THE TIPPING POINT: ATTY. RAYMOND FORTUN IS DEFENSE COUNSEL OF CEDRIC LEE




The Cedric Lee-Deniece Cornejo-Vhong Navarro saga continues. The case is widely discussed in social networks and judgments are already dispensed via Twitter and Facebook even before the cases are filed in the proper court.

When news about the mauling of Vhong Navarro trickled in, Atty. Raymond Fortun, Erap's counsel during his impeachment, pitched in his opinions via his Facebook account. It was clear from the very start that he was not buying the extortion case against Cedric Lee. He thinks that there is no extortion. He explained his opinion and not a few were clarified on his views.

Atty. Fortun's early morning post today is a breaking news. He just formalized what I have been expecting and waiting to read:

Here is Atty. Fortun's post, reposted. 

"A "tipping point" is the point at which an issue, idea, product, etc., crosses a certain threshhold and gains significant momentum, triggered by some minor factor or change. My life is somewhat an open book to people in my social circle in Facebook. I have not been afraid to speak my mind out on issues that have a public/social dimension. And i have not been wary of talking about a current raging controversy involving a TV/movie personality and a supposed "bad boy". My opinions and comments are ALL a matter of public record. What "broke the camel's back" for me to lean towards the "bad boy" was the episode in The Buzz where a supposed expert in human behaviour analysed the supposed body language of Bad Boy during his one and only interview. As my wife Carole Fortun and i were watching the explanation, i could not help but blurt out, "This is b******t! So if one tilts his head to one side, that is already indicative of lying? If one looks to the side, that means CL was asking for confirmation from somebody else? B******t!" That "The Buzz" episode made me realise how a powerful media entity can use its unlimited resources in order to sway public opinion to demonize a person. This, as a lawyer dedicated to bring out the truth, I cannot accept. I love the underdog. I never rooted for Michael Jordan because he was too good. I never cheered for Jaworski either, because everybody seemed to root for Ginebra. I enjoy the good fight, and i relish handling the toughest cases. Because of what this powerful media network and the NBI have done way beyond their respective duties to the public, Cedric Lee is, in my eyes, an underdog. Justice must be served, but it must not be in accordance with the conductor's beat of someone along Panay Avenue. So i contribute my voice into this dispute NOT TO TWIST THE TRUTH but to make sense of the madness. And i apologise to all of you if you think that i have let you down. At the end of the day, i concede that i cannot please everyone, but my only comfort is that i can face my Maker with a straight face and tell Him that i had done my duty to Him and to my profession."

 He narrated further:

Raymond Fortun It is b******t and yet this media outfit featured it. Sabi ko kay Carole, "I would LOVE to cross-examine this doctor and make her opinions look so stupid."

That very night, CL called me and asked for my help. Fate.

His Facebook followers were divided in opinion. Some were supportive.

Cherrie Villacorte-Palino I happen to watch it too.. just by actions nadedetect nung doctor na yun kung nagsisinungaling yung tao. Pati rotation ng eye parang pag to the left umikot mata mo nagsisinungaling na agad.. eh pano kung mannerism na yun.. medyo di ako naniwala sa part na yun

Claire Hazel Juco Very well said Atty. Raymond Fortun

Aaron Paul Interior swerte ni Cedric...

Jonathan B. Jimenez Hmmmm, im still divided on whats the truth. Truth shall prevail. Pag may katwiran, ipaglaban mo.

Elijah Dindo Ortiz atty ang importante ang prinsipyo nio, bilib ako sa inio at pinaglalaban nio yan

Tina C. Villalobos If you a have a money to pay atty. Fortun why not? A Lawyer is always a Lawyer...it depends who are their clients

Some were disappointed.

Honey Gee Carr CL is not credible (sira integrity niya with all his adulterous relationships) and is certainly not an underdog. He has the right to choose the best atty to defend him. Wala naman lusot Kay Jesus. Makalusot man sa court, God knows the truth. Mas nakakatakot yun.

Sandra Suarez Haha....The first underdog I've heard of with moves around with bodyguards, no less PNP escorts....the good thing about this? Your client, Cedric Lee is now facing the courts, not only through the eyes of some judge but the entire nation...this will somehow stop him from pushing his weight around...lessons come from every misfortune...good for him he found a fortun! Let me share this. In a tombstone of some lawyer it said: Here lies a lawyer who lies still! Good luck Atty. Fortun...we all know you are one of the best...just proved Cedric is no underdog after all.

Joberlie Eran im still for vhong.. I will stick to this principle "no one is above the law and no one is above God." if ma abswelto yang cedric na yan surely they will do it again...

JAy JAy Pama a billionaire underdog huh? with a history of committing adultery an underdog that can afford police escort abugado ka nga sir
Aldo Receno Yuson Kung trabaho ng abogado mag-defend, and I agree 100%, mag-defend na lang siya. Wag na subukan i-salvage ang dignidad by posting statuses like this that reeks of guilt and the need for public approval.

To those who questioned the "underdog" label, this is Atty. Fortun's explanation:
Raymond Fortun Susan Vecina Santos please read my comment again. My "underdog" comment is NOT about the merits of the case, but how this media entity has gone overboard in demonizing the person. Kung nambugbog sya, then let justice be meted out to him. But it is totally unfair to bring out a so-called "behaviour expert" and say that the person is a liar simply because he tilts his head one way.

To those who were disappointed, Atty. Fortun has this to say:

Raymond Fortun Aldo Receno Yuson I am not asking for public approval sir. But I have friends who will ask why (they have already done so thru text) and FB is the most convenient way. As I said, I do not expect you or other people to believe me, simply because you do not know me personally. For the same reason, I respect your opinion about me and will not make any effort to change your mind. 

It is indeed a not-too popular decision but everyone deserves to be represented by a counsel of his choice in the court of law. 

Some honest-to-goodness questions I want to ask Atty. Fortun: 
Have you watched the CCTV footage? Is not the video contradictory to what Cedric narrated in his first tv interview? 
Why base your decision to defend Cedric on a psychiatrist's opinion and why not give more weight on the CCTV footage that is more "factual" if you are after the truth? 
Are you convinced that Deniece Cornejo was raped? 
Do you really think it's "fate" that brought CL to you? or was it Facebook since you were so vocal with your opinions from the start that your doubt the extortion angle and someone might have tipped Cedric to call you? 
The opinion of the psychiatrist that you want to cross-examine is not that important to the case since Cedric has admitted that he and his friends mauled Vhong. How would you defend someone who has already confessed to the crime?  

Do you support Atty. Fortun's decision? Tell us in the comments section below.

 This case has become even more interesting.

UPDATE:

Atty. Raymond Fortun has clarified that he is not one of the lawyers of Cedric Lee. He is Lee's spokesman. (http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/nation/metro-manila/02/08/14/fortun-lee-spokesman-not-lawyer)

  2. Media does have a great influence not in the court of law but in the eyes of the public. But you do know what has a great influence in the court of law besides the truth? MONEY!
    THE UNDERDOG: Cedric Lee is the underdog (who is the Alpha Dog of the group). Sya ang kinakawawa ng Public because all evidence discovered is against him. They can not find any evidence against Vhong except for a piece of blotter, oh by the way is a result of an improper procedure, what is that called? fruit of the poisonous tree? Which if Vhong was not under duress, with all the new technologies nowadays, they did not record his signing of the blotter... or did they?
    During the incident, sino ang kinawawa, who was really the UNDERDOG? 1 versus 5,6, or 7? The man who calls 2 million dollars, chump change?
    The Devil's Advocate (DA): There is only one way Cedric will win this case, and it's not the truth of what transpired between Cedric, Vhong, and Deniece. DA has to prove the investigation was bias, infected, and manipulated. Technicalities. OJ Simpson walks out free again. It's good that CL found a great lawyer. He needs it more than anybody. I hope you charged him good for what you are about to do for him. Expose how the system is f**k up and maybe someday this lesson will be written in blood. I'm very sure regardless CL wins or looses this battle, CL will stop or be more cautious of all his illegal operations, that is if he has any. God bless us all and let the games begin.

  3. Aturne fortune, belib po ako sa enyo! you said you like a gud fight. ako din.. that es why I want to si the video of Vhong trying to fight all those guys with mister cedric lee. imagine as the Cedric lee stated, he fought Not that he attempted to fight for his life, but he fought because he was being restrained daw... The group beat him into a pulp because he raped Deniece. Not attempted Rape, but RAPE. forget the one minute rule of raping. I can rape someone in one minute if I have a rock solid erection and a very wet or very loose hole to stick it into. Anyway.. So someone yell Rape so everybody's adrenaline was rushing beating the ever loving crap out of vhong. And of course you saw how everybody is rushing through the lobby trying to get to Deniece's unit to aid into the beating of Vhong who is also enjoying his GOOD FIGHT. Oh by the way, did he win that fight? ha ha ha. Im pretty sure, Vhong had his fair share of good looking women and you wake up in the morning and turn to your side and prolly say "ewww I slept with this hag next to me?". Honey, can you please call me a "bad boy". BTW a team called Badboys beat a team called Chicago bulls. You are the best money can buy, mr. fortune. Im glad you are doing it because Lee is an underdog, NOT BECAUSE of money. If it's not about the money, then you don't mind disclosing how much he offered you to defend him, right?
    There is no such thing as the real truth. It does not exist, it's a myth. It's not the truth it's what you can prove. AMEN!

  5. This is just for entertainment but fun to read.. enjoy!! (",)

    Oh dang!! I should have been a movie script writer.. Lolz.. there are 2 men.. one is a successful businessman and one is a famous Actor/TV host.. both are reputed to be womanizers but they are living a double life.. they are both bi-sexual and lovers. They made a pact to keep it a secret and to keep their current female partners. However, the actor messed around with another female who happens to be one of the businessman's girl best friend. This enraged the businessman and set up the actor to the friend's place and an ugly beating took place with the help of some friends.

    During the ensuing beating, the place were the girl lives got messed up. The girl was living in a condo unit for free owned by a foreigner. After all the material and physical damages, both parties came to their senses and amicably bargained and settle for payment for the damages. Now, since both male lovers (who are both celebrities-the businessman was previously linked to a famous singer/actress) have personal interest at stake, they both want to protect their public reputation. They drafted a plan in connivance with a local police station, to turn it into a "citizen's arrest"/"attempted rape"/"defense of stranger" simple blotter report (to ensure no one's speaking) but in the premise that "no rape charges will be made".

    The actor was released and everyone went out and say goodbye and parted ways, however, the greedy TV network who the actor works for was looking for the actor because he was missing in a regular show. They found him and found out what happened. They saw a big opportunity to demolish a rival network and convinced the actor to sensationalize the incident. A public demolition job against the businessman/lover was launched in connivance with political connections. Now, the businessman hired the service of a dynamic famous lawyer to uncover the truth. The remaining scenario is a court battle of lies, deceit and real justice.. Wow.. pwede na bang pang rated PG?? Lolz (",)

  6. Atty. Fortun Im glad you are doing this to seek for the truth. This has nothing to do with you being a kapuso's pet. Of course Kapuso did not contact you to retrieve their reputation cause they are whole heartedly supporting a soon to be convicted felons. You talk about Media and nation, but the Channels get their money from the public attention. So speech is as manipulative as the media. Isn't your job is to Mess with people head so you can discredit them inside the courtroom? Your profession is to Win. Not to seek for the truth, so Try again. When your wife was shot, GMA sympathized with you more than any channel. So why not help them, right? A good lawyer doesn't seek for the truth but look for flaws to win. And everybody knows you are a good lawyer. Cut the "b******t". Next time you try to Make sense of the madness. Try to make sense on how the statement of CL and DC doesn't add up to the CCTV. Nice try Atty. Nice Try GMA, and Good luck Cedric Lee.

Pero alam nya naman ang katotohanan na puro kasinungalingan ang pinagsasabi ng kampo ni CL at DC pero talagang gusto nyang gawing tama ang mali. Sabagay that's his job as a prominent lawyer.

  13. for several cases filed by the team of navaro i think atty.fortun focus on the extortion case...let us wait to the proceedings...but at atleast we all know that they can not win on either of those cases...they do no not have evidence that deniece was raped becuase of the absence of the MC...and most exciting point is how are they going to rebutt the CCTV it was clearly shown...my question IS...IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE RAPE INCIDENCE IN JUST A MINUTE??? WITHOUT ALSO THE EVIDENCE on jer skin that she do not have any bruses or whatever she might gain from her rapist\perpetrator???it is impossible....

    ReplyDelete
  14. revised na ang definition ng rape so pwedeng may ma-rape in 1 or 2 minutes. ang iniisip ng iba dito rape is insertion of male organ to female organ kaya imposible daw ang rape in 2 minutes. but personally, when i saw the cctv footage, i was looking for signs of distress. di ko nakita kay deniece yon. assuming na hindi tampered ang footage ha.

  15. Wala naman dapat ikatakot na si Fortun ang kinuha nila lawyer. Hindi nga nya naipanalo yun kaso ni erap at yun kpatid nya hindi rin naman naipanalo ang mga ampatuan. Talagang pera lang habol nyan malamang sobra laki ng ibinayad. Matagal na din kasi nanahimik si Raymond Fortun kaya tinanggap nya to malamang wala na syang pera.

  16. Sa korte, hindi naman labanan ng kung sino ang nagsasabi ng totoo. ito ay laban ng kung sino ang magaling magrason at paikutin ang batas.
    hindi na ako magtataka kung sakaling manalo ang kampo nila Deniece at Cedric. Sa pera at koneksyon pa lang wala ng laban si Vhong.
    Mabuti na lamang at kahit papaano ay may Tony, NBI at media support si Vhong. Kaya medyo patas na rin ang laban,

  28. The spokesperson of Cedric Lee downplayed the statements made by his client prior to the filing of his counter-affidavit against actor-host Vhong Navarro, saying they should not count in the legal process.

    Speaking on radio DZMM Saturday, Atty. Raymond Fortun explained that the statements made by Lee without the help of his legal counsel cannot and should never be used against the businessman in court.

    "It was not under oath. It was without the benefit of counsel," Fortun said. "That's what lawyers are for. We are here to protect kung ano ba talaga 'yung nasa batas. So ano man 'yung sinabi ng isang tao na wala na 'yung kanyang abogado sa tabi, cannot and never be used against him in a court of law."

    1. Sabi ni Atty. Fortun, lahat ng sinabi nila Deniece at Cedric na hindi under oath ay hindi pwedeng gamitin laban sa kanila sa korte. Okay, kung ganun bakit kinakailangan nilang magsalita sa mga interview sa mga network? At least si Vhong thrice lang yung interview, in the hospital, Abunda and Korina. Ang ibig bang sabihin yung mga interview nila Deniece at Cedric para makisimpatiya sa kanila ang mga tao? Since they can not affirm all their accusations are under oath means lahat ng sinabi nilang kwento ay kasinungalingan.

    2. Sabi ni Atty. Fortun, lahat ng sinabi nila Deniece at Cedric na hindi under oath ay hindi pwedeng gamitin laban sa kanila sa korte.

  30. Nakunan ng cctv ang paghalik ni cedric kay deniece. Hanggang kelan ba pagtatakpan ng spokesman ang kasinungalingan ng isang cedric lee? na-hulicam na, deny pa din? di daw passionate yon mga kababayan! sa elevator, may mga kasabay, hahalikan sa puno ng kabilaang tenga ang deniece? friendly kiss nga lang naman. kayo na ang friends! hohoho!

  31. What is the interntion of this attorney to side with the obviously lying side? He just wanted to disprove the psychologist? He just wanted to show the world that he is a great lawyer protecting the "underdog"? His tipping point explanation is silly. If you are an attorney with honor and dignity, you will accept the side on which you believe is true and right and not for any other silly reasons. After all if you want the truth to come out, should you side on what you think is true and right? It will be shameful if you side on what you think is not true and pays a higher amount and go against the truth if you are fighting for the real truth. If you know that you are siding to the untruthful side, will you try to hide the real truth and present the truth based on how the untruthful side sees and tries to project the truth? By this attorney's accepting as the spokesperson of what the majority think is the untruthful side, he lends his services in exchange for a most likely huge amount and believes that this side is the truthful side. His loyalty is in this side since he is being paid for his services. Can he really go against who is paying him huge amount just to show the real truth? I believe that whoever is paying him is what he will portray to the court and media is the truth even though deep inside him it may not be the real truth.
