PH #MeToo! APV Law handles Gretchen Fullido case against ABS-CBN execs, reporters
The Aceron Avila Vehemente &. Del Prado Law Office is currently handling Gretchen Fullido’s case against top ABS-CBN executives and reporters. The former anchor came out with a glaring testimony of the alleged sexual harassment done against her.
In the news release written by Atty. Marvin Aceron, Fullido filed a complaint of sexual harrassment, libel, and victim shaming. The abogado stated that Cheryl C. Favila, former ABS-CBN News Executive, and Maricar P. Asprec, ABS-CBN News Segment Producer sent his client innuendo-filled text messages that insinuate sexual favors that she rejected.
Fullido shared that it was a cycle of torment for her as the two did not take the refusal lightly. According to Aceron, libel cases are also filed against Ces Drilon, Venancio Borromeo, and Marie Lozano for victim shaming and ruining her reputation after she first decided to file a case.
Drilon has since responded to the allegations with an exclusive statement of her own. She belied the accusations and is filing a counter affidavit against Fullido for the wrongful statements against her.
Protecting the harassers? How sad for a journalist!
