Here’s an update on the cyber libel case that Enchong Dee is facing
The cyber libel case that DUMPER Partylist Representative Claudine Bautista-Lim filed against Kapamilya actor Enchong Dee is progressing in Davao Occidental.
To recall, the said case against the actor came from his comment on the “lavish wedding” that the representative had in Balesin amid the pandemic. Enchong was just one of the celebrities who slammed Claudine’s wedding. The actor, in his now-deleted post, accused the congresswoman of using the money for drivers and commuters for her wedding.
Later on, the actor apologized for what he posted. However, November of this year, two months after that public apology of Enchong, it was revealed that he is facing a cyber libel case. He is being ordered to pay moral damages amounting to P500,000,000 and exemplary damages amounting to P500,000,000.
Claudine Bautista-Lim explained that at first, she had no plan of filing a case against the Kapamilya star. However, her family and the family of her husband were affected by the bashing. She also clarified that the case was filed last August and there was no funfair but it just so happened that this matter was brought out.
Based on the recent article by entertainment columnist Riel Mendoza in Abante, the holiday season of Enchong will not be that merry because the cyber libel case against him is progressing in Davao Occidental. With this, the location of where the case was failed will surely bring inconvenience for him when the hearing will eventually start.
The columnist also said that there were other two individuals who faced complaints but these were already dismissed. On the other hand, the one filed against the actor progresses. It was also said that the actor was advised not to speak anything regarding the case.
