Roxanne Cabanero attended today the Preliminary Investigation of her Rape case against Vhong Navarro held at the City Prosecutor’s Office of Pasig City. Roxanne Cabanero‘s lawyer, Atty. Virgilio Batalla surprised the defense attorneys (of Vhong), when he presented a “Manifestation” which declared that the Rape could have happened a few days after Vhong and Roxanne met in It’s Showtime without mentioning the exact date nor the place of the alleged rape.
In the earlier Rape complaint affidavit filed, Roxanne Cabanero was very specific with regards to the particular circumstances of the alleged rape. The Defense lawyers of Vhong, Atty. Alma Mallonga and Atty. Leo Macatangay were surprised that Atty. Batalla instead submitted a Manifestation instead of a Supplemental Affidavit of Complaint. Their surprise is not of fear but of delight. They decided to take the Manifestation on its face value and decided that it was not worth a Reply and Roxanne Cabanero’s Rape case against Vhong Navarro is now submitted for resolution by the Fiscal for either the dismissal of the case or the filing of a Rape case against Vhong Navarro.
Here is the Manifestation of Roxanne Cabanero:
