As shown live at local networks that day, the 23 senators, including Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile announced their verdict on the Article 2 of the Corona impeachment trial, where CJ Corona was impeached after a 20-3 vote from the senator-judges.

Apparently, Sen Lito Lapid, who was known to have not finished a college course and not able to speak English well enough, and became an actor and later elected as Pampanga governor, spoke in Filipino language as he explained his ‘guilty’ verdict to CJ Corona.

Lapid, 56, noted that he was moved by Corona‘s story about how his family suffered during the entire impeachment trial but stressed out that his “picha pie” did not convince him, referring to the pie graph on the dollar accounts the chief justice presented in a slide show.

“Yon pong ipinrisinta ni Congressman Fariñas, malinaw na si chief justice ay lumabag sa batas. Hindi po ako nagmamarunong dito. Ang ginagamit ko lang dito ay konsensya. Ako po ay representante ng masa rito.” Sen Lito Lapid said on his speech.

(The presentation of Congressman Fariñas clearly shows that the Chief Justice violated the law. I am not pretending to be intelligent. I am just using my conscience. I am the representative of the masses here.)

“Dedesisyunan po kataas-taasang hukom ng ating bansa ng isang high school graduate lamang…Pasensya na po. Pasensya na po. Ang hatol ko po sa inyo, guilty.” Sen Lito Lapid added, noting that he even took his oath in front of CJ Corona.

(The Supreme Court Chief Justice will be judged by a high school graduate only…I am sorry. I am sorry. My verdict to you is ‘guilty’.)
