Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales presented “information she had on Corona’s dollar accounts came from a 17-page report of the Anti-Money Laundering Council that was made available to her office in the course of investigating complaints filed before her over Corona’s alleged ill-gotten wealth.”
Ombudsman Carpio Morales testified that the report was given to her by AMLC Executive Director Vicente Aquino upon her request for assistance in her fact-finding investigation against the Chief Justice. The report turned out to be an unsigned and unauthenticated document. Further, it was allegedly obtained without an application with and an order from a court of proper jurisdiction.
Here are the alleged accounts of CJ Corona in five different banks:
BPI-Acropolis – 8
BPI-Tandang Sora – 18
BPI-San Francsico del Monte – 34
BPI-Management Investment Corp. – 1
PS-Bank Cainta – 8
PS Bank-Katipunanan – 6
Allied Bank Corp-Kamias – 4
Deutsche Bank – 2
Citibank – 1
The presentation also showed that from April 2003, Corona withdrew and deposited amounts ranging from $10,000 to $500,000 on the same day, beginning April 2003.
Senator Enrile noted, “My impression is that there is one deposit account and he sliced it into several placement accounts. The accounts were coming in and out of the same deposit account in the same bank”
And Morales confirmed that “It was coming from one deposit account to various accounts”
Meanwhile in a press statement, “Chief Justice Renato C. Corona branded as “quite unfortunate, if not very malicious” the initial testimony of Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales before the Senate Impeachment Court. In a statement issued by the Chief Justice on his alleged dollar accounts and transactions as set forth in a PowerPoint presentation exhibited by Ombudsman Carpio Morales before the Court at the close of the day’s trial, Chief Justice Corona only had this to say: “The Ombudsman’s figures are a hoax… Her Powerpoint diagram is a lantern of lies.”
