Department of Justice (DOJ) Cancelled the passports of Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada and Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr.posted by: Dennis Aguilar
Department of Justice (DOJ) just recently requested Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to cancel the passports of the 3 senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada and Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr who were all charged with plunder at the Ombudsman.
Justice Secretary Leila de Lima asked DFA for it just after Jessica “Gigi” Reyes (Enrile’s former chief of staff) who recently had her name dragged into 10 billion pork barrel scam left our country.
De Lima said that these politicians that are involved in corruptions who steals money from the govertment are no different from the terrorists, she said:
“Politicians and their cohorts who pluck the food away from a hungry child’s mouth are no different from the terrorists who sow physical insecurity among the populace, when they cause economic insecurity among the people by stealing livelihood resources and money intended for calamity.”
On the other hand, Senator Ramon Bong Revilla after his passport’s cancellation said:
“these moves only show the lack of justice in the country”
“I believe that impartial examination of evidence will show that my integrity will be kept intact–that I will be vindicated by the truth that I didn’t steal anything from the country’s coffers. However, with these moves shown by the administration, haven’t I committed the mistake of believing that justice can still be attained?”
