Denials fly as names in ‘Napoles list’ go Public

14may denials napoles list

As the names of the lawmakers involved in the PDAF scam are leaked in public, denials are flying left and right.


After the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee released Lacson’s copy of Janet Lim-Napoles’ list this week, those whose names were included have denied any involvement in the issue or dealing with Napoles.


Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago denied the accusation, saying that her name was dragged into the issue since Lacson was an ‘attack-dog’ of her staunch rival in the Senate Juan Ponce-Enrile. Enrile’s name also appeared on the list, so did Senators Jinggoy Estrada’s and Bong Revilla’s, supporting earlier claims made by whistleblower Benhur Luy of their involvement.


The other senators who have been named in Lacson’s copy of the list were:


  • Francis ‘Chiz’ Escudero
  • Loren Legarda
  • Aquilino Pimentel III


Juan Miguel ‘Mikey’ Arroyo was also named in the list. The former congressman denied knowing Napoles during his term in the lower house. He added that the list has no value and that the motives behind its disclosure are suspicious.


Current Budget Secretary Florencio Abad also denied being involved in the scam.


In time with the publication of Lacson’s copy of the list, daily broadsheet Inquirer added several other names that are based on a copy they received from whistleblower Benhur Luy’s parents. Luy was Napoles’ finance officer and he saved records of Napoles’ transactions with lawmakers in digital format.


Incumbent senators named in Luy’s digital files:


  • Juan Ponce Enrile
  • Ramon Revilla Junior
  • Jinggoy Estrada
  • Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos
  • Vicente ‘Tito’ Sotto
  • Miriam Defensor-Santiago
  • Gringo Honasan
  • Loren Legarda
  • Aquilino Pimentel III
  • Manuel ‘Lito’ Lapid
  • Cynthia Villar
  • JV Ejercito
  • Franklin Drilon
  • Ralph Recto
  • Alan Peter Cayetano


Former senators named in the Luy files:


  • Edgardo Angara
  • Manny Villar
  • Tessie Oreta
  • Nene Pimentel
  • Rodolfo Biazon
  • Robert Jaworski
  • Robert Barbers
  • Loi Estrada
  • Ramon Magsaysay
  • Ramon Revilla Senior


Luy’s files also showed some surprising information regarding the lawmakers’ transactions with Napoles. For example, Lapid was the first senator to become Napoles’ client when he was still governor of Pampanga. As per Inquirer’s present calculation, Jinggoy Estrada tops the list of the most money used in Napoles’ bogus NGOs. He was followed by Revilla and Enrile.


Aside from the dates of transactions, Luy’s files also showed the amount used by each lawmaker, the number of release orders (Saros) used, and the bogus implementing agency to which they allocated the money.
