2 Napoles’ lawyers to be rapped with disbarment


MANILA, 11Sept2013 (PNA) – A disbarment case will be filed against two lawyers of businesswoman Janet Lim Napoles for alleged manufacture of evidence against Benhur Luy.

Luy is the whistleblower in the P10-billion pork barrel scam and the P900-million Malampaya fund scam allegedly committed by Napoles involving some lawmakers and mayors.

According to Atty. Levito Baligod, counsel of the whistleblowers, the lawyers of Napoles allegedly taught other people to manufacture evidence to pin down the innocent people.

Baligod cited the order of the camp of Napoles to pin down Luy and make it appear he was the “mastermind”.

However, Baligod refused to give the names of the lawyers they want disbarred.

Nevertheless, Baligod gave assurances they are now preparing the disbarment case against the said lawyers.

It was earlier reported some of the whistleblowers were approached by the camp of Napoles to put the blame on Luy as the “mastermind” allegedly in exchange for P20 million.

Baligod added they will charge five government officials with plunder for receiving commissions from the pork barrel fund. (PNA)
