Repost: Lorna Tolentino Worry Over the Way the Case of Mark Anthony Fernandez is Being Handled by Officers

The human rights of former matinee idol Mark Anthony Fernandez may have been violated when he was presented to the media Tuesday afternoon without a lawyer present, argued her stepmother, actress Lorna Tolentino. 

Speaking with ABS-CBN News' Mario Dumaual, the screen veteran said, without going into details, that she is currently consulting her legal team regarding the case of her stepson, who was arrested Monday evening in Pampanga for alleged possession of a kilo of marijuana.

Under the Republic Act No. 7438, or the Rights of Persons Arrested, Detained or under Custodial Investigation, "any person arrested detained or under custodial investigation shall at all times be assisted by counsel." 

On Tuesday, police officers interviewed Fernandez, who admitted that he uses marijuana for medical purposes as suggested by his doctor and father, without a lawyer in front of reporters. 

At one point, Pampanga Regional Police head Aaron Aquino suggested that Fernandez's doctor should be charged as well for telling the actor that he can freely use the illegal substance. 

Fernandez is represented by Atty. Sylvia Flores, who claimed to have not been informed by the police regarding the media presentation of her client. 

Meanwhile, action star Robin Padilla, Fernandez's uncle, said he was relieved when he learned that his nephew was not killed when he was being apprehended.

“Purihin ang Panginoong Maylikha, mahal kong Pamangkin... Nakahinga ako nang maluwag at naglulumuhod sa pasasalamat sa nag-iisang Dios na makapangyarihan at ikaw ay buhay, Mark. Hindi kami mapapatawad ng tatay mo kung may nangyaring masama sa iyo,” Padilla wrote.

He then thanked Director General Ronald "Bato" Dela Rosa and the Angeles City PNP for handling Fernandez’s case properly.

Fernandez, the son of actress Alma Moreno and the late actor Rudy Fernandez, claimed that the marijuana found in his car was planted. This, after admitting in an interview a day before that he bought the illegal substance for P15,000.

    1. true this. ang isa pang na-sad and na-bother ako is yung isang article na nabasa ko how he's trying to justify the use by citing his late dad's cancer. it was a new low. i still believe there should be better rehab programs though kasabay ng campaign ng current admin. wag naman puro pag-pupurge lang agad.

    2. Marijuana is legalized in US? It's proven to cure other disease and help cancer patient ease the pain. Some are even using it to calm nerves, shakiness and tremor so it's not a bad drug at all.

    3. Kaso nga 2:34 bawal pa dito sa pinas. At fyi hindi lahat nang state nang US eh legal ang ang MJ..

    4. i hope people of the philippines should stop saying that marijuana is legalized in the US as if it is legal in the whole of USA. because IT IS NOT. like it is legal in washington state for recreational and medicinal use but not in other states.

    1. isa pang ayaw ko din yung tipong ifocus pa ng mga reporters sa mukha nung celeb yung camera na parang pinapahiya talaga gaya ng ginawa nila kay Mark, nakakababa ng moral, oo mali si Mark pero tao pa rin yun kasi. kinukuhanan habang nasa loob ng kulungan na parang basang sisiw. Hindi naman mamatay tao yun tsk. . .

    2. wala man lang kasi umasikaso n kamag anak agad takot ata kasi drugs yun charges dapat may umalalay man lng kahit hindi sila pumunta s presinto. Pina presscon ng pulis din agad kasi naman itong si Mark binibintang pa sa pulis na planted yun 1kilo MJ s knya. Dami nya sablay n statement kya ayan huli na. Dyan nahihirapan ang mga pulis hulihin mga artista aside from marunong umakting s camera eh gusto special treatment pa tsk tsk...

  13. He has the right to remain silent and have his lawyer but he entertained questions from the media without the presence of his lawyer. He definitely has a choice to decline or refuse to answer any question asked by the media and instead waited for his lawyer to speak on his behalf. These media people should also know this and would have not pressed him with any question when they know that he is not accompanied by his lawyer.

    1. I agree. He readily volunteered information to the police.

    3. Yan din pagkakaalam ko. The police can interrogate you for as long as they want unless humingi ang suspect ng lawyer, dun pa lang mateterminate ang interrogation. Binabasahan naman yan ng Miranda rights. Yung pagpresent sa media still police ang may authority jan again, unless di pumayag ang suspect at humingi ng lawyer.

      Delete
    4. @330 actually, ano kaya kung ikaw ang kasuhan?! Nakakalungkot na may mga taong kasing hina mo.

      Sana kung ang media marunong rumespeto sa kung sino mang suspect yan na walang abogadong kasama at sa iyong palagay ay hindi emotionally at mentally stable to answer accusations by him/herself dapat sila na mismo ang magkusa na huwag nang piliting magsalita. Minsan kasi nag-uunahan nalang maka-scoop ng balita hindi na inisip ang kapakanan ng kapwa.

  28. Definitely, no special treatment for celebrities. Still, Lorna is right. He should have had legal representation while being interviewed. The police should have known better. While I was watching the news, I kept wondering where the lawyer was. Tuloy, everything he has said will be used against him. I think they were so eager to show someone who is related to big time celebrities that they forgot to look into his basic rights. Tuloy, that might be a technicality that will be used to have him released from prison. When that happens, everyone will react naman. They will accuse the police of extending special treatment.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I agree. This could be argued as a violation of his rights. Binasahan din ba siya ng kanyang miranda rights? Did the police told him that he has the right to remain silent? Have a legal counsel while being interrogated? Baka nga he could be released from prison and his case thrown out because of technicalities.

    2. for sure naman binasahan sya ng Miranda rights. at saka common knowledge na yan..high sya nung time na dinakip sya so malamang hindi sya aware sa mga nangyayari..

  29. Mark should have been accompanied by a legal counsel during the presscon, that's the only issue here. Apparently, the assigned lawyer was not invited to the presscon.

    Mark us not a criminal, but a user. Unless he sells too? There is no excuse for drug use but some people are just too weak to resist and overcome it. But I don't think he's a bad person naman. Maybe misguided or no guidance at all. His parents separated when he was just little and both were probably too busy to look acter him and guide him. Alma was a working and busy mom, I remember seeing her in iloilo with Vandolph and Joey Marquez. I have cousins who have been useres for years, not pushers, with no criminal records whatsoever. Same thing, their parents were not home all the time and were gamblers pa. Wala talagang guidance from parents kaya ganun sila. Kaya medyo naaaaa ako kay Mark.

  30. Illegal ang marijuana sa Pilipinas. PERIOD. Kaya tigilan niyo yung pinupush niyong for medical pruposes 'yang MJ kasi sa Pilipinas pa rin ginawa at bawal 'yon. Edi sana nagpunta sa US kung kailangan talaga diba?

    Tapos nakakatawa/nakakalungkot kasi kapag tambay sa kanto ang ang nagdudrugs, patay agad, sasabihin pa ng iba na, "buti nga, salot yan" pero kapag sikat awang awa pa at sana raw mabigyan ng chance. 'Yung totoo.

    2. Sure ka ba 5:52 na pulis lahat ang pumatay sa "libo2" adik at pusher??? Ang bilis mo namang mamintang d mn lng sumagi sa isip mo na mga druglords o mga kasamahan lng nila ang pumapatay dn sa kanila??? wag ka masyadong nagpapaniwala sa pinapalabas sa mainstream media baks. Ang presidente na msmo ang nagsabi na kng may mga pulis mn na lumabag sa batas sa paghuli sa mga adik na yan kakasuhan dn sila.

  31. While everyone's commenting on Mark's rights, natutuwa ako sa relationship nilang lahat. When Daboy passed away, Alma was there. She was the one who faced the media. Ngayon si Mark ang nasa alanganin, Lorna's there too.
