A day after figuring in a scuffle at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), actor Raymart Santiago and columnist Ramon Tulfo are holding the next round of their "fight" in court.
On Monday, Tulfo went to Pasay City Hall to lodge a complaint against Santiago and his wife, actress Claudine Barretto, and several "John Does," for physical injuries.
In an interview over radio dzBB, Tulfo's lawyer Mario General said: "Definitely, we're going to file a criminal case against husband and wife, and John Does for physical injuries."
General said they are just waiting for the final medical report of Tulfo.
Meanwhile, in a separate radio dzBB report, Santiago said he also intends to file a complaint against Tulfo for physical injury and coercion.
When asked in an interview if he intends to sue Tulfo, Santiago said, "Opo (yes)."
Tulfo and Santiago engaged in a fight at the NAIA-3 Sunday afternoon after Tulfo started taking footage of Barretto as she was complaining to a Cebu Pacific attendant about their baggage, which was not loaded on their flight from Boracay.
Santiago claimed that Tulfo tried to punch him when he approached him and asked why he was taking footage.

On the other hand, Tulfo claimed that Santiago and his companions ganged up on him.
PO2 Joel Landicho of the Pasay City police said they have obtained statements from Tulfo and the Santiagos.
"Ito tinatawag nating complaint against complaint, meron silang kanya-kanyang alegasyon," Landicho said. - VVP/HS, GMA News
