Lani Mercado ‘hoping for the best’ in upcoming ruling on husband’s plunder case

Bacoor City Mayor Lani Mercado-Revilla is “hoping for the best” that the court would release a favorable ruling for her husband former Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla.


Mercado-Revilla said on Monday that the Sandiganbayan 1st Division is set to release its decision on the plunder case of her husband on Friday.

Revilla is currently detained at the Philippine National Police custodial center over the pork barrel scam.


“Sa darating pong Biyernes, malalaman na po namin ang hatol ng kanyang kaso sa Sandiganbayan 1st Division,” she said during the alliance agreement between Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte’s Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) and Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Estrada’s Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP).

“Ito na ata ang pinakamatagal naming paghihintay,” she added.

Bong Revilla is seeking a Senate comeback in the upcoming May 2019 midterm elections. He has been detained for four years and eight months.

Revilla was detained together with Jinggoy Estrada and Juan Ponce Enrile over the same issue. Both Estrada and Enrile are also seeking a Senate seat.

According to Lani, their family does not need material things as Christmas gifts this year; instead, they would rather ask for prayers for the favorable ruling of the court.

“Hindi namin kailangan talaga ang mga regalong materyal sa mga panahon na ito; ang kailangan po talaga namin ay ang inyong panalangin at pagmamahal,” Lani said.


“Sana sa darating na Biyernes ay maging paborable kay Senator Bong Revilla ang hatol ng Sandigan sa kanya,” she added.

“Hoping for the best this coming Friday, patuloy pong panalangin para kay Senator Bong Revilla.” /je
