Followers of actor TV host Vhong Navarro are now celebrating because of the reported dismissal of the second rape complaint filed by part time actress/model Deniece Cornejo who is now in the custody of the PNP/CIDG at Camp Crame in Quezon City. According to a report of ABS-CBN News posted this evening, July 11, 2014 (Manila time) or this morning, July 11, 2014 (U.S. time) the court decided to dismiss the second rape complaint due to lack of evidence.
The resolution of the case dated July 1, 2014 says “If indeed Deniece Cornejo was raped on January 17 or 18, 2014, why would she still invite Vhong Navarro on January 22, 2014 to her condominium?" Incidentally, her first rape complaint against the actor-TV host has already been dismissed by the Taguig Prosecutor’s Office due to the poor presentation of proof. Deniece has become one of the hottest local celebrities when a report regarding the alleged mauling incedent that happened in her condominium unit last Jan. 22 came out.
Based on the report, Vhong Navarro was tortured and extorted by Cedric Lee, Jed Fernandez, Ferdinand Guerrero, JP Calma, Bernice Lee, Zimmer Raz and Edgardo Sampana. Cedric, Zimmer and Deniece are already in jail but the other five accused remain at large. In an interview with reporters several months ago, Justice Sec. Leila De Lima confirmed that JP Calma had managed to go out of the country despite the lookout bulletin issued by her office. Anyway, the case is now moving forward to give justice to Vhong Navarro who was allegedly tortured and extorted by Cedric and his men.
Unfortunately, despite the efforts made by Vhong’s legal team, Judge Paz Esperanza Cortez is still keeping her silence regarding the possible transfer of all the accused currently detained at the National Bureau of Investigation detention cell. If you could still remember, Cedric and Zimmer appealed to the lady judge and filed a motion for transfer because of death threats, several weeks after; Judge Paz Cortez inspected the city jail to know whether the alleged threats are true or not.
