MANILA - Two children of alleged pork scam mastermind Janet Lim Napoles posted bail Friday before the Sandiganbayan Third Division after being named as co-accused in the graft charges filed against Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile.

A radio DZMM report said Jo Christine and James Christopher posted P450,000 bail each after the two were slapped with 15 counts of graft in connection with the alleged P10 billion pork barrel scam.

Instead of cash, the 2 Napoles siblings posted bail in the form of surety bonds from Alpha Insurance Surety Company and Far Eastern Surety and Insurance Inc.

Several co-accused - Fernando Ramirez, Nitz Cabilao, Renato Ornopia, Jesus Castillo, and Dorilyn Fabian - also posted bail before the Sandiganbayan.

The respondents are accused of conniving to divert billions of pesos in Priority Development Assistance Fund allocations of lawmakers to bogus non-government organizations of Janet Lim Napoles. Report from Robert Mano, radio DZMM
