April 12, 2014; The mauling of Vhong Navarro has led to filing of case against Cedric Lee, Deniece Cornejo and their group. According to the lawyer of the two, Cedric and Deniece will stay in the country and they do not have plans of going out of the country just to avoid the issue and the case filed against them.
Cedric Lee, sister Bernice, Deniece Cornejo, Simeon Raz, Ferdinand Guerrero, Jose Paolo Calma, and Jed Fernandez are accused of crimes of grave coercion and serious illegal detention by Navarro which are offenses that are non-bailable.
Atty. Howard Calleja filed a motion for determination of the probable cause of serious illegal detention case which may block the arrest of his clients though the Taguig Regional Trial Court is set to schedule the hearing of motion on April 15, 2014.
According to a news gathered by ABS-CBN, there was a booking of flight made by Cedric Lee via Cebu Pacific scheduled on Saturday 4 pm bound to Dubai.5J9744 is the flight number and Cebu Pacific already cancelled the said flight.
Calleja said that his clients will face the case squarely no matter what will be the result. He even said that it is too early to conclude about the result of the case due to the fact that they are only on the first step and there are many possible things to happen.
Aside from this, they are also ready to be acquitted from the case if ever.
The issue about the mauling of Vhong Navarro is still unsolved until now due to the fact that there are proceedings to follow. The case filed by Cedric Lee against Vhong was dismissed because of lack of evidences. Vhong was emotional during It’s Showtime because of the decision of DOJ on the case.
