MANILA, Philippines — Justice Secretary Leila De Lima and whistleblowers to the pork barrel scam attended mass on Monday at the National Bureau of Investigation before the filing of plunder cases at the Ombudsman.

Among the whistleblowers present were Benhur Luy and Merlina Suñas, both former employees of Janet Lim-Napoles, alleged mastermind in the P10 billion pork barrel scam.

During the mass, the officiating priest called on Filipinos to stop being blind. He said the mass was held in support of the whistleblowers, for them to see that they are not alone.
