Malacañang finds allegation to Duterte as Napoles protector laughable

Presidential Spokesperon Ernie Abella said the accusations to the President Rodrigo Duterte as a protector of pork barrel queen Janet Lim Napoles is a big joke.


“Seriously? I doubt that. Thank you, next question,” said Abella while bursting in laughter in an interview with DRZB radio.

The president has received accusations of enteriong a deal with Napoles whose lawyers are his fellow San Beda Law graduates and among his loyalists, namely Stephen and Lani David, and Bruce Rivera.

Earlier, Solicitor General Jose Calida came to admission that he filed a manifestation with the court of appeals last Janaury declaring that the Makati Court judge erred in convicting Napoles for serious illegal detention in 2015.

Calida added that evidence indicating Napoles detained her relative and former employee Benhur Luy for three months is missing.

“I am not privy to those matters ‘no. Pero kung may usap-usapan sila hindi natin alam iyan. But definitely the SolGen viewed these matters and that’s what he decided on,” said unawre Ablella between the deal of Calida and Napoles for her acquittal.
