MANILA – The Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Class of 1976 is denying any links to businessman Cedric Lee, who is accused of mauling actor-host Vhong Navarro last January 22.

"Cedric Lee is not in any way connected with the class, neither honorary or whatever… being dragged into such a controversy as this is not a welcomed matter," said former Deputy Director General Eduardo Acuña, PMA Class '76 president.

Records from the Securities and Exchange Commision revealed that Lee had entered into several business ventures with members of the PMA class.

Former Philippine National Police (PNP) deputy director general for administration and now Tuguegarao City Mayor Jefferson Soriano is a board member and incorporator of Colossal Mining.

Meanwhile, former PNP director for logistics Gen. Luizo Ticman and former PNP director for records management Gen. Abner Cabalquinto were listed as incorporators and board members of Verticabares Agro-Industrial.
