Vmean­while, found Revilla’s co-ac­cused Richard Cambe, his for­mer chief of staff and pork bar­rel scam mas­ter­mind Janet LimNapoles guilty of the same charges.

The two were sen­tenced to suf­fer reclu­sion per­petua or a max­i­mum of 40 years im­pris­on­ment and were barred from hold­ing pub­lic of­fice.

Revilla was ac­cused of pock­et­ing P224 mil­lion in kick­backs from bo­gus projects with the aid of Napoles.

He has been de­tained at the Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice Cus­to­dial Cen­ter in Camp Crame since June 2014.

Revilla is still fac­ing graft charges, also in re­la­tion to the pork bar­rel scam.
