Why JV didn't visit Jinggoy
MANILA - Senator JV Ejercito said he is planning to visit his half-brother, Senator Jinggoy Ejercito, as well as another colleague, Senator Bong Revilla, who are currently detained in the PNP custodial center.
He clarified that there was no intention to skip Estrada when he visited Senate Minority Leader Juan Ponce Enrile Wednesday.
He said that he had only asked the PNP for permission to visit Enrile to discuss issues concerning the minority and did not want to go beyond the approval given to him.
“Nag-ingat kasi ako dahil sabi ko nga kapag nagkaroon ng violation o labag sa visiting hours o protocols, ang binabawian ‘yung detainee e. So ayaw ko namang bawian sina Senator Bong, Senator Jinggoy kung sakaling dumeretso ako,” Ejercito said.
He said that he may visit the two “very soon,” most probably a week or two from now.
