(Please note this is just a partail paste of what is the full blown contents of the counter affidavit, as I just want you to see what Martin was wasting his time with fighting when he had other important matters to get done before another murder attempt was performed against him.)

7.4 Fourth, this Ludy Vanessa Galo was even one who volunteered information to me as the identity of the hired gun man who shot me last January 11, 2009 and also to the mastermind of said shooting. In fact, she told the tourist police in Panglao during her interview that she knows the suspect and that the suspect told her that it was my wife who was the one who had hired the said suspect to kill me, she even executed in an Affidavit dated February 5, 2009 to support the criminal complaint for Attempted Murder filed against the suspect before the Provincial prosecution Office of Bohol. It is just unfortunate that the contents of her Affidavit submitted to said Office by the tourist police of Panglao were already different from what she actually told the police at the time she was interviewed. So why would she do all theseâ€”help me know and find the suspect and mastermind of the shooting and even help me prosecute them, if I allegedly raped her? And
7.5 Fifth, and most importantly, when this Ludy Vanessa Galo was interviewed by the tourist police, she never told them that she was raped by me, and in fact after the said interview, she even stayed and slept in my house together with other employees since they were also scared of the shooting incident. Again, if she was indeed raped last December 15, 2008, why would she stay and sleep in the house of the man who she has accused of raping her and in the place where she was allegedly raped? Clearly, the above actions and behavior of Ludy Vanessa Galo are not inconsistent with human nature but are also inconsistent with that of an alleged rape victim;
8 . That moreover, this Ludy Vanessa Galo, aside from being over friendly with foreigners, is also known for making up stories and/or lying. In fact, when she was still working at the SHE BAR, she kept on telling the other employees and even some guests that she is my girlfriend and that we have been together for six (6) months already. She even also told them that I would give her my house and lot in Tawala Panglao. She also claimed that she has been working at the SHE BAR for two (2) months already and that she was already nineteen years old. All these are obviously not true. But we (the following other employees and I) just did not mind what Ludy Vanessa Galo was saying because she already has a reputation of making up stories and even lying. That is why I am not actually surprised that she agreed to be used in the filing of these fabricated, incredible, baseless and malicious criminal complaints for rape against me considering that fabricating and concocting stories like the instant complaints would not be easy for Ludy Vanessa Galo but it would be natural for her reputation;
9. That furthermore, the Medical Certificate attached to the complaint should not be given any evidentiary value or weight considering that the date of the examination considering that the date of the examination of Ludy Vanessa Galo was conducted only on February 1, 2009 while the date of the alleged incidents was on December 15, 2008. Besides, it cannot also be discounted that this Ludy Vanessa Galo no longer a virgin considering that she is very accommodating to the foreigners in Panglao and is known to actively pursue them. In fact, she could have very well engaged in sexual activities prior to said examination. And lastly, the said certificate does not even indicate that she was a victim of rape;
10. That it is very clear from the foregoing that all allegations of Ludy Vanessa Galo as narrated in her affidavit are not only fabricated and trumped up but are also tonally absurd, illogical, ridiculous, incredible and downright preposterous. Hence, there is no legal and factual basis to charge me for two (2) counts of RAPE IN RELATION TO R.A. 7610, and therefore, humbly prays for the dismissal of these instant Complaints filed against me;
11. That I am executing this Counter-Affidavit to attest the facts above-stated and to prove my innocence to the fabricated, ridiculous, incredible, baseless and malicious charges leveled against me.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this March 13, 2009 in the City of Tagbilaran, Bohol, Philippines.
