Court of Appeals orders arrest of Willie Revillame over child abuse case
 042616-willie_PUSH.jpgThe 13th Division of Court of Appeals junked Willie Revillame’s motion for reconsideration regarding the child abuse case filed against him. This case is rooted way back in 2011, when a 6-year old child joined the TV host’s now defunct show in TV5 Willing-Willie and danced in a mature manner.

“We have carefully reviewed our decision vis-a-vis the motion for reconsideration and we have found that the issues raised in the present motion and the arguments advanced in support thereof are a mere rehash of those already considered and passed upon, and no new issue or substantial argument has been presented to justify the reversal or modification of the assailed decision,” the report said.

Before the case went up to the CA, Quezon City Regional Trial Court Judge Roberto Buenaventura issued a warrant of arrest for the host last October 4, 2013 but he was bailed out instantly. 

The CA defended the QC-RTC and said that they have not “committed no grave abuse of discretion” and “there is probable cause for the petitioner’s commission of a crime, his arrest and arraignment should now ensue so that this case may properly proceed to trial, where the merits of both parties’ evidence and allegations may be weighed.”
