Bong seeks furlough to attend daughter’s debut

MANILA, Philippines – Detained Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. on Tuesday filed a furlough request anew, asking permission to attend the celebration of his daughter’s 18th birthday.

In his plea, Revilla asked the Sandiganbayan First Division if he can attend the debut of his daughter, Ma. Frazbelle Loudette Bautista, on October 24, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. or as soon as the celebration is finished at Bellevue Hotel in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.

"As part of the family-oriented Filipino culture, during Loudette's 18th birthday, her parents would present her to society as a young lady coming of age and formally turning into an adult. It is a tradition which daughters and their families prepare for, look forward to, and treasure for the rest of their lives," his petition read.

"As a father, Senator Revilla wishes to perform his obligation and be part of Loudette's special day," the motion added.

Revilla is currently detained at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center in Camp Crame, Quezon City facing charges of graft and plunder related to the P10-billion pork barrel scam.

Last July, Revilla also requested to visit his ailing father, veteran actor and former Sen. Ramon Revilla Sr. The court granted him five-hour furlough for that request.
