    Release pork barrel documents – Phl senator

     

    SENATOR Alan Peter Cayetano on Monday called on Philippine President Benigno Aquino III to release documents of government agencies whose transactions were connected to the controversial P10-billion pork barrel scandal.
    Cayetano made the call shortly after the Senate blue ribbon committee chaired by Sen. Teofisto Guingona issued a subpoena ordering Justice Secretary Leila de Lima to submit to his office the draft affidavit of scam queen Janet Lim-Napoles.
    Guingona told reporters that he will disclose to the public contents of Napoles’ affidavit once he takes hold of it.
    Earlier reports said the affidavit which is being kept by De Lima also contains names of senators and congressmen, including some government officials, linked to the pork barrel controversy.
    The whistleblowers reportedly failed to include the names of lawmakers and officials in their testimonies submitted to the justice department.
    De Lima, meanwhile, issued a statement, saying she’ll cooperate with the Senate blue ribbon committee regarding the affidavit of Napoles.
    The lawmakers reportedly used the bogus nongovernment organizations (NGOs) of Napoles as channel for the release of their pork barrel funds.
    The multibillion pork barrel scandal is being investigated by the Senate blue ribbon committee.
