DSWD sues Willie Revillame for child abuse

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) filed a legal complaint against “Willing Willie” host Willie Revillame over a 6-year-old boy's lewd dance in his show last March 12.

Recently, DSWD Dinky Soliman wrote earlier, March 28, a letter of protest to TV5 management, headed by its chairman Manny Pangilinan, over another controversy involving "Willing Willie" host Willie Revillame.

The DSWD charged Revillame with violation of Republic Act No. 7610, or the Special Protection of Children against Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination Act, before the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office.

DSWD Secretary Dinky Soliman said in an official statement, "Our decision to initiate legal proceedings is pursuant to our mandate to protect children who are victims of abuse, neglect and exploitation. It is also in response to the public clamor for government intervention regarding Mr. Revillame’s actuations toward the little boy in that unfortunate episode of Willing Willie."

If found guilty of child abuse, Revillame could face 6 to 12 years imprisonment.
