'Million People March' organizers to keep eye on Napoles' case
MANILA -- The people behind the "Million People March" will watch closely as Janet Lim Napoles, one of the alleged key players behind the pork barrel scam, surrendered to President Benigno Aquino on Wednesday.
Speaking to radio DZMM, "Million People March" spokesperson Atty. Eirene Aguila said the government should be aware that the public will be keeping an eye on how the court handles Napoles' case, given the number of people who attended Monday's protest in Luneta.
Aguila also said that the people who supported Monday's protest are not expecting any special treatment for Napoles.
"I think ang important talaga is not so much only tonight, pero yung how the court investigation will be conducted," she said.
Aguila added that while Napoles is now under government custody, public officials should not forget the cry of the "Million People March," which is to scrap the pork barrel.
"Hindi lang naman si Janet Napoles ang pinupunterya ng mga sumisigaw sa Luneta. Di lang naman siya ang puno't dulo ng pagkilos noong Lunes.. I think tuloy pa rin ang panawagan na i-scrap ang pork barrel," she said.
