MANILA - Merlina Suñas, a whistle-blower in the pork barrel scam, on Thursday revealed that she helped set up non-government organizations that implemented projects funded by lawmakers' pork barrel allocations.
"Pinagtulong tulong kami na magtayo ng foundations para magamit ni Mam Jenny sa pag-transact at pagkuha ng pondo sa ibat ibang agencies ng gobyerno," she said in her testimony before the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee.
She, however, admitted that she did not know how much were the kickbacks being given to the lawmakers.
Suñas said she was first assigned to follow up projects in Department of Agriculture Region 1 because she knew how to speak Ilokano.
