MANILA, Philippines - The Court of Appeals froze on Friday all the bank accounts of suspected pork barrel-scam brains Janet Lim-Napoles, her family, staff and of her company JLN Corporation, according to Justice Secretary Leila De Lima.

The appellate court issued the freeze order upon request of the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC). The freeze was issued just hours after Napoles through counsel also ran to the CA for relief in a separate case - this time to stop enforcement of a Makati court's order for her arrest, on a case of serious illegal detention filed by her ex-aide Benhur Luy, the prime whistleblower of the Justice department in the investigation on the pork barrel misuse.

De Lima said in a text message to reporters: "Acting on the Petition filed by AMLC thru OSG, a Freeze Order was issued today by CA covering the accounts and related web of accounts of Janet Lim Napoles, family members, other relatives and staff, as well as those of the NGOs identified with JLN."

The freeze order is effective for 6 months.
