Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II hopes “pork barrel” rip-off queen Janet Lim Napoles would begin speaking quickly as soon as she has been transferred to the custody of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).
Aguirre has already bared his intention to search Napoles’s assist in the evaluation of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) rip-off by turning her right into a state witness.
“Kaya lang di nagsasalita si Janet Lim Napoles. Talagang nag-aalala siya, lalo na magiging endangered ang kanyang life,” lamented Aguirre.
Napoles is presently detained at the Correctional Institute for Women (CIW) in Mandaluyong City after being convicted by a Makati City court docket in a critical unlawful detention case.
“Unang ise-settle ang kanyang detention center kasi hindi nga siya magsalita hanggang andoon siya,” Aguirre mentioned.
Now that the Court of Appeals has overturned the Makati court docket choice and acquitted her, Napoles has requested the Sandiganbayan to switch her to the NBI.
Napoles is dealing with a number of charges together with the non-bailable offense of plunder in reference to the pork barrel rip-off.
