Yesterday afternoon was the first time that estrange couple Raymart Santiago and Claudine Barretto met after Claudine filed a TPO (temporary protection Orde) against her husband!
The couple met in front of Judge Lorna Chua Cheng at the Marikina Regional Trial Court for the hearing of the Petition for Sole Custody of Minors/Application for the Issuance of a Writ of Habeas Corpus and Temporary Custody filed by Raymart.
People saw Raymart arrived in court with his brothers while Claudine together with her adopted child Sabina and son Santino was teary eyed while going inside the court.
This is what Raymart said before the hearing:
“Wala akong pangamba dahil kasama ko rito ang pamilya ko. At salamat sa lahat ng mga naniniwala at sumusuporta. I love you Santino! I love you Sabina!”
And after the hearing Raymart was all smiled and said:
“Masaya ako, nakita ko ang mga anak ko.”
And an angry Claudine said:
“Magpa-file kami ng VAWC pagkatapos nito.”
She maybe referring to Anti-Violence Against Women and Children.
