It really is alarming when police officers, who are the ones who enforce the laws, are willfully ignorant of the law. This is why Raffy Tulfo hardly heard the side of PO1 Jan Andrew Parreño, who has been keeping his two-year-old daughter away from her mother, complainant Fatima Santos.
According to the law, mothers are awarded custody of minors 7 years old and below should the parents be estranged. This is why Raffy Tulfo didn’t waste his breath reasoning with PO1 Parreño — he went straight to trying to recover Fatima’s beloved daughter.
With the help of police and other elements of the local government, Fatima was able to finally take her daughter home, but not without Parreño’s side fighting tooth and nail for the child.

When the two sides finally went face to face in front of barangay officials, tensions ran high and words weren’t minced. PO1 Jan Andrew Parreño’s parents exchanged heated words with Fatima, but she did not back down.
First, Fatima revealed that her policeman husband would frequently hurt her and threatened her with a gun, prompting her to leave the man as early as 2016.

Since then, the two-year-old girl has been kept from Fatima, with the help of PO1 Parreña’s parents.
Even in front of barangay officials, Parreña’s parents were firm in reprimanding Fatima. Although very emotional, the distraught mother answered to every scream and insult she got from her in-laws.
At one point, her mother-in-law shouted at her face, “Tumahimik ka!”
What prompted Raffy Tulfo, Fatima, and other elements to actually file a case against the Parreña’s was the patriarch’s clear threats against Fatima:
“Baka gusto mo sa susunod ipatimbuwang na lang kita.”
