“Wala po [There’s none],” Napoles said when asked by Senate Majority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano during Thursday’s hearing of the Senate blue ribbon committee.

Asked again by Cayetano if she had no PDAF transactions since she became a businesswoman, Napoles refused to answer the question, saying charges  have been filed in the Office of the Ombudsman.
