A dismissed minister of Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) on Tuesday filed a complaint before the Department of Justice (DOJ) against the Sanggunian of INC on Tuesday.
According to Atty. Trixie Angeles, counsel of Isaias Samson, they filed a complaint for serious illegal detention before the DOJ against the entire membership of the Sanggunian, headed by Ka Glicerio Santos, Jr.
The complaint stemmed from the alleged nine days of treatment on Samson and his family as prisoners in their own house.
During the said period, the complainant claimed that they were not allowed to go out of their own house, their lines of telephones and internet were cut off, and the health of his wife was endangered because she has just undergone a heart operation when they were placed under “house arrest” in their townhouse in Tierre Bella, Quezon City.
The complaint alleged that they were even guarded by armed men.
Samson claimed they were only able to escape when they pretended to go to the church.
According to Angeles, Samson would like to obtain justice in the sufferings that his family went through. PNA
