Delfin Lee is still languishing in Pampanga provincial jail even if the warrant of arrest against him has already been recalled, quashed and lifted and the Information for syndicated estafa in Criminal Case No. 18480 has already been quashed because the DOJ Review Resolution was declared void for lack of probable cause by the Court of Appeals.
Delfin Lee was invited by the operatives of the Task Force Tugis of PNP but later on detained and arrested on the claim that the quashal, recall and lifting of his warrant of arrest by the Court of Appeals is not yet final and executory because HDMF appealed the appellate court’s decision to the Supreme Court.
The Court of Appeals granted the petition of Delfin Lee in CA G.R. SP. No. 127553 and voided the probable cause ruling of Judge Reyes of the Pampanga RTC for having been issued with grave abuse of discretion amounting to lack or excess of jurisdiction. The warrant of arrest against Delfin Lee was likewise recalled, quashed and lifted directly enjoining the PNP, NBI and all law enforcement agencies not to implement the warrant of arrest. Judge Reyes was also directed by the appellate court not to anymore proceed against Delfin Lee in Criminal Case No. 18480.
The Court of Appeals dismissed HDMF’s Petition for Certiorari in CA G.R. SP. 128262 questioning the Summary Judgment of the Makati RTC that ruled that HDMF was the one responsible for the approval of the PAG-IBIG membership and the PAG-IBIG loan applications of the alleged fictitious and ghost buyers at the Xevera projects of Globe Asiatique. These  alleged ghost and fictitious buyers are the ones being used by HDMF in filing the case for syndicated estafa against Delfin Lee and the rest of the accused in Criminal Case No. 18480. The Court of Appeals likewise declared that the Summary Judgment…
The Court of Appeals granted the petition of Atty.  Alvarez in CA G.R. SP. No. 127690 and voided the probable cause ruling of Judge Reyes of the Pampanga RTC for having been issued with grave abuse of discretion amounting to lack or excess of jurisdiction. The warrant of arrest against Atty. Alvarez was likewise recalled, quashed and lifted directly enjoining the PNP, NBI and all law enforcement agencies not to implement the warrant of arrest. Judge Reyes was also directed by the appellate court not to anymore proceed against Atty. Alvarez in Criminal Case No. 18480.
The Court of Appeals quashed the Information for Syndicated Estafa against all the accused in Criminal Case No. 18480 for lack of probable cause. The Appellate Court likewise lifted, recalled and quashed the warrant of arrest issued by Judge Reyes against accused Christina Sagun.
The Court of Appeals granted the Petition for Certiorari of accused Christina Sagun in CA. G.R. SP No. 121346 and declared as null and void the Review Resolution of DOJ indicting her, Delfin Lee and others of the crime of syndicated estafa, for lack of probable cause.
The Summary Judgment in Civil Case No. 10-1120 was declared by the RTC-Branch 58 of Makati City as final, executory and immutable in view of the failure of HDMF or the PAG-IBIG  Fund to file a motion for reconsideration or appeal from the said summary judgment.
Judge Reyes denied Delfin and Dexter Lee’s motion for reconsideration of the May 22, 2012 Resolution finding probable cause against them for the crime of syndicated estafa.
Judge Reyes denied the Motion for Judicial Determination of Probable Cause in Criminal Case No. 18480 filed by Delfin Lee and the other accused and the corresponding warrants of arrest against them were issued. This Resolution was challenged by accused Delfin & Dexter Lee, and Atty. Alex Alvarez before the Court of Appeals for being void as it was issued with grave abuse of discretion amounting to lack or excess of jurisdiction.
As soon as the TRO/Injunction issued by RTC-Branch 167 of Pasig City was dissolved by the Court of Appeals, DOJ filed the Information for syndicated estafa against Delfin Lee, Dexter Lee, Christina Sagun, Cristina Salagan, and Atty. Alex Alvarez and the case was raffled on April 30, 2012 to RTC-Branch 42 of San Fernando, Pampanga presided by  Judge Maria Amifaith S. Fider-Reyes. This is docketed as Criminal Case No. 18480.
The RTC-Branch 58 Makati City rendered a Summary Judgment declaring HDMF guilty of breach of its contracts with Globe Asiatique. HDMF is ordered to release the titles to fully paid buyers and off-set from the money of Globe Asiatique in its possession the unpaid balances of the delinquent buyers/borrowers. The Summary Judgment also ruled that  HDMF was the one which approved the PAG-IBIG membership and housing loan applications of the alleged fictitious and ghost buyers, hence, according to the court, it cannot escape with impunity by simply alleging that the buyers whose PAG-IBIG membership and whose PAG-IBIG loan applications HDMF…
The RTC- Branch 167  of Pasig City issued a TRO against DOJ preventing the latter from filing the Information for syndicated estafa in court because of the existence of prejudicial question, an issue that is for resolution in Civil Case No.10-1120 that will determine whether or not the charge for syndicated estafa will prosper.  
Prosecutor General Arellano issued a Review Resolution raising the offense charged to syndicated estafa from the original recommendation of the DOJ Panel for the filing of simple estafa only against Delfin Lee and two others. This DOJ Review Resolution was challenged by accused Christina Sagun directly before the Court of Appeals for grave abuse of discretion amounting to lack or excess of jurisdiction on the part of DOJ.
HDMF & NBI filed against Delfn Lee, officials and employees of Globe Asiatique, and Atty. Alex Alvarez, a notary public working at HDMF as manager of Foreclosure Department, with the crime of syndicated estafa before the DOJ. This is docketed as NPS Docket No. XVI-INV-10J-00319
