3

At least 43 bank deposits of Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla are among the assets that prosecutors want to be seized while the plunder complaint against the senator is being heard by the Sandiganbayan.

The anti-graft court has issued an order to seize Revilla’s assets, which include investments in various companies, cash deposits in different banks, real properties, motor vehicles and shares of stocks.

On Thursday, the anti-graft court Sandiganbayan granted the prosecution panel’s motion for the issuance of an order for preliminary seizure of the properties.

Attached to the motion was a preliminary list of properties to be seized based on Anti-Money Laundering Council’s (AMLC) bank inquiry, Revilla’s Statement of Assets, Liabilites and Networth (SALN) and the lifestyle check investigation approved by the Office of the Ombudsman.


Included in the list were 43 bank accounts in various banks, 28 real properties in Cavite, Tagaytay, Muntinlupa and Alabang; 15 vehicles and shares of stocks in various corporations.

The vehicles listed included two Toyota Innova wagons, a Mitsubishi Montero, Toyota HiAce Grandia, Nissan Frontier Navarra, Toyota Corolla, Mitsubishi Adventure GLX, Cadillac Escalade, Toyota Jeep, Mitsubishi L300, Fuso Jitney, BMW 730 Li, Hyundai Starex Van, Lexus X570 Wagon and Isuzu NHR.

Also to be seized in favor of the government are the lawmaker’s shares of stocks in RRJ Films Inc., RRJ Trading and Trucking Corp., Nature Concepts Development and Realty Corp., Manila Southwoods, Royal Tagaytay and Country Club, Fairways and. Blue Water, Subic Yacht Club, Palms Country Club, Sports Club – Riviera Golf and Sports, Villa Jose Jacinta Inc., Jomarog Inc., Alabang Country Club, Inc., San Miguel Corporation and GMA7 Network.

The prosecutors said the preliminary seizure of Revilla’s properties will ensure that these are not sold, transferred, destroyed or used for “further illegal activity.”

They pointed out that in his statement of assets, liabilities and networth in 2007, Revilla disclosed an annual gross salary of P376,500 and an annual gross family income ofP11,222,565.00.

“Yet, he had more than P21 million networth increases in 2011 and 2012, indicating receipt of monies from illicit sources,” they said.

Prosecutors said the senator closed a number of his bank accounts immediately before and after the PDAF scandal circulated the media.

  1. These will be finished Bong Revilla. No wonder his lead lawyer quit for fear he might not paid on time. I remember when Napoles asset were seized Lorna Kapunan jump out of the game. Lawyers knew when their client assets are frozen their fees will be contingent if they win but should they loose, the fees goes with it.

  2. I still laugh at how he tried to have the amlc stopped from showing his bank transfers & money movements. He said it was taking his right to secrecy. If that is the case then as a lawmaker he should know they need laws to catch people accused of stealing monies from the country & that if they are allowed their right to secrecy then no one would ever get caught.
    I would like to know the value of these houses he has all over the place, & the value of the shares he has in different companies & i would like to know how much he took out of those closed bank accounts just before he closed them after the investigation into the pork barrel scam came to light & if any of that money was then put into any of these 48 bank accounts he still has.
    Those are just a few of the questions he needs to be asked but it seems he doesnt want to answer questions on anything that he just wants the case closed. But there is evidence against him & the court should once & for all stop his shananigans & get his trial under way. Then when a verdict is reached on listening to all the evidence he will either be freed or jailed.
