MANILA - Former Senator Panfilo Lacson said he is willing to meet with Justice Secretary Leila de Lima and help verify the names on the so-called Janet Napoles lists.

Lacson again reiterated he is willing to reveal the list he has, but only during an executive session at the Senate.

He denied "politics" had something to do with his claims that a list was also handed to him.

The camp of Janet Napoles admitted meeting with Lacson prior to giving De Lima a testimony. In Myanmar, however, President Benigno Aquino III said he has seen two lists that did not match each other.

Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago claims Lacson is part of a team bent on discrediting earlier findings against Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinggoy Estrada, and Ramon Revilla Jr.

Santiago alleged Lacson is in cahoots with Enrile. With a report by Jeck Batallones, ABS-CBN News
