Revilla allowed to secure TRO from SC vs plunder trial

  The Sandiganbayan has given former Sen. Bong Revilla the chance to secure a temporary restraining order (TRO) from the Supreme Court to stop the trial of his P224.5-million plunder case---but only for three weeks.   The defense was supposed to begin presenting its evidence to counter the Ombudsman's allegations on Thursday, but the court's First Division deferred it to Feb. 15, "in the interest of justice."   "Accused Revilla should present his evidence on Feb. 15, 2018, in the event that no (TRO) is issued by the Supreme Court," read the order signed by Associate Justices Efren N. de la Cruz, Edgardo M.

Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr. to be allowed to challenge the sufficiency of the prosecution's evidence and thereby cut short his trial for plunder.   In a three-page resolution on Thursday, the antigraft court's First Division affirmed the Dec. 7 denial of motions by Revilla and his coaccused for leave to file a demurrer.   The court reiterated that the Ombudsman's evidence was strong enough and the defense would have to rebut it by presenting its own evidence.   A demurrer is a motion filed by the accused challenging the sufficiency of the prosecution's evidence to lead to a co...Keep on reading: Court denies with finality Revilla bid to stop trial.....»»

The Philippine Sports Commission on Wednesday announced that Clarkson will be front and center when the Philippine delegation marches during the opening ceremony on Saturday atGelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta, Indonesia. Clarkson, the Cleveland Cavaliers guard, was initially disallowed by the NBA to participate in the Asiad. The league, however, made a U-turn and gave Clarkson the thumbs up following an appeal made by Philippine sports officials.

According to Chef de Mission Richard Gomez, the NBA has given Clarkson to go signal to play for the national team, which makes its Asiad debut against Kazakhstan on Thursday, August 16.

NCAA: Jielo Razon rescues Perps from upset-conscious JRU

University of Perpetual Help has been the most surprising squad in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament – and much of it is because of its backcourt. Jielo Razon and Edgar Charcos yet again showed their worth on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, getting together in the endgame to shoot the Altas over Jose Rizal University, 78-72. Razon dropped back-to-back bombs set up by Charcos that proved to be the game-winning baskets in their second consecutive victory and fourth overall in six games. “Wala pa kaming easy win, but a win is a win,” head coach Frankie Lim said post-game. Indeed, the rookie guard showed no fear in taking and making two triples inside the last two minutes. Still, it was AJ Coronel who hit his own trey that tied the tally again for Perps after they were at the receiving end of a rally from their opponents. Down by double-digits early in the final frame, Jed Mendoza carried the Heavy Bombers back into the game. In fact, he scored the first seven points in the 9-0 run that snatched away the advantage in favor of his squad, 72-69. Off a timeout, though, Coronel rose and launched a three that found the bottom of the net and knotted the score at 72-all. From there, the Perpetual defense stood strong and allowed no more makes just as Razon and Charcos got together. Razon finished with 18 points, six rebounds, and five assists while Charcos ended with 25 markers, nine boards, and five dimes for the Altas who now have a share of third place. On the other hand, JRU remained winless in seven games despite the best efforts of Mendoza who wound up with 21 points. BOX SCORES PERPETUAL 78 – Charcos 25, Razon 18, Coronel 16, Eze 7, Aurin 5, Peralta 5, Mangalino 2, Pasia 0, Cuevas 0, Sese 0, Tamayo 0 JRU 72 – Mendoza 21, Bordon 10, Silvarez 9, Estrella 8, Padua 6, Mallari 5, Dela Virgen 5, Esguerra 4, Santos 2, Aguilar 0, Miranda 0 QUARTER SCORES: 18-13, 34-30, 55-46, 78-72 —— Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
