MANILA, Philippines – The family of Senator Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada  went to the Senate on Wednesday  for his much anticipated speech reportedly on “pork barrel”  funds.

Estrada’s wife and children are present. Members of his staff are wearing orange t-shirts and blouses with stickers bearing the words “We love Jinggoy.”

Estrada started to deliver his 22-page long speech a few minutes ahead of expected time. The session was expected to open at 3:30 pm but Estrada took the floor a little past 3 pm.

The senator is among those charged with plunder at the Office of the Ombudsman in connection with the P10-billion “pork barrel” scam allegedly masterminded by Janet Lim-Napoles.
