Gretchen Fullido accused Cheryl C. Favila & Maricar Asprec of sexual harassment.

ABS CBN News anchor Gretchen Fullido filed sexual harassment and libel cases against her Kapamilya colleagues. Gretchen formally filed that charges before the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office on October 5, Friday.

In her criminal complaints, Gretchen Fullido alleged that she was a victim of sexual harassment at ABS CBN. Named respondents in the case are former ABS CBN executive Cheryl Favila and segment producer Maricar Asprec.

Fullido alleged that Favila and Asprec sent her text messages which were tantamount to sexual advances. And when she declined, the two executives retaliated by using their position in the network.

“Fullido alleged that Favila and Asprec sent her text messages that were loaded with sexual innuendos, which amounted to requests for sexual favors,” Gretchen Fullido said in her complaint. She then alleged that Favila and Asprec “retaliated and made it difficult for her to work as a reporter and news anchor for TV Patrol.”

ABS CBN released the following statement on Gretchen Fullido’s sexual harassment case:

ABS-CBN respects the right of news anchor and reporter Gretchen Marie Fullido to bring her sexual harassment complaint to the courts. Now that she has filed charges with the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office, we expect all parties to allow the legal process to take its course.

ABS-CBN takes sexual harassment seriously and does not condone such acts in the workplace or by its employees.

When Ms. Fullido filed an administrative case against a supervising producer and a segment producer for alleged sexual harassment in November 2017, the company took prompt action on the administrative complaint and decided based on the evidence presented.

In connection with her sexual harassment case, Fullido also filed libel cases against Ces Drilon, Marie Lozan and Venancio Borromeo.
