PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) received a press release from the camp of Mary Christine Jolly's legal counsels, earlier today, September 18.
Titled “DEREK RAMSAY: A PUNK OF PORK IN THE PIGGERY OF MALE CHAUVINISM,” Atty. Argee Guevarra and Atty. Luke Espiritu lambasted actor Derek Ramsay, whom Mary accused of violating R.A. 9262 or Anti-Violence Against Women and their Children Act.
Mary and her lawyers are currently conducting a press conference at a restaurant in Makati, then they will proceed to the Makati City Prosecutor's Office later today to submit Mary's reply-affidavit.
Here is the full statement of the lawyers of Mary Christine (published as is):
Smarting from the demeaning and degrading portrayal by Mr. Derek Ramsay of his wife, Mrs. Mary Ramsay, as some "alcohol-wasted woman lying on a Makati sidewalk" who maniacally pursued him until he, however, decided to marry her, Mrs. Ramsay snapped back at the shameless prevarication, deception and misrepresentation by her husband of 12 years, with whom they share a child, Austin Ramsay, now, 11 years old.
Mrs. Ramsay together with her son, and accompanied by her counsels, activists-lawyers Argee Guevarra of Sanlakas and Luke Espiritu of Partido Lakas ng Masa, today proceeded to the Makati City Prosecutor’s Office to file her 21-page Reply-Affidavit in connection with the criminal complaint for violation of R.A. 9262 (Anti-Violence Against Women and their Children Act) which she filed against her husband.
Mrs. Ramsay, who kept her marriage silent for 11 years, revealed to the Makati City Prosecutor’s Office of her physical, emotional and psychological trauma of having been bruised, bloodied and beaten by Derek, of having been objectified as a sex slave to perform lurid sexual acts after being fed with Ecstacy by Derek; and of having suffered from the mental torture during her pregnancy caused by Derek’s incorrigible womanizing which included his very-public affair with then 16-year old Solenn Heussaff.
Taking up the cudgels for Mrs. Ramsay, Atty. Guevarra said that after listening to the shocking narrative of Mary and her son, Austin, whom the lawyer describes as "a smart and precocious kid," slammed Derek for "attempts to demonize his own wife, initially deny and later on conceal the very existence of his own child and for purveying sexist and chauvinist views of women as brainless automatons that do his bidding just because of a delusional self-image of having achieved an Adonis-like status in society."
According to Guevarra, "Derek Ramsay seems to have emerged from his Neanderthal cave bristling with chauvinism, inflicting his low regard for women in general and his wife, in particular."
Guevarra describes Derek as a "punk of pork in the piggery of male chauvinism" and took exception at the plight of his son, Austin Ramsay, who reels from a sense of abandonment by his father.
"Austin told me that he has been with his father for only 4 times over a 3-year period; and during such occasions, only to be bored by Derek’s proud display of his 6 pack abs and constant boasts about owning an R8 Audi and a Ferrari.
"Browsing through the internet, it appears that Derek has more girlfriends in a month than number of hours he spent with his son over a 3 year-period.
"Worst, his son moves around the city in a taxi cab with his mother while Derek has gifted no less than a multi-million peso Mini-Cooper to his girlfriend, Angelica Panganiban," Guevarra adds.
Atty. Luke Espiritu, on the other hand, emphasized that Derek should be exposed as a fraud.
"He lived out, and capitalized on the lie that he is a bachelor, consciously concealed his status as married with a child, and paraded his female trophies to the public and to the local paparazzi while ignoring his legal obligations to his wife and child.
"If Derek could lie and run away from his legal obligations for 12 years, he should very well not expect to inspire belief from any court of law or from the Office of the City Prosecutor."
Speaking as a proxy feminist in this case, Guevarra apportions responsibility for the reinforcement of anti-feminist stereotypes in society as purveyed by Derek Ramsay among those who patronize and sponsor his career.
Guevarra observes, "Derek banks from East to West on an image of being a financially responsible individual despite the fact that he invests on his carpark-ful of girlfriends and luxury cars rather than on the future and economic wellbeing of his own wife and child.
"He profits from being advertised as a guy who can go around dunkin any woman who falls for his donut-juicy appeal. He gets paid millions being carved out as a phallic symbol for Vicki Belo whose concept of manhood or womanhood is only skin deep. And of course, Derek had himself adopted as a handsomely paid Kapatid while in reality being an abusive husband to his wife, and an absentee father to his son.
"These companies transacting with Mr. Derek Ramsay will surely invite judicial scrutiny in a case being prepared against him,'" warns Guevarra.
