MANILA (1st UPDATE) – The Philippine National Police (PNP) on Thursday afternoon released mug shots of businesswoman Janet Lim Napoles, who surrendered to President Aquino Wednesday night.

PNP Public Information Office (PIO) chief Sr. Supt. Sindac showed reporters the mug shots and fingerprints of Napoles at Camp Crame, where she is temporarily detained.

Napoles is set to be transferred to Makati City Jail, but police said an inspection will be conducted at the facility first before she is cleared for transfer.

According to dzMM’s Edwin Sevidal, who saw the mug shots first hand, Napoles appeared stressed and tired in the photos.

“Sa hitsura ni Janet Napoles, base na din sa mga nakikita kong video sa TV na ayos na ayos, dito parang puyat: malalim ‘yung mata. Hindi katulad sa usual na nakikita natin na nakangiti, dito ay halatang puyat at malaki ang eyebags,” Sevidal reported.

Sevidal noted that in the mug shots, Napoles was wearing the same clothes she was in when she met with the President in Malacañang.

Napoles, who is wanted for serious illegal detention of pork barrel scam whistleblower Benhur Luy, gave herself up as she feared for her safety following the P10-million reward offered by the government for her arrest.
