Just this evening, June 27, 2014 (U.S. time) or this morning, June 28, 2014 (Manila time) Tony Calvento, avid supporter of actor-TV host Vhong Navarro updated his official Facebook page. He posted the screenshots of the Land Transportation Office’s certification of driver’s license issued to Edgardo Sampana, one of the eight people charged for grave coercion and serious illegal detention cases filed by actor-TV host Vhong Navarro before the Taguig Regional Trial Court Branch 271.

Aside from a photo, the journalist also posted the information regarding the identity of Edgardo Sampana. Almost two months ago, Tony received a call from a friend of Jojo Fernandez named Jojo Tan; according to Tony, Jojo was asking for help. “He wanted Jed Fernandez to become state witness,” Tony said when interviewed by Butch Francisco on “Star Talk,” one of the showbiz oriented talk shows in the Philippines which airs on GMA-7.

To make the story short, he encouraged Jojo Tan to reveal the “John Doe” (mysterious man) in the Vhong Navarro-Cedric Lee-Deniece Cornejo case. Jojo confirmed that it was Edgardo Sampana, the one who was holding the actor at the elevator on the night of Jan. 22 when the alleged mauling incident happened.

Incidentally, Jed Fernandez, Ferdinand Guerrero and JP Calma, his co-accused as identified by the authorities are still at large despite the manhunt operation launched by the NBI and the PNP. Zimmer Raz and Cedric Lee are in the custody of the NBI while Deniece Cornejo is currently detained at the CIDG/ATCU detention cell at Camp Crame in Quezon City.

As of this time, Judge Paz Esperanza Cortez is still weighing and examining their filed motion for stay despite the fact that she has already inspected the city jail to determine whether the alleged threats are true or not. On the other hand, Vhong Navarro is working so hard to meet all the requirements in this case. He is also waiting for the resolution of the rape cases filed by a stunt woman and Roxanne Cabanero.
