QC prosecutor denies being in sex video

By |

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.
