Senator Sherwin Gatchalian is hopeful no politikos or personalities will be spared within the Department of Justice’s transfer to reinvestigate the pork barrel scam.
“The new investigations by the DOJ should not look at political color of the politicians involved. Selective justice was the main sin of the past administration. I just hope this reopening of the PDAF scam is not a political witch hunt but instead a quest for justice,” he stated in a textual content message to reporters Friday (May 12).
The authorities, Gatchalian stated, ought to conduct an intensive vetting of the statements of Napoles on whether or not she has concrete proof to substantiate her allegations.
“If proven that she has hard evidence, then it is worth hearing her testimony to finally end this saga,” he stated.
Considering that the administration is new, Gatchalian stated that is Napoles’ closing likelihood to point out new items of proof and inform the whole story.
“That’s why the government really needs to vet muna bago buksan ito. Ayaw ko rin magamit ang Senate for politics,” he stated.
