MANILA, Philippines -- The head of the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) confirmed Wednesday that he submitted a report to the Ombudsman on the bank accounts of former Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona.

In an exclusive interview on ANC's "Inside Business," AMLC Executive Director Vicente Aquino said the report was based on information that the council received from banks and other institutions.

During the Corona impeachment trial, Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales testified that she sought the AMLC's help in investigating Corona's assets.

Morales also testified it was Aquino himself who handed to her the AMLC report on Corona's accounts. - Prime Time, ANC, June 27, 2012
