MANILA - Justice Secretary Leila de Lima will need to seek another extension from the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee to submit the affidavit of Janet Lim Napoles.

De Lima had given the Napoles camp until 12 noon to submit her comprehensive second affidavit to be able to meet the deadline of the Blue Ribbon Committee since she will be attending the World Economic Forum (WEF).

Lawyers for Napoles had promised she would be adding the names of more lawmakers who transacted with her.
