| March 26, 2015 | 0 Comments

Due to the unruly behavior of actress Melissa Mendez last March 20 from a Cebu Pacific flight from Manila to Pagadian City, the veteran actress is now facing a slander case after businessman Rey Pamaran, whom she slapped over an argument on seat assignment, rejected her apology and filed a case against Mendez before the Pasay City prosecutor’s office and asked for damages worth P3 million (P2 million for moral damages under the provisions of the Revised Penal Code, P500,000 for nominal damages, and another P500,000 for litigation costs).

Rey Pamaran Files P3M Suit vs Melissa Mendez. According to Atty. Raymond Fortun, “Mr. Pamaran is suing because of the humiliation that he received at the hands of Ms. Mendez while on board Cebu Pacific. He was cursed at for more than 45 minutes, his hair pulled, his arm pinched and his right cheek hit in full view of more than 100 passengers, most of whom were from Pagadian and who personally knew him and/or his family“.

He added that his client sued Mendez “because of the lies she made in an afternoon talk show that depicted him in a negative light”.

Melissa Mendez Slander Case

Rey Pamaran sued Melissa Mendez of slander and seeks P3-M for damages.

Meanwhile, Melissa Mendez apologized to Rey Pamaran on Tuesday, saying “this incident has caused a lot of pain and trouble to my family, as well as to the other party involved. I am owning up to my mistake“.

Posted in his Instagram, Rey Pamaran rejected her apology and decided to pursue the case, saying, “I was hoping for a more heartfelt reply, where she would not only apologize, but also own up to the lies that she said on TV to defend herself while destroying my reputation. However, in the spirit of the coming Holy Week, I am giving Ms. Mendez one more chance to clear everything in detail, including all the lies that she said about the incident“.

Rey Pamaran also said he wanted Mendez to apologize on national television because that is where she destroyed his name, saying, “making statements thru social media just adds insult to injury“.

I’m not on anybody’s side, but you know, sometimes, “less talk, less mistakes”. Since Ms. Mendez decided to apologize, she should do it in the first place. Not just explain her side, and added more sauce to the incident and made it more controversial. It’s even better to just let go and accept one’s mistake wholeheartedly and move on, since the other parties have said, they’re willing to forgive as well. If she needs to personally say sorry, and if she thinks that’s the right thing to do, then she should do it.
