Is Enchong Dee hiding somewhere? Some have raised this question in the wake of reports that Enchong Dee has gone missing after authorities attempted to serve a warrant for his arrest at his last known address in Cubao, Quezon City, on Wednesday.
Neighbors allegedly alerted authorities that the star hasn’t been seen in the area in a long time.
Cristy Fermin, a veteran showbiz hound, also reported on the matter on Friday, saying the same thing. She insisted, however, that the location is not the actor’s home. Enchong owns only a “dormitory” or “boarding house,” she explained.
Cristy, on the other hand, advised the actor to present himself to authorities voluntarily.
“Ito ang pinakamagandang gagawin ni Enchong dito,” she intoned. “Hindi po pwedeng pagtaguan ito…”
“Huwag mong paliitin ang mundo mo, magpiyansa ka,” she added.
The case arose from a complaint filed by DUMPER Representative Claudine Bautista-Lim in August 2021 before the Davao Occidental Regional Trial Court.
She accused the actor of using a malicious tweet to smear her name.
Enchong quickly apologized, but it was in vain.
The case was accepted by a panel of prosecutors, who stated that the actor’s post “peremptorily makes the complainant a soft target for heavy criticism and pillory, placing her in a bad light as a consequence of such reckless and irresponsible tweet by the respondent.”
“Calling someone a thief, without proof and with heavy malice, is where to draw the line as this is already libelous,” prosecutors said, referring to the actor’s public apology.
Enchong has yet to comment on the situation.
