The chief justice of the Philippine Supreme Court denied Tuesday that he stole from the country's coffers and said he would open his bank accounts for inspection if the 188 lawmakers behind his impeachment do the same.
The Philippine House of Representatives impeached the Supreme Court chief justice Monday over alleged corruption and favoritism toward the country's former president, now under hospital arrest for alleged election fraud.
He said he did not declare the dollar accounts in his statement of assets because of bank-secrecy laws that protect the confidentiality of foreign deposits.
He said such a move would help heal divisions caused by his impeachment in "a nation at a standstill."
