Netizens were still talking about Rob Gomez after his private conversation with several women, including Herlene Budol and Bianca Manalo, was uploaded on the internet.
Until today, the individual who uploaded the said photos using Rob’s was still not yet identified, but there were speculations that only the actor’s partner, Shaila Rebortera, was capable of doing such an act.
If it was proven, Shaila might be held liable if she was the one who posted the said conversation on social media.
According to the statement posted by the National Privacy Commission, posting private conversations without any permission from all the persons involved in the exchange of messages might face charges for not following the Data Privacy Act (DPA) of 2012.
People who were found guilty of not following DPA might face three years behind bars and pay fines worth P500,000 to P1,000,000.
If the information were too sensitive, the penalty would be higher.
Anyone can file a complaint before the National Privacy Commission and bring the case to court.
However, Shaila might be holding a better card against Rob, as there were reports that she was treated badly by the actor.
If it was proven, Rob may face VAWC charges.
It can be recalled that Shaila visited a law firm amid the spread of Rob’s conversation.
