The Filipino was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead on May 31, five days after the incident, at the University Hospital Ruźjnov after sustaining fatal injuries.

While being escorted from court, the suspect said he “will be sorry for what happened for the rest of my life. But I don’t remember anything.”

The suspect faces manslaughter charges, punishable by seven to 12 years in prison.

Acorda’s family, however, continues to appeal to court to elevate the charges to murder.

Slovak Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini has also said that justice needs to be served for the OFW immediately.

“I hope we will not witness a situation where there will be no effective ruling one year from now,” Pellegrini said.
