MANILA (Mabuhay) – Janet Lim-Napoles, alleged mastermind of the P10-billion pork barrel scam, used fake receipts and put several properties under other persons’ names, a whistleblower told a Senate probe Thursday.

Marina Sula, Napoles’s former employee, said the controversial businesswoman herself ordered the use of fake receipts for fund disbursements made by at least 20 bogus non-government organizations.

Minsan may mga resibo na peke rin na pinapagawa ni Mrs. napoles. Nagpapagawa po sya ng pekeng resibo,” Sula said.

She added that she was involved in the shredding of some important documents, including the fake receipts, before the alleged pork barrel scam broke out.

Sula likewise revealed that Napoles owned several properties in the Philippines and in the United States, but put them under the name of different persons.

Ipinangalan ni Madame sa anak niya at sa mga tao na hindi nila alam,” the whistleblower said.

Among the supposed Napoles properties identified by Sula were those located in Ortigas, Eastwood, Bulacan, Tandang Sora, Antipolo and Kidapawan City in Cotabato.

Sula also confirmed that Napoles owns a unit at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Los Angeles.

Earlier in the day, the Bureau of Internal Revenue filed a P61-million tax evasion complaint against Napoles and her husband, Jaime.  (MNS)
