No hospital arrest for Janet Lim-Napoles after PNP doctors diagnose her condition as "not life-threatening"

Julliane Love De Jesus of reports that doctors from the Philippine National Police (PNP) have not recommended the confinement of alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles as they discovered the suspected ovarian cyst she has complained of was actually a mass in her uterus.


The report explained that doctors have concluded that Napoles' condition was "not alarming at this point in time [and] not life-threatening" after subjecting her to several medical tests for two hours at the PNP General Hospital in Camp Crame. The detained businesswoman earlier asked a Makati court "that she be placed under hospital arrest due to the presence of a suspected ovarian tumor."
