The family of former actress Anna Margarita Gonzales sought the help of ShowbizCentral to let the public know that her Spanish husband allegedly abductedtheir two children.
Last Sunday, April 6, in Showbiz Central, AnnaMargarita's mother, Charito Gonzales, granted an interview to explain for herdaughter. Charito is the wife of former matinee idol Jose Mari Gonzales.
"This is the first time and this will be the last time Iwill speak in TV," Charito started. "Ihave never spoken in TV regarding my children, you know, because we are afamily that...we don't, you know, our private lives."
Then, she narrated how the husband of Anna Margarita, who isalso the sister of former sexy actress Christina Gonzales, left their housewith their children. She said, "Her twochildren 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 oftwo sisters who work in the Spanish Embassy."
Following this, the Gonzales family decided to file a caseagainst 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 casebecause 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 takeoff like a thief in the night."
She added that Anna even tried to contact her husband but tono avail. Also, she said, "My daughtereven tried to give gifts for the children and he rejected everything."
Charito then described that her daughter is depressed rightnow because of too much worry about her children. She told Showbiz Central, "She's beenwith me for four months already. She'sfine, she's very fine except that she's very depressed. Very naturally, a mother will be very depressed if her childrenwill 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 theybelong, 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 Ifeel, okay? And my daughter feels so bad, she's so depressed over herchildren."
In the end, she was tough in saying that their family willfight to have Anna's children back. "This is not fair, what they have done to mydaughter. I'm a mother, too, and ifthey did that to my children, I will fight to death. We are going to fight because this I will not take sitting downneither will my husband. We are goingto fight," said Charito firmly.
