Funds totaling P6.2 billion were transferred to 82 nongovernment organizations (NGOs) “in clear violation of the law” from 2007 to 2009, all of which were either unknown or cannot be located at their given addresses, according to the Special Audit of the Commission on Audit (COA) released Thursday.

The COA report said 10 NGOs linked to Janet Lim-Napoles are on the list. Of this 10, six are among the Top 19 NGOs that received the bulk of the pork barrel funds, officially called the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF).
