MANILA, Philippines - The prosecution panel for the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona has asked the Senate to summon him and his family, as well as documents on their various properties and income tax returns.

In a request for the issuance of subpoenas filed on Thursday, the House of Representatives prosecution panel requested the Senate to invite Corona, his wife, Cristina; their children, Charina, Francis, and Carla Corona-Castillo; and his son-in-law, Constantino Castillo III to the trial.

The prosecution also asked the impeachment court to require Corona and his family to bring with them all transfer certificates of title and condominium certificates of title of 45 properties registered under their names, and other documents related to the "acquisition, disposition, ownership, possession or enjoyment of the properties."

The prosecutors attached a document from the Land Registration Authority listing the properties of the Coronas.

Aside from this, the Coronas were asked to bring copies of their income tax returns from 1991 to 2011.
