MANILA - From Renato to Panfilo.

Lawyer Karen Jimeno, the former spokeswoman of ex-Chief Justice Renato Corona's defense team in the Senate impeachment trial, is now the spokesman of rehabilitation czar for "Yolanda" Panfilo Lacson.

Jimeno is currently the Director of Communications for External Affairs of the Office of the Presidential Adviser on Rehabilitation and Recovery. She was asked to join the office in January.

As spokeswoman, Jimeno communicates with international donors, local government units and government agencies in bringing help to those affected by super typhoon Yolanda.

Jimeno said there should be no politicking in her new work since the Yolanda tragedy is not in any way connected to the Corona trial.

She also said her position remains unchanged that the government used the wrong process in removing Corona from office. Report by DZMM
