MANILA, Philippines—Actor-host Vhong Navarro  found  another ally in  Senator   Ramon  “Bong” Revilla  Jr., who strongly condemned the  brutality  that  the actor had suffered in the hands of his attackers.

Revilla said he is not close to Navarro but as a colleague in show business,  he said he would  also  like  to know the real story   behind the actor’s mauling.


“Based  on what  we’re hearing,  he was really abused. To do something in his genital is just too much,” he said.

“If he really did something  bad to  the girl,  he  should have been  sent to  jail. But he  should not be treated like that,” said Revilla, referring to Deniece Cornejo, who accused Navarro  of  attempted rape.


Revilla noted that it was not the first time that Cedric Lee and his group, who were allegedly responsible for Navarro’s mauling,  got involved in a similar incident, citing the case of the businessman and former athlete David Bunevacz.

He said he himself had asked the  National Bureau of Investigation to  investigate the case of Bunevacz,  who had also been allegedly beaten up by Lee and his cohorts.

“Baka mamaya maulit pa. Mabiktima nya kung sinu-sino Kailangan matigil na yan,” said the senator.

Lee claimed that they beat  up Navarro after  they  caught  him on top of Cornejo at the latter’s condo unit  in Taguig last January 22.

“Let’s find out the truth because if the woman was indeed raped, that’s unfair for the woman. But if (Vhong) was treated badly that’s also unfair for Vhong. If they erred then both have to held liable,” Revilla said.
