It’s their day in court after a prolonged corruption scandal that has enraged many Filipinos. Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr, alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim Napoles, and their co-accused were arraigned June 26 at the Sandiganbayan anti-graft court for the plunder and graft charges filed against them. Revilla, who left his detention facility in Camp Crame past 7 am on Thursday, was not handcuffed and was not in detainee uniform since there was “no threat of flight,” police said. The senator was in formal attire – he wore a polo barong. In contrast to Revilla, Napoles appeared before the court wearing a hoodie and sunglasses. Revilla is one of two Philippine senators detained on corruption charges. On Monday, June 30, it will be the turn of jailed Senator Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada to be arraigned in court.
