Vhong Navarro hindi nagpasindak kay Deniece Cornejo, muling ilalaban ang rape at acts of lasciviousness case
HINDI nagpasindak ang kampo ng TV host-comedian na si Vhong Navarro sa utos ng Court of Appeals (CA) sa Taguig Prosecutor’s Office na ituloy ang kasong rape at acts of lasciviousness laban sa kanya.
Ito pa rin yung reklamo ng dating modelo na si Deniece Cornejo laban sa komedyante na isinampa niya noong taong 2014.
Ayon sa legal counsel ni Vhong na si Atty. Alma Mallonga, hindi pa final ang desisyon ng CA at iaapela nila muli ang kaso ng Kapamilya comedian.
Maghahain daw sila uli ng motion for reconsideration sa korte para harangin at baligtarin ang naging desisyon ng CA. Gagamitin din aniya ni Vhong ang lahat para kontrahin ang reklamo ni Deniece.
“The decision is not yet final as Vhong Navarro will ask the Court of Appeals to reconsider the same. He will exercise all the other rights and remedies that are available to him under the law,” sabi ng abogada sa panayam ng “TV Patrol” kagabi.

Base sa 26-pahinang desisyon ng CA 14th Division noong July 21 (inilabas last July 31), inaprubahan ang petisyon for review na inihain ni Deniece. Kinontra nito ang resolusyon ng Department of Justice (DOJ) last April 30, 2018 at July 14, 2020.
“Cornejo decries attempted rape on the night of January 22, 2014 while Navarro denies any wrongdoing. We reiterate once more that the preliminary investigation is not the proper venue on the respondent’s guilt or innocence.”
“It was erroneous for the DOJ to deny Cornejo’s petition for review on the ground that her statements in the complaint-affidavits are inconsistent and incredible.
“In this regard, it bears to stress that the determination of probable cause does not depend on the validity or merits of a party’s accusation or defense or on the admissibility or veracity of testimonies presented.”
“Ultimately, it falls upon the trial court to determine who between Navarro and Cornejo speaks the truth. Cornejo decries attempted rape on the night of January 22, 2014 while Navarro denies any wrongdoing on his part.
“We reiterate once more that the preliminary investigation is not the proper venue to rule on the respondent’s guilt or innocence.
“Finally, it must be borne in mind that the admissibility or inadmissibility of the parties’ evidence should be ventilated before the trial court during the trial proper and not in the preliminary investigation,” ang nakasaad pa sa desisyon ng CA na pirmado ni Associate Justice Florencio Mamauag Jr., at sinang-ayunan nina Associate Justices Victoria Isabel Paredes at Mary Charlene Hernandez-Azura.
