    Plunder raps ordered vs 3 Phl senators

     
    THE Office of the Ombudsman on Tuesday ordered the filing of plunder charges against Philippine Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Ramon "Bong" Revilla, Jr. and Jose "Jinggoy" Estrada in connection with the P10-billuion “pork barrel” scam.
    Scam queen Janet Lim Napoles and several others were also included in the plunder raps for the alleged misuse of the senators’ Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF).
    Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales approved the filing before the graft court of the plunder complaint, and graft charges against the three senators and the other respondents.
    In a press conference, Assistant Ombudsman Asyrman Rafanan said the Ombudsman has recommended the filing of cases of plunder and violations of Republic Act No. 3019, or the "Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act" against the respondents before the graft court.
    Plunder is a "non-bailable" offense.
    The Ombudsman found probable cause on the case filed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) on Sept. 16, 2013 in the case of plunder against the three senators, five former congressmen and businesswoman in connection with the alleged P10-billion pork barrel scam.
    Napoles is the alleged "brains" behind the P10-billion pork barrel and the P900-million Malampaya fund scams.
    Among the respondents in the case are Enrile for allegedly amassing Php 172.8 million, Estrada with P183.79 million, Revilla with P224.5 million, former congresswoman and now Masbate Gov. Rizalina Seachon-Lanete with P08.4 million, former APEC partylist Rep. Edgar Valdez with P56.09 million and Napoles.
