For posting Tallado scandal photos | Cam Norte gov files criminal complaints vs netizens

DAET, Camarines Norte—Governor Edgar Tallado has slapped five netizens with charges for violation of RA 9995 or Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009 and Violation of Section 4 of Chapter 2 of RA 10175 or Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012.

This is a spinoff of the Tallado sex scandal, which made national headlines after photos allegedly of the governor and his mistress went viral on social media.

Criminal case filed by Gov. Egay Tallado against netizens

Named respondents in the said cases are the following: Mia Concordia, Mark Vincent Jerez, Rommel Ibasco Fenix, Danilo Deo Trinidad I, and Gener Villacrusis Quibral.

Concorida, Gernixa and Quibral are all connected to DZAU, a radio station located in Itomang, Talisay town.

Tallado's allegations


Tallado, in his affidavit complaint, accuses Concordia of posting on Oct. 29 on her Facebook account photos of Tallado performing lascivious/sexual intercourse and which post she shared with 44 persons.

 Concordia, again reposted the photo on Oct. 30. She added 6 new photos, which “depicted the same subject” later that day and shared it with 102 persons.

The same photos were re-uploaded on the first week of November.


The Governor accuses Jerez of posting on his Facebook account:  “Anong connection nung projects sa concubinage???Irrelevant naman kasi un…paghuhugas naman un…panghugas o panglinis ba yung infrastructures sa ginawang defamatory acts ng ama ng Camarines Sur.

Tallado said that this post on Jerez’ wall illustrates that he “conforms to the intention of Concordia in uploading/sharing the pictures depicted therein and identified the pictures of a male person to be that of Tallado.”

Likewise this province’s chief executive found the following comment posted by Jerez on Oct. 30, 2014 objectionable and contrary to law: “CamNortenos! What is your REACTION if you see this photo, is this appropriate considering that all the issues the beset our province today.”


For Fenix, the governor said that the mediaman uploaded and shared in his Facebook account on Oct. 29, 2014 “pictures of a man having a sexual act with a woman and in said upload Fenix impressed and stated upon the recipient of his uploads that Tallado is the one engaging in a sexual congress with a woman.”


Tallado wants to hold Trinidad criminally liable for uploading on Oct. 27, 2014 and later sharing on his Facebook account a picture of “a man whom he identified as Tallado with a woman closely beside each other and labelled it as : ‘Mabuhay: No. 1 Trending sa Yahoo Philippines na…Mabuhay!!!”
On the same day, he also posted: “ Ganon?? Mas matapang si Babes kesa sa legal wife? At pag nagdi date ang mag sing-irog may kasama pang mga provincial officials???Dapat mag sorry din kayo!! Kaya pala mali mali ang script e…partners in crime mga ito!!! Nakakahiya kayo”.


Tallado also filed a case against Quibral whom he alleged violated the law when: He posted on Oct. 24, 2014 on Facebook “ the picture of Tallado and  a nude woman who is in the act of engaging in a sexual intercourse and in the upload Quibral imputed the sexual act to Tallado.”

Netizens motives questionable, said Tallado

Tallado slammed said netizens and accused them of being “political allies and depended of the Barcelona, Unico, Jalgalado, and Reyes families in Camarines Norte.”

He added: “They tended to show that that I had a private affair with a woman, though outside of my official function as governor if only to embarrass me in public.”

'Embarrassed publicly'

Tallado, in his affidavit-complaint, lamented:

“ I was embarrassed publicly. I suffered sleepless nights, besmirched reputation, and other untold moral sufferings because I became the object of ridicule; I was branded by different names that are insulting and dehumanizing. In fact, my family was estranged because of the unlawful publication of said pictures.”


When asked to comment on the case, she told BICOLSTANDARD.COM: “Sa parte ko paraan yan tumigil ako sa pagiging kritiko ko.  Hindi kami nagsabwatan….Yong mga post ko tinatalakay ko yon kasi iyon ang mainit na isyu.”

“Yung picture hindi ako ang original author o hindi akin galing yon kundi pinag share ko mula sa timeline ng isa din mamahayag,” she explained.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
