GMA Network denies meddling in Yasmien-Baron controversy

GMA Network is not meddling in the sexual harassment case of Kapuso actress Yasmien Kurdi against actor Baron Geisler. GMA Network also strongly disputes accusations made by the actress’ lawyer Ferdinand Topacio in a letter sent to GMA executives and in his interview published in the Inquirer.net last May 28.

Topacio had written GMA Entertainment TV vice president Marivin Arayata and assistant vice-president Lilybeth Rasonable complaining, among others, about the airing in GMA - 7 News of the story that his client “had withdrawn her complaint against Mr. Geisler”.

GMA Network through its vice president for legal affairs Attorney Dick Perez said that it stands by the news report which was aired on May 27 with a taped interview of Ms. Kurdi. If Ms. Kurdi is still pursuing her complaint, that means that she had changed her mind after the said interview. Atty. Topacio has no right to blame GMA for airing what Ms. Kurdi had said at that time.”

Atty. Perez also said: “We take strong exception to the allegation Atty. Topacio made in an interview with Inquirer. net that undue pressure was being exerted by certain persons connected with GMA to reconcile Ms.Kurdi and Mr. Geisler. This allegation is simply untrue and is rather reckless.”

Atty. Perez added: ” Contrary to what Atty. Topacio claimed, GMA never encouraged any face-to-face meeting between the parties, nor did we ask (or force) Ms. Kurdi to talk to Mr. Geisler’s lawyer.”

Atty. Perez asked Atty. Topacio to refrain from making baseless accusations and from spreading rumors against GMA and its officers, “otherwise we will be constrained to file such appropriate actions against you in order to protect our interests”.
