As shown in live broadcast by ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC) that day, CJ Corona appeared before the Senate again and answered questions from the senator-judges particularly about his financial status, wherein his wealth is being questioned.

Earlier that day, the 63-year old SC Chief Justice, who was hospitalized last Tuesday after he spoke for about three hours before the Senate, apologized and later submitted his signed waiver, noting that he is now authorizing all government agencies to open his bank accounts without any condition.

Later, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano asked CJ Corona if he is willing to reveal how much is his dollar account and the Chief Justice said he has more or less $2.4 million in his four dollar accounts, stressing out that the money was not deposited in the said amount.

Apparently, CJ Corona also revealed that he has a separate peso bank account amounting to around P80 million 3 peso bank accounts, but noted that they are co-mingled funds and he do not own them, citing among them were BGEI proceeds, savings from her daughters Charina and Carla.

Meanwhile, the Chief Justice also denied the allegations of Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales that he has 82 bank accounts amounting to $10 million-$12 million, and said he thinks that she allowed herself to be used by Malacanang, asking her to resign from her post.

At around 5 p.m., CJ Corona was discharged upon his request, citing health reasons, with Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile saying that the oral argument will be held on Monday, May 28, and the verdict will be announced immediately after.
