Rabusa submits affidavit for witness protection program
Whistle-blower George Rabusa on Friday filed a supplemental affidavit to back-up his application for a full coverage of the government’s witness protection.
Together with his lawyer Noel Malaya, Rabusa met behind closed doors with state prosecutors and Martin Meñez, acting director of the Department of Justice’s Witness Protection Program (DoJ-WPP).
The ex-military budget officer, who alleged the late defense secretary Angelo Reyes of receiving P50 million as “pabaon” (send-off money), declined to speak with the media after the meeting.
“Let my lawyer answer your questions,” Rabusa said as he entered into a waiting car.
When asked to comment on Senator Antonio Trillanes III’s claim that a “powerful person” was behind former military comptroller Carlos Garcia, Rabusa replied in Filipino: “I don’t know.”
When he was asked if he would pay his last respects to Reyes, he said: “No, I will not go there.”
“We just submitted a supplemental affidavit to comply with the WPP requirement. That’s all I can say,” Malaya told reporters.
