The officials of Barangay Poblacion, Makati granted the veteran actress, Maricel Soriano’s request.
The actress requested to reschedule the hearing on the physical and verbal abuse complaint, filed against Soriano by her 2 domestic helpers.
Soriano was a no-show at the barangay hall much to the dismay of media men and spectators who crowded the area to wait for the former Kapamilya talent’s arrival.
Soriano was a no-show at the barangay hall and instead of appearing personally, Soriano sent her staff, named Ian Benedicto, to hand over a letter, prepared by her lawyer to the barangay officials.
Complainants May Cachuela and Camille Acojed expressed dismay over the postponement, saying they could not wait and stay longer due to financial problems.
Cachuela and Acojedo allegedly ran away from Soriano’s home after the actress allegedly physically and verbally abused them.
The 2 household workers also disclosed that their recruiter asked them about the case and if they were willing to just settle with the actress.
