Dapat pogi pa rin! Bong Revilla wants tooth implant
Apparently, “pork barrel” scam respondent and former Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. wants to remain good-looking by keeping his pearly whites healthy.
The detained ex-movie actor has submitted a motion before the Sandiganbayan First Division asking permission to be let out of detention so he can get a dental implant. This, after his dentist took out his aching tooth.
In his motion, Revilla sought furlough on July 13, 16, and 23 this 2016 to undergo first stage implant surgery, post operation check-up, and suture removal and styplate denture reline, respectively.
“From the foregoing, Senator Revilla respectfully beseeches this Honorable Court that he be allowed to undergo the recommended dental procedures stated above at the GAOC (Gan Advanced Osseointegration Center)…Makati City on 13, 16, 23 July 2016, all at 2:00 p.m.,” read his motion.
Revilla, who is charged with plunder and 16 counts of graft, has been detained since June 2014 at the Philippine National Police (PNP) Custodial Center in Camp Crame.
He is accused of pocketing P242 million in kickbacks by diverting his Priority Development Assistance Funds (PDAF) or pork to businesswoman Janet Lim Napoles, who controlled various fake non-government organizations (NGOs) .
