NAPOLES LIST. Senator Panfilo Lacson submits the 'Napoles list' to the Senate.

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Rehabilitation Secretary Panfilo Lacson submitted his copy of the controversial Napoles list to the Senate blue ribbon committee on Tuesday, May 13.

Lacson’s list of lawmakers alleged pork barrel scam Janet Lim Napoles supposedly implicated includes the name of 12 current and former senators.

The following are the senators named in the list: 

  1. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr 
  2. Jinggoy Estrada 
  3. Juan Ponce Enrile 
  4. Vicente “Tito” Sotto III
  5. Loren Legarda
  6. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III
  7. Manny Villar
  8. Alan Peter Cayetano 
  9. Robert Barbers 
  10. Francis Escudero 
  11. Gregorio Honasan II
  12. JV Ejercito 

Lacson’s two-page list also names Budget Secretary Florencio Abad, who was Batanes representative, and Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala.

Abad also issued a strong denial of any involvement in the pork barrel scam or with Napoles, while Malacañang said the budget and agriculture secretaries still enjoy the President’s trust.

The list names the 3 senators already indicted for plunder over the pork barrel scam: Revilla, Estrada, Enrile. It includes 68 current and former congressmen including former House Speaker Prospero Nograles.

Strangely enough, the list provided by Lacson did not include Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, one of the names he had confirmed during an interview with ABS-CBN on Monday night.

The Lacson version of the Napoles list also includes the following administration allies: former Customs Commissioner Ruffy Biazon, who faces graft charges over the scam, and Technological Education and Skills Development Authority chief Joel Villanueva.

It also names relatives of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo: son, Pampanga Representative Mikey Arroyo, and her late brother-in-law, former Negros Occidential Representative Ignacio “Iggy” Arroyo.

Besides lawmakers, the list names executive officials from the departments of agriculture, agrarian reform, and implementing agencies.

It also includes provisional state witnesses: self-confessed bagman Ruby Tuason and Technology Resource Center chief Dennis Cunanan. The staff of the 3 opposition senators, and actor Mat Ranillo III are also part of the list under the classification “agents.”

Several of the senators and congressmen on the list denied any link to Napoles and questioned the credibility of the list.

Besides the list, Lacson also submitted a copy of the unsigned draft affidavit of Napoles, and narration of events.

“I hope that these documents will assist the investigation being conducted by your Committee and address the clamor of our people for transparency in public service,” Lacson wrote in his letter to Senate blue ribbon committee chairman Teofisto “TG” Guingona III.

Lacson said that in March, Napoles’ husband Jaime and two children approached him and gave him a copy of the 3 sets of documents: unsigned affidavit, narration of events, and the list.

Napoles’ lawyer confirmed that the family gave Lacson the documents but said the list he has is incomplete. Napoles later met with Justice Secretary Leila de Lima and supposedly gave her a more complete version of the list. Guingona ordered De Lima to submit her own version of the list by Thursday.

Napoles faces plunder charges for allegedly conniving with top executive and legislative officials to siphon off their pork barrel funds to her bogus non-governmental organizations in exchange for kickbacks.

The following are the names in Lacson’s list.  Some of the names have symbols to indicate mispelled names (*), the deceased (RIP), and a (?) for the wrong agency.
