Andy Bautista exit more likely after Hontiveros kidnapping stunt

In yesterday’s “The Kidnapper-Senator Risa Hontiveros”, I explained how Senator Risa Hontiveros is criminally liable for violating, among others, the law against kidnapping and serious illegal detention. Save for the usual dilatory tactics associated with moneyed defendants, I expect a pretty speedy trial, as the elements of the crime can be very easily proven.

But the ramifications of Hontiveros’ audacity extends beyond the confines of the courtroom, as her stupidest move yet come with blowbacks that her tiny brain was unable to foresee.

Senator Risa Hontiveros took custody of the three witnesses — 31-year-old and two minors aged 16 and 13 years old — since Sunday (August 20) [MB], without authorization from the minors’ parents and/or legal guardians.

Some camps argue that Senator Hontiveros and her accomplices may be liable for violating Article 267 of the Revised Penal Code, which covers Kidnapping and Serious Illegal Detention, so let’s see if she can indeed be sued for it.

I consulted my lawyer-friends and for the preparation of this article.

TRANSCRIPT: Q and A with Comelec chair's brother Martin Bautista

A couple of weeks ago, Comelec chair Andres "Andy" Bautista's wife, Patricia "Tisha" Bautista, revealed to the public pieces of evidence that strongly suggest that the husbad amassed ill-gotten wealth during his stint in the government. 

In defense of his brother Andy, Martin Bautista, a practicing gastroenterologist in the United States, came out several days after the revelation, claiming that much of Andy's alleged wealth came from him. Martin has since appeared in several shows, and he decided to reach out to social media bloggers and newspaper columnists by granting an interview.
