MANILA — After Justice Secretary Leila De Lima’s statement that the Ombudsman may now file charges against the three senators involved in the scam, the Philippine National  Police (PNP) has already prepared a facility where the senators may be detained.

PNP Criminal Investigation and Detention Group (CIDG) chief Dir. Benjamin Magalong said in an exclusive interview for GMA News that the facilities were especially made for Senators Juan Ponce-Enrile, Jinggoy Estrada and Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr..

“Meron na tayo. Naka-ready ang ating headquarters service. Meron nang lugar sa ating Custodial Center kung saan sila pagdadalhan,” Magalong said.

(We already have it. The headquarters service is now ready. There is also a place for the Custodial Canter where they will be brought.)

The three senators, who are facing plunder charges before the office of the Ombudsman, earlier filed a motion for reconsideration to junk the cases filed against them. 

The Office of the Ombudsman however, denied the motion and is now expected to elevate the case before the Sandiganbayan to fasten up the issuance of the arrest warrants against them.
