Two non-government organizations (NGOs) transferred P146.2 million to the bank accounts owned by companies controlled by Janet Lim Napoles, an official of the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) told the Sandiganbayan’s Fifth Division on Monday.
Bank Officer IV Orlando Negradas Jr., who testified in the hearing on Sen. Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada’s bail petition, said from 2009 to 2011, P123.92 million was transferred to the bank account of JLN Corp. from the account of the Social Development Program for Farmer’s Foundation Inc. (SDPFFI).
From 2010 to 2011, P22.3 million was transferred to the JLN account from Masaganang Ani Para Sa Magsasaka Foundation, Inc. (MAMFI).
JLN stands for Janet Lim Napoles.
One of the findings of the AMLC was that “5 NGOs, including SDPFFI and MAMFI, transferred a total amount of P319,577,513.83 to JLN and JLN controlled corporations.”
SDPFFI and MAMFI were the NGOs that Estrada allegedly used in the implementation of his projects funded by his Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) or pork barrel from 2007 to 2009.
The SDPFFI and MAMFI were headed by Benhur Luy and Marina Sula, respectively.
Negradas said most of the transactions were made in cash.
