“…While the Writ of Habeas Corpus has become moot and academic with the release of the expelled minister and his family from their alleged detention at the INC compound in Quezon City, Menorca’s lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles said the case on the Writ of Amparo has to be resolved.
…She said Menorca is ready to face the INC leadership but they are still assessing the threats to him and his family and decide if they will allow him to attend the hearing.
…Angeles denied that they are illegally detaining Yanson, his client’s househelp, and forcing her to testify against the INC in today’s hearing.
…“She isn’t held against her will and galit na galit sya na ginagamit ang parents nya. She will be issuing a statement possibly on Tuesday. That’s really a lame move, ha. Where’s their case? It’s all acoustic warfare,” Angeles said.
…She believes that the recent illegal detention allegations being hurled against them are a supposed tactic of the INC not only to discredit them but also to threaten their witness from testifying today in the CA.
