Bong Revilla acquitted in plunder case

Former Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr. hugs a member of his panel after the Sandiganbayan on Friday cleared him of plunder in connection with the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) or pork barrel scam case. Public prosecutors had accused the actor-turned-politician of embezzling P224 million in discretionary funds while he was still senator.
