MANILA — Justice Secretary Leila de Lima denied Sandra Cam’s allegations that she has a sex tape, saying that the said tape is a fake and that what Cam is doing is a crime.

“You know that’s a threat. Didn’t she know she’s been committing a crime already all this time?” De Lima told Senate reporters.

De Lima also added thatit would be clear violation of the Anti-Voyeurism Law once Cam releases what she called “fake” tapes.

“I’m sure that’s a fake. Remember whether it’s fake or genuine, it’s still a violation of Anti-Voyeurism Law,” De Lima said in an interview before her confirmation hearing.

Cam was earlier reported to have threatened the justice secretary of releasing the alleged sex video if her confirmation will be approved by the Commission on Appointments.

“I can’t. It’s really demeaning . Attacks to me like that  (do) not deserve an ounce of dignified response. I refuse to be dragged in such gutter tactics,” De Lima said when asked why she is not taking actions against Cam.

Meanwhile, Cam who also attended the confirmation hearing, insisted that the sex tapes were real.
