OMB Chair Edu Manzano identifies suspect behind leak of Hayden Kho's sex videos


Optical Media Board head Edu Manzano made good on his promise to help beleaguered sexy actress Katrina Halili in finding the person behind the proliferation of the sex video that features her and ex-boyfriend, Hayden Kho.

A certain Erik Johnston Chua was identified by Optical Media Board (OMB) chairman Edu Manzano as the person allegedly behind the leak of the controversial sex video involving doctor turned celebrity Hayden Kho and young actress Katrina Halili.

Based on the initial reports, Chua reportedly asked for P2 million from distributors in exchange for the five sex videos. The hefty amount, Manzano said, was ridiculous, given the usual trade practice of video merchandise in the market.

Edu claimed that blockbuster Hollywood movies would only cost P50,000 at maximum rate. He added that this only showed Chua's lack of knowledge in terms of dealing with distributors.

Authorities suspect that Chua was reportedly the same person who uploaded the illicit videos on the Internet.

This development lifted the spirits of Katrina. In a text message sent to PEP at 10:03 p.m., she said: "Ang korte at ang Diyos na po ang bahala sa kanila."

WHO HAS THE SEX VIDEOS? The latest update posted by GMA-7 News reported that NBI (National Bureau of Investigation) had issued a subpoena to Hayden Kho, Erik Johnston Chua—including famous cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo, who is Kho's ex-girlfriend—for questioning.

NBI assistant regional director Vicente de Guzman III said that Belo was also asked to appear before the investigators at NBI office tomorrow, May 22, to shed light on reports saying that she herself has copies of the video.

"Tatanungin namin kung bakit meron siyang kopya at kung saan ito nakuha," De Guzman pointed out.

Katrina filed a complaint against Kho yesterday, May 20, at the NBI office, where she was accompanied by Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla and her lawyers. The actress likewise asked the PRC (Philippine Regulatory Commission) to revoke Kho's medical license.
