Raymart Santiago Dares Claudine Barretto To Prove Her AllegationsIt didn't surprise him that estranged wife Claudine Barretto filed a case against him, saying Raymart Santiago violated RA 9262 or the Anti-Violence Against Women and their Children Act.
She has always threatened to file that particular case against him, so Raymart dared her to come forward with more evidence. It doesn't matter to him if Claudine will push through with the case because he can prove that she's only lying.
"So, hinihintay naman namin at pinaghahandaan na namin yun. May pangsagot naman kami dun. Puwede naman niyang sabihin lahat, lalo na mahilig siya sa media. Mahilig siya magpa-interview."
In truth, Claudine has the right to throw accusations against him. The only thing is, Raymart said she might not be able to prove whatever her allegations were. Asked about the photographs shown by the actress to the press, Raymart said she can show anything she wants to anyone but it doesn't mean they are true.
In the end, Raymart said it is still up to the court to believe the evidence they will present to them.
When it comes to Inday Barretto, the actor told his mother-in-law that they know the truth about their daughter and they should help her get better. He didn't comment on the hurtful comments thrown at him. Instead, Raymart said it is enough for him that he knows the truth about what really happened.
He then thanked Gretchen Barretto for saying that the custody of their two kids--Sabina and Santino--should be awarded to him because he's the most stable of the two.
"Siyempre, nagpapasalamat din ako… kapatid ng asawa ko ang kumakampi sa akin.”
Asked for a message for his kids, Raymart just said he wanted them to know how much he loves them. The actor also added that he cannot talk about whether or not he sees them because there is a gag order released by the court earlier.
On the other hand, Claudine was a no-show during the hearing for the habeas corpus case filed by Raymart. Her legal counsel, Atty. Ferdinand Topacio, was there to represent the actress.
He said Claudine had allergies, so she wasn't able to attend the said hearing. The actress is currently being linked to her lawyer; something which they both denied.
