I am a Singapore PR for 10 years, married with two kids and I would like to give my sincerest gratitude to Atty. Gino for helping me out with the case lodged against me.
I was falsely accused by our former Foreign Domestic Helper (FDH) of molesting her in May 2018 after my wife and I decided to terminate her service due to her bad performance and attitude. The only thing I can think of her reason for lodging a police report against me is to legitimise her action by running to an NGO that sheltered her when she ran away from our flat on the day of her departure.
Being a law-abiding person, I was scared and had no idea on what to do as I had no idea about the basis of the report. My wife then Googled “criminal lawyer” and found an article about Mr. Gino giving pro-bono service on Straits times. I tried calling a couple of other lawyers, at first but they initially asked for a deposit before anything else, which made me think that they’re only interested with my money. On the other hand, when I tried calling Mr. Gino, he did not ask for anything other than asking to possibly meet him to discuss my situation on the same evening I called him. He received me to his residence that evening and discussed the whole story. He did not only listen to my side but he showed empathy by putting himself in my shoes and making me feel that he’s a long-time friend than my lawyer representing me. From the way he talked and explained things to me, you would discern that he is a very experienced criminal lawyer with very sharp sense. I met him again after the police interrogation and talked to my wife before she was interrogated.
He and his team then took action by sending a representation letter to the AGC and after almost a month of agony, he informed me that the AGC had directed the police to take no further action against me.
The burden has been lifted off my shoulder and I can continue to move on with my life. This is my first time of being accused of such crime and I’m lucky to have found Atty. Gino. He is a gem in legal profession.
