Representative Bong Revilla conveyed a stunner as he exposed that amid the impeachment trial of CJ Corona in 2012, DILG secretary Mar Roxasdrove him to NoyNoy Aquino’s home in Malacanang, and after that president Aquino personally asked him for the impeachment of Corona.
Messy Politics: In a report from GMA News Online on 2014, Revilla said that during the breakfast at Bahay Pangarap where PNoy used to live, the previous president requested his assistance in indicting Corona. Noynoy was asking an individual support from him, and he lamented that he obliged the president’s demand.
“Pare, parang awa mo na. Ibalato mo na sa akin ito. Kailangan siya [Corona] ma-impeach.”
The former president pleaded according to Revilla.
Meddling With Affairs
Revilla also complained that PNoy’s administration is into the habit of meddling with the other government branches’ affairs. He also accused Aquino of excessive politicking.
“Tama po ba na habang nililitis ang dating Chief Justice na si Renato Corona ay kailangan makialam ang mismong Pangulo ng Republika sa isang prosesong legal na dapat ay independyente?”
It can be recalled that CJ Corona was impeached last May 2012 for allegedly not filing his Statement of Assets and Liabilities or SALN. It was Corona who accused then president Noynoy Aquino III of influencing the Supreme Court to rule in favor of the pork barrel (DAP) of the president as legal and constitutional.
Bong Revilla, who was recently acqu1tted of Plund3r charges regarding the so-called PDAF scam, also hit the ex-president for not delivering on his promise of “Daang Matuwid”, with all the corruption and the countless failures that the Aquino administration has been involved. It was more of a long and winding road during the PNoy presidency.
