Guilty or not? Sandiganbayan set to rule on Bong Revilla’s plunder case
The Sandiganbayan 1st Division is set to release its decision over the plunder case against former Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. this December.
The anti-graft court has issued a supplemental order which “sets the promulgation of the decision of this case on December 7, 2018, at 8:30 in the morning.”
The court set the date after having concluded the trial of the plunder the case last August.
Aside from plunder, Revilla has been charged with 16 counts of graft and one count of plunder 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 former senator is currently detained at the Custodial Center of the Philippine National Police (PNP) headquarters in Camp Crame, Quezon City.
