The multi-billion pesos corruption scandal was a Napoles family affair, documents from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) show.
The Office of the Ombudsman has charged self-confessed pork scam queen Janet Lim Napoles and two of her three children – James Christopher and Jo Christine – as co-accused in the plunder raps it filed a month ago against three senators – former Senator President Juan Ponce Enrile, former Senate President pro-tempore Jinggoy Estrada and Senator Bong Revilla.
Janet Napoles’ husband Jaime (nicknamed Jimmy) and her luxury brand and Hollywood-loving daughter Jeane Catherine were not included in the charge sheets.
However, a close examination of the financial documents filed by Napoles’ flagship company JLN Corporation show rock solid grounds for charging father and daughter, Jimmy and Jeane. In fact, for charging the entire Napoles family of being co-conspirators in the plunder cases filed against the three senators.
The Ombudsman only indicted Jo Christine and James Christopher Napoles for “working for Napoles and (because they) served as officers of her NGOs which were selected and endorsed by Senator Enrile to implement his projects.”
But they were not indicted for their role inside JLN Corporation which was one of the mechanisms used to launder the pork.
Even under the Anti-Money Laundering Law, the Napoles family can collectively be charged because this law states that “if the offender is a corporation, association, partnership or any juridical person, the penalty shall be imposed upon the responsible officers, as the case may be, who participated in the commission of the crime or who shall have knowingly permitted or failed to prevent its commission.”
One of the “unlawful activities” punished by this law is theft of public money. The penalty ranges from seven to 14 years in jail plus a fine of “not less than P3 million but not more than twice the value” of the stolen loot.
But the Ombudsman appears intent on prosecuting the senators and their co-conspirators for the more serious crime of plunder which carries a life term. For instance, in indicting Enrile, together with Janet Lim Napoles and two of her children, the Ombudsman said that “probable cause for plunder exists.”
However, Enrile – in his counter-affidavit submitted to the Ombudsman – appears willing to let Janet Lim Napoles take the rap without him. The Ombudsman quoted Enrile as saying that “it was Napoles and her cohorts ‘who persuaded and influenced the implementing agencies to violate their duties and functions’ ” without his participation.
An examination of the bank records and transactions of JLN might reveal a lot about the illicit transactions.
When the con was unraveling last year, Janet Lim Napoles started shuffling a lot of papers.
For instance, the financial documents filed by JLN to the SEC showed that something curious happened inside the JLN company that coincided with the period when Benhur Luy was detained by Napoles and her brother Reynald.
Let me explain.
In the plunder charges it filed, the Ombudsman explained that Senators Enrile, Estrada and Revilla received kickbacks from Napoles from 2004 to 2010. The source of money was the pork barrel of the three senators. In other words, our tax money. This money was allegedly diverted to bank accounts of three Napoles-held corporations: JO-CHRIS Trading, the flagship company JLN Corporation and JLCN Global Properties Development Corporation.
Last year, I wrote that from 2009 to 2011, JLN Corporation paid less in yearly taxes than a public school teacher earning P21,500 a month. For instance, in 2009, JLN reported a “gross profit” of P2.66 million. Deducting operating expenses of P2.6 million and tax, it reported retained earnings of only P508,241.74.
As of December 31, 2009, it reported a “cash on hand/(or in the) bank” of P3.5 million. A year before that, it had a “cash on hand/bank”of only P214,147.57.
The Anti-Money Money laundering Council can easily look at the cash going in and out of JLN’s corporate bank account. Do the fund flows reflect the expenses and income of the family “trading” business? Or do these indicate a serious case of money-laundering?
If the Ombudsman charge is correct, the massive fund flows in and out of JLN’s bank account will not be reflective of the modest “trading” business of the Napoles family.
If the Ombudsman charge is correct, JLN corporation and its board of directors can be held liable for massive money laundering.
Janet Lim Napoles’ “simple person” defense
Before I go on, I’d like to comment on what Janet Lim Napoles allegedly wrote in her unsigned affidavit.
She claimed that she never knew that what she was doing was illegal. On the contrary, her fraudulent transactions were “legitimate and righteous.” Janet Lim Napoles allegedly wrote:
“Honorable Ombudsman, please understand my situation. I am a simple person who wanted to earn for my family. As a person who is only a high school graduate, I then sincerely believe that what I am doing is a legitimate and righteous business.”
“Had I known that giving commission is illegal, I would have not done such thing. I was working in the premise that since I was delivering fully and in some instances more than what I should that it would even things out.”
I leave it to the reader to decide whether Janet Lim Napoles is lying or telling the truth. The modus operandi she used in the pork barrel scam was the same one she used in the earlier fertilizer scam – government money was allotted for buying fertilizer; diverted through her trading company, which either bought low quality fertilizer or made ghost deliveries; and commissions were paid to the government officials involved.
In 2006 and 2009, Janet Lim Napoles was summoned before a Senate investigation on the fertilizer scam. She managed to dodge appearing twice. It’s probably safe to presume that as early as 2006, she knew she was engaged in a fraudulent activity. You can read about this more by clicking here.
To claim that she is “only a simple person…only a high school graduate” is to insult all honest Filipinos who never went to college.
Honesty has nothing to do with educational attainment. Our most celebrated crooks are among the smartest and the most educated in the country.
The curious changes in the JLN corporate board after Benhur Luy’s detention
Let me start from the beginning.
Janet Lim Napoles incorporated JLN in 1999 along with four others:
- Her late mother Magdalena Lim Luy,
- Whistleblower Benhur Luy’s mother Gertrudes K. Luy (who has also turned whistleblower)
- Benhur’s sister Annabelle E. Luy (also a whistleblower)
- And a certain Nathaniel Tan
JLN’s capital stock was P5 million divided into 50,000 shares with a par value of P100 per share. Each incorporator subscribed to 2,500 shares worth P250,000 each. And each paid up P62,500.
JLN told SEC its primary purpose was the “business of trading of goods such as marine supplies, and equipment, construction materials etc.”
This corporate profile only changed after Janet’s mother Magdalena Lim Luy died on February 28, 2008.
The following year 2009, JLN filed a General Information Sheet (GIS) with the SEC showing three new corporate owners. Besides Janet Lim Napoles and Annabelle Luy , the rest of the shares were now owned by her two daughters Jo Christine and Jeane Catherine and her only son James Christopher. All three also sat in the corporate board.
In 2010, JLN filed another GIS with the SEC showing for the first time the entry of Janet Lim Napoles’ husband Jimmy into the corporate board. Jimmy Napoles assumed the chairmanship while Janet became the President. Jo Christine and James Christopher remained Treasurer and Secretary, respectively. While the fun-loving Jeane Catherine sat on the board without added responsibilities. By 2010, Janet and Jimmy owned 25% each of JLN; Jo Christine, James Christopher and Jeane Catherine, 15% each; and Benhur Luy’s sister Annabelle, 5%.
Recall that the Ombudsman charge sheets claimed that tax money was laundered through JLN Corporation from the years 2004 to 2010. Can the chairman of the board plead ignorance when the president of the board has already confessed to doing it? And what about the other board members?
Now here is where it gets very interesting and curious.
Recall that Benhur Luy was reportedly held against his will after a confrontation with Janet Lim Napoles on December 19, 2012. [NOTE: You can read about this through an eyewitness account of Merlina Sunas by clicking here.]
Through the efforts of his parents and his sister Annabelle, Benhur Luy was rescued by operatives of the National Bureau of Investigation on March 22, 2013. His family told authorities he knew a lot about the fertilizer fund scam.
Curiously, JLN Corporation submitted a GIS to the SEC on March 27, 2013 – or five days after Benhur Luy’s rescue by the NBI from Janet Lim Napoles’ control.
This new GIS dropped Benhur Luy’s sister Annabelle from the JLN board for the first time since JLN was incorporated. Annabelle was replaced by Janet Lim Napoles’ brother Jose Emmanuel Lim. Months later, Annabelle Luy would testify in court that Janet Lim Napoles and her brother Reynald illegally detained Benhur in order to pressure him into owning up to making pork deals with lawmakers behind Janet’s back.
As the news media started picking up Benhur Luy’s story, JLN Corporation suddenly filed an “amendment” at the SEC on May 15, 2013. The amended GIS retained Jaime Napoles as chairman but removed Janet, their children and Janet’s brother Jose Emmanuel Lim from the JLN board. The JLN board was reconstituted with the following directors:
- Jaime Napoles – chairman
- Filemon S Agustin – president
- Andres B. Atan – CFO
- Cheryl Jimenea
- Peter Lavin
- Anthony Dequina
However, on August 8, 2013 after the Philippine Daily Inquirer splashed Benhur Luy’s story on its front page, JLN Corporation again submitted a GIS to the SEC. The JLN Corporation no longer had Filemon Agustin, Andres Atan, Cheryl Jimenea, Peter Lavin and Anthony Dequina in the corporate board. The board had reverted control back to Janet and Jimmy Napoles, their three children Jo Christine, Jeane Catherine and James Christopher, together with Janet’s brother Jose Emmanuel.
It would be interesting for the Ombudsman to question Agustin, Atan, Jimenea, Lavin and Dequina about their sudden appointment and removal from JLN.
Did it have something to do with the public disclosure of the pork barrel scam?
In any case, JLN’s corporate records show that Napoles’ husband and three children can be charged for money laundering.

…the Ombudsman Office which is the proper office to ‘handle’ this HIT LIST with the Affidavit of Janet N., for all legal purposes or worth, may not swallow Hook-Line and Sinker this new revelation.
…Of course, this new thing of Janet is ‘ABOUT THE PAST’ of public officials, lawmakers and Executives. So, one cannot say ‘He or She is presently doing a good job’…etc. It is about THEIR PAST, their HISTORY.
…Only credible proof will tell all. At the same time the AFFIDAVIT & HIT LIST is extremely also SUSPECT under the surrounding circumstances: from an another suspect/accused; time element; motive or reason(s) for it, atbpa. SUSPECT is the word.
…The BenHur Luy HD etc. is still the ‘bases’ that the Ombudsman Office will adapt for prosecution purposes.
…Of course, the people know that many in the gov’t are corrupt: Corrupt in the PAST and CORRUPT in the present!
People must AWAKEN to this sick culture of ours in the government. We are sick. Gov’t is sick. Many are already sick with all this in our corruption. Do what we can do. Our best at that.
Haaayyyyy…to repeat @macspeed’s sigh.
Link of SUSPECT hit list etc.
Btw…PALACE should NOT BE DEFENDING their people…LET THEM DEFEND THEMSELVES as the allegations are PARTICULARIZED against INDIVIDUAL OFFICIALS and not generalized against the PNOY Adm.
LEONA, you know those stinky politicians involved come and go inside Napoles’ suite demanding her to have their names erased. Why is this being allowed by the medical staff knowing it be detrimental to the patient’s well-being? Baka may desperate na maghara-kiri diyan sa loob ng hospital , madamay pa yung mga inosente. While this is going on, it is heating up in the west sea, pinalubog na ng CHINA ang fishing boat ng VIETNAM,,, OH MY….PH MY PH.
…’cause the security at Janet’s hospital cell is not lax but OPEN for all…just like tell all!

Question to all CPMers and lawyers. In Philippines is there such a law that will make Napoles affidavits invalid if she is taking medications that alters her mood, consciousness? Remember JLN have undergone a hysterectomy and i’m assuming her physicians prescribed her pain meds before and after the surgery (PRN or as needed).
Ang aking agam-agam is baka mag retract bigla si JLN sa kadahilanang she was not alert or in a proper consciousness when she wrote those affidavits due to medications side effects.
Yung naunang napabalita na kasama si JV Ejercito then she retracted after a few days.
there is something in health law that stops the exploitation of those on mind altering medications. it’s in hospital charters. the variation is slight but it can differ from hospital to hospital.
martial, I was one of those that said de lima should have waited until napoles was out of hospital and on the road to recovery before pushing on with the list. and maybe return the list and ask napoles to make a better and more comprehensive one with all the evidences attached.
to think that de lima went to see napoles sa ospital alas dos sa madaling araw a day before the operation took place – did not sit well to me. mukhang coercive si de lima, opportunist. if napoles’ lawyer was there at the time, he/she should have stopped the meeting. anyone could say napoles was defenceless at the time, she was on pre-op and maybe sleepy and groggy, given doses of medication, being prepared for the operation that was to take place, and not in good state of mind.
@martial …yes…THE OATH to tell the truth the whole truth nothing but the truth…

@ Marcial B.,
Tama ka Marcial, Bakit pa natin paniniwalaan ang babaeng Manloloko, Balasubas, Sinungaling, Mandarambong kagaya ni janet lim napoles na noon pa man ay nagsinungaling na sa blue ribbon committee na wala siyang alam tungkol sa Pdaf Scam? saka binago ang sinabi tungkol kay JB estrada etc.?
Naalala kopa noon para kumita nang malaki itong si janet lim napoles kasama mga kakutsabang kurrapt na opisyal sa bidding ay fake kevlar helmet ang ipina deliver sa mga marines/sundalo natin kaya ang daming namatay tuwing may kasagupa dahil tumatagos ang bala sa fake helmet? Bakit nakaya nilang dayain kahit pangprotection sana nang ating mga sundalo…Mukhang Pera talaga mga suwapang at Mandaraya pa..
I did this on the sligh, baka ma-block na naman ako for talking about napoles’ medical condition.
here goes: prn medication for pain? to be given only when needed, medication on standby and may not be needed at all. napoles is not like anyone that normally feels pain. she is diabetic and possibly has higher tolerance to pain. what is painful to many of us may not be painful to her. diabetes destroys nerve endings making a diabetic person not prone or less prone to pain. but knowing napoles, she could easily take advantage of her situation and pretend to be in so much pain that she has to be hospitalized and given medical care.
to test for pain thresh hold, doctors usually do neurological test. they either hampas napoles with a feather or prick her skin with a sharp needle when she’s not looking. she ought to react to both. if no needle reaction is ellicited – that could mean she has high tolerance to pain. physical pain that is.
mainit daw sabi niya. that’s understandable dahil she is menopausal, and no air conditioning can cure that. she will have “hot flushes” o feeling of being hot on her upper torso particularly around the face and the nape of the neck. the symptom may persists for several years. she will also experienced sweating late at night and together with hot flushes, she will be uncomfortable for a while. unless she takes hormore replacement therapy.
in summary, her feelings of pain can be dubious.
thank the god of cyberspace, nakalusot ako!
sisingit na naman ako: martial at 37, prn – pro re nata – we give prn medication to babies too. but only when needed. when they are teething or have fever, we give them dose of baby panadol o paracetamol. if coughing, we give them benadryl o decongestant. we take prn medication too, by taking aspirin if we have headache, sudafed for sniffles and blocked nose, also gaviscon if we have heartburn, stomach upset o kaya, indigestion. even band aid put on superficial wound o sugat na hindi malubha can be considered prn medication as well.
if napoles is on prn medication that could mean she is well and needs medication only occassionally.
…Janet answers @moonie: …”na por nada ako! pna. Now, I’m back to Sta. Messeria sa Laguna!
…why nobody believes my listahan! Senate did not crush down. I’m crying. Did I get a bad legal advice?
…making make-believes kuno? I think my real un-wellness is in my head! ”
She asks the judge: Sir…can I go back to Osmak?
Judge: Don’t put up more excuses. Wait ’til next April and May summer heat! Walang palusot!
doktor: madam, dont waste your tears. bottle them tears in perplex bote at ipagbili mo sa quiapo. napoles tears, blessed by ex-mosinyor ramirez. 25 pesos per bottle. in case you come up with anymore trumped up diseases, may pambayad ka.
another doktor: donya, heto, commode, take this with you when you back to laguna. know how to use this thing?
napoles: use it like a neckbrace?
doktor: you idiot or what?
another doktor: atty bruce rivera can demonstrate. he’s obliging and has a well rounded butt, at laging nakangiti. kinatutuwa yata na you’re depressed, madam. palaging happy ang taong yan. goodbye, madam, by the way, your uterus and 2 ovaries that were removed were fed to our resident cats, jimmy and jings.
Kelan pa aarestuhin sila tan, pogi n seksi? Diba they only have a limited time to reply to the charges, bakit Wala pang nangyayari? Talakayin naman natin.
…listening to Atty. Bruce Rivera at DZMM interview by Karen Davila…he says Janet is not the mastermind.
…even if she is ‘a common-thief-denominator’ with 100 congressmen and 18 senators!
…he says ‘for every TRANSACTION Janet had with 100 congressmen, EACH CONGRESSMAN is the mastermind’
…for every senator too, EACH SENATOR is the mastermind’
hahaha…GALING MO Attorney!
In short, acc to Janet and her attorney, there are 118 MASTERMINDS! HAHAHA
So, why did she not say so when she first appeared at the SENATE on that? Saying: YOU ARE ALL MASTERMINDS.
Her HIT LIST and AFFIDAVIT must probably start like this:
…”I swear under oath that I will tell all that all the MASTERMINDS are LAWMAKERS, as follows, to wit:
Una…Mastermind si Tanda!
Dos…Mastermind si Pogi! Sa Tres…si Sexy ay Mastermind.
Cuatro…si Abad Mastermind also.
…and so on down the list…
So, Janet is only ASSISTANT to each of the 118 masterminds, is that it? Atty.? Janet?
I think if Janet is Pontuisa Pilata, she would peel off her skins washing her guilt…Wala akong alam sa PDAF!
…incredible theory! Terrible defense! For the waste basket ito Attorney!
btw…tapos na ang Affidavit & HIT LIST…now her doctors reported in the news papers, her bleeding HAS STOPPED!
…she is ready to be DISCHARGED [again]!
…but she prefers doon la muna sa OSMAk.
…masterminded by whom – her doctors or by Janet or by ???
hindi raw siya mastermind, palagay koy tama si atty bruce rivera dahil si napoles ay ang siyang supreme mastermind, the ultimate maestro, the chairman of the board composed of senator masterminds. napoles started as humble pupil, but she was quick study and fast learner, in no time, eclipsed those that teach her the tricks of the trade. she has become ultra powerful that banks dealt mainly with her and not with those on her list. she even lifted names off the phone book, the names of those who passed board exams published in newspapers did not escape her attention. she made them recipient of millions if not thousands of pesos without them knowing it. she created fake ngos, not the senators, and for years, she maintained their facades. jolly, jolly, gosh, napoles is the supreme mastermind, the top of the food chain.
Martial Bonifacio says
Let’s take a break and show our compassion to Janet Lim Napoles she is in severe pain after all.
If what I read is true, the post bleeding may be due to a sexual activity, hmmm. We are not privy what goes in the bedroom, even in a hospital bedroom but it can be done, heheheh. Now that she seems to be a celebrity of her own , sorry to say that even these romp in the beds could make headlines, in her case could be a blessing than lying in a hard old bed in LAGUNA private jail. She is still luckier than the rest of Pinoys who sleeps on newspapers and cartons on the streets or under the bridge wherein the religious folks, may say , we are also children of god, but this is not right…RIGHT!!
Some 3-6 hours are crucial after gynecologic surgery to observe some complications, like giving birth vaginally anything beyond minor pain and discomfort signals an impending complication. But days or weeks after a clean bill of health was announced is already a questionable strategy or an after effect of those forbidden/restricted activity.
See this, (Web)
Activity after gynecologic surgery:
Can I have sex? Can I use tampons? — After most types of gynecologic surgery, you should not put anything in your vagina until the tissues are completely healed. Otherwise, you may develop an infection or interfere with healing. This includes tampons, douches, fingers, and all types of sexual activity that involve the vagina.
These activities should be avoided for two to ….six weeks after surgery. ….your healthcare provider when you can resume these activities.
When can I return to work? — You may
And so she returns to LAGUNA., ;)

Ito nga ang ipinagtataka ko kong BAKIT ang daling naniwala sa sinabi nang isang Mandarambong, Sinungaling at Manloloko na si janet lim napoles at NALOKO/MAUTO ang mga doctors at maging ang judge ay NAUTO/NALOKO rin? Magkano kaya pinagCASHusunduan…
we only have her doctor’s word. doctor could be lying. napoles is diabetic. that could mean her nerve endings are blunted and could not transmit pain. kaya yong ibang may diabetes have their foot amputated, pinutol dahil nagkaruon ng gangrene. the foot might have been twisted for a long time and has no blood circulation, and yet the person felt no pain or discomfort because diabetes has numbed nerve endings. kahit kinain ng aso yong paa, pain would still not be felt.
I’d believe napoles is bleeding if the blood is tested and proven to be her own blood type and have her dna profile. that blood could have come from other sources, donated by others, not necessarily napoles’ own blood. those that visited her ought to be checked: they may have been carrying vials of blood or blood pack bought from the red cross.
usually a normal healthy woman has 4-6 liters of blood in her system. if napoles has indeed been bleeding that much, she would have been give blood transfusion to recoup what she has lost. it takes around a month for the body to make more blood in a process called hematopoesis. in the meantime, napoles would have been hypovolemic, low on blood volume. her heart must have been beating like crazy, compensating for the loss, hard pressed to push blood to her extremeties and trying to keep up with circulation when there is less to be circulated. keep that up and the heart would go into overload. adieu.
dati ayaw ni napoles bumalik sa kulungan dahil mainit daw. sabi ng judge she has to go back, kaya ito gumawa yata ng paraan upang manatili sa ospital.
hindi raw pweding mag-sex si napoles dahil labas-pasok daw yong medical staff at may mga gwardiya pa. I think it’s silly for them to think napoles needs partner to have sex. she could have done it herself in the bathroom when no one was looking and with her long fingernails, scratched and scratched at her own gg hangang dumugo. even if she used razor blade, she would have felt no pain as her peripheral nerve endings might have been damaged by diabetes.
I bet doctors have already given her neurological test to see if her peripheral nerves are working or not. if her nerves are already damaged by diabetes and no longer working, she would feel no pain even if she walks on broken glass, o kaya, on hot live coals. she would sustain injury though and would need treatment.
I think napoles sabotaged her own recovery.
@moonie…at the FIRST Senate appearance of Janet N., she said “I don’t know anything about the PDAF’ scam.
…Now, she has about to submit her HIT LIST and AFFIDAVIT involving more names of lawmakers et.al. than what she denied knowing anything.
…If she appears AGAIN at the Senate isn’t she LIABLE for contempt by the Senate? Will any senator move for her contempt? Or all or any will FORGET about such move but try to get scatch free from the HIT LIST and Affidavit?
…the lawmakers et. al. are getting into A CROSS-WINDS [ the iZuzu Ad] …!
…even Sen. P. Cayetano is already showing signs of this cross-winds –
… “Cayetano on Sunday cautioned the government against entering into a deal with Napoles, who has expressed her desire to be granted immunity in exchange for turning state witness.”
… ““If it’s true that there’s some sort of immunity that might be given to her family, the agreement should be that if she tells a lie or she doesn’t tell the whole truth, the whole deal is off,” he said.
But WHO will finally determine the TRUTH or the LIE?
… the Senator said ““I am 100 percent against any deal with Napoles or her family, especially since the government keeps saying it already has an airtight case,” he told the Inquirer.”
Cross-winds! In short, when one cannot get what is wanted, just MESS it up!
…the thing is lawmakers even wants a RIGHT OF REPLY
Why should they have such a right of reply when the courts of law are there already for them to answer any and all charges?
Ordinary citizens DO HAVE SUCH A RIGHT OF REPLY on such matters! Lawmakers should have it? This is ignoble! Unwarranted! An abuse of looking and creating ‘rights’ not due.
Just pass that FOI bill! Forget replying. As public officers their SKINS are sensitive for criticisms by the people.
and they already have privelege speeches at the senate. not enough yata. I’m surprised lawmakers asked to be given right of reply instead of just going ahead and doing it. they never asked permission before with all that insertions and such. aba, things are changing.
now you made your reply @moonie…and you are exactly right! Why don’t they just go ahead and REPLY at every corners and nooks?
Galing mo @moonie…maybe put CCTV up inside the bathroom too! Trim her fingers’ nails too!
From @martial’s link…in the photo what she’s holding seems to me a black pentil pen…to blacken names of who? I still believe she’s bent on finishing that HIT LIST and her Affidavit for one last try [maybe] for her LAST CHANCE to HIT ‘EM ALL!
In the photo again, no signs of any blood transfusions, her arms shows no plasters for blood transfusions needle-marks [normally done] if she indeed had much bleeding soaking all her pants and surface of her bed.
Let her rest! Soon she’ll be back to Sta. Rosa anyway.
leona, nawala ang reply ko. I’ll wait a day or two, if my reply will not surface, I’ll repost.
…are U also exercising your right to reply? hahaha
tried to repost my lost reply just now. I got blocked! lost it again!
someone does not want me to reply.
okay, I got it, someone does not want me to talk about napoles’ stay in osmak.

Tama po kayo, dagdag sabotahe/Gulo nalang ginagawa nang sinungaling at mandarambong na si janet lim napoles. Gulo nalang hinahanap nito dahil buking na buking na? ewan ko ba kong bakit naniniwala pa mga doctors dito at maging ang judge ay parang naniniwala din at5 hindi na pinaimbestigahan ang sinasabi nito? Kung mayaman ka talaga ay iba ang hatol at sitwasyon laging pabor sa iyo kasi malamang nababayaran mga kinauukulan dapat magpatupad nang patas na hatol…
Sinabi na ni janet lim napoles sa senate blue ribbon committee na wala siyang alam sa Pdaf Scam at under oath yon tapos kapag nakapaglabas nang bagong affidavit daw ay paiimbestigahan bakit tayo makikinig sa isang mandaraya, mandarambong at sinungaling…
If l were a marine soldier/s ay matagal ko nang nilapa itong si janet dahil marami ang namatay sa ingkuwentro dahil fake Kevlar Helmet pala pinamigay nito sa mga marines at maging ang mga opisyales nang mga ito ay isasama kona sa lalapain dahil maliwanag na nakipagkutsaba mga ito para makapagkamal nang PERA…At dahil sa pinawalang Sala/nagkabayaran/nagkaayusan mga judges noon ay itong si janet ay mas lumaki ninakaw nito sa kaban nang bayan ngayon??? Isipin natin rason nitong si janet na hindi nito alam na bawal ang manuhol? Stupid…
he, he, jorge, ngayong balik na si napoles sa kulungan niya sa laguna, next time sisipot siya sa senado to answer questions about her never ending list na pahaba ng pahaba ng pahaba, she will be bringing her commode with her. sabi ng lawyer niyang si atty bruce rivera kailangan daw ni napoles mag-commode in order to answer the call of nature. baga duguin na naman siya.
gloria arroyo has neck brace, janet napoles has commode.
Let her rest. Let’s tangle to Cardinal Tagle’s comments on Mongs. Ramirez –
…”Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle said Friday that former Quiapo Church rector Msgr. Josefino “Monsi” Ramirez did nothing wrong when he accepted donations from Janet Lim-Napoles, the alleged brains behind the P10-billion pork barrel scam.”
Did nothing wrong…”Speaking in separate interviews on Church-run Radio Veritas, Ongtioco and Bacani said they believed Ramirez accepted donations from Napoles “in good faith.”
Why did the State through Congress enact the Anti-Fencing Law? This law punishes anyone who ‘fences’ illegal items such as stolen, items robbed etc.
‘Good faith’…means one has to check beforehand before availing the defense of good faith. Failure to do so is bad faith.
Like buying a house and lot…buyer is obligated to check the ‘title’ of the property; inspect the house if an occupant is occupying it etc. Buyer cannot claim good faith when there is a lessee on that property who has a 10-year contract of Lease. It must be honored by the buyer.
Buy and Sell in second-hand items like car engines. Proprietor is obligated to check/verify that the item is not stolen etc.
Money…given in or for whatever purpose, Charity or otherwise…to priests atbpa…if illegal could have been known to recipient priest HAD IT BEEN CHECKED or verified. Not to do this…is bad faith and not good faith.
Other people have to follow the laws. Why not Church officials? What reason or reasons could they be excused from the laws applied to one and all – everybody?
Now, the Cardinal Tagle confirms this by his statement: “Tagle said, however, that the controversial donation should serve as an “eye-opener” for other priests, who should now be careful in accepting donations to their charities or ministries.”
Eye-opener…be careful…in accepting donations! The laws were there long time ago. For these some Church officials, it is or was CLOSE YOUR EYES…do not open them!
If the P2.5M in cash was LEFT at the door steps of Quiapo Church once morning, who will the Monsg. asked? But it was not. It was delivered, probably by Manager’s Check.
Good faith. Did nothing wrong. Not true. Never. There is a duty. An obligation for everyone to ASK…is this okay, legal and not illegal etc.
I deny … the Church’s explanations.

In good faith ba @atty he he …amend our Constitution and let the Church and other Religious Sects be TAXED kahit minimal man lang…. They can no longer be exempted in any thing … DELIBERATE ang pagtanggap nya ng PERA…
jorge bernas says
I remembered the S.U.V. Scandal noon na ibinigay daw ni GMA pero ang isang Obispo ay humingi nang pa birthday gift na SUV at may dagdag na cold cash pa na mahigit 100,000.- pa yata. isinauli ang SUV pero ang cash ay hindi…
Sana aminin nalang nila na MALI ang ginawa ni ramirez at huwag pagtakpan tulad nag ibang mga maling nagawa, at makinig sa sinabi ni Pope Francis na huwag mamuhay nang matiwasay bagkus ay magpakumbaba? Amen….
…@jorge…there are so many naive and fickle-minded among our people, rich and poor…they think no bishops and priest commits wrong things…specially when it comes to MONEY!
“Father, the money I donated to YOU is stolen from the government’!
‘Ano yun?…paki ulit.”
‘PDAF yun Father! Sabit ka!’
‘Bless the Lord! That’s God’s Money anyway!’
For your penance, GIVE ME MORE OF IT!’ hahaha
Masyadong malalim na salita dahil pwede bigyan ng malawak na pakahulugan ayun sa kagustuhan.
Sabi ng mga naka-abito…. tatanggapin daw ang pera dahil sa “Good faith” sa akin pananaw ay pwede siguro kung sa umpisa ay hindi mo alam kung san nga galing ito.
Pero sana sa oras na malaman mo na galing ito sa masama (pagnanakaw, pangaagaw, at pangloloko) dapat ay hindi na tinaggap. Ano ang ibig sabihin na kahit na magnakaw, mangagaw o mangloko, basta meron % ng halaga ay ibigay sa mga naka-abito ay ok lang? Eh di pwede pa la sabihin ng masamang tao na ituloy ko ang kasamaan ko kasi nakakatulong naman ako sa simbahan?
At ang mga naka-abito ay tanggap lang ng tanggap dahil sabihin naman nila na napupunta sa mahihirap (lang kaya? lalo na kung libo-libo o daang libo) ang binigay sa kanila?
Ibig sabihin mabuti pa ang ginawa nila? Naging “instrumento” sila para makatulong s iba? Sus, ano naman katwiran yan?
Habang tanggap ng tanggap ay kinukunsinti ang masamang gawa… Di ba nila naiisip yun? O mas gusto nila ang maraming natutulungan na mahihirap, na napakagandang gawain SANA kung di galing sa masama ang itinutulong.
Kainis na katwiran yan!!!!!
Ganyan na ba ang tinuturo sa simbahan ngayon (o gawing halimbawa o pinapayagan?)
…to receive or accept is like selling one’s VOTE! No questions asked!
…if recipient is a SQUATTER I don’t blame the latter! But if a MONSIGNOR of Quiapo Church or a LAWMAKER…greater responsibility TO ASK/VERIFY!
…of course, GREATER LIABILITY!
Arch. Villegas is ‘creating’ “Mr. Conversion” in his mind, to act on those at fault and admit wrongdoings. CBCP said that those ‘who profited return their LOOT”…including Mongs. RAMIREZ of the Quiapo Church?
Yes, many sees the light beyond this crisis but not the CULPRITS! People are involved in politics. But why more religious officials are also too much involved in donations of stolen money?
Guess what – pag PERA no God!
…Plus, also the NUNS got something from Janet N. I ‘tol U when money is at HAND *&^%$!
separation of Church & State …kuno!
Money must also be returned by the CHURCH…it is just right and moral. Will COA made any demands to have the much MONEY returned by the Church?
dapat in good faith isauli nila ang perang natanggap nila mula kay napoles. and in good faith sabihin nila kung hindi pwedeng isauli dahil magasto na yong pera. pakisabi naman in good faith and inform the taumbayan kung saan-saan nagasto yong pera whether sa sugal, sa ibang bisyo, o sa parokya napunta yon.
nagpakain daw sila sa mga pulubi, e iilan lang ba ang mga pulubing pinakain nila? bear in mind na maraming charitable organizations ay nagdonate ng pagkain sa church pang-distribute daw yon sa mga mahihirap. tapos the priests make it appear the donation came from napoles mismo and not from charitable organizations. the money used to by expensive cars, dahil bisyo yan ng mga pari na mamili ng mamahalin na sasakyan, vain din sila.
ano kaya ang bisyo ng mga madre? expensive furniture sa dweling nila, curtains, o mamahaling sasakyan din kaya gaya ng mga pari?
when time comes for these priests and nuns to show good faith and tell the taumbayan what they had done with the money, tahimik sila. walang good faith.
…tax ’em! Or box-in ’em!
…we are all just naive…giving exemptions to religious and other similar orgns…should never be done.
…even Jesus Christ paid His census tax! Where did He get the money to pay the tax?
martial, pakihabol lang po it:
I have a good look at the link you gave at 35 just now. can you see a smoking gun? did you have a real good look at what napoles is holding? it looked like a vial of blood to me. sample of specimen sent to medical laboratories for testing. it had better be stoppered or she might spill the contents on herself. and she is holding it firmly like a prized possession. medical staff are not supposed to give it to her, but sent it away for testing.
the sight give me an “aha!” moment. not long after the picture was taken, wasn’t napoles reported to be spotting again, that she was bleeding yet again?
AHA, moonie, “spot on” , remember the assassin who accidentally photographed himself while doing the killing sometime last year? I also think it’s a full vial of blood for testing…. of the hocus-pocus. and the bloody game continues.
yes, netty, picture dont lie. I have mentioned you in my reply to leona at 220.127.116.11, pero nawala ang reply kong iyon. I’ll wait a day or two, if my reply will not come up, I’ll repost. cheers.
netty, tried reposting my reply today, but I got blocked again! somebody does not want me to repost my reply.
A priest receives ‘a donation’ not asking the source of the money.
A lawmaker receives also, is it ‘a donation’, not asking the source of the money?
The ‘donation’ is for ‘Charity’ purposes. Applicable to both above?
I read from a blog somewhere, not here, that Benhur Luy’s HD copy, since ‘owned’ by the Janet Napoles’ Corporation, without the consent of it’s owner, is illegal. It’s contents are likewise also illegal. The contents refers to scamming data, also illegal.
The HD then is for all intents is a stolen item. Being stolen it cannot be used as evidence: against Janet N. and third parties etc.
Has Janet N. questioned and argued this issue in her Counter-Affidavit before the DOJ and Ombudsman as inadmissible evidence?
If, just IF, considered as really stolen from it’s owner, is it a FRUIT OF A POISONOUS TREE…a categrory of an inadmissible evidence before the courts of law? Maybe YES, if done by a law enforcenment agent. How about if done by a private person?
Good question indeed.
link on DONATIONS http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/604698/retired-priest-ramirez-got-napoles-donations-in-utmost-good-faith
must have been payment for services rendered with ramirez in the pulpit howling to the high heavens that napoles is exemplary and indeed of good moral character. being priest, his credibility assured, ramirez must have reached greater and wider audience, his weekly sermons going far and near. fake sheepherd trying to kill the lamb of god.
‘Janet!’ …you are back to jail!
His Honor Judge Alameda slammed the bandit’s lawyers pretext that Janet still need time to finish her HIT LIST aith Affidavit…BAM! This case is illegal detention not Pork detention…NO!
Now, probably that HIT LIST and Affi will never come out in that so hot cell in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
My room…Judge…is also so hot. Many Judges all over the country does not even have the Inverter-type Air Con or an old one is good condition. So, why should Janet have a cool room there? %&^%$#!
I like to hug this Judge. Let’s hope at the Sandiganbayan we can also hug the Justices.
Hug the Judge link http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/nation/05/20/14/court-orders-pnp-return-napoles-fort-sto-domingo
give napoles pamaypay o abaniko, then teach her how to use it. or she can forego wearing clothes and go nude, that should cool her down. but if she really needs to be cold, put her in the freezer.

No, Baliktad ang nangyari leona, Hindi pa man nadala/naibalik ang Mandarambong/sinungaling na si janet lim napoles sa Sta.Rosa, Laguna ay pinayagan nang manatili sa Ospital at ang nakapagtataka/nakakaduda dahil maging ang mga doctors sa nasabing Ospital ay naniwala rin kahit hindi pa naexamine kon totoo o hindi ang alibay ni janet at dapat magpadala nang gov’nt doctors na magsusuri dahil wala akong tiwala sa sinungaling at mandarambong na si janet lim napoles. Magkano kaya napagkasunduan at mabilis ang pagbibigay pabor sa taksil…Huwag natin kalimutan na maraming mga marines/sundalo ang namatay dahil fake at mumurahin ang KEVLAR HELMET na ipinamahagi gayong dapat ay bullet proof ang gagamitin nang mga marines/sundalo..Mandarambong, sinungaling at manloloko pa pala itong si janet?
Ibalik na sa Sta.Rosa, Laguna at nang magdusa?
sabi ng doktor ni napoles she is shedding blood na naman daw at dapat mantili ng medyo matagalan sa ospital. maybe pig’s blood yan at hindi human blood. napoles is scam queen and capable of doing anything, bribing doctors included.
who knows? the blood might have come from a pack destined for someone’s blood transfusion, tapos, doctors slit the pack and doused the blood sa underwear ni napoles and made it appear na dinudugo na naman siya. I will only believe na dugo talaga ni napoles yan if the blood has been tested and proven to be that of napoles, same type and dna profile. not blood gotten from somewhere. or donated by someone.
jorge bernas says
Naniwala naman kaagad mga doctors at maging ang judge, BAKIT? Nakakaduda na ito? MAGKANO KAYA napagCASHunduan… alamin muna kong ano ang TOTOO judge/doctors?
Alalahanin natin NAPAKASINUNGALING, MANDARAYA, MANDARAMBONG itong si janet lim napoles??
…so she cannot be back…still having ‘urges’ acc to her doctor –
“MANILA, Philippines—The physician of alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles told the Makati City Regional Trial Court during a hearing that aside from stress, “private, intimate contact” may have also caused the bleeding.
Dr. Efren Domingo, in his testimony, said “our patient is human, she has her urges.”
The prosecution asked if there was a possibility of sexual contact but Domingo said he did not ask her.”
Why ‘o Why the prosec did not go further to ask: Why did you not ask her on that? My dear old friend doc once said –
…even a ‘man’ with late stages of TB lying on bed can still do it…sexual urges and impregnate a suitable woman. I ask the doc – why is that? ‘Cause anyone always lying on bed keeps on thinking of it…hehehe
Lying on bed story…

“Napoles is not the guiltiest party here, even if she was probably the one who got the most money out of it. The lawmakers are, the public officials are. Napoles is only guilty of grand larceny, the public officials are guilty of high treason. Napoles is guilty only of thieving and looting, the public officials are guilty of betraying the public trust. Napoles is guilty only of lifting other people’s wallets on the streets, the public officials are guilty of carousing with money left behind by an impoverished relative for his son’s tuition.”

But I maintain my position together with Mang Bernie and his cohorts that it should be firing squad on lawmakers and government officials for high treason. And lethal injection on Napoles for grand larceny.
agree, rene-ipil. may I say televized the whole proceedings as well? people need to see the scammers were indeed sent off to the next life, not their kalookalikes.
I disagree with CDQ that napoles is not the guiltiest of them all. It was the evil napoles who dangled wads of cash to lawmakers who succumbed to the glitters of gold – like like the fabled Eve and the sweetness of an apple.
All of them must be prosecuted to the hilt as plunderers of hard- earned taxpayers’ money and incarcerated into ordinary jails for life without possibility of parole.

Pakitingnan nga kong nasa listahan din itong si Conrado de Quiros… Parang PR ni janet ito kong magsalita?
…and bring ‘those carcasses’ of dead public officials and Janet to MANG TOMAS at La Loma…for broiling, then
…give the ‘lechons’ to living PORKS…Porks Eats Porks!
Again, I agree with you, @Rene.
In USA there is now a shortage of drugs for lethal injection so that US lawmakers propose to return to firing squad for execution of condemned criminals.
I am sure that the same drugs for lethal injection are also not available locally. So, sorry na lang si Napoles, firing squad is the only option. But as a humane treatment for Napoles as suggested by Mang Bernie, I propose ten (10) riflemen to execute lawmakers and government officials, and five (5) riflemen on Napoles.
The public will be curious to see changes very soon…
…”It was possible, he said, that the building was being prepared for Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. and Jinggoy Estrada in case the Sandiganbayan order their arrest.”
The voting there is different…who’s the team leader.
…”detention cells each measuring about 10 square meters” – a detainee lawmaker can walk 10 square kilometers a day.
Cells are designed to allow guards to check each detainee-lawmaker what’s he/she is doing inside the toilet. Praying for liberty? Put barbed wires on the edges of each toilet bowls! Half-covered toilets…what does this mean? …half for above or half for below?
Can each have the option for a full revealing scene?
Can all lawmaker-detainees hold regular senate sessions as they re presumed innocent until then?
Will they still receive senate salaries inside the jail bird cell? For what use is it anyway?
Curious changes indeed coming!
What’s the life time of ‘a bird inside a cage’?
Enrile: “OK lang maski sino ang cell mate ko. Pwede naman Abu Sayyaf.”
Jinggoy blasts selective justice and saying this administration is “hell-bent” on jailing the three indicted senators.”
Revilla to family “huwag kayo iiyak.” (ABS-CBN 5/20/14, 5:20pm)
@kalahari…si Gigi cell mate nya! Gusto aku sarraf! Bawal ang bisagra drug so loob!
…sa Crame lang kayo jinggoy
…suot mo brown supot sa ulo pag umiyak ka bong
Nice one Leona
that’s jinggoy’s fault nahuli siya sa dragnet ng selective justice. had he not been scamming with napoles for years and amassed himself wealth beyond measures, building mansion in wackwack costing 120millions that will be of no use to him for he will be living in jail – he would not have been caught in the dragnet. weak kasi siya, greedy pa, cannot say no to easy millions, stolen millions. hundreds of millions.
I look forward to seeing jinggoy, enrile and revilla given selective justice worthy of lawmakers gone utterly, utterly bad. with their feet in balls and chain, not just handcuffed.
mali na naman si bong revilla. this man cannot get anything right. as padre de pamilya bong gives bad advice. best advice he could give to his family is for them to return to the nation all that was stolen. make ammends. they can cry to the high heavens later. they have to give back what was not theirs. and if bong needs to go to jail, he ought to accept that. he has been to holy land for bakasyon. he must have known that christ himself accepted punishment and went to jail.
I am not stretched out…at his 90 age who needs to be stretched out!
Why is daddy in jail…Mommy: ’cause he always cried to Janet to get the money
I sleep 9 hours; exercise every morning; eat my breakfast; wake up at 9 o’clock; and sound asleep at night – Yea, that’s what you are only supposed to do in jail.
I don’t think much about being detained and where – Yea, what else can you do to think about in detention?
I am confident ‘we’ [ not “I” ] will this case – Why [he was asked] – I don’t know [ his answer ]
As a lawyer, study your case in summa total – He isn’t going to defend himself for a fool at that.
I will not be choosy who my cell mate(s) will be – He thinks he can chose on that.
Pwede naman abu sayyaf ang cell mate ko – of course not a rapist!
Ano lahat ang above nito? My Mea Corrupt pa!
I am ready to fight it out even in Hell – Really?
My only recourse is to slug it out – Where? Is there a base ball field in Hell?
I have long accepted my faith [ or FATE? ] – Which ‘F’?
Why ‘are’ they advanced in thinking we will be arrested when the court has not yet said so? – Pamunta na yun doon Bong.
I told my family members not to cry – They won’t but you will daddy ‘O!
I prepared my family that I will be arrested soon – Yes, like Jesus Christ telling his Apostles on that…Holy Land ka talaga pumunta ano?
All of the above are omens the 3 are already knowing ahead of what changes is soon to happen to them. At least that’s good!
Good luck to you guys! Happy jailing!
POLL: Should Cabinet members included on “lists’ of persons involved in the pork barrel scam quit their post? Clik here to answer:

Senators don’t quit. Why should we?
Always buy a PDAF ticket and WIN!
‘o – Napoles experiencing bleeding, says lawyer – ehe?
She doesn’t want to go back to Saint Rosa, Laguna? Sue her doctors!
…her doctors said “The doctors told her that it’s not normal for her to be bleeding because she does not have a uterus anymore,”
hahaha…lying again, this time to her doctors! Kasi walang pambayad sa P150th pang utang sa ospital.
…’tol you…she lies even in bed!
…maybe not at the uter area…ibang panda na butas yun bleeding…
Santol season ngayun…kumain ba siya yan? Niloloon yata yun BUTO!
…you can see…the mastermind in this HIT LIST of Janet is even ‘using’ the Santol buto as a tool to cause pretext bleeding! How santol can you be so low!
…just plant that santol buto at Sta. Rosa, Laguna. That area need replanting for trees anyway.
