Atty. Lorna Kapunan, the lawyer of Janet Lim Napoles, said her client voluntarily surrendered to the President Wednesday night.
“We directly surrendered to the President and we were assured that she will be given due process of law,” she told dzMM.
Kapunan said Napoles decided to surrender to the President over fear of her safety following the P10-million reward offered by the government for her arrest.
She also said Napoles’ surrender should quash rumors that Napoles fled the country and was guarded by armed men.
“There are no yachts, no airplane, no submarine and she is not guarded by heavily armed bodyguards... She came in alone,” she said.
Kapunan said her brother, Reynald Lim, will also voluntarily surrender to authorities soon. -- dzMM, August 28, 2013
