Deniece Cornejo hasn’t been deterred by her rape complaint against Vhong Navarro being dismissed by the Department of Justice and has posted bail in the case.
Cornejo, businessman Cedric Lee, and five others of their group have been charge with a range of crimes including grave coercion, illegal arrest, and illegal detention in the case.
A source told the Philippine Star that Cornejo and Jed Fernandez, another of the group, posted P12,000 bail in the case, confirming a report from dzMM.
Lee’s sister Bernice, Simeon “Zimmer” Raz, Jose Paolo Calma and Ferdinand Guerrero are the other defendants in the case.
Lee has also been summoned in the investigation that was launched into his potential tax evasion after the Navarro case came to light.
Despite the Department of Justice saying that Cornejo’s complaint against Navarro didn’t have merit, and the subsequent dismissal, Cornejo says that Navarro should tell the truth about what happened.
“Confess!” she said, reported ABS-CBN. She noted that it is Holy Week and a good time to confess one’s sins.
She emphasized that she still views herself as the victim in the case and shouldn’t be charged with crimes.
