Hayden sex video mess disrupts Iloilo council session

May 21, 2009 12:51pm

MANILA, Philippines — The row over sex videos of controversial doctor Hayden Kho caused a commotion at the session of the Iloilo City council Wednesday, a radio report said Thursday.

Visayas-based Bombo Radyo reported that council members jostled as each one tried to get a glimpse of the video featuring Kho and actress-model Katrina Irene Halili.

The incident started when City Councilor Eldrid Antiquierra had introduced a resolution condemning Kho's actions.

But the commotion occurred when Councilor Julienne Baronda said she had a copy of the video, and invited her colleagues to watch it on her laptop computer.

The commotion was such that Councilor Eduardo Peñaredondo called for a 15-minute recess just so they can watch the video.

Councilor Erwin Plagata, who acted as presiding officer at the session, branded as "ridiculous" the scene where city councilors jostled to watch the video.

Plagata said this was why he denied the request for a recess.

He added it was not proper for councilors to condemn a video yet take time out to watch it. - GMANews.TV
