MANILA, Philippines – Senator Jose “Jinggoy”  Estrada  said he has no  plan to  leave the country  when Congress goes on break next week as the filing  of cases against him in connection with the “pork barrel” scam was widely seen as imminent.

Congress will go on break on June 11 and will resume next month.

Asked if he would leave the country during the break, the senator categorically said no.

“Mino-monitor naman ako ni Leila, di ba? Tinanong ko kung saan ako nagpunta last week, alam nya.  E mukhang hinahabol nya ako,” he said followed by a hearty laugh.

(Leila is monitoring me anyway, right? I asked her where I went last week, she knew it. It seems she’s going after me.)

Estrada was referring to Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, whom he asked during her confirmation hearing at the Senate Wednesday if she has been monitoring his movements.

“May asim pa ako…Hirap maging sexy, hinahabol e…” he added.

The code name “Sexy” was allegedly being used by a lawmaker who had dealings with Napoles.

Asked again about reports of the impending filing of cases against him at the Sandiganbayan,  the senator said: “E mukha naman talagang inevitable na yun e (It seems that’s inevitable).”

Estrada, along with Senators Juan Ponce-Enrile and Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr and several other personalities, are facing plunder and anti-graft charges in connection with the “pork” scam.
