Former PBB housemate Beauty Gonzalez arrested for ‘obstruction of justice’ in human trafficking case?

Island Sentinel, a news outfit focusing on parts of Region IV, reported Tuesday, November 19, that former "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate Beauty Gonzalez was arrested in Calapan City on Monday for "obstruction of justice."

In a statement given to ABS-CBN News on Thursday afternoon, Gonzalez's legal counsel, Atty. Charlotte Goco, said the "allegations [against the actress] are the result of pure misunderstanding."

"There is no case yet filed in court against her. The matter is still under investigation. We are confident that the legal process will eventually show the truth."

Gonzalez was reportedly held in custody by the Philippine National Police - Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) after she allegedly tried to help in the escape of her brother, Michael Ryan Gonzalez.

According to the Island Sentinel report, Michael Ryan was arrested last November 14 in relation to an alleged human trafficking case.

Quoting Police Supt. Ruel Atayde Ferrer, the report said Gonzalez "got the trust of CIDG men through the help of an unnamed police colonel, she enticed the authorities to let Michael leave the CIDG premises here for a moment to buy something outside."

"But as soon as [Gonzalez] got Michael inside her car which was being driven an unidentified male companion, they sped off to the Calapan port and boarded a passenger ferry boat, which has departed to Batangas City port," the report said.

CIDG personnel in Batangas, according to the report, were able to intercept Gonzalez and her brother's alleged attempt to escape.

Meanwhile, a post on Gonzalez's Twitter page on November 19 read, unedited: "Everything happens for a reason.. Back to work.. give me strength god.."

In another post on Instagram on Thursday, the actress also shared a photo of a script for the upcoming Star Cinema film, "Un-Love You." The accompanying caption read: "Back to work."
