The mere filing of the Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net worth (SALN) does not constitute disclosure, according to constitutionalist Christian Monsod. He said disclosure means that SALN should be easily available to the public. He also urged Senator-judges in the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona to refrain from moves that can be interpreted as partiality.
