MANILA - Alleged pork barrel queen Janet Lim Napoles wore a Pope Francis shirt during a bail hearing on Wednesday.
On her yellow shirt were the words “mercy and compassion” – the rallying cry of Pope Francis, who will be arriving in the Philippines tomorrow for a five-day visit.
Napoles, a self-proclaimed religious person, said she is one with the country in praying for the safety of the Catholic Church’s top leader.
"Kapayapaan para sa buong bansa at sana ligtas ang kanyang pagbisita...," she said.
Napoles, who allegedly put up bogus nongovernment organizations and worked with lawmakers to pocket pork barrel funds, did not get “mercy and compassion” from netizens.
