Her latest tweet, was about Ramon Revilla who is currently behind bars due to plunder charges. This is for his alleged involvement in the 10 million peso pork barrel scam. On Twitter, Ethel said:
“Kuha po kayo ng NBI Clearance sa counter 6. Charot!”
Because of his incapability to file the COC himself due to his confinement, his wife, Lani Mercado, and son Jolo Revilla filed it for him.
It made a lot of netizens wonder about the injustice of allowing a person behind bars running for a seat in the government. As regular citizens, they wondered why everyone else is required an NBI clearance along with many other requirements when applying for a job.
Based on the official Senate government website the requirements for running as senator are as follows:
