BACOLOD City – Bacolod Lone District Congressman, Dr. Anthony Golez during the weekend denied the existence of an alleged sex video of him and two other women.

He said it is just another black propaganda being peddled by his political detractors and declined to elaborate further.

Golez called a press conference Saturday primarily to announce what he claimed as good news and another pride for  Bacolodnons.

Golez said he was chosen as one of the major presentors in the upcoming FAMAS awards night slated next week. He will present the Best Actress award.

“This is another pride for Bacolodnons,” Golez said.

On the question that he was not around during the Nationalist People’s Coalition mass oath taking held at the L’Fisher Hotel, Golez said he was not invited and he does not have the attitude to gatecrash.

He said though he will remain as NPC member and may run as NPC independent.

He claimed that since he joined the said party for the 2010 elections and won as congressman together with Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia, who got re-elected, there were already efforts to kick him out of the party.

This is because, according to him, Leonardia is planning to run for congressman.

“But I will continue to remain as NPC member by mind and by my heart,” Golez stressed.

On the issue of their conjugal house being padlocked by his estranged wife Princess Soraya, Golez said that much as he wanted to defend himself he was advised by his lawyer that the matter is better left to the courts.

Golez earlier confirmed he has separated from his wife. He was reportedly seen in the constant company of Bacolod beauty queen Jewel May Lobaton who recently separated from her husband, Senator Koko Pimentel.

NO POLITICIAN will ever miss the opportunity for photo ops especially if the snap will go into print, front page at that. So when the picture of the politicians who went to Macau for what is billed a “weekend of bonding” hit the front page, I immediately went through the line-up. But what struck me was not who were there but who were not.   Read more...
