Where’s the money?


    Several assets owned by Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. have already been placed on hold but the Sandiganbayan was only able to garnish a paltry amount, according to a sheriff’s report.

    Based on the nine-page report filed by Sheriff Honofre Tejada Jr. on April 16, 2015, only P291,205.62 in bank deposits were found. Revilla’s account at Asia United Bank (AUB) only had P24,606.94, while his account at the Land Bank of the Philippines Senate Extension Office contained P72,195.17. In Metrobank, an account under the name of Revilla or that of his wife Lani which contained P3,319.92 was also garnished, as well as another account under Revilla’s name which contained only P938.02.

    An account in Metrobank under the name of Revilla and Jesusa Victoria H. Bautista a.k.a Lani Mercado Revilla yielded P43,450.60.

    Tejada also served notices of garnishment to other banks not included in the prosecution’s list but only the Bank of Commerce replied, saying that Revilla had a deposit balance of P190,145.57 as of March 17, 2015.

    Also garnished were a 24-hectare agricultural land in Tanay, Rizal with market value of P14.4 million, a 945-sq.m. residential land in Ayala Alabang, Muntinlupa with market value of P3.74 million and 117,000 shares of stock in GMA Network.

    The Alabang Country Club meanwhile annotated the garnishment of Revilla’s shares of stock which is under the name of Ma. Theresa Menkem-Newnham, from whom he bought the share in 2011.

    The Sandiganbayan also ordered the seizure of 15 motor vehicles belonging to Revilla, who is facing plunder in connection with the pork barrel scam.
