QC prosecutor denies being in sex video


MANILA, Philippines–It’s not him in the sex video.

The lawyer of a Quezon City prosecutor, who is being investigated by the Department of Justice in a sex video scandal, said Tuesday it was not his client in the video of a couple having sex.

“He is not the one in the video,” said Modesto Ticam Jr., lawyer for the QC prosecutor. “He is innocent. His conscience is clear.”

The QC prosecutor was a no-show at Tuesday’s preliminary investigation of the complaint filed against him by his wife because of “commitments” involving his job.

Asked why the prosecutor had not categorically denied that he was not the man in the video, Ticam said: “I am denying it now.”

The sex video scandal case was transferred to the DOJ after the QC prosecutor’s office inhibited itself from investigating the complaint. The woman in the video is supposedly a lawyer in the Public Assistance Office in the QC Hall of Justice.

Ticam said he could not make any more statements because the DOJ prosecutor had told both parties to treat the case with “confidentiality.”

Prosecutor General Claro Arellano said the media should not identify the parties of the case because the ‘‘parties requested for confidentiality’’.

The wife of the prosecutor who filed the case was at the hearing and told reporters that clearly it was her husband and his woman who were in the sex video, upon learning the defense made by his lawyer that it was not him in the video.

“He filed a case of voyeurism against me. Why file such case if you are not in the video,” the wife said.

She also denied the robbery and other cases filed against her by her husband involving among others, his BMW car that she had towed. She said she was the one who bought the car which she gave to him. “So, that is not robbery,” the wife said.

    Hmm.. congress should speed up filing and passing of a divorce bill to avoid time consuming, expensive and shameful litigation such as this one.

    What do we expect from the prosecutor?  Of course he would deny it.

    Why treat cases with confidentiality when people wanted to be famous by uploading their sex acts for everyone to view?

      Baka naman wrong spelling yang first sentence under Moral Lesson: Follow the ten commandments:

      ===> Thou shall not KABIT thy neighbors husband (?)

      Mahina na kasi ang karamihan ngayon sa spelling…

        res ipsa loquitor, the video speaks for itself. naka-cite naman yung mga references.

  • henri_see

    Balita ko, linguist yang si prosecutor. Sila ni Hayden.

  • Guest

    Wala namang kabuhay-buhay yung sex video. Parang napilitan lang yung lalaki magpa-sex video, kaya niya ginawa. O baka yan din ang dahilan kung bakit deny to death sya ngayon, kasi hindi naman sya nag-enjoy.

  • boybakal

    Aminin mo na na ikaw yon.
    Nahihiya ka lang dahil kulang ka sa init, nakatayo lang habang nag bbj si lady prosecutor, kulang sa emotion at kulang sa haba.

  • siegfeil

    Napakademonyo pala niyang prosecutor na yan. Sobrang kabastos. siempre tulad nang mga demonyong mga abogado deny and deny.  Yan pa ang mga sumisikat tulad ni ex Dr. Kho.

    atorni, let ur client attend the next hearing, then show the video.
    the audience afterwards will be the one to say if Ur client is not the person in the sex video!
