Former Bureau of Internal Revenue Commissioner Kim Henares denied Gretchen Barretto's accusations that she fixed a tax problem of one of Kris Aquino's close friends.
Alice Eduardo is a businesswoman and is also known to have many close friends in showbiz.
In Gretchen's January 18 Instagram Live, she said that during Noynoy Aquino's term as president, Kris intervened to lessen Eduardo's tax.
In a previous report by KAMI, Gretchen called Kris "Queen of all fixers."
Henares was appointed by Kris's brother, former president Noynoy.
In a Facebook post, Henares said that Gretchen's allegation is straight out of a comedy script.
She also advised Gretchen to be more careful with her statements.
"The allegations of Ms. Baretto that people can come to me and fix their tax problem without paying the right amount is straight out of a comedy script.
"It is a well-known fact that not even my own family enjoyed any preferential service or treatment, much to their disappointment.
"I strongly suggest that Ms. Baretto apply more restraint and thoughtfulness in her statements."
This statement was confirmed to be from Henares through a text message she sent to PEP.ph.
Henares is currently the personal accountant of Kris.
Kris Aquino is the daughter of the late former President Cory Aquino. Her father is the late former Senator Ninoy Aquino.
She is also the sister of former President Noynoy Aquino, who was succeeded by President Rodrigo Duterte.
The “Queen of All Media” has a son with Philip Salvador named Josh and a son with James Yap named Bimby.
