A closed-circuit television Video of the Panamanian diplomat accused of raping a 19-year-old Filipina, and the alleged Filipina Rape Victim’s CCTV video is making the rounds on the internet.
The CCTV was allegedly taken inside the Panamanian Makati apartment. The Panamanian Diplomat has denied the allegations in a press statement. Erick Shcks, a technical officer of the Panama Maritime Authority, said he engaged in sexual intercourse with the complainant “Pamela” (not her real name) last April 23 but stressed that the act was consensual. Shcks dispelled allegations that he drugged the Pinay teen and forced her to have sex with him.
Shcks left the country last May 11, 2012 and was declared persona non grata by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA). Shcks’s departure drew the ire of Senators Loren Legarda and Vicente Sotto III, who believed that the Panamanian rape suspect should not have been allowed to go scot-free. The DOJ said that Schks may be tried for the alleged rape once the Panamanian government waives his diplomatic immunity.
