Meryll Soriano Is Seriously Worried About Her Dad Willie Revillame’s Child Abuse Case


The popular TV host, actor, comedian, Willie Revillame is again at the centre of controversy when he was ordered by the Court of Appeals be arrested regarding the child abuse case filed against him. This is related to the issue wherein he allowed a 6-year old boy to perform a dance number not appropriate according to his age during his erstwhile noontime variety show Willing Willie on TV 5.

The Court of Appeals fortified the original decision of the Quezon City Regional Trial Court (QC-RTC) confirming that they have a basis on the child abuse case filed against Willie Revillame.

In a three-page resolution dated April 11, the Court of Appeals 13th Division dismissed the motion for reconsideration filed by Willie’s attorney to evade the arrest order and to consider it null and void the child abuse case filed by the social worker versus Revillame.

It was reported that the argument filed by Revillame’s attorney does not warrant the dismissal of the case that he is facing now.

As stated in the court resolution penned by Justice Ma. Luisa Quijano-Padilla: “We have carefully reviewed our decision vis-a-vis the motion for reconsideration and we have found that the issues raised in the present motion and the arguments advanced in support thereof are a mere rehash of those already considered and passed upon, and no new issue or substantial argument has been presented to justify the reversal or modification of the assailed decision.”

The Court of Appeals supported the decision of QC-RTC affirming that there was no abuse of authority in ratifying the child abuse case.

However, c questioned the Court of Appeals on the emphasis of child abuse case filed against him.

But the CA supplemented its decision by saying: “As there is probable cause for the petitioner’s commission of a crime, his arrest and arraignment should now ensue so that this case may properly proceed to trial, where the merits of both parties’ evidence and allegations may be weighed.”

Meantime, the daughter of Revillame, Meryll Soriano commented on the ongoing child abuse case against her Dad: “Ang sa akin lang, you know he’s doing everything to help the child. So parang ano pa ba ang gusto ng mga tao na mangyari? We have better problems na dapat harapin.”

Meryll was dumbfounded upon receiving the news concerning the child abuse case her Dad, Willie is facing now. She said that she’s not aware about the latest development of the case filed versus her father, Revillame.

Soriano added that she doesn’t know anything about her Dad, Revillame’s two weeks’ time off and the temporary off the air showing of Wowowin in May. Sadly, she happened to know it from other people.

“Nalulungkot ako na nalalaman ko pa sa ibang tao.Matago po kasi talaga siya. Malihim siya kasi, I guess, hindi siya yung tipo ng tao na magsi-share ng problema niya lalo na sa akin.

“Ayaw niya kasi magwu-worry ako.

“Ngayon, nagwu-worry na ako kasi nalaman ko na.”

Meryll is also hoping to spend quality time with her very busy Dad.

She said: “Yun lang naman ang gusto ko, na magkaroon kami ng oras together. Unfortunately nga, ako ngayon ang naging busy, e. Hindi ko siya nadadalaw.

Soriano continued:“I feel very guilty na hindi ko siya natsi-check kasi busy tayo sa Amboy, e. At least, ngayon, madadalaw na namin siya ngayon. Ako, personally, gusto ko talaga dumating na sa point na magkaroon talaga ng solid na relationship with him. Kasi hindi naman ako bata, hindi na rin siya bata. At alam ko, kailangan niya ako. Nagi-guilty tuloy ako.”
