Vhong cries as DOJ junks rape complaint
Embattled actor-host Vhong Navarro cried tears of joy on “It’s Showtime” on Thursday, after the Department of Justice dismissed the rape complaint filed against him by model Deniece Cornejo.
“Gusto ko pong magpasalamat sa ating Panginoon, especially sa madlang people, sa mga naniniwala, sa mga nagdasal, sa lahat po ng nagpalakas ng aking loob sa likod at sa harap ng camera,” said Navarro.
Cedric, Deniece indicted for serious illegal detention
MANILA – The Department of Justice (DOJ) has found probable cause to charge Cedric Lee, Deniece Cornejo, Bernice Lee, Simeon Raz, Ferdinand Guerrero, Jose Paolo Calma and Jed Fernandez for the crimes of serious illegal detention and grave coercion.
The DOJ, in a 42-page resolution dated April 4, 2014, said it was clear that on January 22 up to the wee hours of January 23 Lee’s group deprived Navarro of his liberty, which is a primary element of the crime of serious illegal detention.
The DOJ said the group also inflicted serious physical injuries on the host-actor and threatened to kill him.
The DOJ said it is also clear that the group committed the crime charged for purposes of extorting money or ransom from Navarro in exchange of his liberty.
As for the crime of grave coercion, the DOJ said it was apparent that the group compelled Navarro to do acts which were against his will.
Meanwhile, the panel said the other complaints filed by Navarro against Lee’s group, including serious physical injuries, grave threats and illegal arrest, were already absorbed in the illegal detention charge.
As of writing, the DOJ panel is now on its way to the Taguig Regional Trial Court to file the case.
