Cause of Death of Lawyer Richard Cambe, the Jailed Former Chief of Staff of Sen. Revilla
LAWYER RICHARD CAMBE – The Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) revealed the cause of death of the jailed former Chief of Staff of Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr.
The alleged misuse of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) is undeniably one of the biggest corruption issues on the history of the Philippine political arena. Also called as the Pork Barrel scam, the court proceedings took several years and many famous personalities were named in the issue.
One of the popular personalities whose name was dragged in the PDAF scam was Senator Bong Revilla. During the court proceedings, he was detained at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center.
Revilla was detained for four (4) years while serving as a Senator of the Philippines. His former Chief of Staff, Lawyer Richard Cambe, was also dragged in the issue for accusations of amassing millions of the PDAF fund.
In 2018, the Sandiganbayan gave its ruling on the accusations against Revilla, Cambe, and businesswoman Janet Lim-Napoles. The businesswoman was accused as the mastermind of the Pork Barrel scam.
The Court acquitted Revilla from plunder while Cambe and Napoles were convicted. The former Chief of Staff of the Senator was brought to the New Bilibid Prison. He and Napoles were sentenced to reclusion perpetua or at least 40 years of imprisonment.
Recently, a report about Lawyer Richard Cambe crossed the surface. According to ABS-CBN, the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) revealed that the former Chief of Staff of Sen. Bong Revilla died.
According to BuCor spokesperson Gabriel Chaclag, the cause of death of lawyer Richard Cambe was stroke. Based on the report, he was brought to Muntinlupa Hospital but he died.
BuCor said that there were no signs of foul play. According to the Department, the family was informed about his death and requested for privacy.
