Why did Ellen Adarna not appear at the preliminary hearing of the case filed against her?
Ellen Adarna’s legal counsel Attorney Rebo Saguisag revealed the reason why the actress was absent again at the preliminary hearing set for the case filed against her over the “Pap” issue.
Previously, Ellen Adarna sparked reports when she posted a video of a fellow customer in a ramen restaurant on social media. According to her, the said customer has taken a video of them first. As per a report, it was found out that the said customer, Eleila Santos, is a minor.
Based on another report, the parents of the minor that was involved in the “Pap” issue took legal action after the actress failed to make a public apology. At the first preliminary hearing of the case filed against her, it was the actress’ boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz who showed up.
The hearing was rescheduled and Ellen Adarna’s camp was given another chance to respond to the charges filed by the parents of the minor.
However, recently, Ellen Adarna was absent again at the preliminary hearing of the case filed against her. Speaking to Pep, Cinema News, GMA News, and Celebrity Aksyon, Atty. Rebo Saguisag revealed the reason why his client could not appear at the hearing.
According to the actress’ legal counsel, there is a medical certificate and she is “advised against any form of travel”.
“Parang may nabanggit dun na under normal fetal weight. Magaan yung bata masyado… Hindi pinapabiyahe ang aming kliyente,” he said.
Based on the report, aside from the advice from the doctor, Ellen Adarna’s legal counsel also expressed that the actress is still in the process of mourning after his father Alan Modesto Adarna passed away.
The camp of the actress reportedly appeared for the hearing of the case to be reset on July 9. According to Atty. Saguisag, they do not want to force her to travel and to get stressed as she has a “difficult pregnancy”.
