Imee Marcos tells Gretchen Fullido, “Keri ‘Yan!”
Ilocos Norte Governor Imee R. Marcos expressed support for ABS-CBN news reporter Gretchen Fullido on the sexual harassment and libel cases that she filed against executives of the network.
“Ang tapang niya! Dapat suportahan siya ng ibang mga nabalitang nabiktima rin,” the Governor said over her radio program at DWIZ on Monday morning. “Mabuti at nabubunyag ang mga nangyayaring ganyan, nang ‘di na maulit pa.”
“Gretchen deserves our respect,” Gov Imee added. “Let us give her all the moral support and prayers that we can. No laughing matter what she has endured for three years in her workplace.”
“Keri mo ‘yan, Gretchen! Saludo kami sa tapang mo!”
Fullido revealed through her lawyer that news department executives have been sending her text messages “loaded with sexual innuendoes that amounted to requests for sexual favors.”
She further stated that when she rejected their advances, the two executives whom she named in her complaint retaliated and made it difficult for her to work as news anchor. She said the cycle has been going on for three years.
Fullido also filed libel cases against three other network executives for “besmirching her reputation” and publicly shaming her.
