Netizens couldn’t find the interview conducted by Luis Manzano with Claudine Barretto after Raymart Santiago’s legal team reminded the public about the gag order imposed by the court on the former couple.
It can be recalled that Claudine accused Raymart of running away with their money worth hundreds of millions of pesos.
“Ngayun since malaki na yung mga anak ko, Sabina wants to study abroad, Santino is in Brent, and alam naman natin kung gaano kamahal non, so parang… since hindi nya nabibigay yung support na inorder ng court, hindi nasusunod, parang yun yung sinasabi ng Mom mo ipaglaban mo,” said Claudine. “So this time malaki na yung mga anak ko inexplain ko na ok we have to… kukunin ko na ulit kung ano yung akin, we’re talking about hundreds of millions eh,” she said.
However, Raymart’s legal team said that it would be illegal for Claudine to speak about the case.
“We will not address, dignify, or respond to any statements made by Ms. Barretto regarding our client, for doing so is a breach of the Gag Order issued by the Honorable Court where the parties’ case for nullity of marriage is undergoing trial,” Raymart’s legal team wrote.
“The Gag Order dated 20 September 2023 of the Honorable Court directed that the parties refrain from expressing in any form, making any defamatory statement or comment, or answer questions pertaining to the other party, and from publicizing the same through print, broadcast media, or digital media. This Gag Order remains to be binding upon the parties,” they added.
They also urged Claudine to follow the gag order.
“We will ensure that all legal actions will be taken to protect our client’s rights. The truth regarding the matter will come to light in the proper forum. We continue to put our trust in the judicial system of our country, where due process, justice, and the rule of law have always prevailed,” dagdag warning pa ng mga abogado,” they said.
Meanwhile, Luis has yet to give any response to the statement made by Raymart’s camp.
