Here is a list of people allegedly involved in the Janet Lim-Napoles scam based on affidavits submitted by whistle-blowers and findings of the Commission on Audit (COA) reports of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM):

  • Sen. Ramon Revilla Jr. allowed his pork barrel to be used by the Napoles NGOs in 22 instances. In its special audit report released on Aug. 16, the COA found that Napoles NGOs received 413.29 million from Revilla's office from 2007 to 2009. According to 2012 reports by COA and the DBM, Revilla gave 20 million to Napoles NGOs in two towns.

  • Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile allowed his pork barrel to be used by the Napoles NGOs in 21 occasions. The COA report found that Napoles NGOs received 332.7 million from Enrile's office from 2007 to 2009. According to 2012 reports by COA and DBM, Enrile gave 10 million to a Napoles NGO in one town.

  • Sen. Jinggoy Estrada allowed his pork barrel to be used by the Napoles NGOs 18 times. The COA report found that Napoles NGOs received 191.58 million from Estrada's office from 2007 to 2009. According to 2012 reports by COA and DBM, Estrada gave 63 million to Napoles NGOs in four towns.

  • Jessica Lucila "Gigi" Reyes, former chief of staff of  Enrile, was dubbed the "24th senator" as she signed checks in the millions on behalf of the then Senate President and issued memos to Senate functionaries involving the funds of the chamber. She resigned in December 2012 in the aftermath of the furor regarding the selective distribution of Christmas bonuses to senators by the then Senate President. A witness said that he and another employee delivered millions of pesos in cash to her house in La Vista, Quezon City. Whistle-blower Benhur Luy also tagged Reyes as one of Napoles' main contacts with Enrile's office along with Jose Antonio Evangelista.

  • Jose Antonio Evangelista, identified as Enrile's deputy chief of staff, was tagged by whistle-blowers as one of Napoles' main contacts in Enrile's office. According to the whistle-blowers, Evangelista's role was to provide documentation to JLN.

  • Ruby Tuason is the former social secretary of former President and now Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada. According to the witnesses, deliveries were made twice between 2009 and 2011 to her house in Dasmariñas Village in Makati City. The whistle-blowers also named Tuason as Napoles' conduit in the offices of Enrile and Senator Estrada. Luy's record also showed that Tuason received 60 million from JLN, but it was not clear whether she received it for Enrile or Estrada. 

  • Pauline Labayen is the deputy chief of staff of Sen. Jinggoy Estrada. According to Estrada's chief of staff, lawyer Raquel Mejia, Labayen is the appointments secretary of the senator. 

  • Richard Cambe is Revilla's chief political adviser. He was identified as among the senior congressional staff members who served as conduits for channeling funds from the lawmaker to Napoles, according to whistle-blowers. In one of the sample transactions that the whistle-blowers' lawyer Levito Baligod furnished the media in August, it was revealed that Cambe received 9.5 million from JLN on April 11, 2007, drawn from a 20-million project of Revilla in 2008.

  • Rodolfo Plaza was Agusan del Sur representative from 2001 to 2010. Plaza was among the 28 lawmakers tagged by whistle-blowers to be among those who had allowed Napoles' dummy nongovernment organizations (NGOs) to use his pork barrel for purported ghost projects. According to affidavits filed in the National Bureau of Investigation, Plaza allowed his pork to be used nine times.

  • Rizalina Seachon-Lanete represented Masbate's third district from 2004 to 2010. Lanete allowed her pork to be used 13 times by the Napoles NGOs.

  • Samuel Dangwa was Benguet representative from 1987 to 1995, and from 2001 to 2010. Dangwa allowed his pork to be used eight times by Napoles NGOs.

  • Edgar Valdez represented the Association of Philippine Electric Cooperatives from 2002 to 2010. According to whistle-blower Benhur Luy, state-owned National Livelihood Development Corp. (NLDC) received 30 million in 2009 and 2010 from Valdez's PDAF. NLDC was used as the conduit for around 1 billion of pork barrel funds by seven Napoles NGOs from 2008 to 2012.

  • Prospero Pichay represented Surigao del Sur's first district from 1998 to 2007. Pichay has been identified as an "investment partner" in Asia Star Power Resources Corp., a coal trading firm controlled by the Napoles family.
