MANILA, Philippines — The Quezon City Prosecutors Office has dismissed the two counts of grave threat complaints filed by Nicko Falcis and his younger brother Jesus against Kris Aquino.
Aquino announced the news Friday in an Instagram post showing the resolution dated April 1, 2019 she received at her house and the statement of her lawyers from Divina Law.

SUMMARY: Baka sa haba ng sinulat ko nawala yung message, DISMISSED ang kaso nung Falcis brothers against me. It’s easy to judge others, i’ve fallen into that trap, too. But it’s HARD to LIVE that person’s life. Ang dami kong nabasa, narinig, at napanuod, mga hindi na mabilang na panlalait sa buong pagkatao ko. HOW DID I SURVIVE? BECAUSE I TOLD THE TRUTH. Allow me to express my heartfelt gratitude to the men and women of DIVINA LAW. But there are 4 people in particular who deserve my lifelong gratitude. Atty. Dean Nilo Divina, Junior Partner Atty @eloisy, Senior Associate @mcaxalan, and Senior Partner, and Kris legal team leader Atty Ricky @atty_buko dela Cruz. They respected my choices, they were brilliant in their knowledge of the 🇵🇭 legal system. And most of all, THEY BELIEVED ME & IN ME. I am PROOF, we are all flawed humans, but setting me apart from my legal adversaries, i immediately & bravely faced accountability for my actions. Hindi ako nag pretend sa inyo na “perfect” ako… and we STUCK TO THE ISSUES. Higit sa lahat, hindi ko binastos ang pagkatao nila kagaya ng ginawa nila sa ‘kin. Dinaan namin sa tamang proseso at nagtiwala ako sa justice system ng Pilipinas. Mahaba pa ang LABAN. i am not prematurely celebrating, naipanalo namin yung kaso nila laban sa kin, alam kong mas titindi ang kanilang misyon na siraan at sirain ako at saktan ang mga mahal ko sa buhay. My tears fall while writing this post, because i shall never forget all the special people, na nung kinailangan kong magpakatatag, no questions asked- they generously gave me unconditional love, friendship, support, and prayers. To close, i’ll start with a quote. “i may not be able to solve all your problems, i know how painful it is & it’s been, so i won’t say you’ll get over it; just be assured that whatever life brings, i am with you… HINDI KA NAG-IISA.” Thank you from a girl who is unafraid to show her scars, because she knows: PROTECTING YOUR DIGNITY IS WORTH EVERY BATTLE. #laban
“The QC-OCP found the allegations of the Falcis brothers as incredible and contrary to human experience,” the statement read.
“The QC-OCP noted that the Falcis brothers did not present any evidence to support their complaint other than their bare allegations,” it added.
The Falcis brothers previously filed the complaint against Aquino after the actress allegedly threatened Nicko over the phone in September 2018.
Aquino then filed a counter-affidavit seeking to dismiss the complaint in February 2019.
Despite her camp’s victory in this particular case, Aquino said she knows it is still going to be a long fight.
“Mahaba pa ang LABAN. i am not prematurely celebrating, naipanalo namin yung kaso nila laban sa kin, alam kong mas titindi ang kanilang misyon na siraan at sirain ako at saktan ang mga mahal ko sa buhay,” Aquino said.
“My tears fall while writing this post, because i shall never forget all the special people, na nung kinailangan kong magpakatatag, no questions asked- they generously gave me unconditional love, friendship, support, and prayers,” she added.
Aquino and Nicko are in an ongoing legal battle after the former filed criminal complaints against the latter for allegedly using funds from her company, Kris Cojuangco Aquino Productions (KCAP), for his personal expenses.
Prosecutors in Makati, Pasig and Taguig have already dismissed the complaints filed by Aquino against Nicko for “lack of evidence.” /muf
