Student Arrested For Allegedly Using Fake Travel Pass In Batangas
STUDENT ARRESTED FOR FAKE TRAVEL PASS – As the Philippines continues to battle COVID-19, travel between cities have been restricted.
Travel passes were made in order to limit the number of people going out of their homes amid the enhanced community quarantine. However, after two months, several areas have already lowered protocol restrictions.
Meanwhile, a 22-year-old student was arrested for allegedly using a fake travel pass in Batangas City on Sunday. According to an article from ABS-CBN, the student came from Laguna and was trying to get home to Soccoro, Oriental Mindoro.
The authorities were doubtful of the legitimacy of the pass of the female student because the copy was just in her phone. Moreover, the pass didn’t have the signature of Calabarzon police chief Brig. Gen. Vicente Danao Jr.
As per the article, the authorities found out afterward that the student’s request for a travel pass was still pending. Following this, the student explained that she was in a hurry so she resorted to using a fake travel pass.
The student had already paid bail for violation of the Mandatory Reporting of Notifiable Diseases that covers violations of lockdown protocols against the spread of the new coronavirus.
Even with the lowered restrictions, some areas still require quarantine or travel passes especially when crossing cities. These passes are empirical for any potential cases of the virus and for contact tracing of infected individuals.
