MANILA, Philippines–The Department of Justice (DoJ) on Monday summoned suppliers linked to the P728-million fertilizer fund scam.

Ordered to appear for a formal probe on April 15 were Janet Lim-Napoles and her brother Reynaldo Lim for allegedly detaining Benhur Luy, lead employee of JLN Group of Companies.

JLN Group of Companies allegedly oversaw the implementation of several government-funded projects like the alleged fertilizer scam, Malampaya fund scam, and Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF).

Luy was rescued by National Bureau of Investigation agents over the weekend after four months in captivity inside Pacific Plaza Tower, Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.

The siblings were ordered to submit their respective counter-affidavits, witnesses, and any supporting documents.

“You are hereby warned that failure on your part to comply with this subpoena shall be considered as a waiver to present your defense/s in this preliminary investigation and the case shall be considered submitted for resolution based on complainant’s evidence only,”  the subpoena stated.

Last March 1, relatives of the victims sought the government’s help in ensuring the safety of Luy.
