Does Renato C. Corona have a clone living in the US?

A Plaza Miranda exclusive

By Raïssa Robles

I’m asking this question because a certain Renato C. Corona is linked to addresses in Tampa, Florida and Mountain View, California by US public records.

Take for instance this address in Tampa -

Corona-data-1

This is the property -

Corona-data-Florida-Bayshor

And here’s the close-up -

Corona-data-PIC-Bayshore-pr

Another address mentioned is Mountain View in California, home of the internet giant Google.

No, I’m not saying that CJ Corona OWNS Bayshore or has a house in Mountain View. Heavens, no.

I’m only saying that a certain Renato C. Corona is being linked somehow to these two addresses by US public records.

It was Yvonne, one of the regulars in our Cyber Plaza Miranda, who first called my attention to this intriguing data.

Take a bow, Yvonne from California.

US records show a match

You might say there are many Renato Coronas in the world. You would probably be right. There’s a long list of them in California alone.

But how many Renato Coronas in the world have “C” as their middle initial; are 63 years old; was born in October 1948; and have relatives named Cristina, Carla, Francis and Charina?

These are the same names mentioned in the documents obtained by Yvonne from US public records:

Corona-data-3

Corona-data-4-new

Actually, I received this info from Yvonne some two and a half weeks ago but I decided to make haste slowly.

I did my own verification using myLife.com and got the same match:

Corona-data-Renato---MYlife

Corona-data-Crisitna-Corona

Corona-data-Carla-Corona-in

Corona-data-Francis-Corona

I wasn’t able to get Charina’s short profile even though it was online because by then I had used up my quota of “free” search.

US-based Tomas “Buddy” Gomez helps out

To counter-check this further, I asked the help of Tomas “Buddy” Gomez III, a former Consul General for the Philippines during the administration of President Corazon Aquino. He now lives in the US.

Yvonne, Buddy and I separately confirmed that not only do the names of Chief Justice Corona’s children match those of the Renato C. Corona found in US public records. The ages of the children are also a perfect match.

I found their birth years in a feature on Renato and Cristina’s love story  (see Corona through Corona’s eyes) – derived by the author from interviews with the loving couple.

According to Renato and Cristina Corona,   their first-born child Carla was born in 1972 which makes her 40 years old today; Francis was born in 1977 which makes him 35 years old today; and Charina was born in 1978 which makes her 34 years old today.

This data matches the ages obtained by People Smart and Intelius. Both sites are sort of digital detectives that draw information on individuals from US public records.

According to Yvonne, who asked to remain unnamed:

The PDF file I sent to you – I bought the full report for $39.95 from PeopleSmart. You can go to www.peoplesmart.com and you can enter the name and it will give you a snapshot of the result. I also ordered the simple one page report from Intelius at www.intelius.com for $1.95 just to make sure that the data from PeopleSmart and Intelius are the same, and they are the same.

I also ordered the reverse phone tracking from Intelius to find out the name registered to the phone number in the report but that was unsuccessful. That was when I decided to call the phone number directly but got the message that the number is non-operational (or it could be fake because the reverse phone tracking should show the previous registered owner of the phone number.)

I also phoned the number stated and got the same recorded  message.

Last night, another commenter named Robert S. forwarded me the following which he got independently from Intelius:

Corona-data-Intelius-logo

Corona-data-NEW Intelius-2

To verify further, I phoned two of CJ Corona’s  lawyers but they did not pick up. However, Atty. Tranquil Salvador sent me a text message saying “Church lang sorry”.

Wow, CJ Corona’s lawyers are indeed a prayerful lot. Last time, it was Atty Ramon Esguerra who had sent me a similar text message. How can Corona not be acquitted when his lawyers are storming the heavens with their prayers?

If this is the Chief Justice, why would his name show up in US public records?

I posed this question to an American executive working in Makati. He replied that Renato Corona’s name could have been captured for any of the following reasons:

All properties have to be registered and we’re very good at that. When you own property, it’s in the name of the owner. If you live in a house for a long time, you would get mail there. You pay utilities like water, electricity and phone. If you buy a car, you pay a tax on that.

The executive noted that Mountain View was the home of Google and was a very wealthy community with expensive real estate.

Here’s how it looks.

Corona-data-Mountain-view-p

Gosh, it sure is purty.

Corona-data---Mountain-view

As I mentioned earlier, I tried asking CJ Corona’s lawyers – Is this true?

I texted Atty Ramon Esguerra the following query – “Does CJ Corona have any assets abroad? Thanks.”

But I got no answer. Perhaps he was too busy.

Again, I asked myself – Is this true?

Or is this a remarkable coincidence?

Or an alternate reality?

Or a black hole that has just opened?

Or is this the Renato C. Corona we all know about here in Manila?

Or are these documents a plant?

Buddy Gomez wrote to me and said he had asked himself  similar questions:

How does an individual’s name end up in the public records of a particular state like Texas or Florida?…..categories could be by birth, marriage, divorce, death, criminal record, traffic ticket or ownership of vehicle and other assets? There are search websites that show names that may be familiar to us in relation to the impeachment proceedings of CJ Corona.

To be sure—-the Coronas do not have any piece of real estate registered in any of their names in the vicinity searched. However……..Renato C. Corona is reflected as ‘has lived in’ 1401 Bayshore Blvd. Tampa, Florida, 33606-3001.

And in connection with the name Renato C. Corona…….the search yielded related parties named ‘Cristina R. Corona’ with same address. Furthermore, Carla R. Corona—705 W Bay St. Apt # 3, Tampa FL 33606; Francis R. Corona—-121 Danube Ave.. Apt # 102, Tampa, FL 33606, and Charina R. Corona of 8900 Cortina Circle, Roseville, CA 95676. An additional name—Anne C. Corona likewise appears in connection with Francis R. Corona.

Pls. note that there are three properties related to the Coronas…..not shown as owners….but that are all in the same zip code—33606. It says ‘has lived in’ those addresses. Interesting?

Corona-Data-Melissa-Marie-GFor color, let me add that in September last year, a Melissa Marie Greene (age 27) was arrested by the Tampa police for being under the influence, possession of controlled substance and cocaine. Greene is 28, Caucasian, blonde and is a renter of 121 Danube Ave. Apt. # 102, Tampa. FL 33606!

Curiouser and curiouser, as Alice in Wonderland once said.

Maybe the people in our Cyber Plaza Miranda who are based in the US can help look for more answers.

Now more than ever I need the help of Our Plaza Miranda to verify the following:

Who is this Renato Corona found in US public records who is identified as being related to Cristina, Carla, Francis and Charina Corona and who is said to “live” in the US?

If this is indeed CJ, does this mean Corona is a US citizen or a greencard holder? He did stay for two  years (1981-1982) in the US while studying in Harvard, but this university is in Massachusetts; and not in Florida or California where the addresses linked to one Renato C. Corona are located.

Does CJ Corona have a credit rating in the US?

I need all your help.

    CONVICTED OR NOT BY THE SENATE IMPEACHMENT COURT – CHIEF JUSTICE RENATO CORONA MUST GO.

    He can only get off the hook with the technicalities raised by his super mega team of topnotch lawyers with skillful spokespersons. His character is already highly suspicious, distrustful and questionable together with things not covered by the impeachment articles.

    The surveys conducted indicating the people’s distrust and wish of his conviction is already a verdict. The verdict of the senate impeachment court must jive with the people’s wish and not by the technicalities on rule proceedings they created.

    The main issue here is if the Chief Justice still has the people’s confidence so he can stay in his job and not because he was given the confidence by a midnight appointment of a fake president. Any appointments by a fake president can be considered null and void.

    CORONA MUST GO.

      There is something beyond money that moves me. And tis is the dream of having a less corrupt country.

    Belissima says:

    This is an excerpt from the Cheap “Dirt” Justice’s very long biography found in the Supreme Court website, it’s laughable:

    His judicial philosophy is centered on his commitment to uphold the Constitution and the law in order that the rights of every man, woman and child are protected and enhanced. When the voice of the weak and the oppressed is inaudible and unheeded, he believes that every effort must be exerted to provide them a forum where they can be heard and their rights recognized. He is deeply committed to the cause of protecting and helping oppressed and abused street-children, and the rehabilitation of former inmates as useful members of society.

    His personal advocacies include the formation of strong moral and ethical values in the legal profession, specially among the young lawyers. He was Chairman of the Supreme Court Program on Strengthening the Integrity of the Judiciary in partnership with the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative.

    Born on October 15, 1948 in Tanauan City, Batangas, the self-effacing and hard-working Chief Justice Corona is married to the former Cristina Roco. They are blessed with three grown-up children, graduates of the Ateneo de Manila University and the University of the Philippines.

    • 382.1
      Steve R says:

      In response to comment 382 by Belissima, Yes, of course it is laughable how Chep J Corona described himself as one who advocates “the formation of strong moral and ethical values in the legal professio.” ‘My foot’! How did Cristina & Renato Corona managed to deposit funds in their bank account – funds that were proceeds from the property owned by Jose & Rosario Guidote Basa. Ana Basa disputed how her first cousin Cristina Corona & her husband Renato Corona could have deposited funds in their bank account. Sister Flory Basa corroborated what Ana Basa said. Sister Basa who is 90 yrs old & actively serving as a Nun is the sister of Asuncion Basa-Roco mother of Cristina Renato. What we have is a 90 year old Nun with two of her nieces who differs in their claims as to how the proceeds from the sale of BGEI property be divided. Sister Flory Basa corroborated what Ana Basa said. In my opinion, Renato Corona, who is a lawyer & held high Govt positions in FVR & CGMA admin had exerted undue influence on the proceeds of BGEI property. Ana Basa, a cousin of Cristina, in 2002 accused her of usurping control of BGEI even though her father Vicente Roco delegated his responsibility to her without a board resolution, and though her mother Asuncion Basa-Roco owned only 10 percent of BGEI’s stock, according to documents.Cristina’s involvement in the BGEI derived from her father and mother, the company’s president and board secretary since 1963. Ana’s father is BGEI majority stockholder Jose Ma. Basa III.The company was incorporated on May 30, 1961 by the grandchildren of Jose Ma. Basa, including Jose M. Basa III, Raymunda Basa, Flor Maria Basa, Vicente Roco, Asuncion Basa-Roco as board directors, and Jose M. Basa III, Randy Basa, Mario Basa Jr., Raymundo Basa as corporate officers . Having viewed the family chart of Jose Basa & his wife Rosario Guidote Basa, there were 5 heirs to the BGEI property, namely Jose M. Basa III, Raymondo Basa, Flor Maria Basa, Vicente Roco & Asuncion Basa Roco. The way I understand the chart, it shows that Sister Flory Basa and Conception Basa remained single & their siblings were married. Only two remaining first cousins are Ana Basa & Cristina Corona. In 2002, Ana Basa accused her cousin Cristina Corona of usurping control of BGEI property. Again, Sister Flory Basa corroborated what Ana Basa said. to the bank account. It appears that Ana Basa disputes the claims made by Cristina Corona & her husband Renato Corona that proceeds from the sale of BGEI property were their’s for them to deposit in their bank accounts. Ana B & Cristina C are first cousins but their aunt, Sister Flory Basa corroborated what Ana Basa said. In my view, there were 8 heirs to the property , her first cousin that Cristina & Renato Corona are the legal owners of the property before it was sold. Thus the proceeds from the sale should go to the stockholders. Sister Flory Basa who is now 90 years old corroborated Ana Basa It wasn’t his money, according to Chief Justice Renato Corona’s lawyers about the 32 million or so pesos in his bank accounts that he did not declare as a public official. Rather, these were proceeds from the sale of property of his wife’s family corporation. Another 11 million pesos was said to be a loan from the same corporation, Basa-Guidote Enterprises Inc. Those revelations were a surprise to Mrs. Cristina Corona’s relatives, with whom she has been feuding for more than 20 years. They claimed that they were never given their share despite being co-owners and Mrs. Corona, who had been appointed as administrator of the corporation, has never given them an accounting of its finances. Mrs. Corona so far has not responded but is expected to testify in her husband’s trial.

    But WHAT IS THE TRUTH that Thousands of Filipinos in Plaza Miranda are now fervently seeking to prevail in their country. Let me borrow from a very young Canadian Philosopher Professor: (Google his words if you like):
    Truth have “dominated the ongoing human obsession with getting things right.” “They are (1) the truth you feel, (2) the truth you are told, (3) the truth of reason itself, and (4) the truth you perceived through the senses.” They seemed the philosopher said, to be irreconcilable with one another. His caveat: “any dominance by one tends to lead, often by its very own efforts, to self destruction,”

    He continues: “Success breeds its own counterintuitive failure: the more we try to establish once and for all the final authority of our minds and senses, the more the attempt backfires. Etc. etc. Nice. Very recent book on philosophy and the arts.

    Filipinos just recently had been ACCLAIMED to be world’s no.1 in social networking. Raissa’s Plaza Miranda probably is NOW world’s no.1 TRUTH BLOG where mostly Filipinos and other people all over the globe have contributed (more truth than lies) which reached the HEIGHTS from 433 comments on first topic to 1433 current topic (as of 8:24 am March 28/12 Atlantic Time). That is an ascent of 330 per cent. THAT IS NOT YET THE TOTAL NUMBER OF COMMENTS (17, 144) for all THE TOPICS written and/or presented by Raissa. In so short a time THAT IS AWESOME and highly indicate the people had been starved for truth for a very very long time now.

    Ms Raissa, I don’t nor I wish to exaggerate, having been ALMOST sleepless in Plaza Miranda, listening, reading, digesting makes it enough for me to say the thoughts of people here ARE NOW WRITTEN IN STONE and shall forever be part of our country’s story. In Russia and other countries it was not easy for people to topple crushing down bronze monuments of oppression. P Noy has started it and the people followed. Plaza Miranda has now become a peoples’ keystone to bring down monuments of corruption. Thanks Raissa and Plaza Miranda. And God be always with us.

  12. 378

    You may call me a troll but I am trolling for truth;
    Fishing for truth is best in the Raissa’s pages
    In Plaza Miranda waters where fishers of truth plant their seedlings for others to harvest and re stock with more truth.

    I avoid fishing and trolling in these polluted waters:

    In answer to Andrew Lim:
    2. Bobi Tiglao (GMA’s former spokesperson) has one, and he lambasts Pnoy on a regular basis. Why is no one raising a stink about it?

    In his column in the Inquirer, why is the comments section closed to the public?

    3. Judd Roy’s father, Ronald Roy has one also. He critiques Pnoy and even Ninoy and Cory there. Why dont most people know about it?

    4. Ninez Olivares has a column in a newspaper. Which newspaper, you ask? E maski ako I never knew such a newspaper existed! You will even ask, e sino ba si Ms. Olivarez? I actually thought she had gone ahead when the Manila Bulletin changed to color from black and white

    |Gary Olivar says:

    Raissa, the sole piece of evidence you’ve presented is what appears to be a credit report that shows Corona’s “most recent address”. This kind of label says absolutely nothing about whether or not he owns that property. It simply means this is the latest address he stayed at while in the States. If it turns out to be owned by a child of his, then staying with your children while in the States is obviously the most natural thing for anyone to do.

    There was no need for you to go into that hyper-extended exposition about a Corona “clone” in the US, not to mention that gratuitous reference to the attractive blonde who may have rented in the vicinity of that address. You are proving that you truly excel in “imaginative writing”, which is what you say you majored at when you graduated with an AB English from UP, with honors pa naman. Level up on your craft, girl!

      Amazing, that Gary, former spokesman of GMA, would advise a fellow journalist on how to write her expose. Isn’t there a journalist ethics among them? In my limited understanding of journalism the editor of the reporter has some controll over him/her. But not fellow employees or colleagues in the profession.

      Good investigative journalism is tell everything, the way it is. Like playing solitaire, every card is exposed. Selective reporting is biased. Gary has been conditioned by prejudiced with his writing style that he wishes everyone follows his technique.

      Mr. Olivar,

      If you had read the above blogpost from start to finish very carefully, Ms Robles was posing several questions to her readers about that curious connection that people finder website (not a credit report) was making about a certain Renato C Corona having lived in certain addresses in the US, along with possible relatives living in other addresses as well. That was all.

      Did she allege anything? No. In fact there is an explicit statement that she wasnt saying Corona owned those properties. But like many of us, it was very curious to discuss and find out if it lead to anything at all.

      Is there anything wrong with posing questions and discussing them? Is there a law against this?

      Judd Roy’s father, Mr Ronald Roy writes a blog too. (Musings by Roy) In it, he bashes Ninoy and PNoy and links them to Joma Sison. I disagree with him completely, but do I want his views to be restricted and stop him from blogging? Definitely not.

      I repeat, did she allege anything?

    One MUST ask the prosecutors (Tupas et al) how did they define “betrayal of public trust” in the memoranda the senators required them to submit.

    In open court, Tupas quoted Fr. Bernas after Barzaga admitted to Enrile that perjury (which Corona may have committed in the “error-filled” yearly SALN forms) is NOT a high crime! Tupas et al were asked to submit a memorandum on what an impeachable offense constitutes.

    On the second occasion, Day 31st I believe, Defensor-Santiago required the prosecutors to define “betrayal of public trust”…something to that effect.

    Was anyone curious to know what the prosecutors placed in their memoranda?

    Another thing that would arouse curiosity is what the defense panel placed in their memoranda (as the defense counsels were also required to submit their corresponding memos). I am pretty sure they also quoted Fr. Bernas on what “betrayal of public trust” means.

    Please remember that Fr. Bernas is like a broken record saying that there must be willful intent and the offense commensurate to a high crime like treason in order for an act or omission to be an impeachable offense.

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Who needs the best defense lawyer when all that is needed is the worst prosecutor?

    Let’s pray (for a miracle?) that the prosecutors asserted their enormous power of initiating an impeachment process in their written memoranda.

    Let it not be similar to the disastrously written AOI.

    Corona lied about academic honors?
    MANILA, Philippines – Did Chief Justice Renato Corona embellish his academic achievements brandished on the website of the Supreme Court (SC) before it was altered just a few days ago?
    Given some inconsistencies with records seen by Rappler, he might have been, at the very least, negligent or had allowed false claims to be made about him. At the most, he himself could have misrepresented his own achievements.
    In his own resumé which he submitted to Malacañang in 1992, when he was assistant executive secretary for legal affairs of then President Fidel V Ramos, Corona said he finished grade school to law school in the Ateneo with honors.
    He made the same claims on the SC website as of March 9, 2012.
    Corona claimed too, in his resumé that he earned his Bachelor of Laws degree “with honors as no. 5 in the class of 44 members.” There were 44 students in his batch.
    He likewise said he finished his Bachelor of Arts course “with academic honors.”
    Corona wrote in his resumé that he graduated from high school with “silver medal graduation honors,” and “gold medal graduation honors” in grade school.
    Our investigation shows these are not true.

    When asked about the university policy on inaccurate claims made by its alumni, Ateneo Loyola Schools registrar Joaquin Julian Agtarap said the university treats each case “uniquely” and handles such cases “confidentially.” He did not elaborate.
    Even in the Supreme Court
    Mirroring information in Corona’s resumé, “Chief Justice Corona had a sterling record as a student. He graduated with gold medal honors from the Ateneo de Manila grade school in 1962 and high school in 1966. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree, also with honors, from the Ateneo de Manila University in 1970,” said the SC website before it was modified recently.

    Commencement programs of his alma mater, however, reveal inconsistencies between his claimed scholastic achievements and university records.

    The commencement programs, distributed during graduation ceremonies, are public records, and contain the list of graduating students, along with those who graduated with honors. They mirror actual university records.
    Following requests by this writer to get Corona’s side since last February, the Supreme Court website had been altered by the last time we checked on Wednesday, March 14.
    In 2010, Marites Dañguilan Vitug wrote in Shadow of Doubt that university records “don’t reflect” Corona’s claim in his profile, posted on the High Court’s website.

    As of March 9, the last time we checked the SC website, no changes had been made. By March 14, the site was sporting a new look, coinciding with the resumption of the impeachment trial and presentations by the defense counsels of Corona. It also said it was under reconstruction and that some links may not be working.

    Hard-working law student

    Corona’s Supreme Court write-up says that “Despite the heavy demands of work and family [in law school], however, he was a consistent honor student, graduating no. 5 in his class. That same year, he placed 25th highest out of 1,965 candidates in the bar examinations with a grade of 84.6%.”
    “Chief Justice Corona had a sterling record as a student. He graduated with gold medal honors from the Ateneo de Manila grade school in 1962 and high school in 1966. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree, also with honors, from the Ateneo de Manila University in 1970. He was appointed by then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in 2010,” the write-up in the new website says.

    According to the Law School’s commencement program, he graduated on March 31, 1974 with a Bachelor of Laws degree. He graduated with no honors.

    It was Arturo D. Brion, now an associate justice of the Supreme Court, who graduated valedictorian with a gold medal for academic excellence.

    Corona married right after college and held a full-time job in the Office of the Executive Secretary in Malacañang while attending night classes in law school. It was despite this heavy load that he excelled academically, his writeup says.

    After law school, he pursued a “Master of Business Administration course (without thesis) at the Ateneo Professional Schools.” In 1981, the SC website says, Corona was accepted to the Master of Laws program in Harvard Law School where he focused on foreign investment policies and the regulation of corporate and financial institutions. “He was conferred the LLM degree by Harvard Law School in 1982.”

    Who is accountable?
    How could there be inconsistencies between the claimed and actual scholastic achievements of Corona? Who should be held accountable for factual inaccuracies?

    The SC Public Information Office (PIO) is in charge of maintaining and updating the website. We tried to reach SC PIO Chief Midas Marquez for comment but he did not reply to all our requests.

    We also sought comment from Corona’s office, but lawyer Angelica Gascon said they are refraining from releasing any comment, considering the ongoing trial against the Chief Justice. Corona is now on trial before the Senate acting as an impeachment court for alleged graft and corruption, betrayal of public trust, and culpable violation of the Constitution.

    We were asked to course our queries through Corona’s counsels instead, but as of this writing, no responses were received. Neither Corona nor Cuevas issued any comments or responses.
    Considering the similarity of information contained in his own resumé and his previous write-up in the SC website, it appears that Corona was himself the source of information in the website of the High Court.Breach of Code of Judicial Conduct Former senator and veteran lawyer Rene Saguisag said this should not be allowed to pass. Canon 2 of the New Code of Judicial Conduct adopted by the Philippine judiciary in 2004 explicitly states, “Integrity is essential not only to the proper discharge of the judicial office but also to the personal demeanor of judges.” For Saguisag, lying and embellishing academic achievements on Corona’s part is a violation of this code. He also said it is relevant in determining Corona’s moral fitness to stay as Chief Justice.
    Doctorate in law Earlier in December 2011, Rappler reported that Corona obtained his doctorate in civil law, summa cum laude, from the University of Sto Tomas (UST) without writing a dissertation and fulfilling the required residency to qualify him for honors. Corona was one of 6 graduates who got top honors during ceremonies that commemorated the university’s quadricentennial celebrations. UST, invoking academic freedom, had acknowledged it waived its usual dissertation requirement for the grant of a doctorate to Corona. – Rappler.comRiziel Ann Cabreros, a researcher for Marites Dañguilan Vitug’s upcoming book on the Supreme Court, works with ANC as segment producer of PIPOL and as news writer.

      On Corona’s claims of Ateneo honors
      By: Ma. Ceres P. Doyo
      Philippine Daily Inquirer
      http://opinion.inquirer.net/25801/on-corona%E2%80%99s-claims-of-ateneo-honors

      Did he lie? Did he misrepresent? Was he negligent?

      The Internet is abuzz with expressions of shock and disgust coming mostly from some graduates of the Ateneo de Manila University, alma mater of Chief Justice Renato C. Corona who is going through an impeachment trial.

      “Corona lied about academic honors!” by Riziel Ann Cabreros is about Corona’s claims, as shown in his resumé, that he graduated with high honors from Ateneo grade school, high school, college and law school. But record checks proved otherwise. (Writer Cabreros works with ANC as a segment producer of “Pipol” and as a news writer. She is a researcher for journalist Marites Dañguilan Vitug’s upcoming book on the Supreme Court, a much-awaited one, I must say.)

      Cabreros asked: “Did Chief Justice Renato Corona embellish his academic achievements brandished on the website of the Supreme Court before it was altered just a few days ago? Given some inconsistencies with records seen by Rappler, he might have been, at the very least, negligent or had allowed false claims to be made about him. At the most, he himself could have misrepresented his own achievements.” (Rappler is an online news network.)

      Cabreros wrote that in the resumé that Corona submitted to Malacañang in 1992, when he was assistant executive secretary for legal affairs of then President Fidel V. Ramos, he claimed that he finished grade school to law school in the Ateneo with honors. He made the same claims on the Supreme Court website as of March 9, 2012, Cabreros added.
      Here were Corona’s claims in his resumé: That he earned his Bachelor of Laws degree “with honors as no. 5 in the class of 44 members.” That he finished his Bachelor of Arts course “with academic honors.” That he graduated from high school with “silver medal graduation honors,” and from grade school with “gold medal graduation honors.”

      Cabreros declared: “Our investigation shows these are not true.” I could only mutter: “Patay kang bata ka!”

      Outside of the grave charges against Corona at the impeachment trial, there have been other questions festering in the moonlight, foremost among them Corona’s midnight appointment by then outgoing President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (now in detention for a string of alleged nonbailable offenses), his fitness and credibility as Chief Justice, etc. Even the doctorate degree conferred upon him by the University of Santo Tomas was under a cloud of doubt because of waived requirements. Recent university students’ surveys on Corona, though pooh-poohed by his defenders, show poor ratings.

      Now another school-related tempest is upon him. After reading Cabreros’ news report, Rene Santayana, Corona’s schoolmate at the Ateneo, wrote: “The point is … why lie about it? There are more than a hundred of us classmates—surely a large number will recall what really transpired in school? What a blatant display of arrogance and contempt! This I take personally because it touches me and it violates whatever small personal unsullied space I can still cling to in this life. I cannot stand idly by and allow myself to be made complicit in this.”

      Cabreros cited Vitug’s book “Shadow of Doubt” (2010) where the latter wrote that university records “don’t reflect” Corona’s claims in his profile posted on the Supreme Court website.
      Here are some info that Cabreros discovered and wrote about:

      A college commencement program, dated April 19, 1970, indicates Corona graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Corona is nowhere in the college honors list, contrary to what is in his resumé and on the Supreme Court website. Supreme Court Justice Antonio T. Carpio and the late activists Edgar M. Jopson and Emmanuel F. Lacaba were among his batchmates in college. Jopson was the valedictorian of Corona’s high school batch.

      Corona is not on the list of high school honor awardees. Corona graduated from Ateneo’s high school department on April 30, 1966 and was awarded a silver medal under the category of “Activity Awards.” This was for his involvement in the Science Club. But he was not on the elite list of those who graduated with honors, contrary to claims in his resumé and the Supreme Court website.

      Corona graduated from grade school on March 22, 1962 with an “Honorable Mention” and not a “gold medal” as claimed in the Supreme Court website. His gold medal was for an “Academic Contest Award” in spelling (Filipino).

      The new Supreme Court website says: “Chief Justice Corona had a sterling record as a student. He graduated with gold medal honors from the Ateneo de Manila grade school in 1962 and high school in 1966. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree, also with honors, from the Ateneo de Manila University in 1970. He was appointed by then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in 2010.”

      Cabreros said that Corona claimed, too, in his resumé that he earned his Bachelor of Laws degree “with honors as no. 5 in the class of 44 members.” There were 44 students in his batch.

      Cabreros disputed this and wrote: “According to the law school’s commencement program, he graduated on March 31, 1974 with a Bachelor of Laws degree. He graduated with no honors. It was Arturo D. Brion, now an associate justice of the Supreme Court, who graduated valedictorian with a gold medal for academic excellence. Corona is not among those listed as having graduated with honors and distinctions in law school.”

      So Mr. Santayana, like you, I also am offended because, yikes, Ateneo is also my alma mater. My heart beating wildly, I went over Ateneo’s sesquicentennial coffeetable book “To Give and Not Count the Cost: Ateneans Inspiring Ateneans 1859-2009,” which contains stories about 150 Ateneans written by 150 plus Ateneans. (I wrote about my teacher Fr. Jaime Bulatao SJ.) I was relieved to not find a write-up on Corona in it.

      At sa punong mahistrado ng korte suprema at mga kasama niya – tinagurian kayong court of last resort at walang bahid na kahit mantsa DAPAT ang inyong mga pagkatao, karakter at kakayahan – mayroon pa bang itinira si CJ Corona na puwedeng ipagmalaki ang Korte Suprema sa buong sambayanan?

Will you be able to sleep at night knowing you let a liar of a Chief Justice stay on? As for CJC, how dare you say you are fighting for democracy the little people and the independence of the judiciary? There’s nothing of that in preventing the Supreme Court employees from helping out in the Impeachment if it is against CJC. A one-sided justice system is it?

    Inexcusable negligence of duty” was given as an example for “betrayal of public trust” by Commissioner de los Reyes.

    As Reviewer of SALNs in his office, the Chief Justice committed such an act.

    Dean Tony La Viña aptly taught us (and hopefully the perceived inept, bungling, g_go prosecutors) what Constitutional Commissioner de Los Reyes had explained:

    [xxxxx, the mere fact of failing to file a true, genuine and accurate SALN by a chief justice is a serious matter. Such omission can be considered rendering him:

    - unfit to continue in office (since he is called to uphold the law and not violate it)

    - prejudicial to public interest (not giving a good example to other officers of the court of lower rank than him who he is supposed to lead)

    - tending to bring his office into disrepute (since the judiciary wields influence through moral ascendancy and if the Chief Justice himself is found to have violated the laws and the Constitution, there will be a loss of public trust in the institution tasked with dispensing justice)]

    —–

    Fr. Bernas always equate “betrayal of public trust” with “treason” as high crimes and therefore are impeachable offenses. Sen. Defensor-Santiago already preached this in open court (Corona impeachment trial) on day 31.

    But here is where the distinction lies, because even “obstruction of justice” is “betrayal of public trust” AND nowhere it is near the gravity of the offense such as treason (being a high crime).

    He failed to include this in his article…

    [MR. NOLLEDO. "In pursuing that statement of Commissioner Romulo, Madam President, we will notice that in the presidential oath of then President Marcos, he stated that he will do justice to every man. If he appoints a Minister of Justice and orders him to issue or to prepare repressive decrees denying justice to a common man without the President being held liable, I think this act will not fall near the category of treason, nor will it fall under bribery of other high crimes, neither will it fall under graft and corruption. And so when the President tolerates violations of human rights through the repressive decrees authored by his Minister of Justice, the President betrays the public trust."]

    There may actually be numerous grounds for impeachment only the Legislature (the HOR suggests, the Senate either accepts or rejects) will know ranging from misdemeanors to high crimes.

    Part of the framers’ statement is this…

    [Fisher Ames of Massachusetts argued for the President's removal power because "mere intention (to do a mischief) would not be cause for impeachment" and "there may be numerous causes for removal that do not amount to a crime." Later in the same speech Ames suggested that impeachment was available if an officer "misbehaves" and for "mal-conduct."]

    Now, with his act of inexcusable negligence of duty, did Corona give justice to his office as Chief Justice under the solemn oath he took in May 2010?

    I pray that by May of this year the time for this reckoning will come.

    Just got information from my lawyer friend about that Lien information. Its true it does not have liens but In CA they do not record mortgage holder because it is a nonjudicial state for foreclosure. Meaning the other Trust deed recording the mortgage has power to foreclose without court filing in case of payment default.

    We do not know if it is paid in full, my fault on assumption based in FL law. The other question is why spouse signed Interspousal grant deed?
    According to Corona they can afford because they both work so why would husband waived his right? Suspicious that Corona might be involved like a cosigner or the husband has financial difficulty the loan interest might be high with him co signing. Still possibility that Corona provided the down payment too’.

I am working in a Real Estate company here in the US and I have access to the database of all property title reports and it’s history and I’ve checked this 1401 Bayshore blvd. address that you have posted in your gossip blog and it is in the name of a certain Venerando and Maria Segunda Batas. If I will not be fired from my work if I release this document, I will release this and from now on, rest assured that I will do my best to verify all the lies that you and your cohort here in the US are concocting just to put your name on all news to make yourself popular at the expense of innocent people.

        Having said that, I expect from someone like you to come up something better than this! It’s true you never said he owns properties in the U.S. but the result of your blog is AS IF HE OWNED ONE!!!!!

        The U.S. is a very wired country and just like I’ve said, a simple google search on his name will give you what you wanted: whether he owns properties or not. The fact that someone paid $40 and didn’t turn up Corona owning a property would have given you a pause about your insinuation!

      johnny lin says:

      Buddy
      In US law. Every time a property is recorded in the county where the city is located Liens and Encumbrances are mandatory recorded on the County Record for reasons I explained in my other comments. I was asking Raissa to publish the Placer County Assessor record so I could explain the sequenses of documents in her latest blog in a very simple way for everybody to understand especially those outside of the US.

      When there is nothing listed under Liens and encumbrances, the Title is free of mortgage, paid in full, no encumbrances, no IRS or state tax liens, no court judgments, no student loan liens, nothing, zilch.

      • 353.1.1
        Tomas Gomez III says:

        Thanks….Johnny lin……maybe Raissa will use the info in tomorrow’s sequel. Btw. I am in San Antonio, Tx.

        • 353.1.1.1
          johnny lin says:

          Have you seen that Placer Assessor record
          On the right side there is Lien Information date Jan 1, 2011 but no lienholder recorded. Following is last recorded date Sept 10, 2008 which coincided withthe documents on Grant Deed. We have that record.

          Based on this record there is no lien as of Jan 1, 2011 which is a new recording date. From tnis I could only assume the loan balance was paid.

          Assessor records need to know the lienholder or mortgage so that taxes they collect could be sent to mortgageholder because sometimes the owner has a mortgage and the real estate taxes are paid by mortgage company. If there are no liens recorded, the owner could sell property free of encumbrance and liens.

          On the other hand if the Assessor does not need Lien information in its record why put that item in the form because it wont make sense.

          Also assessor record does not put sale price in according to CA law. It records its assessed value this time 179,000. If this property is sold lets say on july 1. 2012 assessor will record that as Lien information date July 1 and then last recorded date Jan 1, 2011 and the new assessed amount like 182,000 plus the lienholder of new buyer if any. That makes sense on continuity

    EXCERPTS
    Corona: I’m prepared to lose everything
    By Tetch Torres
    INQUIRER.net 7:12 pm | Monday, March 26th, 2012 0shareNew 0
    MANILA, Philippines—Chief Justice Renato Corona on Monday said he is prepared to lose everything in his fight before the Senate impeachment court.

    “Acquittal will give me nothing new. But if I am not upheld, my life will turn upside down, losing everything that has been always dear to me—my pride, my honor, the stability and peace of our family, my friends, even my retirement pay and pension for which I have worked so hard all these years.

    “Why am I risking all these? For one reason alone and that is in my heart of hearts, I am fighting for democracy and the preservation of the fundamental freedoms that guaranteed the preservation of our way of life,” Corona said in his speech before the graduates of the Philippine Law School (PLS).

    “You should be prepared to lose everything when you are fighting for your principle,” he said.

    Corona said he submitted himself to the impeachment process despite knowing that everything will be thrown at him and his family because “I have done no wrong nor ever violated my oath as a magistrate.”

    “My adversaries can fabricate all the lies they want to besmirch me and my family but in the end, it will still be between me and the Lord God almighty,” he added.

    Recently, reports came out alleging that he has property in the United States, which he denied. He said the house in Bayshore in Tampa, Florida, is owned by a family friend where he stayed a few times. He said it was also a mailing list.

      Yet the CJ say “he’s ready to lose everything,etc.” WHY NOT LOSE A FEW STEPS FROM THE SC TO THE SENATE and SAY EVERYTHING INSIDE THE SENATE HALL?
      tsk tsk tsk.

      “I HAVE DONE NO WRONG NOR VIOLATED MY OATH AS MAGISTRATE” he says. IS HE WILLING TO REPEAT THAT UNDER OATH at the Senae Hall? tsk tsk tsk.

      “IT WILL STILL BE BETWEEN ME AND THE LORD ALMIGHTY GOD” wala sa gitna si GMA? tsk tsk tsk.

      CHIEF JUSTICE! God wants you to OPEN YOUR DOLLAR BANK ACCOUNTS at the Senate Hall! before you can be infront of HIM. God’s timer is counting and when it stops YOU LOSE (pesos and dollars too!)

      CHIEF JUSTICE! You are a public official, WHY ARE YOU NOT OPENING YOUR DOLLAR ACCOUNTS? You have been IMPEACHED and you answered the COMPLAINT yet YOU DO NOT WANT TO TESTIFY DESPITE YOUR PUBLIC PROMISE TO DO SO? WHY? Because YOU WILL INCRIMINATE YOURSELF?

      Lo! and BEHOLD! We find all the guilt in this man. No remorse. SO BE IT !

  41. SilentMajority says:

    CONVICTED OR NOT BY THE SENATE IMPEACHMENT COURT – CHIEF JUSTICE RENATO CORONA MUST GO.

    He can only get off the hook with the technicalities raised by his super mega team of topnotch lawyers with skillful spokespersons. His character is already highly suspicious, distrustful and questionable together with things not covered by the impeachment articles.

    The surveys conducted indicating the people’s distrust and wish of his conviction is already a verdict. The verdict of the senate impeachment court must jive with the people’s wish and not by the technicalities on rule proceedings they created.

    The main issue here is if the Chief Justice still has the people’s confidence so he can stay in his job and not because he was given the confidence by a midnight appointment of a fake president. Any appointments by a fake president can be considered null and void.

    CORONA MUST GO.

    • raissa says:

      Ang masasabi ko lang, your total obsession with MONEY – and your quickness to assume I’m being paid to do this – betrays your own sentiments about money.

      You are obviously being paid to do this and so you assume I am, too.

      There is something beyond money that moves me. And tis is the dream of having a less corrupt country.

      If I wanted money, I would be devoting all my time to writing for foreign publications or would have taken up a desk job in HK. Easy money.

  42. Belissima says:

    This is an excerpt from the Cheap “Dirt” Justice’s very long biography found in the Supreme Court website, it’s laughable:

    His judicial philosophy is centered on his commitment to uphold the Constitution and the law in order that the rights of every man, woman and child are protected and enhanced. When the voice of the weak and the oppressed is inaudible and unheeded, he believes that every effort must be exerted to provide them a forum where they can be heard and their rights recognized. He is deeply committed to the cause of protecting and helping oppressed and abused street-children, and the rehabilitation of former inmates as useful members of society.

    His personal advocacies include the formation of strong moral and ethical values in the legal profession, specially among the young lawyers. He was Chairman of the Supreme Court Program on Strengthening the Integrity of the Judiciary in partnership with the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative.

    Born on October 15, 1948 in Tanauan City, Batangas, the self-effacing and hard-working Chief Justice Corona is married to the former Cristina Roco. They are blessed with three grown-up children, graduates of the Ateneo de Manila University and the University of the Philippines.

    • Steve R says:

      In response to comment 382 by Belissima, Yes, of course it is laughable how Chep J Corona described himself as one who advocates “the formation of strong moral and ethical values in the legal professio.” ‘My foot’! How did Cristina & Renato Corona managed to deposit funds in their bank account – funds that were proceeds from the property owned by Jose & Rosario Guidote Basa. Ana Basa disputed how her first cousin Cristina Corona & her husband Renato Corona could have deposited funds in their bank account. Sister Flory Basa corroborated what Ana Basa said. Sister Basa who is 90 yrs old & actively serving as a Nun is the sister of Asuncion Basa-Roco mother of Cristina Renato. What we have is a 90 year old Nun with two of her nieces who differs in their claims as to how the proceeds from the sale of BGEI property be divided. Sister Flory Basa corroborated what Ana Basa said. In my opinion, Renato Corona, who is a lawyer & held high Govt positions in FVR & CGMA admin had exerted undue influence on the proceeds of BGEI property. Ana Basa, a cousin of Cristina, in 2002 accused her of usurping control of BGEI even though her father Vicente Roco delegated his responsibility to her without a board resolution, and though her mother Asuncion Basa-Roco owned only 10 percent of BGEI’s stock, according to documents.Cristina’s involvement in the BGEI derived from her father and mother, the company’s president and board secretary since 1963. Ana’s father is BGEI majority stockholder Jose Ma. Basa III.The company was incorporated on May 30, 1961 by the grandchildren of Jose Ma. Basa, including Jose M. Basa III, Raymunda Basa, Flor Maria Basa, Vicente Roco, Asuncion Basa-Roco as board directors, and Jose M. Basa III, Randy Basa, Mario Basa Jr., Raymundo Basa as corporate officers . Having viewed the family chart of Jose Basa & his wife Rosario Guidote Basa, there were 5 heirs to the BGEI property, namely Jose M. Basa III, Raymondo Basa, Flor Maria Basa, Vicente Roco & Asuncion Basa Roco. The way I understand the chart, it shows that Sister Flory Basa and Conception Basa remained single & their siblings were married. Only two remaining first cousins are Ana Basa & Cristina Corona. In 2002, Ana Basa accused her cousin Cristina Corona of usurping control of BGEI property. Again, Sister Flory Basa corroborated what Ana Basa said. to the bank account. It appears that Ana Basa disputes the claims made by Cristina Corona & her husband Renato Corona that proceeds from the sale of BGEI property were their’s for them to deposit in their bank accounts. Ana B & Cristina C are first cousins but their aunt, Sister Flory Basa corroborated what Ana Basa said. In my view, there were 8 heirs to the property , her first cousin that Cristina & Renato Corona are the legal owners of the property before it was sold. Thus the proceeds from the sale should go to the stockholders. Sister Flory Basa who is now 90 years old corroborated Ana Basa It wasn’t his money, according to Chief Justice Renato Corona’s lawyers about the 32 million or so pesos in his bank accounts that he did not declare as a public official. Rather, these were proceeds from the sale of property of his wife’s family corporation. Another 11 million pesos was said to be a loan from the same corporation, Basa-Guidote Enterprises Inc. Those revelations were a surprise to Mrs. Cristina Corona’s relatives, with whom she has been feuding for more than 20 years. They claimed that they were never given their share despite being co-owners and Mrs. Corona, who had been appointed as administrator of the corporation, has never given them an accounting of its finances. Mrs. Corona so far has not responded but is expected to testify in her husband’s trial.

  43. But WHAT IS THE TRUTH that Thousands of Filipinos in Plaza Miranda are now fervently seeking to prevail in their country. Let me borrow from a very young Canadian Philosopher Professor: (Google his words if you like):
    Truth have “dominated the ongoing human obsession with getting things right.” “They are (1) the truth you feel, (2) the truth you are told, (3) the truth of reason itself, and (4) the truth you perceived through the senses.” They seemed the philosopher said, to be irreconcilable with one another. His caveat: “any dominance by one tends to lead, often by its very own efforts, to self destruction,”

    He continues: “Success breeds its own counterintuitive failure: the more we try to establish once and for all the final authority of our minds and senses, the more the attempt backfires. Etc. etc. Nice. Very recent book on philosophy and the arts.

  44. Filipinos just recently had been ACCLAIMED to be world’s no.1 in social networking. Raissa’s Plaza Miranda probably is NOW world’s no.1 TRUTH BLOG where mostly Filipinos and other people all over the globe have contributed (more truth than lies) which reached the HEIGHTS from 433 comments on first topic to 1433 current topic (as of 8:24 am March 28/12 Atlantic Time). That is an ascent of 330 per cent. THAT IS NOT YET THE TOTAL NUMBER OF COMMENTS (17, 144) for all THE TOPICS written and/or presented by Raissa. In so short a time THAT IS AWESOME and highly indicate the people had been starved for truth for a very very long time now.

    • If I may add about 60% of the comments are optimally long, INFORMATIVE , MEATY, SUBTANTIVE, PROVOCATIVE AND EVOCATIVE, FEARLESS, ANALYTICAL, EMOTIONALLY SINCERE, FACTUAL and comes from the heart and the mind.

  45. Ms Raissa, I don’t nor I wish to exaggerate, having been ALMOST sleepless in Plaza Miranda, listening, reading, digesting makes it enough for me to say the thoughts of people here ARE NOW WRITTEN IN STONE and shall forever be part of our country’s story. In Russia and other countries it was not easy for people to topple crushing down bronze monuments of oppression. P Noy has started it and the people followed. Plaza Miranda has now become a peoples’ keystone to bring down monuments of corruption. Thanks Raissa and Plaza Miranda. And God be always with us.

  46. You may call me a troll but I am trolling for truth;
    Fishing for truth is best in the Raissa’s pages
    In Plaza Miranda waters where fishers of truth plant their seedlings for others to harvest and re stock with more truth.

    I avoid fishing and trolling in these polluted waters:

    In answer to Andrew Lim:
    2. Bobi Tiglao (GMA’s former spokesperson) has one, and he lambasts Pnoy on a regular basis. Why is no one raising a stink about it?

    In his column in the Inquirer, why is the comments section closed to the public?

    3. Judd Roy’s father, Ronald Roy has one also. He critiques Pnoy and even Ninoy and Cory there. Why dont most people know about it?

    4. Ninez Olivares has a column in a newspaper. Which newspaper, you ask? E maski ako I never knew such a newspaper existed! You will even ask, e sino ba si Ms. Olivarez? I actually thought she had gone ahead when the Manila Bulletin changed to color from black and white

  47. |Gary Olivar says:

    Raissa, the sole piece of evidence you’ve presented is what appears to be a credit report that shows Corona’s “most recent address”. This kind of label says absolutely nothing about whether or not he owns that property. It simply means this is the latest address he stayed at while in the States. If it turns out to be owned by a child of his, then staying with your children while in the States is obviously the most natural thing for anyone to do.

    There was no need for you to go into that hyper-extended exposition about a Corona “clone” in the US, not to mention that gratuitous reference to the attractive blonde who may have rented in the vicinity of that address. You are proving that you truly excel in “imaginative writing”, which is what you say you majored at when you graduated with an AB English from UP, with honors pa naman. Level up on your craft, girl!

    • johnny lin says:

      Raissa is getting response from the biggies of GMA.

      Amazing, that Gary, former spokesman of GMA, would advise a fellow journalist on how to write her expose. Isn’t there a journalist ethics among them? In my limited understanding of journalism the editor of the reporter has some controll over him/her. But not fellow employees or colleagues in the profession.

      Good investigative journalism is tell everything, the way it is. Like playing solitaire, every card is exposed. Selective reporting is biased. Gary has been conditioned by prejudiced with his writing style that he wishes everyone follows his technique.

        Mahiya ka sa balat mo gary olivar, hindi kana dapat sumali at dapat tingnan mo kong ano ang katutuhanan at mga ibedensiyang inilalabas, at sana pag sabihan mo na lang si thief justice nato corona na umupo sa witness stand at nang magkaalaman na dahil kong wala kang itinatago wala kang dapat alalahanin..

      Mr. Olivar,

      If you had read the above blogpost from start to finish very carefully, Ms Robles was posing several questions to her readers about that curious connection that people finder website (not a credit report) was making about a certain Renato C Corona having lived in certain addresses in the US, along with possible relatives living in other addresses as well. That was all.

      Did she allege anything? No. In fact there is an explicit statement that she wasnt saying Corona owned those properties. But like many of us, it was very curious to discuss and find out if it lead to anything at all.

      Is there anything wrong with posing questions and discussing them? Is there a law against this?

      Judd Roy’s father, Mr Ronald Roy writes a blog too. (Musings by Roy) In it, he bashes Ninoy and PNoy and links them to Joma Sison. I disagree with him completely, but do I want his views to be restricted and stop him from blogging? Definitely not.

      I repeat, did she allege anything?

      Level up on your understanding, boy!

      • ramfed says:

        True, Raissa did not make any allegations. She did more than that.. She insinuated.

        Sure, anyone (including GO) has their own biases in whatever test case brought before to comment. His perception may not be as good as mine, but one is still entitled to opine for what he saw err understood. One’s answer speaks volumes, so to speak.

        As a consolation, he couldn’t control his nerve but to comment. That was good enough for a ‘bigwig’ to drop in @ Plaza Miranda cyberspace.

        Hey @Gary Olivar, more of the same, if not better. GO Gary Go.

    One MUST ask the prosecutors (Tupas et al) how did they define “betrayal of public trust” in the memoranda the senators required them to submit.

    In open court, Tupas quoted Fr. Bernas after Barzaga admitted to Enrile that perjury (which Corona may have committed in the “error-filled” yearly SALN forms) is NOT a high crime! Tupas et al were asked to submit a memorandum on what an impeachable offense constitutes.

    On the second occasion, Day 31st I believe, Defensor-Santiago required the prosecutors to define “betrayal of public trust”…something to that effect.

    Was anyone curious to know what the prosecutors placed in their memoranda?

    Another thing that would arouse curiosity is what the defense panel placed in their memoranda (as the defense counsels were also required to submit their corresponding memos). I am pretty sure they also quoted Fr. Bernas on what “betrayal of public trust” means.

    Please remember that Fr. Bernas is like a broken record saying that there must be willful intent and the offense commensurate to a high crime like treason in order for an act or omission to be an impeachable offense.

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Who needs the best defense lawyer when all that is needed is the worst prosecutor?

    Let’s pray (for a miracle?) that the prosecutors asserted their enormous power of initiating an impeachment process in their written memoranda.

    Corona lied about academic honors?
    MANILA, Philippines – Did Chief Justice Renato Corona embellish his academic achievements brandished on the website of the Supreme Court (SC) before it was altered just a few days ago?
    Given some inconsistencies with records seen by Rappler, he might have been, at the very least, negligent or had allowed false claims to be made about him. At the most, he himself could have misrepresented his own achievements.
    In his own resumé which he submitted to Malacañang in 1992, when he was assistant executive secretary for legal affairs of then President Fidel V Ramos, Corona said he finished grade school to law school in the Ateneo with honors.
    He made the same claims on the SC website as of March 9, 2012.
    Corona claimed too, in his resumé that he earned his Bachelor of Laws degree “with honors as no. 5 in the class of 44 members.” There were 44 students in his batch.
    He likewise said he finished his Bachelor of Arts course “with academic honors.”
    Corona wrote in his resumé that he graduated from high school with “silver medal graduation honors,” and “gold medal graduation honors” in grade school.
    Our investigation shows these are not true.

    Even in the Supreme Court
    Mirroring information in Corona’s resumé, “Chief Justice Corona had a sterling record as a student. He graduated with gold medal honors from the Ateneo de Manila grade school in 1962 and high school in 1966.

    The commencement programs, distributed during graduation ceremonies, are public records, and contain the list of graduating students, along with those who graduated with honors. They mirror actual university records.
    Following requests by this writer to get Corona’s side since last February, the Supreme Court website had been altered by the last time we checked on Wednesday, March 14.
    In 2010, Marites Dañguilan Vitug wrote in Shadow of Doubt that university records “don’t reflect” Corona’s claim in his profile, posted on the High Court’s website.

    As of March 9, the last time we checked the SC website, no changes had been made. By March 14, the site was sporting a new look, coinciding with the resumption of the impeachment trial and presentations by the defense counsels of Corona. It also said it was under reconstruction and that some links may not be working.

    Hard-working law student

    Corona’s Supreme Court write-up says that “Despite the heavy demands of work and family [in law school], however, he was a consistent honor student, graduating no. 5 in his class. That same year, he placed 25th highest out of 1,965 candidates in the bar examinations with a grade of 84.6%.”
    “Chief Justice Corona had a sterling record as a student. He graduated with gold medal honors from the Ateneo de Manila grade school in 1962 and high school in 1966. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree, also with honors, from the Ateneo de Manila University in 1970. He was appointed by then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in 2010,” the write-up in the new website says.

    According to the Law School’s commencement program, he graduated on March 31, 1974 with a Bachelor of Laws degree. He graduated with no honors.

    It was Arturo D. Brion, now an associate justice of the Supreme Court, who graduated valedictorian with a gold medal for academic excellence.

    Corona married right after college and held a full-time job in the Office of the Executive Secretary in Malacañang while attending night classes in law school. It was despite this heavy load that he excelled academically, his writeup says.

    After law school, he pursued a “Master of Business Administration course (without thesis) at the Ateneo Professional Schools.” In 1981, the SC website says, Corona was accepted to the Master of Laws program in Harvard Law School where he focused on foreign investment policies and the regulation of corporate and financial institutions. “He was conferred the LLM degree by Harvard Law School in 1982.”

    Who is accountable?
    How could there be inconsistencies between the claimed and actual scholastic achievements of Corona? Who should be held accountable for factual inaccuracies?

    The SC Public Information Office (PIO) is in charge of maintaining and updating the website. We tried to reach SC PIO Chief Midas Marquez for comment but he did not reply to all our requests.

    We also sought comment from Corona’s office, but lawyer Angelica Gascon said they are refraining from releasing any comment, considering the ongoing trial against the Chief Justice. Corona is now on trial before the Senate acting as an impeachment court for alleged graft and corruption, betrayal of public trust, and culpable violation of the Constitution.

    We were asked to course our queries through Corona’s counsels instead, but as of this writing, no responses were received. Neither Corona nor Cuevas issued any comments or responses.
    Considering the similarity of information contained in his own resumé and his previous write-up in the SC website, it appears that Corona was himself the source of information in the website of the High Court.Breach of Code of Judicial Conduct Former senator and veteran lawyer Rene Saguisag said this should not be allowed to pass. Canon 2 of the New Code of Judicial Conduct adopted by the Philippine judiciary in 2004 explicitly states, “Integrity is essential not only to the proper discharge of the judicial office but also to the personal demeanor of judges.” For Saguisag, lying and embellishing academic achievements on Corona’s part is a violation of this code. He also said it is relevant in determining Corona’s moral fitness to stay as Chief Justice.
    Doctorate in law Earlier in December 2011, Rappler reported that Corona obtained his doctorate in civil law, summa cum laude, from the University of Sto Tomas (UST) without writing a dissertation and fulfilling the required residency to qualify him for honors. Corona was one of 6 graduates who got top honors during ceremonies that commemorated the university’s quadricentennial celebrations. UST, invoking academic freedom, had acknowledged it waived its usual dissertation requirement for the grant of a doctorate to Corona. – Rappler.comRiziel Ann Cabreros, a researcher for Marites Dañguilan Vitug’s upcoming book on the Supreme Court, works with ANC as segment producer of PIPOL and as news writer.

He was the editor-in-chief of The Guidon, the university student newspaper of the Ateneo and was secretary-general of the College Editors Guild of the Philippines from 1968 to 1970.

      On Corona’s claims of Ateneo honors
      By: Ma. Ceres P. Doyo
      Philippine Daily Inquirer
      http://opinion.inquirer.net/25801/on-corona%E2%80%99s-claims-of-ateneo-honors

      Did he lie? Did he misrepresent? Was he negligent?

      The Internet is abuzz with expressions of shock and disgust coming mostly from some graduates of the Ateneo de Manila University, alma mater of Chief Justice Renato C. Corona who is going through an impeachment trial.

      “Corona lied about academic honors!” by Riziel Ann Cabreros is about Corona’s claims, as shown in his resumé, that he graduated with high honors from Ateneo grade school, high school, college and law school. But record checks proved otherwise. (Writer Cabreros works with ANC as a segment producer of “Pipol” and as a news writer. She is a researcher for journalist Marites Dañguilan Vitug’s upcoming book on the Supreme Court, a much-awaited one, I must say.)

      Cabreros asked: “Did Chief Justice Renato Corona embellish his academic achievements brandished on the website of the Supreme Court before it was altered just a few days ago? Given some inconsistencies with records seen by Rappler, he might have been, at the very least, negligent or had allowed false claims to be made about him. At the most, he himself could have misrepresented his own achievements.” (Rappler is an online news network.)

      Cabreros wrote that in the resumé that Corona submitted to Malacañang in 1992, when he was assistant executive secretary for legal affairs of then President Fidel V. Ramos, he claimed that he finished grade school to law school in the Ateneo with honors. He made the same claims on the Supreme Court website as of March 9, 2012, Cabreros added.
      Here were Corona’s claims in his resumé: That he earned his Bachelor of Laws degree “with honors as no. 5 in the class of 44 members.” That he finished his Bachelor of Arts course “with academic honors.” That he graduated from high school with “silver medal graduation honors,” and from grade school with “gold medal graduation honors.”

      Cabreros declared: “Our investigation shows these are not true.” I could only mutter: “Patay kang bata ka!”

      Outside of the grave charges against Corona at the impeachment trial, there have been other questions festering in the moonlight, foremost among them Corona’s midnight appointment by then outgoing President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (now in detention for a string of alleged nonbailable offenses), his fitness and credibility as Chief Justice, etc. Even the doctorate degree conferred upon him by the University of Santo Tomas was under a cloud of doubt because of waived requirements. Recent university students’ surveys on Corona, though pooh-poohed by his defenders, show poor ratings.

      Now another school-related tempest is upon him. After reading Cabreros’ news report, Rene Santayana, Corona’s schoolmate at the Ateneo, wrote: “The point is … why lie about it? There are more than a hundred of us classmates—surely a large number will recall what really transpired in school? What a blatant display of arrogance and contempt! This I take personally because it touches me and it violates whatever small personal unsullied space I can still cling to in this life. I cannot stand idly by and allow myself to be made complicit in this.”

      Cabreros cited Vitug’s book “Shadow of Doubt” (2010) where the latter wrote that university records “don’t reflect” Corona’s claims in his profile posted on the Supreme Court website.
      Here are some info that Cabreros discovered and wrote about:

      A college commencement program, dated April 19, 1970, indicates Corona graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Corona is nowhere in the college honors list, contrary to what is in his resumé and on the Supreme Court website. Supreme Court Justice Antonio T. Carpio and the late activists Edgar M. Jopson and Emmanuel F. Lacaba were among his batchmates in college. Jopson was the valedictorian of Corona’s high school batch.

      Corona is not on the list of high school honor awardees. Corona graduated from Ateneo’s high school department on April 30, 1966 and was awarded a silver medal under the category of “Activity Awards.” This was for his involvement in the Science Club. But he was not on the elite list of those who graduated with honors, contrary to claims in his resumé and the Supreme Court website.

      Corona graduated from grade school on March 22, 1962 with an “Honorable Mention” and not a “gold medal” as claimed in the Supreme Court website. His gold medal was for an “Academic Contest Award” in spelling (Filipino).

      The new Supreme Court website says: “Chief Justice Corona had a sterling record as a student. He graduated with gold medal honors from the Ateneo de Manila grade school in 1962 and high school in 1966. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree, also with honors, from the Ateneo de Manila University in 1970. He was appointed by then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in 2010.”

      Cabreros said that Corona claimed, too, in his resumé that he earned his Bachelor of Laws degree “with honors as no. 5 in the class of 44 members.” There were 44 students in his batch.

      Cabreros disputed this and wrote: “According to the law school’s commencement program, he graduated on March 31, 1974 with a Bachelor of Laws degree. He graduated with no honors. It was Arturo D. Brion, now an associate justice of the Supreme Court, who graduated valedictorian with a gold medal for academic excellence. Corona is not among those listed as having graduated with honors and distinctions in law school.”

      So Mr. Santayana, like you, I also am offended because, yikes, Ateneo is also my alma mater. My heart beating wildly, I went over Ateneo’s sesquicentennial coffeetable book “To Give and Not Count the Cost: Ateneans Inspiring Ateneans 1859-2009,” which contains stories about 150 Ateneans written by 150 plus Ateneans. (I wrote about my teacher Fr. Jaime Bulatao SJ.) I was relieved to not find a write-up on Corona in it.

      At sa punong mahistrado ng korte suprema at mga kasama niya – tinagurian kayong court of last resort at walang bahid na kahit mantsa DAPAT ang inyong mga pagkatao, karakter at kakayahan – mayroon pa bang itinira si CJ Corona na puwedeng ipagmalaki ang Korte Suprema sa buong sambayanan?

Will you be able to sleep at night knowing you let a liar of a Chief Justice stay on? As for CJC, how dare you say you are fighting for democracy the little people and the independence of the judiciary?

    Inexcusable negligence of duty” was given as an example for “betrayal of public trust” by Commissioner de los Reyes.

    As Reviewer of SALNs in his office, the Chief Justice committed such an act.

    Dean Tony La Viña aptly taught us (and hopefully the perceived inept, bungling, g_go prosecutors) what Constitutional Commissioner de Los Reyes had explained:

    [xxxxx, the mere fact of failing to file a true, genuine and accurate SALN by a chief justice is a serious matter. Such omission can be considered rendering him:

    - unfit to continue in office (since he is called to uphold the law and not violate it)

    - prejudicial to public interest (not giving a good example to other officers of the court of lower rank than him who he is supposed to lead)

    - tending to bring his office into disrepute (since the judiciary wields influence through moral ascendancy and if the Chief Justice himself is found to have violated the laws and the Constitution, there will be a loss of public trust in the institution tasked with dispensing justice)]

    —–

    Fr. Bernas always equate “betrayal of public trust” with “treason” as high crimes and therefore are impeachable offenses. Sen. Defensor-Santiago already preached this in open court (Corona impeachment trial) on day 31.

    But here is where the distinction lies, because even “obstruction of justice” is “betrayal of public trust” AND nowhere it is near the gravity of the offense such as treason (being a high crime).

    He failed to include this in his article…

    [MR. NOLLEDO. "In pursuing that statement of Commissioner Romulo, Madam President, we will notice that in the presidential oath of then President Marcos, he stated that he will do justice to every man. If he appoints a Minister of Justice and orders him to issue or to prepare repressive decrees denying justice to a common man without the President being held liable, I think this act will not fall near the category of treason, nor will it fall under bribery of other high crimes, neither will it fall under graft and corruption. And so when the President tolerates violations of human rights through the repressive decrees authored by his Minister of Justice, the President betrays the public trust."]

    There may actually be numerous grounds for impeachment only the Legislature (the HOR suggests, the Senate either accepts or rejects) will know ranging from misdemeanors to high crimes.

    Part of the framers’ statement is this…

    [Fisher Ames of Massachusetts argued for the President's removal power because "mere intention (to do a mischief) would not be cause for impeachment" and "there may be numerous causes for removal that do not amount to a crime." Later in the same speech Ames suggested that impeachment was available if an officer "misbehaves" and for "mal-conduct."]

    Now, with his act of inexcusable negligence of duty, did Corona give justice to his office as Chief Justice under the solemn oath he took in May 2010?

    I pray that by May of this year the time for this reckoning will come.

    Some states/counties in the US — Clark County in Nevada, for example — have a Property Search capability in their website. Here’s Nevada’s link. All one has to do is enter the Last Name and First Name and the property is located:

    Buddy Gomez
    Just got information from my lawyer friend about that Lien information. Its true it does not have liens but In CA they do not record mortgage holder because it is a nonjudicial state for foreclosure. Meaning the other Trust deed recording the mortgage has power to foreclose without court filing in case of payment default.

    We do not know if it is paid in full, my fault on assumption based in FL law. The other question is why spouse signed Interspousal grant deed?
    According to Corona they can afford because they both work so why would husband waived his right? Suspicious that Corona might be involved like a cosigner or the husband has financial difficulty the loan interest might be high with him co signing. Still possibility that Corona provided the down payment too’.

    important to know from John Laing MTG the loan balance, start here to investigate plus wire transfers or cashier check from PSB which are not protected by FCD law probably.

    • Rasec says:

      Mrs Corona stand by her husband that they do not own property in California and said it’s her daughter Charina is the owner, it’s her Mrs Corona said, the big question is Why in the world Charina’s husband signed a quit claim to that property..mind boggling really….WE WANT TO KNOW WHY…

    Raissa, I am not like your cohort here in the US that need to pay to order report on the internet that he himself don’t understand what it contains. I have personal access to this database and I read the property history and there is nowhere there the name Corona. Bring it on Raissa, release all the US addresses that you alleged to be owned by a certain person and I will tell the people that you and your cohort are lying.

    • raissa says:

      LOL

      • ding says:

        Hi Raissa! It seems that some of these corona worshipers are all talk and, obviously, kin to the coronas. They should put their money where their mouth is and present some tangible evidences just like what you are doing. These guys are just like the defense counsels always “beating around the bush”! They might have done similar deeds and are just rationalizing it. Anyways, I also have noticed that 99%, if not all, of all transactions in which the coronas have engaged in or a party of, are “shady” and questionable which, for a normal reasonable person, would be suspicious. I admire your courage, determination, and impartiality. I believe that this will not solve all the problems our nation is going through but, a damn good start towards good governance.

    • Jairus says:

      Bwahahaha! It goes to show Raissa is in cahoots with the yellow fanatics. Wake up Raissa, be responsible with your blogs and reject the evil-doers of Malacanang. Give it up before its too late. People are getting pissed already with your meddling of the ongoing impeachment trial.

    You are a mother of all liars Raissa. I am working in a Real Estate company here in the US and I have access to the database of all property title reports and it’s history and I’ve checked this 1401 Bayshore blvd. address that you have posted in your gossip blog and it is in the name of a certain Venerando and Maria Segunda Batas. If I will not be fired from my work if I release this document, I will release this and from now on, rest assured that I will do my best to verify all the lies that you and your cohort here in the US are concocting just to put your name on all news to make yourself popular at the expense of innocent people.

      He just wanted everybody to know he works in USA, as if it is an honor.

      He is suffering now from lack of sales and low commission. He must be the agent of Charina because Charina is the baglady of CJ.

  67. Optimus Prime says:

    This does not prove Mr. Renato C. Corona owns any property in the U.S. If he does own any property in the U.S., a simple google search on his name will verify this. I know this because I live in the U.S. and I own a property there.

    • raissa says:

      Did I say it did?

      I never said that.

      • Optimus Prime says:

        First of all, I want to let you know I am one of the avid readers of your blog and someone who believes in you. I am also one of the Filipinos who believe Mr. Corona is not fit anymore to serve as Chief Justice of our Supreme Court.

        Having said that, I expect from someone like you to come up something better than this! It’s true you never said he owns properties in the U.S. but the result of your blog is AS IF HE OWNED ONE!!!!!

        The U.S. is a very wired country and just like I’ve said, a simple google search on his name will give you what you wanted: whether he owns properties or not. The fact that someone paid $40 and didn’t turn up Corona owning a property would have given you a pause about your insinuation!

        After reading this, your credibility for me has gone down, way down. Instead of being a good ol’ investigative journalist I expected, you come out as a sleazy tabloid gossip writer who’s after sensationalism!

    @johnny lin……is there documentation to show how the $245 loan was settled in Dec. 2010? Since there is no recorded lien holder after Jan. 2011, does this mean that no loan exists with Wells Fargo? If no loan….then no monthly amortization…..di ba?

    • johnny lin says:

      Buddy
      In US law. Every time a property is recorded in the county where the city is located Liens and Encumbrances are mandatory recorded on the County Record for reasons I explained in my other comments. I was asking Raissa to publish the Placer County Assessor record so I could explain the sequenses of documents in her latest blog in a very simple way for everybody to understand especially those outside of the US.

      When there is nothing listed under Liens and encumbrances, the Title is free of mortgage, paid in full, no encumbrances, no IRS or state tax liens, no court judgments, no student loan liens, nothing, zilch.

      • Tomas Gomez III says:

        Thanks….Johnny lin……maybe Raissa will use the info in tomorrow’s sequel. Btw. I am in San Antonio, Tx.

        • johnny lin says:

          Have you seen that Placer Assessor record
          On the right side there is Lien Information date Jan 1, 2011 but no lienholder recorded. Following is last recorded date Sept 10, 2008 which coincided withthe documents on Grant Deed. We have that record.

          Based on this record there is no lien as of Jan 1, 2011 which is a new recording date. From tnis I could only assume the loan balance was paid.

          Assessor records need to know the lienholder or mortgage so that taxes they collect could be sent to mortgageholder because sometimes the owner has a mortgage and the real estate taxes are paid by mortgage company. If there are no liens recorded, the owner could sell property free of encumbrance and liens.

          On the other hand if the Assessor does not need Lien information in its record why put that item in the form because it wont make sense.

          Also assessor record does not put sale price in according to CA law. It records its assessed value this time 179,000. If this property is sold lets say on july 1. 2012 assessor will record that as Lien information date July 1 and then last recorded date Jan 1, 2011 and the new assessed amount like 182,000 plus the lienholder of new buyer if any. That makes sense on continuity

  72. IN our mortal and immortal lives, we can not lose everything; we can lose material things but not our heroism and sins, OUR VERY OWN BEING. Not our parents and children, our friends and everything that’s been part of us, we carry THEM to eternal life. WE WOULD NOT WANT TO LOSE THEM FOR WHATEVER REASONS. Oherwise there will be no one who will want to be part of us.

    EXCERPTS
    Corona: I’m prepared to lose everything
    By Tetch Torres
    INQUIRER.net 7:12 pm | Monday, March 26th, 2012 0shareNew 0
    MANILA, Philippines—Chief Justice Renato Corona on Monday said he is prepared to lose everything in his fight before the Senate impeachment court.

    “Acquittal will give me nothing new. But if I am not upheld, my life will turn upside down, losing everything that has been always dear to me—my pride, my honor, the stability and peace of our family, my friends, even my retirement pay and pension for which I have worked so hard all these years.

    “Why am I risking all these? For one reason alone and that is in my heart of hearts, I am fighting for democracy and the preservation of the fundamental freedoms that guaranteed the preservation of our way of life,” Corona said in his speech before the graduates of the Philippine Law School (PLS).

    “You should be prepared to lose everything when you are fighting for your principle,” he said.

    Corona said he submitted himself to the impeachment process despite knowing that everything will be thrown at him and his family because “I have done no wrong nor ever violated my oath as a magistrate.”

    “My adversaries can fabricate all the lies they want to besmirch me and my family but in the end, it will still be between me and the Lord God almighty,” he added.

    Recently, reports came out alleging that he has property in the United States, which he denied. He said the house in Bayshore in Tampa, Florida, is owned by a family friend where he stayed a few times. He said it was also a mailing list.

    • a Catholic Priest or INC Pastor should talk and give
      counsel to the Chief Justice. His defense lawyers if
      they are Catholics should attend a Lentern Retreat.
      Christian mankind devote the Holy Week for self
      soul searching. This Holy Week is extra holy for
      those trying to foster the alleged truth of CJ Corona.

    • leona says:

      That statement before the MEDIA is like PLEADING AT THE SENATE before the judgment but he’s outside of it. Tricky tsk tsk tsk. Emotional pa! But still outside of the Senate. tsk tsk tsk.

      Yet the CJ say “he’s ready to lose everything,etc.” WHY NOT LOSE A FEW STEPS FROM THE SC TO THE SENATE and SAY EVERYTHING INSIDE THE SENATE HALL?
      tsk tsk tsk.

      “I HAVE DONE NO WRONG NOR VIOLATED MY OATH AS MAGISTRATE” he says. IS HE WILLING TO REPEAT THAT UNDER OATH at the Senae Hall? tsk tsk tsk.

      “IT WILL STILL BE BETWEEN ME AND THE LORD ALMIGHTY GOD” wala sa gitna si GMA? tsk tsk tsk.

      CHIEF JUSTICE! God wants you to OPEN YOUR DOLLAR BANK ACCOUNTS at the Senate Hall! before you can be infront of HIM. God’s timer is counting and when it stops YOU LOSE (pesos and dollars too!)

      CHIEF JUSTICE! You are a public official, WHY ARE YOU NOT OPENING YOUR DOLLAR ACCOUNTS? You have been IMPEACHED and you answered the COMPLAINT yet YOU DO NOT WANT TO TESTIFY DESPITE YOUR PUBLIC PROMISE TO DO SO? WHY? Because YOU WILL INCRIMINATE YOURSELF?

      Lo! and BEHOLD! We find all the guilt in this man. No remorse. SO BE IT !
