Busted: Photos of alleged de Lima scandal fake!advertisement
Senator Leila de Lima is the current target of President Rodrigo Duterte’s campaign to name and shame government officials who are allegedly involved in the illegal drug trade. On top of that, he also called de Lima an “immoral woman” for having an affair with her married driver.
With the revelation came the revival of talks about de Lima’s alleged s3x video on social media and photos of what some netizens claimed to be de Lima and her driver circulated online.
However, Facebook page “P.Rody Dudirty” posted a photo proving that it was not de Lima in the stills of what was alleged to be her s3x video.
The photo came with a caption that said, “Screengrab of the porn video was taken from the original post by @miyakoizabel’s FB page. Note: Duterte fanatics were successful in requesting Facebook to remove her post. Nabuking nga naman ang isa sa mga kasinungalingan ng mga kups.”
We visited Miyako Izabel’s Facebook page and found a post on August 18 about the scandal.
She posted, “Sa Mga Uto-utong Pilipino.”
“Itong kinakalat ninyong larawan sa social media at ginagamit para sirain ang puri ni Senadora Leila de Lima ay mula sa isang porn site. Hindi po siya yan. Inuuto lang kayo at ginagago. Ginagawang mga tanga at bobo,” she said.
Izabel, in a separate post, also issued a challenge to those who uploaded the photos online.
“Ipakita niyo ang video na may boses. Hindi kasi puwedeng i-photoshop ang video at sound. Gawin niyo yan. Huwag iyong dark at blurry na larawan,” she said.
She even mocked the photo editing skills of the culprits. “Isa pa, kung mag-morph kayo ng image, husayan niyo naman? Huwag ‘yong pang C lang sa image editing class.”
On August 19, she posted how some of her posts proving that de Lima’s scandal was fake was deleted from Facebook.
Izabel wrote, “Ang Galing-galing Nila.”
“Napa-delete nila sa Facebook ang lahat ng mga makatotohanang post ko tungkol sa pambabalahura nila kay Senadora Leila de Lima gamit ang mga imahe ng iba na hinango mula sa mga porn website at ang kanilang pang-uuto sa mga Pilipino. Hindi po ako nasasaktan. Nagtataka lang ako. Pangit at masakit ba ang katotohanan? Bakit pilit itong binubura o tinatakpan?” she added.
Another Facebook post defending de Lima from the allegations of being featured in a s3x video also surfaced, showing the clearer photo of the real girl in the original video, with the caption, “Can’t believe the President went this low.”
De Lima not convinced taped scandal exists
De Lima expressed contempt over how her alleged s3x video surfaces whenever she is involved in high-profile investigations.
GMA News Online quoted her saying, “Masakit din yung mga tungkol sa mga personal na buhay na kinokontsa ka bilang babae, at tignan n’yo rine-revive na naman ang so-called alleged s3x video na yan.”
The presence of the de Lima scandal was first raised by whistleblower Sandra Cam in 2014 before the Commission on Appointments.
De Lima then said that the scandal was a fake.
“I noticed, every time I’m in the middle of something, a high-profile investigation, high-profile case, na ako ang nasa sentro, nilalabas nila ang so-called alleged s3x video na yan. Magpapa-text blast sila,” she said.
The senator added that she doubts the video exists.
“Nakita n’yo na ho ba yung s3x video na yan? Meron bang s3x video? Sabi ng aking staff ang nakita nila is parang still, still photo of what is being made to appear as a video. Sabi ng staff ko if I may share, in-examine daw nila nang husto yung picture na yan, halata naman daw na hindi ako yung babae dun,” de Lima said.
On questions about Cam, de Lima said, “Ang attitude ko sa kanya ay hindi ko siya pinapansin.”
After Duterte’s accusation of de Lima being “immoral,” the senator said that the President abused and misused his executive power of immunity. Netizens also came to her defense, pointing out Duterte’s own “immoral” womanizing issues.
