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.
