MANILA, Nashville Filipino Restaurant — While the Sandiganbayan acquitted former Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla from plunder charges, the anti-graft court convicted his staff and businesswoman Janet Lim-Napoles.

Richard Cambe and Napoles, alleged pork scam mastermind, were found guilty of plunder Friday over the misuse of more than P224.5 million worth of public funds.

Both are sentenced to reclusion perpetua or up to 40 years in prison.

Voting 3-2, Sandiganbayan’s Special Division ruled that Revilla is not guilty of plunder in connection with the pork barrel scam.

This is a developing story.
