COMPLAINT - AFFIDAVIT
I, BERNARD PRADO, of age, married, and a resident of
Estaka, Dipolog City, after having been duly sworn to
according to law depose and say:
That I am legally married to Clarissa Mayor in a
religious ceremony before Rev. Josefino Masid at the Parish
Church of Dipolog City on June 18, 2014, xerox copies of the
aforesaid marriage contracts are hereto attached as Annexes
A and B, forming integral parts of this affidavit;
After our marriage, I built a house for our permanent
residence and as our conjugal home in Estaka, Dipolog City
and furnished it with all the comforts well within my means;
At the start of our marriage, I was led to believe by my
wife of her total concern, love and devotion to me valid in
turn I lavished her with all the material comfort at my
command. As a token of my love and unfailing trust, we went
sightseeing and on second honeymoon to Singapore only
last month.
Sometimes during the last week of January 2015, while
I went on my normal work routine, my son Rocco took me
inside in confidence and told me that he has some very
delicate matters to take up with which may be
misinterpreted by me or may be taken by him in a wrong
light; however, he said that his valid dignity of the family is

at mistake and I have to know it whatever be the


consequence. After I gave him the go signal, he narrated
that my wife Clarissa Mayor has been unfaithful to me
having illicit relationship with another man. He informed me
that our maid Maria Santos had been aware of the
relationship and the man usually went to my house and even
slept there whenever I was in Cebu. I got angry and so I
suggested to think of a plan so we can catch my wife redhanded.
We agreed to put our plan of action in operation on
February 13, 2015 since I will be leaving for Cebu in the
morning on that day. I thought of removing a glass of the
jealousy so the inside of the bedroom can be seen from the
outside. Having completed the plans, I told my wife that I will
be leaving for Cebu on that day. I instructed my son Rocco to
inform me immediately of the result of the plan.
Almost midnight of February 13, 2015, I was informed
by my son that the operation was successful and resulted in
the arrest of my wife and Mario Larino inside our bedroom.
When I returned to Dipolog City from Cebu on February
14, 2015, I was shown the photographs taken inside our
master bedroom and I am attaching hereto the photographs
which are marked as Annexes C, D, E, F and G.
That I am formally charging my wife, Clarissa Mayor
and Mario Larino of the crime of Adultery against them.
CONTRARY TO LAW.
City of Dipolog, Philippines, April 8, 2016.
