Lawyer: Napoles ‘will tell all’
MANILA, Philippines—The “queen” is ready to spill the beans.
After meeting with Justice Secretary Leila de Lima at the Ospital ng Makati, Janet Lim Napoles, the alleged mastermind of the Priority Development Assistance Fund scam, who has been known as the “pork barrel scam” queen is ready to reveal her knowledge on the P10-billion embezzlement scheme.
In an interview with INQUIRER Radio 990AM, Attorney Bruce Rivera, Napoles’ legal counsel, said that his client’s affidavit could reveal so much.
“She will tell all, that’s all I can say,” Rivera said Tuesday morning. “That’s what we talked about.”
Rivera, however, did not disclose the contents of the affidavit as it would still be evaluated and he is bound with the attorney’s duty of confidentiality with his client.
He also confirmed that Napoles told de Lima her plan to tell all.
