Veteran singer Claire de la Fuente is deeply pleading about the rape crime involving her son. The singer is appealing to Christine Angelica Dacera’s mother and netizens that her son is innocent of the homicide rape crime involving her son, Gregorio Angelo de Guzman and the other ten suspects.
“I feel sorry for her. Naintindihan ko totally ang nararamdaman niya, ‘yung rage, I understand that. Sobrang masakit para sa isang ina ang mawalan bigla ng anak. Di ko rin kakayanin,” de la Fuente told ABS-CBN News Tuesday afternoon, addressing her message also to netizens who have pre-judged the case. “Pero sana naman may balancing act, maging resonable tayo para ‘di tayo makasakit ng mga inosente at makapagbiktima ng ibang tao. Let’s not put innocent people in jail!”
Ang nanay ng biktima na nakatira sa General Santos City ay insinisiwalat niya na magkausap sila ng kanyang anak bago mag New Year’s Eve at sinabi pa na kasama niya ang mga kaibigan sa pagcecelebrate ng New Year’s Day.
Labis ang pag-aalala ni De la Fuente sa kanyang anak, na isang chef at fitness instructor at inaakusahan sa kasong homicide rape.
“This is so unfair but I know that God has a reason for all of this… The truth is on our side and I am confident na malulusutan ito ng anak ko,” she said, citing the fact that her son struggled to save Dacera’s life after she was found unresponsive in the hotel they stayed, hours after their New Year party.
“Siya ang nag-CPR sa kanya. Gusto niya talagang mabuhay ‘yung tao, kaya siya tumawag sa akin that time, “ she related. “Iyak siya nang iyak. He was so frustrated because he wanted to save her life but was not able to.”
De La Fuente is deeply saddened because his son seems to have been sentenced by trial by publicity and the other suspects.
“Pairalin naman natin ang logic! At hindi totoo na nagtatago ang anak ko. From the start, andiyan lang siya following police advisory.
At ano ‘yung case na provisional homicide rape? Ngayon ko lang narinig yon,” she bewailed. “Together with our lawyer, I am here to support my son!”
