Philippines: Ombudsman: Corona made ‘significant’ dollar transactions during 2004, 2007 polls

 Citing documents provided by the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC), Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales on Monday revealed that Chief Justice Renato Corona made “signifcant” dollar transactions during the 2004 and 2007 elections and the day he was impeached in December last year.
During Monday’s impeachment trial, Morales said Corona has had at least $10 million in transactional balances in 82 US accounts in five banks.
“[In these accounts] there were significant deposits and withdrawals on very significant dates including the 2004 and 2007 elections, as well as [the] week he was impeached,” Morales said while testifying as a “hostile witness” for the defense panel.
She added that Corona also made “significant” transactions on December 12, 13, 15, 19, 20, and 22, 2011.
On Dec. 12, 2011, the day Corona was impeached, one of his time deposits worth $418,193.32 was terminated, Morales said. This was supposedly added to a BPI San Francisco del Monte account.
From this amount, she said $417,978.80 was deducted and transferred to a regular trust fund account.
