    As President of the Philippines, Pnoy should have not entertained Napoles in Malacanan Palace. I read that Pnoy even rode with Napoles to the PNP headquarters . Mar Roxas Roxas could have done that job in Pnoys place. I do hope that that Pnoy start explaining to the people why he did it at the earliest possible time before everyone starts speculating again negative ideas. Pnoy is doing a good job so far and I’d hate to see his ratings go down because of this Napoles surrender. He owes His Bosses an explanation!

  2. From the President to the lowest prison guard or aid at the palace who were involved in this surrender, good job guys, thank you. we got her. Let us keep her safe.

    All this cloak and dagger stuff for a case of illegal detention? Is this case bailable? And has she surrendered her passport? Very James Bondish.
    Is this a case of clouding the other matter? The pork barrel scam? Trying to put more emphasis on the illegal detention case while we’re supposed to forget all about the billions squandered (with her as the alleged mastermind)?
    What a circus.

    The Million Marchers for sure is aghast the way the surrender happened.

    An alleged high-profile plunderer chose to surrender only to no less than a president.

    A day or two prior to the “Million March” my friend from the PHL emailed me a kind of parable about a TREE and after the surrender, she mentioned about BIRDS of a kind flocking the T.

    Anyway, the BOSS expects a convincing explanation about the surrender, and who pocketed the P10M finder’s fee.

    COA need to explain the money if nobody will explain it.

  5. This bounty to capture an outlaw should be waived. If her mouthpiece gets it, this Tsina gets it again?
