‘Jeane Lim-Napoles’ photo does rounds of international news websites

By

MANILA, Philippines – Some international news websites posted the photo of a woman bathing in money who was identified as Jeane Lim-Napoles, the daughter of detained businesswoman Janet Lim-Napoles.

Huffington Post, an online news aggregator based in the United States, ran a story on the younger Napoles facing tax evasion charges filed by the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) here on Thursday and used the photo that was linked to a Facebook hate page that bashed the young Napoles for her lavish lifestyle.

But the woman in the photo isn’t Jeane Lim-Napoles. INQUIRER.net pointed this out in a comment below the report and by others on Twitter.

The Huffpost article  sourced its story from news.com.au, an Australia-based news website, which in turn cited the Agence France Presse.

The Facebook page had the name of Jeane Lim-Napoles and posted status and photos slamming the youngest daughter of the detained businesswoman, the alleged brains behind the P10 billion pork barrel scam.

The photo started to circulate after news.com.au uploaded on Thursday the picture with a caption: “A photograph posted on social media sites by Jeane Lim-Napoles, the daughter of Manila businesswoman, Janet Lim-Napoles, show an extravagance that has attracted the eye of the tax man.”

Aside from Huffington Post, this same photo was also posted on the dailymail.co.uk.

Jeane Catherine Napoles was charged with tax evasion on Thursday for allegedly failing to declare income for multimillion-peso properties she had purchased and registered in her name, including a Ritz Carlton unit in Los Angeles, California worth P54.73 million.

She also has a share equivalent to P1.49 million, in a Bayambang, Pangasinan property purchased in 2012.
