Ethics panel finds starlet’s case valid

The House ethics committee yesterday ruled that the sexual harassment and oral defamation case filed by starlet Anna Leah Javier of Viva Hot Babes and her manager against Zambales Rep. Antonio Diaz is sufficient in form and substance.

Bohol Rep. Roberto Cajes, panel chairman, announced that in a unanimous voting, his panel ruled as valid the complaint of Javier and her manager, Ma. Remedios “Baby” Bueno Coady, paving the way for a full-blast probe.

“Hearing no objection, the chairman declares the complaint sufficient in form and substance,” Cajes said.

Javier and Coady had asked the panel to sanction Diaz after he allegedly harassed and hurled invectives at the starlet when she refused to give him sex last January in his resort in Zambales.

The panel’s decision was based on the motion of Akbayan Rep. Loretta Ann Rosales, which was seconded by Lanao del Sur Rep. Benasing Macarambon.

Javier and Coady were gladdened by the decision, saying it indicated that lawmakers are independent-minded and do not protect each other when a complaint is raised against them in Congress.

“We just have to wait. It’s a victory on our part and there’s no more retreat in our fight although this will be a long fight,” Javier said in Filipino.

Coady filed a separate complaint against Diaz, claiming that he molested her when she was a 16-year old model.
