The apology of Buboy Fernandez is not enough according to Getty Images after one of their photographer named Al Bello was attacked by Pacquiao’s (–foul word(s) removed–)istant trainer Buboy Fernandez and adviser Michael Koncz.
According to vice president/corporate counsel for Getty Images who wrote via email on Friday to the officials of the Nevada Athletic Commission demanding that boxer Manny Pacquiao and two of his aides be suspended for an alleged attack on one of its photographers.
Both Buboy Fernandez and Michael Koncz have already apologized to Bello but his company, Getty Images wanted something more and not just an apology.
The intriguing part of the part of the letter was the inclusion of Manny Pacquiao for those who were recommended to be suspended although the boxer was out in the cold during the incident.
Here’s part of the letter sent to the Nevada Athletic Commission:
“We expect that you will take all appropriate actions against Mr. Pacquiao and his entourage, and expect that such will include a significant suspension period. … We expect that you share our concerns with respect to the ability of the media to cover these events safely and will act accordingly. It is our view that an apology, while appropriate, is an insufficient consequence alone and will certainly not deter similar behavior in the future.”
