To the singer Ricky Martin a restraining order was served by a Puerto Rico judge following a complaint by Domestic violence. The name of the accusing party was not disclosed because the country’s law protects victims of violence. “All false”, replies the singer on Twitter, denying all accusations. «I will face the trial with the responsibility that characterizes me “.
The first hearing was set for 21 July. «The statements that led to the restraining measure against Ricky Martin are completely invented and artfully built», They commented with People the singer’s lawyers. “We have full confidence that the truth will come out and for our client there will be full justice ».
THE details are not yet clear. It seems that the accusation would have come from a man with whom Martin would have had a relationship of a few months: «The parties have been linked for 7 months. They separated 2 months ago, but the accused does not accept the separation and often calls the accuser. Furthermore, the petitioner has seen him wandering around his residence on at least 3 occasions and fears for his safety “, reads the document filed with the Court and taken up by the Puerto Rican newspaper El Vocero.
In a live Facebook, Eric Martin defends his brother Ricky and claims that the accusation would have come from a nephew “with mental problems”: “I can’t believe my older brother is capable of what my nephew wrote and my nephew wrote it. I’m sure it’s all fakealso because this man has been fighting for several years with mental health problems ».
There alleged victim did not file a complaint with the police, but went directly to the court – as foreseen by Puerto Rican law – to ask for therestraining order which was later issued by Judge Cajigas Campbell of the Assize Court of San Juan. But, according to what he reports Telemundothe order, which orders Martin not to have contact with the alleged victim, has not yet been physically delivered because “the police have not been able to find him.”
