The Court of Appeals instead asks all parties in the case to comment on the TRO petition filed by the Napoles camp

MANILA, Philippines – The Court of Appeals on Wednesday, August 28, asked all parties in the Janet Napoles case to comment on her petition to stop the arrest warrant issued against her.

The Napoles camp went to the CA for the issuance of a temporary restraining order against the arrest warrant issued against her by a Makati court on August 14.

But instead of a TRO, the CA issued an order asking the Makati court and the justice department to comment within 10 days on the Napoles petition. The petition was on behalf of Janet Napoles and her brother Reynald Lim, both charged with serious illegal detention for the alleged abduction of their cousin-turned-whistleblower Benhur Luy.

President Benigno Aquino III on Wednesday, August 28 announced that the government has put up a P10-million reward for any information leading to the arrest of Napoles. – Rappler.com
