ABS-CBN News correspondent Willard Cheng reports that on Thursday, September 12, "Malacañang released photographs of President Aquino with Janet Napoles, her husband Jimmy and daughter Jeane, along with several others taken in a function in Cebu in November 2012."
The report noted: "In releasing the batch of 24 photos, the Palace wanted to show that President Aquino only obliged to photo requests of several people even without knowing them personally. The Palace reiterated that Aquino did not know Napoles personally."
The report went on to quote Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office (PCDSPO) Secretary Ricky Carandang, who said, "(The president) doesn’t know them personally. I’ve shown some of those photos and it’s really just a question of her going and asking for the picture. He didn’t even know who she was."
