• Napoles wants to see Luy’s accounts


    Janet Lim-Napoles is asking the anti-graft court Sandiganbayan to direct a bank to comply with a subpoena for bank records of pork barrel scam witnesses.

    Napoles, a businesswoman who is allegedly the brains behind the scam, is facing a P183-million plunder case before the court as Sen. Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada’s co-accused.

    Earlier, the Sandiganbayan granted her request for examination of bank accounts of Benhur Luy and his mother Gertrudes and Marina Sula and Merlina Suñas.

    The United Coconut Planters Bank (UCPB) filed a manifestation in November moving to defer compliance with the subpoena pending Luy’s appeal.

    But in a counter-manifestation, Napoles pointed out that the court had already denied Luy’s motion for reconsideration in a resolution dated December 12.

    She argued that Gertrudes, Sula and Suñas did not file appeals, thus, the subpoena issued against the UCPB on their bank records “remains valid and undisturbed.”
