In one of her interviews, the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) whistleblower Janet Lim-Napoles named a big politician who has allegedly been involved with her transactions before.

On her statement before the press, the whistleblower said that during the 2010 elections, she gave a donation for the campaign fund. To who? She named Senator Franklin Drilon who was then a candidate.

When Janet Lim-Napoles was asked about how much did she gave to the senator, the whistleblower mentioned a whopping P5 million.

“Kilala niya (Sen. Franklin Drilon) po ako at sa katunayan po nagbigay po ako ng donations nung election, nung tumakbo po siya nung 2010 elections,” Napoles told Tulfo.

The interview, of  which some parts were aired on PTV-4, was with the veteran broadcaster Erwin Tulfo.

With plunder charges with regard to the supposed misuse of lawmakers’ PDAF, Napoles was then detained at Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig.

Tulfo thereby claimed that the Liberal Party-member senator failed to declare such in his SOCE or Statement Of Contributions and Expenditures which was submitted to the Comelec (Commission on Elections).

On the other hand, when Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque was sought for comment on Napoles’ latest expose, the spokersperson said it must be investigated.

In a text message, he said “Leave it to the DOJ (Department of Justice) but there should be an investigation.” adding “Let the process of accountability begin”.

Meanwhile, in a statement Drilon sent to Inquirer, he said “We deny having received any campaign contribution from Napoles. We have submitted our Statements of Contributions and Expenditures, which are open for public scrutiny”.

“We will not further comment on such obviously fake news intended to harass the opposition,” he added.
