A witness in the 10 Billion Pork Barrel Fund scam identified Budget Secretary Florencio Abad for conniving with Janet Lim-Napoles.
However, Secretary Abad immediately denied such allegations from Merlina Sunas.
Sunas revealed that Abad, during his days as a Congressman of Batanes in 1997-1999 used to transact with Napoles back then.
In a text message from Abad, the Budget Secretary stated that he hasn’t seen the affidavit of the evidence that will prove the accusations against him. But he is already denying such claim because, according to him, they are baseless.
“But I have repeatedly said: I flatly deny baselss allegations linking me to the Napoles PDAF scam,” added Abad.
Prior to this, Napoles, in her unsigned affidavit already dragged Abad’s name as the person who taught her to put up fake foundations so that they can collect PDAF money from lawmakers.
