In a previous report by KAMI, a humble lawyer who is dropped off at her office by her father would often take a tricycle on her way home. She took to Facebook and recounted how she was told to buy a car because she was riding a tricycle. People would often tell her that a tricycle does not befit her and in response when would often just smile. For the humble attorney, she said that being a lawyer does not mean that she should look rich or have a car to justify her profession.

Meanwhile, the controversial SUV driver Jose Antonio Sanvicente did not show up at the preliminary investigation at the Mandaluyong City Hall of Justice. Christian Joseph Floralde, the security guard victim, came to the said investigation. Facing the press, the lawyer of the security guard, expressed his dismay over the non-appearance of the suspect. However, despite this, he believes that there is still justice.
