SEN. LEILA M. DE LIMA'S STATEMENT ON PORK BARREL SCAM MASTERMIND JANET NAPOLES' CLAIMS OF ALLEGED P8-M EXTORTION
Not everything that comes from a polluted source, especially a convicted criminal serving a prison sentence, with nothing to lose and who will do anything to get out of prison, is worth reacting to. Napoles' allegation that I extorted, or attempted to extort, money from her is one of them.
Napoles has the propensity to lie, being the mastermind of the PDAF Scam that funneled billions of public funds to the pockets of legislators and executive officials. When asked who among the senators and congressmen were her clients, she asked it depends on whom we wanted implicated. That is when I knew that Napoles is a liar and will lie and say anything to save herself and keep the money she stole from the government. That is when we decided that she will never be a credible witness because of her eager willingness to fabricate her testimony and implicate politicians in order to please government handlers. I refused to be her handler because she is a criminal, convicted for kidnapping and charged with plunder, and because she is a pathological liar.
I will not be surprised if her present government handlers are now telling her what to say and who to implicate in exchange for her liberty which has already been promised her by the Solicitor General.
