Additional funds were garnished from an account of Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., according to the latest Sheriff’s Report.
The funds, however, were still meager compared to the amount that prosecutors want secured pending the P224-million plunder case against Revilla in connection with the pork barrel scam.
The report, submitted to the Sandiganbayan’s First Division on July 8, stated that “Atty. Rosemarie M. Osoteo, Vice President, Land Bank of the Philippines, informed the undersigned that accused Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. has additional funds with LandBank Senate Extension Office amounting to P36.10 and that the Garnishment had already been effected on subject account amounting to P72,231.27 as of April 22, 2015.”
Earlier, garnishment was effected on an account under Revilla’s name maintained at the Land Bank of the Philippines Senate Extension Office amounting to P72,195.17.
Based on a nine-page Sheriff’s Report filed on April 16, bank deposits totaling P291,205.62 maintained by Revilla in several banks were on hold, including the P72,195.17.
The July report was signed by Acting Chief Judicial Staff Officer Albert Dela Cruz and Sheriff IV/First Division Honofre Tejada Jr.
They reported that they received copies of the Declaration of Real Property Value from Tagaytay City Assesso Gregorio Monreal on two pieces of property, which were earlier seized, and improvements thereon.
Both townhouses are 125 sq.m. in area with the same market value of P750,000. Improvements thereon have the same market value of P904,990.
Last February, sheriffs asked the Land Transportation Office (LTO) for additional information on 15 vehicles of Revilla that prosecutors included in their list of assets to be seized.
They said in their report that the LTO La Loma District Office provided them certified photocopies of the Certificate of Registration and Official Receipt of a Toyota Corolla but it was registered under the name of Inah Felicia Bautista.
Pieces of property that are not under a defendant’s name may not be seized or placed on hold.
Revilla was charged last year and has been detained at the Philippine National Police (PNP) Custodial Center in Camp Crame in Quezon City.
A Writ of Preliminary Attachment is an order that in effect keeps money from being withdrawn or assets from being transferred.
