Vhong Navarro Is Clear From Third Rape CaseThe Quezon City Prosecutor's Office junked the rape complaint filed by Margarita Fajardo against "It's Showtime" host Vhong Navarro.
The office found no "probable cause" with Margarita's complaint. She and Vhong worked together in the teleserye "I Love Betty La Fea." Margarita was a body double there while Vhong was Bea Alonzo's character's best friend.
In her complaint, Margarita said she was raped in the early part of 2009. They were in an on-location taping that time, and the actor-TV host raped her inside his van.
But based on the resolution by Assistant City Prosecutor Nilda Ordono, there was no evidence that Vhong raped Margarita, who admitted there were a lot of people outside the van when the rape happened.
"In essence, apart from the long delay before the complaint was filed, the dismissal was anchored on the failure to establish force or intimidation."
There was also no reason for Margarita to just follow what Vhong bid her back then because in her own admission, there were "lots of people around" the area where the incident happened.
What she admittedly told Vhong--"okay ka na baba na ako"--after the incident, was not also a sign of someone who has just been raped.
