Katrina Halili's libel case against Hayden Kho's mother junked

>> Thursday, August 27, 2009

This is the first case that Katrina filed that was junked by the QC Prosecuter's office. People wondered why Katrina filed several irrelevant cases left and right when the issue was about her sex video with Hayden Kho. Many blog commenters left nasty comments against Katrina for accusing Irene of damaging her reputation. They asked "what reputation?"

MANILA – The Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office on Thursday dismissed the libel complaint filed by Katrina Halili against Irene Kho, mother of cosmetic surgeon Hayden Kho, due to lack of probable cause.

In its resolution, the prosecutor’s office said Halili failed to prove that Irene acted with malice when she accused the sexy star of using illegal drugs during her television interviews in May.

Meanwhile, Halili’s legal counsel, lawyer Raymund Palad, said he has yet to see the copy of the resolution.

Palad said he and his client will no longer file any motion for reconsideration before the prosecutor’s office. Halili’s camp will instead go directly to the Department of Justice and file a petition for review, he said.

Halili filed two counts of libel against Irene after the latter accused the actress of using illegal drugs and influencing her son to become a drug user during her television interviews on "TV Patrol World."

Halili and Irene’s son, Hayden, got involved in the sex video scandal, which is now the subject of investigations by different agencies of government. [ABS-CBN}
