MANILA, Philippines - Rep. Sonny Angara, spokesman of the House of Representatives prosecution panel, believes the law protecting foreign currency deposits should not protect individuals engaged in criminal activity.

Angara issued the statement after the Supreme Court issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) stopping the Senate impeachment court from opening Chief Justice Renato Corona's dollar deposits.
