AN ANGRY PRESIDING OFFICER Juan Ponce Enrile berated defense counsels for the actions of their client, Chief Justice Renato Corona after he walked out of the impeachment trial Tuesday afternoon.
Enrile said the impeachment court had given Corona as much leeway and courtesy as was expected for the head of a coequal branch of government. But in return, Enrile said he expected Corona to show some respect as well to the impeachment court.
Corona had walked out of the impeachment court after delivering a two hour tirade against President Benigno S. Aquino III, Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales, and the members of the House of Representatives who signed the impeachment complaint against him.
