Sen. Teofisto Guingona III Monday night released copies of Napoles’ two affidavits to the media, but said he has not read the contents.
“In the spirit of transparency and the search of truth, and in line with my commitment to uphold the public interest, we are going to release to the media and the public and to my fellow senators, the copies of these two affidavits,” Guingona said in a press conference.
“Let the document speak for itself,’’ he added.
“We will wait for the Benhur Luy files. I understand it should be submitted by Wednesday, and then we will evaluate what we have, then we will consult the members, then we will make the necessary hearing,” he said.
By telling the truth, Napoles said she expected to step on the toes of many. “The truth hurts… but the truth will set you free,’’ she said in page one of her affidavit.
After months of prayer and reflection, she said she wished to shed light on the pork scam and Malampaya fund mess.
She said she was hurt by charges naming her as the pork barrel queen and mastermind, and describing her as “most guilty,’’ “center of controversy’’ and “architect of the PDAF scam.’’
“I am not the mastermind of the pork barrel because I didn’t start this; this has long been practice or system,’’ she said. And neither is she “the most guilty,’’ she added.
In fact, the agents of lawmakers were more knowledgeable of the scheme, Napoles said.
Specifically, it was through then Batanes Rep. Florencio Abad that she learned that she needed an NGO or cooperative to be able to deal with the agencies, she said.
Napoles named a certain Ruth “Allen’’ who helped her former aide Niel Tan in Congress, and one Catherine Mae “Maya’’ Santos who guided her in transacting with the Department of Agriculture and the Senate.
Guingona, whose staff picked up copies of the affidavits from the Department of Justice, said he would await the submission of Benhur Luy files before deciding when to resume the inquiry into the pork scam.
Justice Secretary Leila de Lima had twice asked for an extension for the submission of Napoles’ expanded affidavit. Her last deadline was Monday.
“I presume since we have been waiting for this for so long, that this is it,” Guingona said.
On resuming Senate investigation into the scam, he said that he could not yet set a definite date because they are still waiting for more information and documents that have previously been issued subpoenas. With a report from TJ Burgonio, Philippine Daily Inquirer
FUND DISBURSEMENT BREAKDOWN: SSS -Seven Senator Snakes (mga hayop sa damo) channeled hundreds of millions of pesos to Napoles NGOs for Bataan, Nueva Ecija, Pangasinan, Quezon and Bulacan. bong revilla “pogi”, enrile “tanda”, jinggoy estrada “kuya/sexy”, bong bong marcos, gringo honasan, loren legarda and tito sotto – JAIL awaits you. Mga kagalanggalang na sa serbisyong publiko, pera pala ng bayan, ipinagbubulsa nyo. Mahiya naman kayo. Magbigti nalang kayo.
Jess Diaz (The Philippine Star) September 14, 2013 (ABRIDGED)
Based on LGU annual audit reports (AARs) posted on the COA website and the senators’ fund allocations and project listings shown on the website of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), a select group of towns in Bataan, Pangasinan, Nueva Ecija, Quezon, and Bulacan was chosen to receive pork barrel funds.
For instance, the 2011 AAR for Pilar in Bataan shows that the town received P20 million in PDAF from Sen. Vicente Sotto III and P10 million each from Senators Jinggoy Estrada and Ferdinand Marcos Jr.
The money ended up with People’s Organization for Progress and Development Foundation, Inc. (POPDFI), the Napoles NGO that Luy used to head before he blew the whistle on the pork barrel scam.
Despite the irregularities in 2011, the following year, 2012, Estrada and Marcos, joined by Senators Ramon Revilla Jr. and Loren Legarda, allocated a total of P35 million for the town.
Pilar received P5 million from Estrada, while Revilla, Legarda and Marcos each gave P10 million. Just like the year before, the 2012 funds ended up with POPDFI.
Also last year, Dinalupihan, another town in Bataan, was the beneficiary-recipient of P23 million from Estrada, P5 million from Legarda and P10 million from Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile, for a total of P38 million.
The P38 million was used for the purchase of farming packages costing from P20,500 to P36,450 each.
For the first time, the audit findings mentioned the names of Marcos and Legarda, who did not figure in the COA special audit report on PDAF disbursements for 2007-2009, except for a minor entry for Legarda.
In Nueva Ecija, the town of San Antonio received a total of P90 million from several senators last year.
The funds were transferred to Kaupdanan (Samahan) ng mga Mangunguma (Magsasaka) Foundation, Ginintuang Alay sa Magsasaka Foundation, and Countrywide and Rural Economic Development Foundation (CAREDF). Kaupdanan and CAREDF, like POPDFI, are NGOs linked to Napoles.
Though the audit report did not name the senators who gave the P90 million, the DBM website shows that San Antonio was the beneficiary of P15 million each from Estrada and Sotto, and P10 million each from Legarda, Marcos and Revilla.
Also in 2012, several unnamed senators gave the town of Calasiao in Pangasinan a total of P30 million, which ended up with Kaupdanan.
The DBM website shows that among the senators who disbursed funds to Calasiao were Marcos, who allocated P10 million, and Sotto, who gave P5 million.
Sual, another Pangasinan town, received P47 million from unnamed senators. Like in Calasiao, the money ended up with Kaupdanan.
The DBM website shows that Estrada allocated P20 million to Sual, while Marcos gave P10 million.
Balungao, another town in Pangasinan, was the beneficiary of P10 million from Legarda and P5 million from Marcos for vermiculture or earthworm-growing projects.
San Carlos City, also in Pangasinan, received P10 million from Legarda and another P10 million from Sotto last year for vermiculture projects. There is no mention of the funds in the auditors’ report.
Revilla allocated P15 million to a fourth Pangasinan town, Umigan, while Sotto gave it P5 million. No such funds were mentioned in the auditors’ report.
Marcos gave the town of Bulacan, Bulacan P10 million. Auditors apparently did not find the money in their annual audit of the town.
San Leonardo, another Nueva Ecija town, received P5 million from Enrile. The funds ended up with Ginintuang Alay sa Magsasaka Foundation. The same irregularities in the transfer of funds to an NGO were noted.
The DBM website shows that San Leonardo was given P5 million each by Sotto and Revilla for organic farming projects.
Tens of millions of PDAF were also given to General Nakar, Lucena City, Quezon, and Sariaya in the province of Quezon, and Javier in Leyte, but audit reports on these LGUs have not been posted in the COA website.
Among other senators, Estrada and Sotto have given funds to Quezon LGUs. In San Antonio, one Quezon town that has already been audited, Estrada allocated P7 million for organic farming.
According to the COA special report for pork barrel funds disbursed in 2007-2009, 12 senators and more than 180 congressmen gave a total of P6.2 billion to 82 NGOs.
Of that amount, NGOs associated with Napoles cornered about P2.1 billion.
Estrada, Enrile, Revilla, Sotto, and Sen. Gregorio Honasan gave more than P1 billion to Napoles NGOs.
Honasan has not been mentioned in the 2012 LGU audit reports since auditors in some towns in Isabela, Batangas and Marinduque that received funds from him have not posted their findings.
Aside from these towns, he gave P30 million last year to NCMF for livelihood projects for Muslims in Taguig, Manila, Quezon City, Valenzuela, Caloocan, and Navotas in Metro Manila, and Subic, Castillejos, San Marcelino, and San Antonio in Zambales.
In 2011, NCMF handled a total of P96.5 million in PDAF. The audit report does not identify the lawmaker-fund givers.
