Bruce Posted February 22, 2012 Posted February 22, 2012 I am going to propose a legal question and would like opinions based on PINOY LOGIC not western logic. Since there has been a reoccuring theme about 'sexpats' and I had already posted a short bit about my opinion that the term and the negative view there of was unwarranted and way over used, I further came up with this situation and I have no answer (insert comments from Tom and Dave HERE_________ )1. Western logic says that there can be no 'contract' to govern an illegal concept or propsal. (1st yer law school stuff).2. Western governments always have the 'option' to prosecute even if the victim or supposed victim does not want to prosecute.Lets set those concepts aside. And lets not get into any child molester situations. ONLY Pinoy logic / law here.Now, before I first came to Phils and since I have been here, it was and has been explained to me that unless there is a 'complaint' there is no investigation. Further, if there is an investigation and an arrest is made, it is quite possible that the family or victim can be paid a certain amount and the complaint is withdrawn. End of story.The usual example is that if I am killed and no complaint by my family, then no investigation. If a Pinoy is killed and the dead person's family is paid and then agree, then the 'case' is dropped.But my question here is about relationships. Say a 15, 16 or 17yr old girl. Can her family enter into an agreement with a foreigner to 'allow' her to have a relationship with him and then the law regarding consent under 18 is ignored? Can the government still bring a case?Usually all related stories I read on this forum revolve around scams when the girl is lying about her age and then a case is brought to extort money from the foreigner. NOT WHAT I AM ASKING HERE.No scam intent. No sex with out parental consent as the imaginary foreigner is approaching the family like it USED to be in asking the father permission to marry the daughter. Not for casual sex like the temporary 4hr marriage in islam that allows men to cheat on their current wife..... But an actual relationship with an underage (not a child) girl.Since 'we' all seem to have seen the same thing at the (damn) mall... older guy... possible under age girl friend..... I was wondering if, using Pinoy logic, the above situation is able to be used as say a 'safe harbor' as then the family is well aware of the relationship and has given consent (I again, am not asking about WHY the family has given consent hehehehe can you say 32" TV?)Willing girl, willing family willing foreigner..... What are the options? And before anyone starts with the ... a 15, 16, 17 yr old IS a child... that is wrong from a biological stand point AND there is good reason to believe than the great grandmother and the women before her generation, of many forum members were married by age 14..... I am not looking for any moral answers. Just Pinoy legal logic / outcomes Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
