MANILA - A judge of Taguig City Regional Trial Court branch 271 conducted an inspection of the Taguig City Jail today.

Judge Paz Esperanza M. Cortes inspected the jail for 30 minutes to find out whether the threats against businessman Cedric Lee and Zimmer Raj are real or not.

Lee, one of the accused in the mauling and serious illegal detention case filed by Vhong Navarro, earlier cited threats to his life for wanting to be detained at the detention center of the National Bureau of Investigation while his case is being heard.

The Bureau of Jail Management and Penology disallowed members of the media to go inside the jail. The judge also refused to be interviewed.
