‘Hindi pa tapos ang laban!’ Cedric Lee at Deniece Cornejo, aapela para lumabas ang katotohanan na inosente sila

Businessman Cedric Lee and model Deniece Cornejo said that their legal battle has yet to be over.

On May 2, 2024, the Taguig Regional Trial Court Branch 153 found Lee and Cornejo guilty of the charges filed against them by Vhong Navarro, which resulted for them to face reclusión perpetua.

Both Lee and Cornejo already surrendered to the authorities, but it was reported that they would appeal the decision to the higher court.

Lee’s legal team was already preparing to appeal the decision before the Court of Appeals and hoping that the “truth” will come out.

Meanwhile, Cornejo’s team has yet to reveal their plans, but it was expected that they would exhaust all legal remedies for their client.

In a statement, Lee said that Navarro should be the one be put behind bars and not Cornejo as he insisted that the model was the real victim.

“Itong isa, ang dami nang nabiktima, nakalaya pa, nagsasayaw pa sa show niya,” said Lee.

Meanwhile, Navarro’s legal team said that the television host was happy with the decision.

“He was very happy na this 10-year struggle is finally—has closure and that justice was served. We’re very happy,” Navarro’s lawyer, Atty. Bon Arcilla said.
