Enchong Dee Naghihirap Na Nga Ba Dahil Sa Cyber Libel Case Laban Sa Kaniya? Alamin!

Published

Enchong Dee is just one of the few celebrities in the Philippines who’s not afraid of getting his image tarnished. He’s been very vocal when it comes to controversies and issues that the government faces.

However, it appears that the actor is no longer vocal as he continues to stay silent about the issue involving his tweets against Congresswoman Claudine Bautista-Lim.

It was back in August 23, 2021 when Congresswoman Claudine Bautista-Lim filed a 1 billion peso cyber libel case against Enchong Dee at the Office of the Provincial Prosecutor in Davao Occidental.

Congresswoman Bautista-Lim is known as the representative of the Drivers United for Mass Progress and Equal Rights or DUMPER party list.

The controversy started when the photos from the extravagant wedding of Congresswoman Bautista-Lim and her husband Jose French “Tracker” Lim surfaced the internet. The wedding photos were taken at the Balesin Island Club Resort in Polilio, Quezon back on July 28, 2021.

According to the cyber libel complaint filed by the congresswoman, she admitted how shocked she was after receiving multiple messages from her friends and family. Later on, she found out that celebrities Enchong Dee, Agot Isidro, Pokwang and Ogie Diaz had called her out on social media for spending too much on her wedding.

She stated, “True enough, when I checked their twitter accounts, thru my husband’s legal counsel, they each lambasted me for my wedding.

“This they did, even if I do not know them personally. I have no personal or professional dealings with them in the past or present.

“Yet, they had the audacity to post something against me based only on hearsay.

“None of them were present at my wedding day nor a privy to the expenses for my wedding.

“Yet, they attacked me as if they have personal knowledge of the expense for my wedding.”

Congresswoman Bautista-Lim also defended herself and stated that she’s not really fond of attending parties or gatherings that attract the public’s attention and so she never expected to receive such remarks from Enchong Dee.

She added, “There is not even a speck of a reason for them to attack me for celebrating a once-in-a-lifetime-and-a-childhood-dream-wedding of every little girl.

“Truth be told, it was even a private ceremony not meant for public consumption or feasting.

“No media outfits were even present to flaunt or publish the ceremony as the same was strictly private.

“It was only for my and my husband’s loved ones, families and close friends to enjoy and remember.”

Bautista-Lim stated that what made it worse is that she was accused of being corrupt and insensitive for celebrating their once in a lifetime wedding in an extravagant way.

She added, “There is not even a speck of a reason for them to attack me for celebrating a once-in-a-lifetime-and-a-childhood-dream-wedding of every little girl.

“Truth be told, it was even a private ceremony not meant for public consumption or feasting.

“No media outfits were even present to flaunt or publish the ceremony as the same was strictly private.

“It was only for my and my husband’s loved ones, families and close friends to enjoy and remember.”

Enchong Dee has already released a public apology regarding the controversy but Congresswoman Bautista-Lim still pushed through with the complaint and stated that he was not really sorry for what he has done.

She said, “He was not sorry to me and for the damage that he has done. He just wants to deflect, albeit unsuccessfully, this criminal charge against him.

“This does not do any good for him. It only bolstered and magnified his admission of guilt beyond reasonable doubt for his un-provoked and baseless libelous remarks.

“After damaging my name, dignity and honor, ENCHONG DEE realizing this forthcoming criminal charge, attempted to un-scramble a scrambled egg, so to speak, by removing his original post and tweeting the following [apology on Twitter].”

Meanwhile, the netizens had different opinions regarding this matter. Although there were some who believe that she was wrongly accused of being a corrupt and insensitive, there were also a few netizens who defended Enchong Dee.

One netizen even said, “When u are an elected official and you throw an extravagant wedding party during a pandemic, naturally the people will comment . @enchongdee777 said it.”

Another Twitter user wrote, “This case against Enchong Dee is ludicrous. Claudine Bautista-Lim should, as a representative of PUVs, should not have an ostentatious wedding in the first place. Public officials are using the law to weaponize and create fear towards dissent and criticism–vital for a democracy.”

Meanwhile, the netizens believed that the case is reasonable except for the compensation amount.

One netizen wrote, “it’s reasonable for claudine bautista to bring enchong dee to court for cyber libel— but compensation worth one BILLION pesos? 🤨

“girl even if his tweet gave you actual cancer, an STD, and took away your first born child, 1B pesos is not a reasonable amount to ask for.”

Another netizen added, “The libel case against Enchong Dee has merit, but ₱1B damages is an exaggeration. The fact that he immediately retracted his statement and apologized is already a libel defense as it’s mitigating circumstance to lessen the damages.🤔”

Pag-aaway ni Baron Geisler at asawa nito, viral! Baron kailangan ulit ipa-rehab ayon sa kanyang misis?

Kasama sa mga naging topic sa “Showbiz Update” vlog ni Ogie Diaz kasama ang kanyang mga kaibigan na sina Mama Loi, Tita Jegs, at Brena ang viral na video ng pag-aaway ng aktor na si Baron Geisler at asawa nitong si Jamie.

Ang nasabing video ay in-upload mismo ni Baron sa kanyang Instagram account ngunit agad ding binura. Dahil dito ay usap-usapan na aksidente lamang itong nai-post at hindi sinadya.

Ayon kay Ogie, makikita sa video ang pagtatalo ng mag-asawa kung saan nakahiga si Baron sa isang kama habang nagsesermon si Jamie.

Kwento niya, “Nasa kama si Baron tapos parang tumatalak ang misis niya at ang sabi, ‘Ano? Gusto mo magpasaklolo? Tawagan mo ‘yung sugar mommy mo. Ano? Gusto mo magpaano sa gwardya?’”

Sa galit ng asawa ni Baron ay binato siya nito ng isang container na mayroon pang laman na sabaw. Kumalat ito sa kanyang binti at sa kama kung saan siya nakahiga.

“Oh my God! What is this? Sinong kailangang i-rehab?” gulat na reaksyon ni Baron sa ginawa ng asawa.

Ayon pa sa kay Ogie Diaz, maaaring ang ibig sabihin dito ng aktor ay hindi siya ang dapat na ibalik sa rehab kundi ang kanyang misis dahil sa ginawa nitong pagbato sa kanya.

Natanong naman ng mga kasama ni Ogie sa nasabing vlog kung ano ang maaring rason sa pagtatalo ng dalawa gayong nagbagong buhay na ang aktor at nagbalik-loob na sa Panginoon.

Sagot ni Ogie, maaring hindi pa tuluyang natatalikuran ni Baron ang pag-iinom ng alak dahil mayroon siyang nabalitaan na hanggang ngayon ay nag-iinom pa rin ang aktor paminsan. Nauunawaan niya naman daw dahil hindi madaling umiwas sa nakasanayan na.

Aniya, “Ako ha, feeling ko lang. Kilala ko si Baron. E hindi, hindi pa rin makakatiis si Baron, iinom at iinom pa rin yan. Akala ko nga completely healed at completely reformed na si Baron.”

Sa huli ay sinabi ni Ogie na wala rin siyang ideya kung ano ang maaring pinagtalunan ng mag-asawa. Hayaan na lamang daw na ang dalawa ang magpaliwanag nito.

“Panget naman, para tayong mga Marites dito na naghihinu-hinuha kung ano ang naging cause ng kanilang away pero hayaan mo na sila ang magpaliwanag niyan,” dugtong pa ni Ogie.

Pinayuhan na lamang niya ang mga ito na ayusin ang mga problema nang pribado at huwag nang i-post sa social media upang hindi na pagpiyestahan ng publiko.

24-year-old Matthew Langley was skin and bones and only a few days away from death when he was rescued in their home in Sheffield.

According to the reports, his mom and step-father were imprisoned for locking him in the attic for seven months. What made it even worse is that they starved hom.

43-year-old Lorna Hewitt and her husband Craig who’s 42 years of age, were arrested after they were found guilty of falsely imprisoning Matthew in the attic.

When Matthew was rescued, he was extremely dehydrated and only weight six stones. The room where he was locked in was covered both in vomit and feces.

Judge Michael Slater described the mother’s actions towards the autistic son as ‘a grave abuse of trust between a mother and her son’ during the sentencing that was held at the Sheffield Crown Court.

The judge also added, “You were the primary carer for Matthew with all his difficulties and challenges.

“It makes it all the more inexplicable to me that for those seven months you failed to provide him with the support and provision of food and drink that he craved and needed.”

The couple who were arrested denied that they have locked Matthew in their home for seven months. However, after the trial, they were both found guilty.

In addition to that, the couple were also guuilty of causing a vulnerable adult to suffer serious phsyical harm.

The moment he was rescued, Matthew was rushed to the hospital ICU in what they had described as a pitiable state. Furthermore, abrasions on his body indicated that he had been moving around on all corners of the attic.

Due to being locked and imprisoned in thhe attic for seven months, Matthew had suffered a damage to a kidney due too the high sodium levels related to severe dehydration.

Nicholas Campbell said, “His sodium levels were dangerously high. They measured 180.

“hey were so high they could shut down his brain and kill him. Anything above 145, there is a real chance of death.

“The Home Office pathologist examined the injuries and said the abrasions and bruises were consistent in his view with Matthew having been crawling on all fours over objects in his path.”

Aside from feces and vomit, the police also found noted that there were flies and foul smell in the room whre Matthew was found.

Before Matthew was locked in the attic, he weighed 8.5 stones. However, after the tragic imprisonment, his weight dropped into six stones.

The good news is Mr. Campbel said that Matthew has made a good physical recovery all thanks to the medical staffs who had taken care of him and when he was discharged from the hospital he already weighed 8.6 stones.

Meanwhile, Miss Tana Adkin saidd that Mr. Craig Hewitt showed a significant change when he was sentenced in the court.

She said, “He is devastated about what happened to Mathew. He is not a deliberately cruel man in the sense that the courts see and have seen in the past.

“He is not someone that would punish Matthew for his autism.”

However, the judge refuse to believe the characterisations.

“You were complicit equally with wife Lorna Hewitt in care effectively being switched off to any degree for Matthew as he was locked in his room and starved of food.”

“That did not occur by negligence, it did not occur by recklessness. It was a plan between the pair of you.

“I’m quite satisfied that nothing in that household occurred without either you knowing about it or approving of it.”

Judge then address Lorna Hewitt and said, “It is argued on your behalf that you were particularly vulnerable and suggestible at the time.”

“I had the benefit of observing you give evidence in the trial over the course of several days.

“It did not seem to me that you were not capable of standing up for yourself or that you were particularly suggestible. You were both an articulate, temperate and thoughtful witness.”
