Filipina doctor's open letter to Hontiveros: 'Filipnos not gullible enough to believe you'
Clarifying that Priority Development Assistance Funds or pork barrel mastermind Janet Lim Napoles was acquitted only for her illegal detention case, Doctor Andrea Carigma answered Senator Risa Hontiveros, saying the Fillipinos do not believe her statement that Napoles is almost free.

"Napoles is just a breath away from freedom" said Hontiveros through her Facebook account.

The Akbayan Senator said that with the help of the country's Solicitor General Jose Calida, Napoles' acquittal "seriously undermined the credibility of state witness Bnehur Luy".

She said Luy's testimony is the only thing keeping Napoles in jail, and thus all responsible for plunder may be released from prison.

The doctor answered by asking the senator to not take the Filipinos as gullible enough to believe her.

"Napoles was acquitted JUST FOR THE ILLEGAL DETENTION CASE - an acquittal which has evidence that Benhur Luy was not really illegally detained," she said.

"Now, the story about DAP and PDAF is another issue altogether - an issue that can pull down people in the legislative. Why are you so adamant about Napoles? Let her speak up. Aren't we for the truth, even if would hurt?," she added.

Hontiveros has previously expressed a fear that Napoles should become state witness would only target lawmakers of the Liberal Party, known to be the opposition to President Rodrigo Duterte's administration.

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre meanwhile said that the Department of Justice is considering the possibility of the pork barrel mastermind to become a state witness in their reinvestigation.
