Congressional fund scammer’s contact details leaked online

MANILA: Contact details and alleged addresses of Janet Lim-Napoles, fugitive mastermind and accused of defrauding Congressional funds, are now circulating online after being leaked on a Facebook page of a group of Filipinos opposed to Congressional aid .

A post on the Anonymous Incorporated Facebook page shows the purported email addresses, cell and landline numbers, and residential addresses of Napoles and some of his family members. “We don’t have the power to know everything. We only know a few things, but the things we wrote here were all vital and served as a key to unraveling the mystery of how corruption and corruption operate at the very heart of our government that no one has dared explain in a public forum,” said the Facebook post created on Tuesday afternoon.

The post listed 11 “verified, valid and working email addresses” as well as Napoles office and residential addresses in Muntinlupa, Pasig, Taguig and California, USA. The Facebook post has already garnered 6,105 “shares” in less than 12 hours. Facebook page Anonymous Incorporated says it’s for “Filipinos totally against the fund in any form or name.”

Napoles is at the center of the alleged scam, as it is accused of creating bogus non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that have received funding of 10 billion pesos ($240 million) from some lawmakers.

A Makati court has issued an arrest warrant for Napoles and his brother Reynald Lim, following charges of illegally detaining whistleblower Benhur Luy. Napoles and her brother escaped arrest, prompting authorities to urge the public to make a “citizen’s arrest” of the embattled businesswoman.

Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said all regional and field offices of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) have been alerted to assist the agency’s task forces tasked with Napoles’ arrest.
