Senators can still report for work and will not be automatically suspended even with a plunder complaint filed against them before the Office of the Ombudsman, Senate President Franklin Drilon said Monday.

“They are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Remember, they are elected representatives,” Drilon said at a press briefing. 

The Senate leader made this statement after the National Bureau of Investigation confrmed that Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinggoy Estrada and Ramon Bong Revilla Jr. will be charged with plunder in connection with the alleged P10-billion pork barrel scam. —KG, GMA News
