Napoles wants to be state witness – De Lima
Secretary Leila de Lima says the DOJ will have to evaluate the affidavit of Napoles to determine if she can become state witness.
MANILA, Philippines – Alleged pork barrel mastermind Janet Lim Napoles has finally agreed to “tell all” about the controversy and turn state witness, Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said on Tuesday, April 22.
De Lima made the statement in an interview with ABS-CBN at the Ospital ng Makati after talking with Napoles, who is confined at the hospital and is due to undergo surgery to have a myoma removed from her uterus that night.
“She sent feelers before the Holy Week. She said she’s ready to speak up, she’s ready to tell all and would execute an affidavit. That’s why we took her statement now. I agreed to talk to her on those conditions that she should tell all she knows about the PDAF scam,” De Lima said.
