Man charged for uploading sex photos of ex-girlfriend on Facebook
MANILA, Philippines—A Manila City Hall worker was charged with violating the anti-voyeurism law at the Manila Regional Trial Court for uploading photos of him and his ex-girlfriend in sexual acts at a social networking site.
Senior Deputy City Prosecutor Eufrosino Sulla recommended last Saturday the filing of charges against Fritz Floirendo, aka “Tong,” 27, a resident of Sampaloc, Manila, and volunteer staff at the office of a Manila councilor.
Floirendo was arrested 4:30 a.m. last Thursday when patrolling Sampaloc police saw him and his ex-girlfriend having a fight over the uploading of the lewd photos. Sulla set the bail at P14,000.
In a statement to the police, the girl, 20, an online casino dealer, said she received a call from Floirendo at 2:50 a.m. telling her to check his Facebook account for the explosive posts against her.
“When I saw the photos, my knees trembled and I felt exploited by the person I had loved,” the woman told the police.
She called him and said through tears, “How could you do this to me? We loved each other and I did nothing wrong to you.”
Floirendo allegedly responded with vulgar remarks and asked her to see him if she wanted to have the photos deleted. He threatened to further embarrass her if she didn’t show up, she said.
Accompanied by a friend who kept watch at a distance, she met with Floirendo whom she found on Piy Margal Street leaning against his car and wearing only a pair of shorts. When Floirendo asked to have sex with her inside the car, she went hysterical and pounded his chest.
Police patrolling the area saw Floirendo shove the girl and was about to slap her but her friend had intervened. Floirendo was immediately arrested when the girl said she would file a complaint.
