Ridiculous: Janet Lim Napoles stays in Ospital ng Makati, but St. Luke’s docs will go to her
Doesn’t this strike you as pointless?
Let’s get this straight.
When alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim Napoles asked that she be brought to the St. Luke’s Medical Center in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, the court said she would have to go to the Ospital ng Makati. But now that Napoles is confined at the Ospital ng Makati, the court has ruled that it’s OK for St. Luke’s doctors to check her out there.
Nestor Corrales and Niña P. Calleja of the Philippine Daily Inquirer report, "Makati Regional Trial Court Branch 150 Judge Elmo Alameda allowed on Wednesday, April 2, doctors of St. Luke's Medical Center-Elsie Badillo-Pascua, Efren Domingo, Leo Aquizilan, Michael Lim-Villa, Nick Cruz, an anesthesiologist, and a pulmonologist-to attend to Napoles’ medical needs and treatment at Ospital ng Makati."
The government may say that Napoles isn’t getting any special treatment, but have you ever seen a regular prisoner being given the same treatment she’s been getting? If that’s not "special," then we don’t now what is.
And, on top of it all, has Napoles actually confessed to anything? Maybe it’s best to just let her go and let the mob "take care" of her. As a prisoner, she’s really just using up public funds. Remember that it costs around P150,000 a month to keep her at Fort Sto. Domingo in Sta. Rosa Laguna. Then, around P120,000 is spent each time she is brought out for court appearances and such.
