Coming out of the woodwork, Ana Basa and Sister Flory add to the woes of Chief Justice Renato Corona. What has been a family squabble for three decades is turning into a sensational story that adds to serious misgivings on the character of the Chief Justice.
Out of the woodwork, Ana Basa talks about the family corporation Basa-Guidote Enerprises Inc. (BGEI) and how the Coronas deprived them of their participation in the company. A follow thru by her Aunt, Sister Flory a ninety year old nun of the Franciscan order and now the darling of the press, roused staunch Corona sympathizer Mon Tulfo to withdraw his support of the beleaguered chief justice.
Questions have been asked by the Corona camp: Why only now?
Out of the woodwork is meant to criticize people who suddenly appear in public revealing their opinions when previously they did not make themselves known. Does this hold with the family of Mrs. Corona coming out this late? Perhaps the better idiom is “the cat is out of the bag.”
Or “throw in the towel?”
