Sen. Jinggoy and Sen. Bong Revilla will not resign


Firm on their innocence regarding the pork barrel scam, Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinggoy Estrada and Ramon Revilla Jr. yesterday refused to give in on calls spreading online for them to resign.

The senators even challenged  the Department of Justice (DOJ) to reveal in public a list made  by supposed  scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles which has the names of other lawmakers and officials involved in the scam.

“Let us wait and see if we will be found guilty… I leave my fate to God… I will accept the judgment,” Revilla said condemning the resignation call as trial by publicity.

He added that the controversy has left him tired but with hope that the truth would come out  about accusations that he had misuse his Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) conniving  with Napoles.

“How did they know that we are guilty?” Enrile said, referring to those calling for the

Senate President Franklin Drilon expressed his sympathy  for the three senators, saying “resignation is a matter of personal choice.”

From the minority bloc, Sen. Vicente Sotto  called the resignation calls “unfair.”

    Animals are more human than Jingoy, Bong and Johny…..

    The rhinos and hipos’ stinks and thickness of their skins paled in comparison with Jingoy Estrada, Bong Revilla and Juan Ponce Enrile. They are no humans anymore when even the slightest of shame is no longer manifested on their faces. Animals are more human as the unwanted rhinos, hipos, lions even hyaenas leave their pacts when they are no longer welcome as members of their kinds. That’s the law of the jungle.
