MANILA, Philippines – Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. disclosed on Tuesday that unidentified men on board two cars have been casing his house and tailing him.

He said a vehicle of one of his men had also been stolen.

“Hindi ko alam kung ano na itong nangyayaring ito . Basta itong ginagawa  nila, bahala na ang Diyos sa kanila,” Revilla said.

(I don’t know anymore what’s happening. Whatever it is they’re doing, I’ll just leave it up to God.)

Revilla’s disclosure came amid reports that his detention as well as of those other lawmakers  implicated in the “pork barrel” scam were already being readied at Camp Crame in Quezon City.

He branded the reports as “trial by publicity” and “torture.

Revilla noted that the court has not yet ordered their arrest but authorities were already reportedly preparing their detention cells.

“…Basta masasabi ko lang handa na ako because God is with me at alam kong maraming nagdadasal para sa akin at sa aking pamilya,” he said.

(All I can say is that  I’m ready because God is with me and I know  that many people are praying for me and my family)

Revilla said he had also prepared his family for his possible arrest and detention that he even told them not to shed their tears.
