Vhong Navarro grateful for SC decision

-

COMEDIAN-HOST Vhong Navarro expressed his gratitude to the Supreme Court (SC), which had ordered the dismissal of two criminal cases filed against him by Denice Cornejo.

In yesterday’s episode of “It’s Showtime,” Navarro admitted at one point he was losing hope.

“Dasal ako nang dasal every day and every night na hopefully ay makuha ko na ‘yung minimithi ko, na matapos na itong pinagdadaa­nan ko. Kasi may mga panahon na akala ko, nawalan ako ng pagasa eh. Nawalan ako ng hope nung nasa loob ako. Pero hindi ako tumigil sa pagdarasal kaya eto na po, [ dininig] na po ng Supreme Court ‘ yung dasal natin. At nagkakaroo­n na po ng maganda ang ginawa nilang pagresolba sa kaso ko. Kaya maraming- maraming salamat sa Supreme Court. Maraming-maraming salamat sa aking l egal team na talagang nandiyan hindi ako pinabayaan,” Navarro said. He also thanked all those who believed in him.

“Of course, ABS-CBN dahil hindi ako iniwan, binigyan ako ng trabaho. Welcome ako rito sa ‘Showtime.’ Sir Carlo Katigbak, Sir Mark Lopez and of course Tita Cory Vidanes, maraming-maraming salamat.

I love you. Lagika yong nakaalalay sa akin. Of course, Direk Chito Roño, sa manager ko. I love you, boss, thank you so much. Sa Street Boys,” he said.

“At sa mga taong naniniwala sa akin, sumusuport­a sa akin, marami pong salamat.

Of course my family kay Tanya, kay Ice, kay Bruno, sa dalawang nanay ko, sa mga kapatid ko at sa mga kaibigan ko pa, maraming-maraming salamat,” he added. Navarro also said his faith in the country’s justice system was restored.

On Monday, the SC Third Division ordered the dismissal of rape and acts of lascivious­ness charges filed by Cornejo against Navarro, after finding the Department of Justice ( DOJ) had basis to junk the raps due to inconsiste­nt allegation­s.

In 2018 and 2020, the DOJ dismissed Cornejo’s complaints on the ground that the allegation­s suffered credibilit­y issues but the CA Fourteenth Division reversed the rulings, saying “it falls upon the trial court to determine who between Navarro and Cornejo speaks the truth.”
