Roque: Drilon should be probed on Napoles claim

Malacañang said Sen. Franklin M. Drilon should be investigated for allegedly accepting P5 million from alleged pork-barrel queen Janet Lim-Napoles.

In an interview with PTV4 last Saturday inside her cell, Lim-Napoles claimed that Drilon allegedly asked  money from her as campaign contribution or funds for his campaign when he ran for the 2010 senatorial race.

Lim-Napoles said she even personally handed the money, placed inside a black bag, to the senator inside a hotel in Makati.

According to Presidential Spokesman Harry L. Roque Jr., Drilon should be investigated because of this.

He added it is up to the Department of Justice to subpoena the senator and determine whether or not he violated the law for allegedly accepting money from Lim-Napoles.

“Hanap sila ng hanap ng butas laban sa Pangulo, e sila pala ang may mga tinatago na sekreto diyan,” Roque said in an interview with Radyo Pilipinas on Monday.
