Repost: Sexual Harassment Case Against Noven Belleza Dropped

Singing champion Noven Belleza can now heave a sigh of relief.

The 19-year-old teenage woman who accused him of sexually molesting her inside a condominium in Barangay Lahug last July 15, was no longer interested in pursuing the case she filed against him.

“After a sober soul-searching, assessment, and analysis of this case, I have realized that I have reached the point that I am no longer interested in pursuing the case due to inordinately adverse effects it brought to me and my family,” she said in her affidavit of desistance.

“Further, in my earnest desire to achieve peace of mind, I am permanently withdrawing my complaint against the accused. I hereby release him (Belleza) from any and all criminal liabilities and waive any criminal action against him in connection with the above-mentioned case,” she added.

The complainant, a resident of Barangay Guadalupe in Cebu City, requested the court to dismiss the charges against Belleza.

Judge James Stewart Ramon Himalaloan of the Regional Trial Court Branch 7 in Cebu City had yet to rule on the complainant’s affidavit of desistance which was filed on Aug. 29.

Belleza’s lawyer Leilani Villarino begged from issuing any statement as the court had yet to rule on the complainant’s request to dismiss the case against the singer.

Belleza, a rice farmer from Negros Occidental, was the grand champion in last March’s Tawag ng Tanghalan, a talent search aired on ABS-CBN’s noontime program “Showtime.”

Belleza, 22, was arrested by operatives of the Mabolo Police Station last July 15 after he performed in the comedy concert of the noontime show’s host Vice Ganda at the IEC Pavilion in Barangay Mabolo, Cebu City.

The complaint told the police that she was sexually molested by Belleza inside a condominium in Barangay Lahug.

Prosecutor Ma. Theresa Casiño found sufficient basis to indict Belleza on charges of rape by sexual assault.

Sexual assault can be slapped against a person who inserts his or her finger or any other object into the genital of another person.

Based on the investigation of the police, Belleza and the victim knew each other and were textmates. Belleza was released from police custody after he posted bail amounting to P120,000.

    1. Alam nung girl at kampo nya to begin with na wala silang laban sa kaso since napakaraming loop holes ng kwento nila. In almost 1 hour d man lang nagalala sa kanya yung mga kasama nyang naghihintay sa kanya sa lobby ng condo kabilang na ang boyfriend nya, sa oras din na yun eh yun lang nagawa sa kanya tapos sa liit ni Noven at isang kamay lang ang pumipigil sa kanya eh d sya nakalaban. Isa pa sa mga condo if magkaroon ng commotion eh siguradong dinig yan ng kapitbahay mo or sa labas at surely aakyatin ka na ng guard (sa almost 1 hour na yun eh sure naman na dapat lumaban sya kc yan gagawin mo if nandun ka sa sitwasyon na yan)... At napakaraming iba pang loopholes

    2. Nangangamoy "areglo" ang mga pangyayari.
      Yung pagbayad or pag areglo or out of court settlements sa mga nagdedemandang biktima ng rape, or similar crimes, ay isang pamamaraan ng pag supil sa kanilang karapatan pantao. Very very sad state of affairs. Another injustice done to a sexually abused victim.

  2. The damage on her part has been done. Her name, profile and photos have been seen by a lot of people. Whether the alleged sexual assault happened or not, she was put on the pedestal kumbaga. Tsk!

  10. O ayan kung anuman ang napagkasunduan mas talo ang babae at mas nakakaawa kung totoo nga ang pangyayari. Lesson kaninuman na wag magtitiwala ng lubos. Kay noven wag malunod sa isang basong tubig. Ang kasikatan may hangganan pero ang magandang ugali pang habang buhay, yun lang!

  12. Ang totoong rape/harassment victim hindi basta2 aatras sa kaso lalo na't alam nyang malakas ang laban nya. Kahit anong "adverse effects" pa yan sayo o sa pamilya mo lakampake dapat at dignidad mo nakasalalay. That is, kung totoong biktima nga sya.

    2. I disagree. Hindi lahat ng tao ganyan ang iniisip. Until you walk in her shoes dmo alam kung anong reaksyon at desisyon ang gagawin mo.

  15. Tamang tama at nagpo promote na si noven ng kanyang album. Good luck na lang sa sales. Magkano kaya binayad kay girl?

  16. Tapos na... balik bukid na... magnegosyo na lang.

  17. No settlement happens. The girl's family is not accepting any amount of money no matter how large the amount because they just want to have justice. They cannot accept the fact that the rape case they filed was just simply lowered to sexual assault and that noven was even able to file a bail for his temporary liberty. They want to put noven to jail. That's their evil plan.
