Everyone got emotional when the video of Bong's wife, Mayor Lani Mercado singing 'Maghintay ka lamang' was shown.
Sen. Jinggoy Estrada gave an emotional message to his 'best friend' Bong.
“Sa aking kaibigan, gagawin ko ang lahat para makatulong sa ‘yo, para makalabas ka roon sa kulungan na ‘yun. At tandaan mo, kung merong FPJ at Joseph Estrada, merong Bong Revilla at Jinggoy Estrada,” Sen. Jinggoy said.
The two spent 3 years together at the PNP Custodial Center
Bong admitted that it has been more difficult for him since Jinggoy was no longer with him.
“Pare, ilang buwan ka na sa labas? Magtatalong buwan na? Three months na. Napakalungkot para sa akin na, kumbaga, dati nu’ng nand’yan si Pareng Jinggoy, kapitan kami, e. Pero ngayon, matibay pa ‘to,” said Sen. Bong
Meanwhile, he also praised and commended his wife for being an outstanding Mayor, wife and mother to their children.
“Mama, I salute you. Talaga namang Wonder Woman. Hindi na siya ‘yung dating Wonder Woman na kung saan man si Superman, you always wandering where I am. Ngayon talagang Wonder Woman na siya. Pero talaga Mama, I salute you. Thank you very much.”
Sen. Bong's youngest son travelled all the way from San Francisco, USA just to be with their family on Christmas day. Ram is studying in the US.
Even their eldest daughter Inah del Rosario who is now based in Davao is present at the Christmas Family gathering of the Revillas.
“Kumpleto ‘yung mga anak ko. Nandito sila ngayon kaya napakasaya ko. Kahit na 10 oras lang ang binigay sa akin ng Sandigan Bayan pero sobrang sulit na sulit na rin po ‘yun,” masayang pahayag ni Sen. Bong.
Revilla was accused of receiving through Cambe P224.5 million in kickbacks in exchange for diverting his Priority Development Assistance Fund allocations to ghost projects of dubious foundations allegedly run by Janet Lim-Napoles.
