One of the charactersitics of criminal law is territoriality,meaning, generally, a person can only be punished for a crime in the Philippines if it was committed therein.

However, there are some exceptions that might apply to your case, namely:

a) The Revised Penal Code provides:

Article 2. Application of its provisions.

- The provisions of this Code shall be enforced not only within the Philippine Archipelago, including its atmosphere, its interior waters and maritime zone, but also outside of its jurisdiction, against those who:

1. Should commit an offense while on a Philippine ship or airship.

b) If the crime is committed in a place where the Phillipines has jurisdiction such as an embassy.

If your case will not fall on any of the said exceptions, then, you cannot file a criminal case in the Philippines.

Thanks for the fast reply, What I posted didn't happen to me nor referring to anyone related to me. It "almost" happen only last few days to me and the same situation may happen in future. So, I started searching my legal rights and I didn't find the answer 'till I found this forum.
Well, in that case. If I get punched in face, that guy will be jailed (abroad) but will be deported also without any criminal records in philippines.
I think it's time to add some clause to the revised penal code. To protect those who suffered violence abroad on the hand of their own kababayan.
Once again thanks.
