Corona Defense Team Breaking Apart?

Atty. Karen Jimeno, one of the spokespersons of the defense panel of Chief Justice Renato Corona in the impeachment trial, on Monday, May 21, 2012, has denied reports that their team is breaking apart.

In an interview on ANC’s morning show “Headstart,” Jimeno said the controversial post of activist lawyer and professor Harry Roque on Twitter isn’t true.

Roque tweeted the following over the weekend:

“Sinking ship: : first Karen Jimeno gors missing. Now, Judd Roy withdrawing as counsel. Bye bye Corona.”

Jimeno revealed that she was with Roy at the time when the news about Roque’s tweet reached her attention. She added that her friends have been texting her, asking what happened and if she was okay.

Jimeno insists that Corona’s defense team is intact.

The Chief Justice is expected to take the witness stand on Tuesday, May 22, 2012, to answer allegations, among them his alleged multi-million dollar deposit.
