Revilla can now be released from detainment after the Sandiganbayan acquitted him of plunder over his alleged involvement in the P10 billion pork barrel scam.
After his acquittal, Revilla also posted bail for his 16 other graft cases related to the scam.
Revilla’s cases stemmed from his alleged allocation of P224 million from his Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) to bogus non-government organizations of Janet Lim-Napoles, the alleged pork barrel scam mastermind.
He has been detained at the PNP Custodial Center for over four years. /muf
