Monsignor Josefino S. Ramirez, a retired priest of the Archdiocese of Manila, is renting a Forbes Park house said to be owned by Janet Lim-Napoles, for P280,000 a month. A two-year contract of lease was signed by Ramirez on March 7, 2013 and indicated that the priest “agrees to pay the sum of P1,120,000” upon the signing of the contract. P560,000 was required as advance rental, while the balance was supposed to cover a two-month security deposit. Gertrudes Luy, a former employee of Napoles, said the property was never used by the Napoleses as a house and was instead just used as a place to hear Mass. In an affidavit submitted to the court, Napoles herself denied owning the property.
