MANILA (UPDATE) The Sandiganbayan Third Division is set to issue an arrest warrant for Senator Juan Ponce Enrile after finding probable cause in his plunder case.

A magistrate told ABS-CBN News that the anti-graft court found probable cause against Enrile for allegedly amassing P172 million in pork barrel kickbacks from 2003 -2010.

The Ombudsman prosecution panel earlier submitted 9,000 pages of documents in the complaint filed against Enrile.

Two other senators, Jinggoy Estrada and Bong Revilla, are also detained for their alleged links to the P10 billion pork barrel scam. Report by Anthony Taberna, ABS-CBN News
