Lawyer of Deniece Cornejo to sue Vhong Navarro’s wife
ATTY. FERDINAND TOPACIO – The lawyer of model Deniece Cornejo is planning to sue the wife of actor-TV host Vhong Navarro.
In a tweet, Topacio shared that he’s now preparing contempt charges against Tanya Bautista Bautista-Navarro, the wife of Vhong and Atty. Alma Mallonga, the actor’s lawyer.
YesYesYo! is the official Twitter account of Atty. Topacio.
It can be recalled that it was on September 21, 2022, when Bautista spoke before the press wherein she defended her husband against accusations hurled against him, particularly on charges filed by Cornejo.
She’s also worried about the safety of her husband in case he will be transferred to Taguig City Jail.
Topacio, on the other hand, said in an interview with Manila Bulletin that the decision of whether he will be transferred to Taguig City Jail is not up to them.
The lawyer also explained the reason why Navarro should be transferred to Taguig City Jail.
“And the law is that an accused in a criminal case must be detained in the city jail within the jurisdiction of the court trying the case, which is the Taguig City Jail in the case of Mr. Navarro,” he said.
The camp of Navarro has yet to give any statement with regards to the plan of Topacio.
Meanwhile, the actor-TV host is currently being detained at the National Bureau of Investigation-Security and Management Section (NBI-SMS).
It was on Monday, September 19, 2022, when Vhong surrendered to the NBI Quezon City office to file bail on acts of lasciviousness warrant issued by Metropolitan Trial Court Branch 116 in Taguig City.
However, even before the bail process was completed, another arrest warrant was issued by the Regional Trial Court Branch 69 of Taguig City for r*pe.
