Samantala sa ginawang emergency meeting ng mga opisyal ng PAMI o ng Professional Artist Mangers Inc, noong December 3, napag desisyunan nito na bilang isang grupo ang pansamantalang pagpapahito at pakikipag trabaho ng kanilang mga talent sa actor na Baron Geisler.
PAMI OFFICIAL STATEMENT
"The Professional Artist Managers, Inc. ("PAMI") has called for an emergency meeting in response to the letter of complaint received from actor Ping Medina dated 30 November 2016 regarding an incident that happened during the shooting of a scene for the film "Bubog", involving his co-actor, Baron Geisler.
Ping Medina wrote that 'Baron urinated on my torso and face without my permission.' PAMI strongly condemns this disgusting act and behavior of Geisler.
After a thorough discussion and deliberation during the meeting, in the presence of Geisler's manager and PAMI member, Arnold Vegafria, PAMI unanimously arrived at the decision to inhibit all our artists from working withGeisler in any movie and television projects for an indefinite period.
PAMI received Vegafria's assurance that he will refuse to accept any projects until such time that Geisler is mentally fit and psychologically stable to resume his work as an actor.
In addition, Vegafria filed a formal complaint questioning the capacity of the movie's producer/director, Arlyn Dela Cruz, to exercise control and assume full responsibility on the set, that could have prevented this regrettable incident to happen.
As managers, when we send our artists to the set, it is with our complete trust that the producer and director will protect and ensure the safety of our artists. Therefore, we have also unanimously agreed to inhibit all our artists from accepting any projects involving Arlyn Dela Cruz.
As always, PAMI is together with the industry in aspiring for a healthy, safe and professional working environment."
Bahagi ng naging statement ang pag-asa ng PAMI na magiging maayos ang lahat pag katapos ng gusot na ito.
Sa panayam naman na sa Chairperson ng FDCP (Film Development Council of the Philippines) na si Liza Diño, umaasa siya ng isang diyalugo mula sa pamunuan ng PAMI, ito ay upang masuportahan, maging pantay at patas ang kanilang maging mga naging napagkasaunduan at kung dumaan ba ang mga ito sa legal na pamamaraan.
