The Public Prosecutor will prosecute website Geenstijl for publishing a sex tape of Dutch celebrity Patricia Paay last year, the Telegraaf reports.

The video in question was posted on Geenstijl in February last year. It was removed a short time later, at the instruction of Paay's lawyer Johan Langelaar.
A sex tape featuring Dutch celebrity Patricia Paay was posted on Twitter earlier this week. According to her lawyer Johan Langelaar, Paay did not know she was being filmed and will be pressing charges on Friday, he said to RTL Late Night on Thursday.
"She says: I did not know that a film was made of me", Langelaar said to on the show. "I really believe her. Why would she not tell the truth to me." According to the lawyer, Paay is not 100 percent certain that it's her in the video. Langelaar plans to investigate the possibility that her face was Photoshopped into the images.
