Marjorie Barretto to sue blogger behind half-naked photo

Marjorie Barretto is suing the unnamed blogger who is the source of her half-naked online photo for violation of the Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act, which has been made into a law.

This, Marjorie’s lawyer, Lorna Kapunan told Yahoo! Philippines OMG! in a phone interview.

According to the law, the culprit, when found guilty, must pay a fine of not less than P100,000 but not more than P500,000 and imprisoned for not less than three years.

Kapunan added that her client has an idea on who posted the offending photo, but doesn’t want to talk about it for now. The ball is now in the hands of the Natonal Bureau of Investigation (NBI), which is set to find out who the source of the photo is. Kapunan also revealed that her office has written all the blog sites to get to the bottom of the scandal.

Atty. Kapunan added that her client Marjorie thinks the photo scandal has nothing to do with the ongoing Barretto family feud.

“She is the most quiet of the Barrettos. She has not sided with anyone and she has not made any public pronouncement about the fight between the two siblings (Gretchen and Claudine),” Kapunan explained.

Marjorie’s main concern, according to Atty. Kapunan, is her five children, who are exposed to online media at a very early age.

Kapunan also said that this will be a test for the Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act since nobody has filed a case for violation of the said law until Marjorie’s case came up.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
