25 June 2009
Eric Johnston Chua, Dr. Mark Herbert "Bistek" Rosario and his girlfriend Princess Velasco appeared today in the preliminary investigation being conducted by the DOJ to submit their counter-affidavits to the complaint against them by actress Katrina Halili in connection with the uploading and distribution of the Hayden Kho sex videos. All of them denied any wrongdoing in connection with the charges against them saying that they were only responsible for retrieving the laptops and hard drives from the condo of Hayden Kho.
It will be recalled that all three respondents sent only their lawyers and did not appear personally in the first hearing of the case on June 19, 2009 wherein Katrina Halili faced off against Dr. Hayden Kho while Dra. Vicki Belo arrived late but came ready with her witnesses.
