Cavite 2nd District Representative Strike Revilla, in his Abante column, lamented how it took four years before “the truth came out” regarding the pork barrel scam case of former Senator Bong Revilla.

The Cavite politiko cited the testimony of two whistleblowers who revealed before the Sandiganbayan that former Special Prosecutor Jeofferson Toribio forced them to testify against the former senator.

“Imbes na pa­kinggan ang katotohanan, dagdag nila, sinabihan sila umano na tumigil at suportahan na lang kung anuman ang sasabihin ni Benhur Luy – na huwag na nilang guluhin ang kuwento dahil buo na raw ito at hihina ang kaso,” the Cavite lawmaker said.

“Lumabas din sa mga pagtatanong na wala silang nagawa kundi sumunod dahil baka alisin sila sa witness protection ng nakaraang gobyerno,” he added.

Revilla also said the two whistleblowers explained that the detained senator did not receive any kickbacks under the pork barrel scam.

“Nakatutuwa at nakakagalit din ang mga ti­nuran ng dalawang whistleblower. Kinailangan pang u­mabot ng apat na taon bago tuluyang masilayan ang liwanag at katotohanang nabaon sa kadiliman,” he said.
