Blame it on his music video? Senator Bong Revilla surrenders at Sandiganbayan
We actually blame it on one of his movies.
Believe it or not, when news broke out this morning, Friday, June 20, that the Sandiganbayan’s First Division had already signed the arrest warrant for Senator Bong Revilla, the first things we thought about was his music video and his 2007 flick, Resiklo.
Maybe it’s because we’ve long wanted to nab Revilla for crimes against pop culture.
Anyway, we all know that Revilla is now under fire for his alleged involvement in the pork barrel scam. He’s being accused of pocketing P224 million. Time and again, he has dismissed the pork scam-related allegations hurled against him. But, apparently, the Sandiganbayan thinks otherwise.
The signing of Revilla’s arrest warrant seems to be anticlimactic, as he has been ready to surrender since Thursday, June 19.
In fact, when news broke out that the Sandiganbayan had signed his arrest warrant, Revilla and his group had already left his house in Cavite and were on their way to the Sandiganbayan in Quezon City for his surrender. He had stated that he wasn’t going to wait for his arrest warrant to be served. Sometime past 10 a.m., Revilla finally arrived at the Sandiganbayan.
After his Sandiganbayan stop, Revilla is expected to be taken to Camp Crame, where he’ll be detained in a room that’s way better than any ordinary jail cell.
We don’t know about you, but something about this feels...recycled.
