Revilla enraged by Ram-Janelle sex vid

Senator orders NBI to investigate

Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. has sought the help of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in identifying the people behind the leaked sex video between his deceased brother, Ramgen, and his girlfriend Janelle Manahan.

"Sobrang pambababoy ang ginagawa nila sa kapatid ko. Karumal-dumal na nga ang pagkamatay ni Ramgen, sinisira pa nila ang pagkatao," Revilla said in a statement Tuesday.

"Mas grabe pa ang pambababoy na ginagawa nila kay Janelle. Grabe na ang kanyang pinagdaanan, at pilit pa nilang niyuyurakan ang pagkababae nito ngayon," he added.

According to reports, Manahan’s lawyer, Argee Guevarra, claimed that the video, which circulated via social networking sites last week, showing Ramgen having intercourse with his girlfriend in a restroom is authentic.

“This video represents the second assassination of Ramgen and second frustrated murder of Janelle orchestrated and masterminded by the Bautista household,” Guevarra said in an ABS-CBN report.

Leaked video 'against the law'

The senator asked the NBI to conduct an investigation and prosecute the culprits under the Anti-Voyeurism Law of 2009 (RA 9995).  It prohibits any person from taking photos or shooting videos of a person or group of persons performing sexual acts or capturing the image of the private area of a person/s such as the naked or undergarment-clad genitals, buttocks or female breast without the consent of the person/s involved.

It also prohibits anyone from copying the photo or video by any means.

"This means that every person who downloads, copies and sends the video is guilty of committing the offense, regardless if they were the original uploaders," Revilla said.

The law provides a penalty of  imprisonment  of not less than three years but not more than seven years and a fine of not less than P100,000 but not more than P500,000, or both.

Ramgen's siblings blackmailing Janelle?

Ramgen was stabbed to death in October last year inside his residence in Parañaque City while his girlfriend, who was shot, survived.

Manahan is the lone witness against Ramgen siblings Ramon Joseph and Ramona, who have been charged in their brother’s  murder.

Manahan’s lawyer revealed that Ramgen's siblings were able to get hold of the slain actor's belongings, including a laptop that contained the videos. He further noted that his client has been receiving blackmail messages from one of the younger siblings of Ramgen.

On the other hand, Ramgen’s mother, Genelyn Magsaysay, vehemently denied that she or any of Ramgen's siblings uploaded the sex video and that her family no longer has access to any of his personal gadgets and belongings after his murder.
