‘Janet will target Mar, Butch and Frank’ — Erice


Caloocan City second-district Rep. Edgar Erice claimed on Friday that the Department of Justice is planning to use Janet Lim Napoles to “target” officials and allies of former President Benigno Aquino III: ex-Interior Secretary Mar Roxas, ex-Budget Secretary Butch Abad and Sen. Frank Drilon.

“I have information that napoles will target butch abad, mar roxas and frank drlion. While ted failon will go after pnoy, mar, butch on the issue of housing,” he told reporters in a Viber thread.

Erice did not say who was his source of information.

Pork barrel queen Napoles was reportedly admitted as a state witness by the DOJ in her many pending cases before the Sandiganbayan.

She has asked the Sandiganbayan to transfer her to the custody of DOJ’s Witness Protection Program. She is currently detained at the Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City under the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology.
