COMPLAINT-AFFIDAVIT

I, SatellaBrigette-Guiseppe, of legal age, Filipino Citizen, married and a


resident of Santo Carlo Poblacion, Muntilupa City, after being sworn in
accordance with law herby depose and say that:

1. That the respondent VicenzoGuiseppe and I met sometime in


February 2001 while being schoolmates at the Benedictine Abbey School in
Alabang, and became sweethearts after a long and persistent courtship by
respondent;

2. Being madly in love with each other, and since both of our parents
consented, we got married on December 1, 2013 in a civil wedding ceremony
solemnized by Hon. Judge Pietro Salvatore in the city of Muntinlupa. Copy of
the Certificate of Marriage dated January 13, 2013 issued by the National
Statistics Office is hereto attached as Annex A;

3. After our wedding, we lived together as husband and wife in our


conjugal dwelling in an exclusive village at MuzenoAlabang, Muntilupa City;

4. Several months into our marriage, respondent began to exhibit his


irresponsibility and carelessness attitude. He would frequently leave the house
and would come back only after several days on the pretext of working on an
automobile project. Such behaviour on the part of respondent resulted in our
quarrels and verbal altercations.
5. After a nasty quarrel sometime in 2016, the respondent left our
conjugal dwelling and that was the last time I saw him. I then tried to
communicate to him on several occasions, reaching out to his parents in
Catalina Bena, Alabang, wrote to him several letters, and tried to contact his
personal numbers, but to no avail.

6. I then returned to my parents abode at Santo Carlo Poblacion,


Muntilupa City for about three months since I have not heard from respondent,
nor his whereabouts after such events. It was also to cool-off from our tense
marriage relationship in the hopes of reconciling our differences later on.

7. Sometime in August 2017 however, a relative who works in the


City Hall of Muntinlupa informed me that my husband, respondent Vicenzo got
married to another woman, a certain IsabelaAntionietta, in a religious ceremony
solemnized by Fr. Paladin Alessanderson at the St. Peters Cathedral in the City
of Muntilupa, on July 14, 2017. A copy of their Certificate of Marriage is hereto
attached as Annex B;

8. That my marriage with respondent VicenzoGuiseppe is still


subsisting and has not been dissolved nor annulled. That his act of contracting a
second marriage constitutes the crime of Bigamy punishable under Article 349
of the Revised Penal Code.

Thus, I executed the foregoing Complaint-Affidavit to attest to the truth of


the facts stated and for the purpose of charging respondent, whose last known
address is at Buinida, Ayala Alabang Village, Muntilupa City, with the crime of
Bigamy.

AFFIANT SAYETH NAUGHT.

SATELLA BRIGETTE-GUISSEPPE

prosecutor, this 17th day of October, 2017 in the City of Muntilupa.
