MANILA — Looks like showbiz comedian Vhong Navarro is now humming the song “I’ll be home for Christmas” after the court agreed to grant him bail amounting to P1 million.

This was bared by Vhong’s lawyer Alma Mallonga who said Taguig Regional Trial Court Branch 69 Judge Loralie Datahan set the P1-million bail for the detained movie and television personality.

“The categorical and candid testimony of the complainant suffices, and a culprit may be convicted solely on the basis of her testimony, provided it hurdles the test of credibility,” Datahan noted in her order dated December 5.

Vhong is now detained at Taguig City Jail for the rape charges lodged by model Deniece Cornejo.

In granting Vhong’s bail plea, Datahan said the complainant’s credibility is the single most important issue in a rape case.

The judge cited inconsistencies in Cornejo’s affidavits and these were too material to ignore. (ai/mtvn)
