    Phl issues HDOs vs 3 accused senators

     
    PRESIDENTIAL Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said on Tuesday it is within the power of the court to issue hold departure orders (HDOs) against the respondents in the pork barrel scam.
    Coloma said it is also upon the discretion of the Sandiganbayan (graft court) to issue warrants of arrest against the senators accused in the priority development assistance fund (PDAF) misuse.
    According to Coloma, it is also up to the decision of the Sandiganbayan whether to grant the requests of some of the accused, such as Senator Jinggoy Estrada, that instead of detaining them in the detention cell built purposely in Camp Crame, Quezon City, it should just be a house arrest.
    Likewise, Coloma said that they will wait for the decision of the House of Representatives on the House Bill creating a separate detention cell for the high-profile detainees while their case is pending because Congress is a separate and co-equal branch of government.
