Belo back in RP to face charges

MANILA - Controversial celebrity cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo is back in town. Belo flew in around 11 a.m. Tuesday aboard a Cathay Pacific Airlines flight CX 901 from Hong Kong.

The lady doctor did not queue up for processing at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) immigration counter and went straight out of the arrival area.

She was accompanied by a barong-clad man who was wearing an airport-issued identification card. Belo was among those who emerged early from the aircraft.

Wearing a dark blue overall, Belo did not have any makeup on and her hair was not done. Belo eluded newsmen as she hurriedly got out of the airport.

On Monday actress Katrina Halili sued Belo, along with Dr. Mark Herbert Rosario, Eric Chua and Princess Marie Velasco, for violation of Republic Act 9262 or Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act.

The complaint stemmed from a sex scandal involving Halili and Dr. Hayden Kho, Belo’s former boyfriend. Rosario and Chua are erstwhile friends of Kho’s. Velasco, on the other hand, is Rosario’s girlfriend who reportedly had an affair with Kho.

Halili alleged that Belo, Rosario, Chua and Velaco had something to do with the proliferation of her sex video with Kho. Belo’s legal counsel, lawyer Adel Tamano, however, maintained that Belo is innocent of the charges.

Halili’s complaint, which was filed before the Department of Justice, will be consolidated with the case lodged last week by the National Bureau of Investigation against Kho.
