Jeane Napoles refuses to enter plea in tax evasion case

By Adrian Ayalin, ABS-CBN News

MANILA – Jeane Catherine Napoles, daughter of alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim Napoles, refused to enter a plea during her arraignment for a P17.4 million tax evasion case at the Court of Tax Appeals.

The refusal of Napoles to enter a plea prompted CTA 3rd Division Associate Justice Esperanza Fabon-Victorino to enter a ”not guilty” plea on her behalf.

The younger Napoles was earlier charged with tax evasion after she failed to file income tax returns in 2011 and 2012.

The younger Napoles supposedly bought a condominium unit at the Ritz Carlton in Los Angeles, California for $1,280,000 (P54.73 million) in July 2011.

Her tax liability has ballooned to about P32 million due to non-payment and interest.

Napoles’ lawyers agreed to the arraignment without prejudice to their pending motion for reconsideration.

In an interview after the arraignment, Napoles lawyer Stephen David reiterated their point that Napoles is unemployed and is therefore not required to pay income tax.

Napoles is also facing another tax case, which is for the non-filing of income tax returns (ITR). She also refused to enter a plea in that case. The two tax cases are now consolidated at the 3rd Division.

At the height of the pork barrel scam, the younger Napoles was criticized after she was seen flaunting her lavish lifestyle via social media amid allegations that her mother stole public funds by forging illegal deals with lawmakers.

    Her lawyer is correct. Stealing is not a profession thus her money cannot be considered an income.

    I’m planning to write a book about the Filipinos they will do anything for “MONEY.” They want to be like us Americans, but don’t know how to do it the right way in life.

      demoncrap politician lawmakers voted in power, failed to do its jobs big time, to protect the law abiding citizens / legal residents of SF. these demoncrap politician lawmakers passed the baddest designation no legal meaning of sanctuary city, protecting criminal illegal aliens. the murder of the young woman should disgust the liberal people, who are instrumental in accepting the crazy idea of sanctuary city for the benefits of criminal illegal aliens, who are enthralled in killings have been happenings ever since with obobo’s non enforcement of criminal illegal aliens’ deportations. the demoncrap politician lawmakers are not alarmed / continue to ignore the criminal illegal aliens killings. demoncrap politician lawmakers are too harden, couldn’t care less attitude, will not back down on their ideologue of commie socialisms, risking citizens’ lives. if likely voter traditionalist americans are outnumbered by likely voter liberal fanatic americans, either naturally born with such traits of liberalism or brainwashed by the marxist lame stream medias, the cause / effect was the murder of this young woman, which is not going to be the last, as long as the criminal illegal aliens are on the loose. obobo / the demoncraps are not only incompetents, but by nature are MORONS, with so many out of control killings by americans in chicago, detroit, et all hoods of the USA, yet obobo / the demoncrap morons are addicted to welcoming criminal illegal aliens, so they can freely mingle with americans, just like what the murdered young woman was doing, minding her own business, only to be shot point blank by this criminal illegal alien, who have no right to be in the american soil, in the first place. the nerve of this criminal illegal alien claiming it was an accident, and i bet you all, obobo / the demoncraps are without doubts believing this scumbag criminal illegal alien claimed of shooting the young woman was indeed an accident. so what’s next?, send this criminal illegal alien to prison at the expense of the taxpayers?, wherein this criminal illegal alien from the rathole of mexico will have a modern roof in his head, fed 3 meals with snacks daily, if sick gets medical attention, outdoor exercises, free lawyers to argue his criminal act in the court of law. can get free educations on demand, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc. this criminal illegal alien had hit the jackpot for killing the young woman, and he damn knows it well, for the fact corrupt mexico cannot give all what american jails can offer, which is the out of this world treatment of murderers, and the system of voluntary forgetting the victims of crimes, simply regarded as STATISTIC, to justify the means. the family of the murdered young woman must look on all angles of the legal aspects to sue SF. the young woman’s productive life was cut short by this murderer illegal alien. the potentials of this young woman to make tons of money in her lifetime have to be paid by SF for setting up dangerous sanctuary city. the young woman’s life was wasted, gone in seconds. the actions of the demoncraps running the city of SF are responsible for the death of this young woman, as facilitators of criminal illegal aliens freely roaming the city to commit murder. demoncrap politicians of SF should go to jail, together with this criminal illegal alien is indeed the true justice for the love ones of the murdered young woman. her parents are forever going to be in pain, that will never ever go away for the rest of their lives, the worst of all for parents is to lose a child. no amount of money can ease the pain of her parents, but the huge millions handed to the family is going to teach lessons to stupid politician lawmakers, their bad actions will hit the pocket of the city really, really hard. sending these marxist demoncraps to jail will send signals to all the bleeding heart socialists, their liberal ways are disasters waiting to happen, yet these liberals don’t even know if it hit them, by continually in denial, as if the lives of the victims taken by the criminal illegal aliens are isolated cases, too trivial unrelated to designated sanctuary cities are the liberals bullcraps, that never ever dies.
