5 Individuals Lined Up Early Cited with Curfew Ticket at Maginhawa Community Panty
Five (5) Maginhawa community pantry liners received ticket allegedly violating curfew after they lined up early to fetch free goods.
After lining up at the Maginhawa community pantry at 5 a.m., five people were ticketed by the Quezon City Task Force Discipline. They had a week to pay the P300 fine to City Hall.
However, Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte said that in consideration of some ticket holders who violated the curfew at Maginhawa Community Pantry, she will pay for it first.
“An ordinance has been violated. OVRs have been issued so the penalty must be paid. But taking into consideration the circumstances they are in, I will be the one to pay the penalty on their behalf with a strict warning not to repeat the violation,” she said.
When they were given the fare, one of those who received it said that they were simply daring to seek assistance from the community pantry. He wishes that they were just simply kicked out rather than given a ticket.
After Metro Manila and neighboring provinces were put under updated enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) until April 30, the city imposed an 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew.
“May curfew pa din naman tayo. Wala po tayong magagawa, ‘yan po guidelines ng MECQ, taga pagpatupad lang kami,” ani Rannie Ludovica, head ng QC Task Force Disiplina.
