Senators Bong Revilla, Juan Ponce Enrile, and Jinggoy Estrada set to answer new plunder charges

(L-R) Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Bong Revilla, and Jinggoy Estrada react to new charges of graft and plunder filed by the Office of the Ombudsman against them in three separate complaints. Senator Estrada says he will address the issue in the proper forum; Senator Enrile avers he is ready to face the case; and Senator Revilla vows to clear his name.


Handa raw harapin nina Senador Juan Ponce Enrile, Senador Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., at Senador Jinggoy Estrada ang bagong plunder case na isinampa laban sa kanila ng Field Investigation Office (FIO) ng Office of the Ombudsman.

Ito ay kaugnay pa rin ng pagkakasangkot diumano nila sa P10-billion pork barrel scam.

Ayon sa report ng GMA News, kinuwestiyon ni Senator Estrada ang bilis ng pagpa-file ng bagong plunder case, ngunit handa raw siyang sagutin ito.

"Napakabilis naman niyan... I will answer it in the proper forum, all charges in the proper forum," sabi ni Senator Estrada sa isang panayam.

Tila hindi rin naman nababahala si Senate Minority Leader Juan Ponce Enrile sa bagong kaso na isinampa laban sa kanya.

Sabi niya, "Ang balita ng abogado ko, they just put a docket on the old charge, I do not know.

“Ako naman, I’m ready to face the case. Pinag-aralan ko rin naman yun.”

Pinaninindigan naman ng legal counsel ni Senator Revilla na inosente ang kanyang kliyente sa pork-barrel scam.

Sabi ni Atty. Joel Bodegon, sa isang text message, "As he has stated from the beginning, he is ready to face whatever charge or charges are filed against him to clear his name.”
