Enrile and Gigi Together Again … in Prison

Enrile is and will soon be not only a prisoner of Gigi Reyes’ love but a prisoner BECAUSE OF IT.

The Sandiganbayan ordered the arrest of Senator Juan Ponce Enrile in relation to the PDAF scam today.

The third division of the Sandiganbayan will be trying Enrile on plunder and 15 counts of graft.

GIGI REYES’ WARRANT OF ARREST ALSO ISSUED

His Chief of Staff, Gigi Reyes, whom socialite Ruby Tuason admitted handing kickbacks to at a Senate Blue Ribbon Committee hearing, has also surrendered.

enrile-gigi-mugshotReyes is reportedly Enrile’s paramour, with Enrile’s wife, former Ambassador to the Vatican Christina Ponce Enrile saying that this relationship between Enrile and Reyes is what forced her to go to the United States and ask for a divorce.

GIGI REYES’ FAULT?

Reyes has a reputation of abusing her role as Chief of Staff and of also having a lavish lifestyle. Whistleblower Benhur Luy also revealed that the fancy and very expensive 50th birthday party of Gigi Reyes attended by the who’s who of politics was sponsored by Napoles.

Enrile has said that he is not guilty. His lawyer, Ricky dela Cruz, has stated that the transactions were solely between Enrile’s staff Gigi Reyes and pork barrel scam alleged mastermind Janet Lim Napoles. Dela Cruz has said that Gigi Reyes’ actions were not authorized by Enrile.

Enrile and Reyes traded barbs after dela Cruz revealed that Reyes was not authorized to endorse pork barrel funds to Napoles NGOs.

They are facing a sentence far worse than “I Do.”

Sandiganbayan Third Division composed of Presiding Justice Amparo Cabotaje-Tang and Associate Justices Samuel Martires and Alex Quiroz. Enrile is charged with one count of plunder and 15 counts of graft. Enrile allegedly abused P345 Million of pork barrel funds. Also charged with plunder are some staff of the three senators, notably Enrile’s staff Gigi Reyes and Jinggoy’s staff Pauline Labayen.Read more: Sandiganbayan Divisions Named.
