In his taped interview with Butch Francisco aired Sunday, May 4, 2014 on GMA-7's Star Talk, one of the longest-running showbiz oriented talk show in the Philippines, Tony Calvento, avid supporter of actor-TV host Vhong Navarro revealed important things about the incident that happened in a condominium unit three months ago. The journalist narrated his encounter with Jed Fernandez's friend during the holy week.

Aside from that, Tony also confirmed that Cedric and his group have had a meeting at the poolside of a hotel, ate at a Chicken House and parked their cars a few meters away from Forbeswood Heights Condominium just a few hours before the incident happened. Due to the circumstances narrated by Jed's emissary and the evidences, especially the CCTV footage, gathered by the National Bureau of Investigation, Tony believes that Cedric Lee has to stay in jail.

While he was narrating the incident, he also revealed to Butch that Jed Fernandez had sent him another emissary. Based on his allegation, Jed is still willing to talk to him and turn the tables against Cedric Lee and the others involved in the incident.

Jed already tried to become a state witness before but for some reasons, he immediately backed out and decided to hide after his conversation with Tony Calvento and DOJ Sec. Leila De Lima last month. In the journalist's own opinion, Jed is not willing to testify against his co-accused, according to him, the "Gentle Giant" is just willing to be dropped to the roster which is impossible according to Tony because of the evidences gathered by the NBI.

And now, he is sending another emissary again for a meeting with Tony Calvento, unfortunately, the journalist is not willing to gamble for the second time, because this time, he wants to make sure that the emissary will present Jed Fernandez.
