Janet Lim-Napoles will be transferred from the Makati City Jail to Fort Sto. Domingo in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
Judge Elmo Alameda of the Makati Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 150 on Friday decided on the Fort Sto. Domingo facility as Napoles’ detention quarters on the recommendation of Director Roberto Fajardo, the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group’s chief for the National Capital Region (CIDG-NCR).
Napoles’ lawyer, Lorna Kapunan, had asked the court to detain her client either in Camp Crame or at Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City.
But Fajardo said Fort Sto. Domingo was a more secure facility since it is also the training center of the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) Special Action Force (SAF).
Napoles, the central figure in the pork barrel scandal, surrendered to President Aquino 3rd in Malacañang Wednesday night.
