachable; she found it reprehensible that the Anti-Money Laundering Council report was introduced as evidence in the trial. She said she felt insulted by the use of anonymous sources in producing evidence in the trial.

    "Three times is too much. Are you for real, prosecution? In the Philippines, anything can be manufactured," she said.


    3. Sen. Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr.
    Information was grossly exaggerated against the chief justice.

    Francis Escudero (Independent)
    Gregorio Honasan (Independent)
    Loren Legarda (NPC)
    Koko Pimentel (PDP-Laban)

    the rest are serving their current six-year term until 2016.


    Senators who voted to convict but are barred from running since they are on their second consecutive six-year term:
