vivapinas0502202440The Philippine National Police is calling on Cedric Lee and another co-accused to surrender to authorities.

This comes after they were found guilty by the Taguig Regional Trial Court in relation to the serious illegal detention case filed by actor-host Vhong Navarro.

Also convicted in the case are Deniece Cornejo, Ferdinand Guerrero, and Simeon Palma Raz during Thursday’s promulgation. Lee did not attend.

“I am sure nakarating sa kaalaman ni Lee and Guerrero nag-issue ng warrant of arrest ang korte so it will be in their best interest na mag-voluntary surrender na lang sila doon sa pinakamalapit na istasyon sa kanila or they could get through their lawyers so they could arrange yung possible pag-voluntary surrender nila,”said PNP spokesperson Col. Jean Fajardo.

“Nonetheless yung ating mga akusado, they have the right to exercise and exhaust all legal remedies available to them to file an MR (motion for reconsideration) or appeal this came in the proper forum,”he added.

When asked if Lee is still in the country, Bureau of Immigration spokesperson Dana Sandoval said, “No record of departure.”

He has a hold departure order since 2014 and a warrant of arrest since 2015. Lee is also included in the Immigration Lookout Bulletin,” said the official.

The official also mentioned that Guerrero also has a warrant of arrest and an Immigration Lookout Bulletin Order.

“The BI is committed to implementing said orders if the subjects are encountered in any ports of entry or exit,” said Sandoval.

Meanwhile, Cornejo and Raz have been turned over to the Taguig police for documentation of the case.
