• Blue Ribbon hearing: witness confirms deals between Napoles and lawmakers


    THE principal witness in the so-called pork barrel scam on Thursday confirmed that Senators and Congressmen transacted with Janet Lim Napoles, the brains behind the controversy, and received kickbacks from every project endorsement they made.

    Benhur Luy, the main whistleblower in the PDAF scam, also told the Senate Blue Ribbon committee that the implementing agencies are also getting “cuts” from every transaction made between Napoles and the legislators.

    According to Luy he initially worked as Napoles’ personal assistant and eventually assigned by handle all financial records of the JLN corporation which is the reason why he managed to get and kept copies of transactions records made by his boss from 2007 to 2010.

    Luy was accompanied by Justice Secretary Leila De Lima and his lawyer Levito Baligod
