The member of parliament of Ejisu Juaben, Ama Pomaa Boateng Andoh has urged parliament to pass a law that will protect the victims of leaked sex tapes.
The MP asserts that this move will prevent the immoral act of some men filming their female partners during intercourse, and then using these videos to blackmail them.
Ms Boateng was speaking to Class FM, when she also tasked women to insist on having their male partners also filmed in these situations.
She stated, "It’s always the men who tend to have the videos for some reason and when these videos go viral it is interesting to note that you never find the faces of the men, whether it is intentional or not. We don’t have a specific law banning or stopping or prohibiting someone from doing it.
There are laws scattered all over when it comes to digital stuff [but] we are not up to date with the laws with that, so it’s about time that parliament takes it on and find a suitable law to go with it so that you know that when I pick up this camera to do this I can be jailed for A,B,C."
On the question of whether victims should name and shame their male partners in these instances, Ms Boateng stated that since laws are not yet in place to support them, the women should make sure the videos show the faces of both partners.
