The parents of the helper of expelled Iglesia Ni Cristo minister Lowell Menorca II yesterday lodged criminal charges against their daughter’s employers, whom they claimed to have held her daughter captive.
Candido and Rosalie Yanson went to the Department of Justice to seek the indictment of Menorca for allegedly keeping their daughter against her will.
The couple, who were assisted by lawyer Alex Avisado and two of their children, claimed that Menorca and his wife Jinky brought Abegail to Manila from Bulan, Sorsogon last July and have since not allowed her to see her family.
The Yansons refuted the claim of Menorca’s lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles that an agent of the Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group tried to “rescue” the nanny during the hearing on the Writs of Habeas Corpus and Amparo at the Court of Appeals last Tuesday.
