MANILA, Philippines - Chief Justice Renato Corona's Wikipedia entry was altered on Wednesday to show he died on May 22, 2012.

Below the date of death entry, it said: “Impeachment Court (Senate of the Philippines).”

As of posting, the date of death had already been removed.

May 22 was when Corona faced the public and the senator-judges to testify in his own impeachment trial.

After giving a 3-hour statement, he immediately left the session hall without permission from the court. Many senators saw his move as a walkout that disrespected the court.

Analysts said his walkout doomed his bid for an acquittal.

This is not the first time Corona's Wikipedia entry was changed. There were several revisions prior to the start of his impeachment trial in January.

Wikipedia is open to editing by the public. The site is policed by administrators and members who can make revisions anytime.
