JING­GOY’S FIRST PARTY

YES! (Philippines) - - Stargazing -

For­mer ac­tor and Se­na­tor Jing­goy Estrada (third from left) was re­leased on a P1.33-mil­lion bail last Septem­ber 16, 2017, af­ter be­ing de­tained for more than three years on graft and plun­der charges for his al­leged in­volve­ment in the multi­bil­lion-peso pork barrel scam of 2013. On Oc­to­ber 8, three weeks af­ter he left the Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice Cus­to­dial Cen­ter in Camp Crame, Que­zon City, he at­tended his first show­biz event since his de­ten­tion.

That event was the birth­day party of his friend, en­ter­tain­ment colum­nist-turned-blog­ger Al­lan Diones (left­most).

With the birth­day boy and the for­mer se­na­tor are ac­tors Christo­pher de Leon (sec­ond from left) and Tirso Cruz III (right­most).

Jing­goy, whose full name is Jose Pi­mentel Ejercito Jr., ar­rived late and stayed only for a brief chat. He said he only made good on his word that he would at­tend Al­lan’s party. Al­lan, who is as­so­ci­ated with Jing­goy’s show­biz man­ager Lolit So­lis, was one of the for­mer se­na­tor’s reg­u­lar vis­i­tors in Camp Crame.
