Senator Estrada didn’t know he is funding Napoles NGOs


Senator Jinggoy Estrada’s camp on Thursday said the senator had no idea  he was promoting  non-government organizations under Janet Lim Napoles inspite of being friends with the the latter.

During an interview with  ANC’s Headstart, lawyer Alexis Abastillas said Estrada didn’t know  the NGOs were owned by Mrs. Napoles since  her name did not show in the registration papers. She added that Estrada’s role was merely recommendatory.

She also  stressed that Estrada did not know that he was giving funds to  "ghost projects" of the Napoles NGOs.

As of now, Estrada is  facing plunder charges before the Sandiganbayan for allegedl misuse of his PDAF amounting to P278 million.
