ANNABELLE'S ACCOUNT OF THE DECEMBER 6 INCIDENT. Bandang alas tres ng hapon nangyari ang insidente, na nasaksihan ng GMA-7 reporter na si Nelson Canlas sa Imperial Palace Suites (IPS).

Heto ang salaysay ni Annabelle sa affidavit:

"While at the lobby of IPS, the group of respondent Nadine was approached by Mr. Nelson Canlas ("Mr. Canlas"), a reporter from GMA-7.

"Initially, Mr. Canlas, talked to respondent John Doe policeman and inquired if they have a warrant of arrest.

"However, the respondent John Doe policeman replied, "Sir, Wala po. Nandito po kami para imbitahan lang si Ms. Annabelle."

"Again, Mr. Canlas made a follow-up question 'dapat meron po kayong warrant of arrest, kasi po sa akin ang dating e parang ina-aresto niyo siya.'

"Once more, Mr. Canlas inquired from respondent John Doe policeman whose orders they were following, but at this point, the policemen avoided his questions.

"Seeking answers, Mr. Canlas turned to the older man in civilian clothes and inquired if he is a policeman.

"He then introduced himself as a representative from the Quezon City Prosecutor's Office.

"Thereafter, Mr. Canlas asked him if he has a warrant of arrest or any form of writing that they can legally make me go with them.
