Manila: In connection with the P10-billion pork barrel racket, Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago and organizers of the Million People March have asked Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinggoy Estrada and Ramon Revilla Jr. to resign and demanded authorities should put these three senators in a regular jail instead of keeping them under house arrest or in air-conditioned palaces.
Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago and organizers of the Million People March outlined moves that should be taken against the senators following announcement by the Office of the Ombudsman that there was sufficient evidence to charge the three for plunder in connection with the pork scam. Santiago said several other senators linked to the PDAF scam should also be investigated and prosecuted.
