Strike Revilla: Decision on Bong Revilla’s plunder case took to long

Dec 4, 2018 @ 19:32

Cavite 2nd District Representative Strike Revilla is counting the remaining days before former senator Bong Revilla will receive the Sandiganbayan’s decision on his plunder case.

The Sandiganbayan is set to release its decision on December 7.

The Cavite politiko said lamented how the case dragged on for so long.

“Sa halos apat at kalahating taon na ‘yan, wala pang 20 hearing days ang kinailangan para ilahad ng prosekusyon ang kanilang sinasabing ebidensiya, at wala pang kalahati niyan ang kinailangan para naman i-presenta ang depensa – 30 days o isang buwan lang kung tutuusin,” Revilla said.

“Hindi na dapat uma­bot pa ng ganyang katagal ang vista ng kaso. Kung hindi sadyang dinelay ang pagdinig, malamang ay hindi ito inabot ng dalawang taon. Maging ang mga mahistrado ng First Division ng Sandiganbayan ay napuna ang pagpapatagal ng pagdinig at pinagsabihan pa nga nito ng ilang beses ang prosekusyon,” he added.

For Revilla, justice delayed is justice denied.

“Sa bawat araw na nagtatagal sa piitan ang akusado na hindi naman dapat, ay tanda ng kawalan ng hustisya,” he said.
