The Tulfo

'The Tulfo' was first published in May 21, 2012. Rappler is re-publishing in light of renewed interest in the story after couple Raymart Santiago and Claudine Baretto asked the court to subpoena Rappler documentarist Patricia Evangelista.

MANILA, Philippines - Ramon Tulfo is the eldest of seven Tulfo boys--all straight, he says. His father was a soldier, and so was his grandfather. He believes in guns and reincarnation and in the romance of the underdog, and that his hundred libel cases are a result of his fearless reportage. One week after he was pounded into the airport floor by former action star Raymart Santiago, the eldest of the brothers Tulfo talks about fear, faith, and why he is a samurai warrior. - Rappler.com
