Television and Production Exponents (TAPE) Inc’s lawyer, Atty. Maggie Abraham-Garduque revealed that they would present a big witness against Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon to defend themselves against the copyright infringment case filed against them by the legendary trio.
In an interview after the first hearing of the case at the Marikina Regional Trial Court on July 27, Atty. Garduque said that former TAPE executive Malou Choa-Fagar would testify against TVJ and former Eat Bulaga creative director Jenny Ferre.
According to her, they would present a witness to prove that Ferre was really an employee of TAPE Inc. and was hired to create segments for the production company.
They’re also planning to file charges against TVJ and Ferre.
Choa-Fagar was the chief operating officer of TAPE Inc. and stayed for 41 years in the same company.
Many observers believed Choa-Fagar who retired in 2021 also became intrumental to the success of Eat Bulaga and many hosts were known to be close to her.
That’s why many fans couldn’t believe that the former TAPE exec would testify against TVJ.
As of writing Choa-Fagar has yet to give any statement on the issue.
