Policemen Reportedly Punished Stroke Survivor Over Suspected Fake Quarantine Pass
CEBU, Philippines – Policemen reportedly punished a 59-year-old stroke survivor and made her walk for six kilometers over suspected fake quarantine pass.
Several Tagalog-speaking policemen apprehended an immunocompromised woman in Barangay San Nicolas, Cebu City due to suspected fake quarantine pass. The elderly woman is walking along Carlock Street to buy food for breakfast.
The policemen reportedly ordered the old lady to walk five to six kilometers as punishment. The cops also questioned the lady’s daughter why the quarantine pass does not have a seal from the barangay.
San Nicolas Barangay Captain Clifford Jude Niñal also revealed that the lady citizen had a history of mild stroke. The daughter of the elderly woman is worrying about her mother’s condition for making her walk from Carlock Street to Barangay Basak under the sun heat.
“Akong mama, kap naagi nana (og) mild stroke. Perting inita gipalakaw siya, kung gi-atake pa to simbako, wala jud me nakahibalo,” the daughter said.
According to some reports, there are other incidents of alleged abuses by Tagalog-speaking policemen recorded in the city aside from the stroke survivor. FREEMAN’s random survey at the quarantine control checkpoints shows that some cops are not aware of the standard procedure.
