Not even Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, a detailed political ally of Malacanang, is supportive of the transfer to have Janet Lim Napoles stand as attainable state witness in increase new instances within the pork barrel scam.
Pimentel believes that Napoles is unqualified as a state witness.
“Malabo na maging state witness si Napoles kasi hindi sya qualified. Dagdag ko lang na ang most guilty, ang arkitekto at engineer at conductor ng isang krimen ay hindi pwedeng hindi maparusahan sa ilalim n gating batas,” he stated.
“That would be the height of unfairness, hence a clear case of injustice or miscarriage of justice,” he stated.
Earlier, Department of Justice (DOJ) Sec. Vitaliano Aguirre II stated that efforts have been now underway to make Napoles a state witness within the forthcoming reinvestigation of the pork barrel scam.
