Fugitive Janet Napoles ended up meeting with no less than President Benigno Aquino III on Wednesday night, August 28, after Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda initiated talks with her lawyer. In a press briefing, Lacierda said he called lawyer Lorna Kapunan, a former colleague in a law firm of former Sen Raul Roco, to confirm reports her client wanted to surrender. Kapunan confirmed the reports and they ended up meeting at the Heritage Park cemetery at past 9 pm. She told Lacierda that Napoles wanted to surrender only to the President because of the threat to her life. Aquino and Napoles spoke for about 10 minutes before she was turned over to the custody of Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas.
