This is what Marjorie said on why the denial:

“I didn’t know what you were talking about. I didn’t even know that there was anything circulating anywhere about me.

“I had just woken up, and I was really caught unaware.

“You were talking about photos of me. It was such a nightmare. I didn’t know how to take it in.

“You know me well. If I cannot tell the truth, I won’t lie. If I won’t answer, it must be because I can’t give an honest answer. In other words, if I cannot tell the truth, I would rather not talk.

“I didn’t want to give you a statement at first because I really didn’t know what this was about. I asked you to describe the photos to me, and [when you did] I really did not recognize myself as being the person.

“That’s why I said it wasn’t me.”

On the time that she realized that it was her all along:

““When I finally got to my lawyer’s office, oh my god, ang dami na palang mga lumabas! My photos! Thursday pa pala! We talked Monday na!

“Nobody even told me, that is my disappointment. Kayo lang ang nagsabi sa akin.

“Now my lawyers have spoken, and they’re serious about taking to court anyone who will continue to do this.

“And now I’ve admitted it, then it must be because I don’t want to push myself in a position where I have to lie.”

Wow it is indeed Marjorie Barretto’s photos that are circulating, as confirmed by her lawyer!

The legal counsel of Marjorie Barretto, the Kapunan Garcia & Castillo Law Offices issued a statement today May 7 in behalf of their client on the scandalous photo that is now circulating on the net and published in tabloid.

Below is the full statement:

“Over the weekend, two (2) private photos of our client, Ms. Marjorie Barretto, were uploaded and circulated in the internet. Eventually, these photos were passed on and reposted by bloggers and internet users.

“Our client did not authorize the posting of her nude photos and they were never intended for public consumption.

“Please note that the publication through the internet and other media formats of these photos is a clear violation of our client’s right to privacy, which is safeguarded by no less than the Philippine Constitution.

“Likewise, the dissemination of the said photos is a blatant defiance of  Republic Act No. 9995 also known as the ‘Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009.’

“The public should be reminded and warned that Republic Act No. 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 the dissemination of these private photos was without our client’s consent.

“The matter of the dissemination and uploading of the aforementioned photos is already the subject of an ongoing 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.

“The penalty for violating RA 9995 is imprisonment of not less than three (3) years but not more than seven (7) years or a fine of not less than Php100,000.00 but not more than Php500,000.00 or both.

“If a juridical person is the violator (i.e. broadcasting company), its license or franchise shall be automatically be deemed revoked and the officers of the company shall be deemed liable as well.

“RA 9995 specifically identifies the ones who will be made liable — editor and the reporter in case of print media and the station manager, editor and broadcaster in case of broadcast media.”

Well, at first Marjorie denied that she is the one in the said photos. Now her lawyer is going after the people for distributing the private photos.

What is your say on these? Who posted it in the first place? What could the motives be?

“No, that’s not me. I would never do something like that. That’s not my nature.”

Her lawyer Atty. Lorna Kapunan, legal counsel , is quick, but not qiuck enough to send the following message after the photos surfaced:

“Gud am.we are representing Marjorie Barretto-we have sent demand letters to bloggers,twitters,facebook,instagram etc. that uploading/downloading/displaying etc of the photos of Marjorie is a blatant violation of RA9995 Anti Photo and Video Voyeurism Act 2009 and her consttutional right to privacy.

“We have issued a warning that whoever passes on the pictures, posts and reports in the internet or in print or in broadcast media is also LIABLE (not just the one who first uploaded it) & we will take all legal actions necessary to make them accountable.”
