MANILA – Sen. Jinggoy Estrada is now the cellmate of Sen. Bong Revilla Jr. after the Sandiganbayan ordered their detention at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center in Camp Crame in Quezon City.

The 51-year-old Estrada surrendered Monday to police and was booked for plunder and graft.

Estrada is among 54 people indicted for the P10-billion pork barrel scam.

Last Friday Revilla, who voluntarily surrendered to the Sandiganbayan, was the first to be detained at a newly built bungalow in Camp Crame.

Meantime, some Philippine senators, including Senate Majority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano said Senate Minority leader Juan Ponce Enrile should not be detained at Camp Crame for humanitarian reasons.

They say the 90-year-old Enrile should be granted hospital arrest because of his old age and frail condition.

    Hey guys Enrile is like anyone else that steal from the poor, lock him up with all of them in jail? He isn’t someone special just a old man that took money from the poor Filipinos. Lock him up with Revilla and Estrada for a long time in jail.

    I was watching Tv Patrol, and why do they have to put Enrile,Estrada and Revilla in a cell look like a hotel room? Why they should lock them in prison with the other prisoners? You see how “STUPID.” Philippines government is. That’s why if your rich you can do anything you want, but if your poor your treated like “ANIMALS.” Sad county very sad.
