According to reports, posted P48,000 bail for this temporary release late Monday night.

On January 28, news broke that a warrant of arrest had been issued to arrest Kapamilya actor Enchong Dee in connection with the cyber libel case filed against him by DUMPER Representative Claudine Bautista-Lim in  2021.

Other celebrities such as Agot Isidro, Pokwang, and Ogie Diaz were acquitted in the case, because according to the prosecutor’s office, only the three expressed opinions on their Twitter accounts; Enchong, on the other hand, was a direct accusation that allegedly caused the representative’s name to be tarnished and her pregnancy to be affected.

Showbiz columnist Cristy Fermin advised the Kapamilya actor to just surrender to the authorities following the report that the actor had an arrest warrant, but it did not arrive at his given address in City. It was also found out that the actor does not actually live here, and it is just a boarding house.

“Ito ang pinakamagandang gagawin ni Enchong dito, ang voluntary surrender,” Cristy’s advice is that when she often receives a warrant of arrest because of the cases filed against her by the artists she opposes because of her exposes.

DUMPER Representative Bautista has confirmed she filed a cyber libel case against Enchong Dee after he criticized her wedding on social media.

“The anxiety, anguish, humiliation and the impact on my and my family’s reputation left us no choice but to file cases against those responsible for causing us so much grief and worry, which almost led to me losing our baby, and which adversely affected some of our constituents’ trust in us,” Bautista said.

Enchong has apologized long before Bautista filed a complaint against the actor.
