Janet Lim-Napoles' blood pressure shot up on her second night in Fort Sto. Domingo, medical personnel at the police camp where she is detained said Tuesday.
Napoles reportedly complained of a tingling sensation on her face at around 1 a.m. and suffered from hypertension and nausea at past 4. Her blood pressure registered at 200/130 and her sugar level was 90.
She earlier suffered an anxiety attack early Monday morning due to claustrophobia.
Napoles is the alleged operator of the multi-billion pork barrel scam where lawmakers' Priority Develepment Assistance Fund (PDAF) are funneled to bogus NGOs.
Her lawyer, Lorna Kapunan, had repeatedly said they are not seeking hospital arrest.
Meanwhile, Interior and Local Government Sec. Mar Roxas raised concern over the possible difficulties in transporting Napoles to and from the Makatic City Court once her trial begins.
"Sa isang lipatan, sa isang movement, hindi gaano kalaki, pero kung ito ay regular, halimbawa, araw-araw ang paglilitis, mas lalaki [gastos]," Roxas said.
Aside from the high cost of Napoles' transfer, Roxas also noted its impact on motorists should the transfer be done during regular hours.
"Nung nilipat siya magmula dito [sa Camp Crame] tungo sa Makati City Jail, ginawa ito halos hating-gabi, hindi ma-traffic at hindi makadagdag-traffic...pero kung araw-araw na 'yan, aba'y marami nang mabubulabog, marami ang madidistorbo dahil nga regular hours na 'yan e," he explained.
Roxas however said they have yet to come up with a plan for Napoles' transfer.
Napoles surrendered Wednesday to President Aquino. She was earlier detained in an air-conditioned room in Makati City Jail before being transferred to Fort Sto. Domingo in Sta. Rosa, Laguna for security reasons.
