Watch: Sugar (Ex-SexBomb Girl) breaks down over arrest warrant

Former SexBomb Girls member Sugar Mercado is crying foul over an arrest warrant issued by a Quezon City trial court in connection with a child abuse case lodged against her and her mother by her former husband, Kristoffer Jay Go.

Mercado, in a statement released by Gabriela Women’s Party through Facebook, questioned the decision of the trial court’s Senior Assistant City Prosecutor Dindo Venturanza to overturn an earlier recommendation to dismiss the child abuse charges.

She also criticized the move of Venturanza to junk the criminal case she filed against Go last November for violation of the Republic Act 9262 or the Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act.

According to Mercado, Quezon City Trial Court’s Investigating Prosecutor Flordeliza Lagasca suggested to have her child abuse case dropped. Lagasca also found probable cause for the filing of charges against Go, she added.

“Malinaw sa original resolution ni Fiscal Lagasca, dismissed ang kaso ng child abuse laban sa amin,” said Mercado. “Malinaw din ang kanyang original recommendation: sampahan ng 5 kaso sa paglabag sa RA 9262 ang aking dating asawa. Pero binalewala ang mga rekomendasyon ni Fiscal Lagasca.”


“Kami ngayon ng aking ina ang kinasuhan ng child abuse. At sa gitna ng matibay na mga ebidensya dinismiss ang kaso namin.”

Mercado then vowed: “Hindi ako natatakot. Haharapin ko lahat ng mga kasong isasampa nila laban sa akin. Lalaban ako. Ipaglalaban ko ang karapatan ko para sa mga anak ko.

“Ipaglalaban ko ang hustisya na nararapat para sa akin bilang biktima ng pang-aabuso. Baliktarin man nila ang mga pangyayari, gamitin man nila lahat ng kanilang pera, lalaban kami ng aking buong pamilya.

“Hindi pa tapos ang aming laban. Umaasa kami na papanig sa katotohanan at papanig sa karapatan ng kababaihan ang korte at ang piskalya. Ang laban ko ay laban ng lahat ng mga babaeng tinatakot, sinasaktan, inaabuso at ninanakawan ng dignidad at ng karapatang mabuhay ng marangal.”

On Thursday, Gabriela filed a motion for reconsideration in Mercado’s behalf to protest the arrest warrant issued by Venturanza.

“It is an outrage that the courts are now party to the anguish that victims of violence and their families are subjected to. We join Sugar Mercado and her family in standing up against this injustice,” said Gabriela Women’s Party Representative Arlene Brosas.

 

Watch here:

 

Mercado earlier claimed that she has been receiving “physical, emotional, and economical abuse” from her husband since 2010, and that Go has been repeatedly making threats against her life and her family’s.
