Justice Secretary Leila de Lima on Wednesday said she is ready to issue a Lookout Bulletin Order (LBO) against Cedric Lee and Deniece Millet Cornejo, who were named in a complaint involving the attack on TV host and comedian Vhong Navarro, to stop them from leaving the country.

Lee and Cornejo were charged by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) at the DOJ on Tuesday.

The DOJ received reports that the two booked a flight to Singapore for the first week of February.

“Just waiting for a formal request from either NBI or Vhong Navarro’s

camp,” de Lima said in a text message to the media.

An LBO is a “baby hold departure order” which alerts immigration officers in all ports of exit in the country on the possible flight of subject individuals.

The order does not prevent the subject from leaving the country if he or she

has no pending warrant of arrest or pending court case.

An LBO is the new name for the “watchlist order” issued by De Lima

before which stopped President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo from going abroad.

Charged with Lee and Cornejo was Lee’s sister Bernice, Ferdinand Guerrero, Zimmer Rance, an alias Mike, a John and several Peter Does.

They were charged with serious illegal detention, serious physical injuries, grave threats, grave coercion, unlawful arrest, threatening to publish and offer to prevent such publication for compensation.

The NBI proceeded with a preliminary investigation after Lee and Cornejo failed to appear for questioning.

Navarro alleged that he ganged up on by Lee and his companions when he visited Cornejo at the condominium at the Bonifacio Global City where she lives last week

The showbiz celebrity said Lee’s group tortured him and tried to extort money from him.

Cornejo meanwhile has filed a complaint of rape against Navarro.

  1. With the strong evidences against Cedric and Deniece they have no choice but to escape. They better monitor the movement of this group. No one of them would like to be jail while being tried.

  2. Sec. De Lima is very allergic if people who are charged or perpetrator of a crime, leaves Airport by means of escaping and leaving their cases unresolved. Another Gloria Arroyo in the making. The Reyes brothers successfully escape or evade justice because of Airport under the table officials. Cornejo and Lee are lovers for sure they want to set up Vhong for extortions Lee is known underworld practices. He smells his victim and estimate them we’ll.

    • POMPEYO PEDROCHE on

      So what would you have de Lima do? let the couple escape freely? For one, Deniece should not leave because she herself has filed a rape suit against Vhong. No logic for a rape victim to abandon her case. Cedric and Deniece but more than they could chew. They should the law.

    • If they are escaping to Singapore, that means they are truly guilty of mauling Vhong Navarro. It’s only common sense. lol
