The Sandiganbayan has cleared Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. of plunder in the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) or pork barrel scam case during the promulgation on Friday, December 7.
In a report by Inquirer, the actor turned politician was found not guilty of misusing the public funds based on the decision of the Sandiganbayan First Division.
Meanwhile, Revilla’s two co-accused, Janet Lim Napoles and Richard Cambe were found guilty of plunder.
Revilla has spent four years at the Philippine National Police (PNP) Custodial Center in Camp Crame after being accused of allocating P224 million from his ‘pork barrel’ to bogus organizations allegedly created by Napoles.
Also accused alongside Revilla were former Senators Juan Ponce Enrile and Jinggoy Estrada who were allowed by the Sandiganbayan to post bail.
