Bong Revilla sends chocolates and a note to his fellow inmate Senator Leila de Lima.
Lani Mercado said that his husband Sen. Bong sent her chocolates with a letter at the Philippine National Police Custudial Center in Camp Crame.
‘Bong has a good heart,’ Revilla’s wife, Bacoor Mayor Lani Mercado further said.
Mercado added that her husband and De Lima have yet to meet but said her family understands what the embattled senator feels.
Mercado added that they are willing to have De Lima join them in their prayer service in Camp Crame since the senator’s detention cell is near Revilla’s.
Mercado is praying for De Lima and that the senator would now feel what Revilla felt when he, along with former senators Jinggoy Estrada and Juan Ponce Enrile, faced plunder charges over their alleged misuse of government funds and were jailed while De Lima was justice secretary.
‘You should welcome this development as an opportunity to face the serious allegations against you in the proper forum,’ Revilla wrote to Delima on his Facebook page last week.
De Lima was detained in the PNP Custodial Center last February 24.
