Philippines Senator Estrada Refuses To Enter Plea In Plunder Case

by Wochit 0:41 mins

A Philippine lawmaker, the son of a former president ousted in 2001 on corruption charges, refused to enter a plea on Monday on charges he plundered $4.2 million from his congressional fund, saying the charges were politically motivated. Jose "Jinggoy" Estrada, an action movie hero-turned senator and eldest son of former president and now Manila mayor Joseph, stood silently in the court when the charges were read out. Estrada faces life imprisonment if convicted for plundering more than 183 million pesos from his congressional funds from 2004 to 2010.
