 Comedian and TV host Vhong Navarro was released on December 5 after the Taguig City Regional Trial Court Branch 69 granted his petition.

The court has set Navarro's bail to P1-million for his temporary liberty in connection with the rape case filed by model Deniece Cornejo.

"Viewed in light of all the forgoing, and taking the evidence presented in the bail hearing as a whole, this Court is not convinced at this point, that there exists a presumption great leading to the inference of the accused's guilt," Presiding Judge Loralie Cruz Datahan of Taguig City RTC Branch 69 said in an order.

Navarro was first detained at the National Bureau of Investigation's detention facility in Manila before he was transfered to the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology male dormitory in Taguig amid the ongoing case trial .

The court cited three notable inconsistencies on the affidavits filed by Cornejo. 

"In all of these affidavits, the complainant gave different versions of the incident," Datahan said.

"It must be emphasized, however, that a grant of bail does not prevent the Court, as trier of facts, from making a final assessment of the evidence after full trials on the merits," the judge added.
