Ana Jalandoni intent on pressing charges against Kit Thompson for assault: 'Kit, fix yourself'

Ana Jalandoni is willing to forgive her boyfriend Kit Thompson for allegedly assaulting her, but said he must face the consequences of his actions and be a changed man.

"Kit, fix yourself," Ana Jalandoni said in a March 28 press conference.

It was Jalandoni's first time to publicly address the incident which happened last March 18 in a Tagaytay hotel. She appeared at the press conference with her lawyers, her father, and sister.

"Wala pong babae na gustong masaktan tulad ng dinanas ko," she said.

Jalandoni said she still has feelings for Thompson but she is nevertheless intent on pressing charges against him.

Aside from filing two cases for violating Republic Act 9262 or the Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act, Jalandoni's camp also filed separate criminal actions for frustrated homicide and illegal detention against Thompson.

“Hindi ko deserve iyong nangyari sa akin," said Jalandoni. "Di ko pa iniisip iyong balikan namin, ang importante po sa akin (ngayon) is iyong ipaglaban ko ang karapatan ko bilang babae."

Jalandoni's legal counsel Atty. Deanna Ang said they are also considering adding more cases.

"We feel na may kailangan pang maidagdag na kaso," Ang said. "The best we can do is i-gather ang mga ebidensiya at isa-submit namin iyan sa proper authorities."

Jalandoni said that there is no third party in their relationship and the dust-up happened after Thompson grew jealous of her ex-boyfriend with whom she was previously married to. She said they were married in the United States in September 2017 but they ended their relationship in January 2018.

"Akala niya iiwan ko siya," Jalandoni said, adding that they both had drinks that night.

Jalandoni said Thompson also threatened to kill her if she dumped him.

She added that the March 18 incident wasn't the first time that Thompson hurt her and that she's well aware of his "anger problem."
