David Bunevacz confirmed that Cedric Lee wrongfully accused him, held him against his will, physically violated, terrorized and death-threatened him. And he added that, that very well what had happened to Vhong Navarro in the hands of Cedric Lee. David Bunevacz and Jessica Rodriguez fled the Philippines in 2007. Now, David Bunevacz confirmed that they left the Philippines for fear of their lives and the lives of their children. Here is the official statement of David Bunevacz:

“I have heard of what happened to Vhong and Cedric and it greatly saddens me. It painfully brought back memories of our own tragic experience almost seven years ago.

“Like Vhong, I was wrongfully accused, held against my will, physically violated, terrorized and death-threatened.

“It was in 2007 when we decided to leave the country for fear of our lives and the lives of our children. It was as if the rug was pulled from under our feet in an instant.

“Today, the physical pain and emotional burden have since then healed, and by the grace of God, we have found peace away from them all.

“The one good thing that came out of that terrible chapter is us discovering the Lord and His awesome grace. We know now that God is the only power that can heal the deepest wounds.

“Happiness has found us again because we chose to forgive the way the Lord has also forgiven us. We have lifted everything up to the Lord for He is sovereign.

“What happened to Vhong is not the first time such a crime had been committed. It is clear that evil deeds are being exposed. I pray that this will be the last time that it will happen.

“We continue to pray that one day, the truth about the accusations publicly hurled against us will be known and we will finally get our justice.

Thank you to everyone sending their words of encouragement. My family and I greatly appreciate all the support!”
