Dad arrested for raping 13-year-old daughter (Apalit, Philippines)

A couple of interesting things here. Notice that UNNAMED DAD has a HISTORY of doing "something" (i.e. raping). It happened at least once two years ago, but was obviously ignored. Also notice that the complaint was submitted by the "victim's relatives" and that there is NO MENTION of a mother in this account. Makes me wonder if she is working overseas while Daddy plays custodial parent (i.e. rapist). In addition, note that illegal drugs are blamed rather than the Daddy. Usual excuses, cover up for a rapist father.

APALIT -- A 13-year-old girl was allegedly molested by her own father in Apalit town, the police said on Tuesday.

Lolong (not his real name) was brought to the custody of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) last September 25 following a complaint by the victim's relatives that the 64-year-old suspect sexually molested his own daughter Maria (not her real name).

Superintendent Samuel Sevilla, chief of Apalit police, said the crime happened while the victim was watching a television program in their house.

"Based on the statements of the victim's relatives, the suspect has already done something two years ago. But the victim still wasn't raped at that time," said Sevilla.

The medical examination results of the victim confirmed sexual assault on her while the suspect is believed to have been under the influence of illegal drugs when the incident took place.

"According to the information that we have received the suspect is a drug user. Maybe the suspect was under the influence of drugs when the crime happened," said Sevilla.

Sevilla, meanwhile, reminded parents to be more vigilant about their children's welfare.

"For the parents, they should watch over their children more often especially like in this case which involved a minor," said Sevilla.

The suspects' rape case was brought to the provincial prosecutor, pending the filing of his violation of the Protection Against Child Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination.
