MANILA - Janet Napoles on IV, lying in bed in her hospital room, and closely guarded. That's the current condition of the alleged pork barrel queen, according to a photo given to ABS-CBN News by her lawyer.
Journalists are not allowed inside the Ospital ng Makati (OsMak), but we were still able to talk to Napoles through her lawyer's cellphone.
Napoles, who doctors said has been experiencing bleeding, denied that she is faking her illness so she can stay longer in hospital.
ABS-CBN had several questions for Napoles, but she refused to answer most, if not all.
ABS-CBN News asked her how many politicians will be added to the list of alleged pork barrel beneficiaries.
But Napoles said she will only name names when she finishes her 2nd affidavit.
Napoles also did not say what she wants in exchange for her tell-all.
She also insisted that she only released one list, and that list is already with the Senate.
Sought for comment on another list -- supposedly from key whistleblower Benhur Luy -- Napoles said she does not know anything about it.
As for Luy, Napoles said she is hoping that he will tell the truth.
She did not talk much about the lawmakers who have already been linked to her.
But she made an appeal that people should hold judgment and wait for her 2nd affidavit before deciding whether she's fit or not to become a state witness.
Napoles also said she knows how precarious her situation is.
But despite the death threats and her medical condition, she said she will tell the truth about the multibillion-peso pork barrel scam. - with ANC
