MANILA, Philippines - Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago on Wednesday again scolded the House prosecution team for dropping 5 of the 8 Articles of Impeachment against Chief Justice Renato Corona.

Santiago pointed out the prosecutors had wanted to present so many pieces of evidence and witnesses only to drop it after just 25 days of trial. She said it was the first time she had heard of prosecutors deciding to stop presenting evidence about some of the allegations in their complaint. She also said it was unheard of for prosecutors to rest their case with a reservation to present witnesses and evidence once these are ready.

ANC footage showed one of the prosecutors covering his ears during Santiago's tirade.
