Marjorie Barretto to sue blogger behind half-naked photo

“Marjorie Barretto to sue blogger behind half-naked photo” is a headline on Yahoo! Philippines OMG! on Wednesday. The “unnamed blogger” will be charged for violation of the Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Law, it was reported.

Said law states that the culprit, if found guilty, must pay a fine of not less than P100,000 but not more than P500,000 and serve jail time of not less than 3 years, the report said.

Marjorie’s lawyer, Lorna Kapunan, who has been sending bloggers demand letters left and right, told Yahoo! Philippines OMG! that her client “has an idea” on who posted the sleazy photos, “but doesn’t want to talk about it for now.”

“The ball is now in the hands of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) find out who the source of the photo is,” the report said.

Now this raises more questions than answers.
  • How did the “unnamed blogger” obtain Marjorie’s half-naked photos in the first place? Was her camera or phone stolen or hacked?
  • Why don’t Marjorie and her lawyer identify the blogger? Keeping it general or broad is simply unfair to most if not all bloggers.
  • If Marjorie already “has an idea” of who the culprit is, why prolong the issue? Is there a hidden agenda behind this hullabaloo? Was the ‘noise’ created have something to do with her daughter’s career or the Barretto family feud?
Just asking.
