Hi mga Moderators! I made a new post regarding my probably unique case. I hope you can help me with this. Here's the whole story. Just today February 15, I received a call from Makati Women's Helpdesk that I do have a Police Blotter charged by the wife of my girfriend's brother accusing me of Grave threat and Oral defamation. Earlier this day, my gf's brother texted me that he lost the cellphone (probably snatched daw) that I gave to my gf and he told me that he will replace it but didnt give any timeframe. I replied by saying that "tol sana nga lang nadukutan ka tlga at hindi gumagawa ng palusot" cause the guy has a reputation of selling things thats not his. He got mad and said 'akala ko daw kung sino ako magsalita", out of anger i texted in profanity, " putang ina anong gusto mo?" He replied by saying that if i want some, I should go to their house and settle this with his dad in his side. Ofcourse i disagreed, and told him that we meet in a public place instead. He disagreed either, so I txted him "bakla ka pala eh". When I tried to call him, his wife answered yelling at me and saying I was the one that is gay repeatedly until I dropped the call. I told them in the last text that whenever your husband is ready, just tell me so. thats the last text. An hour later, the Women's helpdesk of Makati called me regarding the Police blotter and I am being accused of Grave Threat, and Oral Defamation that caused emotional stress daw to the wife of my gf's brother. The Wife would want me to do an "APOLOGY" which is purely just for ego tripping or else they would file a case, the representative told me. I was being informally invited to go to their office to do my statement, but I am hesitant to go alone since its their territory, and I expect them to throw alot of words at me when we meet at the office, they are sort of palengkera kasi. I told the representative that I wouldnt go if theres no Police invitation, and she said that I shouldnt wait for the police invitation to be sent cause it would only make the issue worse. She also adviced me just to contact the wife and settle this once and for all cause she may also think that its a bit immature, and just do what they want to finish this up, which I dont think is the right solution cause they may do this kind of complain again in the future, just to shut me up if they owe me something.
MY QUESTIONS are,
***What if I dont go to the designated office, until I am not receiving any formal police letters yet, would it be used against me?
***Based on my statement of the story, which I believe is far more accurate and bias free from what they've stated in the police blotter, are those accusations thrown at me are really accurate and do they have the chance of winning the case if ever they file? I think the "oral defamation" they were pertaining to is when I said "bakla ka pla eh" to my Gf's Brother" whereas the message was only sent to him and the "Grave Threat" accusation is when I said "Why dont the 2 of us just meet up in a public place to settle this out".
***If I also file for a case because of the false and improper accusations that they made, what would be the proper charge for them? I also want to retrieve the cellphone he lost, and if he couldn't give it, what would be the charge?
***How much would it cost me to file a case, hire an entry level lawyer for the duration of the process?
***Would I be able to file a charge for the damage that it costed me in the future if I pursue to file a case?
***In your own point of view, what would be the best resolution that I would do except do an apology?(The main reason for this is not because I have a high pride but to stop them doing this again in the future)
Mga admin, if any of the questions are restricted to be answered through post, Can you please just send it through a personal message on my account.
Open din po tong thread for opinions, even if hindi kayo lawyer, just make sure that it would be in the topic and with sense.
I Hope you can help me with this! Godbless you all!
