Manila, Philippines – The petition of Slimmers World International for a temporary protection order (TRO) against Cabanero was junked by the Makati Regional Trial Court. This is present in a resolution on April 2. The Makati Regional Trial Court said that "finds no great and irreparable injury that would have caused the applicant before the injuctive relief can be heard." It means to say that their request to bar Roxanne Cabanero from mentioning the name of the pageant in public with regards to her complaint against Vhong was not granted.
According to the Slimmers World, the reason why they filed a P1.6-million lawsuit against Cabanero is for the sake of sustaining the “good will and reputation” of the organization due to Cabanero’s mentioning of the Miss Bikini Philippines during her statements. This is in connection to her rape complaint about the actor and TV host last February 19.
Lack of evidence by the Slimmers World showing that Cabanero metioned the organization or Miss Bikini Philippines because they could not show any proof.
In the resolution, it is stated that "There is no extreme urgency which would justify the issuance of a TRO," While it may be true that the applicant may be entitled to the issuance of a TRO, [Cabanero] may also suffer irreparable injury while [Slimmers World] may be fully compensated for such damages that they may have suffered."
According to Cabanero, Vhong Navarro raped her in the year 2010 and she was a contestand in Miss Bikini Philippines that time.
Atthy. Virgilio Batalla, Cabanero’s legal counsel, said that it is inherent for Cabanero’s rape case the mentioning of the pageant. The request of Slimmers World International was not granted.
