Mrs. Leonisa Espenilla reached out to Raffy Tulfo In Action team to report the insolence of a purok chairman towards her.
According to the complainant, purok chairman Santiago Pineda of Purok Chairman Mapayapa, Brgy. Dela Paz, Antipolo City grabbed her breast while she was doing house chores (cooking tilapia).
Yet, according to the purok official, it was Leonisa who first gave the motive by doing a sexy dance where later provoked him to do the disrespectful acts.
“Ikaw rin kasi ang nagbigay ng motibo, yung pagsayaw-sayaw mo ng ganyan,” said Pineda in a recorded video.
Espenilla wanted to file a case against the purok chairman because of what he did where she also found an ally who is also a former victim of Pineda.
Christine Joy Palo is willing to stand as a witness apart from the sister of Espenilla to make sure that the aggressor will stop committing the same disrespectful acts against women.
According to Atty. Gareth Tungol, the Chief of Staff, Office of Hon. Jocelyn P. Tulfo, ACT-CIS Partylist, one of the cases that the complainant can file is Acts Of Lasciviousness which is punishable for 6 months to 6 years.
