A friend, poor young woman age 19 went to work cleaning at a property in the Leyte area. The property caretaker attempted to rape her, she grab a knife and defended herself, seriously injuring the attacker. As of this post, i do not know if he is alive or still in hospital. Now she is in prison. Police ask for 50,000php for her release. I do not understand the legal system? What happens next, when my friend is poor (an both parents are dead) and she provides for three other younger bro and sisters? She has no money, is there free legal aid to assist her?
Thanks for your timely response..
