Grab Rider, Lugaw Pilipinas Seeks Help After Receiving Several Life Threats
The viral delivery rider from Grab and the Lugaw Pilipinas seeks help to file case after they received several life threats after the “lugaw” issue.
During the height of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ), the grab driver in the viral “lugaw is not necessary” video filed a complaint against the barangay chairman and officials of Barangay Muzon in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan.
Marvin Ignacio, a grab driver, decided to file a complaint because he was still being harassed, particularly after receiving threats on his Facebook Messenger. Ignacio admitted that they had been harassed in the barangay many times before the video of him being barred from accessing the delivered porridge went viral.
Ignacio said that he was forced to relocate as a result of the threats and that he did not return to work for a period of time. According to Atty. Michael Tipon, Ignacio’s legal counsel, they are reviewing the case that will be brought against the leadership of Barangay Muzon.
“Hindi po natin basta-basta palalagpasin ang paglabag sa karapatang pantao na naranasan ng ating complainant at para hindi na ito maulit pa” Tipon said.
Meanwhile, Mary Jane Resurreccion, the owner of “Lugaw Pilipinas,” was harassed by some barangay Muzon employees, forcing her to temporarily close her shop. She allegedly wanted to open her business later, but the barangay allegedly barred her from doing so and refused to issue her a permit.
“Nagbabayad naman ako ng tax, sumusunod ako kung anong rules, nirerespeto ko sila. Ang masakit lang ho eh bakit kailangan ipasara kami?” he insisted.
The businesswoman admitted that she lodged her complaint with the Interior department but was told that she would complain to the barangay. However, it was difficult because she was complaining about the barangay itself.
