One of the most important tip given by Senator Santiago to Janet Napoles is a friendly suggestion which she stated “This is a friendly tip from a lawyer,” Santiago told Napoles. “Tell the truth before the senators affected will have you assassinated.” Sen. Santiago stated.

Senator Santiago also asked Napoles how much JLN Corporation earned and wondered how a relatively small company could sustain the Napoles family’s posh lifestyle but she refused to answer the question and mentioned that a case has already been filed in the Bureau of Investigation.

Aside from the impressive questionings given by the brilliant Senator Santiago, she also delivered some tirades which alludes to her nemesis, Senator Juan Ponce Enrile, Santiago then moved to convince Napoles to speak by enumerating the benefits of being a state witness.

Senator Santiago stated that if Napoles isn’t the most guilty, she may be eligible to become a state witness, he said, “Sino and most guilty? Hindi mo alam? Alam ko eh…senador, because he owns an empire!” Santiago added.
