NBI arrests Lee sister-A A +A
Monday, April 21, 2014
BERNICE Lee, sister of businessman Cedric Lee, was arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on Monday night on grave coercion charges in connection with the mauling of actor-television host Vhong Navarro last January 22.
NBI-National Capital Region director Elfren Meneses said Lee went with the agents around 7 p.m. after serving the warrant issued by Judge Bernard Bernal of the Taguig Metropolitan Trial Court branch 74 at her residence in San Juan City.
Lee was then brought to the NBI-NCR headquarters, where she underwent booking procedure and medical test.
The court earlier placed P12,000 bail for her temporary freedom.
Lee is also one of the seven accused in the serious illegal detention case, a non-bailable offense, but the judge did not include her in the arrest order dated April 16. (Sunnex)
