MANILA, Philippines—Rock singer Chito Miranda on Tuesday formally asked the National Bureau Investigation (NBI) to track down whoever stole and exposed his sex video with his girlfriend, more than a week after the clip surfaced on the Internet.

Speaking to reporters at the NBI main office in Manila, the Parokya ni Edgar frontman said a hard drive containing his private video with TV star Neri Naig was stolen along with other items from a safe inside his room at his Quezon City residence.

“There was no sign of a break-in and the (only other) people inside our house were the household help and (members of) my family,” Miranda, 37, said in the interview. He said he already had suspects but declined to name them.

NBI head agent Ronald Aguto said the bureau already had leads on who uploaded the video on YouTube and that they would be the focus of the investigation.

“It appeared that Miranda is serious in his complaint against whoever spread the video,” the NBI official said as he warned those engaged in such activities that they could be charged with violation of the antivoyeurism law.

The Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009 imposes a penalty of three to seven years in prison and a fine of P100,000 to P500,000.—Nancy C. Carvajal

    Baka ibig mo sabihin Chito, removable disk o USB ang nasa safe, di ang hard drive dahil walang maniniwala sa yo. Don’t worry, nakita na namin ang “hard drive” mo kay Neri. Di naman yata hard drive, parang soft drive. Dapat diyan sa hard drive mo, ilagay sa ref pagkatapos pigtasin para wala nang susunod na issue…

    Nonsense! The government should ignore the request of Chito. LAOS NA SYA EH kaya gumagawa nang issue.
