Poor Panday: Senator Bong Revilla only has a little over P291,000 in his bank accounts
(SPOT.ph) Before we delve into the details, let's jog our memories and take a trip back in time to October 2014. Back then, Senator Bong Revilla was as indignant as ever about the charges filed against him. He was particularly miffed about the fact that people were questioning the source of his wealth. The archive of Sun Star has an article quoting him saying:
Alam ng sambayanan sino ba si Bong Revilla. Ano pinaghirapan natin sa mulat sapul. Mahigit isang daang pelikula na po ang lahat ng pelikula nagawa ko, siguro lahat kumikita. Wala pa akong flop na pelikula kahit isa. Lahat nang binabanggit nila sa korte lahat ligal na pera pinagkitaan ko.
Flashforward to April 21, 2015. The Philippine Star reports that the Sandiganbayan has effectively frozen his bank accounts and we find out that, combined, his accounts contain only P291,205.62. Curiously, he has one account that only contains a little over a thousand pesos...that's below maintaining balance, right?
Panday has fallen on hard times. Aww.
