MANILA, Philippines — One of the 11 persons tagged in the death of flight attendant Christine Dacera is appealing to the public for donations and help them pay for their legal defense.

Valentine Rosales, who claims to be a close friend of Dacera, said he and his friends are “struggling to finance a lawyer” who will assist them in the case and defend them.


“I would like to ask for your help to raise funds for me and my fellow friends who are struggling to finance a lawyer in assisting us in this situation & effectively defend us. Any amount of donation will mean alot & will be appreciated. Thank you,” he said in a Twitter post on Saturday.

As of this writing, Rosales’ tweet got over 6,600 retweets and 20,000 likes.

Rosales, along with three other companions of Dacera on the night she died at a New Year’s party in a Makati hotel, have asserted their innocence amid claims by the police that the 23-year-old flight attendant was raped and killed.

Rosales, Rommel Galido, John Pascual dela Serna III and Clark Rapinan claimed Dacera died of natural causes and stressed that there was no foul play involved.

Galido, Dela Serna, and John Paul Halili were earlier detained by the police but were later ordered released by the Makati City Prosecutor’s Office.
