“Sta. Rosa is not a jail nor a custodial center. I wouldn’t wonder why they didn’t understand a produce order issued by the court,” Third Division member, Sandiganbayan Associate Justice Samuel Martires said on a Friday hearing.
“The police has no business in taking custody of people facing charges. The accused should be turned over to the court which will decide where should she be detained,”
“If the other divisions committed the accused in other facilities that is their problem, not the problem of this division. We will do what we are supposed to do,” Martires clarified.
Unlike Senators Revilla and Estrada, Janet Lim Napoles will be transferred to a Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) facility Taguig city.
“The said Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) is hereby directed to cause the immediate transfer of the said accused from the Philippine National Police SAF Training School in Fort Sto Domingo, Sta Rosa City, Laguna, to its facility,” reads in the resolution ordering the transfer of Napoles.
