Enchong Dee in hiding?

This is the question asked by some, following reports about Enchong Dee supposedly making himself scarce after authorities tried to serve a warrant for his arrest at his last known address in Cubao, Quezon City, Wednesday.

Supposedly, neighbors informed police the actor hasn't visited the area for some time already.

Veteran showbiz hound Cristy Fermin also reported on the matter, Friday, relating very much the same. But she maintained the place is not actually the actor's residence. She shared that it is but a "dormitory" or "boarding house" that Enchong owns.

Cristy, however, went on to advise the actor to voluntarily surrender himself to authorities.

"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 stemmed from a complaint filed before the Davao Occidental Regional Trial Court by DUMPER Representative Claudine Bautista-Lim in August 2021.

She accused the actor of maligning her name via a malicious tweet.

Enchong was quick to apologize but it was for naught.

A panel of prosecutors approved the case, citing that the actor’s tweet "peremptorily makes the complainant a soft target for heavy criticism and pillory, placing her thereby in a bad light due to such reckless and irresponsible tweet of the respondent.”

As to the actor already issuing a public apology, prosecutors maintained, “calling someone a thief, without proof and with heavy malice, is where to draw the line as this is already libelous.”

Enchong is yet to issue a statement on the matter.
