THE Carbon police will push through with the filing of a criminal case against the working student who allegedly faked her abduction in Barangay Pahina-Central, Cebu City.
Kristel Wety, 21, will face charges for “unlawful use of means of publication and unlawful utterances” contained in Article 154 of the Revised Penal code, or RA 10175, the Anti-Cybercrime Act of 2012.
“We will pursue the filing of charges against her so that it will serve as a lesson to all and so that it won’t be imitated by anyone,” Chief Insp. Jacinto Mandal Jr., chief of the Carbon police, said.
Wety allegedly faked her own abduction last Jan. 8, saying foreigners had taken her to a mountainous barangay in Cebu City.
She also claimed she was beaten up, but she couldn’t show any marks that she’d been hit.
Before that, Wety had allegedly lost P4,000, which the dean of her school entrusted to her as proceeds of books sold to her fellow students.
Wety, a working student, alleged that the money got lost after she placed it in a locker in school. (JOB)
