The veteran actress, Maricel Soriano requested to reschedule the hearing on the physical and verbal abuse complaint filed against her, by 2 domestic helpers.
It was postponed after officials of Barangay Poblacion, Makati granted the said request.
Soriano was a no-show at the barangay hall, to the dismay of media men and spectators who went to the area and waited for the actress’ arrival.
She did not appear personally, but instead sent her staff, identified as Ian Benedicto, to hand over a letter prepared by her lawyer to the barangay officials.
May Cachuela and Camille Acojedo, who were the complainants also expressed dismay over the delay, because they could not afford to stay longer in Manila due to financial problems.
Cachuela and Acojedo ran away from Soriano’s condo unit after the actress allegedly physically and verbally abused them.
The 2 household helpers also admitted that their recruiter called them, if they were willing to just settle with Soriano.
