Napoles detained at Laguna fort

Napoles, who was in handcuffs during the transfer, was accompanied by her husband, Jimmy, said PNP SAF Director Carmelo Valmoria. She underwent a medical check-up upon her arrival.

Although she will be in SAF custody, the rules set by the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) will be followed. 

"Sabi nga namin, no special treatment," Valmoria said.

Valmoria said the custodial officer at the fort will decide on what she could wear while in custody.

She will be allowed to move freely inside the area, but the detention facility will be padlocked at night from 7-8 pm. It will be re-opened only in the morning, starting at 6 am.

She will be receiving regular insulin injections, and will be administered by a doctor from the SAF. A doctor will be also be on standby in case of any medical emergency, the Valmoria said.

The Makati City jail warden and the head of the Criminal Investigation Detection Group-National Capital Region recommended the transfer of Napoles.

Makati City Jail officials said they could not guarantee the safety of Napoles, who has been linked to an intricate web of corruption involving the Priority Development Assistance Fund, lawmakers and fictitious NGOs.

She is however being detained on charges of serious illegal detention, a non-bailable offense. - With reports from Bea Cupin, Michael Bueza and Angela Casauay/ Rappler.com
