The former actress is constant to her stand that the social media influencer was the one who erred in this issue.

Obviously, Nicko is so delighted about the decision of the court and he immediately shared the good news on his Instagram account.

He shared an article from a popular showbiz site on his IG story. Then, Gretchen Barretto shared this.

Based on PEP’s report, here is the statement from Makati Prosecutor’s Office:

“After a careful examination of the records of the case, this Office is inclined to dismiss the complaints as there is no sufficient evidence to engender a well-founded belief that Falcis committed the crimes charged.

“Aquino asserts that by using the KCAP card to purchase the goods and services for his personal benefit, in violation of the trust that she has given, Falcis committed the crime of qualified theft.

“The office begs to disagree.

“At the onset, it is important to note that no evidence was presented with regard to any agreement between Aquino and Falcis as regards the use of the subject credit card.

“Accordingly, the basic rules is that mere allegation is not evidence and is not equivalent to proof.

“In preliminary investigation, the complainant bears the onus of establishing, through evidence, that more likely than not a crime has been committed and the respondent is probably guilty thereof, and should be held for trial.

“The complainant cannot rely on mere conjectures and suppositions.

“If the complainant fails to substantiate her allegations, her complaint must be dismissed for lack of merit.”
