Reeves or Janet Derecho Duterte in real life is expected to walk out of the detention facility of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG)-Laguna in Cabuyao town after her family and friends processed her P20,000 bail bond, according to the CIDG-Laguna director, Chief Insp. Zyrus Serrano.

Meanwhile, Nancy Dimaranan, the businesswoman who filed the cyberlibel charge against Reeves, hopes the actress’ arrest would serve a lesson to others to think before posting anything on social media.

“Think before you click. Dahil ang cyber law po talaga sa Pilipinas ay implemented po. At siyempre lalung-lalo na sa LGBT [Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender] community po kung saan ay higit na nayurakan ang pagkatao kaya hindi po ako papayag na basta ganun-ganunin lang ako (Think before you click. The cyber law in the Philippines is really being implemented. [This is] for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community where our dignity is being stepped on, I will not allow other people to treat me that way),” Dimaranan said in a Facebook video.

“Justice served,” she added.

With Reeves posting bail, Serrano said the case is now at the Laguna court’s table for decision.

Reeves was asked for a comment through her Facebook account regarding the issue but she has yet to respond.

It can be recalled that Reeves was arrested by elements of CIDG-Laguna on Monday afternoon outside her condominium unit on Timog Avenue corner Scout Ybardaloza, Quezon City.

The case stemmed from the complaint filed by Dimaranan, owner of a foodpark in Biñan, Laguna where Reeves performed on July 14, 2018.

Dimaranan said she was mocked and cursed by Reeves through a Facebook live video for being a transgender after she was not provided with a car that would bring her home in Quezon City after her performance.
