MAYOR LINO’S STATEMENT ON THE ARREST OF QUARANTINE PROTOCOL VIOLATORS IN TAGUIG
Sixteen individuals were arrested in Barangay Lower Bicutan for violating quarantine protocols last Saturday, September 12.
The City Government of Taguig would like to congratulate COVID Shield Task Force Commander Lt. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar for the arrest by his men, together with the Taguig police led by Col. Celso Rodriguez, of these individuals who were found in violation of City Ordinance No. 27-89 that prohibits drinking in public places.
They were also later charged with violating Article 151 of the Revised Penal Code for resistance and disobedience to a person in authority.
Taguig City will continue to pursue violators of health and safety protocols.
The city takes pride in being among the cities with the lowest active Covid-19 cases in Metro Manila.
Taguig’s citizens are mostly disciplined and cooperative but like any city, it faces challenges.
Taguig has activated a 1000-man Tapang Malasakit Disiplina team to help the Philippine National Police enforce the city’s new normal ordinance that aims to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Despite having early COVID-19 cases in March, Taguig is among the cities with the lowest active cases in Metro Manila because of its aggressive approach in implementing rules and regulations.
Although the city’s comprehensive approach is centered on compassion and education–partnering with individuals and institutions to fight the virus—the city continues to vow to pursue cases against individuals and establishments not cooperating.
