- Belgica believes Napoles is only a willing beneficiary, but not the mastermind
- He added a businessman cannot be the mastermind in the PDAF scam
- Belgica is also happy now that Napoles is under WPP
MANILA, Philippines – Commissioner Greco Belgica of the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission believes Janet Lim-Napoles is only a beneficiary of the P10-bB pork barrel scam, but not the mastermind.
In a press conference in Manila on Tuesday, Belgica said the pork barrel scam is a ‘corruption of politicians’ and businessmen are there to just make money and benefit from it.
Belgica said he is also happy now that Napoles is finally under the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) witness protection program (WPP) because he believes that a businessman can never be a mastermind.
“It cannot be true that a businessman can be the mastermind because kung kahit na sinong contractor, kahit Janet Napoles pa yan, hindi siya ang last say sa mga kontrata,” said Belgica.
[It cannot be true that a businessman can be the mastermind because whoever the contractor is, even if she is Janet Napoles, she does not have the last say in a contract.]
Belgica added he believes that Napoles knows a lot about the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) scam and she’s ready to tell all.
“Janet is a willing beneficiary of corruption, but not the mastermind,” he added.
