Marjorie Barretto Admits Photo Scandal surface online

Wednesday, 8 May 2013 0 comments

After denying the scandal photo posted by some bloggers, Marjorie Barretto, as confirmed by the actress-politician's legal counsel Atty. Lorna Kapunan, is indeed the woman in the scandalous photos now circulated online.

Earlier the actress denied and said during an interview with PEP, "No. That's not me," the Caloocan city councilor told the Philippine Entertainment Portal. "I would never do something like that. That's not my nature."

“She’s a mother, she’s very upset. She’s not running for any public office precisely because she wants to guard her privacy. She has growing up daughters and ang concern niya is they are in the formative years where they understand. That’s why we are also respecting the media na sana huwag na interviewhin si Marj,” Atty. Lorna Kapunan said in an interview with ABS-CBN News on Tuesday, May 7.

An unverified commenter named “Lorna P. Kapunan” posted on The Filipino Scribe asking the blog to take Marjorie’s photos down. Here’s what she wrote:

Dear Mr. Blogger,
We write on behalf of our client, Ms. Marjorie Barretto.
We received information that you have made public a write-up and two (2) very private photos of her, which were not intended for public consumption.
Please note that your publication of said article and the photos in your blog site is a clear violation of our client’s Constitutional right to privacy and a blatant defiance of Republic Act No. 9995 also known as the “Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009.” Be informed that RA 9995 clearly and categorically punishes the act of publishing or broadcasting, or causing to be published or broadcasted, whether in print or broadcast media or through the internet, the photo of a person showing her private areas. To emphasize, the subject photos were intended not to be made public and your dissemination of these private photos was without our client’s consent.
The matter of the dissemination and uploading of the afore-mentioned photos is already the subject of an investigation by the National Bureau of Investigation. We are taking all legal steps to ensure that the right to privacy of our client is respected. We will pursue all the appropriate legal actions necessary to ensure that those principally responsible for this criminal action are punished.
In view of the foregoing, we ask that your write-up about our client and the subject photos be immediately taken down and removed from your site. Otherwise, we will also be constrained to file the necessary actions against you.
We thank you in advance for your immediate attention on this matter. 
Very truly yours,
KAPUNAN GARCIA & CASTILLO

LORNA PATAJO-KAPUNAN”

 The follow-up comment of “Lorna P. Kapunan” apparently indicates admission on the part of her client. She wrote:

Dear Mr. Blogger,
Thank you for your reply. In response thereto, please note that Ms. Barreto informed us that she made the initial remark denying the photos before she actually saw them. Later, after seeing the photos, Ms. Barretto told us that it is her.
We look forward that you will take down the photos soonest.”
