On the Impeachment Trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona

SP: They are entitled to a compulsory process to compel the presence of any witness that they want to use for the defense of the respondent.

Q: Sir, doon sa extension ng hearing until 10:00 pm, ano ang napagdesisyunan niyo?

SP: Wala pa.

Q: Pero ano ang gagawin ninyo?

SP: We will prolong the hearing as long as the stamina of both panels will be able to sustain it.

Q: So, sir, 'yung four to five hours extension will be possible provided na kaya ng both parties?

SP: Oo. Gusto namin matapos ito. We will not go beyond the 31st of May.

Q: Sir, sabi ng defense hindi po nila kaya 'yung ganun kahaba...

SP: Kung hindi nila kaya ay sabihin nila sa amin pero ako, kaya ko. I'm really trying to finish this case because I'm rushing it but the country requires that we must settle this case one way or the other.

Q: Paano, sir, kapag sinabi nila na hindi nila kaya?

SP: Problema na nila 'yun.
