Court finds Cedric Lee guilty of kidnapping daughter with Vina Morales

MANILA, Philippines – The Mandaluyong City Regional Trial Court (RTC) convicted businessman Cedric Lee of kidnapping and failure to return a minor, charges which were filed against him by his ex-girlfriend, actress Vina Morales.

The two have a daughter, Ceana.

According to an ABS-CBN report, Lee was ordered to pay a fine of P300 and moral and nominal damages totaling P50,000.

Judge Anthony Fama said in his decision that the failure to return Ceana to Morales, Sharon Magdayao in real life, was "premeditated, intentional, and malicious."

In 2016, Morales had accused Lee of detaining their daughter from May 13 to 22 and for violating court-approved visitation. She said Ceana was only returned to her sister Shaina Magdayao on May 23. (READ: Vina Morales on complaint against Cedric Lee: 'This is about my child's welfare')

Lee previously denied the allegations and even filed libel cases against the actress.

Two of the libel cases were dismissed last year. – Rappler.com
