MANILA - Vhong Navarro thanked everyone who played a part in the arrest of businessman Cedric Lee, one of the 7 accused in the controversial mauling of the actor.
Speaking on "It's Showtime" on Saturday, Navarro expressed his gratitude to Justice Secretary Leila De Lima, the Department of Justice, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), and the Philippine National Police.
"Sa lahat ng mga nagbantay sa Eastern Samar, maraming maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat," he said.
Lee, according to De Lima, was arrested by the NBI on Saturday morning, along with another suspect, Simeon Raz.
Lee was arrested for the criminal charges of grave coercion and serious illegal detention, which is a non-bailable offense, in connection with the January 22 incident that left Navarro with serious injuries.
