Lacson happy for Revilla but feels weak, defeated as anti-pork barrel advocate


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.
