Revilla: No need for Senate probe on Vhong Navarro beating

-A A +A

Tuesday, January 28, 2014


SENATOR Ramon Revilla Jr. will not call for any hearings into the Taguig City mauling incident involving television host Vhong Navarro but the actor-politician vowed to monitor the developments of the case.

"Trabaho na ng pulis at NBI (National Bureau of Investigation) yan pero nasa sa mga kasamahan na natin yun. Para sa akin trabahuhin na lang ng pulis, magtrabaho na lang si De Lima," Revilla told reporters referring to Justice Secretary Leila de Lima.

Senator Jinggoy Estrada, who had visited Navarro in the hospital, earlier said that he promised justice for the actor, whom he refers to as his "best friend".

Asked whether a congressional inquiry is needed over the incident, Estrada said, "We'll see."

Revilla, for his part, said it was not the first time he heard about businessman Cedric Lee, who allegedly attacked Navarro inside the condominium unit of 22-year-old model Deniece Millinette Cornejo.

Reports said Lee had also been accused of attacking businessman and ex-athlete David Bunevacz back in January 2008.

"'Yung kay David, pumunta na 'yun sa akin eh. Nireklamo na sa akin 'yung grupo na 'yan. Pinaimbestigahin sa NBI pero nagulat ako na bigla na lang umalis si David. Natakot na. Ewan ko tapos ito na yung narinig natin ngayon," Revilla said.

Revilla said he would a keep a close eye on the controversy considering that it was the second time Lee was involved in a beating incident.

"Bilang kapatid sa industriya, sa tingin ko, dapat tingnan natin dahil panglawa na ito na ginanyan ng grupo na 'yan. Baka mamaya maulit pa at may mabiktima pa. Kailangan matigil na," he said. (Sunnex)
