Sunshine Dizon filed a desistance last Thursday, January 5, for the charges she previously filed against her estranged husband Timothy Tan.
“It means that we’re dropping all the cases against my ex-husband Timothy Tan. Siguro ang masasabi ko lang is, ultimately I'm a mother. It's sad that I won't be able to give my children exactly what they want. Masakit 'yun sa akin bilang ina na hindi ko na kayang ibalik 'yung dati at buuin 'yung pamilya namin,” the actress said in an ABS-CBN News report yesterday, January 5.
She had filed the following cases against Timothy: Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act of 2004 as well as concubinage (for his alleged affair with Clarisma Sison).
“Ang pinaka-pwede ko na lang ibigay ay 'yung gawan ko ng paraan na hindi masira 'yung relasyon ng mga anak ko sa tatay nila so that's why we filed the desistance already,” she explained.
As for the annulment, Sunshine stressed that her plans have not changed about it.
“Hindi pa po na-file 'yung annulment but we’re working on that. Inuna lang po namin ‘tong desistance tapos we’ll be filing the annulment very soon,” she said. “Masakit para sa’kin na hindi ko kayang ibigay 'yung gusto ng mga anak ko, so ito na lang siguro ang pinakapwede kong gawin bilang ina.”
The fight is not over for Sunshine.
“I think I owe it to myself already to be free of all of this," she maintained. "So, I'm also filing na din for annulment. Marami pong bagay sa buhay na kailangan na lang nating tanggapin na hanggang doon na lang talaga, pero ang importante sa’kin ngayon is ma-save ko 'yung konting pwede pang i-save na maibibigay ko para sa mga anak ko.”
When asked what other plans she has for other parties involved in the issue, she explained "Marami pa kaming hakbang na gagawin, hindi pa kami tapos. Ang tinatapos ko lang today ay 'yung kaso ko laban kay Tim.”
