Atty. Rebo Saguisag , son of the late Senator Rene Saguisag and former executive director ng University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) is Ellen’s legal counsel , including Atty. Reggie Ukol at Atty. Des Ukol.
He stated that the medical certificate issued by the actress’ doctor says “any form of travel” is prohibited.
“Ayun na nga, may medical certificate, advised against any form of travel…Parang may binanggit dun na under normal fetal weight. Magaan yung bata masyado. Again, hindi pinapabiyahe ang aming kliyente…And as you know, she’s still in mourning after the death of the father.” (source pep.ph)
Alan M. Adarna, Ellen’s father passed away early June in Cebu due to cardiac arrest. The actress has stayed in her hometown since then.
Ellen’s cam has requested the hearing to be reset on July 9. However, Atty. Saguisag did not confirm if the actress would finally attend.
“May ibang paraan naman… She doesn’t have to go here…Kasi puwede naman yun, e, sumpaan yung kontra-salaysay sa piskalya sa Cebu, ‘tapos i-submit namin. However, pati yun, binawalan ng kanyang doktor.”
“Again, that’s the problem, she was advised any form of travel.
“Ayaw naman namin pilitin. Ayaw muna namin siya ma-stress.
“Medyo difficult yung pregnancy.” he said (source pep.ph).
