Palaces urges investigation on Drilon involvement in pork barrel

Alleged pork barrel mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles recently let out information that Senator Franklin Drilon received over P5 million from her during the 2010 elections.

Kilala niya (Drilon) po ako at sa katunayan po nagbigay po ako ng donations nung election, nung tumakbo po siya nung 2010 elections,” Napoles told Tulfo.

Napoles said she gave Drilon P5 million.

This was something that Drilon did not declare in his statement of contributions and expenditures (SOCE) which he submitted to the Commission on Election (Comelec), this according to Tulfo.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque commented on the issue by saying that because of this revelation, Drilon must be investigated.

Leave it to the DOJ (Department of Justice) but there should be an investigation. Let the process of accountability begin,” said Roque.

Drilon has already denied the issue, saying that he never received any donations from Napoles.

We deny having received any campaign contribution from Napoles. We have submitted our Statements of Contributions and Expenditures, which are open for public scrutiny,” he said.

We will not further comment on such obviously fake news intended to harass the opposition,” he added.

Drilon also went on to say that he will no longer respond to the issue because it was obviously fake news. He also said that this issue just came up simply to harass the opposition.

Napoles is currently detained at Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig. She has been there because of plunder charges she allegedly committed in regards to the misuse of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF).
