Panamanian national in Filipina rape case claims ‘consensual sex’

By

Panamanian Erick Bairnals Shcks. GRIG C. MONTEGRANDE

MANILA, Philippines – Panamanian national Erick Bairnals Shcks, who has been accused raping a Filipina, finally broke his silence Friday, claiming that he and his supposed victim engaged in “consensual sex”.

At the same time, Shcks said that the Filipina, who goes by the alias “Pamela”, had lied to him.

Shcks issued the statement a week after he left the Philippines “in a shameful way”.

Shcks admitted that he and “Pamela” engaged in sex, but stressed that it was “consensual” and that it was “never” in his nature to force people to do something for him that they didn’t want to do.

“[Pamela] lied to me about her age, she lied to be about her not having a boyfriend, she lied to me about not having a cell phone with her that night, she lied about being rendered unconscious due to some drugs I gave her, and most importantly, she lied about me raping her,” Shcks said.

Narrating his side of the story, Shcks said that Pamela invited him to dinner on April 23 through a text message sent to his friends’ cell phone and eventually met her at 5:45 p.m. They then proceeded to a restaurant of Pamela’s choice.

Shcks said that they talked about their families and his life while in Manila, among other topics “which confirmed my impression of her as a really interesting girl,” he said, adding that it was at that time when he learned that Pamela didn’t have her cellphone.

Because of that, Shcks said that Pamela even used his cell phone a lot of times that night to allegedly inform her grandmother of her whereabouts.

“ . . . It was also over dinner when she told me that she was 21 years old and does not have a boyfriend at the moment,” he said.

After dinner, Shcks said that “Pamela” told him that she wanted to dance and have some drinks and this was why they took a cab to a bar on Makati Avenue called Time.

“In the bar, we had couple of drinks and a really good time. At that time, she was already kissing me and hugging me in front of the members of the staff and one of them took a picture of us,” he said.

Thinking that the place was kind of empty and boring, Shcks said that he suggested that they went to his apartment instead – an invitation that Pamela “gladly accepted” although she informed him that she could not stay late.

Shcks said they went to his apartment in Le Triomphe Building, Dela Costa Street ,Salcedo Village.

“As opposed to her claims, I never forced or coerced her to come with me to my place or spend the night with me to have sex. You will see in the security camera videos when we entered my building holding each other’s hands and on the elevator going to my floor that there were no signs of me forcing her as she claimed during her interviews,” he said.

“What I only did was to embrace her on my side affectionately and kiss her on the lips which was cut short when we reached the floor of my unit,” Shcks said in contrast to Pamela’s official statement at the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group last April 24 when she claimed that he “embraced her facing each other while she tried to set herself free but was unable to do so.”

Shcks said that two of his friends were in his unit when they arrived, and one of them slept on the couch that was why they needed to go to his bedroom.

“She did not refuse, nor said ‘no’”, he said, adding that she willingly made her way to his bedroom.

“In the room, we continued talking and listening music from my computer as the night went on, we began to engage in sexual intercourse which she shared with me willingly and with passion,” he said.

Shcks said that after having sex and some conversation over a medical condition Pamela had,  she told him that she needed to leave.

Thinking that it might be dangerous for Pamela to take a cab alone that night, Shcks said that he asked her to spend the night instead and to just go home in the morning.

Saying that her grandmother was looking for her, Shcks said that he told Pamela to call her and let her know that she was OK.

“She took my phone again to make a call, immediately said goodbye to me and made her way out of my room,” he said.

“You can also view from the security camera videos some shots of her entering the elevator normally and I was surprised to see in the surveillance video on her way to concierge that she has a cellphone in her hands when she told me earlier that she did not have her cell phone with her.”

He also said that the security camera showed that there were no signs of her being damaged physically as a rape victim should be. “She was calm. She was not drugged or did not seem to have come from an unconscious state as she claimed to have been,” Shcks added.

Shcks said that the next day, Pamela sent him another text message while he was at work asking to meet with him. He said that they met that afternoon in a fastfood chain near his house and when he got there and saw her, “she gave me a kiss on the lips  [and] the next thing I know, several agents in casual clothes grabbed me.”

Shcks said that he even thought that he was being kidnapped, and said that he remembered a man yelling “stop raping Filipinas.”

Shcks was detained in CIDG on April 24, but was released on April 30 declaring the validity of his immunity from arrest and detention under articles 29, 31, and 37 of the Vienna convention on diplomatic relations.

He was declared Persona Non-Grata on May 11 upon submission of the resolution from the Panama Government not to waive his immunity and to leave the Philippines “within 24 hours”.

“It is an understatement to say that this whole experience have created a lot of permanent damage on me. More than that, it has jeopardized the image of my country with the Filipino pople.”

“I keep replaying that incident with [Pamela] time and again in my head and I know in my heart that the only mistake I made was trust her,” he said.

Pamela, in a statement to the Women and Children Protection Division of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) in Camp Crame, said that she was only 19 years old.

Recalling her own version of the incident, Pamela also said that when she entered Shcks’ room, she saw some papers on his bed that had green tobacco.  Pamela said that she inquired what it was, to which Shcks allegedly answered that it was marijuana.

    First, let’s face the reality. The “rape” was a scheme. Forgive me for saying this but the way the events were told and the security camera showed, there was no rape. From using the foreigner’s cellphone to call her alleged grandmother to the drinking then kissing in the elevator and after the “consensual” sex, the talking by the complainant with the information staff and calm waiting for the taxi. Oh my! Then the lawyer of the complainant stressed that there was rape because the girl refused when inside the bedroom. She had a cellphone so why didn’t she call the authorities right away? Baloney! 

    Second, let’s consider and protect the dignity and title of the nation. Pilipinos here abroad are becoming ashamed of claiming their real nationality because of the notoriety of the Philippines for these schemes and prostitution. Authorities connive with criminal syndicate to stage entrapment to extort money from a foreigner. Some resort to kidnapping in conspiration with rebels or syndicates. Japanese, Koreans, Americans, Malaysians (?), Australians and many other nationalities were already victims of these “set-ups.” If you’re abroad, try to request a western guy to ask a Pilipina in the US or Europe and she will have second thought of telling you that she’s a Pilipina. Sad but true. 

    Third, If I were the Senators who wants to pursue their grandstanding, I would have stopped the hearing and shut my mouth. That is the best they can do for the nation – by not tolerating criminal intent against foreigners. True there are abusive aliens then that would be the right time to throw the proverbial kitchen sink at these rude and maltreating foreigners like that Middle Eastern official. Think sanely and logically. Stop adding salt to the injury. 

    OFWs and other Pilipinos living abroad are already battered by the notoriety of the Philippines for organized crimes and syndicates with some blessings from the officials who are supposed to protect the people and visitors alike. Let us be honest and stop giving “protection” to the schemers in aid of grandstanding. Ms. Legarda, have some courage to be truthful in this “rape” case. Mr. Sotto, I suggest you calmly stop your senseless arguments to pretend or simulate that you know something. Put them in the right place, time and objective.

    • bob41252

      bring the panamanian rapist back and have him tried in court and bring all the videos and whatever evidence he has, your amateurish conclusions can then be tested, under questioning and grilling a lot of revelations can come out. the videos were outside the room where it happened where of course everything seemed normal, so lets find out what really happened inside where there was no video.
      if you are filipino shame on you for saying all this things against your own kind, you smack of colonial mentality, you smell worse than a rotten fish. if you are a foreigner, bad bad boy, how many filipinas have you taken advantage of. i am an OFW and i take pride in being a filipino, from the middle east to the USA, filipinos proved themselves to be exceptionally worthy of the task at hand. you dont know what you’re talking about moron.
      remember videos dont tell the whole story, tell that to reymart and claudine.

        bob41252 …… you are just a shame for our country and i wish you will end up in the panamanian guys shoes wherever you work as a OFW …… with you’r posts here you proved already you’r mental capacity ……. probably you’r one of the reasons why many foreigners think in a bad way about us ……. as a OFW you should know better ……. Uneducated monkey!!!!

        Sorry …… but people like you belong in trash

        Disgusting

      • bob41252

        hmmmm aisha. what is more disgusting, you being raped or me defending you from these PANAMANIAN RAPISTS. quick aisha choose. have you tried being raped? not yet? try it and then lets see where you stand after that very nice experience. then YOU will look like trash. and i the monkey moving from tree to tree having fun, educated by you. proud to be OFW not in panama.
        by the way aisha, if you live in this planet, it may interest you to know OFWs are respected wherever they go. and please shed your colonial mentality.

         Bob41252 Dear sir do you have evidence of a rape taking places? No not just he said she said but evidence. I would give them both a lie detector test and see who is lying. To take any ones side without the test is a sign of stupidity.  Hate is a sickness and you sure seem to hate the man in this case.

      • bob41252

        sir hate is not good for my heart and total well being, far from it, i want justice for this girl, and if there is a fight i will not back down from is defending the weak from foreigners who take advantage of the filipino hospitality and this girl being naive, and sir that is not hate, it is more of disgust. on the other hand i really would be stupid if i did not do anything to help/support this girl. so sir, are you stupid? make the man return, then give everybody the chance to present his evidence. my point is, what is he so afraid of? to be found guilty? soooo stupid. if you can understand this, then you may not be stupid yourself after all.

      • murtson

        Don’t try or appear to be naive just to hide the notorious practices of syndicates with police or any authority connections. Put yourself into the shoes of the foreigners kidnapped, extorted, held-up, or swindled. Think like a sane man.

        I know you know what your countrymen are doing. Only you just want to put a semblance of nationalism just like Legarda and that HR head who thought that having into at loggerheads with a foreigner and land in the front page of the newspaper will make them popular and worth to be a Senator or what not.. Truly you’re funny! 

      • bob41252

        funny, thanks that was a compliment. so lets get it done now, bring back your PANAMANIAN RAPIST countryman so he can be given the chance to clear his name. is it that peaceful in panama, no kidnapping, extortion thievery, etc, look who is insane now, you are dreaming. you people need to clean up your embassy of sex perverts and who nows what other kind of people your hiding in that embassy. which one are you, the cook? no. the ambassador? no. hmmm maybe one of the embassy staff. anyway, if you are one of the guys enjoying free sex with filipinas, i hope you get HIV, then please give it to your wife and girlfriend.  

      • murtson

        You must be a member of the authorities who conspire with crime syndicates harrassing foreigners to squeeze their dollars or yens. 

        Next time, put some nuances in your rackets. This Pamela “rape” has already been worn out of style. So with your hold-up, carnapping and swindling schemes. 

      • bob41252

        murt my son, are we not talking about the PANAMANIAN RAPIST anymore, why do you change the subject so, you hurt my feelings, you are changing the subject, lets continue talking about PANAMANIAN RAPISTS, and their objective to get ‘free sex’ from the helpless Filipina, of course that includes you, its a good subject. While on that subject, let’s clean up also the PANAMANIAN EMBASSY of RAPE DIPLOMATS, that would be a good cause, don’t you agree. don’t you?

    Shortly after taking power in 1949, the Communist Party of China embarked upon a series of campaigns that purportedly eradicated prostitution from mainland China by the early 1960s. Since the loosening of government controls over society in the early 1980s, prostitution in mainland China not only has become more visible, but can now be found throughout both urban and rural areas. In spite of government efforts, prostitution has now developed to the extent that it comprises an industry, one that involves a great number of people and produces a considerable economic output. Prostitution has also become associated with a number of problems, including organized crime, government corruption and sexually transmitted diseases. For example, a Communist Party official who was a top provincial campaigner against corruption was removed from his post after he was caught in a hotel room with a prostitute.[1]
    Prostitution-related activities in mainland China are characterised by diverse types, venues and prices. Prostitutes themselves come from a broad range of social backgrounds. They are almost all female, though in recent years male prostitutes have also emerged. A large number of Russian women work as prostitutes in China.[2] Venues typically include hotels, karaoke venues and beauty salons.
    Officially, prostitution is illegal in mainland China.[3] The government of the People’s Republic of China has vacillated, however, in its legal treatment of prostitutes themselves, treating them sometimes as criminals and sometimes as behaving with misconduct. Since the reappearance of prostitution in the 1980s, government authorities have responded by first using the legal system, that is, the daily operations of institutions like courts and police. Second, they have relied on police-led campaigns, clearly delineated periods of intense public activity, as a form of social discipline. Despite lobbying by international NGOs and overseas commentators, there is not much support for legalisation of the sex sector by the public, social organizations or the government of the PRC.
