Kapuso star Aljur Abrenica is being acussed by a 13-year old girl with acts of lasciouvness.
The girl, Michelle, accused Abrenica of sexually harassing her, touching her inappropriately on private body parts on 2 occassions during Holy Week at Puerto Galera. The girl claimed the incident occurred on 2 separate ocassions–April 10 and 11- and was witnessed by a friend and her sister.
Abrenica vehemently denied the accusation, claiming that he doesn’t personally know his accuser. He said in an interview though that he did run into them during those 2 days at the Puerto Galera when he was there with friends. Abrenica went on to say that they ( he and his friends) thought that they (the girl and her friends) were promo girls because they were selling some products on the beach. Aside form these encounters, he claims, nothing else happened between them.
GMA Network has released this statement regarding Abrenica’s case:
“GMA Network understands that the NBI is conducting its investigation of the complaint filed against Aljur Abrenica. The Network wants to assure the public that the company will not tolerate the acts of which Aljur is being charged. GMA Network on its own is looking into the veracity of the complaint. Until the results of the NBI’s and the Network’s own investigation are known, it is only fair to Aljur for the Network not to pass judgment on the truthfulness of the complaint.”
He was set to to appear yesterday at the NBI offices to formally answer the complaint.
