Napoles kids waive right to appear in graft trial


Businesswoman Janet Lim-Napoles’ children, Jo Christine and James Christopher, are asking the Sandiganbayan’s Third Division to “favorably consider” their waiver of appearance.

In a joint waiver filed on Wednesday, the two co-defendants in the graft charges filed against Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile, including their mother and several others, said they are waiving their appearance at the pre-trial conference and trial. This would allow the anti-graft court to proceed with the hearing even in their absence.

Jo Christine and James Christopher, who are out on bail, also assured the Sandiganbayan that they will appear before the court whenever they are required.
