MANILA, Philippines – A week after the Department of Justice requested the cancellation of the passports of 37 people suspected to be involved in the P10-billion pork barrel scam, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) on Sunday it has served the notice to only 15. Those who have been served notice included Senators Juan Ponce-Enrile, Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada, and Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr.
DFA spokesman Raul Hernandez said the DFA is still looking for the addresses of 22 people on DOJ’s request list for passport cancellation, as many of them hae residences outside Metro Manila.
“Sinabi ng ating legal team, ang iba wala sa Maynila at nasa probinsiya, kaya aalamin nila kung saan ang kanilang address sa probinsiya upang maipadala ang letters ng DFA (Our legal team said some are not in Metro Manila and are in the provinces, that’s why they’re finding out their addresses in the provinces so that the DFA may be able to send them the letters),” he said.
