Whether she’s most guilty or least guilty, Janet Lim Napoles is still guilty and should be held accountable for her actions.
The veracity of her affidavit will determine whether her apology to the public is real and heartfelt or if she’s just destroying the reputation of innocent government officials.
That’s why the Department of Justice needs to scrutinize it thoroughly and compare it with the earlier testimonies of Benhur Luy, Ruby Tuason and other whistleblowers.
The other cases filed with the Ombudsman underwent the same process so it is imperative that Napoles’ affidavit goes through the same process to determine its truthfulness.
If it will be established that Napoles is lying, then she wasted the only opportunity to redeem herself for her sins against the public.
