In the Philippines if you report someone for a crime i.e burglary, can they retaliate?
The family of the suspects may be dangerous or they don't want to exhaust effort by filing a case and attending to court.
Yes it known for revenge attacks.
A criminal can retaliate in any country of the world - legal or not as he IS A CRIMINAL. I live in the Philippines & have been burgled. I reported to the police who I thought did it (but no proof) the police brought him & me together at the police station but he did not admit anything saying he did not even know where I lived. So in front of the police we explained to him EXACTLY where I lived & if he ever comes in my yard I would kill him. The police said nothing & the criminal did not retaliate or seek any revenge
