Dr. Hayden Kho sex videos & The Cyber Law

May 20, 2009 § 5 Comments

Senator Bong Revilla just accused Dr. Hayden Kho a “sex maniac”. And why is that? There are other videos which this “doctor” allegedly took having sex with other women, and these videos were allegedly taken in stealth. If this is true, then Kho might have violated the anti-wiretapping law.

Aside from violating the law against violence against women and Child, Dr. Kho could be charged with a violation of the Code of Ethical Standards of physicians. That alone could revoke his license as a doctor.

Aside from Katrina Halili, Ruffa Mae Quinto and a Brazilian model were also allegedly “victimized” by Kho. These videos are purportedly spreading like a virus in the Internet. These already permeated in the hawkers of Quiapo.

However, I see something sinister in the way this issue is unfolding before us. It seems that the conversation is fast shifting from the “despicable and criminal act” of Kho to the rising and pervasive influence of New Media. It seems that this campaign is a PR-generated one aimed at support for a Cyber Law pending before the House. Partylist Congressman Irwin Tieng just filed a bill against some acts in cyberspace, which, until now, have not been classified nor revealed in public.

Wittingly or unwittingly, this sex video scandal is being used by certain quarters to justify the passage of such a bill. This Cyber Law aims to curtail the very rights enjoyed right now by Filipino bloggers, yet, most, if not all bloggers and Filipino net users are clueless as to what rights are to be “sacrificed” for the sake of a self-moralizing legislator.
