In today's hearing at the Quezon City RTC Branch 106, Rachel "Che" Tiongson withdrew the civil case she filed against former live-in partner and Deputy National Security Adviser Luis "Chavit" Singson.
Close friends of the former couple like Annabelle Rama and Nadia Montenegro were on hand to lend their support and probably played a crucial part in the amicable settlement of the case. There's nothing like the support and advise of common friends in difficult situations such as this.
According to the Inquirer, Tiongson and Singson talked for about an hour with the judge before the compromise settlement was reached. Tiongson cited their five children as the primary reason why she dropped the case. She also obtained full visitation rights to her children with the former Ilocos Sur governor.
