MANILA - Senator Panfilo Lacson remains mum on his plans for 2016.
Lacson told reporters, “right now, I am focused on Yolanda. I eat Yolanda for breakfast. I eat Yolanda for lunch. I eat Yolanda for dinner. I eat Yolanda for midnight snacks. I even dream of Yolanda.”
Lacson was appointed Presidential Assistant for Rehabilitation and Recovery early this year.
He grabbed headlines again this week after the camp of Janet Lim Napoles admitted seeking his help regarding the businesswoman’s plans to divulge what she knows about the pork barrel scam.
Lacson was approached by Napoles' husband, Jimmy, partly because he opted not to use his pork barrel in his 2 terms as senator.
On Wednesday, Lacson said the draft affidavit of Napoles links more than 100 people, including at least 10 other senators, to the pork barrel scam.
The 3 senators indicted by the Ombudsman for plunder and graft in connection with the multibillion-peso pork barrel scam are Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinggoy Estrada, and Ramon Revilla, all of whom are with the opposition.
Lacson warned that if the list is sanitized by the government, he will divulge what was given to him.
