The Palace on their part is appealing to the public not to maliciously interpret the picture of President Aquino and Jeane Napoles, to mean that the President is connected to the Napoles.
Presidential spokesman Ricky Carandang said Aquino does not know any of the Napoleses even as a picture of him and Jeane surfaced, apparently taken from Jeane’s Instagram account.
According to the Palace, the picture of President PNoy and Jeane Napoles was taken last year at a private event in Shangri-La Mactan in Cebu following the canonization of St. Pedro Calungsod.
Deputy Presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte also confirmed that the photo was taken in Cebu on November last year. Carandang also added that Napoles, and her husband were in the same party that also had a picture with Aquino, based on the picture archives of the Palace’s official photographer.
