MANILA, Philippines – A Quezon City court on Monday, June 11, ordered the arrest of talent manager Annabelle Rama for failing to appear in a scheduled arraignment, reports said.
Judge Eleuterio Bathan of the Quezon City Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 92 issued the warrant of arrest for Rama for not appearing in Monday’s hearing, the Philippine Daily Inquirer reported.
The hearing was about the 14-count libel case filed by the camp of actress Nadia Montenegro. Montenegro accused Rama of having malicious statements on TV and on Twitter against her last year.
Bail was set at P10,000 per count of libel, or a total of P140,000, ABS-CBN News reported.
The Inquirer said the court earlier set June 11 as the arraignment date, after the court denied an appeal by Rama’s camp to suspend it. – Rappler.com
