Pork barrel scam whistleblower Benhur Luy and Merlida Suñas filed their counter affidavits before the Manila Prosecutor’s Office on Wednesday against the perjury raps filed by scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles.
Luy submitted his two-page affidavit along with other respondents Merlina Suñas and Gertrudes Luy at the office of Assistant City Prosecutor Philger Innovejas.
Clad in bullet-proof vest, heavily armed personnel of the Department of Justice – Witness Protection Program entered the Manila Prosecutor’s Office.
Luy and Suñas arrived earlier as expected because of security concerns.
Prosecutor Innovejas, meanwhile, asked the Napoles camp to submit a counter affidavit against the affidavit submitted by Luy et al until September 13.
