The convoy carrying Janet Lim Napoles has arrived at Makati City Jail after transferring her from Camp Crame.

Napoles, a Philippines businesswoman who was allegedly at the center of a billion peso corruption scheme, surrendered to President Benigno Aquino III on August 28.

Her representative told local media outlets that Napoles feared for her life, so her only condition for turning herself in was a guarantee of safety.

A nationwide manhunt had started weeks earlier for Napoles and her brother Reynald Lim, who is still at large.

GMA News reports that Napoles is now in Makati City Jail and the gates are closed. She arrived at about 11:24 p.m. local time.  “She will be detained in an office separate from the area for ordinary inmates,” it reported
