Malacañang appealed Thursday not to preempt the ongoing investigation to the P10-billion pork barrel anomaly stressing that the inquiry will go where the evidence leads it.

In a press briefing in Malacañang, reporters asked Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda if the Aquino government is still interested in running after the big fishes with regards to the pork barrel scam.

“Don’t preempt. My request to the press is don’t preempt this government. The President has already said: ‘Where the evidence leads, we will go there',” Lacierda said.

“So please don’t preempt our administration. The investigations are ongoing and, once charges are filed, you will know.”

Fugitive Janet Lim-Napoles surrendered to President Benigno S. Aquino III Wednesday evening in Malacanang. Napoles is facing a serious illegal detention charge.
The President sees Napoles’s surrender as a step towards the right direction of achieving justice and finally uncovering the truth concerning the alleged misuse of the priority development assistance fund (PDAF), Lacierda said.

The camp of Napoles said it would cooperate with the ongoing investigation into the multi-billion pork barrel scam.

The anomaly stemmed from the alleged anomalous spending by some lawmakers of their pork barrel allocations through the use of bogus or non-existing foundations and other organizations.

On Wednesday, the President announced a P10-million reward offer to anyone who can provide information to authorities that could lead to the arrest of Napoles. (PND)
