Eldon Cruz, the brother-in-law of former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino, has been tagged by a witness as being involved in the P8.7 billion road right of way (RROW) scam.

Witness Roberto Catapang Jr. said on Monday (November 27) said members of the syndicate have used Cruz as a backer in getting payments for their fake claims.

“Ginagamit kasi ang pangalan nya. Parati yan, parati nagagamit ang pangalan ni ano, sorry sir, si Eldon Cruz,” said Catapang.

Catapang presented a signed letter dated January 12, 2011 addressed to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) endorsing the payments of several of the fake claims.

“According sa kanila signature ito ni Eldon Cruz,” said Catapang who disclosed that the group boasted of having strong connections to Malacanang.

Apart from this, the witness said he saw other endorsement letters made by Cruz including one with a Malacanang letter head.
