Juan Ponce Enrile shrugs off petition to cancel bail grant
Former Senate president Juan Ponce Enrile just shrugged off the petition of two Cagayan politikos before the Ombudsman to cancel his bail grant.
Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba and former Buguey Mayor Ignacio Taruc earlier asked Ombudsman Samuel Martirez to cancel Enrile’s bail in connection to his plunder case before the Sandiganbayan.
Mamba and Taruc said Enrile should be healthy enough to be detained because he is running for senator again in 2019.
“Only the judicial system can say whether they want me to go back to jail,” Enrile said.
“If that governor can understand, I am presumed innocent until I am convicted by final judgment,” he added.
