Latest News about Marinduqueno's in the Philippines
The following news regarding Marinduquenos in the Philippines attracted my attention today. Mrs. Irene De La Santa Kho, the mother of Hayden Kho made the news again today. Irene originally hails from Boac, Marinduque. Her son, Hayden had been involved with the video sex scandal that rocked the Philippines last year, because her son is a celebrity and associated with socialite and plastic surgeon Vicki Belo in a May-December coupling. If you have not heard of the Kho-Halili news, and you are a Filipino or Filipino-American, you must be residing in another planet. Here's the news for your reading pleasure( From Manila Standard).
Hayden mom’s arraignment in libel suit deferred
Irene Kho, mother of cosmetic surgeon Hayden Kho, has asked the court to defer her arraignment over the libel case filed by actress Katrina Halili.
Last May 17, she and her counsel Jose Paolo Patajob sought a review of her indictment while posting a P20,000 bail after Quezon City Regional Trial Court Judge Luisito Cortez of branch 85 issued a warrant for her arrest.
“The accused is merely defending her son, and it should not be viewed as a criminal act,” Patajo said.
Coming in at last minute, Kho showed up on Thursday to sign the court’s minutes even as she had manifested earlier to beg off from the proceedings because she would be “subjected to humiliation by the large number of media covering the case.”
On Aug. 6, 2009, QC Assistant Prosecutor Rafael Villordon junked the two counts of libel filed by Halili against Kho for lack of basis.
But on March 12, 2010, upon Halili’s petition, former Justice Secretary Agnes Devanadera reversed Villordon’s findings and ordered Kho’s indictment.
The arraignment was reset to June 17.
Kho appeared on May 25 and 26 in an ABS-CBN program saying Halili got her son into drugs.
Hayden himself faces charges for taking videos of him and Halili having sex. The videos were circulated on the Internet and pirated copies sold like hot cakes on the streets. Angelica Carballo
