Makati RTC Denied HDO Petition By James Yap Against Ex-Wife Kris Aquino And Son BimbyThe Makati Regional Trial Court dismissed James Yap's petition for a hold departure order against ex-wife Kris Aquino and son, James Yap Jr. or Bimby.
Aquino will leave for Paris over the weekend with sons, Bimby and Josh.
In a report by DZMM, Judge Liza Marie Picardal-Tecson dismissed the petition after hours of deliberating over it.
Aquino and Yap did not attend the hearing. Only their lawyers, Frank Chavez for Aquino and Lorna Kapunan for Yap, attended the hearing.
Chavez confirmed the dismissal of the HDO, but did not give any further details. The Makati RTC issued a gag order against Yap and Aquino.
The court asked both camps to stop making public pronouncements about their family squabble, which already turned into a national issue.
Picardal-Tecson also refused to answer questions from the media.
Yap's camp has yet to give their reaction regarding the junking of the HDO petition.
