MANILA — After suffering from “significant” vaginal bleeding, Janet Lim-Napoles, the alleged mastermind of the pork barrel scam, will be discharged from Ospital ng Makati on Thursday, May 29

Napoles’ gynecologist Dr. Efren Domingo told the regional trial court that Napoles had stopped bleeding last May 21 — four days after the bleeding began.

However, this statement contradicts Ospital ng Makati’s gynecologist Dr. Florentino Villanueva’s findings. Villanueva said Napoles had only stopped bleeding last May 22.

Villanueva said he is allowing Napoles’ discharge only after a “bleeding-free” period of seven to ten days.

“I could order her discharged on May 28,” he said.

The court is currently trying the serious illegal detention case filed by the pork scam whistleblower Benjur Luy, as well as the urgent motion for an extended stay at OsMak filed by Napoles’ camp.
