Nagpadala ng sagot ngayong Sabado, February 12 ang legal counsel ni Cristy Fermin na si Atty. Ferdie Topacio kaugnay sa statement ng abogado ni Dawn Chang na si Atty. Rafael Vicente R. Calinisan.

Narito ang kabuuan ng sulat ni Atty. Topacio para kay Atty. Calinisan:

“Dear Atty. Calinisan: “Our client, Ms. Cristinelli Salazar Fermin, a.k.a. Cristy Fermin, has referred to us your undated ‘statement’ released to media, which we take as an open letter of demand, for her to make a public apology in relation to utterances made regarding your client, a certain Dawn Chang, who appears to be a dancer and show business personality.

“Ms. Fermin will respond to your demand in due time, and also publicly. We write this letter, however, to make a demand of our own, regarding some statements made by you as a lawyer of Ms. Chang.

“In your signed public statement—shorn of irrelevant discourses—you called our client a ‘coward’ and a liar, saying that her statements are ‘nakakahiya,’ using the word ‘gutter’ to describe Ms. Fermin, describing her expressions as ‘malaking kabastusan.’

“Worse, you strongly implied that you have control of the Philippine justice system when you bragged that ‘we assure you, we will send you to jail.’

“I need not quote to you the specific provisions of the Code of Professional Responsibility that you have violated by using undignified and intemperate language unbecoming of a member of the legal profession in your exercise thereof, and in undermining the confidence of the public in the impartiality of our justice system.

“While a lawyer owes his client zeal in the protection of his or her rights, such zealousness must not outrun the bounds of decency and tread on the territory of the impertinent and contumelious.

“Regardless of your personal offense at what you may feel are libelous words against your clients, you, as a lawyer, still has the bounden duty to comport yourself in a manner consistent with legal ethics and the proper conduct of a lawyer.

“It is ironic that while you complain against libel allegedly having been committed against your client, you have committed the same crime against ours.

“Therefore, let us be the one to give you, Atty. Rafael Vicente R. Calinisan, a deadline of until midnight of 16 February 2022, within which to PUBLICLY APOLOGIZE to our client who, it cannot be denied, is already considered an icon in the field of entertainment media, and who has been a writer and radio and television personality for several decades.

“Unlike you, however, we do not demand the publication of your apology in a full-page ad in any newspaper. We simply demand a letter of apology from you, which you and she may share with media.

“Your failure to do so within the time given by us will leave us no choice but to file against you the proper criminal, civil and administrative complaints before the proper courts and the Committee on Bar Discipline. It would be to your best interests to heed this demand.

“Very truly yours, “Ferdinand S. Topacio”

Naka-text ng PEP Troika si Tita Cristy Fermin ngayong Sabado, February 12, at sinabi niyang magbibigay siya ng pahayag sa Lunes, February 14 sa kanyang radio program na Cristy Ferminute.

Bahagi ng text niya, “Sinabi ko na kay Arniel [Serato, PEP lead correspondent], yung Monday na lang ang pakihintay. Wala akong babawiin. Walang public apology.”

May ilang abogado ring nakausap ng PEP Troika na nagulat sa statement na iyon ni Atty. Calinisan.

Pero pinagdiinan ng veteran entertainment columnist na paninindigan niya ang lahat na mga sinasabi niya, at hindi niya ito babaguhin, lalo na’t hindi siya magbibigay ng public apology.

“Ano sila sinusuwerte? Hahaha!” text pa niya sa PEP Troika.

JERRY OLEA

Ang Dawn Chang issues ay nag-umpisa sa pahayag ni Dawn kontra kay Toni Gonzaga na nag-host sa proclamation rally ng UniTeam nina Bongbong Marcos at Sara Duterte noong Pebrero 8, Martes.

#Unbothered si Toni sa mga batikos sa kanya, at sa halip ay nagpasalamat sa kanyang 7M Instagram followers at 5M YouTube subscribers.

At di ba, top grosser ng MMFF 2021 ang pelikulang The ExorSis ng magkapatid na Toni at Alex Gonzaga, na prinodyus ng mister ni Toni na si Direk Paul Soriano?

Payanig ang bali-balita na bukod kay Willie Revillame, mamamayagpag ang mag-asawang Toni at Direk Paul sa AMBS Channel 2 ng mga Villar.

Nakuha ng AMBS ang frequencies ng ABS-CBN, at bulung-bulungan na may negosasyon upang ipalabas dito ang Kapamilya shows, at magtrabaho rito ang displaced Kapamilya employees nang mawala ang prangkisa ng Lopez-owned network.

Sa mga Villar din ang Camella Homes subdivisions, at biru-biruan na ang TV station ng mga Villar ay tataguriang Capamella Network.

Ano kaya kung maging bossing ng AMBS Channel 2 si Toni?

Maaatim kaya ng mga Kapamilya na maglingkod sa babaeng bida ng Star Cinema movie na My Amnesia Girl (2010)?

NOEL FERRER

Dawn Chang is Dawn Chang. Toni Gonzaga is Toni Gonzaga. And Nanay Cristy Fermin is Nanay Cristy Fermin.

Grabe ang epekto ng politika talaga, pati relasyon ng mga magkakapamilya at magkakatrabaho ay lubos na naapektuhan.

Ang lungkot lang ng nangyayaring ito, di ba?
