EMBASSY OFFICIAL STATEMENT

EMBASSY OFFICIAL STATEMENT

Embassy regrets the unfortunate incident which occurred last 26 June 2008. Embassy as an establishment has never espoused violence of any kind. We denounce in the strongest terms the altercation which involved Messrs. Alex Vargas and Paul Montemayor.

We wish to clarify that, contrary to what has been reported in the media, Mr. Montemayor is not, and has never been an employee, of Embassy. In fact, Mr. Montemayor is a freelance emcee who performs in numerous clubs and establishments in Metro Manila, most of which are competitors of Embassy.

While we regret the incident, we acted promptly and appropriately to resolve the situation and assist Mr. Vargas. Pursuant to our establishment’s standard procedure, our security personnel acted immediately to protect Mr. Vargas and the other patrons during and after the incident. Mr. Vargas was administered first aid by our personnel and we had offered to call him an ambulance to take him to the hospital, although he declined the latter. Our personnel had likewise accompanied Mr. Vargas to the Philippine National Police (PNP) personnel stationed in front of our establishment to give him the opportunity to press charges against the individuals involved. He likewise declined to do so at that time.

We wish to reiterate that Embassy does not condone incidents of this nature and assures that it will take all necessary measures to ensure that such incidents are prevented in the future. We likewise wish to assure the city government of Taguig of our continuing support for its programs to maintain a positive image for the city.
