Sen. Leila de Lima called the government movement to make Janet Napoles as state witness is "very dangerous"
De Lima stressed that Janet Napoles is not qualified to take the witness stand if probe on the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) scam should be reopened.
“That is a very dangerous, very suspicious move,” she said. “(Napoles) is not at all reliable.”
The Senator was the justice secretary when the scam was investigated, But only Naploes, along with Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinggoy Estrade and Ramon Revilla Jr., were only charged.
In a handwritten note previously released to the media, the vocal critic of the Duterte administration had already criticized Napoles, calling her a ”polluted source.”
In 2015 Napoles was sentenced by the Makati Regional Trial Court Branch 150 to up to 40 years in prison for illegal detention of her former employee and pork scam whistleblower Benhur Luy. She also faced graft and plunder cases at the Sandiganbayan.
The Court of Appeals acquitted the businesswoman last week, citing insufficient evidence for illegal detention case
