Former Senator Jinggoy Estrada is having his best summer vacation ever.

This after the Sandiganbayan granted Monday the politiko’s request for a month-long trip to the United States with his family.

Estrada, who is facing plunder charges over the alleged P10 billion pork barrel scam, will have a family bonding in US from April 30 to May 31.

Apart from vacation, Estrada will also attend a good governance conference and undergo medical consultation with an orthopedic surgeon for “recurring shoulder problem.”

The long time politiko has accepted the invitation to speak at the US Pinoys for Good Governance (USP4GG), an organization headed by Filipino-American philanthropist Loida Nicolas-Lewis, on May 20.

He is expected to discuss extrajudicial killings, Dengvaxia mess and federalism.

This is the third time the anti-graft court allowed Estrada to go out of the country.

The first was when he accompanied his father for a medical trip to Singapore in November last year and second when he travelled with his family in Hong Kong in December.
