Deniece Cornejo PHOTO COURTESY OF DENIECE CORNEJO

MANILA, Philippines—The saga has another chapter.

After Deniece Cornejo broke her silence a week ago, it’s her family’s turn to face the camera.

“Up to now, I’m still in shock,” Dennis Cornejo, the father, said through phone patch in an interview with a Sunday TV talk show.

The elder Cornejo echoed his daughter’s sentiments that Ferdinand “Vhong” Navarro should man-up in the case.

“To Vhong, he should man up, be a man, tell the truth,” the elder Cornejo said.

Ana Miles, the godmother of the younger Cornejo, said that she is angry at what is happening to her goddaughter.

Special treatment

Attorney Dennis Calleja, the legal counsel of Cornejo and Cedric Lee, said in the same show that Navarro has been receiving special treatment with the way the police has given the actor an elaborate security measure.

“Navarro is surrounded by this police force for his security,” Calleja said. “Instead of being out there, serving the country.”

He added that when it comes to death threats, his clients are more in danger than Navarro.

    Pathetic Raymund Fortun, How much you received from Cedic Lee. Don’t make us dumb, you fool.

    Your analogy to basketball player toward RULES and TRUTH were contradicting to your sworn statement as a lawyer! TRUTH is different from WINNING games/CASE!

    JUST ADMIT IT, MONEY CAN BUY YOUR HAPINESS AS A LAWYER, IT IS A PROFESSION BY THE WAY, DOCTORS GET PAID FOR ANY OPERATION/ HEALING METHOD THEY DO TO CLIENTS. VENDORS GET PAID TO ITS PRODUCT BOUGHT BY BUYERS. AND YOU AS LAWYER GET PAID ALSO PAID FOR ‘DEFENDING’ YOUR CLIENT BE IT TRUTH OR NOT JUST YOU CAN DEFEND AND MAKE TWIST OF THE TRUTH, OH YES MONEY. MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL.

    I understand where Atty. Calleja and Atty Fortun are coming from. They have to defend their client. All of us or every person/accused no matter how evil for that matter has a right to a good counsel, 1987 Constitution Article III Section 12, also known as Bill of Rights.They might sound stupid or foolish and we might abhor them till kingdom come. But that is their job. Defense lawyers in general have a very difficult job. It will be easy for them if they truly know that their client is innocent, but if their client during one of their closed door meetings confessed to them that they are guilty and told them to defend them in court and not to settle out of court. They are bound to defend them. That’s the time that they will use all kinds of legal maneuvering, file all kinds of motions, every delaying tactics in the book, you name it.The problem really lies in our present justice system. Just look at the Ampatuan case.

    According to a Abs-cbn news article AFTER VHONG MAULING, DENIECE BOUGHT LAPTOP WITH EDITING SOFTWARE.” (Bought the laptop Jan 26) “She needed a laptop with photo editing because she is a model,” Atty Fortun said. That was 4 days after her very “traumatic experience”. Hmmnnn
