Sunshine’s lawyer, Atty. Carlo Bonifacio Alentajan, told Yahoo! OMG Philippines that they will file the case on Tuesday, August 13, at the Quezon City prosecutor’s office.

Alentajan revealed that her client would ask the court to hold Cesar liable “for violation of RA 9262,” also known as Anti-Violence Against Women and Children (VAWC) Act of 2004.

Sunshine has reportedly filed a Temporary Protection Order against the actor, but her legal counsel refused to talk about the details of the petition, the report said.

“As much as I would like to discuss the case, the court prohibits us. Our statement would be that Ms. Cruz is after the welfare of her three children. That is her only concern right now,” Atty. Alentajan said, according to the news provider.
