Life imprisonment potentially awaits Cedric Lee and Deniece Cornejo

It seems the party of underworld thug Cedric Lee and starlet Deniece Cornejo may be in deep trouble now following a detailed analysis of security CCTV footage obtained from the building management of Forbeswood Heights conducted by the Philippines’ National Bureau of Investigation (NBI). Despite some hearsay reports that Cedric Lee had some elements of the police and the NBI under his payroll, it seems the NBI have delivered on their promise of a fair investigation as evident in the reported release of the findings of their analysis of CCTV footage which shows that there is no way Navarro could have reaped Cornejo as alleged…

In happier times: Cedric Lee and Deniece Cornejo

Cornejo is claiming that the actor-host tried to rape her while her companion, businessman Cedric Lee, said he found Navarro on top of the commercial model when he arrived in her condominium unit.

CCTV footage of the condominium on that night, however, tells a different story.

It shows that around 22:38 or 10:38 pm of January 22, Navarro is seen entering the condo’s lobby.

At 10:39 p.m., the TV host is seen inside the elevator going up the condo.

At 10:40 p.m., a woman identified as Cornejo is seen leaving the condo.

A minute later, 10:41 p.m., a man identified as Lee enters the condo.

Several men, believed to be Lee’s companions, are seen entering the condo two minutes later.

The woman, Cornejo, is next seen leaving the condo again.

In light of these findings, the NBI has since reportedly filed a complaint with the Department of Justice “against businessman Cedric Lee, his sister Bernice, Deniece Cornejo and several others in connection with the mauling of comedian and TV host Vhong Navarro.”

Article 267 of the Revised Penal Code stipulates very severe penalties — including life imprisonment — for the crimes that Lee, Cornejo, and party are accused of…

Kidnapping and serious illegal detention. — Any private individual who shall kidnap or detain another, or in any other manner deprive him of his liberty, shall suffer the penalty of reclusion temporal in its maximum period to death:

1. If the kidnapping or detention shall have lasted more than five days.

2. If it shall have been committed simulating public authority. chan robles virtual law library

3. If any serious physical injuries shall have been inflicted upon the person kidnapped or detained, or if threats to kill him shall have been made.

4. If the person kidnapped or detained shall be a minor, female or a public officer. The penalty shall be reclusion perpetua to death where the kidnapping or detention was committed for the purpose of extorting ransom from the victim or any other person, even if none of the circumstances above mentioned were present in the commission of the offense.

Cornejo, for her part, is also reportedly preparing to file a rape case against Navarro.

Bad news for the posh residents of Forbeswood Heights. It seems their building is suffering from a bad scum infestation.

She’s a very bad actress based on what I’ve been exposed to. She doesn’t portray a rape victim very well, or an attempted rape victim very well. Plus GABRIELA doesn’t seem to be up in arms about this issue.
Wonder what they wanted from him, or want from him.
Can we please return to more important things, like politics, the pork barrel bullshit, the crappily run government, and all that rot?


i agree with the comment above me. as what my friends says. kung attempted rape victim, di ka ganyan ka fresh. frustration, shame, stress. un ang dapat ang napoportray kaso what we see in her is fresh, na she’s good, she’s ok. if this thing goes well. maybe they can apply it to our OFWs that also gets mauled, harrased and detained by their employers 😐


This got to be one of the dumbest criminals ever.. i bet they never even rehearsed how they are going to act their lies in the public. there are plenty of loopholes in their statements


[…] There is no way the rape allegations lobbed by Cornejo against Vhong Navarro could hold water. CCTV footage analysed by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) had shown that Cornejo had left her condo within a minute of Navarro’s arrival and that […]


I hope Conejo and Lee are imprisoned for life!


Buy why did they need to beat up Vhong if their purpose was extortion? Why did they not create a video tape of the scene if it was going to be a set up. Why Vhong did not immediately file a case against them?

I don’t also trust Philippine’s NBI when it comes to solving puzzles. There have been a lot of cases in the past that they weren’t able to solve.

Jan 17 nagpunta si Vhong sa condo ni Deniece, naginom sila ng white wine at nagkaroon ng oral sex (this is accdg. to Vhong) Then after that nagtext si Deniece about what happened with a msg “Bad ka”,,, akala ni Vhong na yung text is about having a one sided sexual pleasure favoring only him so he replied “Bawi na lang ako next time” (maybe Deniece was offended by his reply for being misunderstood by vhong as “nabitin sya”, so, nagsumbong ang babae kay Cedric Lee regarding what happened that night of Jan 17, then maybe they devised a plan… Read more »

Pag nakulong yan si deniece, jan nya malalaman ang ibig sabihin ng rape, uulamin yan ng mga jailguard na lalaki araw araw


Deniece Cornejo maybe a victim here. Victim of Cedric Lee’s manipulation or blackmail. My analysis is Deniece is a concubine of Cedric Lee and provided a place at a condo unit. Since she won’t be vistd often by Cedric because of other girlfriends, she gets lonely and wanted more sex with Vhong Navarro. Cedric Lee finds out and force Deniece to setup Vhong. She maybe blackmail by Cedric Lee of her nude pictures or threaten her family because in news media, she don’t want her father to go home.


legal strategy – to try to get the cctv footage ruled as not admissable (tampering etc) – desperate measures unless the judge wants a rich retirement – and lies will get more convoluted and confusing.
an exercise in philippine law in progress.
and when the lawyer says they will not leave the country, sounds like they will. why not automatic hold departure order.
they can legally leave the country today. nobody can stop them

nbi/doj so often shuts the stable doos after the horse has bolted

Isama na rin ikulong itong ate ni Cedric Lee na si Bernice Lee.hindi ba nila naisip na may CCTV kahit saan ngayon,ito pala ang tangang negosyante hindi ginamit ang utak.what come around and goes around, what he did the business partner long time ago.napakabait nga naman ng diyos hindi nya hahayaan manalo ang demonyo,tulad ni Cedric Lee akala nya porket mayaman at negosyante ay may power na siya sa lahat ng bagay.Ito namang Deniece Cornejo palibhasa nasanay na salapi at kahit kani-kanino kumakapit at iyon tuloy ang nagdala sa kanya ng kapahamakan,at kung ako sa kanya aaminin ko na lang… Read more »

tsk.. what ashamed to us girls yung ginawa ni deneise towards vhong. as in wla siya delicadesa.. ang ganda niya pa naman pero di niya ginamit pera pera ba lagi labanan…kahit babae ako pero di ko siya kinakampihan kasi kahit saan angulo mali pa din ginwa niya ang landi niya kasi…


rape was defined as unlawful sexual intercourse with a woman against her will. AGAINST HER WILL! E BAKIT GINAGAWA NIYANG LOLLIPOP YUNG TITI NI VHONG?


I hope cedric lee gets drops the soap in prison..

There was no possible rape done within a minute. On other hand, it showed on cctv that a girl(cornejo) shown leaving her unit while a man(navarro) shown inside the elevator just only 1 minute ahead then after a minute 2 men shown enter the room. The question is, paano mo ba marape ang isang tao na wala naman dun?


hehehehheh tuluyan na ang pokpok na to


Buti lang naunahan ng NBI as police sa pag take hold ng CCTV, otherwise, kung pulis ang nakahawak baka na tamper na ang footage dahil may mga generals na kasosyo sa negosyo si Cedric. Ayon nagalit na ang mga pulis at sasampahan daw ng kaso and security agency dahil hindi nag cooperate sa kanila at ang management ng condo dahil hindi binigay sa kanila and CCTV disk.


all I can is hopefully mabulok sa bilangguan ang Punyetang to… Pati si Vhong Navarro pinag tripan ng walang puso,kaluluwang mga tao… may kasabihan tayo, “Crime does not pay”….


Deniece,Cedric and the rest of your companies are all “BOBO”,gagawa lang kayo ng crime hindi pa malinis,…..alam ng itaas kung saan kyo dapat na bumaksak…


An insecure business tycoon who gathers insecure muscular men. An act of cowardness who cannot handle it alone.
Why he called these platoons of coward men to mauled a skinny, innocent man?
Hope it will resolved soon.
