Tila nasa kumukulong tubig ngayon ang aktor na si Enchong Dee matapos maghain ng cyber libel case si Congresswoman Claudine Diana Bautista-Lim, party-list representative ng Drivers United for Mass Progress and Equal Rights or DUMPER, sa Office of the Provincial Prosecutor sa Davao Occidental laban sa kanya.
Dahil ito ay umano sa pagsasabi ni Enchong ng mga “malicious” at “defamatory” statements laban sa kanya sa pamamagitan ng social media matapos ang kanyang kasal sa negosyanteng si Jose French Lim noong Pebrero 20, 2021 sa Balesin.
Ayon sa complaint ni Claudine, “Enchong went as far as saying that I used public coffers to fund my wedding by categorically saying that ‘The money for commuters and drivers went to her wedding’, to the detriment and injury to my honor and name…”
“The posts were meant nothing more than their malicious intentions of maligning my person, depicting me as a corrupt public official,” dagdag pa niya.
Humihingi si Claudine ng moral damages na nagkakahalagang ₱500,000,000 kasama ang exemplary damages na nagkakahalaga rin ng ₱500,000,000.
Bagama’t inamin niya nakarating sa kanya ang public apology ni Enchong tungkol sa isyu noon, ngunit sinabi niyang hindi umano ito sapat.
“He was not sorry to me and for the damage that he has done. He just wants to deflect, albeit unsuccessfully, this criminal charge against him…”
“This does not do any good for him. It only bolstered and magnified his admission of guilt beyond reasonable dount for his un-provoked and baseless libelous remarks.”
As of this writing, wala pang pahayag si Enchong tungkol sa usapin.
