JEANE Catherine Napoles, daughter of alleged mastermind of pork barrel scam Janet Napoles, posted bail on Monday at the Court of Tax Appeals (CTA) in connection with her P17.88-million tax evasion charges.
Napoles’ lawyer, Stephen David, said her client posted P50,000 for her temporary liberty.
She will be arraigned before the CTA First Division on April 22. Napoles also has another tax evasion case pending at the CTA Third Division.
“Nag-post na tayo ng bail bond sa Court of Tax Appeals. First and Third Division kaya lang ‘yung Third, dinefer ‘yung posting ng bail bond kasi may judicial determination of probable cause kasi. Sa First Division, inadmit nila ‘yung aming bail bond na P50,000. One count each ‘yun for non-filing daw of income tax,” Atty. Stephen David said in a media interview.
