Sandiganbayan allows Bong Revilla to visit sick dad again
MANILA, Philippines – For the 2nd time this month, the anti-graft court Sandiganbayan allowed former Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr to visit his sick father.
The Sandiganbayan said Revilla, who is under trial for plunder, can leave his detention cell in Camp Crame to visit his father and namesake former Senator Ramon Revilla Sr at the St Luke’s Medical Center in Bonifacio City.
In a two-page resolution, the court allowed him a total of 18 hours to spend time with his father at the hospital. He can leave his detention center from 6 am to 12 pm on December 29 and from 2 pm to 8 pm on December 31 and January 1 next year.
Revilla is one of 3 former senators facing plunder complaints for allegedly diverting their discretionary funds into fake non-governmental organizations in exchange for kickbacks. (READ: Pork tales: A story on corruption) – Rappler.com
