MANILA, Philippines –- Actress Janelle Manahan clarified that she is not trying to pin down the Revilla family in connection with the murder of her former boyfriend Ramgen Revilla.

This comes after Ramgen’s mom, Genelyn Magsaysay, said in a separate interview that she is hurting because Manahan is accusing them to of being behind the slay.

In an interview with “The Buzz” on Sunday, Manahan said she is just seeking justice over what happened to Ramgen last October 28.

“Nung time na hiningan ako ng police ng side ko sa story, hindi ko ine-expect na sila ang magiging behind everything. Hindi ko intention na idiin sila. I’m not fighting against them. I’m only fighting for justice here,” she said.

Manahan said everything that is happening is also not easy for her.

“Iniitindi ko sila sa mga sinasabi nila and everything so sana intindihin din nila na 'yung laban ko dito. Hindi lang para sa sarili ko to, para kay Ramgen ito. Masakit din ito sa akin kasi naging pamilya ko rin sila. Hindi madali ito, hindi ko sila dinidiin,” she said.

Meanwhile, Manahan maintained her camp has nothing to do with Ramona Bautista being placed in the Interpol red notice list.

Bautista is Ramgen’s younger sister and is one of the suspects in last October's killing of his brother.

“Nagulat na lang din po kami ng mga abogado ko kasi wala po kaming kinalaman as to kung paano siya nailagay doon. That time na nalaman ko 'yun and ng lawyers ko, we didn’t even know kung ano ang magagawa nung pagkakalagay niya doon,” she said.

Manahan, however, said she is willing to talk to Ramona once she returns to the Philippines to know her side of the story.

“Yun talaga ang gusto ko mangyari kasi kaming dalawa ang nandoon. Gusto ko siyang intindihin. Gusto ko malaman kung saan nanggaling ang iba’t ibang kwento. Kung totoo man ito na sila talaga, gusto ko malaman bakit nila nagawa iyon sa kapatid nila,” she said.

“Sana umuwi na siya kasi siya ang missing piece sa kasong ito. Kung gusto niyang mabigyan ng hustisya ang kapatid niya, uuwi siya and kung wala rin talaga siyang kinalaman dito. Gusto ko rin lang marinig ang side ng story niya,” Manahan added.
