Breaking News: Senator Juan Ponce Enrile may go out on BAIL as per Supreme Court order

Senator Juan Ponce Enrile, currently in jail (hospital arrest) and charged with PLUNDER in connection with the Janet Lim Napoles PHP 10 BILLION Pork Barrel Fund Scam is all set to be released on BAIL. Fondly called JPE, Senator Enrile filled a petition with the Supreme Court pleading that the evidence against him is weak, thus he is entitled to post bail and be provisionally released while his trial continues. JPE, can therefore go back to his work in the Senate. As the Presidential elections of 2016 start to heat up, Senator Enrile is in the triumvirate (together with former President Joseph Estrada and current Vice President Jejomar Binay) that leads the opposition party, United Nationalist Alliance. Two other senators are also charged with PLUNDER, Senator Bong Revilla and Senator Jinggoy Estrada. All three have their cases in different divisions of the Sandiganbayan which means that each senator adopts different defense strategies. A favorable Supreme Court ruling on the case of Senator Enrile will naturally encourage the two other senators to attempt to go out on bail on the basis of a previous Enrile ruling. In the cases of Senator Enrile and Senator Jinggoy Estrada, there is no DIRECT evidence pointing to the two as their subordinates have been pointed to as the recipients of dirty money (kickbacks and commissions) from Napoles. Senator Revilla, on the other hand, personally received money from Napoles, according to whistleblower and prosecution witness Ben Hur Luy.
