MANILA, Philippines -- (UPDATE, 5 p.m.) Senator-judge Gregorio Honasan on Tuesday asked Chief Justice Renato Corona to step down as he has lost public trust to head the Supreme Court.

Honasan wished Corona “strength and honor,” saying that although “we have not proven that the defendant is corrupt…he is no longer fit to preside over the highest court of the land.”

“We have gone through the process to bring as close as possible to certainty it is my opinion that we have not proven  if the defendant is corrupt or if he is malicious,” he said.

He said doubt has been cast on Corona’s capacity of the chief justice.

“What is clear is that based on the doubts cast on his capability to dispense justice and to do his duty, he is no longer fit to preside the highest court in the land,” the former renegade military officer said.

Honasan also noted that he knows what it feels like to have himself and his family maligned in public.
