MANILA, Philippines -- Senator-judge Manny Villar on Tuesday voted to convict Chief Justice Renato Corona for violating Article 2 of the Articles of Impeachment.
Villar said he based his decision on Corona's admission that he owns the peso and dollar accounts that were not included in the magistrate's statement of assets, liabilities, and net worth.
He also recalled how he himself was subject of a black propaganda campaign when he ran against President Benigno Aquino III in the 2010 elections.
"Mabuting tao si CJ Corona pero sa kasong ito, sya ay guilty (Corona is a good man, but in this case, he is guilty)," Villar said in conclusion of his explanation of his vote.
