Luy a former employee of Napoles’ JLN Group of Companies, accused Napoles and at least 3 others of detaining him against his will at a condominium unit in Taguig City from December 19, 2012 to March 22 of this year.

He claimed he was detained to prevent him from revealing the involvement of Napoles in the 2004 fertilizer fund scam.

Luy has claimed that Napoles set fake NGOs to get billions in pork barrel funds of lawmakers.

Napoles has denied the allegation, saying her wealth was legitimately acquired. She also said Luy volunteered to go on a retreat at the time he was allegedly being detained against his will.
