Bong acquittal ‘best Christmas gift’

0 34

For the family of former senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., his acquittal is the “best Christmas gift.”

“Our family is thankful that Senator Bong will finally be free, and this is our best Christmas gift.  We thank our God, the people of Cavite, and our supporters for this wonderful present,” said Cavite 2nd District Rep. Strike Revilla, Bong’s brother.

He said it is a great relief for the family to welcome home Revilla who was “incarcerated and denied justice for years.”

On Friday, the Sandiganbayan’s First Division acquitted Revilla from plunder charges in connection with the Priority Development Assistance Fund or “pork barrel” scam.

“We thank them for being fair,” Strike said.

Meanwhile, the Lakas-Christian Muslims Democrats (CMD) party said the decision will give a big boost to Revilla’s senatorial bid.

Revilla is the chairman of the party. Glee Jalea
