Bong Revilla granted permission to visit dad Ramon Revilla Sr.
The three generations of Revillas are reunited once more as former Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. was again granted permission by the Sandiganbayan to visit his ailing father, former Sen. Ramon Revilla Sr.
The news was shared by Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla via an Instagram post on Saturday, which was accompanied by a photo of him all smiles with his father and grandfather.
The senator has been detained while facing a trial for a non-bailable multi-million plunder case.
The “Ang Agimat” starrer has been accused of pocketing P224 million worth of kickbacks from his Priority Development Assistance Fund, or what is now known as the PDAF or pork barrel scam.
Sen. Bong has been allowed to leave detention once in a while by the Sandiganbayan for various occasions in the past. In February of 2017, he got permission to visit his father at the hospital following the Revilla patriarch’s request to have his son on his bedside prior his heart surgery.
In 2015, he also got out temporarily to visit his son Jolo after the younger Revilla sustained a gunshot wound in the chest. /jpv
