This is one of my drawings in relation to the tension between the Philippines and China over the Scarborough Shoal. 

Yesterday, Chief Justice Renato Corona  finally took the witness stand to give his explanations on various articles of impeachment. Of course, he denied all the accusations. And so it is for the people or the public to decide whether Corona was able to parry all the points leveled against him. It is for the senator judges to decide on his fate.

Personally, there were facts presented that could probably sway public opinion or decision of the senator judges whom I believed were or are for the truth and not as extensions of Malacañang out to pulverize him for "political vendetta" in line with the issue of Hacienda Luisita.

I am not sure if the statement of Corona before the impeachment court had positive effects on the people and the senators judges. But I am sure that his walkout was a terrible blow on his efforts to fight for the, he claimed, truth. His "walkout" preluded with "the chief justice wished to be excused" caught everyone flat-footed, I mean, including his counsels. 

Anyways, I am hoping that truith will come out in the end.
