Singer Erik Santos, Manager File Charges Against Jobert Sucaldito
The Kapamilya singer Erik Santos and his manager Erickson Raymundo have filed charges with 37 counts of libel against Jobert Sucaldito.
Santos and his talent manager have filed a couple of complaints against the radio host last March 30, 2017, before the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office due to Sucaldito’s malicious and offending Facebook post against the two.
The charges filed against Sucaldito has an alleged sufficient ground based on the joint resolution of Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office with a date of October 12, 2017. The resolution was signed by Investigating Prosecutor Julan Ilao and Senior Assistant City Prosecutor Jaime Villanueva.
On Tuesday (December 12, 2017), the social media site Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) was able to secure a copy of the resolution from the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office.
Here’s what is written in a part of the resolution:
““A careful scrutiny of the Facebook posts complained of disclosed that they were ostensibly made with malice tending to insult and tarnishes the reputation of Mr. Raymundo and Santos, and Cornerstone.
“The fact that Mr. Sucaldito is alleging that the company of Mr. Raymundo was undercutting projects from other people, employing underhanded means in order to book artists under his management, engaging in unfair competition, and becoming swell-headed, disparage the integrity of the latter.
“Further, the fact that Mr. Raymundo is the President and Founder of Cornerstone should be sufficient to prejudice Mr. Raymundo with Mr. Sucaldito’s accusations and allegations.
“These accusation smack of bad faith and reveal an intention to besmirch the name and reputation of Mr. Raymundo, as well as Cornerstone.”
The resolution states that Sucaldito attacked the alleged respective gender preference of Erik Santos and Erickson Raymundo. He also allegedly describes the two as gays.
