Even if he is prepared to face his arrest, he stated that he doesn’t want to be arrested at his home.
Senator Jinggoy Estrada has already accepted that he could be arrested and detained anytime following the charges of plunder in relation with the pork barrel scam.
Since he had the same experience back in 2001 when he and former President Joseph Estrada were arrested with the same charges, the younger Estrada has taken steps to make sure that there will be a peaceful surrender to authorities.
"I have already spoken with a ranking policeman, a general in Camp Crame," he said. "Ang sabi ko, ‘you don’t need to arrest me, you don’t need to go to my house kasi baka ma-trauma iyung mga anak ko eh, especially iyung maliit na anak ko. Just tell me where to go and I am willing to go there."
Aside from that, Estrada already planned his routine while in detention at the Camp Crame custodial center.
"Siguro, doon sa loob na lang ako mag-eensayo to stay physically fit," he said. "Mananatili akong sexy lagi."
Knowing that it will be small and bare, Estrada said he is fine about the cell prepared for him together with the other accused in the pork barrel scam.
In spite of the weight of the charges and the possibility of going to jail without bail, Estrada finds reason to jest about his situation.
However he is still pained toward his fellow senators who approved the appeal for his prosecution.
With them is his brother, Senator JV Ejercito, the only minority member who signed the Blue Ribbon Committee report.
"Sana inisip na lang niya kung ano ang mararamdaman ng tatay namin sa pagpirma niya ng committee report," he said.
Estrada said he no longer talks to his brother.
Meanwhile, he is positive that he will be acquitted of the charges in the end.
