Janet Lim-Napoles implicates 3 popular senators on the controversial multibillion-peso Priority Development Assistant Fund (PDAF) scam.

“These lawmakers, they are saying, were involved in the scheme similar to the original PDAF offenses where they used Napoles’ NGOs (non-government organizations) or corporations to get funds.” And “I believe they were already enumerated during the previous administration but were not included because they were supposed to be (in the) succeeding batches that never came,” said by Aguirre quoted by Philstar.

Aguirre said that the pork barrel fund anomaly was carried out while De Lima was not a senator. He also said that Napoles would confirm De Lima’s involvement in the PDAF scam if her affidavit was finalized.

The senator has also refused to give the names of other senators and other government officials. He explained that the implications should directly come from Napoles, whose camp is already planning to file criminal charges against the corrupt officials.
