Despite his plunder acquittal, former Sen. Ramong “Bong” Revilla isn’t totally clear yet as he still faces multiple graft charges at the Sandiganbayan.

Revilla on Friday posted a bail bond amounting to P480,000 for his pending graft cases right after his promulgation at the special five-man division which acquitted him for plunder.

The former Senator still faces 16 counts of violation of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act for at the Sandiganbayan First Division for allegedly earning more than P224-million worth of kickbacks after channeling his Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) allocations to the bogus non-government organizations staged by businesswoman Janet Lim Napoles, the person behind the Pork Barrel scam.

Napoles and Revilla’s former chief-of-staff, Richard Cambe were convicted during Friday’s promulgation and was sentence to suffer the penalty of 40-years imprisonment.
