Lilibeth mentioned in her speech that she will fight for every right of those in the production industry so that the same tragic incident would never happen again.
She also claimed that the death of Eddie was caused by “negligence,” and she even stated that the Kapuso network should have made the working environment safe for the old actor.
“Categorically, I state that Eddie Garcia’s death was caused by gross negligence and unsafe working environment and absence of medical team on the set. Unfortunately, TV network GMA should have made the working environment of the 90-year-old Eddie Garcia safe for his work,” she stressed.
“If it takes his untimely death to prevent future threats to actors, stuntmen, and others inside the various production sets… then I, together with the members of Garcia family, will fight until the end to get the rights and protection of his colleagues in place,” she added.
In a previous article by KAMI, a lot of netizens lambasted and blamed the Kapuso network for the death of the 90-year-old celebrity.
