MANILA -Senator Jinggoy Estrada vowed to help his “best friend”, comedian Vhong Navarro, achieve justice for what has happened to him.

Estrada told reporters he went to visit Navarro at the hospital on Sunday night and saw the sorry situation of the showbiz personality.

He believes Navarro is telling the truth that he was set up “led by the girl named Deniece.”

Navarro earlier said he was invited to the condo unit of a certain Deniece Cornejo. There, he was allegedly beaten up by Cedric Lee and a certain “Mike”.

“He is a good person. He does not do drugs, he does not smoke. I will help him achieve justice,” Estrada said.

He said he will also go to the National Bureau of Investigation to personally check on Navarro’s case.

Navarro earlier denied reports he attempted to rape Deniece, supposedly the subject of a blotter against him before the police. He said his attackers set out to blackmail him. – from a report by Ruby Tayag, dzMM
