Kris Aquino announced on her social media accounts that the Taguig prosecutor found a probable cause for Kris to continue her charges against Nicko Falcis.
A statement issued by Divina Law said that "The Taguig OCP (Office of the City Prosecutor) found the statements of Ms Kris Aquino as credible and the evidence she adduced as sufficient to establish a prima facie case that Nicko Falcis misappropriated and converted the corporate credit card entrusted to him for his own personal expenses.”
She also stressed that she has done the posting in a proper way.
“I need to point out, sa tamang paraan ang pag post nito- as you can see in my video, we received REGISTERED MAIL here at home today. Hindi po isang entertainment portal ang unang naglabas ng balita [sic].”
The Taguig City Fiscal is charging Nicko Falcis in court with Estafa and Credit Card Fraud. i need to point out, sa tamang paraan ang pag post nito- as you can see in my video, we received REGISTERED MAIL here at home today. Hindi po isang entertainment portal ang unang naglabas ng balita. i only personally met Dean Nilo Divina October 17, 2018. In 5 months he has become my rock of strength, an infinite source of reassurance, and most of all, he has treated me with so much compassion. Naramdaman ko, para sa kanya, at sa legal team he formed for me, hindi ako kliyente lang, pinahalagahan nila ang puso ko- they have treated me as a REAL person not just someone who is a client. Thank you, Dean because you told me to not let the setbacks derail me because we have the #TRUTH on our side. #divinejustice
However, Nicko and his brother Jesus Falcis said, “Taguig dismissed qualified theft clearly.”

PRESS STATEMENT OF NICKO FALCIS ON THE RESOLUTION OF THE OFFICE OF THE CITY PROSECUTOR OF TAGUIG Last March 07, 2019, the Office of the City Prosecutor of Taguig issued a Resolution (1) DISMISSING the complaint of Kris Aquino for QUALIFIED THEFT, (2) finding probable cause for Estafa, and (3) finding probable cause for violation of R.A. 8484 or the Access Device Regulation Act of 1998. Taguig prosecutors correctly dismissed the complaint of Kris Aquino. They had no choice otherwise they would appear grossly ignorant of the law for there was clearly no taking of property. But their finding of probable cause for estafa and violation of R.A. 8484 smacks not just of gross ignorance of the law but of the manifest BIAS and grave abuse of discretion of the prosecutors. I am reminded of what Kris Aquino has told me during the course of our professional relationship and during the height of her publicity stunts accusing me of qualified theft – “Nicko, malakas ako sa Taguig, San Juan, at Quezon City.” This was the reason why my lawyers filed a motion for inhibition in Taguig, which was denied, because the investigating prosecutor Atty. Claire Eufracia P. Pagayanan handling the case was an appointee of former President Noynoy Aquino, the brother of Kris Aquino. The Taguig decision is absurd and ridiculous when compared to the logic and findings of the Office of the City Prosecutors of Makati and Pasig, who we are grateful for not having buckled under the pressure of an Aquino. The prosecutors of the two cities have emphasized that there was no violation of R.A. 8484 because the credit card I used was in my name and was not stolen, lost, expired, revoked, canceled, suspended, or obtained with intent to defraud. The Taguig prosecutors seem to be lawyering for Kris Aquino when they found probable cause for estafa, a charge which was nowhere to be found in the complaint of Kris Aquino! Such decision violates my right to due process, where I have to be informed of the charges filed against me and given the opportunity to respond to the charges.
Taguig dismissed qualified theft clearly. So why did it find probable cause for estafa when that wasn’t the complaint of Kris Aquino? Lawyer na ba ni Kris Aquino ang Taguig prosecutors? Akala ko si Fortun? Ay wait, hindi minention ni Kris si Fortun. Si Divina pinasalamatan nya. Bakit? Eh si Fortun ang lawyer on record for the qualified theft cases. Haha away away na si Kris at Fortun! P.S. Taguig investigating prosecutor Claire Eufracia P. Pagayanan was appointed by PNoy in 2016 as Prosecutor II. #ArtecariaPower
In another post, Kris posted a typography that said, “I don’t have to attend every argument I’m invited to.”
“The tactics meant to provoke me taught me patience & the POWER of strategic silence,” Kris wrote.
