I would like to ask for a legal advice.
There is a letter sent for Mr. JOSELITO SANTOS DELA CRUZ in an address eg. Makati, unfortunately, she was no longer residing in such address. Upon thourough investigation, there is a new found address of hers but only the barangay, town and province were given. Therefore, the letter was sent in "care of" the respective Brgy. Chairman. Sample format was:
Mr. JOSELITO SANTOS DELA CRUZ
c/o Brgy. Chairman Joselito De Guzman
Province Zip Code
The sealed envelop where the letter is enclosed has reached the Brgy. Chairman's office. Upon receipt of the letter, the brgy, chairman opened it and then delivered it to the address of his constituent Mr. JOSELITO SANTOS DELA CRUZ.
Mr. Dela Cruz, upon receiving the open letter, got mad with the sender of the letter for he felt that his right to privacy was violated and now wants to file a case against the sender.
1. The content of the letter is confidential. Is there any case being violated by the the sender of the letter by sending it in care of the Brgy. Chairman?
2. In case the barangay chairman, does not know the address of his constintuent, Mr. DELA CRUZ, does it give him the right to open the letter which is only being cared of to him?
3. In case the barangay chairman knows the address of Mr. DELA CRUZ, does it give him the right to open the letter which is only being cared of to him?
4. Referring to questions 2 and 3, in case the chairman has no right to open the letter which he opened,what case did he violate?
Thank you for your immediate response.
