Enchong Dee posts bail over cyber libel case; denies evading arrest

Enchong Dee's camp has officially released a statement after the actor posted bail over a cyber libel lawsuit filed against him by partylist representative Claudine Bautista-Lim.

On his Instagram account, Enchong's team clarified in a statement released on February 1, that he didn't attempt to evade arrest and has respect for the rule of law.

The statement reads, "Contrary to certain media reports, Enchong Dee has been attending to his professional and personal commitments in the past couple of days and has not made any attempt to evade arrest. More importantly, as a show of respect for the rule of law, he voluntarily submitted himself to the authorities and posted bail."

"Moving forward, Enchong will take all the appropriate and necessary legal steps to defend himself against the pending lawsuit."

The statement came a day after Enchong surrendered himself to the National Bureau of Investigation on Monday, January 31.

In a report by ABS-CBN News, Enchong was said to have posted PHP 48,000 as bail, and was immediately released after it was processed.

A 1 billion lawsuit was filed against the actor in November 2021 after he allegedly implied in a now-deleted tweet last August 2021 that the money used for Claudine's lavish wedding was from the funds “for commuters and drivers.” It is of note that Claudine was a representative of Drivers United for Mass Progress and Equal Rights (DUMPER) party list.

Apart from Enchong, Claudine also named Agot Isidro, Pokwang, Ogie Diaz, Deedee Marie Holliday, Kristina Mae Misajon, and another Twitter user in her complaint, although the rest have already been dismissed.
