After hearing no objection from the prosecution, the anti-graft division cited “humanitarian considerations” in allowing Revilla to have a dental check-up, oral prophylaxis, and implant cleaning.

PBA: Finally, Columbian has a point guard to drive the Dyip

Columbian’s first overall pick in the 2018 PBA Draft was a no-brainer – of course, they were going with former NCAA MVP and do-it-all swingman CJ Perez. However, the Dyip’s second selection in the first round took just about everybody by surprise as they went with pint-sized playmaker JP Calvo. This, with the likes of more heralded Colegio de San Juan de Letran teammate Bong Quinto still on the board. For head coach Johnedel Cardel, though, Calvo’s drafting was a no-brainer as well. “Alam ko kung anong kulang sa team. I have all the scorers so what I need is the one pure point guard who can carry the team,” he said. He then continued, “Kelangan ko yung nag-iisip kung paano ma-run yung team. That’s Calvo.” And in his first game for Columbian, tuneup as it was, the former court general of the Knights wasted no time proving his worth. He scored six points all while spearheading the attack that also allowed teammates such as Perez to shine as they routed Northport, 97-83, at The Hardcourt on Monday. “Calvo nga is a pure point guard so I give all the confidence to him. Sabi ko nga sa kanya, point guard is the problem of the team before,” coach Johnedel said. He then continued, “Walang problema if you’re small, basta you have a big heart.” Indeed, there’s reason for the Dyip to hope that Calvo is the pure point guard they have been missing ever since the days of LA Revilla and Nico Elorde. With the 11th overall pick in the fold, natural off-guards Rashawn Mccarthy and Jerramy King, and even Perez, will no longer be forced to play the point. Even better, Calvo is nothing but ready and raring to take his place as Columbian’s starting point guard. “Ako naman, ready ako lagi. Gagawin ko lang talaga yung best ko para makatulong sa team,” he said. —— Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Pork barrel scam mastermind points to Revilla acquittal in her appeal

The mastermind of one of the country's biggest cases of corruption and an accomplice sought to turn the spotlight on the acquittal of former Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr. to reverse their conviction by the antigraft court Sandiganbayan. Janet Lim-Napoles, convicted of masterminding the outright theft of public funds through Revilla's pork barrel, and Richard Cambe, Revilla's former chief of staff who was convicted of conniving with Napoles, beat the deadline for appeals on Friday. But the Ombudsman allowed the deadline to lapse without appealing Revilla's acquittal. Napoles filed a motion for reconsideration at the Sandiganbayan while Cambe informed the court he was challenging ...Keep on reading: Pork barrel scam mastermind points to Revilla acquittal in her appeal.....»»

Napoles wants transfer to women’s jail deferred pending appeal

Convicted pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles has asked the Sandiganbayan not to order her immediate transfer to the Correctional Institution for Women, arguing that she should be allowed to appeal her plunder case first. In a three-page motion for reconsideration, Napoles said the Dec. 7 verdict --- which led to the acquittal of Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr., the former senator whose pork barrel funds she was found guilty of pocketing --- was "not yet final." Hours after she was sentenced, the court issued a separate order for the issuance of a commitment order for Napoles to begin serving her maximum sentence of 40 years in the Mandaluyong City penitentiary. Napoles' lawy...Keep on reading: Napoles wants transfer to women’s jail deferred pending appeal.....»»

Sandiganbayan orders release of Revilla from detention

MANILA, Philippines --- The Sandiganbayan First Division ordered the release of former Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr. from detention, as it approved his posting of bail hours after his acquittal from plunder charges. With this, the warrant of arrest it issued against Revilla last June 19, 2014 was "recalled and further declared no force and effect". However, a copy of the decision should first reach the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), before Revilla is allowed to leave the Philippine National Police (PNP) Custodial Center in Camp Crame, Quezon City where he has been detained since 2014. Revilla earlier posted a bail of P480,000, or P30,000 for each of the 16 cas...Keep on reading: Sandiganbayan orders release of Revilla from detention.....»»

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.

Court denies with finality Revilla bid to stop trial

  The Sandiganbayan has denied with finality the appeal of former Sen. 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.....»»

Chooks-Pilipinas no match for Iran, playoff matchup with Blatche and China is next

Well, Chooks-to-Go's group play performance is uneven at best. br /> br /> Iran's Petrochimi smashed Team Pilipinas in the 2017 FIBA Asia Champions Cup Tuesday, posting a dominant 87-66 win at the Chenzhou city arena in Chenzhou, China. br /> br /> Breaking the game open in the second quarter, Petrochimi topped Group A with a 3-1 record while Chooks-to-Go finished with a 2-2 mark. br /> br /> Still, Team Pilipinas is moving on to the next round despite a flat performance this time around.
