In the presentation, Corona has allegedly disclosed 82 dollar accounts in five different banks as of 2011 (see table below). The "transactional balances" for these accounts amount to at least $10 million.

The chief justice urged Carpio-Morales that if he proves her "lantern of lies" are wrong, she should step down from her position.

"Either she does not know what she is talking about, or is purposely misleading the impeachment court and the public. Is she even privy to how the AMLC (Anti-Money Laundering Council) arrived at the bloated numbers?," defended Corona. The Ombudsman said Audit Commissioner Heidi Mendoza of the had helped her analyze the transactions allegedly made by Corona in his accounts.

Corona said he is ready to debunk all of the Ombudsman's claims.
