Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto called out over possible violation of an act which was passed just recently.
VICO SOTTO – Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto possibly violated Republic Act 11469 and these famous stars have these reactions over the summon.
The news erupted online about Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto being summoned by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) because of possible violation of Republic Act 11469 or the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act. This came after he initially allowed tricycle to operate amid suspension of public transport due to the enhanced community quarantine.
Mayor Vico, in his plea previously about the matter, only had the pure intention for his people to ease the life of working people exempted by the government in terms of travelling such as the medical frontliners. But in the end, he followed the directives and his city gave financial assistance to the public utility drivers as help worth Php 4,000.00 as per previous report.
Meanwhile, the Bayanihan Law was NOT YET enacted when the young mayor plead to Malacanang to allow tricycles operation in Pasig. It was passed last March 24 and officially became a law. And according to 1987 Constitution, Article III, Section 22, a law cannot punish an act which was done prior to the passing.
