Vhong Navarro has revealed that the deleted text messages between him and Deniece Cornejo have been retrieved.
Navarrro’s camp said the said messages could support their version of the story that Cedric Lee’s group just wanted to extort money from Vhong.
The lawyer is not familiar with the process used by the government agency to recover the text messages but they thank the National Bureau of Investigation for the work they have done.
They are now looking for other evidence to verify that the messages are in fact genuine.
The lawyer is also getting confirmatory records from telecoms companies that will show that these messages were sent and received in a particular day.
These are transaction records that are kept by telecoms companies that show text messages are sent and received by subscribers.
Cornejo and company have accused Navarro that the actor raped the model and was just accosted by Cedric Lee and his companions inside the condominium unit Cornejo was staying in at the Bonifacio Global City.
But Vhong said he was beaten, threatened and Lee’s group extorted money from him and the accusation is part of the plan.
