Basketball player Justin Rieta, one of the persons of interest in the Christine Dacera case, went to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) office in Manila yesterday, January 13.
Rieta was accompanied by her legal counsel to the NBI office.
Rieta was among the guests in Room 2207 of the City Garden Grand Hotel on January 1, 2021.
According to the basketball player, he did not find anyone else the day Dacera was killed.
It is also willing to cooperate in the investigation of the case.
“Hindi ko po kilala yung kabilang room [Room 2209]. Wala po akong kilala sa kanila,” said Reita.
On January 7, 2021, Galido said, “Nung nagising ako to check my schedule, mga bandang 2:30 a.m., si Tin lumapit sa akin, then she grabbed my hand, and sabi niya sa akin, ‘Sis punta tayo sa kabila. Check natin kung merong straight guy doon.”
“Ako naman, sinamahan ko siya, ‘tapos siguro mga five minutes, six minutes, bumalik din kami agad sa room.”
Galido asserted that everyone who checked into Room 2207 are gays. “Napansin nga namin yung mga tao sa 2207, wala naman guwapo ‘tapos mga matata… parang may age na. Bakla pero may mga edad na. Sabi ko, ‘Doon na lang tayo sa kabila, wala naman pogi dito.”
“So, pumunta na kami pabalik sa room namin to welcome the new year,” Rosales stated.
When Rosales was asked if he introduced or met this basketball player in 2207, he said. “Wala po kasi akong kilala at alam ko matatandang bakla sila, wala akong… sorry, sorry sa term pero, yeah, there’s… we did not see any straight guys there.”
