Remember Krista Miller? Let us refresh your memory...
It looks like the sun isn’t shining on her right now.
ABS-CBNnews.com reports, "Controversial starlet Krista Miller, who was tagged in the separation of actor Cesar Montano and actress Sunshine Cruz last year, has been identified as one of the visitors of convicted drug lord Ricardo Camata during his stay at a hospital recently."
That means Miller is right smack in the middle of the probe on the New Bilibid Prison (NBP). The institution is currently under fire for the alleged special treatment of some high-profile inmates.
Miller visited her drug lord-friend on May 31. She supposedly stayed inside his hospital room for more than an hour. However, it was not clear if the two other men who accompanied her were in the room with them the whole time as well. Either way, what happened was a no-no. In fact, Camata wasn’t supposed to be in that hospital in the first place.
The report noted: "Camata’s confinement at the Metropolitan Hospital, supposedly to receive treatment for a lung ailment, was allowed by NBP Chief Supt. Fajardo Lansangan even without the consent of Justice Secretary Leila de Lima."
Lansangan has since been sacked, along with 12 jail guards who were accused of being in cahoots with him.
Chief Insp. Roque Merdegia Jr.-head of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Force (AIDSOTF) Legal and Investigation Division-had revealed that inmates like Camata live in luxury in prison.
Merdegia explained that when the Department of Justice (DOJ) had them conduct an investigation inside the NBP and they saw "luxury items like flat screen TV sets, air-conditioners, and mobile phones in some cells."
So, now the DOJ is considering summoning Miller to explain what she was doing with Camata.<> <>It’s really quite ironic, as Miller had co-starred with Montano in 2013’s The Turning Cradle: The Untold Story of Alfredo Lim. <> <>The starlet who was in a cop’s biopic is now allegedly involved with a certified criminal. Sometimes it’s really quite sad when life doesn’t imitate art.
