Here we go again , violating the instruction of the court —Defense

This is a press release from Defense Spokesman Atty. Mon Esguerra

Defense Spokesman Atty. Mon Esguerra calls on the Impeachment Court to exercise its contempt powers to force the Prosecution to stop “crucifying the Chief Justice, aided by a network and its assets” in the bar of public opinion.

“Kaya nga po tayo may Impeachment Court para dito ang paglilitis hindi tulad ng ginagawa ng Prosekusyon simula pa ng umpisa. May karapatan po si Chief Justice tulad ni Juan dela Cruz,” sabi ni Esguerra.

“We take exceptions to the 1) online posting at 1:46 am, February 1, 2012 (ABS-CBSnews.com) entitled: “Corona has secret dollar account?” Interestingly, the source are unnamed House prosecutors and 2) appearance of the lead prosecutor, Iloilo Congressman Neil Tupas, Jr. before the ANC Headstart discussing the merits of the case on TV and that now “CJ was not accurate in his SALN, among others,” pointed by Esguerra.

Esguerra stressed “if that is how the Prosecution and their media associates handle this impeachment, we are alarmed that the act of the Senate is already being undermined. Imagine, having two trials: the Senate and the public, aided by some networks.” “If the right of our client will be continually pilloried publicly on so-called evidence, never presented or entered into the trial, then we might as well save the money of Juan dela Cruz and stop this charade or stop the live coverage of the hearings, so we stop the pandering, innuendoes and spins,” added Esguerra.

“Masyado na pong bastusan itong ginagawa ng Prosecution sa media,” emphasized Esguerra
