REPLAY: Renato Corona Impeachment Trial (Day 1)

Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona will be facing an impeachment trial at the Philippine Senate beginning Monday, January 16, 2012, the first ever impeachment for a Supreme Court Chief Justice in the Philippines.

With 188 congressmen signing the impeachment complaint, more than enough than what is required under the Philippine Constitution, the articles of impeachment was transmitted on December 13, 2011 to the Upper Chamber for trial.

Eight violations were cited in the impeachment complaint against Corona. It is now up to the senators whether or not to affirm the findings of their counterparts at the Lower House.

Covered live by most local broadcast networks, the trial is anticipated by many as a showdown between the prosecution panel from the House of Representatives and the powerhouse legal team defending the head magistrate.

During the proceedings, it is expected that the public would encounter some legal gobbledygook as well as see varying actions (serious or funny) by members of the prosecution, defense and even the impeachment court.
