Court finds Bong Revilla Jr. NOT GUILTY re: pork barrel scam

The Sandiganbayan acquitted former Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr. of plunder on Friday in his Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) or pork barrel scam case. Two of his co-accused, Janet Lim Napoles and Richard Cambe, were found guilty of plunder by the anti-graft court. Revilla, along with former Senators Juan Ponce Enrile and Jinggoy Estrada, were accused of receiving kickbacks from alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim Napoles in exchange for funneling part of their discretionary funds to bogus non-government organizations.
