Janet Lim-Napoles moved to her new “quarters” at dawn on Thursday and officially became the newest maximum security inmate at the Correctional Institute for Women (CIW) in Mandaluyong City.
The businesswoman, who was accused of amassing hundreds of millions of pesos from the pork barrel of several lawmakers, shares a cell with more than a hundred inmates.
The alleged pork barrel queen was transferred to the women’s facility from the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City yeterday.
CIW officer-in-charge Idilinda Patac said Napoles underwent the usual booking procedure that included the taking of her mug shot.
The Makati City Regional Trial Court Branch 150 on Tuesday found Napoles guilty of serious illegal detention and sentenced her to life imprisonment.
Napoles is facing plunder and graft charges at the Sandiganbayan.
The court also ordered her to pay P50,000 in moral damages and another P50,000 in civil damages.
Napoles and her brother Reynald Jojo Lim were accused of detaining their cousin and her former employee Benhur Luy for three months.
Lim remains at large.
