MANILA, Philippines — Supporters of former Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. gathered outside the Sandiganbayan on Friday for the promulgation of his plunder case.
The anti-graft court First Division is set to promulgate its verdict on Revilla’s P224.5-million plunder case on the pork barrel scam.
Supporters were hopeful that the former Senator will be acquitted for plunder.
This will be the first judgment in the multi-billion pork barrel scam allegedly masterminded by businesswoman Janet Lim-Napoles.
Revilla was among the so-called “PDAF-scam senators” running for Senate in the 2019 midterm elections, along with Jinggoy Estrada and Juan Ponce Enrile.
Revilla is still detained at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center in Camp Crame, Quezon City. /muf
