They are the hottest personalities in the country today because of the arrest warrants issued by the Taguig Regional Trial Court this afternoon, April 21, 2014 for the serious illegal detention case filed by actor-TV host Vhong Navarro. Reports said the arrest warrants had already been signed by Judge Paz Esperanza Cortez last Wednesday, but because of the lenten season, the court decided to released the warrants just this afternoon..

After reading the report, the fans and supporters of the "It's Showtime" host took to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and expressed their congratulations not only for Vhong Navarro but also for the brave DOJ Sec. Leila De Lima, Tony Calvento, Atty. Alma Mallonga and Judge Paz Esperanza Cortez for their combined effort. They also added that the justice system in the Philippines is still rolling contrary to some personalities claim that it is already dead.

Meanwhile, a report from TV Patrol, one of the most credible news programs in the Philippines, this evening confirmed that Bernice Lee, sister of Cedric Lee has already been arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation or NBI at Cedric's house in West Greenhills, San Juan City. The authorities had failed to serve the arrest warrant to Cedric Lee.

Is he still in the country? In an interview with reporters last week, Atty. Howard Calleja, lawyer of Cedric and Deniece, confirmed that his clients are ready to go to jail, but based on the NBI's effort to serve the warrant of arrest, the controversial businessman is now hiding. Aside from Cedric, the authorities are also looking for Deniece Cornejo, Zimmer Raz, Jed Fernandez, Ferdinand Guerrero, to serve the arrest warrants for the serious illegal detention case, but like what the reports said, the authorities ares still unsuccessful to serve the warrants.

The netizens have noticed that Deniece has stopped using her social media accounts, and for them, she is also hiding along with her co-accused Cedric Lee, and if the rumor is true, some people say they used the backdoor to escape because of the look out bulletin issued by the DOJ.
