AdChoiceTV News — Lawyer Mike Santiago, representing Rommel Galido, John Pascual dela Serna III, Gregorio de Guzman, Clark Rapinan and Valentine Rosales – filed two sets of complaints with the Makati prosecutor.
He reiterated that his clients made “all legal steps to defend themselves and restore their honor and dignity in the community.”
Santiago asked the fiscal to charge Dacera’s mother Sharon, Dacera’s cousin Katherine Anne Facelo and Sharon’s friend and doctor Marichi Ramos Fong with perjury, libel, cyber libel, slander, malicious prosecution, incriminating innocent persons and intriguing against honor.
Dacera family spokesman and lawyer Roger “Brick” Reyes, Makati police acting chief Col. Harold Depositar, city police investigation unit chief Capt. Danilo Oamil and Dacera case investigators Cpl. Louie Lopez and S/Sgt. Jun Alimurong were also charged with the same offenses.
In another set of complaints, Galido and Dela Serna charged Sharon, Fong, Facelo, Depositar, Oamil, Lopez and Alimurong with unlawful arrest, illegal detention, unjust vexation and grave coercion.
According to their 13-page complaint-affidavit, the five men accused Sharon of “shaming, embarrassing and ridiculing” them by asserting that they gave illegal drugs to her daughter Christine and raped her before she died on New Year’s Day.
