MANILA - After Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr. and his other co-accused in the pork barrel scam, it is the turn of his colleague, Senator Jinggoy Estrada, to be arraigned on Monday.

Like Revilla, Senator Estrada will also be arraigned at the Sandiganbayan with alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim Napoles.

The Philippine National Police (PNP) said it will deploy around 150 cops to the Sandiganbayan to secure the arraignment of Estrada and Napoles.

"Magpapakalat kami ng mga bomb sniffing dogs at mga plainclothes police para umikot sa lugar ngayon pa lamang," added Superintendent Eleazar Matta, station commander of the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) Batasan Hills.

Meanwhile, the group Scrap Pork Movement continues to express its dismay over the ''special treatment'' given to the detained senators.

Estrada and Revilla are currently being detained at the PNP Custodial Center in Camp Crame, instead of a regular jail.

The PNP, meanwhile, is also preparing for Senator Juan Ponce Enrile's possible hospital arrest once the court issues the warrant against him.

"Nakakabahala rin iyong sinasabing 'bilang respeto sa mga politiko'… Nasaan po rin ang respeto sa taumbayan?" said Atty. Michelle Estor of the Scrap Pork Movement.
