MANILA - Rehabilitation czar Panfilo Lacson on Friday said he is thinking of turning over to Justice Secretary Leila de Lima a list of lawmakers who supposedly transacted with alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim Napoles.

"Yes, I am amenable. I'm actually thinking of turning over the documents and even the USB to her," he said.

Napoles, who is accused of masterminding a scheme that siphoned billions of pesos in Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) to fake foundations, earlier gave de Lima a list of officials who allegedly benefited from the scam.

Lacson later said he also received the list from Napoles' husband.

Jueteng whistle-blower Sandra Cam said she also has the list but would not say who gave it to her.

De Lima earlier told radio DZMM that she does not know if the two other lists match hers. She said she is willing to talk to Cam and Lacson to compare lists.

She also denied that she is fighting with Cam, saying that it is premature to release the list to the public.
