Janet Lim-Napoles, the woman in the center of the pork barrel scam, is beginning to get used to living in detention, the Philippine National Police (PNP) spokesman said Wednesday.
Sr. Supt. Reuben Theodore Sindac said Napoles’ health has greatly improved on her third day in Fort Santo Domingo in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
Sindac that all of Napoles’ vital signs were normal, and so were her blood pressure and blood glucose level, Sindac told reporters in Camp Crame.
Her blood pressure shot up dawn Monday after she suffered an “anxiety attack” that was reportedly triggered by claustrophobia.
The following night, the businesswoman’s blood pressure rose again after she experienced a tingling sensation on the left side of her face.
Medical staff of the police camp attended to Napoles.
Sindac said Napoles reportedly suffers from hypertension, nausea, headache and her blood pressure shot-up again.
On Wednesday, she had corned beef, egg omelet and rice for breakfast and pork nilaga and rice for lunch, Sindac said.
He added that custodians of the detainee had gone to the court Tuesday to discuss among others issues about her medical problems.
“The agenda was all about medical concerns. They also discussed emergency cases and there should be a doctor’s clearance first before she could be brought to a hospital. All other reasons need a court order,” Sindac said.
There was no word if Napoles was expecting visitors on Wednesday.
