Movie starlet files sexual harassment complaint vs solon

A MOVIE starlet has filed a sexual harassment complaint against a lawmaker at the House of Representatives, but which the legislator has denied. Accompanied by manager Baby Bueno, Anna Leah Javier, 25, went to the House committee on ethics to formally charge Zambales Representative Antonio Diaz.

Javier, a member of the sexy all-female group ‘Viva Hot Babes,” said she had nothing personal against Diaz and that she bore him no ill feeling, although she refused to accept an apology from the congressman. “It should have been done a long time ago,” she told reporters. “I'm not scared...He should be punished for what he did to me.”

Javier provided the committee pictures of her and Diaz when she performed in a birthday party for Zambales Governor Vicente Magsaysay in January.

But Diaz told INQ7.net that he had no intention of apologizing or settling the issue with his accuser.

“Why will I settle with them? They should settle with me!” the lawmaker said in a telephone
interview. “It's nothing. They are all liars. They are saying different things when they were interviewed on TV,” he said.

Diaz said he suspected that Javier “probably just wanted money” from him.
Bueno said she hoped that the committee would seriously look into the matter and that fair justice would be given to Javier. “We don't want to destroy anyone. We just want to inform the public of the immorality that he (Diaz) has done,” she said.

Committee chairman Roberto Cajes of Bohol assured Javier of an impartial and speedy trial.
“We will proceed with the case until there's a final resolution,” Cajes said. If Diaz is proven guilty, Cajes said he could be reprimanded, censored, suspended, or dismissed from the House.

During the 8th Congress, the ethics committee suspended former Nueva Ecija Representative Nicanor de Guzman for illegal possession of firearms.
