3rd Witness: Ronald Ancajas

Witness Ronald Ancajas’s testimony compared to his statements.


Testimony date: September 4, 2012

The third witness is Ronaldo Ancajas (Ronald). He testified, that he is the assistant of Ramgen Bautista starting 2007. When there are no film shootings for Ramgen, he takes leave as personal assistant. He returned in 2009 for six months. He then went back as personal assistant of Ramgen when the latter called him up in July 2011. On the night of October 28, 2011, he was at the lanai at the house located at Phase 6-A, President Avenue, BF  Homes, Parañaque City together with Janelle and Ramgen. Ramgen was then doing shadow boxing. He left first at about 10:00 o’clock in the evening because he was not feeling well. He proceeded to the driver’s quarters and slept.

He woke up at around 11:00 o’clock in the evening of the same day, he was about to spit out at the quarter’s window near where he slept when he noticed “Sir Joseph” (referring to accused Ramon Joseph Bautista) walking going out of the gate of the garage at the back of the house and below the quarter (Note: According to his Sworn Statement, he said he saw them leaving the subdivision and not of the garage gate). Joseph is the brother of Ramgen. Joseph was followed by Mara (Ramona) Bautista who is also a sibling of Ramgen. He saw the two from the window when he was about to spit. The garage below was well lit. He did not mind the incident. He then went back to sleep.

At about 12:30 o’clock, he was awakened by the knocking of the policemen. When he went down, he was handcuffed and was taken to the police headquarters for investigation. He was asked if Ramgen had enemies. He answered in the negative. He knows that the siblings had feuds. The latest feud started because of the Strada car Joseph sold. When he was taken by the policemen, he does not know that Janelle was also hurt. When he saw Joseph went out of the garage, Joseph was wearing a dark colored pants maybe colored navy blue or black. He was also wearing a jacket.

During investigation at the police station, he learned through the television that Mara was abducted. He was not offered the reward money, but he was given P40,000.00 and another P10,000.00. Nothing was mentioned to him by Ramgen about the threat to his (Ramgen’s) life. He is not under police protection. (See TSN of September 4, 2012, pp. 9-125)

CROSS EXAMINATION with comparison with the discrepancies to the exisiting Sworn Statement of the witness:

Ronald Ancajas mentioned in his testimony and statement that he did NOT hear anything at all and did not notice anything unusual that night, except the alleged sightings of the siblings of the victim.

Let’s analyze it, Ancajas was awake obviously when he allegedly “saw” RJ and Ramona Bautista, when he was ‘about to spit’, assuming it to be true, he did not hear the shouting of Janelle asking for help.

However, according to Security Guard Tabada, when they came with the police they heard a voice of a female asking for help at the garage – the garage is below Ramgen’s room and at the above portion of the garage is the living quarters of Ronald Ancajas.

At the time of the crime happened even the maid of the Bautista’s heard a female voice shouting, but Ancajas did not, when in fact the room of the maids and his are just beside each other – maybe Ancajas is playing a deaf ear or he is the assailant.

SO WE ASSUME THAT HE REALLY DID NOT HEAR ANYTHING that he was really sleeping… Let’s explain the supposed “seeing the siblings going out of the village”.

It was revealed during the “Ocular Inspection” last April 17, 2012 that it is physically impossible to see from his room people walking towards the village’s gate at the distance of 15 fathom (dipa) from his place as the view is blocked by two houses and the curve.


This photo proves the lies of Ronald Ancajas about his statement that he saw RJ and Ramona Bautista leaving the subdivision's gate.

Video above: Explanation Photo above: Explanation
Please watch the above video containing the "Ocular inspection" of the court held last April 17.

In the video at 1:31, it will show that the siblings of Ramgen is insisting that from the view of Ronald Ancajas' room from the farthest left corner (POV: Facing the house), while the private prosecutor Atty. Argee Guevarra is insisting that Ancajas saw RJ Bautista going out of the garages' gate and not on the subdivision's.

Better yet, he should be the witness... It is crystal clear from the words of Ronald Ancajas himself that he saw RJ and Ramona going OUT of the SUBDIVISION and not of the GARAGE. He's putting and manipulating the words of Ancajas to build their fake case.

Read Ancajas' Oct. 29, 2011 statement and download it below.

The photo above is a bird's eye view of the vicinity of the house of the Bautista's. This is to show people the proof that we are not lying when we said it is impossible for Ancajas to see. Look at the picture and judge it. That bird's eye view shot came from google maps.

According to his statement below, the guard house or subdivision exit is 18 dipa (fathom) or 108 feet away while RJ Bautista is 15 dipa (fathom) or 90 feet away from him, on his sworn statement he never mentioned he saw them exiting the garage. There are two (2) houses blocking his view, not to mention the wall from the garage blocking his view from his small window. Now, is he telling the truth? You judge.


This is another image that will prove our claim. This is showing the rooms of Ramgen, Ancajas, and the household helpers.

  • The red square is Ramgen's room.

  • The blue arrow is pointing to the window (behind the wall) where Ronald Ancajas supposedly saw the siblings.
  • The green circle is Ancajas' window just beside the household helper's room. (First window is Ancajas')

EXPLANATION: This is the house of the Magsaysay-Bautista's at BF Homes where the tragic incident happened. the red square is Ramgen's room, obviously that image shows that the room of Ramgen is directly below the garage.

On that garage, there are rooms above it wherein it is the sleeping quarters for the drivers and Ancajas, and beside them are the household helper's room. That night only Ancajas was there at his room.

The green circle is the exact window where Ronald Ancajas resides, as you can also notice from the photo there is a wall or a boulder from the garage blocking the view of Ancajas as we also show through the blue arrow pointing to the wall/boulder blocking the view of the window. From that point on it is PHYSICALLY impossible for him to see the guard house as we showed on the map above.

Sworn statement vs video
Comparing the sworn statement of Ancajas and basing what the lawyer of the prosecution is saying, it clearly states that Ancajas never saw RJ Bautista. It is crystal clear, it only means Ronald Ancajas perjured himself when he said he saw RJ Bautista around 90 feet away going out of the subdivision gate around 108 feet away.

Finally, what has been proven is that Niño Tabada and Ronald Ancajas in both of their statements and testimonies, that they LIED and PERJURED themselves especially in a delicate situation wherein they both corroborated on unfounded and malicious accusations against the siblings of the victim.
