It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

More than 170 members of the House of Representatives (Congressmen) have signed the impeachment complaint or case against Chief Justice Renato Corona on Monday.

There are 8 grounds cited for the said case, which include his midnight appointment by former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as Chief Justice; his track record marked by partiality and subservience in cases involving the Arroyo administration; failure to disclose to the public his Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth; etc.

Congress would reportedly transmit the case to the Senate either Monday or Tuesday. After an impeachment trial in the Senate, a two-thirds vote or 16 senators are needed in order to remove Corona from office.
