Dec 7, 2018 @ 11:01

The Sandiganbayan on December 7 acquitted former senator Bong Revilla of plunder.

The Cavite politiko, in a majority vote by the anti-graft court’s special first division, was found not guilty of earning P224.5 million in kickbacks via the pork barrel scam.

But Revilla’s former aide Richard Cambe and businesswomen and pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim Napoles were found guilty of plunder.

The two were sentenced to life imprisonment.

The Office of the Ombudsman accused Revilla of funelling his pork barrel through bogus non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
