Marjorie Barretto.

Atty. Lorna Kapunan, legal counsel for Marjorie Barretto, informed News5 through a text message on Tuesday morning that circulating the photos involving her client “is a blatant violation of Republic Act 9995 or the Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009″.

The text message reads:

“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.”

On Monday, InterAksyon ran a story on the photo scandal concerning the actress-turned-politician and posted the photos in question, albeit with the sensitive parts carefully cropped out. The photos were taken down on Tuesday afternoon.
