Philippine immigration officers were ordered to be on the lookout for businessman Cedric Lee, model Deniece Cornejo, and three others allegedly involved in the mauling of actor and television host Vhong Navarro.
This developed after the Bureau of Immigration issued a lookout bulletin for Lee, Cornejo, Bernice Lee, Ferdinand Guerrero, and Zimmer Raz on Thursday noon, according to a report by Ina Reformina.
The order was requested by National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Chief Virgilio Mendez after he wrote a letter to Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, citing the “high probability of flight” of the respondents.
However, the bulletin doesn’t prevent them from leaving the country.
Navarro filed on Tuesday charges of serious physical injuries, grave threat, grave coercion, unlawful arrest, blackmail and serious illegal detention, which is a non-bailable offense, against Lee, Cornejo, and his other attackers.
