The press caught up with Senator Ingrid Nieto as she made her way out of the session hall. Nieto, just like the senator siblings Alan Peter and Pia Cayetano, was not present at the Senate probe on the Hayden Kho video scandal.
All eyes were glued on TV screens as major networks broadcasted the proceedings. The Senator was at the Lakas-Kampi-CMD merger event, where a lot of big politicians were also in attendance. At the Senate, Senators Jamby Madrigal, Jinggoy Estrada and Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. were left to do the probe.
“If you ask me, the merger is more important than the celebrity scandal. Elections are coming up! However, this won’t stop me from airing my opinion over the issue. Girls, you better be careful. Whether you are head over heels in love with a guy, if you have a video (of yourself) in a compromising situation, you better be scared because it’s caught on film. You can trust the ones who are close to you, but remember that in the digital age, it is so easy to hack into systems. Paris Hilton’s email was hacked. We all are susceptible, so take extra caution. Thank you.”
The senator started walking away from us but we pulled her back to ask about her opinion on the “water incident” where Abner Afuang poured water over Hayden Kho’s head.
“OMG it’s a ‘You’re nothing but a second-rate-trying-hard-copycat’ moment. It reminded me of a scene from the play we did just this Sunday. Enid Hoopes, one of the lawyers got her hair permed, and to prove that water deactivates the perm’s ammonium thioglycolate, her head was doused with water and her hair fell straight. Don’t you think Abner Afuang got the idea from that scene?”
Former policeman and mayor Abner Afuang was detained at the Pasay City police office after the water incident on Thursday. According to Chief Inspector Reynaldo Paculan, Afuang can be freed if he could pay P200-P1000.
