Napoles not qualified as state witness – De Lima


Napoles-mugshotsMANILA, 29Aug2013 (PNA) – Businesswoman Janet Lim Napoles is not qualified to become a state witness.

Justice Secretary Leila M. De Lima said this on Thursday if the bases are the information divulged by the whistleblowers in the P10-billion pork barrel scam.

De Lima said it now appears Napoles is the “most guilty” in the misuse of the pork barrel fund.

She added Napoles was the one who ordered the establishment of fake non-government organizations and she also directly talked with the lawmakers.

However, De Lima said, they are not ruling out the possibility in the future that Napoles may become a state witness, especially if she is ready to disclose everything she knows. (PNA)
