MANILA, Philippines — The so-called “sanctuary fund” for Rodolfo Noel Lozada Jr., the key witness in the Senate inquiry into the scandal-tainted national broadband network deal, has reached P500,000, Senate Majority Leader Francis Pangilinan said Tuesday.

At the first hearing of the Senate at which Lozada appeared, Pangilinan had requested for the setting up of such a fund for the witness’ legal defense.

“After four days, the AMRSP (Association of Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines) Sanctuary Fund to support witnesses like Jun Lozada has now reached 500K [P500,000].” Pangilinan said.

Pangilinan said checks may be sent to AMRSP Special funds 28 Acacia Street, Quezon City, with telephone numbers 724 4434 or 448 5644, or deposited in MBTC Account No. 3259-07445-3.
