A video of two high school kids having sex in an indoor stairway has gone viral the past few days. Recorded through a hidden camera, the clip is over six minutes long.

According to the website CoolBuster.net,  the video has received 1.6 million views, 32,000 likes, 64,000 shares and 24,000 comments as of February 2.

A quick look at the video reveal that the couple having sex are just in their early teens, prompting netizens to label the video as “Bagito scandal.”

That is of course in reference to “Bagito,” a drama series starring young actor Nash Aguas that is aired over ABS-CBN every night.

If identified, the one who recorded the couple’s sex act may be charged for violating Republic Act 9995, or the Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009. The law makes it illegal to take “a photo or video coverage of a person or group of persons performing sexual act or any similar activity.”

Those convicted of violating this law may face imprisonment for three to seven years. He/she will also have to pay a fine ranging from P100,000.00 to P500,000.00.

However, in this particular case, the original recorder of the video may be able to escape prosecution thanks to RA 9344, or the Amended Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act of 2006 (this was amended in 2013).

The law states that those below 18 years of age are exempted from criminal liability and will instead be subjected to an intervention program to be facilitated by the Department of Social Welfare and Development and its partner agencies..
