Iginagalang ng Malacañang ang naging desisyon ng Sandiganbayan kung saan inabsuwelto nito si dating Sen. Bong Revilla sa kasong plunder kaugnay sa pork barrel scam, habang hinatulan namang guilty ang dalawang co-accused na sina Janet Lim Napoles at Richard Cambe.
Sinabi ni Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo, nagsalita na ang korte at ginawa na nito ang constitutional duty na maggawad ng hustisya.
Ayon kay Sec. Panelo, anuman ang mga sentimiyento laban sa ruling, kailangang tumalima sa hatol ng Sandiganbayan.
Maaari naman aniyang umapela at gamitin ang legal remedies ng alinmang panig na sa tingin nito ay naaggrabyado sa nasabing kontrobersyal na ruling.
“The court has spoken and the Palace abides by its decision finding Ms. Janet Lim Napoles and Mr. Richard Cambe guilty and former Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla not liable for plunder in relation to the pork barrel scam. The judiciary has performed its constitutional duty of dispensing justice. While justice grinds so slow most of the time, it does grind, and when it stops it renders a verdict that is exacting immutable,” ani Sec. Panelo.
“Regardless of the sentiments to the contrary, we have to bow down to the judgement of the Sandiganbayan. We have consistently respected the independence of the Judiciary and we will continue to do so in this case as we implement the final orders of the anti-graft court on the matter. Nevertheless, we note that either party, whether for the prosecution or the defense, who feels aggrieved of the decision may still pursue remedies available under our procedural laws.”
