Duterte on visiting Bong, Jinggoy in Crame: Parang fiesta
President Rodrigo Duterte revealed that he paid a visit to former Senators Bong Revilla and Jinggoy Estrada in their detention cells in Camp Crame and there was one thing that he could not forget from his stopover: the food, lots of it.
“Nagpunta man ako sa Crame noon. Nagkain kami sabay ni Jinggoy Estrada pati ni Revilla. Okay ang pagkain nila doon parang — para talagang fiesta. Pinapadalan siya ng nanay niya eh naawa man,” said Duterte.
Duterte has publicly endorsed the grant of bail to Revilla who, together with Estrada, have been arrested for diverting millions of their pork barrel funds to their pockets through the pork barrel scam of Janet Lim Napoles.
His fraternity brother, Solicitor General Jose Calida, has recently moved to reverse the conviction Napoles in her illegal detention case involving star witness Benhur Luy. Calida’s move could have an impact on the prosecution of pork barrel cases, including that of Revilla and Estrada.
