Former Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla said on Thursday, February 23 that the delay in the trial of his plunder case was “unfair”.

He expressed disappointment after his plunder trial on the alleged misuse of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) or the “pork barrel” was rescheduled again by the Sandiganbayan on March 30.

“Imagine two years, nine months na akong nakakulong na walang kasalanan, papano pagdating ng oras na lumabas yung wala tayong kasalanan? Unfair naman para sakin di ba,” Revilla said in an ambush interview.

(Imagine. I’ve been detained for two years and nine months without any fault. What if the time comes when I’m proven to be innocent? That would be unfair to me).

Revilla has been detained at the Philippine National Police (PNP) Detention Center since 2014 for his alleged misuse of the PDAF.

The Sandiganbayan has cancelled Revillla’s trial last January 11.
