MANILA - Detained Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr. visited his sick father, former senator Ramon Revilla Sr, at St. Luke's Medical Center in Taguig Tuesday.

A photo released by Revilla's office showed the senator holding his father's hand.

The Sandiganbayan 1st Division earlier granted the detained senator's petition for a five-hour furlough so he could visit his father. Revilla is detained at the Philippine National Police (PNP) Custodial Center.

The anti-graft court granted Revilla's request provided that he will not allow media interviews and use a cellphone.

Revilla's wife, Cavite Rep. Lani Mercado, earlier said the older Revilla was rushed to St. Luke's Medical Center in Global City last Saturday.

Atty. Raymond Fortun said the elder Revilla has pneumonia.
