• Napoles needs caregiver by her side – lawyer


    The lawyer of Janet Lim-Napoles is requesting authorities to allow Napoles’ caregiver to stay with her in Fort Santo Domingo in Santa Rosa City, Laguna province.

    Kapunan said Napoles needed someone to look after her medication.

    She said the caregiver is a “little girl” who has all the medicines of Napoles.

    The businesswoman, tagged as the brains in the pork barrel fund scandal, was diagnosed with hypertension and diabetes.

    “We have to be assured that, that little girl, who is her personal caregiver, should be allowed inside (Napoles’ detention quarters),” Kapunan said in a television interview.

    She said the caregiver is allowed only in a hold-over area, which is very far from the detention facility.

    Kapunan also said it was not likely she will ask that Napoles be placed under hospital arrest.

    She said there were competent doctors at Fort Santo Domingo to attend to her client.

    Napoles is being detained on serious illegal detention charges filed against her and her brother, Reynald Lim by one of the whistleblowers in the pork barrel scam, Benhur Luy.

    She surrendered to President Benigno Aquino 3rd in Malacañang last week after the President announced a P10-million reward for her arrest.

    She was temporarily detained in Camp Crame and transferred to the Makati City Jail upon orders by Makati City Regional Trial Court Judge Elmo Alameda.

    Alameda later granted Kapunan’s request that Napoles be detained instead in Fort Santo Domingo for security reasons.

    1. Atty Kapunan then Go ahead tulungan mo sumama ka sa kulungan!!! Hindi ka ba nagagalit dyan Kay Napoles na nagnanakaw ng mga Tax na binabayad natin? O nakikinabang ka din sa mga nakaw niya???!!! Ano gamit ng mga Police woman dyan??!! Bakit gusto nya ng caregiver natakot siya sa multo? hahahaah minumulto na siya sa mga taong namatay sa gutom !!!!

    2. This liar, I am sorry lawyer should be charged with obstruction of justice. How can you defend this buaya. Who is brazen in stealing the people’s money. This lawyer has no professional ethics.

    3. Haha why the charade?! Eventually she will be transferred to St. Lukes so why prolong the moro-moro?!

    4. Sure. Poor Napoles must be really suffering by now. With all the money she have… Kawawa naman. Hindi sanay yan sa ganyang treatment. Dapat nga hindi lang caregiver, smahan na rin ng tagaluto, tagalaba, massage therapist, butler at secretary. Kasi hindi naman pababayaan yan ng mga senator at congresman. Baka sakali pag labas nyan konti na lang kurakutin eh baka may matira sa taong bayan. Tayo naman mga pilipino, kalimutan na natin yan. Sanayan lang yan. Sanay na tayo sa paghihirap. Pabayaan na lang natin silang lutuin ang kaso at makakalimutan din natin yan balang araw.

    5. With due respect to the prisoner, there should be no semblance of special treatment, since the patient is doing well with her medications, the only thing she has to do is follow the doctor’s protocol or instruction, with the caregiver on hand to follow the routine and time for blood sugar check or give insulin, if she is on insulin shot, also if she is on diabetic diet, must be ascertained that she gets it.

    6. Little Girl Caregiver? Here we go again start the comedy..health issues. However she never thought about poor Juan dela Cruz health issues when stealing tax payers money.

    7. Look like mas yadong nag fefeeling importante ni Napoles felling ata nya ay turista sya masyadong mraming demand kulang nlang e request sa Sanrila Hotel mag stay… hoy matandang kawatan mag isip isip kanga ganondin ang kanyang abogado feeling special..ano ba akala nyo mga bakasyonista kyo…kailangan nyong panagutan ang mga kabalbalang ginawa nyo. Napoles mag sanay kanang kumanta pra pag humarap ka sa husgado ay d ka sintunado mga BUWAYA KAYO NG MGA KASAGWAT MO ANG KAKAPAL NG MGA MUKHA NYO…

    8. Open question to this Kapunan character – is she in favor of allowing every single prisoner to have their personal aide (alalay) while they are incarcerated? If she is, how does shoe propose to fund the additional inamtes? If she is not, then she should her public media blitz where she makes it appear that her client is the innocent-law-abiding citizen which Napoles certainly is not. I have alway maintained that criminal defense are no different nor better than the crimials they represent. Just look at Kapunan (representing Napoles) and Fortun (representing the Ampatuans).
