Rodel Jayme, the web administrator arrested by the Department of Justice for allegedly uploading the “Bikoy” videos, has gone viral again for his photos that surfaced on social media.
KAMI learned that the photos show Jayme with several famous personalities.
Here are the politicians and celebrities he was photographed with:
1. Leni Robredo
Vice President Robredo is a political rival of President Rodrigo Duterte. Her camp has denied any involvement with Jayme.
2. Jim Paredes
Jim Paredes is a known critic of the President and a supporter of the Aquino administration. He recently made headlines with his video scandals.
3. Korina Sanchez
The newscaster is the wife of Senatorial candidate Mar Roxas, who ran against Duterte in the 2016 presidential election.
4. Noynoy Aquino
Noynoy Aquino is the former president of the Philippines and an ally of Vice President Robredo.
5. Dingdong Dantes
The Kapuso actor is a known supporter of the Aquino administration.
6. Boy Abunda
Boy used to be close friends with Noynoy’s sister, Kris Aquino.
Some netizens claimed that the viral photos prove the involvement of the politicians pictured with Jayme with the creation and spread of the Bikoy videos, which made several grave accusations against Duterte and his family.
However, there were also netizens who said that anyone could have pictures taken with famous personalities and that this does not prove anything against the opposition.
Attorney Barry Gutierrez, spokesperson of Robredo, completely denied that the Vice President was involved in the controversial videos.
“Malinaw na paninira na naman ito. Ayon sa kuwentong ipinipilit ibenta kasabay ng photo, si VP Leni daw ang nasa likod ng pagkilos nitong si Jayme.
“Para sa kalinawan ng lahat: walang ‘Rodel Jayme’ na nagtatrabaho para sa OVP o kay VP Leni.
“Wala itong napapatunayan kundi madaling maghanap ng photo sa Facebook, at gumawa ng anumang kuwento tungkol dito, gaya ng ilang ulit nang ginawa sa mga miyembro ng oposisyon, kasama na si VP Leni.
“Nakakalungkot na ang isang sumuporta kay VP Leni, na hinuli at ngayo’y pinagbabantaang kakasuhan, ay gagamitin pa sa ganitong klaseng paninira,” Gutierrez said, as reported by News 5.
