Queen of All Media Kris Aquino has posted on social media that the prosecutors of Taguig City recommended the filling of Estafa and Credit Card Fraud against her former business partner, Nicko Falcis. KAMI learned that Aquino received the decision through a “registered mail.”
“The Taguig City Fiscal is charging Nicko Falcis in court with Estafa and Credit Card Fraud,” Aquino said on Instagram.
According to the press statement by the Divina Law, the Taguig City Prosecutor was able to find a probable cause to charge Falcis with Estafa and a violation of the Access Devices Regulation Act.
The statement also said that the prosecutors found Aquino’s statement to be credible and that Falcis misused the corporate credit card of Kristina C. Aquino Productions (KCAP) entrusted to him.
In a report by the GMA News (authors Dona magsino and Nicole-anne c. Lagrimas), Falcis was accused of using P62.7 million from the credit card for his “personal benefit.” However, the Taguig prosecutors junked the theft complaint filed by Aquino to Falcis.
Falcis’ camp said that the resolution is “unjust,” as reported by the Philippine Star. They are planning to file for a motion for consideration or taking the case to the Department of Justice for a Petition for Review.
In a previous report by KAMI, Atty. Jesus Falcis, brother of Nicko, exclusively shared how the ongoing case has affected their family.
