Vhong Navarro’s Rape Charges Led him Transferred to NBI
Comedian Vhong Navarro has been detained at the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) since Monday, September 19, 2022. Vhong Navarro’s rape charges were filed by model Deniece Cornejo.
It has been reported that the actor, together with his counsels appeared before the NBI, Vtech Tower, G. Araneta Avenue, Quezon City on the morning of September 19, 2022. He voluntarily surrendered himself to the custody of the NBI. He was thereafter processed as per the Bureau’s standard operating procedure.
Vhong Navarro coordinated with the NBI according to his legal counsel, expressing his intent to voluntarily surrender in relation to the Warrant of Arrest issued against him for Acts of Lasciviousness by the Metropolitan Trial Court (MTC) Branch 116, Taguig City on September 15, 2022.
In a radio interview, lawyer Alma Mallonga said Navarro was put behind bars following the issuance of another arrest warrant against him on Monday afternoon, September 19, over rape charges.
The Taguig City Regional Trial Court Branch 69, issued the order at 4 p.m., hours after another court gave him an arrest warrant over charges of acts of lasciviousness, prompting Navarro to surrender to the NBI.
One shared on Twitter that he clearly remembers how the media framed Deniece Cornejo when the news broke out… she and her legal team waited 8 fucking years for this! angry at the delays, but he is fervently praying to the universe that Vhong Navarro and other rapists like him get their karma.

Navarro’s legal counsel said on Tuesday, September 20 that Vhong Navarro’s rape charges were filed by model Deniece Cornejo. She said in her order that the rape charge is non-bailable.
Model Deniece Cornejo sued Navarro for acts of lasciviousness and rape. It was in January 2014 when the rape allegedly happened.
Mallonga who is the lawyer, expressed dismay as they were not given a copy of the second warrant nor a court resolution on the filing of rape charges against Navarro as the court presented a P36,000 bail for the acts of lasciviousness case, while the rape charge was non-bailable.
Ronald Samonte said about this case: “Not isolated to Vhong Navarro. NBI has done this before with other celebrities and who’s who of Philippine society. Totally different when you don’t belong to either group.”
