Gatchalian confident Jinggoy will spend more quality time with fambam
Former Sen. Jinggoy Estrada can now be an “active participant” in important family events now that he is free, though temporarily.
Sen. Win Gatchalian made the remark in reaction to Estrada’s posting of P1 million bail for his provisional freedom.
“After 3 years in detention, this is a good opportunity for him to spend quality time with his family and loved ones,” he said.
Gatchalian said Estrada “missed numerous important events of their family.”
He added, “It’s time to catch up and appreciate those people who did not forget him while he was away.”
Estrada is facing plunder for his alleged involvement in the P10 billion pork barrel fund scam.
The Sandiganbayan on Thursday granted Estrada’s petition to post bail on the ground that the evidence against him is weak.
