Three months after the incident that almost shocked the Philippine Entertainment Industry, businessman Cedric Lee, martial arts expert Zimmer Raz and model Deniece Cornejo have finally met the actor-TV host Vhong Navarro this afternoon, May 6, 2014 (Philippine time) or this morning, May 6, 2014 (U.S. time). Reports claimed that at around 7:45 a.m. (Philippine time) Deniece arrived at the Taguig Regional Trial Court Branch 271 followed by Cedric Lee and Zimmer Raz at around 12:15 p.m. while Vhong Navarro arrived in the courtroom past noon.
The authorities were very strict, they did not allow anyone from the local media to enter the courtroom while Judge Cortez was still discussing the petition for bail filed by Cedric Lee and Zimmer Raz and determining whether Deniece will continue to be detained at the PNP Headquarters or in the Taguig City Jail. Meanwhile, everyone was surprised when the grandmother of Deniece Cornejo shouted and confronted Vhong Navarro while the latter was about to go out of the court.
Based on a report of Ginger Conejero, one of the entertainment reporters of ABS-CBN News, Deniece's grandmother approached and nagged the actor. Ginger narrated that despite the grandmother's expletive words, Vhong remained calm and decided to leave the court peacefully, and in case you have missed, this video courtesy of ABS-CBN News will show you how the actor reacted to the situation when the model's grandmother approached him while he was about to go out of the court.
As you all know, the three of them, Cedric, Zimmer and Deniece are facing the non-bailable serious illegal detention and grave coercion cases filed by the It's Showtime host. Their co-accused, Ferdinand Guerrero, Jed Fernandez and Jose Paolo Palma are still at large, based on an announcement made by the DOJ secretary several weeks ago, Palma is now Singapore despite the look out bulletin issued by her department.
