Bong Revilla’s wish for Christmas furlough granted


By Boy Villasanta


Even if only for a few moments, detained Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. is one of the happiest people now. That’s because his prayer for a Christmas furlough was granted by the Sandiganbayan First Division and he is now preparing to leave and be reunited with the clan in Cavite.


Bong’s request was approved by the court to be with the company of his loved ones especially with his dad, actor Ramon Revilla, Sr. who is sick.


At 11 a.m. tomorrow, Sunday, December 24, 2017, Revilla, Jr. will temporarily leave his detention cell at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center at Camp Crame to spend Christmas Eve with his wife Lani Mercado and their children.


But he has to be back to the Center at 8 p.m. on Monday, December 25, 2017, Christmas day.


He will again leave his detention cell on December 31, 2017 at 11 a.m. to celebrate New Year’s Eve and the New Year’s Day with his Revilla and Bautista families. He has to return to Camp Crame at 8 p.m. on January 1, 2018.


According to one of his aides, Mario Maderal, when there are official visitations to the actor in his jail, guests are allowed to be with Bong during his furloughs.



But authorities advised that there won’t be interviews with Revilla especially from media people. Bong is detained for plunder cases.
