Senator Panfilo Lacson is having mixed emotions about the Sandiganbayan’s acquittal of former Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. of plunder in relation to the pork barrel scam.

“As a former colleague and friend, I am happy for ex Sen Bong Revilla. As a strong advocate against the pork barrel, I feel weak and defeated,” Lacson tweeted.

The senator, however, bowed to the anti-graft court’s decision on the pork barrel case involving Revilla and two other accused.

“As a legislator, I respect the decision of the Sandiganbayan. At the end of the day, life goes on. Same is true with our battles,” he said.
