MANILA, 29Aug2013 (PNA) – Security in the Makati Regional Trial Court where alleged pork barrel fund scam mastermind, Janet Lim Napoles, will make her appearance Thursday has already been beefed up.
This is the same court who issued the arrest warrant for Napoles and brother Reynald Lim for serious illegal detention.
Makati City police chief Senior Supt. Manuel Lukban Jr., said that they will provide escorts and support teams for Napoles’ convoy from Camp Crame.
Lukban added that they are used to providing security to diplomats and VIPs.
On Wednesday night, Napoles surrendered to President Benigno Aquino III and was turned over to PNP headquarters in Camp Crame where she was booked.
Her surrender came hours after Aquino announced a P10-million reward for information leading to her arrest.
Napoles had been tagged as the alleged brains involving bogus non-government organizations that received funds from lawmakers’ Priority Development Assistance Funds amounting to P10-billion. (PNA)
