Nagbigay ng update si Kris Aquino tungkol sa kasong isinampa niya laban sa dating business partner/manager na si Nicko Falcis. Pero according to her, huling beses na niyang magbibigay ng update tungkol dito.
Post ni Kris sa kanyang IG account, “Wisdom is knowing that my emotions affect my judgment... it has also taught me that when being provoked, my enemies cause harm and malign people they know matter to me... after this posting everything about my ongoing legal battles won’t appear on my feed.”
Iginiit din ni Kris na hindi niya intensyong gawing “trial by publicity” ang pagpo-post niya ng update sa kaso.
“As I said, hindi ito trial by publicity, social media, or followers. This is respect for the Philippine judicial system & respect for the honorable men & women of the DOJ, the RTCs, Courts of Appeal, all the way to the Supreme Court.
“Nanahimik po ako sa nangyari sa Makati at Pasig, hindi namersonal, ginalang ang desisyon at sinunod ang tamang proseso. I shall end there because alam kong matalino kayo.
“Lahat ng binato sa ‘kin na ‘power tripping’ my actions & the steps taken by my legal teams have proven all allegations WRONG. No need to ask questions that have very obvious answers.”
Nag-isyu din ng press statement ang legal team ni Kris (Fortun, Narvasa, Salazar) kaugnay ng dalawang warrants of arrest na inisyu naman ng korte kay Nicko.
“As of today, March 20, 2019, we have confirmed that two (2) warrants of arrest have been issued against Nicardo Falcis y Madarang, alias ‘Nicko,’ one by Branch 70 of the Taguig Regional Trial Court (RTC) for violation of Republic Act No. 8484, and another by Branch 117 of the Taguig Metropolitan Trial Court (MeTC) for estafa.
“A hearing was scheduled today at Taguig RTC 70 upon motion of Falcis’ counsel, asking for reliefs from the court. However, when the case was called for hearing, Falcis was notably absent and was only represented by his counsel.
“In both cases, no bail has been posted as of date. Falcis remains at large and continues to defy court orders for him to surrender.
“If you have any information on Falcis’ whereabouts, please inform any officer of the law or contact our office.”
