Cedric Lee Transfers To Taguig City JailAfter the Court junked Chinese businessman Cedric Lee's, who was implicated in the Vhong Navarro mauling and illegal detention case, appeal to let him stay in the detention cell of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), he was transferred on August 6 to the Taguig City Jail.
Zimmer Raz, one of his alleged cohorts in the mauling of the TV host-comedian, was also moved to the city jail.
Even the appeal of model-stylist Deniece Cornejo, whose rape case against Vhong was junked by the Court, to stay in the detention cell of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) was also denied.
The Court said it found no probable case not to transfer them to the city jail in Taguig, where the alleged incident happened. Zimmer earlier said he doesn't want to be moved to the ordinary jail because he might be harassed by "solid" Vhong fans.
He also said they don't deserve to be treated as criminals because they were only victims of Vhong's wrong accusations.
The Taguig Regional Trial Court, on the other hand, assured Cedric, Zimmer and Deniece that they are safe and sound in the city jail, which is located inside the Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City.
It is still not clear when Deniece will be transferred to the city jail.
The three are facing cases of serious illegal detention and grave coercion. This is in connection to the mauling of the TV host-actor on the night of January 22, 2014 in the condo unit of Deniece at Forbeswood Heights.
