Hello...may I please ask for a legal advice as I do not have the financial capability to get my own lawyer and I am not qualified to get a PAO service. My male neighbor kicked me in my tummy and spit on my face while I was inside my apartment, standing on my screen door talking to my landlady. He spit on my face thru the screen door and he forced open the door to kick me in my tummy. I am a female, 33 years old but I am a small girl while my neighbor is big and tall. I had my medico legal at PGH and I already filed a complaint at our barangay. The thing is during the 1st hearing with our Barangay Captain, my neighbor and his wife are still very proud instead of being apologetic to what they have done to me. I was shaking and really traumatized when I saw them during the hearing...We will have our second hearing this week but the thing is, I do not want to see them again. My question is, is it possible to just ask our Barangay Captain to just let them promise and sign not to bully or hurt me in any way without my presence? What could I say to our Barangay Captain that would let him assist me in this case without my presence because I really do not want to see my neighbor anymore. It just scared me too much.
Thank you for your usual support and help. Hoping for your response.
