Therese Ho: Lawsuit is about sending a message

Following the landmark decision by Justice Frank Seepersad to award damages in the amount of $150,000 to the ex-girlfriend of Trinidad and Tobago cricketer, Lendl Simmons, Therese Ho broke her silence on the matter.

In a news conference late yesterday, Ho said the country’s legal minds now need to review appropriate legislation regarding social media and the internet.

Ho told the media that she has forgiven Simmons for the incident. However, she said she endured the publicity of the "Revenge Porn" case because she knows others have been the victim of similar acts. Ho also wanted to send a message that women’s names should not be smeared due to any relationship going sour.
