(UPDATED 6:32 p.m.) A total of 80 lawmakers, past and present, were in Senator Panfilo Lacson’s version of the list of names alleged mastermind Janet Napoles linked to the pork barrel scandal.
Aside from Senators Bong Revilla, Jinggoy Estrada and Juan Ponce Enrile, against whom charges are being pushed, the full list also included Malacanang allies.
Tagged in the so-called “Napoles list” are Senators Francis Escudero, Loren Legarda, Alan Peter Cayetano, Manny Villar, Koko Pimentel, who ran under the administration banned in polls.
More opposition senators were also in the list, including Senators JV Ejercito (as San Juan representative), Tito Sotto and Gringo Honasan. Ex-senator Robert Barbers was also in the list.
Budget Secretary Butch Abad was included in the roster as a member of Congress. Prior to his stint in the Cabinet, Abad sat as Batanes representative.
Lacson, now presidential assistant for rehabilitation and recovery, said he obtained the list from Napoles’ husband Jaime. It is only one of several versions of such a list.
Justice Secretary Leila De Lima has another list, which Napoles herself revealed to her in an affidavit. The Justice chief has yet to make public her version of the Napoles list.
The Senate Blue Ribbon Committee on Monday issued a subpoena for De Lima to disclose the list, amid rumors of efforts to “sanitize” the list of administration allies.
Aside from senators, 68 congressmen are also in Lacson’s version of the Napoles list. More prominent names included that of Mikey Arroyo, Iggy Arroyo, former Customs chief Ruffy Biazon and TESDA chief Joel Villanueva.
Officials from the Agriculture and Agrarian Reform departments, the National Livelihood Development Corp. and the Technology Resource Center were also named.
Missing from the Napoles list, however, is Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, who Lacson earlier tagged in the pork barrel scandal.
Santiago earlier slammed Lacson, who she said is acting as “attack dog” for Senator Juan Ponce Enrile. The senator added that she has never dealt with Napoles.
Abad also denied his involvement, saying, “I find it amusing, if not outright revolting, that I am once again in the crosshairs of those who want the Aquino Administration to fall.”
