Two Sandiganbayan justices believe Revilla is guilty of plunder
MANILA – Sandiganbayan 1st Division Chairperson Efren De la Cruz and Associate Justice Maria Theresa Dolores Gomez-Estoesta believe that former senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. is guilty of plunder and should have shared the fate of businesswoman Janet Lim Napoles and his Senate staff Richard Cambe.
Napoles and Cambe were found guilty of plunder in connection with the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) scam and were sentenced to reclusion perpetua.
In the dissenting opinions of Gomez-Estoesta and Dela Cruz, it was pointed out that Revilla should not have been acquitted as he conspired with Napoles and Cambe in an intricate scheme of diverting funds from his PDAF through the non-government organizations of Napoles.
