Cebu student in sex video scandal allowed to graduate

A female student of the University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) involved in a sex video scandal is allowed to graduate next month, academic officials assured during a press conference.

In a report from's The Freeman, USJ-R president Rev. Fr. Enrico Peter Silab said the school has been helping the student, a dean's lister, even before the sex video proliferated and the issue reached the media.

The sex video was taken two years ago but only went viral early this month.

The unnamed student said the mobile phone used to take the video was misplaced, and that the finder may have accessed the video and uploaded it online.

The university has undertaken measures to help the girl finish her course "with the minimum amount of exposure so as to protect her privacy."

It also said that after the video went viral, the investigation was conducted to prioritize the student's physical and psychological well-being.

The student is still taking up 18 units of subjects this semester and will possibly graduate with honors for her "very good academic performance."
