Revilla seeks NBI help on Ramgen-Janelle video

MANILA, Jan. 2 — Senator Ramon Bong Revilla Jr. on Monday sought the help of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in identifying and prosecuting the perpetrators behind the online uploading of an intimate video between his deceased brother, Ramgen Revilla, and his girlfriend Janelle Manahan.

”What they did against my brother is too much. The brother was brutally killed and now they want to destroy his name as well as Janelle,” Revilla said.

The video was circulated in the internet a week ago.

Revilla asked the NBI to conduct an investigation and arrest the culprits and prosecute them under the Anti-Voyeurism Law of 2009 (RA 9995), which punishes the unauthorized and unconsented publication and uploading of videos.

"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 explained.

Offenders will be penalized with 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.

Revilla is a co-author of the said law. (PNA)
