MANILA, March 19 -– On the 31st day of the impeachment trial against Supreme Court (SC) Chief Justice Renato Corona, the defense presented its 10th witness Atty. Randy Rutaquio, the register of deeds of Taguig City.

For the second time around, the defense presented a witness who was also presented by the prosecution as its own witness before.

Defense counsel Atty. Noel Lazaro said that their third witness for today's hearing, is being presented to show the basis for the non-inclusion of the McKinley property in CJ Corona's SALN (statement of assets, liabilities and net worth).

Rutaquio told the Senate Impeachment Court that Corona's daughter Charina bought the McKinley property from the Megaworld Corporation (Megaworld).

Lazaro said that the deed of sale was executed and authenticated in the United States by a Philippine consul on behalf of Charina Corona.

No cross-examination was conducted by the prosecution on the Taguig register of deeds. (PNA)
