MANILA, Aug. 30 (PNA/News Feature) — Janet Lim-Napoles, the alleged mastermind behind the P10-billion pork barrel fund scam, was served prison food for lunch Friday at the Makati City Jail, based on radio reports.
Her meal for lunch consisted of “ginisang toge with tokwa” and the usual rice.
The decision to serve Napoles food prepared by the prison was part of precautionary measures to ensure her safety.
Napoles liked her meal, radio reports added.
Jail officials are wary of the possibility that food brought in from the outside could be poisoned, it added.
Napoles surrendered to President Benigno Aquino III Wednesday, hours after Aquino announced a P10-million reward for information leading to her arrest.
Her lawyer Lorna Kapunan said this was due to Napoles’ fears that some groups were out to silence her.
While Napoles stayed at Camp Crame on Wednesday night, the Makati City court which ordered her arrest for serious illegal detention of whistleblower Benhur Luy, ordered her transferred to Makati City Jail. (PNA)
