A government official in the Philippines is to be removed from his post after being caught having sex with his secretary during a Zoom call.
Captain Jesus Estil, of the Fatima Dos village council in the province of Cavite, appeared not to know his camera was on at the time of the incident, witnessed by numerous members of the council’s staff.
Footage shows Captain Estil and a woman stood a distance back from the camera in one window of a conference call.

The call was reportedly part of a regular council meeting that took place on August 26.
The woman appears to begin to drop her trousers before Captain Estil approaches the camera and seemingly attempts to turn it off.
He is then seen walking away from the computer and back towards the woman.
As others continue the conference call, the pair can be seen having sex on the far side of the room.
After a number of minutes, Captain Estil is seen walking back across the room while pulling up his trousers to rejoin the call.
The woman in the clip reportedly works for him as a secretary and also does the accounting of the local government’s office.
The scene was recorded by a staff member who was on the call.
After the video was made public, some residents of the village filed a petition to oust the captain for misconduct.
The Department of Interior and Local Government said that Captain Estil will be relieved of his post as quickly as possible.
DILG Barangay affairs summons and complaints chief Richard Geronimo said: “This is not simple misconduct, but grave misconduct.
“We will do everything to punish him.
“Naturally, the staff member in question has asked for forgiveness but it is not that easy.”
Neither Captain Estil nor the woman have reported to their offices since the video emerged.
The incident comes after another couple was caught having sex during a virtual council meeting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil earlier this month.
The meeting was of a committee focused on the rights of children and adolescents, and had been called to discuss how to guarantee food for students in the municipal system during the coronavirus pandemic.
Footage shows a male staff member sitting naked on a bed with a woman beside him before the pair begin to have sex.
The chair of the meeting continued the discussion despite the scenes that were being relayed to attendees.
