Reclusion Perpetua
Yes, the Supreme Court in the case of Albenson Ent. Corp vs. CA, January 11, 1993 in GR # 88694 ruled that in cases like this civil damages could be awarded against the landlord for the act of said landlord violate Article 19 of the civil code.

You can file a civil case for damages.

If the landlord, harassed you or coerced you from leaving, a criminal case for coercion (grave or light) could be filed depending the circumstances.
