No more special treatment: Guevarra ends witness protection for Napoles

Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra on Friday dropped suspected pork barrel mastermind Janet Lim Napoles from the provisional coverage of the government’s witness protection program.

In a press statement, Guevarra stressed Napoles’ request for full coverage in the WPP was rendered moot and academic after three divisions of the Sandiganbayan turned down her request for transfer to a DoJ safehouse.

“As there has been no further claim of threats to her personal security inside Camp Bagong Diwa, the Secretary of Justice has found no reason to extend Ms. Napoles’ provisional coverage under the Witness Protection Program,” Guevarra’s press statement read.
