Vhong Navarro's Lawyer to Roxanne Cabanero's Camp: 'Hindi ako tanga. Ano 'to, lokohan?'

Posted on March 3, 2014 | 12:06 PM

Atty. Alma Mallonga, the lawyer of actor Vhong Navarro criticized the camp of Roxanne Cabanero for claiming that they did not mention a specific date of the alleged rape in the sworn affidavit submitted by Cabanero.

Vhong Navarro and Roxanne Acosta Cabanero

In an interview with Buzz ng Bayan which aired on Sunday, Atty. Mallonga said that she's not buying the alibi of Atty. Virgilio Batalla, Cabanero's lawyer, who said that they did not specify a date in Roxanne's complaint affidavit.

"Tingin ko, napako sila. May lumabas na mga ebidensya. Ngayon, nag-aadjust sila. Pero huwag mo sasabihin na 'yung reklamo nila, puwedeng anytime from April 24 to 27. Hindi 'yun totoo. Hindi kami bulag. Nabasa ko, hindi ako tanga, naintindihan ko ang nakalagay doon," she said.

In the complaint-affidavit, which was signed by Cabanero and Assistant City Prosecutor Richard Parras, it was specified that the alleged rape happened on "April 24, 2010 in Pasig City, near Astoria Hotel."

Atty. Virgilio Batalla earlier denied that his client's complaint-affidavit mentioned the specified date and said that the alleged rape incident happened anytime from April 24 to 27 in 2010. The change came after Vice Ganda confirmed that on the specified date and time of alleged rape, Vhong Navarro was with him in a concert at Island Cove resort in Cavite.

According to Atty. Mallonga, the sudden change of statements is an indication that Roxanne Cabanero's camp is lying.

"Hindi ito biro. Nanumpa ka, napaka-espesifico mo sa oras, panahon at lugar. Ano 'to lokohan? Lumabas ka sa media, nag-iiyak ka, siniraan mo si Vhong, tapos ngayon 'ay sorry, nakalimutan ko, hindi iba pala, mali ang nasabi ko,'" said Atty. Mallonga.

Vhong Navarro's camp is now set to file libel and perjury cases against Roxanne Cabanero. They are also finalizing the same complaint against Deniece Cornejo, who also changed statements saying that she was raped twice (read more here).

Atty. Lorna Kapunan on Deniece Cornejo Case: 'Wag naman natin babuyin ang batas'

Atty. Lorna Kapunan was interviewed on Buzz ng Bayan aired Sunday (March 2) to enlighten the audience about the Deniece Cornejo's revelation of being raped by Vhong Navarro twice.

Atty. Lorna Kapunan and Deniece Cornejo

"Hindi ka pwedeng magpalit-palit ng storya. Ang huwes, ang judge ay hindi na maniniwaa sa iyo unless may reasonable explanation kung bakit nagpalit ng storya, kagaya ng traumatized o selective memory. Wag naman natin babuyin ang batas, kasi ang kailangan lang malaman ng tao kung ano yung totoo at yung dapat parusahan ay parusahan na," said Atty. Kapunan.

Meanwhile, Vhong Navarro's lawyer, Atty. Alma Mallonga lambasted the camp of Deniece Cornejo for the sudden change of their statement. She said that Deniece lied and committed perjury. (Also read: Vhong Navarro's Lawyer to Roxanne Cabanero's Camp: 'Hindi ako tanga. Ano 'to, lokohan?')

Rhoanne Aguilar Denies Being Friends with Roxanne Cabanero

Posted on February 26, 2014 | 10:05 PM

Former Binibining Pilipinas candidate Rose Ann Uy Aguilar has denied being friends with Roxanne Acosta Cabañero, the woman who filed a rape case against comedian Vhong Navarro. This came after reports about Aguilar testifying against Vhong surfaced.

Rhoanne Aguilar

It can be recalled that Roxanne Cabanero, in her sworn affidavit, said that her co-candidate Rose Ann Aguilar (Rhoanne Aguilar in the affidavit) was outside the hotel with her pet bulldog after the alleged rape happened and saw her leaving Vhong's car. 

Rhoanne Aguilar revealed in a series of Twitter posts that she is friends with Cabañero, and that she does not know anything about the alleged rape in 2010.

"Just to clarify things. Roxanne and I, we're not friends "friends" and We dont hang out at all, I dont know anything about her and I just met her during the competition, we don't even communicate. I don't have her number and she doesn't have my number either. It just so happened the alleged incident happpened during the competition and it just so happened that I was outside the hotel at that time. I dont know if something happened at all. It's between Vhong & Roxanne."

Aguilar also clarified that the hotel they stayed in was not Astoria but Millenia Suites. She also said that she did not see Roxanne enter any car or disembark from any vehicle, contrary to Roxanne's claims.

"To everyone who's asking what hotel. Its not Astoria. Its Millenia Suites. We just joined the same pageant together. On the night of the alleged rape, I was at the lobby of Millenia Suites Hotel and I saw Roxanne enter the hotel. We said hello to each other and that is it. I did not see her enter any car or disembark from any vehicle. I just saw her enter the hotel on that night. This is the limit of my personal knowledge about this event."

In a Buzz ng Bayan investigative report, it was found out that Vhong Navarro was indeed in a concert with Vice Ganda in Cavite when the alleged rape happened according to Roxanne's claim. The show also revealed first that the pageant candidates were not housed in Astoria Pasig, contrary to Roxanne's sworn affidavit.

Deniece Cornejo Changes Statement, Says Vhong Navarro Raped Her Twice

Posted on February 23, 2014 | 9:38 PM

Model Deniece Cornejo revealed that Vhong Navarro raped her twice. According to her, the comedian violated her on the 17th of January then it was followed on the 22nd, the day Vhong was mauled by the group of Cedric Lee.

Deniece Cornejo said she was raped twice by Vhong

"I initially did not say anything about the rape on the 17th because I was very ashamed about it. I did not want everyone to know that Kuya Vhong had entered me and had forced himself upon me," Deniece Cornejo said in her counter-affidavit submitted Friday.

In her first sworn affidavit, Deniece said that Vhong raped her on January 22 which was seen by Cedric Lee and group, the reason they mauled the comedian. It was also the day they brought Vhong to the police station to file for a blotter.

However, Vhong Navarro in his sworn statement revealed that Deniece gave him a pleasure down there during their meeting on January 17. According to Vhong, Deniece texted her after the incident saying 'bad boy ka' to which Vhong replied 'bawi ako next time.'

Vhong then received 'sweetie' messages from Deniece, who according to the comedian wanted to meet him again at once but Vhong was busy then so he scheduled it on January 22.

According to Deniece, she was forced to divulge the alleged rape on January 17 because Vhong lied saying that she voluntarily gave him oral. She also said that the CCTV footage given to the NBI was "unauthenticated, evidently tampered and altered."

Meanwhile, Vhong's lawyer Atty. Alma Mallonga, said it was clear that Deniece Cornejo lied in her counter-affidavit and that Deniece's admission on the alleged January 17 rape will damage her credibility.

Buzz ng Bayan Slaps Roxanne Cabanero with Evidences in Investigative Report (February 23)

ABS-CBN's Buzz ng Bayan aired an investigative report on February 23 about Roxanne Cabañero y Acosta and the new rape case she filed against comedian Vhong Navarro. Buzz ng Bayan presented Roxanne's sworn affidavit vis-à-vis statements and evidences that will support or falsify Roxanne's claims.

Roxanne Cabanero

After presenting Roxanne Cabanero's background according to the people she has worked with in the past and her interview with Doris Bigornia of ABS-CBN News, Buzz ng Bayan dug deeper into the issue with its own investigation from where Vhong Navarro first met Roxanne Cabanero up to the whereabouts of the It's Showtime host at the time Roxanne claims she was raped.

In an interview with Astoria Plaza Hotel's project director Ric Valenzuela, it was revealed that Roxanne Cabanero nor the Slimmer's World Miss Bikini Philippines 2010 candidates were not checked in on the said hotel, contrary to what Roxanne said in her affidavit. 

Pets were also not allowed in the said hotel according to Valenzuela, so there's a question on Roxanne's claim that her co-candidate, who was with a pet dog at the time, saw her coming out of Vhong's car after the rape incident.

Buzz ng Bayan host Boy Abunda also interviewed Gwen Villanueva, manager of Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park where Vice Ganda's April 24, 2010 concert was held. Villanueva confirmed that the concert started late and she said that she saw Vhong Navarro performed and stayed until the end of the show.

Boy Abunda also interviewed Vice Ganda who also recalled that the concert started around nine or half past nine of April 24, 2010 and ended around midnight. He also confirmed Vhong's participation in the concert just like what Villanueva said. Watch the said interview here.

The balanced reporting of Buzz ng Bayan was lauded by netizens, who were enlightened about this new rape case filed by Roxanne against Vhong. Some netizens also expressed their disgust on Roxanne Cabanero, who according to them was lying based on the evidences presented.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Roxanne Cabanero challenged Vhong to prove where he was on the night she was allegedly rape before she respond to new developments on the case.

Roxanne Cabanero on Vhong Navarro Guesting on Vice Ganda's Concert: 'Prove it to me'

Posted on February 22, 2014 | 2:49 PM

Aspiring beauty queen Roxanne Cabañero y Acosta challenged comedian Vhong Navarro to prove where he was on the night she was allegedly rape before she respond to new developments on the case.

There are reports that Vhong Navarro was a guest performer on Vice Ganda's concert held April 24, 2010 at the Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park in Cavite. The said concert titled "May Nag Txt, May Show Ako" happened the same date Roxanne Cabañero claimed she was raped by Vhong based on her sworn affidavit.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Roxanne said, "Prove it to me. I-prove niya muna kung nasaan siya noong araw na 'yon. At babalikan ko, sasagutin ko ang tinatanong niya."

On social media, netizens expressed their doubts about the alleged rape incident which happened in Pasig. They based their judgment on several evidences proving that Vhong was present in the said concert.

A press release from Island Cove’s website dated April 6, 2010 and a poster showed that the concert was scheduled to start at 8 p.m. A photo sent to ABS-CBN News by Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park on Friday has confirmed that the concert of Vice Ganda with Vhong Navarro as guest indeed took place on the specified date.

Meanwhile, Kean Cipriano, who was also a guest performer on the said concert, posted a tweet 2:20 am of April 25, 2010 confirming that the concert ended past midnight. 

A YouTube video uploaded by user wharzeek also showed Vhong Navarro staying until the end of the show. There's also a YouTube video showing host Vhong Navarro in the April 24, 2010 episode of It's Showtime plugging the said Island Cove concert.

Vhong Navarro is yet to speak up about this new evidence. However, his lawyer Atty. Alma Mallonga confirmed that Vhong knows Roxanne but the comedian did not specify how they got acquainted. She also said that no rape happened.

Cedric Lee to Deniece Cornejo: 'Ang sarap mo kasing rape-in'

Businessman Cedric Lee explained on Friday the CCTV video which caught him kissing Deniece Cornejo inside the elevator hours after his group mauled Vhong Navarro in Forbeswood Heights condominium in Taguig.

Cedric Lee on Deniece Cornejo kiss

In a statement Cedric Lee gave to the media on Friday after the preliminary investigation at the DOJ on the cases filed by by Vhong Navarro, (which was attended by both Lee and Cornejo together with Bernice Lee and bodybuilder Zimmer Raz), Cedric claimed that he just kissed Deniece in jest, saying that she was "delicious enough to be raped." (Check out the video here)

"Wala talaga, kaibigan ko lang iyun... parang nakipag-harutan lang ako sa kanya. Parang binibiro ko siya na 'ang sarap mo kasing rape-in eh.'"

In a previous interview, Cedric Lee admitted that he kissed Deniece in the cheeks just to comfort her. He added that it was normal for them to kiss like that since they're friends and what happened that night was just 'harutan' or playful kiss between him and Cornejo. 

Cedric Lee also insisted that he has no romantic relationship with Deniece, saying that a girl like Deniece who has a somewhat chubby body was not his type.

In another interview, Deniece Cornejo said that the kiss was nothing but an innocent gesture and it's just a manner of thanking Cedric Lee and other friends who helped her clean up the condo unit where the mauling incident happened.

Lee on Friday, also expressed his ill feelings towards ABS-CBN Channel 2 which according to him did things to make him bad in the eyes of the public (watch the video here).

Although the cases filed by Vhong Navarro against Lee et al. were already submitted for resolution, a hearing at the DOJ will still be done on February 28 since other persons involved like Jed Fernandez, JP Calma and other John Does are yet to give their counter affidavits.

Vhong Navarro in Vice Ganda's Concert the Night He Allegedly Raped Roxanne Cabanero?

Posted on February 21, 2014 | 5:10 PM

Comedian Vhong Navarro's alleged new rape victim Roxanne Cabañero y Acosta mentioned in her sworn affidavit that she was raped by the It's Showtime host on the night of April 24, 2010. She also said that she met Navarro on the ABS-CBN noontime show when they guested as contestants of Slimmer's World Miss Bikini Philippines the same day.

Vhong Navarro and Roxanne Cabanero

According to Roxanne, a staff got her number for Vhong and later in the afternoon, she received a text message from the comedian who suggested that they meet at her hotel room in Pasig. However, Roxanne refused so Vhong picked her up at the hotel around 10:30 to 11:30 pm of April 24.

The rape, according to Roxanne, happened inside Vhong's car which was parked under a shaded tree a few meters away from the hotel. She said she can't leave the car even if she wanted to because she was afraid of Vhong and his bodyguards/driver who were just waiting outside.

Meanwhile, there are reports that Vhong Navarro was a guest in Vice Ganda's concert the night of April 24 along with Calla Lily's Kean Cipriano and the Streetboys. The said concert allegedly happened at the Island Cove in Cavite. Posters and press releases from the organizers said that the concert starts at 8 pm.

A video which was uploaded on YouTube showed that Vhong Navarro was indeed in the concert scene, which according to some ended at past midnight, basing on Kean Cipriano's tweet posted 2:20 am of April 25 which reads, "just got home from island cove. congrats VICE GANDA and Vhong. you guys are the best!"

Many netizens dismissed the possibility of the rape since Vhong was seen at the concert the night (and perhaps the time) Roxanne said she was raped and it was impossible that he flew from Cavite to Pasig just to do the act. They compared it with the alleged 'one-minute rape' of Deniece Cornejo.

Vhong Navarro and his camp are yet to confirm whether the comedian really had a guesting in a concert held April 24, 2010. Kean Cipriano and Vice Ganda are also yet to released statements about this latest evidence.

Roxanne Cabanero: Vhong Navarro's Alleged New Rape Victim is Former Bb. Pilipinas Candidate

Posted on February 20, 2014 | 12:18 PM

After Deniece Cornejo, here comes another self-confessed rape victim of actor/host Vhong Navarro. Atty. Virgilio Batalla named the victim as Roxanne Cabañero y Acosta.

Roxanne Cabanero filed a rape complaint against Vhong Navarro on Wednesday at the Pasig City Prosecutor's Office. According to her lawyer, Roxanne was raped by Vhong in 2010 and decided to file a case now after learning that Deniece Cornejo has filed the same complaint against the comedian.
Roxanne Cabanero, the 24-year-old Venus Raj dead ringer is a graduate from a University in Cebu and has joined several pageants representing Cebu and her hometown Davao. She joined Miss Resorts World 2010 and Miss Bikini Philippines. Her supposed biggest pageant was Bb. Pilipinas 2011 if not for a controversy that led to her disqualification.

According to reports, Roxanne was disqualified from the roster of Bb. Pilipinas official candidates due to alleged nude photos which surfaced online. Roxanne has since denied that she was the girl in the controversial photo and even sought the help of NBI to identify the blogger who uploaded the photo.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Cabanero said that she she was asked by a BPCI lawyer to just drop from the competition, which she found unfair as she was the victim of the incident.

Roxanne Cabanero is on the spotlight once again after filing a rape case against Vhong Navarro. According to her lawyer, Cabanero approached him five days after the Vhong Navarro-Deniece Cornejo controversy erupted (read more here).

Roxanne Cabanero Files Rape Case vs Vhong Navarro

As expected by Vhong Navarro's camp, another woman filed a rape case against the It's Showtime host. A certain Roxanne Cabanero y Acosta, believed to be disqualified Bb. Pilipinas 2011 candidate Roxanne Cabanero, formalized the complaint February 19 at the Pasig City Prosecutor's Office.

In a phone interview on Aquino and Abunda Tonight on Wednesday night, Roxanne's legal counsel Atty. Virgilio Batalla said the alleged rape took place in 2010. (Watch the interview here)

"Ang biktima po ng rape ay may 20 taon para mag-file ng kaso. At ang kliyente ko ay 4 na taon lamang (pagkatapos noong nangyari), kaya hindi gaano katagal iyon," the lawyer said.

Atty. Battalla  is the chairman of Lingap Pinoy Foundation which gives free legal services to those who can't afford a lawyer. According to him, Roxanne had the guts to file the case today because she was inspired by Deniece Cornejo, and felt that the rape can happen again if tolerated.

Meanwhile, Vhong Navarro's lawyer, Atty. Alma Mallonga downplayed the new rape complaint and said that the allegations are irrelevant and not unexpected because some weeks ago, Cedric Lee already pointed out talking to some women who are also alleged victims of Navarro. (Watch the interview here)

"Gusto lang namin sabihin na kahit naman sino ay puwede mag-kaso. Ang tanong ay kaya mo ba patunayan iyung paratang? May ebidensya ka ba?" Atty. Mallonga said in a separate interview on Aquino and Abunda Tonight.

Atty. Mallonga also responded to what Roxanne's lawyer said that the new case was inspired by Deniece Cornejo's allegations against Vhong.

"If you're saying that you were inspired by the rape complaint of Deniece, alam na natin na hindi iyun nangyari. Impossible dahil nakita natin sa ating dalawang mata na hindi iyon nangyari, that you cannot rape who was not there. You cannot witness a rape when the victim is not even there," she said.

According to Atty. Mallonga, Vhong is aware of the new rape complaint and this made him more determined to fight for truth and justice.
