NABAWASAN ng alalahanin at pasakit si Kris Aquino nang matanggap ang resolution na ipinadala sa kanya ng Office of the City Prosecutor ng Quezon City na nilalaman nito ang pagka-dismiss ng dalawang kaso ng grave threats na inihain laban sa kanya ng dati niyang business partner na si Nicko Falcis at ng kapatid nitong si Atty. Jesus Falcis.
Ipinost pa ni Kris sa kanyang social media accounts (Instagram at Facebook) ang resolution na pirmado ni Senior Assistant City Prosecutor Rolando G. Ramirez na nakasaad na: “This resolves the complaint filed by Nicardo M . Falcis and Atty. Jesus M. Falcis III against Kristina Bernadette C. Aquino for two (2) counts of grave threats…
“Wherefore, considering the foregoing, it is most respectfully recommended that this complaint for grave threats against respondent Kristina Bernadette C. Aquino be dismissed for lack of probable cause.”
Kaugnay ito ng inihaing complaint ng Falcis brothers na umano’y pinagbantaan si Nicko na ipapapatay daw ni Kris base sa naging pag-uusap nila sa telepono noong nasa ibang bansa si Nicko.
Naglabas din ng press statement ang legal team ni Kris, ang Divina Law, na “The Quezon City Prosecutor Office issued a Resolution dated 01 April 2019 DISMISSING the complaint for grave threats filed by the Falcis brothers against Ms. Kris Aquino.
“The QC-OCP found the allegations of the Falcis brothers as incredible and contrary to human experience.
“Furthermore, the QC-OCP noted that the Falcis brothers did not present any evidence to support their complaint – other that their bare allegations. This only shows that ‘this complaint is just a pure case of harassment for the numerous complaints she (Ms. Kris) filed against the complainants.’
“The truth has finally come out. The cases against Ms. Kris Aquino were DISMISSED; while the Falcis brothers are now facing numerous criminal cases in court.
“Ms. Kris Aquino continues to believe in our judicial system. This recent resolution strengthens her belief.”
Mahabang caption naman ang inilagay ni Kris sa kanyang Instagram post: “SUMMARY: Baka sa haba ng sinulat ko nawala yung message, DISMISSED ang kaso nung Falcis brothers against me.
“It’s easy to judge others, i’ve fallen into that trap, too. But it’s HARD to LIVE that person’s life. Ang dami kong nabasa, narinig, at napanuod, mga hindi na mabilang na panlalait sa buong pagkatao ko. HOW DID I SURVIVE? BECAUSE I TOLD THE TRUTH.
“Allow me to express my heartfelt gratitude to the men and women of DIVINA LAW. But there are 4 people in particular who deserve my lifelong gratitude. Atty. Dean Nilo Divina, Junior Partner Atty @eloisy, Senior Associate @mcaxalan, and Senior Partner, and Kris legal team leader Atty Ricky @atty_buko dela Cruz. They respected my choices, they were brilliant in their knowledge of the (Philippines) legal system. And most of all, THEY BELIEVED ME & IN ME.
“I am PROOF, we are all flawed humans, but setting me apart from my legal adversaries, i immediately & bravely faced accountability for my actions.
Hindi ako nag pretend sa inyo na “perfect” ako… and we STUCK TO THE ISSUES.
“Higit sa lahat, hindi ko binastos ang pagkatao nila kagaya ng ginawa nila sa ‘kin. Dinaan namin sa tamang proseso at nagtiwala ako sa justice system ng Pilipinas.
“Mahaba pa ang LABAN. i am not prematurely celebrating, naipanalo namin yung kaso nila laban sa kin, alam kong mas titindi ang kanilang misyon na siraan at sirain ako at saktan ang mga mahal ko sa buhay.
“My tears fall while writing this post, because i shall never forget all the special people, na nung kinailangan kong magpakatatag, no questions asked- they generously gave me unconditional love, friendship, support, and prayers.
“To close, i’ll start with a quote. “i may not be able to solve all your problems, i know how painful it is & it’s been, so i won’t say you’ll get over it; just be assured that whatever life brings, i am with you… HINDI KA NAG-IISA.” Thank you from a girl who is unafraid to show her scars, because she knows: PROTECTING YOUR DIGNITY IS WORTH EVERY BATTLE. #laban”
Pagdepensa ni Nicko (sa settlement), sinalag ni Kris
UNEXPECTED pero nag-post ng komento si Nicko Falcis, dating business partner ni Kris Aquino sa Instagram post nito kaugnay ng pagka-dismiss ng kasong grave threats na inihain nilang magkapatid, Atty. Jesus Falcis laban sa Queen of All Media.
Ayon kay Nicko (@nix722), “Our family continues to pray for peace and justice. We both told our truths as the cases get dismissed one after the other since we both want to protect our families.”
Sinagot naman ito ni Kris ng, “hello nicko. To clarify, 2 of my cases got dismissed. 1 prevailed and i withdrew 2. But yung case nyo against me na dismiss, and the cyberlibel case against your brother tuloy. i am still the weird me who is now giggling after reading ‘pray’ sa comment mo- because i remember clearly- we were at a healing Mass in Greenbelt and nahagip sa video that you were seated texting while i stood solemnly & napansin ng mom mo hindi ka nakikipray because kinandong mo yung yellow birkin ko. Enough time for me has passed that the anger has faded. BUT i hope you realize that the boy who celebrated his birthday last week thought the world of you, and he’s been through enough hell… And yet despite your mom being a doctor-nag TRIP kayo sa mga karamdaman ko… the whole of IG can read this, kayo naman ang hindi sumipot sa mediation. So i am making this offer, we can meet at a neutral location with your lawyers & mine. We can talk like civilized individuals- let’s not involve our siblings. And who knows, maybe God wants peace for us all. Alvin’s numbers remain the same. Madali syang ma contact kung gusto mong matapos na ‘to.”
Sumunod dito ay nagpalitan na ng mga komento sina Nicko at Kris. Muli ngang komento ni Nicko bilang tugon kay Kris, “I love Bimb and Kuya, and I’ve shown respect and care for them all through out our experiences — good and bad po. I have never involved them in any way that will put them in harm’s way.”
Dagdag pa ni Nicko sa isa pa niyang komento, “our family kept asking for a meeting to fix all of this, unfortunately it fell on deaf ears… My mother has never been deeply shamed. I did my very best as your agent, following all your commands in sealing all the branded deals and investments… 26Sundays later, my prayers continue This experience made me search deep into my faith in Him as I continue to prioritize and protect my family first and foremost. I will message you today.”
Hindi naman ito pinalampas ni Kris at kinontra ang sinabi ni Nicko tungkol sa pagse-set nila ng meeting kay Kris. Ayon kay Kris, ”nicko can you please not lie to the people? complete ang timeline namin. The last meeting was supposed to be in Polo Club, Oct 30, 2018 both Atty Sig & Dean Nilo cleared their schedules to be able to attend that 5 PM meeting, hindi ako member, my sister Pinky is. She made the reservation. Your lawyer (atty ponferrada) said late the night before nung sana maaayos na- you had refused to sign a SPECIAL POWER of ATTORNEY to authorize your mom or your Ate to sign whatever settlement we could agree upon. So walang saysay ang paghaharap. Please naman- hindi kami ang nag matigas. Kayo ang nagpahirap nito. May i ask you 1 question- sa buong gulo ni minsan ba napagsalitaan ko ang nanay mo, ate mo, o kapatid mo ng kabastusan? Lahat na tinawag sa kin ng kapatid mo, at pinanigan ako ng mga prosecutor na may sapat na merit yung cyberlibel na kasong sinampa ko sa kanya… ngayon nag communicate ka kay alvin, pero kayo ang nagdidikta ng mga libre nyong araw. We got along because we were straight talkers. Walang bullsh*t sa tin. Ano bang naging desisyon ng prosecutor? Direct quote ha ‘there is likewise total absence of proof that complainant Nicko and his family took steps to ensure his safety… considering the financial resources and connection/influence of respondent to carry out her threat, this omission, again casts serious doubt on complainant Nicko’s claim.’ Tuloy ko lang ha- ‘Considering the present sorry state of complainants’ evidence against respondent, this complaint must be dismissed.’ Will i really still prioritize the wrongs you orchestrated against me when i just want to LIVE, a little healthier & make my sons happier? If you love your mom then surely my love for my sons is equal to that. The saddest part about this whole chapter, the ones we love most suffered the most.”
Samantala, wish naman ng maraming IG followers at supporters ni Kris na tuluyan na silang makapag-usap, magkasundo, at magkapatawaran ni Nicko nang hindi na sila mahirapan pareho.
