He used his connections as a police major and had her jailed instead.
Thousands of domestic violence cases are seen on a daily basis wherein women are raped, hurt and killed eventually. The most common type of domestic violence is Intimate partner violence, which is violence against a spouse or other intimate partner. Domestic violence can take a number of forms including physical, emotional, verbal, economic and sexual abuse, which can range from subtle, forcible forms to marital rape and to violent physical abuse that results in disfigurement or death. Tragically, most of these stories go untold, and attackers go unpunished.
But for this woman, her husband’s actions are just too much to ignore. The husband, who is a police major and a doctor, turned the tables against her and used his connections as a police officer to have her jailed instead.
The woman first met the police major when she was working as a nurse. The man reportedly threatened her until she gave him his number and dated him. For four years, her husband physically abused her and even threatened her family whenever she tried to rebel against him. The woman was then left with no choice but to report him to a show hosted by Raffy Tulfo. In the Philippines, the Tulfo brothers are known to brave against and catch criminals reported by citizens.
The woman reportedly filed a case against the said police major under Republic Act No. 9262 also known as the “Anti-Violence against Women and their children (VAWC) Act of 2004,” but was jailed instead, after her husband used his connections to turn the tables on her.
The major apparently filed a physical injury case against her and she was subpoenaed. The man purposely wrote the wrong address, to make sure it doesn’t reach his wife. Because she didn’t show up, the police major was able to secure a warrant of arrest against her. He made it a point to jail her on a Friday night, making it impossible for her to bail out for three days.
The woman was visibly scared of her husband and asked Tulfo if he could assist her in getting protection against her husband. Tulfo then personally called Director General Oscar Albayalde, to make sure that the woman gets the protection she needs.
As of this article’s writing, the police major was relieved of his position and is now facing charges of abuse.
