Fortun, who stands as the official spokesperson for Cedric Lee and Deniece Cornejo, explained that as per the video “Maybe it’s just me, but it looks like the girl didn’t even want to be kissed. Others will think otherwise. What matters is, again, what I PERSONALLY KNOW.”

Lawyer Raymond Fortun on Friday said new CCTV footage showing businessman Lee kissing model Deniece Cornejo inside an elevator is a “non-issue.”

Atty. Fortun posted an explanation about the CCTV footage on his Facebook page.

I have met with DC (Deniece Cornejo) and CL (Cedric Lee) in a meeting and over dinner. Di ko nakita nor naramdaman na close sila. For me, this is another non-issue because it does not prove or disprove the parties’ version of events that night.

I will NOT say that the CCTV lies. We all saw what we saw. And yes, I’m glad that you noticed that the big group was so relaxed when they went inside the elevator. So… Doesn’t look like this group was heading for a fight, tama ba?

I would object to the use of the word ‘passionately’ then I would pull out the definition from the dictionary. Then I would pull my wife and kiss her in a passionate manner to prove my point. I expect to be sustained by the judge.

First public statement of CL that they are just friends? As I said, it seemed that the girl didn’t even want to be kissed. CL didn’t even embrace her, nor did she embrace back. So… the kisses on the cheeks aside, it (won’t) affect the case.”
