• Napoles continues to have health problems


    JANET LIM-NAPOLES, the businesswoman in center of a multi-billion peso ‘pork barrel’ scam, continues to have health problems at her detention at Fort Sto. Domingo, Sta. Rosa town in Laguna province, police officials said on Tuesday.
    Senior Supt. Reuben Theodore Sindac, Philippine National Police (PNP) Public Information chief, said that Napoles early on Tuesday complained of another health problem on her second night at the police detention facility.
    “She [Napoles] complained about tingling sensation at her left face at around 1 a.m. and several medical procedures were undertaken on her,” Sindac told reporters in Camp Crame.
    The PNP official said Napoles is reportedly suffering from hypertension, nausea, headache and her blood pressure shot-up again.
    “She is suffering from hypertension and her BP was at 200/130. . .she took medicine as prescribed and they are closely monitoring her,” Sindac said.
    The PNP official said that Napoles had taken chicken hotdog, egg omelet and rice for breakfast and her lunch was consist of chicken pochero, rice and banana.
    For Dinner, the PNP official said, fried fish, stir-fried cabbage and carrots, rice and pineapple will be served to the detainee.
    “We expect her lawyers to visit her any time of today to include her private doctors,
    immediate family members will be authorized to visit her today,” Sindac said.
    Napoles has been detained at a modest house inside the sprawling police camp in Sta. Rosa— a site of training facility for members of PNP Special Action Force (SAF).
    She was first detained at Camp Crame immediately after she surrendered to President Benigno Aquino 3rd last week and ordered by the court to be transferred to Makati City Jail.
    The camp of Napoles then filed a petition before the court seeking for her transfer from Makati City Jail to either Camp Crame or in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
    The court granted her petition and ordered the police to took her custody and detained her at Fort Sto. Domingo, which was the former detention of former president and now Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada. ANTHONY VARGAS
