While it seems like the younger and more dapper gentlemen of the prosecution is winning it out on the wardrobe department, there’s one man from the defense–except Justice Cuevas–who seems to be up for the challenge.
Meet Atty. Joel Bodegon, a UP educated lawyer who served with the Office of the Solicitor General. Amidst the ties and barongs we see in the day-to-day impeachment proceedings, this man introduces some quirkiness through his bow-ties (clip on or not, give him props for originality) and his round Potter-like spectacles.
Whether you still want Renato Corona to be convicted or be acquitted is now in your likings. After the 44 days of impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona and the delivery of “guilty as charged” by Senate President JPE, what will happen now in the Philippines? Are we going to grow now? Are we going to move as one? I think nothing will change as long as our leaders are still enveloped in getting revenge. Hearing the speeches of the senator judges (over at youtube) and reading the newspapers in delivering their verdict, I would say only few are worthy enough to call themselves credible senators and others are just on their way to making sure they would claim again a position for the next election. That sucks but that is Philippine politics.
I personally wanted Renato Corona to be acquitted but it didn’t happen but one thing I’m certain of myself, and I know some will agree to those who have shared my idea, that Chief Justice Renato Corona have left a challenge to every leader of this nation regarding the transparency of their wealth.
Renato Corona has now been impeached from his position as the Chief Justice so let us now leave him to live a normal life and let us just hope that there will be better days ahead of our dear country… if ever I will still be able to say that I’m proud of this land.
