The National Bureau of Investigation in the Philippines has summoned the country’s most popular cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Vicky Belo, to shed light on the leak of a series of sex scandal tapes involving Dr. Hayden Kho and Katrina Halili and Dr. Maricar Reyes. Also summoned was one Eric Johnston Chua [paragraph source – Inquirer article: Doctor in sex tape back in RP – NBI chief ]
Aside from owning the Belo Medical Group, where Kho is an associate, Belo is also a former lover of Kho. Their breakup in December 2008 was due to his affairs, notably Katrina Halili. [see Youtube video: Hayden Kho and Katrina Halili love affair]

Why is Belo being summoned?
Ricardo de Guzman, NBI-Anti-Fraud chief, said they have received reports that Belo has the copies of the controversial sex videos. “We want to know why she has copies of the video and how she obtained them,” he said. [Manila Times]
Possible reasons why Belo has copies
- She was a former lover, thus she would be interested
- Everybody else has a copy, why wouldn’t she have?

The NBI is investigating the Kho scandal case amid the widespread distribution of the scandal videos via the Internet, notably in blogs and discussion groups hosted by Google and Yahoo, and in file hosting sites such as Rapidshare, Megaupload and Mediafire. The videos also found their way in YouTube, where they can be freely viewed and downloaded.
The source of the Dr. Hayden Kho video has yet to be identified but the country’s electronic media censors chief, former comedian Edu Manzano, named Chua as a possible suspect.
Philippine authorities led by former actor Sen. Bong Revilla are hoping to shut down all websites showing the video, including Youtube.
