A Filipino guy has recently been arrested by the police in Marikina City just last week for physically assaulting his live-in partner and for taking footages of their sexual activities.
In a blog report by Philippines Lifestyle News, we learn that the victim has filed a formal complaint against Mart Angelo Rosales, the suspect, who is a resident of Room B, Carmelita Compounds, Brgy. Parang, Marikina City. The complaint was filed by Carolina Adorna.
According to the victim, Rosales had the bad habit of beating her. In fact, the last time that he attacked her was just around 9 PM the same day that she decided to formally file a complaint. He often punched and kicked her, often suspecting that she’s having affairs with someone else. At one point, the suspect even threatened her that his friends will rape her. Adorna was also locked up at their home and was not allowed to go outside. What’s worse, Rosales repeatedly took videos of their sexual acts even if she was against it.
Fortunately, Rosales has already been taken into custody by the authorities. As a result of his actions, he has been charged with violations of RA 9262, or the Anti-Violence Against Women Act.
Hopefully, this will serve as a lesson for men out there who have abusive behavior towards their partners or women in general.
As we all know, the new President Rodrigo Duterte is a strong supporter of women’s rights. In fact, there are a lot of laws implemented in Davao when he was serving as a mayor in the city. We do not doubt that with his new administration, new laws will be implemented for the benefit of women and those who will violate those laws will probably be facing harsh punishment.
Let’s all wait and see what awaits Rosales and other women-abusers in the near future.
