The group of businessman Cedric Lee, is accused on uploading the sex video of Hayden Kho and Katrina Halili which surfaced on the internet years ago, after Katrina Halili's lawyer requested an investigation over a pattern of extortion linked to the group.
Atty. Raymund Palad, the lawyer of actress Katrina Halili, requested the Department of Justice which confirmed by Justice Secretary Leila de Lima to investigate the claims that Cedric Lee had a hand over the spread of Kho's sex videos, which Halili is one of the actresses who was seen in the video.
Katrina Halili became the most controversial among the women seen in the videos, by filing charges against Hayden Kho.
Atty. Raymund Palad stressed that it was Kho who revealed that Cedric Lee was trying to extort money from him, which he added on a claim of a possible pattern of extortion against to the group.
"Mismong ang kampo ni Hayden ang nagsabi sa husgado na kinokotongan sila ni Cedric Lee. Matagal ko nang isinulat sa (Department of Justice) yan pero di inaksyunan".The sex video controversy stripped Kho's doctor's license which was investegated by Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr.
On the other hand, Kho's mother, Irene, was also involved in the criminal and libel case due to her latter's statements against the actress Katrina Halili.
THE EXTORTION STORY:Hayden Kho said that before the sex scandal started to surface online, the group was trying to extort an amount of P4 million from him or else the videos would come out.
A very similar extortion story with what Vhong Navarro earlier revealed in his affidavit, which Cedric's group took a video of him with his pants down after he was beaten up, when the group tried to extort P2-million from him or the video of his private parts will come out.
De Lima has now ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to investigate Lee's possible involvement in the Hayden Kho sex scandal.
Meanwhile, Cedric Lee's lawyer criticized the Department Of Justice (DOJ) for trying to tag his client to another scandal issue.
