According to the request sent by Corona’s camp, the House members will be examined “regarding the circumstances and events that transpired on Dec. 12 which led to the impeachment of CJ Corona.”

The six House members requested to appear during the first day of the impeachment trial are Iloilo Rep. Niel Tupas Jr., chief public prosecutor, House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr., House Secretary Marilyn Barua-Yap, Cavite Rep. Jesus Remulla, Batangas Rep. Hermilando Mandanas and Navotas City Rep. Tobias Tiangco.

Remulla, Mandanas and Tiangco were not among the 188 of the 284 representatives who signed the impeachment complaint.

Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, the presiding officer of the impeachment trial, said he will first consult with the other senator-judges if the impeachment court could summon the six members of the House due to “inter-parliamentary courtesy.”
