Why Did Senator Kiko Pangilinan Fear Janet Napoles As A State Witness?



Liberal Party Senator Kiko Pangilinan believes that Janet Napoles cannot be a state witness because according to him, she is the mastermind of Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) scam.

In a recent interview with Sen. Jinggoy Estrada, he allegedly revealed that Sen. Pangilinan also part of the said PDAF scam that led to a lot of netizens to think twice why he disagreed to make Napoles as a state witness of PDAF scam.

In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said, "if Janet Napoles is the only way to reveal all those crooks in the Philippine government, then let her do her part to be a state witness."

The crime here is plunder or graft, and I think every Filipino has the right to know what is really the truth about those high-ranking government officials who committed corruption by conspiracy.

Some legal experts have agreed to this kind of idea, but they've also wondered whether Napoles can qualify as a state witness since she is not the least guilty and is in fact accused of being the mastermind of the PDAF scam.

In one of the interviews of DOJ Sec. Aguirre, he said, “Yes, we’re actually planning to meet with her for our review of the PDAF cases,” referring to Janet Napoles as a state witness of PDAF Scam. 

Of course, many people commented that the credibility of Janet Napoles would still depend on her statements whether she really has knowledge of everything.

Now, Senator Kiko Pangilinan has feared Janet Napoles to become a state witness because she might be used as an instrument to persecute Duterte's opponents, but netizens now believe that Napoles probably knew that some Liberal Party Senators are actually involved to PDAF scam. That's one of the reasons why they do not agree to the credibility of Napoles.
