Janet Napoles ordered arrested

Businesswoman Janet Lim Napoles has been ordered arrested for alleged serious detention, reports say Wednesday.

Reports quoting Justice Secretary Leila de lima said National Bureau of Investigation agents are set to arrest Napoles for supposed illegal detention of Benhur Luy, the whistle-blower of the P10-million pork barrel fund scam. Makati Regional Trial Court Branch 150 reportedly issued the arrest warrant.

Also ordered arrested was Napoles' brother Reynald “Jojo” Lim.

Napoles and her brother cannot post bail, the report added.

Napoles has recently made headlines for allegedly orchestrating the massive money-making scheme that involved several lawmakers. The pork barrel scam supposedly diverted funds from the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) to bogus non-government organizations.
