Vanessa

pw-istorya-ng-linggo-inside-vanessaPinoy Weekly Online published this story a bit ahead of the rest. It about the case of Vanessa, a 22-year old university student allegedly raped by another American who introduced himself as a member of the US Marine Corps, visiting the country, Gabriela says, under the auspices of “Joint US Military Assistance Group / Balikatan.” The alleged rapist was not named, and was called “John Jones.”

Isa na namang Pinay nagreklamong ginahasa ng US Marine

Isa na namang Pilipina ang ginahasa diumano ng sundalong Kano sa Pilipinas.

Ayon sa Gabriela, militanteng alyansang pangkababaihan na dinulugan ng biktima, ginahasa ng isa umanong sundalong Kano si Vanessa (di tunay na pangalan) sa isang hotel sa Makati, noong Abril 19.

Sinabi umano ni Vanessa na nagpakilala sa kanya ang Kano bilang “miyembro ng US Marines.”

Tumanggi ang Gabriela na pangalanan ang sundalo. Hiniling din ni Vanessa na huwag ilabas ang pangalan at imahen niya sa midya.
