MANILA - Senator JV Ejercito asked Senate Blue Ribbon committee chair Teofisto “TG” Guingona to continue the probe on the pork barrel scam to include questionable transactions of other NGOs, as well as the Malampaya fund scam.

In a letter to Guingona, Ejercito said that the committee report is so far “partial and incomplete as it only focused and narrowed on Janet Lim Napoles-related NGOs.”

“In view of this, it is my belief that the investigation has to continue to include all other anomalous transactions related to PDAF, as well as the Malampaya fund scam, and for the committee report to cover all COA-identified suspected bogus NGOs as indicated in the senate resolutions,” Ejercito said.

Other senators have also called for the continuation of the probe, amid a list of names issued by Napoles.
