Claudine Barretto Slaps Anti-Wire Tapping Case Against Raymart SantiagoClaudine Barretto filed a case against estranged husband Raymart Santiago that pertains to his violation of her rights as a private citizen. The actress alleged that Raymart wired one of their conversations and took a video of her without her knowledge.
Her legal counsel, Atty. Junelet Mataro, said that Claudine doesn't actually want to file various cases against the actor, but Raymart left her with no room to maneuver. What he did (taking a video of Claudine) is a clear violation of the actress' right to privacy.
Although they want to focus on the RA 9262 or Violence Against Women and Children case they filed against Raymart, Claudine chose to file another one against her estranged husband because the evidence will be used against her.
Raymart alleged that the videos will prove the actress is a drug addict.
According to Atty. Junelet, "You see, our Constitution provides our Bill of Rights, and one of those rights is that every person shall have the right to privacy in communication."
"And any evidence obtained in violation of this right shall be inadmissible as evidence in any proceeding, whether it be judicial or legislative or quasi-judicial procedure."
In Raymart's counter-affidavit, the actor admitted he took the video while Claudine was charging towards him and running to his car. Raymart said there are other videos they can present to the court.
Claudine denied knowledge of these videos. This is the first time she had an inkling her husband was taking videos of her at that time. She lamented how much Raymart disrespected her and their family that he didn't even protect them from those he allowed to take videos of them like the maids, drivers and even the gardener.
