MANILA, Philippines?Television actress Katrina Halili is considering filing charges against medical doctor-model Hayden Kho for filming their intimate moments without her knowledge, and for making the videos public without her consent, the women's rights group Gabriela told INQUIRER.net Wednesday.
"She sought our help and may ihahain na legal action kasama yung lawyer niya, and to also call the attention of the Lower House and Senate [to enact] a law on sex videos in general," Emmi De Jesus of Gabriela said.
Halili "is willing to testify," De Jesus added.
The Gabriela official said she recently met with Halili, who was "very angry" and who felt she had been "raped many times over" when their ?very intimate? video, supposedly made without her knowledge two years ago, was leaked out to the public.
The actress earlier admitted and apologized for two other videos where she is seen dancing with Kho in their underwear, said De Jesus.
But Halili told her she was not aware that Kho was taping their ?very intimate? moments.
De Jesus said Halili must not be faulted for the videos because "intimacy is part of relationships" but most women bear the brunt of cases where sex is involved.
She said this was not the first time a "sex video victim" approached their group for help but Halili has been the only one willing to testify.
"Most of them back out for lack of funds to file a case and others have no courage to tell their story in public," De Jesus said.
