P-Noy posed for photo with Jeane Napoles, confirms Malacañang
But the Palace says it should not be looked at beyond its face value.
This is a screenshot of the photo showing Jeane Napoles with P-Noy. Nobody knows who suddenly spread this online, as Jeane Napoles’ Instagram account no longer has any phots in it.
ABS-CBN News correspondent Pia Gutierrez reports that spokespersons at Malacañang Palace have confirmed the authenticity of a photo showing Janet Lim Napoles' daughter Jeane posing with President Benigno Aquino III.
According to the report, Presidential Communications Secretary Ricky Carandang said the photo was taken "late November last year at a private event in Shangri-La Mactan in Cebu following the canonization of St. Pedro Calungsod." A copy of the picture, taken from Jeane's Instagram account, has surfaced online.
"As in any party that the President attended, Carandang explained that he was mobbed with people wanting to have their picture taken with him, with Jeane being one of them," the article said. Aquino recently said he does not know any members of the Napoles family involved in the pork barrel scam.
