The family of former actress Anna Margarita Gonzales sought the help of Showbiz
Central to let the public know that her Spanish husband allegedly abducted
their two children.
Last Sunday, April 6, in Showbiz Central, Anna
Margarita's mother, Charito Gonzales, granted an interview to explain for her
daughter. Charito is the wife of former matinee idol Jose Mari Gonzales.
"This is the first time and this will be the last time I
will speak in TV," Charito started. "I
have never spoken in TV regarding my children, you know, because we are a
family that...we don't, you know, our private lives."
Then, she narrated how the husband of Anna Margarita, who is
also the sister of former sexy actress Christina Gonzales, left their house
with their children. She said, "Her two
children were abducted by her Spanish husband last January 31. Like a thief in the night, he left. They were brought in Madrid with the help of
two sisters who work in the Spanish Embassy."
Following this, the Gonzales family decided to file a case
against Anna's husband, to whom she was married for eight years. "We filed a R.A. 9262 with conspiracy. The case is 08300928, it was in Muntinlupa. I will not go into details about the case
because it's ongoing," explained Charito.
Republict Act No. 9262 is also known as Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act of 2004.
When asked what could have been the cause of this incident,
Anna's mother revealed, "Malalim ang problema.
They were having marital problem, I guess, and he just decided to take
off like a thief in the night."
She added that Anna even tried to contact her husband but to
no avail. Also, she said, "My daughter
even tried to give gifts for the children and he rejected everything."
Charito then described that her daughter is depressed right
now because of too much worry about her children. She told Showbiz Central, "She's been
with me for four months already. She's
fine, she's very fine except that she's very depressed. Very naturally, a mother will be very depressed if her children
will be taken away from her."
Then, as a concerned mother, Charito pleaded to the public,
"I'm asking as a lola, as a mother, to please help us with this case. We want these children back to where they
belong, to the mother because they are minors—one is seven [years old], a boy;
the other one is a girl of five.
"All mothers and all grandmothers will feel the same way I
feel, okay? And my daughter feels so bad, she's so depressed over her
In the end, she was tough in saying that their family will
fight to have Anna's children back. "This is not fair, what they have done to my
daughter. I'm a mother, too, and if
they did that to my children, I will fight to death. We are going to fight because this I will not take sitting down
neither will my husband. We are going
to fight," said Charito firmly.
