After his much-talked about revelation last night in Bandila’s Yes or No, former Senator and now Rehabilitaion Czar Panfilo Lacson submitted the controversial Napoles List or Napolist to the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee today.
In his list were 10 incumbent Senators and 2 former Senators and dozens of past and present Congressmen. The 10 current Senators that were listed were Senators Bong Revilla, Jinggoy Estrada, Juan Ponce Enrile, Tito Sotto, Loren Legarda, Koko Pimentel, Allan Peter Cayetano, Gringo Honasan, Chiz Escudero and JV Ejercito (who was listed as Congressmen) while the 2 former Senators were the late Robert Barbers and Manny Villar.
3 current Cabinet Secretaries were also present on the list former Congressmen Joel Villanueva (now TESDA Chief), Butch Abad (now DBM Secretary), and Proceso Alcala (now DA Secretary)
What’s notable about this Napolist submitted by Lacson is the absence of Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago’s name. Based on Lacson’s interview last night, he said “Yes” Miriam is on the list he has but is now nowhere to be found on the list he submitted.

Miriam’s Reaction on Lacson’s revelation
Right after Ping Lacson included Sen. Miriam Santiago’s name in Napolist, Santiago immediately denied any dealings with the pork barrel scam queen. In a statement she taunted Lacson to a “Gay List” and said she is pushing more to get the Benhur List because that was the list substantiated by documentary evidences and details. Below is the screen cap (via @karen_davila on twitter) of Sen. Miriam Santiago’s response to Lacson’s “tell-all”
