SC Chief Justice Renato Corona impeachment case / complaint

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.
