MANILA, Philippines – For the first time since the brutal killing of young actor Ramgen Revilla Bautista in November, his girlfriend who survived the attack, Janelle Manahan, visited his grave.
For about an hour in the afternoon of Jan 15, 2012, Manahan was at the Angelus Eternal Garden in Imus, Cavite. She refused to talk about what she told her boyfriend of about five years.
Janelle was accompanied by her mother Rosario Quintano, friend Zarah Jacob, lawyer Argee Guevarra, and other family friends.
Manahan is the key witness in the murder of Bautista in his home last October 2011.
Bautista, a son of actor and former Sen Ramon Revilla Sr and a half-brother of actor and incumbent Sen Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr, died of multiple stab wounds and a gun shot.
Manahan, who was shot in face and shoulder, survived the attack.
She has also recently filed a complaint against Bautista’s mother, Genelyn Magsaysay, and four other siblings Gail, Ma Ramona, and two others for alleged violations of Republic Act 9995, or the Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009.
She appealed to the public to stop the circulation videos showing her and Bautista.
“One is enough, two [videos] is difficult already,” she told reporters who were at the cemetery.
