Lacson shares content of Napoles list, Santiago, Escudero, Honasan, Cayetano, Abad included


Secretary Panfilo “Ping” Lacson did not hesistate to give five additional names  in Janet Lim-Napoles’ list of pork barrel scam personalities.

The former senator in an exclusive interview on ABS-CBN’s “Bandila” on Monday night, answered “yes” when asked if the following lawmakers were included in the yet to be published list:

Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago

Senator Francis Escudero

Senator Alan Peter Cayetano

Senator Gregorio Honasan

Budget Secretary Florencio Abad (former congressman of Batanes)

They are a supplementary to the earlier identified involved in the scam joining Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. and Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada.

The rehabilitation chief said that if the names on Napoles’ and on whistleblower Benhur Luy’s lists were combined, it would include 12 incumbent and 9 former senators.

He contradicted that Senate President Franklin Drilon and Senator Teofisto Guingano III were on the lists he saw – the one given to him by Napoles’ husband Jaime months ago and the records of Luy.

Lacson added that  two senators were in Napoles’ list but not in Luy’s. An statement on their connection  was included however  there were no supporting documents or an accounting of the commission theysupposedly received.

He  also countered  that he would run in the 2016 elections and that he was guilty in the Dacer-Corbito double murder case.

He believes that Napoles was a believable source though  she should not be permitted  to become a state witness.

Meanwhile, Senator Chiz Escudero and Senator Peter Cayetano denied that they have any dealings with Janet Lim Napoles. Escudero said that this is Napoles game plan and just confusing people. Cayetano said the alleged pork barrel mastermind would just want to inflict mass destruction to distract people.
