“Our client, Ms. Deniece Milinette Cornejo, is elated by the recent decision of the Regional Trial Court, Branch 153 sustaining and upholding the previous Order of RTC Branch 271 in Criminal Case No. 153705-TG, which is the Serious Illegal Detention Case filed by Mr. Ferdinand Navarro against her, Cedric Lee, and several other persons.
"By the said Order, the earlier finding that the evidence of the prosecution was weak and that our client should be granted bail, has been given validation.
“Mr. Cornejo is thankful to the presiding judge of Branch 153 for not succumbing to trial by publicity and other pressures being brought to bear by adverse counsel and media organizations and high-powered professional public relations practicioners.
“We have explained to our client that this is but another step in her quest for justice, and we still have a long way to go before complete justice may be finally attained.
“Judge Mariam Bien, while confirming the grant of bail to Cedric Lee, Deniece, & Zimmer, goes on to say that the ‘prosecution is not being left with an empty bag’ and that ‘it has not yet gone to the heart of the case.’
“What that means, even as the prosecution tries to assess its remedies from the 2.5 page order, is that Vhong's quest for justice continues."
“The evidence is clear and undisputed."
“We will fight to the very end. Tuloy ang laban.”
