Palasyo tiniyak na mananagot si Pimentel sakaling lumabag nga sa health protocols
SINABI ng Palasyo na walang exempted sa mga itinakdang health protocols kaugnay ng kampanya ng gobyerno kontra coronavirus disease (COVID-19) sa harap naman ng mga reklamo laban kay Sen. Koko Pimentel.
“There are no exemptions for any person on these health protocols. Those holding high positions in the government are enjoined to set an example to their constituents by strictly observing them,” sabi ni Presidential Spokesperson at Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo.
Ito’y matapos magpositibo si Pimentel sa COVID-19. Bukod sa pakikisalamuha ni Pimentel sa mga health personnel ng Makati Medical Center, nagparty at nagpunta pa umano ang senador sa S&R.
“The equal protection clause of the Constitution imposes equal treatment to all. Any transgressor therefore must be dealt with in accordance with law,” dagdag ni Panelo.
Iginiit ni Panelo na iniimbestigahan na ang mga alegasyon laban kay Pimentel sa harap ng iba’t ibang bersyon ng kwento.
“The reports being aired in the open are however conflicting hence, the Office of the President deems it appropriate that the same be formally evaluated by the concerned agencies upon a complaint or otherwise to ascertain the true facts behind the incidents,” ayon pa kay Panelo.
“The protocols set by the government for persons under investigation or monitoring must be strictly and absolutely observed by all people falling under the said categories, regardless of their socio-political status. They are not meant to discomfort or burden anyone. They have been established to ensure that public health and safety are secured at all times,” giit ni Panelo.
