The lawyer of Deniece Cornejo talked about the recent legal battle against Vhong Navarro
Model-stylist Deniece Cornejo has no plan to withdraw the rape case versus It’s Showtime host Vhong Navarro.
The issue between Deniece and Vhong was revived following the order that the Taguig City Prosecutor’s Office received from the Court of Appeals to file a rape case against the Kapamilya actor.
Amid this new legal battle, Vhong insisted that he is innocent and he said that the only mistake that he did was cheating on his girlfriend back then, who is now his wife. His legal counsel also pointed out that in her sworn statement, Deniece stated that there was no rape that happened.
In a recent event, Atty. Ferdinand Topacio, the lawyer of the model-stylist was asked if there is a possibility that she will withdraw the case against Vhong Navarro, based on the article in Bandera.
“Well, I do not know, but as of now, based on my latest conversation with her over the phone, she’s determined to see this thing through,” the lawyer of Deniece Cornejo said.
When asked about how is the model-stylist now, Atty. Topacio said that she is in good spirits. He added that Deniece feels vindicated after the negative reactions that he received amid the issue.
The lawyer said that there is no one from the camp of Vhong Navarro who reached out to the camo of the model-stylist. He added that even though the actor-host will reach out to them, it will not change anything because they have been waiting for this to happen for eight years.
Atty. Topacio also said that it is just now that Deniece is starting to bounce back again and putting things in her life in their proper places since the case started in 2014. “Parang ayaw na niya, eh. I think she’s happy where she is. Nakatapos siya ng mga kurso and she has placed her life in the service of the Lord,” Deniece Cornejo’s daughter.
