The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) is ready to reinforce the security for the so-called pork barrel queen Janet Lim Napoles after the Sandiganbayan has ordered her detention again to Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City.
Chief Inspector Kimberly Molitas, NCRPO spokesperson, said they have enough policemen to carry out duties like securing the detention facility and security escorts every time Napoles would attend court hearings.
Napoles was transferred to Camp Bagong Diwa after the conviction of a lower court on her serious illegal detention case was reversed by the Court of Appeals.
She is now being considered as a state witness in the controversial pork barrel scam that caused the filing of cases and detention of two senators, senators’ staff and some congressmen.
A lot of people, including President Duterte, has expressed doubts that Napoles would be allowed to be a state witness but Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre insisted that she, accused as the architect of multi-billion peso corruption from senators and congressmen’s pork barrel funds, is qualified.
