WATCH: 'DOWN-TO-EARTH' DUTERTE ANIME ELATES FB SUPPORTERS

- A short Japanese anime clip featuring a down-to-earth President Rodrigo Duterte has made the rounds on social media after it was posted on Facebook on Sunday, Sept. 18. Davao Nikkei Jin Anime Club and Facebook page Bisayaball conceptualized a 1-minute-and-28-second clip entitled “El Presidente,” which details significant events of Duterte’s campaign, including his State of the Nation Address where he is seated beside Sen. Koko Pimentel and Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez. As pinpointed by many anime fans, the track played in the video was “Silhouette,” the opening theme song of “Naruto: Shippuden” performed by Japanese rock band Kana Boon. Likewise, the video featured a scene wherein Duterte, wearing ordinary clothes and rubber slippers, answers queries from the media while sitting in a monobloc chair at his humble home in Doña Luisa Subdivision, Davao City. In most parts of the video, the President was portrayed with his “trademark” macho image of riding a motorbike wearing a leather jacket, repelling “evil” monsters, “Yellowtards,” and drug lords.

DE LIMA SEX VIDEO: 'We’ll testify we’re in sex video', say netizensPhilippine Daily Inquirer By: Jeannette I. Andrade, October 1st, 2016 04:13 AM


DE LIMA: SEX VIDEO IS FAKE

It began noon of Friday with a simple message: “I would like to testify in Congress. It was me in the sex video. #Everywoman.”

By early afternoon, the hashtag started trending as Twitter and Facebook were flooded with tweets and posts from #Everywoman, #Everyman and #Everyhuman who expressed their outrage over the proposal in the House of Representatives to make public a sex video purportedly showing Sen. Leila de Lima.

The senator is being linked in the ongoing congressional hearing to the illegal drug trade in New Bilibid Prison, with Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez saying that the sex video would show the intimate relationship between De Lima and her driver and alleged bagman.

Several lawmakers have objected to Alvarez’s proposal, saying that the video—which they described as “unacceptable and reprehensible”—had not been authenticated.

Showing such material in public was not only against the law, it was also inadmissible as evidence in court, they added.

Public shaming

Netizens similarly described the video as “public shaming” and #Everywoman, which started as a group of women’s campaign of support for De Lima, soon breathed a life of its own and expanded to include #Everyman and #Everyhuman.

In Bacolod City, Alvarez on Friday said he would leave it up to the House committee on justice to decide whether to show the video.

“If the committee members decide to present it at their committee hearing I will have no objection,” Alvarez said during the oath-taking of more than 200 new members of Partido ng Demokratikong Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban).

He said the committee would consider as well the concerns expressed by some women’s groups about showing the video at the hearing.

Among those who initially tweeted the message were former government officials and members of civil society and women’s groups.

But netizens like @OhItsNancyyy echoed their sentiments and tweeted, “Hindi lang kasi ako babae. Tao rin ako. At lahat ng tao ay dapat nakakakuha ng respeto mula sa ibang tao (I am not just a woman. I am a human being who deserve respect from others) #Everywoman #Everyman.”

In a message to the House of Representatives, @MlaCouchPotato wrote: “I am the one in the sex video. I am your mother, your daughter, your sister. Slut-shamed and beaten down by misogyny #Everywoman.”

For @StewieOng, “No one deserves this public shaming. Not Sandra. Not Mocha. Not Leila. #Everywoman.” Similarly, @atwulf offered to testify in Congress because he said he was in the sex video. He used the hashtags #Everyhuman and

#Everywoman in his tweet.

Barbarity

Tweeted @oldrichofmanila:“No puede! Que barbaridad! It stops being funny when it is not true and when it degrades the humanity of being a woman. Barbaros! #Everywoman.”

“I support #Everywoman because I have a mother, grandmother, titas, nieces and specially a wife,” @rojan88 said.

@isssuh and @narrajr stressed the right of every woman to privacy and dignity and said: “#Everywoman deserves to be as sexual as she wants to without people sticking their nose in her business.”

@MujerMaldita basically summed up the message of the campaign in her tweet that said, “Whenever you shame a woman, remember the very person who gave birth to you. You shame one, you shame us all. #Everywoman.” With a report from Carla P. Gomez, Inquirer Visayas/TVJ

Sen. Leila de Lima. INQUIRER FILE PHOTO/LYN RILLON

There are at least two congressmen in the House of Representatives who watched the alleged sex scandal of Senator Leila De Lima, cautioning against showing the video in the congressional inquiry into the alleged Bilibid drug trade.

In a press briefing of the minority bloc on Wednesday, Buhay Rep. Lito Atienza and Minority Floor Leader Quezon Rep. Danny Suarez admitted to watching the alleged sex videos and offered no compliments to the alleged main performer De Lima.

“’Yung video showing na napanood ko, hindi naman dapat ipakita pa sa inyong lahat. Hindi niyo nakita? Maswerte kayo. Dahil hindi kayo nakakita ng horror story (The video that I watched shouldn’t be shown to everyone. You haven’t watched it yet? You’re lucky because you haven’t seen a horror story),” Atienza said.

“Tama yung reaksyon ni Pangulong Duterte. Pag nakikita ko yun, nawawalan ako ng gana (President Duterte’s reaction is right. When I see the vide, I lose my appetite),” he added, referring to the reaction of President Rodrigo Duterte on the alleged video of her staunchest critic.

Amid the ruckus of laughter from the audience, Atienza interjected that the performers in the video were ugly.

“Ako napanood ko, pangit yung mga performers eh (I have watched it, the performers were ugly),” Atienza said.

For his part, Suarez denied when asked by a female reporter if publicly showing and laughing at the alleged sex tape equate to slut-shaming and a form of phallic dominance.

Phallic dominance pertains to a form of dominance over the other gender by virtue of the possession of a penis.

“Of course not! Miss, this happened already. Tapos na ito, na-unearth na ito before (This has been done and unearthed before),” Suarez told the female reporter who cried foul over phallic domination.

Suarez then took the opportunity of praising the male performer in the alleged video.

“Kahapon ko lang nakita yung video. Magaling yung partner ha (I just saw the video yesterday. The male performer is good). Her partner is quite good,” Suarez said.

The minority bloc maintained that it opposed the suggestion of Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez to show the video in the Bilibid inquiry in a bid to establish that De Lima had a relationship with her former driver Ronnie Dayan, her alleged bagman in the Bilibid drug trade.

“Siguro naman hindi kailangang ipakita pa yung (I don’t think it’s necessary to show the) video in a congressional hearing. I would have to ask (Justice) Secretary (Vitaliano) Aguirre to think twice of this proposal to show that in a congressional hearing,” Suarez said.

But he followed that in jest with a caveat that the video may be shown if it had better-looking performers.

“Kung maganda sa mata, okay. Kung hindi, eh huwag na ipakita (If the performers were good-looking, it would be all right. Otherwise, let’s not show it),” Suarez said. RAM

Alvarez: Nothing wrong if De Lima ‘sex video’ shown in probe SHARES: 4356 VIEW COMMENTS INQUIRER.net  By: Marc Jayson Cayabyab, September 28th, 2016 11:17 AM


ALVAREZ: Nothing wrong if alleged De Lima sex video shown in probe

Speaker Pantaleon “Bebot” Alvarez on Wednesday said he would allow the House of Representatives justice committee investigating the alleged Bilibid drug trade to present the alleged sex scandal of Senator Leila De Lima.

“Para sa akin, wala naman sigurong deperensiya na ipanood ‘yan para malaman ng tao kung talagang totoo ‘yan o hindi (I don’t see anything wrong if we show it to the public so the people can judge if it’s true or not),” Alvarez said in an ambush interview after the majority bloc caucus.

He denied that showing the sex video would be a form of “slut-shaming” against De Lima, who crossed swords with President Rodrigo Duterte when she led a Senate investigation into the extrajudicial killings at the height of the administration’s war on drugs.

Davao Del Norte Rep. Alvarez and Duterte are key allies. De Lima’s strained relationship with the president started when De Lima as then human rights chair investigated Duterte’s alleged links to the vigilante group Davao Death Squad when the latter was then Davao city mayor.

Alvarez called the sex video the only material evidence to prove De Lima had a relationship with her purported lover, her former driver Ronnie Dayan, who inmates in the national penitentiary and a National Bureau of Investigation official said collected pay-offs for De Lima from the Bilibid drug trade.

“Ipapalabas natin hindi dahil gusto natin panoorin. I-establish lang ‘yung katotohanan kung may relasyon o wala. Kasi ang sinasabing walang relasyon, eh paano mo ipo-prove kung may relasyon o wala. Ito eh, isa itong material para magpatunayan kung may relasyon o wala,” Alvarez said.

(We are going to show it because we want to watch it. We will establish if there is any truth to claims that they are in a relationship. It has been denied before, but how do you prove it? This is the only material that can prove if they have a relationship or not.)

Alvarez said neither the law nor the House rules would be violated if the House justice committee allows the public viewing of the alleged sex scandal.

“Kung kinakailangan dahil para ‘yun mag-uugnay kung talagang mayroong personal relationship. Kung ayaw naman ni Senator De Lima na mag-appear dito sa House of Representatives, let the public judge kung talagang tooo ‘yung sex video tape na ‘yan,” Alvarez said.

(It is to prove if she really has a personal relationship with her driver. If Senator De Lima does not want to appear at the House of Representatives, let the public judge

Alvarez denied that the Bilibid investigation in aid of legislation only presented hearsay evidence to destroy De Lima’s reputation.

“Itong investigation na ginagawa natin sa Kongreso, madalas ma-misinterpret na we are trying somebody, sinasabi hearsay rule. Hindi naman tayo nagpo-prosecute ng individual dito eh (Some quarters are interpreting the Congressional probe as a trial, and claiming that we are presenting hearsays. But we are not prosecuting an individual here). This is not a criminal proceeding. That’s why the hearsay rule does not apply,” Alvarez said.

He reiterated that the investigation only intended to come up with a law to stamp out the illegal drug trade in the penitentiary.

Alvarez said he has talked to justice committee chair Oriental Mindoro Rep. Reynaldo Umali and said that there is no need to recommend charges against De Lima.

“Sinasabi ko kay Chairman Umali at saka sa Committee on Justice, huwag na tayo magrekumenda ng kahit na sino na ipo-prosecute rito. Ang kailangan natin dito ay maglabas ng panukalang batas kung saan ma-a-address natin ang problema sa New Bilibid Prison (I told Chairman Umali and the Committee on Justice not to recommend charges anymore. What we need is come up with proposed legislation to address the problems at the New Bilibid Prison),” Alvarez said. IDL

Showing of De Lima ‘sex video’ disrespectful, illegal – LP SHARES: 942 VIEW COMMENTS
INQUIRER.net By: Maila Ager, September 29th, 2016 02:54 PM

Senator Leila de Lima’s colleagues in the Liberal Party (LP) vehemently opposed the House of Representatives’ plan to show her alleged sex scandal in its inquiry, saying it was “disrespectful, deplorable and illegal.”

READ: Coming soon at House: Sex, lies and videotape

“We vehemently oppose the plan of the House of Representatives to show the alleged videos as disrespectful, deplorable, and illegal,” the LP senators said in a joint statement on Thursday.

The joint statement was issued by Senate President Pro Tempore Franklin Drilon, vice chairman of LP, and Senators Francis Pangilinan and Bam Aquino.

“Regardless of the authenticity of the alleged videos, viewing it is disrespectful to a sitting senator, to her person, and to the office she holds, and is violative of the law,” the statement added.

The senators said showing De Lima’s alleged videos would be in violation of the following laws:

READ MORE...

— Republic Act (RA) 9995 or the Anti-Voyeurism Law, which prohibits the recording or broadcast of videos of a sexual act, among others, with or without the consent of the persons featured in the material. Such recordings are also inadmissible even in legislative hearings.

— RA 4200 or the Anti Wiretapping, which prohibits and penalizes the playing of recordings of any private communication without the consent of those involved. Such recordings are also inadmissible as evidence even in legislative hearings.

—Revised Penal Code on Crimes against Honor: Slander by Deed which is by performing an act intended to cast dishonor, disrespect, or contempt upon a person, or incriminatory machinations, which may either be incriminating an innocent person in the commission of a crime by planting evidence or intriguing against honor by resorting to any scheme, plot, design, but not by direct spoken words, to destroy the reputation of another.

“We appeal to the members of House of Representatives to be more circumspect of our larger roles as legislators: safekeepers of governance traditions and examples to our children,” the LP senators added.

It was Senator Grace Poe who questioned the legality of playing the videos supposedly to prove De Lima’s relationship with former driver Ronnie Dayan, who had allegedly collected drug money for her at the New Bilibid Prison.

“I have reservations about the legality of the playing of alleged sex video, which will violate the very law that Congress passed,” Poe said Wednesday, also citing the Anti-Voyeurism Law.

“It will serve no legal and practical purpose as the law makes such unlawful act of showing inadmissible in evidence in any judicial, quasi-judicial, legislative or administrative hearing or investigation,” she added. CDG/rga
