Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. said on Monday he will be spending a “cold Christmas” in his detention quarters in Camp Crame.

Revilla made the comment in an interview after the hearing at the Sandiganbayan where he is appealing his petition for bail.

He is facing a P224-million plunder case before the First Division and is detained at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center in Crame.

The court had turned down his bail plea. The senator is appealing the ruling.


“Of course, it’s [the denial of bail]sad. I still believe that there is justice in our country. In God’s time,” Revilla said.

The Sandiganbayan gave the prosecution was given 20 days to reply to Revilla’s motion for reconsideration.

  1. “Al iz well”- sabi nga sa 3 idiots, no matter what happens just leave it to Him and everything will be fine.

  2. Please just resume it in 2015, kailangan din natin ng break sa mg ganitong issue, magpahingahin nyo muna ito dahil lalabas at lalabas din naman ang katotohanan.

  3. “He is facing a P224-million plunder case”- what? napalaki naman ng paratang na ito! ano ba ang basis ng probable cause na yan at hanggang ngayon nakakulong pa sya?

  4. Hindi pa nga napapatunayan kuda na ng kuda ang taong bayan na magnanakaw na sya, grabe naman! well that’s a sinful nature of man pero sana hangga’t maaari wag natin itong ipamuhay.

  5. Malungkot talagang magpasko sa kulungan at malayo sa pamilya sa ganitong okasyon, pero kahit ganun pa man tuloy lang ang buhay magbubunga din ang iyong paghihirap.

  6. HIndi na baleng akusahan ka ng kung anu-ano ang mahalaga meron kang chance na ipaglaban ang nararapat.

    Maging pantay sana ang pagtingin natin sa kasong ito na di sa lahat ng pagkakataon na ang taong inaakusahan ay siya na ang may sala.Kaya nga may tamang proseso tayong sinusunod upang malaman ng katotohanan.

  8. “Of course, it’s sad. I still believe that there is justice in our country. In God’s time,” Revilla said.”- yeah right, if your really innocent fight for it!

  9. Millions of poor Filipinos will be hungry this Christmas, because crooks steal an estimated 25 percent of our national budget. 25% of a budget of two trillion pesos will be P500 billion – enough to provide free health care to all Filipinos, or provide hundreds of thousands of low-cost housings, or feed millions of malnourished Filipinos for a year.

    Plunderers should be meted the death penalty to reduce the nauseating amount of corruption in our government.
