MANILA - The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) continues to vet and evaluate the so-called "Napolist" submitted by alleged "pork barrel" scam queen Janet Lim Napoles to Justice Secretary Leila De Lima.

In an interview with reporters, De Lima said the NBI is still collating relevant documents such as special allotment release orders (SAROs), although these documents do not necessarily prove that the lawmakers named in Napoles' list actually pocketed kickbacks and commissions from their "pork barrel" funds allocated to Napoles NGOs.

As to the 3rd batch of "pork barrel" scam cases, De Lima said the evaluation process is ongoing to make sure that there is sufficient proof to stand court scrutiny regarding the lawmakers' receipt of the kickbacks and commissions.
