Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and at least three other senators on Wednesday confirmed that millions were added to the budgets of senators, but denied that these constitute bribes. In a statement released Wednesday, Enrile said that before the Christmas break he gave P1.6 million each as additional "operating expenses" to all senators except himself and his known foes:
- Senate Minority Floor Leader Alan Peter Cayetano,
- Senator Pia Cayetano,
- Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, and
- Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.
