“DITO KITA RARAPE-PIN” | LPU Dean Arcilla nag-resign sa gitna ng sexual harassment case
Sa kabila ng pagkagulat dahil sa inasal ng dekano at dating ambassador ay pinaunlakan pa rin ng biktima ang alok nitong paghahatid sa kanya.
HARASSMENT SA LOOB NG KOTSE
Pagkadating sa parking lot ay napansin ni Rojas na nasa loob na ng kotse ni Arcilla ang driver nito. Sa kabila nito ay kailangang umalis sandali ng tsuper upang kunin ang nakalimutang IPAD ng dekano sa kanyang opisina.
“We were alone inside the car. He suddenly said, “You really turn me on”, I was in complete shock and was not able to say anything. He tried to grab my face and said “Pa-kiss nga”, I refused. The driver came in. I was already scared but I thought the Dean will not do any inappropriate behaviour in front of his driver.”
Bagama’t natatakot na dahil sa pangyayari ay inakala na lamang ni Rojas na hindi gagawa si Arcilla ng anumang hindi magandang kilos sa harap ng kanyang tsuper. Dito nagkamali ang biktima.
“We’re finally outside Lyceum. The Dean grabbed my hand and said, “Bakit ang lamig ng kamay mo, kinakabahan ka sa akin noh?”, I said “No, sir” and pull my hand back. He get it again.”
Habang nagaganap ang pang-aabuso, pinilit ng biktima na ibahin ang pangyayari sa pamamagitan ng pagbubukas ng ibang topic sa kanilang usapan. Sa kabila nito ay hindi natinag ang dating embahador.
“I opened up topics like asking him if he remembers any of my classmates. I showed him pictures of them and said he does remember the names. I was browsing my phone to look for more pictures and he touch my lips, and said “You have a very kissable lips”. I took his hands away immediately. He touch my lips for more or less three times throughout the ride. He even said that he will not do my recommendation if I didn’t give him a kiss.”
“I can’t fully remember the chronology of the comments that he made, but I surely do remember verbatim of such. He asked me if I have a boyfriend. He asked me if I am still a virgin. He said he went to Thailand, and told me, in a painfully slow and malicious manner, the best part of his business trip is the massage because it has happy ending. The question If I am still a virgin was not only asked once by the Ambassador, he asked me a lot of times, and I just keep saying next question or I just shrugged it off.”
Matapos nito tila ginamit pa ni Arcilla ang Foreign Service Officer (FSO) Examination para bigyang katwiran ang kabastusan nito. Sinabi umano ni Arcilla na isa sa mga itinanong sa isa sa mga kumukuha ng FSO exam ay kung ano ang kulay ng panloob nito at kung saan ito gawa.
” It seems like, he is making me feel that asking if I am still a virgin is justifiable as such kind of questions were asked in FSO. Inside the car, he also make similar comments that he don’t really remember me and maybe I was ugly before. He even asked “Nagpagawa ka ba?”, he was wondering if I did something in my face. Throughout the ride, he was holding my hand and constantly squeezing it, I felt like he tried to reach until my elbows. But I would try to pretend that I need to check my phone or get something from my bag to pull my hand back.”
Nakababa si Rojas mula sa sasakyan ni Arcilla bandang 7:45 hanggang 8:00 ng gabi sa Coastal Road.
Hindi lubos maisip ni Rojas na sasapitin niya ang pangyayari. Aniya, hindi niya inakala na ang isang taong inirerespeto ng madami ay magagawa ang naturang bagay.
“Pag-uwi ko, nakatulala lang ako, hindi ko talaga alam yung gagawin. Inaya ako ng mom ko kumain, sabi ko busog na ako tas nagkulong na ako sa kwarto. That’s where I started to think na it’s impossible na isang beses pa lang nya to ginawa, ginawa nya to sa harap ng driver nya ng walang takot. That’s where I started to think I need to complain about this.”-DCR
