Baguilat: Napoles as star witness signals witchhunt vs Duterte critics
Ifugao Representative Teddy Baguilat warned that making alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim Napoles a star witness signals a witch hunt against political opponents of the Duterte administration.
This after Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II said Napoles might not be the most guilty in the pork barrel scam, thus making her eligible to be a star witness to the case.
The Ifugao politiko said making Napoles a star witness gives her the opportunity to spin facts in her favor or against critics of the President.
“Of course, given how deep she appears to be involved in these scams, she would say anything the administration wants to get her out of her predicament,” Baguilat said.
“Ms. Napoles does not appear to be not the most guilty, as she seems to be the author, instigator and mastermind of the scams. For instance, one does not form bogus organizations by accident; it can only be done with express complicity and active involvement, contradicting any indication of being not the most guilty,” Baguilat added.
