Renz Fernandez on Mark Anthony's arrest: ‘Umaasa ako na maging favorable ang batas sa kanya’


110916-RenzMarkFernandez_PUSH.jpgAfter being introduced as one of the new cast members in the upcoming six-part HOOQ Originals mini-series OTJ (based on the film starring Gerald Anderson and Piolo Pascual), Renz Fernandez shared how his half-brother Mark Anthony Fernandez is doing after being arrested on drug-related charges in Pampanga last month. "Actually yung last time (siya nabisita) mga three weeks ago tapos dinalaw siya nung isa kong kapatid recently dahil nag-taping siya dun sa kulungan kung saan siya. Hindi daw masyado okay so ayun malungkot kami para dun. Hindi masyado maayos eh pero sana pakawalan na siya kasi mabait siya eh. At saka hindi ko puwede ikuwento yung buong storya baka magalit yung abogado," he shared during HOOQ's OTJ the series cast reveal held last November 8 at the B hotel in Quezon City.

Renz also commented on reports that Mark Anthony had become suicidal last weekend. "Wala akong magagawa eh. Siyempre naapektuhan. Actually hindi ko puwede i-discuss masyado eh dahil sabi ng abogado pero bilang pamilya alam mo naman masakit para sa amin. Nandito kami lagi. Kahit nung dati pa naman. Umaasa ako na magiging favorable ang batas sa kanya dahil nasa tama siya eh," he explained.

The OTJ the series actor said he hopes for the best for his older brother. "Of course sana makalaya na siya. Yun ang pangarap ko. Sana palayain na siya. Sabi niya sa akin tulungan ko daw siya, ipagdasal ko daw siya tapos sabi ko sa kanya, 'Huwag siya susuko dahil malalagpasan niya yan.'" he admitted.

With the case still waiting to be arraigned in court, Renz said the family are giving Mark Anthony their full support. "Unang una ang pagdarasal yun ang number one. Pangalawa, pagbisita sa kanya. Tapos moral support. Tapos lahat ng puwede kung ano man ang request niya. Pero limited pa rin," he added.
