Court issues gag order on Kris Aquino, James Yap-A A +A
Friday, March 22, 2013
A MAKATI Regional Trial Court on Friday issued a gag order over court proceedings involving ex-couple actress-TV host Kris Aquino and basketball star James Yap.
Judge Liza Marie Picardal-Tecson of Makati Regional Trial Court branch 144 issued the gag order after the hearing of Yap's petition for a hold departure order prohibiting the Queen of All Media from bringing their son, James Jr. (popularly known as Bimby), outside of the country.
The gag order bans the former couple from discussing the merits of HDO petition as well as other cases involving both parties filed in same court.
Yap sought for the HDO when he learned that Kris plans to bring Bimby to Europe for a vacation during the weekends.
Before Yap filed the HDO petition, the court granted Kris' Temporary Protection Order (TPO) last March 15, the same day it was filed.
The TPO mandates Yap to stay away from his son, Kris, and any household member at a safe distance of at least 100 meters. The order includes Kris' residence, place of work, and their son's school. The TPO expires April 13. (Sunnex)
