MANILA — After denying their motion for reconsideration, the Office of the Ombudsman filed plunder charges against three senators and other individuals involved in the pork barrel scam.

Plunder, which is a non-bailable crime, were filed against Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinngoy Estrada and Bong Revilla Jr. before the Sandiganbayan.

Several personnel from the Office of the Ombudsman brought the ream of documents on the pork barrel case, past 3 p.m. on Friday.

The Ombudsman has earlier denied the motion for reconsideration of the three senators after a probable cause to file charges against them was found.

In a statement, the ombudsman indicated that the senators “repeatedly received sums of money from [businesswoman Janet Napoles]…” 

Meanwhile, the Judicial Records Division is yet to set the docket number to the complaints and assign which division of the anti-graft court will receive the cases, through a raffle draw.
