MANILA, 28Aug2013 – Janet Lim Napoles, the businesswoman implicated in the P10 billion pork barrel scam, surrendered to President Benigno Aquino III Wednesday evening.
In a statement issued by the Office of the Presidential Spokesperson (OPS), Napoles, who is wanted on charges of serious illegal detention arising from the alleged kidnapping of Benhur Luy, surrendered to President Aquino at about 9:37 p.m.
“The President turned her (Napoles) over to the custody of Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas and Philippine National Police (PNP) Director-General Alan Purisima for processing and booking,” the statement added.
President Aquino earlier said the government is putting up a P10-million reward for information leading to the arrest of Napoles and her brother Reynald Lim. (PNA)
