Filipino politicians all on edge as top Ph ‘pork barrel scam’ fugitive Janet Lim Napoles ‘surrenders to PNoy’

How exactly does one “surrender” to the President of the Philippines? Does one come knocking at Malacanang’s door with their hands in the air? What exactly does turning a fugitive over to a cabinet Secretary for “processing” mean? Regardles… now that Janet Lim Napoles has reportedly surrendered to Philippine President Benigno Simeon “BS” Aquino III, the plot surrounding the top person-of-interest in the raging controversy around Congressional pork barrel thievery (allegedly) is now allowed to thicken.

Napoles seemingly expresses what she thinks of the P10m bounty on her capture.
Napoles seemingly expresses what she thinks of the bounty on her capture.
Interestingly, Napoles’s “surrender” came shortly after President BS Aquino announced a Php10-million “bounty” on her capture. Whatever the facts surrounding this bit of trivia may be, it need not take a rocket scientist to predict the sorts of speculation this factoid will likely induce across the Philippines’ chattering classes, some of which had already been “confirmed” by Napoles’s lawyer. And what else can the public do but speculate and broker rumours considering that Presidential Security Group (PSG) personnel have banned journalists from entering the Philippine National Police headquarters in Camp Crame where Napoles reportedly surrendered.

Aquino motored to the PNP national headquarters to accept the surrender of Napoles and turned her over to Roxas. The President also met with Napoles’ husband, Jimmy.

But the media was barred from the meeting. Unlike criminal suspects who are immediately presented to the media, the Presidential Security Group ordered the police not to allow journalists to enter the camp.

There was no explanation why Napoles was shielded from the media.

But then why turn a suspected crook over to a cabinet secretary? Isn’t crime a police matter?

One also can’t help but wonder why a Philippine President would even bother to “motor” to Camp Crame to “accept” Napoles’s “surrender”. Some observant netizens have likened this to the President making a courtesy call to the wealthy fugitive.

To be fair, perhaps Napoles may be entitled to courtesy from no less than the President of the Philippines. After all, rumours about her hefty contributions to election campaigns have persisted after “a friend” of Napoles, showbiz personality Lolit Solis, identified Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa as supposedly having solicited campaign contributions from Napoles back then.

Solis was interviewed over at radio dzBB, claiming that she heard Napoles talk on the phone with a certain “Jojo”.

“Magkasama kami ni Jenny (Janet Napoles) that time may kausap siya sa phone parang nanghihingi ng pera,” Lolit told radio hosts Arnold Clavio and Lala Roque.

Prodded by Clavio if it was Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada, she said: “Jojo Ochoa.”

She said she was not sure which Jojo was on the other line, but Napoles supposedly told her it was Jojo Ochoa.

According to Solis, this all “happened during Christmas time, months before the 2013 elections.”

This was, of course, reportedly denied by Ochoa as “hearsay”. Ochoa has since “chosen not to dignify these with a response,” according to Assistant Secretary Jed M. Eva III.

The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) have also reportedly denied rumours that Napoles contributed to BS Aquino’s presidential campaign in 2010.

A friend of Napoles had earlier disclosed that the latter donated to the campaign funds of Aquino, Villar, and Estrada in 2010.

But based on the Statement of Election Contributions and Expenditures (SOCE) that the three submitted to the Comelec during the May 2010 polls nothing shows she had contributions to the presidential candidates’ campaign funds.

What other juicy bits of information lie waiting to be harvested from the Philippines’ most wanted former fugitive? It is no wonder, then, that President BS Aquino is stumbling all over himself to navigate Manila’s traffic-choked streets on the ride from Malacanang to Camp Crame just to personally oversee the baffling handover of an alleged crook from the police to Secretary Mar Roxas.

Did BS Aquino make an exception this time on his promise to be one with the huddled masses’ traffic suffering and invoke his entitlement to a proper motorcade with blaring “wang-wang” sirens to ensure he gets every bit of an advantage over the average Pinoy schmoe in the drive to the PNP’s headquarters?

Who could blame him? The Napoles affair is an “important” thing, after all, right folks?

El Presidente needs some good publicity in the Pork Barrel Scandal he’s into. As usual, another scapegoat ready for sacrifice.

siomai

The president does not need good publicity because he already has it even before he was proclaimed president.

Warla

Does good publicity include Hacienda Luisita and slacking in the office? I believe the only “good” publicity he got was from his parents and their biased media allies.

He is no longer involved in HL and not a slacker. It is just a jab punch of the opposition to the president.

Johnny Derp

Nah, its more of a sucker punch because its still true.
He’s still a slacker since it already has been 3 years and he has done nothing but go after his political enemies while lining his KKK and oligiarch friend’s pockets with loads of money.
You should realize by now that your propaganda isn’t fooling anyone here.

You should get real and get lost.

Obviously, you are a paid hack of the malacanang miscommunications group. Your president is in cahoots with mrs. napoles since he obviously knows her personally. Why else would she surrender herself to the president?

I remember a news article in the Philippine Star. It stated that a Palace consultant was immediately fired for being close to Napoles. The consultant was connected with Executive Secretary Ochoa. Why was the consultant not subjected to investigation? Because the Ochoa connection goes straight up to BS Aquino. BS Aquino pretends to be against the pork barrel. But hey he has the biggest pork barrel of them all! Now tagged as the mother of all pork barrels at PHP 1 Trillion Pesos. Mr. Aquino is the godfather of the pork barrel. He knows Napoles because of the Ochoa consultant… Read more »

Something is not right with the Executive Secretary and whoever palace factotum. For it is hard to grant them a wider latitude of mental leniency since they could have strongly advised the President not to directly meet and handover a fugitive to the PNP head and DILG secretary, far away from media spotlight. This is not even a transaction we could appropriately say is of Presidential gravitas. Only in the Philippines, where a fugitive can surrender to the President with open arms and away from the glaring media spotlight !!!! What were the factotums thinking ?

Totally agree with you. Why would a fugitive accused of illegal detention (and plunder, treason or anything that would destabilize the state) surrender to the President himself? Obviously, there was something going on. And why would it take the full resources of the executive department (Roxas, Lacierda, PNP chief) to secure a fugitive from a crime of illegal detention? Aquino has not only made himself foolishly part of the fray but has demeaned his office by even talking to a fugitive. Well, I’m not surprised, he did it with Lacson. Look where he is right now: up for a Cabinet… Read more »

You must be happy that Napoles surrendered through our president. Hats off to him. He is the only one that can do it. And never compare her to GMA, because everyone saw how she attempted to escape the country and never surrendered.

libertas

Being uneducated and ill informed without the ability to state a case clearly, comprehensively, but concisely, and repeating meaningless motherhood statements without rhyme or reason is being not only moronic but childish and contributes nothing to any dialogue on change.
Try thinking for yourself rather than simply making a fool of yourself and exhibiting no creative or independent thought.
No wonder you do not have a job.
Over and out.
P.s. you do not speak for filipinos, and you clearly struggle to illucide any meaningful comment, so don’t offend your betters.

“So being fair is moronic? Maybe for you. But for us, Filipinos, we want change.”

@siomai

Butt hurt siomai? The heat must have fried your brains yellow again. Napoles surrendered through your president because he knows her. She was extended VIP treatment. He is the only one than do what? What he did shows that the highest corridors of power are infected with the pork scam! Blame game again on GMA? She never surrendered? Are you into shabu? Cut the substance abuse boy. WHAT A PUNY MALACANANG PALACE TROLL! 🙂

siomai
Guest

There is no special treatment for her, the president only gave her maximum security because she is under threat.

Thomas Jefferson
Guest

@siomai

Napoles is not under threat from the guilty members of the congress and the senate. Remember your favorite president dictator BS Aquino controls the legislature and that includes the pork barrel. Mr. Aquino is protecting Napoles from the media and the Sovereign Filipino People right? As Mr. Spock would say to an alien life form like you… Fascinating!

siomai

There are threats from other legislators who are involved in the scam and wants to silence her so it is not only the people outside that will attempt to assassinate her.

There are no threats from other legislators who are involved in the scam! I read the news regularly. You lie PATHETIC TROLL!

I would like to believe that there is no special treatment for her but given that fact that he drove to Camp Crame for the surrender of Napoles does not jive with that view. Maybe there is a security factor why the president himself went to a suspect who is surrendering but just the same the confusion has already been made. Why do they call it ‘surrendered to the president’ when Napoles allegedly went to Camp Crame? Isn’t that surrendering to the PNP? I mean, let’s be accurate here.

So why would Napoles surrender to BS Aquino? Because BS “pork” Aquino is known by her. Mr. Aquino is very much a part of the pork barrel scam. Aside from this he gets free black propaganda looking like an anti-graft and corruption crusader. Still trying to fool the people about his Matuwid na Daan. You can’t fool all the people all of the time! The smell from the pork barrel scam is rotten and is the sickly sweet smell of death. The Matuwid na Daan is no more!

” Aquino is very much a

He is never a part of this scam. He even made an anti graft committee that will handle the pork scam under de Lima and Morales. And we have to remember that president won as president because he will fight corruption.

@siomai

Your brain matter cannot analyze logical statements. Obviously you do not read the press reports. He controls the power of the purse! Where do you think the pork barrel comes from? He won as president because he will fight corruption? What kind of English grammar is that? Your repeat black propaganda lies is apparent. BS Aquino is corrupt! Deal with it PATHETIC TROLL! You are inferior! Butt Hurt? 🙂

Your president won because of the so-called “Cory Magic”. Do you even think he would’ve run in the first place had she not died?

Personally, I hate how people associate her with democracy – all the woman did was hide in Cebu.

So what if she is in Cebu? Are you the people that time?

Johnny Derp

It is a known fact that she was hiding in cebu because she was too much of a coward to be at edsa. The true heroes were the ones that were there and before you even say that I should have been there,I wasn’t even born yet so your argument is invalidated.

I am more or less incline to go with what you said above because you culled it from our experience in the past, I’m sure. From Marcos to Erap to Gloria, the consistency is undeniable, those in power never gets to serve time like ordinary people and they get to keep a part of their loot.

All conspiracy theories aside I really didn’t find anything wrong with the whole event other than it being a huge security risk for PNoy and the fact that it might set a precedent in the future events involving the surrender of well known criminals.

It might have gone a lot worse had the President refused to accept her surrender. A dead Napoles is a useless Napoles especially with that whole Cadavero fiasco from a while back.

Better still if pnoy had ‘other meeting’ and devolved responsibility.
It gives napoles more creedence than she merits and feeds her delusions of grandeur.
Bad pr from the miscommunications group as per usual.
And why then would pnoy spend an additional 2 hours taking her to camp crame and tucking her in.
Am sure it gave international leaders who are handling a potential war on syria a momentary laugh

Penoy and Napoles will negotiate behind closed doors in order to hide Penoy’s involvement in the pork barrel scandal. Of all the crooks in the government, Penoy is the biggest hypocrite.

I don’t see any security risk for PNoy in the surrender of Napoles. What I saw was security risk for Napoles. She’s the prime suspect who allegedly have cohorts in gov’t. in amassing billions of pesos through pork barrel.

I have a question for siomai. Duh, if Janet Napoles surrendered to Mr. BS Aquino… should Mr. Aquino receive the PHP 10 Million Pesos reward since he “arrested” her and sent her to Camp Crame? Another question is the PHP 10 Million Pesos reward sourced from the presidential pork? Oink! Oink!

So… I like pattern recognition and connecting the dots: 1. The Malacanang Palace consultant who was recently fired was connected to Janet Napoles. This consultant was never investigated. The fired consultant was connected with Executive Secretary Ochoa. We also now that Ochoa is close to president BS Aquino. 2. Janet Napoles surrendered to Mr. BS Aquino in Malacanang Palace. She was either brought there or was given shelter and sanctuary in Malacanang Palace. 3. Mr. BS Aquino is part of the pork barrel scam as he controls the power of the purse. He also controls the legislature in the senate… Read more »

Siomai, you are both outnumbered and outgunned here. If not ad hominems are directed against you, there are all hard counters to your Pro-PNoy arguments here. I think it is highly counter-productive for you to debate with the GRP crew.
