Aguirre on Tuesday, explained that showing the said ‘De Lima sex tape’ could be used to disprove or prove the former Justice Secretary’s alleged connections to former bodyguard and driver Ronnie Dayan whom is also said to be the senator’s lover.

Meanwhile, netizens voiced out their disapproval regarding the leaking of alleged ‘De Lima sex tape.’ Stating that said act does not make any sense, even called irrelevant by some and said violates over the senator’s status as a woman.

Below are some Facebook status and tweets of netizens expressing their protests against planned usage of alleged ‘De Lima sex video scandal.’

Even former presidential candidate, Senator Grace Poe cautions that leaking said sex video scandal will be unlawful and illegal.

“I have reservations about the legality of the playing of alleged sex video, which will violate the very law that Congress passed,” Poe said on Wednesday in a text message as reported by Inquirer.

She cited that said act will violate Section 4 of Republic Act 9995 or the Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009, which says “expressly prohibits and declares unlawful the showing of photo or video coverage or recordings of such sexual act or any similar activity through VCD/DVD, internet, cellular phones and other similar means or device.”

Contrary to Poe’s statement, House Speaker Pantaleon “Bebot” Alvarez stated too on same day that he would allow the House of Representatives Justice Committee to make use of alleged ‘De Lima sex tape.’ Alvarez negate that said video will result to “slut-shaming” of the senator.
