A former member of an all-female dance group has asked a court protection order against her husband and his parents “due to repeated emotional and physical abuse.”

Gabriela Partylist said former “Sexbomb” dancer and comedian Sugar Mercado filed before the Quezon City Regional Trial Court a criminal case against her husband, Kristoffer Jay Go, for violation of Republic Act 9263 or the Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act.

Mercado claimed that Go “inflicted repeated emotional and physical abuse on her, sometimes with the direct and indirect involvement of Go’s parents since 2010.”

Quoting Mercado, Gabriela said Mercado received “repeated expressions of threats against her life” and the custody of her children was taken away from her.

In the civil case filed by Mercado, she said she wanted to have the custody of her children.

Gabriela commended Mercado for her courage and the group said they would provide counseling services to Mercado to empower her after the abuse she has undergone.
“We hope that the legal process that Ms. Mercado chose to pursue results [in] a safer and more secure future for her and [her] family,” Gabriela Representative Emmi De Jesus said in a statement on Friday.

De Jesus encouraged the public to continue being vigilant on violence against women and children and help victims bring their problems to proper venues.

“Women should not feel alone and women should know that violence is not normal in any relationship,” she said. NC/RAM
