People vs Alejandro Mandap
Article 37- Incest
At 18, Marian Mandap was already a mother of two – three year old Fernand and five-month old Minerva. The father of Fernand is April Dimaliwat whom Marian could not marry because of her father’s objection. But Minerva’s father happens to be the father also of Marian. With a common father, Marian and Minerva are sisters. Alejandro raped his daughter 4 times in 1991 as a result she gave birth to Minerva. Marian failed to report all those incidents due to Mandap’s threat of killing her if she will but she was able to take note of the dates as to when she was assaulted. She was finally able to report those rapes after she gave birth. Mandap rasied alibi as self-defense claiming that he was not at home during the days alleged by Marian as he was elsewhere doing business. Marian’s statement cannot be belied however because her testimonies were direct and straightforward. Further, her statement is corroborated by her brother who witnessed the last act of rape done against her. The children attested that their father is cruel and has time and again abused her and her brothers. Mandap is convicted to suffer the four counts of rape.
