Singer-businesswoman Claire de la Fuente, mother of one of the accused in the Dacera case, expressed gratitude for the financial support their camp received days after they appealed on social media.
Flight attendant Christine Dacera reportedly died due to ruptured aortic aneurysm after a night of New Year’s Eve celebrations at the City Garden Grand Hotel in Makati City.
The individuals she partied with that night were accused of rape and homicide despite anomalies in the initial probe of the Philippine National Police.
Amid the ongoing investigation, the camp of the accused launched a Facebook page called Fund the Truth on January 9 to seek for legal aid on behalf of the suspects, namely, Gregorio “Gigo” de Guzman, Rommel Galido, JP Dela Serna, Clark Rapinan and Valentine Rosales.
Maraming Salamat po sa mga nag parating ng kanilang tulong sa aming mga Kaibigan. Sa mga may nais magbigay ng kanilang tulong ito po ang official G Cash account ng aming grupo.
Ngayon pa lamang ay nag taos puso po kaming nag papa salamat sa inyong lahat.
In an interview with ABS-CBN on Monday, De La Fuente, mother of de Guzman and de facto spokesperson of the group, thanked the public for the financial assistance they received, citing the donations reached six figures.
“Ang anak ko, kaya niya ang costs ng legal defense pero itong mga batang ito, wala namang masyadong kaya sa buhay for a long and costly legal defense, kailangan pa nilang mag-donation drive,” she said.
In a Facebook post on January 10, the group said that those who wish to donate may message the page privately to prevent from being scammed.
“Beware of Scammers! Please see below details on how to help #FundTheTruth. You may also send us a private message. Thank you so much!” the post read.
