MANILA - After being confined in the intensive care unit of the Philippine Heart Center, lawyer Jessica "Gigi" Reyes was brought back to Camp Bagong Diwa in Bicutan, Taguig City on Monday night.

The former chief of staff of Senator Juan Ponce Enrile, who is also an accused in the pork barrel scam, arrived at Camp Bagong Diwa at around 10 p.m.

She will be staying under medical isolation on the first floor of the Taguig City Jail's female ward until she is clear of radiation that she got from her medical treatment.

Aries Villaester, spokesperson of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), said Reyes will be transferred to her isolated cell after a week.

Reyes' cell measures only 1.5 by 3 meters, said Villaester.

He said authorities are still working on visiting regulations for Reyes, but assured that they will be fair with her.

Reyes was detained at the female ward of the Taguig City Jail on July 9, but was immediately brought to the hospital because of her health. --report from Zhander Cayabyab, dzMM
