Battered maids raps bosses

The two housemaids who were maltreated by their Filipino-Chinese employers filed a complaint against the suspects with the Quezon City Police District.

Mary Jane Sollano, 18, and Aljane Bacanto, 16, were accompanied by their lawyer, Al Parreño, in filing charges of physical injuries and illegal detention against Mariano Tanenglian and his wife.

Parreño said the victims were not allowed to go out of the house at the time they worked with the Tanenglians.

He said the victims were oftentimes subjected to physical abuse by Tangelian’s wife, Aleta, and their two children.

Sollano was rescued by the Commission on Human Rights, Department of Social Welfare and Development and QC Police Women’s Desk.

Bacanto escaped from the employer’s home last Aug. 10.
