/ 02:33 PM January 26, 2015

MANILA, Philippines–“File a case,” Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said in response to an open letter of actress Kat Alano saying that she was raped by a “public figure.”

“She has to file a case, and then it will start at the prosecutor’s office. Let the prosecutor assess the case, assess the evidence kung meron talagang rape. Ganun naman ang ginagawa for each and every rape case na finafile sa prosecutors office,” De Lima said Monday.

Alano claimed that her assailant was allowed to go free under De Lima’s jurisdiction.

The former DJ did not identify the assailant but said several rape cases had been filed against him but he was released and the complaints were dismissed.
