Television host and comedian Willie Revillame was charged Monday before a Quezon City court for allegedly verbally and emotionally abusing his estranged wife, Floralice “Liz" Almoro.

Assistant City Prosecutor Gibson Araulla Jr found probable cause to indict Revillame in court for violation of Section 5 of Republic Act 9262, or the Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act.

“The arguments raised by respondent (Revillame) in his counter-affidavit are a matter of defense which is best left to the court to decide," Araulla ruled in his two-page resolution.

The case docketed as Criminal Case No. Q-07-147787 will be raffled on Tuesday at 2 p.m. in the sala of Quezon City regional trial court Executive Judge Romeo Zamora.

A bail of P12,000 was recommended for Revillame’s provisional liberty.

Almoro, a model, executed a sworn statement before police officer 3 Ma. Theresa Tayag in Camp Crame on Aug. 16, 2006 or 10 days after an argument with Revillame.

She alleged that during that argument, a shouting Revillame berated her while he was holding their baby boy, narrating that she noticed her son’s shaking up and down and side to side.

She further claimed that sometime May 2006, Revillame allegedly tried to hit her with a chair and throw the remote control.

The complainant added that every time they had a fight, Revillame would usually leave their house. In her supplemental affidavit, Almoro claimed that Revillame would repeatedly threaten to leave her and their child, which she said caused her mental anguish.

Almoro also alleged that Revillame would also emotionally and psychologically abuse her when he refused to be intimate with her. She added that her estranged husband had “dirty sexual affairs" with different women.

In his counter-affidavit, Revillame denied the charges claiming that it was actually the complainant who verbally and emotionally abused him.

He also denied that he had affairs with other woman, countering that he had difficulty performing his duty as husband allegedly because of Almoro’s explosive moods and hurtful tirades.

But the Quezon City prosecutor still found sufficient evidence to indict Revillame.
