Double whammy for a rape victim

/ 03:05 AM October 07, 2014

Chief Supt. Alexander Ignacio’s predicament should serve as a lesson to other ranking police officials who give away their calling cards indiscriminately.

A police chief superintendent is the equivalent of a brigadier general in the military.


Ignacio is in hot water with his wife after he was linked to Alyzza Agustin, considered one of 100 sexiest women of 2013 by FHM, a glossy Playboy-type magazine.

Ignacio is not only facing his wife’s wrath, he is also being ridiculed—or envied—by the public for his alleged ties with a “kiss and tell” woman.


This was after Agustin posted on Facebook last week that she evaded being issued a ticket for a traffic violation after she showed Ignacio’s calling card to the traffic enforcer who apprehended her.

Written on the back of the card was a request for assistance for Agustin, his “EA,” in case she was going to be cited for a traffic violation.

Ignacio later denied he knew the model, adding that the card carried the wrong information about him (his designation, for one), so it was probably fake.

But how come she was proudly carrying his calling card? How was she able to have the card in her possession, fake or not?

(Agustin also issued a statement, clarifying that she does not know the police officer personally. She also apologized to Ignacio and his family—Ed)

Men should never have a relationship with a battle-axe.


A well-known broadcaster made this mistake.

He and the woman, a lawyer in a revenue agency, were lovers until they had a nasty spat over hygiene habits.

The woman took offense and broke up with him.

A few months later, she got back at her former lover when she filed a case in court against him for extortion.

The guy’s only crime was his lack of tact.

I’d like to quote what Ramon J. Farolan, a retired Air Force general and former customs commissioner, wrote in his Inquirer column, Reveille, yesterday (Monday).

“Should anything happen to President Aquino, Vice President Jejomar Binay would take over as president,” Farolan said.

“This would have a tremendous impact on the political landscape of the country. I leave it up to the imagination of our readers as to what the future would be should this scenario take place,” he added.

God forbid!

We would have a Binay for President, a Binay in the Senate, a Binay in the House of Representatives, a Binay as mayor of the country’s premier city, and most probably a Binay as secretary of health.

Political dynasty at its worst.

Councilor Wilfredo Limboc of Balayan, Batangas province, has been charged with raping a municipal employee of the town.

Limboc not only allegedly violated the woman but also reportedly infected her with a venereal disease.

A double whammy for the victim!
