Sandiganbayan allows Bong Revilla to visit dad in hospital
Detained former Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. has been allowed to visit his ailing father, Ramon Revilla Sr., at the hospital.
The Sandiganbayan 1st Division has issued a resolution granting the motion of Bong to be with his father from 2 to 7 p.m. this Saturday (Nov. 17) at St. Luke’s Medical City in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
Revilla had informed the anti-graft court in his motion that his father is being treated for Aspiration Pneumonia and has been confined at the hospital.
The former senator is currently detained at the Custodial Center of the Philippine National Police (PNP) headquarters in Camp Crame, Quezon City.
He has been charged with plunder and 16 counts of graft in connection to the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) scam.
Under the charges, Revilla is accused of having amassed P242 million in kickbacks from his co-accused, pork barrel scam brains Janet Lim Napoles, in exchange for choosing her non-government organizations to implement ghost projects funded by his PDAF.
The court is set to promulgate its decision in the plunder case this Dec. 7.
