Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II stated it is going to be as much as the Court of Appeals or Supreme Court to decide whether or not or pork barrel rip-off queen Janet Lim Napoles could flip state witness.

Aguirre took the place as Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales rejected the opportunity of placing Napoles below the Justice division’s Witness Protection Program as state witness to the case.

“In the event that they are objecting, then let the court decide,” Aguirre stated in a tv interview.

Aguirre earlier stated a re-investigation might be carried out on the rip-off because the earlier administration has been accused of being selective in operating after solely the opposition.

Napoles, he stated, could assist the federal government within the re-investigation.

Aguirre reminded the Ombudsman that the facility to position an individual below WPP is unique to his workplace.

“This is under the exclusive jurisdiction of the DOJ because the Ombudsman has no Witness Protection Program,” he added.
