MANILA, Philippines—A freeze order was issued Friday by the Court of Appeals (CA) covering the accounts of Janet Lim-Napoles, the alleged brains behind the P10-billion “pork barrel” scam.

The appellate court froze the bank assets of Napoles including those owned by her immediate family members, relatives, Janet Lim-Napoles (JLN) Corporation personnel and nongovernment organizations (NGOs) affiliated with the businesswoman.

Napoles, now tagged by the Department of Justice (DOJ) as a “high-profile fugitive,” is currently declared missing along with her brother Reynald “Jojo” Lim after an arrest warrant were issued against them on the grounds of serious illegal detention filed by the 10-billion pork barrel scam whistle-blower Benhur K. Luy.
