The lawyer and manager of actress Jennylyn Mercado expressed disappointment over the decision of a Quezon City court to acquit the former personal assistant (PA) of Jennylyn, Rowena “Mel” Pulmano of qualified theft charges.
“I feel sad for Jen because justice was not served her. Just because Mel was acquitted does not mean she did not commit the crime.” said Atty. Joji Alonso. “Dismayado kami sa naging desisyon ng presiding judge, pero hindi kami titigil hanggang hindi namin nakakamit ang hustisya para hindi na makapaminsala pa kahit kelan si Rowena Pulmano.” said Jen’s manager Becky Aguila. Jennylyn on the other hand has yet to issue a statement.
