Año: Officials should set the example in following ECQ

By Marjaleen Ramos

Interior Secretary Eduardo Año on Wednesday reminded government officials and law enforcers to serve as a good example to the public especially in the time of mandatory quarantine.



“Ang ating sinasabi sa ating mga government officials lalo na sa nasasakupan ng DILG, ito ‘yung tinatawag nating delicadeza, may mga pagkakataon na kailangan maging example ka,” Año said in an interview with DZMM Teleradyo.

In a Facebook post, the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) shared photos of the celebration of Sinas’s birthday, showing him blowing his cake and policemen lining up for the buffet table.

“That is a big no no, habang nasa ECQ tayo, wala ‘yung mga celebration na ganyan, ‘yung mga organized dinner na ganito, hindi ‘yan ano… delicadeza nga eh. Right then and there, dapat ipatigil mo,” Año said.

He reiterated said any form of mass gathering is prohibited under the enhanced community quarantine.

Ano, however, said he would let the Philippine National Police (PNP) to investigate the matter.

PNP chief Police General Archie Francisco Gamboa earlier said he will look into allegations that Sinas failed to implement social distancing during the celebration.

Sinas has not yet issued any statement on the matter as of posting.
