JUSTICE Secretary Leila de Lima on Thursday confirmed whistleblower Benhur Luy has already agreed he and his family be placed under the government’s Witness Protection Program (WPP).

Benhur Luy earlier exposed the alleged P10-billion pork barrel scam allegedly perpetrated by Janet Lim Napoles and his brother of the JLN Group of Companies where he was previously connected.

Luy identified five senators and 23 members of the House of Representatives in the alleged pork barrel scam.

Likewise, De Lima said she ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Anti-Fraud division to assist the Special Task Force to gather evidence in connection with the scam. AFP
