DOJ files more raps vs Tanenglians

THE Department of Justice yesterday approved the filing of more kidnapping and physical battery charges against a billionaire, his wife, and two children before the Quezon City Regional Trial Court in connection with the complaint lodged by a minor housemaid against them.

Sued for nine counts of violation of Republic Act 7610 (the Anti Child Abuse Law), violation of Republic Act 9208 (Anti-Trafficking of Persons), kidnapping, and serious illegal detention were Mariano Tanenglian, his wife Aleta, and children Maximillian and Fayette.

This was the second time the Tanenglian family was issued by the DOJ before the courts. Last Jan. 14, the DOJ filed similar charges against them before the QCRTC on the complaint of another housemaid, Mary Jane Sollano, 19.

“In this case, all the elements of the afore-mentioned crimes are present. Respondents who are private individuals illegally deprived complainant of her liberty ny not allowing her to leave their premises from the time of her employment… with threat if she made an attempt to leave, something of great harm will happen to her. This detention, needless to state, is deprivation of th complainant’s liberty,” Assistant Prosecution Attorney II Xerxes Garcia said in his resolution.

The case stemmed from the complaint of Aljane Bacanto who claimed that her ordeal started last May 2006 in the residence of the Tanenglians at Brgy. Siena, Quezon City.
