Article 332 of the Revised Penal Code states that
[su_note note_color=”#f0d9d9″ text_color=”#282828″ radius=”8″]“No criminal, but only civil liability shall result from the commission of the crime of theft, swindling, or malicious mischief committed or caused mutually by the following persons:
1. Spouses, ascendants and descendants, or relatives by affinity in the same line;
2. The widowed spouse with respect to the property which belonged to the deceased spouse before the same shall have passed into the possession of another; and
3. Brothers and sisters and brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, if living together.”[/su_note]
Supposedly this law is to “preserve family unity and solidarity”.
This answers a lot of questions about the mentality of Filipinos… diba?Published in
